The 7 day Wakhan trip went exactly to plan. Everything was done as written by Saidbek to the last detail.

I had the pleasure to share the trip with Alek (a very knowledgeable local guide) and Mir (a very friendly and competent local driver).

The trip was the right mix of sightseeing and small hiking that I asked for so I am very happy with the whole experience and can recommend Saidbek and his colleagues 100%.

My feelings are that 7 days are not enough to do justice for this excursion. If I could make a change it would be to extend the trip to 10 days and include 2 days or so in Afghanistan. Perhaps it would be interesting to have more experience directly on the silk road.

In future I would be interested to also see a tour "in the footsteps of Alexander the Great" across central asia. These are just a few ideas however I am 100% satisfied with my tour and can recommend others to book their tour with Saidbek.

Best wishes

Everything was great! Saidbek organized for us an amazing trip with a great guide - Bobo. We had a wonderful time and were able to discover the beauty of the Fann Mountains. He tailored the trip for us and made sure that everything is satisfying. Definitely recommended! :)

The best trip ever from Khorog to Dushanbe via the Wakahan Valley and Afghanistan! Saidbek is simply fantastic, he recommend an amazing itinerary to travel in the Pamirs in winter, our driver Mir and car was perfect and the homestays were spectacular as well.

I was pressed for time and wanted to visit Afghanistan for this trip, before I confirmed my booking with Saidbek, he contacted the Afghan consulate to tell me exactly how much the visa would cost and how long it would take to get it. His partner Purdil met me when I arrived in Khorog and arranged the visa with lightning speed and even treated us to lunch and showed us around Khorog.

The homestays were all excellent, I had requested super warm rooms and all homestays made sure I was warm, well fed and well looked after.

Saidbek also has great contacts in Afghanistan, both on the Khorog and Sultan Ishkashim side, due to my Tajik second visa delay, I ended up crossing from the Khorog side and had a beautiful time with Masad and his family.

All through out the trip, Saidbek phoned up every day to make sure everything was ok. He went above and beyond to make sure we were enjoying our trip. I am so very grateful for his amazing service and would recommend him 1000%. He has really good contacts in every city it seems which was brilliant!

Looking forward to returning to Tajikstan sometime next year, Tajiks are one of the most genuine and heart based people I have ever met. Thanks again!

I booked the pamir highway trip with Saidbek and from the first moment he was really helpful and accommodating. I went in November, despite lot of people telling me not to go and hence I had lot of doubts but Saidbek managed to clear my doubts and the trip went very smoothly with no problems what so ever. Saidbek has been incredibly helpful throughout my trip and I could contact him whenever I needed to. The guesthouses, car and procedure were all up to the mark. The driver was really nice, caring and is from pamir so knew his way around and got things done. Thank you Saidbek, for a trip I will never forgot. I recommend all users to choose Saidbek and go to pamir, it's one of the most beautiful places.

I decided to stay in Tajikistan after doing the Pamir Highway and I am so glad I did! Saidbek organised a fantastic itinerary for me for Dushanbe to Khujand. Saidbek met me on the first day for a hike in Shirkent and then I had another guide and driver to Khujand. Everything was very well organised - I had no problems, and the guide and driver were fantastic. Saidbek also checked in on me throughout the trip which was nice as well. Thanks for a great, fun trip in Tajikistan

I went for a Iskandarkul day trip.

Saidbek is good at English and rich in topics and I had a very good time. Not only the contents of the trip we decided in advance, he got my request.

He was the best guide. I would like to recommend him to everyone.

It was an amazing 7-day trip through the Pamirs, many thanks!

We (a group of 4) most appreciated the great communication with Saidbek, both before and during the trip. He met with us in person before departure, gave us many tips and was reachable on the phone throughout the whole week. Certainly a very reliable and trustworthy provider. Our driver was also very kind, helpful and flexible, showed us the best places and was open to making small adjustments to the schedule. The trip itself was an unforgettable experience with amazing nature.

What would make such a trip even better, would be a English-speaking driver, especially if there is no Russian speaker in the group. Apart from that there were some problems with the car on the road that were still taken care of by our driver but could possibly be prevented. A small recommendation for groups of 4 people - go for the bigger car (6/7 seats). Three persons in the back is good for team bonding but not really comfortable.

Overall, a very positive experience and highly recommended!

Saidbek managed and organized the trip well. He followed up the trip closely to ensure everything in the trip ran smoothly.

The driver is very helpful and professional. He is also open-minded about my suggestion on the trip.

Thanks to Saidbek and the driver, the trip is so memorable and I enjoyed the trip very much.

Everything went smoothly! Saidbek organised all ground transportation and logistics for my friends and I who were travelling to Tajik for the first time. He was also often responsive to my questions prior to the trip, though I did feel that an area of improvement could really have been assessing the group’s needs to make certain suggestions in order for us to be better prepared for the trek we did in the Fann Mountains.

Saidbek spoke very fluent english and it was easy to communicate with him on matters. The guide we were allocated to on Fann Mountains, however could not manage more than a couple of sentences and it was sometimes difficult to ask questions about the country. That said, my friends and myself enjoyed ourselves plenty - Tajikistan is beautiful :)
