Great trip! Saidbek is professional and very flexible. We had issues with the road conditions and Saidbek helped us adapt the schedule as best as possible. Highly recommended!

Exceptionally responsible and professional!!!

We booked with Saidbeck because he was very responsive from the beginning and let me tell you that he took care of us from even before the trip started, guiding us through the visa process, and even double-checking them.

Once the trip started everything went very smooth, as planned and as scheduled.

Our trip was from Osh (Kyrgyzstan) to Dushanbe (Tajikistan). We landed in Osh on a Saturday, started the road trip on Sunday and arrived in Dushanbe the following Saturday. All as scheduled and programmed by Saidbeck. In addition, he had a plan B in case of road closures (our trip was in wintertime).

The homestays, guest houses, and hostels were all different, unique, cheap, comfortable, very welcoming and great food (15USD p/person including dinner and breakfast).

We had a different driver from Osh to Murghab (Zhenish) and from there to Dushanbe (Mir). They were both very responsible and skillful drivers. The vehicles were in good working order and clean. Zhenish knew his way to deal with authorities and we had no issues crossing the check-points and border. Mir, the second driver, whom we spent more time with, was an extremely charming and helpful man. We were lucky to have Saidbeck from Murghab to Dushanbe. He is amazingly knowledgeable, very polite, professional and caring of his customers, always trying to make the best of the trip by showing us very unique places, such as forts, shrines, temples, hot springs, historical sites and willing to accept any of our demands for taking pictures, food and whatever else we needed and also a licensed tourist operator.

We had access to electricity all throughout the trip, and only into places did we not have hot showers.

I could go on and on, thanking Saidbeck and his team, but I think the best way to do it is by telling all of you out there to trust his team and book with them.

BTW, I would recommend non-laced shoes as you will experience lots of taking your shoes on and off and also it was difficult to change Kyrgyzstan currency into Tajikistan, so take USD and that will make things easier. I used my Visa card and was able to get money from most places that had ATM machines, we had trouble with other cards and Mastercard is definitely a no-no. Also, you cannot use them in practically any stores not even in the major cites. So be advised, cash is probably your best option.

So once again, I must say, you won't go wrong with Saidbeck´s team.

We were a group of three , two irish and one Japanese citizens who made a late booking with Saidbek.

Whilst Saidbek himself was unable to be the Tour guide , he arranged for our driver and also for Purdil to be our Guide.

Everything was completly smooth fro mpickup to drop off. We were able to connect via whatsapp fro mthe start of the booking stage all the way throug hto the end with Saidbek calling us in the evening to ensure all went smooth. there were no language barriers at all.

we did then met Sadibek by chance in one of the gueshouses where he was leading another tour and he was extremely courteous.

No hesiatation to recommend Saidbek (and Purdil) + driver to other peeople. Trip was great too.

Saidbek organised a 7 day Pamir Highway trip from Osh to Dushanbe. The trip was very good- the scenery was amazing and we felt really welcomed by peiple in the Pamirs, being invited to have dinner at a local wedding party and tea with a family on different days. Our drivers were excellent and very friendly even though we spoke no Russian and they, little English. Saidbek arranged all our accommodation for us, which made the trip go smoothly. We highly recommend.

Saidbek organised our 3 days tour to the Fann mountains. I'm very happy with the service provided. The communication was very good and easy, no surprises. Saidbek called two times during our trip to ask if we are OK and everything is according to our expectations. We had very good driver - Maruf, who also provided to us a lot of information about the region and the peoples life and traditions. Thank you Saidbek and Maruf! Highly recommend Saidbek services.

Everything went perfect! Very good communication, Saidbek speaks excelent English, replies soon, offered the best price and the driver and car were good, arrived one day before to be sure he will be there on time.

Thanks Saidbek!

Our experience from Kyrgyzstan (Osh) to Tajikistan under the planning of Saidbek was not only excellent, but superb!! Although we didn't get the chance to meet him in person, everything that we had planned "virtually" with him through the internet went on smoothly.

One aspect that made him stand out from the rest of our past experiences was his care and concern for his guests. Every evening (when we have phone service access), Saidbek would call us to ask how everything went for the day, and to confirm what we were going to do the next day, which was then related to our driver, to avoid any misunderstanding due to language problem.

The driver who was assigned to us, Salibuy, is excellent and the best! He is a very experienced driver (and mechanic of his own car!!) and took us through the Pamir Highway, Wakhan Valley and Bartang Valley, like a true professional.

Overall, our experience has been an unforgettable one. In a country like Tajikistan, where many things can turn out to be different from that as planned (due to high elevation and unpredictable weather conditions), it is best to take it easy and go with the flow, which was what we did. Saidbek was far from us physically, but he fixed everything for us by just a phone call. Sometimes, he amazed us by what he did!! We can highly recommend this exceptional "fixer"/guide to all intending to visit his beautiful country. You will not regret it!!

Saidbek organized us 5 days trekking trip in the Fann mountains and 8 days journey through Pamir highway. Everything was great. In the Fann mountains food was plenty and our English speaking guide and the donkey owner took very good care for us. The scenery was beautiful and we really enjoyed the trekking.

In the Pamirs Saidbek tailored a good itinerary for us and was very attentive to our needs. Our driver Mir was for sure the best you could have and we had a very knowledgeable English speaking guide, Navrusbek travelling with us which made things smooth and easy. The car was comfortable and spacious and the guest houses Saidbek booked for us were much better than we expected. Saidbek also called us every day to make sure everything was ok.

I can highly recommend Saidbek and his team.
