Odil Akhmedov – Founder, Sales Director Odil Akhmedov started working in Uzbekistan’s tourism industry 24 years ago – in 1995. After several years as a guide and traveling to some of the most remote parts of Central Asia, he joined an international NGO and then founded his own company and boutique travel agency, Steppe Journeys, in 2012. In managing his company, Odil draws not only on his own experience and knowledge of Central Asia but also on the experience and advice of others: guides, hoteliers, local families who operate guest houses, artisans, drivers, travel partners in neighboring countries – all the people who make or break a trip. Steppe Journeys has gained an excellent reputation for delivering quality tours and matching itineraries based on clients’ budgets and interests.
