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.

Erkaiym really dealt well with a major setback we experienced and quickly planned an alternative course of action. She took a lot of really nice photos. Her brother/driver is also lovely and took us around Kyrgyztan very quickly. Thanks for the trip!

Our trip with Erkaiym was a real pleasure. We have been traveling with two kids (8 and 17). Everything was arranged as we agreed before arriving to Bishkek. Erkaiym is a nice person, full of energy, always ready to listen, answer the questions and help. She found a great places for us, where we spend a wonderful time surrounded by stunning Kyrgyz nature and hospitable people.

Before our trip she gave us a lot of tips how to prepare for yurt life, horse riding, weather and all other circumstances.

I had a wonderful trip arranged by Erkaiym. She was able to find a very cooperative driver cum guide to take us around Tar Su gorge and Song Kul Lake. The guesthouse at Tar Su gorge was a proper idyllic stay just at the lap of mountains. We also took a ice cold dip at Song Kul Lake. The food at the yurt in Song Kul Lake could be a bit better.

Erkaiym and Melis are the most perfect guide and driver to travel Kyrgyzstan with! Erkaiym provided a tailor-made 8-day tour for the both of us that brings us from Kyzyl-Oi village to Song-kul, horse-riding to Kol-Ukok and the Issyk-kul region. She is flexible and understood our needs well. The communication was clear, detailed and very prompt. Both of them are sincere, kind, helpful, friendly and have a great sense of humour. Melis is also a skillful and experienced driver and you will really need that in the mountainous terrains of Kyrgyzstan.

We can feel that they are enjoying their work a lot and it is like we are friends going on a road-trip together :) Erkaiym is really resourceful and accommodating and really know what you want. She is a great translator whenever we asked our host family questions and made us feel very comfortable. Thanks to the both of them, we get to enjoy this beautiful country in the best possible, non-touristy way and made so many wonderful memories! On the last day, they went all out to ensure that we are able to get back to Karakol safely. We couldn’t recommend Erkaiym highly enough and it was such a dream to tour with them and hope this is not the last :)

Me and my husband did a 7 day tour with Erkayim and Melis, who was our nice driver. The communication was very good from the beginning, when I asked her for a special itinerary.

Erkayim is a great professional, proactive, friendly, trustworthy, helpful, with a very good knowlege in Kyrgyz´s culture and history. She is also flexible and could accomodate all our needs.

Thanks to her we did a perfect trip, as she suggested the best places, family yurt camps, mountain views and trekkings routes. She even helped me with my fear of heights and my vegetarian needs!

It is also important to say that the fact that she is a local and speak both Kyrgyz and Russian was also extremely important and helpful.

It was a dream trip and I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Erkaiym was an excellent guide who was very flexible and friendly. We had to change our itinerary a few times due to schedule and weather change and she was gracious to help us find other alternatives. We had a great time seeing real cultural sites such as spending afternoon in country home with family to eat together and see how they make felt products and bread, visit sarahsi mosque, hiking, visit bazaar and watch her perform a traditional dance.

She also spoke English very well and was a great translator when we asked questions.

Would highly recommend her!
