We booked our tour with Atai just a week before our trip and he was extremely responsive and accommodating. Within this week we had to make changes to our trip due to visa delays and we were also going to cancel at some point due to a missed flight, with all of these incidents Atai was very flexible and didn’t mind giving us credit should we were not able to find another flight.

While planning Atai suggested a few itinerary options based on our interests and presented us with photos and videos of the locations before our trip. He even gave us a few car options to choose from.

We were arriving from Uzbekistan and his partner managed to meet us at the border and walk us through to Kyrgyzstan.

We drove from Osh to Bishkek over 2 days and then we did a tour around Issuk Kul.

We spent 8 days on a road trip in Kyrgyzstan.

Up to Bishkek we were with Meder, who ever with the language barrier, took very good care of us. Then we met up with Atai who very kindly invited us over to his family house to try Kyrgyz food.

Even though there were a few minor issues along the way both Atai and Meder always tried to find a solution.

Atai also has ties with some orphanages who need supplies and college scholarships, we visited a couple with them. I suggest anyone who is going to Kyrgyzstan pays them a visit.

One of the highlights of the trip was camping by the lake,

The one thing I would change is to fly from Osh to Bishkek and save ourselves the 12 hours of driving daily. The views and different climates we went through are out of this world and not to be missed if you have more time and could minimize the car hours.

In conclusion, Atai and Meder are both very reliable and great hosts that we highly recommend!

Tip: if you are not familiar with Kyrgyz/Nomadic food pack some with you.

All was ok.

Everything went very smoothly in our trip with Atai. The trip we took was a very long one in a short period, but Atai was a great guide throughout and shared with us everything he knew about Kyrgyzstan along the way. Always very safe and reliable, would recommend!

The tour that Atai helped us to organize went very well.

From the very beginning, Atai was very quick in contacting us and replying to all our messages and questions with a very good level of English (we personally met him too at the end of our journey). He was also very patient because we only confirmed our booking via Indy-Guide the day before the beginning of our tour.

We think as well that the agreed price was very reasonable, fair and competitive.

We want to mention too the good job that our driver - Bolot- did, even if some parts of the route were new to him. However he is a skilled and careful driver and a very nice, kind and reliable person. Actually Bolot became a friend who even joined us in some of our treks. It is also true that Bolot speaks a little English but we always managed to communicate and have fun together. He was as well very helpful to find accommodation for us, places to eat, directions and anything we needed.

In regards to the car, it was a very comfortable Honda Odyssey 4x4 Business Class with which we drove through all types of road, especially on dirt ones.

So we are very satisfied with the services provided by Atai and Bolot and I have no doubt that if I ever visit Kyrgyzstan again and I need a car and a driver, I'll count again on Atai and Bolot, whom I hope to meet again in the future.

Atai helped us organize a car + driver for the 3 day trip from Bishkek to Osh via Song Kul and Kazarman. Overall, we got what we paid for- the price was competitive but there were a few hiccups on the way:

1. The driver hasn't been provided with the preagreed itinerary and as a result we had to turn back to see one of the spots

2. The CBT accommodation in Kazarman wasn't provided to the agreed standard. Despite a two week notice they didn't have a private room with beds for us- we ended up sleeping on the floor for almost the same price. The owners insisted this was due to the lack of appropriate booking from Atai

3. The driver wasn't too familiar with the road and seemed a bit lost around Kazarman

Overall, I'd recommend Atai and his relatively new services if you don't want to pay over the odds and don't expect too much in terms of customer service :)
