I am a professional driver with more than 10 years of experience. Growing up in Pamirs I know all the roads and almost all the potholes along the road. My individual approach leaves my clients always satisfied with my service and I like showing my clients the true hospitality of mountainous people. Along the road, I am a fun loving person and usually make jokes to break the ice with my clients. Come to Tajikistan and let me show you this amazing land and spend time with fun..... Jamal 

My skills, interests, and hobbies: I love cooking, and of course, my favorite meal is traditional Ploff, or as we call it here "Osh". I always teach my clients the basics of preparing a Tajiki ploff.

Jamal is, first and foremost, a kind, sincere and genuine guy who really seemed concerned about us having an enjoyable, safe and satisfying tour with him.

He is a safe driver and takes no unnecessary risks on Tajikistan's insanely inadequate roads. His car is sturdy and comfortable, and certainly a good model for those hours on dirt tracks. If you want to take photos you'll need to tell Jamal to stop, which he's happy to do, but don't expect photo opportunities to be suggested at every turn - the onus is on you, and he'll be happy to oblige.

Jamal's personal strengths lie in his relaxed conversational abilities, his desire to improve his (already very competent) English and his ability to know when to remain quiet during long drives...we appreciated that he wasn't the kind of guy who just needs to fill the silence and keep talking...after all, these stunning landscapes speak for themselves. In time, we hope he'll acquire more and more facts about those kinds of things tourists often ask (How many people live here? What's the highest elevation of the road today? What kind of place will we stay in tonight?), as he wasn't always forthcoming with this information - but this is a minor point and all except one of the home-stays he arranged for us were exceptionally good. The one in Jelondi hot-springs was not good, and in hindsight we should have asked to stay elsewhere when we arrived...a request we're quite sure Jamal would have accommodated, so don't be shy to make your feelings known, and he'll do his best to accommodate.

Overall, highly recommended!
