So, when i tell about Kyrgyz people, i tell about our people proudly. As my friends say, I have a good sense of humor, so your tour will be not only interesting but also funny. My position is to be sincere, friendly and do any work with the bottom of my heart. I believe that if I do my work with the bottom of my heart, then my guest will feel it and he/she will be happy. So, if my guest is happy then I'm happy doubly! I work with my friends and corporate with friendly and nice Kyrgyz families.

It will be an amazing trip with Erkaiym!

I was travelling alone around Kyrgyzstan last September and I took a horse riding tour guided by Erkaiym. Before the tour she was so careful of asking me what exactly I want and try to adjust the price. We did a 3 days horse ride trek around Kol ukok lake and Son Kul lake. She provides that we can stay with the local people and know everything about their way of life because we can life with them. Erkayim translated everything they said and try to explain me the shepherd’s life, a thing that I really enjoy. She also was very helpful every moment asking me if I was ok and comfortable and if the activities that organise were the correct for me and if I enjoy it.

Erkaiym is a very vitality person and so friendly. She becomes my friend and helps me after the tour too, when I had to go to the dentist by an urgency in Bixkek!

I recommend so much her as a tourist guide!!

This was my second trip with Erkaiym and it was brilliant! I was so happy to see Erkaiym again, and with very little input from me, she had organised the most incredible trip and was exactly what I wanted to do. Erkaiym also helped me book an internal flight to save me travel time which wasn’t part of her tour, but that’s just Erkaiym - happy to help visitors anyway she can. I always felt safe with Erkaiym and our driver, Melis, and they were both great fun. There was one day that I asked to change plans and they came up with a visit to a local festival (amazing!!) as the alternative. I have to say the Kök-Börü game was an absolute highlight and better than I could imagine..all thanks to Erkaiym. Other standouts were horse riding in the snow, homestays with Erkaiym and Melis’ lovely families, and Erkaiym’s passion for all things Kyrgyzstan! It was such a great trip, I’m bringing friends back for another summer!

Erkaiym was an absolute delight! I booked this tour at the last minute and Erkaiym set a great itinerary. Her knowledge of Bishkek was fantastic and we stopped at a lovely restaurant for lunch. In addition to the planned itinerary Erkaiym also included a visit to Osh Bazaar and dropped me back at my hotel. I really enjoyed chatting with Erkaiym and sharing stories about our countries. Terrific guide..thank you for such a wonderful day!

Erkayim arranged everything as she said she would. She was always answering me when I had questions on forehand and things went smoothly while I was there. We had fun talking and going to the Nomad Games. I would recommend the personal and lovely Erkayim to everyone. She'll make sure you can do and see the things you'd want to.

Erkaiym is a very well organized, caring and edicated guide. I traveld alone and she was a funny and open-minded companion. I had the most amazing time with her and could exoerience the real Kyrgystan. Thanks to her, it is one of my best vacations ever!

Erkaiym was great, everything went very well and she was helpful in adapting the schedule, organizing last minute request and just being awesome. We really packed our 4 days trip and wanted to avoid the tourist traps and Erkaiym helped us doing that. In sung kool we were received by the lovliest couple uluk and ayzjamal and their cute son Ali. It was a truly great experience. Erkaiym is also quite the professional photographer she loves immortalizing the moment and she is very talented in taking great poses!

I would highly recommend Erkaiym to anyone visiting Kyrgyzstan! Rahmat Erkayim!

Erkaiym organized a wonderful two day tour for us to Son-Kol lake. She is very welcoming and energetic, and made sure we were having a fun time at every moment. She’s also a lovely and trustworthy person, so we really enjoyed spending time with her during the trip. Very lucky to have found her!

The tour with Erkaiym was one of the best experience I ever had! It was really a right choice to choose her as a guide for our 4 days tour. She was so caring from the beginning when I started to talk with her with emails. I was first worried my high altitude sickness I might have in a mountain so I asked about this matter. She thought as my side and answered all my questions very quickly with detailed information. She even created easy level plan for us.

During the tour, I was so happy because two of my dreams came true.

One was to ride a house with my own control! And the second was to see the sky with full of stars and Milky Way! When I was able to attain these goals, she looked more happy than I do! She is such a nice person to be with.

She was always with us with a lot of care during our tour. The last day of the tour, she always watched us riding hoses and made sure we were safe.

Also when we are heading back to Bishkek I become a bit sick from high mountain, she helped me which products I should buy at the supermarket checking ingredients of packages so I can become better soon.

She introduced us her family and it was a nice moment too. She has such a nice family and I like them all.

The last surprise was as we arrived at the airport, we received a phone call from her saying if everything ok chatching our flight! I felt so safe and comfortable with her during my stay in Kirgistan!

Over all, I am 120% happy with her service and I hope you will also experience really good time with her! I think she will never fail your expectations.

Erkaiym showed me a wonderful time during the trip. The place has splendid view of lake and snow mountains. It is a nice break to spend the time just to do some walking, reading, horseback riding and swimming: - ) The yuk owner family are very nice people, nothing but best wishes to them!

Davy about listing 2 OR 3 DAY TOUR IN SONG-KUL LAKE 9 months ago.

Erkaym was really friendly and professional. She could tell a lot about the kirgiz culture and about the highlights in this country. Furthermore, we made a lot of stops to make pictures, because the landscape on the way to song kol lake is really beautiful as well, and it was nice that we got the time to take it all in. The tour itself was really well arranged and we would love to come back to Kirgizstan and do more tours with Erkaym.
