I cannot provide enough words of praise for Sergey and the unbelievable trip we shared in Kyrgyzstan. We hiked, horse rode and camped in the most beautiful mountains around Ala-too, Lake Keltor, Gorge Kegete, Chong Kemin, Kokarcha, Boom Gorge and Mt Kemin. We visited the Borana Tower and also made the Nomad Games to see Moscow vs Kyrgyzstan Kok-Boru which was amazing. We also Kayaked on Issykul Lake and visited the Osh Markets back in Bishkek. My personal experience with Kyrgyz people, count...

Thank you Sergey for the most memorable hiking in Ala Archa..i look forward coming back to Kyrgyzstan


We did a 12 day tour organized by Akai in September that included 3 days at the World Nomad Games, 2 days trekking up to Ala Kol Lake, 3 days horse trekking through Jety-Oguz and a 2 day trek/yurt stay in Song Kul. The itinerary that Akai prepared for us was wonderful, we got to see and do a lot in a short amount of time! Akai has a good sense of humor and is knowledgeable about Kyrgyzstan and sharing about Kyrgyz culture! I thought that the accommodation that he chose for us was really nice...


Alex is fantastic and a true fountain of knowledge when it comes to Kyrgyzstan. There isn't much he doesn't know about the country. He went out of his way to advise us on our planned itinerary, pinning places on the map that we would otherwise never have found, or heard of. We hired one of his bunhanka's for 2 weeks and, whilst the driving is a lot more slow going than we thought it would be, it was a massive amount of fun and sucha good and easy way to see this incredible country.


We visit Kyrgyztan for 9 days. The plan included the nomad games. We agreed to a program with Ms Marat, however on daily basis we made request to change our program. Ms Marat was positive onn all our requirements and made changes on the spot. On top of our requests, ms Marat made his own proposols to make the most of our tour. Exelent atitude. Ms Marat was alaways promt on time- not even a single delay. Ms Mart explenations were not a statdart borring guide. He added here and there det...

We came to Kyrgyzstan three months ago for our tour to the South Inylchek Glacier and back, organized and planned by Alex. Sadly, it didn't all go as planned and we had a terrible accident along the way which left me, my travelling companion and several others injured. Alex took full responsibility and did everything in his power to help us in the days after the accident. He personally drove us to hospital, made sure to get us a full refund and let us stay at the Blue Camel guesthouse for our...

With Alexey (and his Landcruiser) we had two great weeks in Kirgystan. Alexey knows his country in many respects very well, is reliable and flexible and extremely likeable. He has a big wealth of experience and a good network, which is very helpful to plan and to realize changing travel plans. The long car rides over land are a pleasure thanks to his driving skills, his ability to foresee potholes before you can see them and his comfortable car. Not a second we felt unsafe and Alexey manag...


Thanks to Alex' help everything was perfect. I can highly recommend his service.


I had a rather poor experience with Marsbek, but there were good points too: he was punctual every morning, and he was flexible when our schedule had to change. I had an eight-day tour with him, which I cut down to 7 days. In fact, the content was so thin it would have fitted easily into 6 days. There was quite a bit waiting around with nothing to do. Marsbek sometimes has a personal agenda which takes precedence. For example, one day was supposed to be a day trip from Karakol to the Jedi Or...


Aiperi was lovely & very professional. She was actually unable to travel with us, as she is expecting a little baby (I booked quite far in advance & she expected to be able to do the trip herself), but she greeted us in Bishkek at the airport, took us out for a night & made sure she found a reliable friend to take us to the World Nomad Games. Her friend Bakty was fantastic too. Aiperi was in constant contact until our departure from Kyrgyzstan to make sure everything was ok. I wou...


Had booked a 3 three trek to the Ala Kul lake with Aigulu. She was very quick in responding to the messages and answered whatever queries I had. Everything we discussed and agreed upon was arranged and the trek went smoothly. The guide provided during the trek was very professional. Even though im an amateur trekker, he made sure that I successfully completed the trek. And the food provided during the trek was also great. I wish Aigulu all the best and hope to see you soon!

We've rented the lada niva for 2 weeks and it was a very good car. Azamat and his colleagues were very friendly, professional and helpful. I would recommend to rent a lada from him for anyone willing to go off the beaten track in Kirghizstan !


Very professional tour company. Gullsia was a very knowledgeable and passionate about her City. Highly recommended.


He is 1 of the greatest tour guide I ever had durring my trip around the world!

Igor & Anna

Igors DELICA is a perfect car for travelling in kyrgyzstan. We had three weeks and drove from bishkek aroudn the Issykul, to Son Kul, to Osch, to the Lenin Peak Basecamp and back to Bishkek. Anna and Igor are very friendly, helpful and will support you with everything you need (camping equipment, border permit, good advices to handle meetings with the kyrgyz "police", just ask them). We brought our mountainbikes and Igor did provide everything to fix them on the roof of the car. If...


I had the great privilege to have Maks guide me on a 3 Stans adventure during summer 2018. Over the course of 40 days we covered 16,000kms throughout Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. I made contact with Maks through Indy Guide several months before arriving in Almaty. Having posted a broad query about my travel objectives I had dozens of responses from guides throughout the region. After exchanging a handful of messages I felt that Maks had the best combination of attributes I was seek...
