I am a 33 year old father of two who enjoys life and wants to share with the same treasure trough life bestowed upon me. Kyrgyzstan is an amazing place, and there is no better place to see how major cultures and political systems collide in one place, just like the way tectonic plates of Europe and Asia crushed into each other to form the great Tien Shan mountains that Kyrgyzstan is located in the midst of.

After spending 10 years in US, I enjoy a quiet life in Kyrgyzstan and offer my experience and knowledge of all things Kyrgyzstan as a guide and travel companion to open up the other dimensions that are not visible to the naked eye. Kyrgyzstan is an amazing place where Nomadic, Islamic, Christian, Asian and European philosophies make up an intricate and vibrant Kyrgyz society.

I invite you to explore Kyrgyzstan with me and discover your own Kyrgyzstan.

My skills, interests, and hobbies: I fluently speak in Spanish, English, Turkish, Russian and Kyrgyz languages. I read alot about world and Kyrgyz history. I like outdoors and enjoy every minute of it. I also enjoy woodworking and working my way up to build wooden furniture. But I am just an enthusiastic wood butcher for now. I like tasty meals, and enjoy trying new foods. Enjoy cooking when I get a chance. Love Mexican and Italian cuisines. One for it's richness and other for it's simplicity.

Missing Marc

Azamat has been my guide in the beginning of september. I choosed him because of his background (he has lived 10 years in the USA) and becaused the fees he asked for him and his car were not expensive.

And we have been utterly statisfied: Azamat came at 6 at the airport to pick us up, helped my friends with some tickets problem with aeroflot, made bookings with hotels and guests houses for a fraction of the prices offered by official booking agencies, found us the best authentical restaurants that Bishkek could offer. He has an incredible number of contacts, and has a gift for becoming friends with people. He is also very open minded, and was always enthusiast with our often-changing program. During 8 days together, first at the world nomad games, then all around Kirghizistan, we shared a real life experience, and at the airport, we parted as friends. I will stay in touch with him and when (not if! ) I will come back to Kirghizistan, it will also be to see him again. On behalf of the french guys, thank you again for the great time together!!!

Azamat is an excellent guide, really one of the best I have ever worked with (I photograph throughout the world and so have worked with many guides). Azamat speaks superb English - having lived in America - and also knows his country, very very well. He's patient, courteous and above all a lovely person. After 10 days on the road with him, I will miss him greatly! Oct 7th, John Kenny

Kyrgyzstan was a black box for us - we didn’t know what to expect when we booked our flights to Bishkek. Luckily for us, Azamat was nothing short of amazing. From the moment we touched down at the airport in the early hours of the morning, to the moment he saw us off at our hotel, Azamat was with us every step of the way. He was adept at describing history, knowledgeable about Kyrgyzstan travels, and resourceful with our random needs (SIM cards!).

Through Azamat, we got an authentic Kyrgyz experience. We visited a local school in Karakol, bought locally-produced honey off the highway, and ate great food everyday (ask him to bring you for samsa).

He was trustworthy and showed genuine concern for us, even beyond the Kyrgyzstan leg of our trip. More than a guide, we gained a friend in Azamat!
