Andrey

Our trip with Andrew was everything we were hoping for and more. He was very adaptable, created a tour just for us, and suggested a few things we didn't know about. Everything was at our speed, we weren't rushed though anywhere. His driving was very steady, and he sent us some lovely photos he'd taken during the trip afterwards. He also makes a mean cup of coffee! And helped us prepare a lovely lunch. I'd highly recommend Andrew if you want a bespoke experience at your own pace.

Dmitriy

Please beware!!! Dmitriy does not take responsibility like an agent. He only organises car and driver.Our driver Victor was great and we had a good time. Unfortunately, because we were not informed of certain conditions, we wasted a lot of time on our trip and out of the three places decided we could only visit two.We eventually only visited Kolsay lake 1 and Charyn Canyon. Dmitriy did not inform us that we were required to carry our passports for the trip and we only had photocopies.We were...

Soko and friends

We were a little concerned about the trip at first, being our first time in Mongolia, but the moment we met our guide Doya and driver Bagi, all our fears were assuaged. Soko took time to receive us and to send us off at the airport, and was very patient in explaining everything to us. Doya was an amazing guide/cook/translator all in one, and was able to teach us a lot about Mongolia's culture and history. Bagi (or "Joy" as he prefers to be called) was the friendliest and most cheerful driver ...

Maks

Travelling with Maks was like travelling with a friend. The booking and planning process went very smoothly and we discussed many options before we fixed the route. The trip was thoroughly enjoyable, comfortable, but still thoroughly adventurous. No problems at the Torugart border to China as well, he had all the necessary permits. Maks was very flexible, which was important for our trip, and adapted with enthusiasm to our wishes. He has a sensible judgment of risks in the mountain areas and...

Kubanych

We really enjoyed our 16 days in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan with Kuba and Nicky. Kuba was very organised, he arranged great accomodation and was always happy to stop for us to take photos. The car was reliable and comfortable and we felt very safe with Kuba’s driving. Would definitely recommend!

Vugar

Vugar is a great driver and guide - very knowledgable on history and politics of the region, very helpful on all organizational matters and last but not least a very friendly person who strikes the right balance between taking care of tourists and respecting their privacy! Fully recommend him to anyone travelling in the Region!

Saidbek

Saidbek sent his friend Farrukh to guide us at Nurek day tour. He was a very nice person and showed us the things we were interested in. The driver made stops where we wanted during the tour. I can recommend this guide!

Arman

This was a mixed experience, and things didn't go quite as we'd hoped. On the positive side, Arman was a very good communicator before the trip, responding to messages promptly and fully. During the short trip, he was attentive and keen to please, and his English was satisfactory. We also appreciated that he notified us in advance that the hot springs we were planning to stay at would be closed due to maintenance issues, and so arranged an alternative venue ahead of time. He also hired ...

Aigulu

We travelled in a group of 3 persons and were very welcomed by our hosts. Our trip was very well prepared and all our inputs have been considered. The guide was very helpful and informative throughout our trip. Highly recommended and will choose again!

Turat

Turat was a wonderful driver and guide. He has been doing this for 10 - 15 years and grew up in the area. He loves the Pamirs and knows them well. He was able to find accommodations for my husband who is paraplegic and myself at every stop. He was willing to change plans when we wanted and was very helpful in every way.

Assel

The Charyn Canyon was fine I enjoyed the trek over there fantastic landscape ! But I have to complain that there was not box lunch that you describe in your web brouchure as inclouded in the price of the tour.

Mirlanbek

We had a great time with Mirlanbek. From the moment he met us at the train station to the time he took us to the airport, he was constantly showing and explaining to us what makes Kazakhstan so special. He took us to "hidden gems" off the tourist route and brought a picnic lunch for us. We felt we had a "local" experience. He is knowledgeable, organized, thoughtful, and a lot of fun. We will count on him to show us more of Kazakhstan.

Beka

Beka is a great guide. Although we only had a few days in Bishkek on our recent trip through Central Asia, he made sure we saw all the highlights and gave us great insights into Kyrgyzstan. He is organized, reliable, knowledgeable, and has a great sense of humor. He is fun to travel with. I will definitely book with him again when we return.

Mirlanbek

We went on a 6 day trip to Altyn Emel, Charyn canyon, Kolsai lake and Kyrgyzstan with Mirlan. It was a great trip, Mirlan showed us great places and provided accomodation at local guesthouses with amazing local food (best breakfast in central Asia imho). He was flexible with our needs and could adjust it according to our requirements. We changed the trip slightly during the way, e.g. we went for a walk to Altyn Arashan, which was supposed to be a 3 hour walk, but we really liked the place and...

Sanjar

Sanjar is very nice, He gives us a lot of advice for our travel patiently. Thanks :)

Vadim

The tour to Lahij and Sheki organised by Vadim was wonderful! He was very professional throughout the trip, and included many other interesting stops in our itinerary which cannot be found in guide books. Vadim was also very keen so share many information about Azerbaijan and its people with me. Highly recommend!
