Everything went great. Marat was very friendly, easygoing and experienced driver. We felt very safe with him! He speaks English well, so we could have conversations in different kind of topics, e.g. life in Kyrgyzstan. We can highly recommend him!


We went with Akbar to Kol ukok and Kol tor (arranged by Azamat). The guide was really nice and we had a great time. He looked after us, he is a great guide! Thanks

tara about A

I travelled a lot and askat is not the best guide.(the driver was really nice!!) Askat doesn't care about his guests, when we did a hike he walked a kilometer before us and didn't asked once if everything was okay. The driver helped us crossing the river, climbing the mountain and askat didn't look back and kept walking. When we ate at a restaurant or at the yurts, he just dissappeared when he was ready with his meal and didn't tell us where he was going. the driver always stayed with us...


Super guy... Everythink seams to be very good... If you re looking for someone who make things happen.. Alex is your man..


Maks is a great guide and a safe driver. He speaks excellent english and has extensive knowledge about the area geografically and historically. We went with him for a couple of days to song kul and south shore of issyk kul, and had a great time. Maks really went the extra mile to give us good and interesting experiences. Can heartly really recommend his services.


We've just returned from an amazing 4-day trip around Kyrgyzstan. Our trip would have been possible without the useful tips on Indy Guide! Given the last minute planning we decided to accept the offer from Marat, who ticked all the boxes - English speaking driver, professional communication, doable itinerary and acceptable pricing. From the start everything has been taken care of - from the airport pick-up, activities in each site, accommodation, local meals etc. Marat managed to keep the lo...


It is a very interesting and varied country


Very well, Kuba was very reactive and made sure we have everything we needed. So far, perfect :)


Our experience with the Kyrgyzstan nomads was fantastic. The scenery is idyllic and the family who received us was very welcoming. Askat also helped us negotiate the transportation back to Bishkek and everything. We really apreciatted. :) However, the guide we were given could not communicate in English.


We had a great 10 day trip with Ermek. Went across Kyrgystan, no problems whatsoever. Ermek is a carefull driver and drives a comfortable and reliable 4WD, he is good company and loves his kumis :-) . Definately recommended!

Kubanych was a great guide and communicated very well with me prior to arrival. He checked up on me constantly after we departed to ensure I didn't need anything. Highly recommended! No issues whatsoever.


Almaz is a very friendly, helpful guide, with whom we have experienced an unforgettable excursion. The 6-hours lasting horseback ride guided us through beautiful landscapes with mesemerizing vistas. The only issues was that our backsides severely hurt after 6 hours, but that is just the result of being inexperienced horseback-riders :).


Marsbek was very professional and courteous while also being friendly and easygoing. He was prompt with our scheduled meeting time and got us from Bishkek to Burana and Issyk Kul on a long day trip but never made us feel rushed. His vehicle was comfortable and well maintained and the charge for his services was very fair. I would highly recommend Marsbek to anyone needing a driver and guide.


perfect, thank you


Thankyou for answering all of our questions. We have paid the deposit and look forward to our trip. After a day in Dushanbe we hope to see a little of the Fann mountains Then 2 of our party will be flying out of Tajikistan from Khujand early on 21st July. We would like to organise for a driver to take us over the Azob pass? We Don't want to go through the tunnel. Do you have any suggestions for our 3 days?


Tilek was very helpful in providing us with choices and details for tours in Kyrgyzstan. We emailed regularly until we were happy with an itinerary and have booked a tour which covers all the places we asked to see.
