Mirzo Nazar

There are many beautiful regions in the world, and Central Asia is definitely one of them. Born and raised in Tajikistan I had the privilege to travel in the region since my childhood with my Grandfather, who knew a lot about the different cultures and history of Central Asia because of his diverse background. The travel experience and knowledge gained from my grandfather led me to tourism when I grew up. Since 2011 I have worked in different travel companies and have been guiding tourists throughout Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan along the legendary Pamir Highway for the past two years. My passion for travel, knowledge, and love for the people of the region have always motivated me to share it with tourists who come to these mountainous "stans", where they not only see breathtaking sceneries but also experience the authentic hospitality which is rooted deeply in the history of Central Asian culture. 

Now eager to share my knowledge and help for those planning to come to this amazing region, I am at your service if you want your trip to be organized!  

Contact me for any information or request.


My skills, interests, and hobbies: I am a good storyteller and know a lot about culture and history of Central Asia. I enjoy helping people to travel and share my knowledge, breaking stereotypes especially those about "Stan" countries. I like to get lost when I travel and therefore I always try new routes and go off the beaten path which in turn always brings me to some surprise.

Hi Mirzo,

How are you?

I just took a few minutes to write a recommendations about Indy Guide / yourselves, as below. Please let me know if you want me to add anything / write anywhere.

Thanks again for your assistance in everything.

I really appreciate working with Indy Guide / Mirzo Nazar who I would qualify as an absolutely necessary intermediary if you want to make a trip like the one we made across the Pamir Highway. We rented a 4x4 with the help of Mirzo. Everything went well. All hiccups were promptly and accurately solved by Mirzo Nazar. A big thank you!!!

Bruno about listing Car rental Dushanbe 28 days ago.

The day was awesome. Bonham and Jon are great guides, and very interesting people. We went to Hissar and then walk around Dushanbe to see main sights. They took me to a very nice restaurant for lunch. Most of it, I enjoyed very much their company, kind, nice and talkative people. I hope to be able to do some tour again with them in the future.

Ana about listing Dusanbe & Hisor trip 12 months ago.

Faultless service and a great, great day. From the initial contact through to the actual day Mirzonazar provided us with help, advice and well informed guidance. He is both knowledgeable and thoroughly nice gentlemen. Can't recommend him highly enough.

Andrew about listing Daytrip to Iskanderkul Lake, Dushanbe, Car 12 months ago.

Mirzo has been a wondeful guide for us during 3 weeks:

He is always eager to teach about Central Asia culture (his knowledge about central Asia history looks infinite).

Not only he showed us the wonderful scenaries of Tajikistan and the best places of interest. But he also managed to offer us some rich experience with local Tajik / Khirghiz people.

This trip could have been some regular holidays but Mirzo made it some of the best moments of my life...

He works with professional drivers using vehicles in good condition.

Perfect English skill.

Always on a good mood (even if sick lol).

100% reliable.

He takes care of everything even before we need and always fairly retributes the local people.


We booked a 12 day trip from Dushanbe to Tashkent (through the Pamir Highway) with Mirzo as our personal guide.

Everything was organized perfectly and Mirzo was always very flexible in changing the itinerary, so that we could see and experience all the incredible beautiful things in Tajikistan. He made all our requests possible (even the horse-riding trip...which was a lot of fun!).

Moreover he knows a lot about the history, the religion and the culture of Central-Asia and thanks to his perfect English, we had some very interesting discussions. The driver he operates with (Abdulla) drives very safe and his car is in a good condition!

We highly recommend booking Mirzo as a guide, because he is absolutely reliable and is giving a perfect service. On top he doesn't just offer standard trips, but always tries to find out unique things to be done (like hiking from the Silk-Fortress to a hot spring nearby).

Thank you Mirzo, for the unforgettable 2 weeks!

We will never forget the places we've seen...:-)))

Mirzo is a superb guide with excellent English skills and a deep knowledge of the country, people and culture. If we had more time we would have happily booked other excursions with Mirzo.

Do not hesitate to work with this fantastic young man, he is going to show you the best that Tajikistan has to offer and ensure your safe while doing so.


Prompt arrival, ample commentary, questions answered, fascinating scenery enroute as much as at destination, spontaneous village-home hospitality (non-commercial) at meal-break, some rough road patches but good driving.


Mirzo arranged everything for us for our one-day hike in Iskanderkul (food, transportation, etc)

He took us for tea and great food in local places, which was a great experience, and he explained us a lot of historical and local things. He is a very good travel companion - and the driver was very good too!

For a one day trip it was very nice but we would suggest at least two days, because there is much to see!

great experience :)


WOW! What a great week! Mirzo arranged everything perfect and also offers his help before and after the trip for other things to do. Driver and Crew were so friendly. Highly Recommended!!!
