I would love to welcome you to the amazing country of Kyrgyzstan my second home.  My name is Alex and I'm from Madison, Wisconsin United States and I have been working in Kyrgyzstan as a guide/tour leader and previously a Peace Corps Volunteer developing tourism since 2014. I speak almost fluent Kyrgyz and I’m able to build you custom-made program to your liking.

  • If you like self driving jeep tours rent one of my Russian Buhankas 4x4 Camper Vans in Bishkek which are great for the Pamir Highway the M41.
  • If you love trekking I know the best places from first-hand account and I can set you up with the right guide and permits needed.
  • If you are interested in getting close to Kyrgyz culture you can trust me and my relationships with my local guides to show you the most authentic places and people.
  • If you are ready to ski bottomless powder here in Kyrgyzstan from Yurts in the backcountry I'm able to make it happen for you.
  • If you like discovering new places I would love to be your guide and we can make a plans to explore the most remote places in Central Asia.

Just picture yourself ski touring from Yurts in the backcountry with bottomless power.  Or picture yourself opening the doors of your UAZ Buhanka camper van to put on your skins to guide yourself.  Any time is a great time to come to Kyrgyzstan and let me help you make it unforgettable!

Let's find where the road ends and the adventure begins!

Goodbye Kyrgyzstan! I really liked it here.

Goodbye Alex! You put together a fantastic program for us, and impressed me day after day with your extremely positive mood and knowledge about both country and people. I hope we may share some more Kyrgyz adventures!

Everything was great! Do not go to Kyrgyzstan without talking to Alex. He knows all the good places and is super helpful at all times, he speaks the local languages and seems to know everything and every part of Kyrgystan. We rented a Buhanka from him and this is a great car (if not the best) to explore Kyrgyzstan with. So make sure to contact Alex if you plan on going to Kyrgyzstan.

We have rent the new Buhanka from Alex for 9 days.

We went from Bishkek to Tajikistan and the trip has been absolutely great! The 2017 Buhanka is a strong russian car, perfect for the bad roads of Tajikistan. Sleeping inside the Buhanka on the Pamir Highway has been an especial experience!

Alex has been very kind with us and provides us everything we needed (blankets, dishes and other stuff, tools for the car security...), we certainly contact him again in our next trip in Central Asia!

Thank you Alex, it was a pleasure to meet you!

We had a great time renting Alex's 1990 buhanka, although not for the faint hearted- it was definitely one of the best experiences we've had whilst travelling Central Asia. It allowed us to fall in love with Kyrgyzstan, and alex was such a helpful contact to have throughout our week driving. He gave us all the equipment we need (camping stuff), so our lives were made very easy before leaving. Also he helped us with a route so we got the most out of our trip. Would highly reccomend it for anyone!

I took Alex's tour 'Day Tour to Burana Tower'.

I'm sorry that he couldn't come, but he arranged a guide and a driver for me immediately.

They were very nice too.

I could spend an interesting time with wonderful natures.

He also allowed my will of arrangement.

And he is kind, he worried about me and he contacted me during the tour.

I'm satisfied very much.

I want to recommend his tour to everyone.
