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.

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!

Erkaiym was a fantastic guide for out two day trip in Chon Kemin Valley and along Issyk Kul lake and the Orto Tokoy lake. First she is very welcoming and friendly in designing the tour for your wishes. There’s plenty to see in Kyrgyzstan, and Erkaiym made it easier to pick and choose what might suit your needs the best. After arranging the trip she was very good in giving us advise what to see and do, and meeting up for the trip went super smooth. After seeing Burana Tower where she told us a lot of interesting facts about it’s origins and walked with us to the top of the tower we went to the Kok Archa guest house where she worked very actively as a guide and interpreter to make us communicate with the locals in a way so that you feel you’re a part of the family. Also when we had specific requests that was not part of the plan she made it possible within minutes. Erkaiym will make you experience and see this wonderful country in the best way possible and I haven’t got enough superlatives to thank her for the wonderful job she did for us. Don’t hesitate to book a tour with Erkaiym. You won’’t regret it.

Erkaiym was a very good guide during my day in Ala Archa National Park. In this short time period, hiking, we had an interesting speaking about the country and the visits not to be missed. She´s a friendly and positive person. Moreover, she helped me a lot before the travel in order to organise some practical issues with her good advises.

Was a really nice day with her in the park. I really enjoyed. I can recommend Erkaiym for your trips.

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!
