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 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.

- 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 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 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.
- 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!

Alex is fantastic and a true fountain of knowledge when it comes to Kyrgyzstan. There isn't much he doesn't know about the country. He went out of his way to advise us on our planned itinerary, pinning places on the map that we would otherwise never have found, or heard of. We hired one of his bunhanka's for 2 weeks and, whilst the driving is a lot more slow going than we thought it would be, it was a massive amount of fun and sucha good and easy way to see this incredible country.


We came to Kyrgyzstan three months ago for our tour to the South Inylchek Glacier and back, organized and planned by Alex. Sadly, it didn't all go as planned and we had a terrible accident along the way which left me, my travelling companion and several others injured. Alex took full responsibility and did everything in his power to help us in the days after the accident. He personally drove us to hospital, made sure to get us a full refund and let us stay at the Blue Camel guesthouse for our recovery. After all that, we still managed to have a good time in Kyrgyzstan thanks to the great help and support from Alex and the guesthouse staff and we were still able to take some good memories home aswell. Alex, I'll never forget how you helped us back there. Without you we wouldn't have known what to do and who to turn to. Thanks for everything.

Alex did an absolutely fantastic job organizing our visit to Kyrgyzstan. In our travels throughout Central Asia Alex is, without a doubt, the most thorough and organized tour-guide we have come across. He spent a great amount of time and tailor-made us a tour specific to our needs (family traveling with small children) and throughout the trip ensured that we were comfortable and taken care of. We are definitely going to book again with Alex when we return to Kyrgyzstan.
