Train TicketsIt appears, that it is not possible to book train tickets for Uzbekistan online yourself.
I would like to get tickets before we arrive in the country (travelling for 12 days late July/August),
because berths on overnight trains might sell quickly. Also we want to get the train from Tashkent
to Urgench on the day we arrive.
I contacted Advantour, who say they can get tickets 30-40 days before the date of travel.Is this
a reliable outfit or does anyone have an alternative suggestions/ recommendations?
A search doesn't seem to bring up anything anymore...

1I used Advantours to book both my train and plain tickets before arrival in September. They were very reliable - I also used them for a transfer when I arrived and the driver was great - took me to buy some beers on arrival, offered to take me somewhere to dinner (it was 12pm and I wasn't hungry..), changed my money at black market rates as soon as I met him and he provided me my tickets.
I'm sure you can get the same services from other agencies, but I can recommend Advantours.

3Easier, Asiatraveller, but certainly not cheaper. It's much cheaper to get them
yourself in Uzbekistan...
