Zubair arranged a fantastic guide (also named Zubair) and we loved every minute of our trip. We had a Land Cruiser, safe driver (in addition to a guide) and enjoyed the laid back progression of the day with ample time foe hiking, relaxing on the sunny shore of Iskanderkul, and enjoying a local meal. I highly recommend Zubair and his team!

So pleased to have discovered Umed! Umed’s English, professionalism, friendliness and understanding of travellers needs ensured our trip would be memorable especially since the trekking part was at the end of the season. A great plus is his response to any questions prior to leaving Australia was answered immediately so we had great faith in him. Once on the ground, nothing seemed to be a bother and any little glitches were resolved smoothly. Umed’s Tajik hospitality and knowledge made the tr...

Tamriz has driven this route for 9 years and knows it well. He is a friendly and attentive driver and translates from Tajik to English quite well. I highly recommend him for this trip to Castle Karon/Kalaikhum. He found an excellent restaurant for lunch and called many possible onsite tour guides for me. He is straight on prices/costs. As a bonus, we took a short stop on way back to Hulbuk, a 10th century citadel. We arrived just after closing but Tamriz pulled some strings and the curator re...

I had one of the most negative experiences of my traveling life with Mirlanbek, who facilitates the guides. I’ve never left a negative review even if things aren’t great, and I travel A LOT. For those who do not want to read the whole story, Mirlan was verbally abusive with racial slurs after I questioned his professionalism in relation to asking for additional money hours after I was dropped back at my hotel, tipped the guide, etc., for reasons that were related to another shady incident wi...


Everything went smoothly. Thanks a lot!


I wanted to go for one day hiking trip to Shirkent valley. I got Sukhrob (manager) and strange behaving driver who didn't know the road and refused to continue when he saw the bad condition of the road there. Sukhrob seemed more interested in my money than actually delivering what I ordered. For something easy like Hissar you can use his services, for Shirkent look elsewhere.


Last week, I did a tour from Dushanbe to Osh, using Kubanych's services. I would like to give some feedback here. I booked the tour here in Indyguide about three months ago. The tour was designed for 11 days and should cost $ 95 per day per person. After booking the tour, Kubanych contacted me that he could not offer me the tour as I travel alone. Unfortunately, no fellow travelers could be found until my start date and so I had to pay a little bit more. That was fine for me, but I would r...

I really much enjoyed the tour! Zubair was organizing everything very well and I did the three days trip with his friend Zubair (they have the same name funnily) and the driver Behrus. It was great! I learned a lot about the 7 lakes, Iskanderkul, tajik history and traditions. Thank you for this unique experience!!


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!

Alex & brothers

We had an unforgettable trip with Alex from Dushanbe to Osh in 10 days (July 2019). Besides the nature, diverse of cultures, people, languages… Alex was one of the main factors which made this trip a life-long experience. He is an excellent driver, experienced with the roads and all the region. His car is perfect for this road, comfortable and in good conditions. He is reliable; gives you the feeling you can trust him at all. The home stays he chose for us were the bests, comfortable, beauti...


I have just returned from Dushanbe and Zubair is a fantastic guide very knowledgeable and passionate. He was flexible but well organised and exceeded my expectations. What I like about Zubair is that he is considerate about everything. When the city tour ended, I wanted to do the seven lakes tour he made it happen. He sorted the accommodation and transport at my request thank you for that. It was a breathtaking and memorable experience. His local knowledge and up to date information on ea...

Mr. Ali was very kind and I really enjoyed the journey with him!!


Indy Guide rating! In search of online travel information about the countries of Tajikistan, Afghanistan and Kyrgyzstan, I found access to the Ati Tosun portal. Then I found a travel organization about Khudogay, who organized a jeep tour for me and my friend Armin through the countries mentioned from 15 to 27.09.2015. Drivers, vehicles and the organization was great, all promises and program points were met. Overnight stays in homestays were appropriate for the circumstances, whether in T...


The tour with Turat and his son Abdulmazhid was really great! Turat is an experienced driver and the itinerary that we followed was also very good. We did the "Pamir Highway Tour from Bishkek to Dushanbe, 14 Days" in opposite direction from Dushanbe to Bishkek, because then you have more time to acclimatize before you reach the Ak-Baital Pass (4.655 meter). His son helped Turat on our trip and did that very good, so it was like having 2 guides for the price of 1. :) Both speaks good English, ...

Trip is very good!! Driver , Fez, is fantastic. Location of each stop is stunning. Homrstay and people are so generious & lovely. This is very memorable trip! Only thing to improve is at begginning , our car is too small and not proper as road is mostly bumpy but this has been changed after 5 days.


Turat was not only a great and experienced driver, but a real friend for us. He drove us safely from Bishkek to Dushanbe in a 10 unforgettable days trip, with amazing conversation that really helped us to understand local culture and lifestyle (Turat speaks good English). He was very flexible and patient to fulfill our special requests, and we also had the opportunity to visit his house and family. Turat's son also came with us for the whole trip, adding a young's point of view to our convers...
