We are really greatful that we found you! Our trip was more than perfect. Pamir Highway is amazing, but we are sure that 50% of that was thanks to Jamal. He was so helpful, he explained us a lot of things but above all, we was funny and kind so we have a great time with him. We highly recommend Jamal as a guide. Thnks for one of the best experiences in our life!

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.


Thank you Alisher for the services of Mohammed who was such a great and helpful guide and to Safar who safely drove us on challenging road conditions. Everything you arranged for us on this trip went smoothly, including the car and accomodation. But best of all, both Mohammed and Safar exceeded our expectations to help our trip more memorable. Thank you!

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.

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.


Shamil was the best tour guide we could have ever hoped for, very helpful and was always making sure we were ok. He went above and beyond. The home stays were great he chose and we even enjoyed a meal at his home in Murghab. His driving skills were great and handled the rough roads perfectly. Thanks Shamil!

Unfortunately we did not meet Turat after all due to unforeseen circumstances beyond his control. I am really sorry for that. While we were preparing for the trip online, Turat was always very helpful and provided exceptional service. He organised two replacement drivers for us who were also great. Overall we had a wonderful trip in the Pamir.

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...


The best driver in the Pamir. He knows the best routes off-road and all the place with interesting things to see. I hope to see you again friend!!!


Turat is the best Pamiri driver and best person you can find in the Pamir highway. He is an experienced driver and knows the road, villages, people, etc. during all the Pamir trip very well. He is open-minded and thinks about your needs every moment. Correct English and interesting discussions. Our travel wouldn´t be the same without him. We have very good memories from our travel! We hope to see Turat again and to do more and more trips with him (maybe Afganistan or to look for Snow Leopar...

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...

Overall, the experience was ok. A list of pros and cons: Cons: 1. the driver was unable to speak a single word of English. We were told that might not be possible to have a driver with English skills, but at least would have a basic. That basic skills didn't really exist, so sometimes it made the experience a bit hard. For the price we pay we really would expect a minimum of English skills. 2. Sometimes the driving was a bit too fast (for western standards of safety). But this will ...


Our group of three completed a successful eleven day Pamir Highway trip with Turat in his Landcruiser. We found Turat to be very professional in his dealings with us. He responded promptly during online negotiations , offered a fair price and delivered on everything he promised. Turat is very experienced at travelling the Pamir and has great connections with accommodation house owners and he always sought the best deal for us, his clients. He helped organise a birthday celebration along the h...

To anyone considering going through anywhere in Central Asia (and particularly Tajikistan) please read this review: Turat is incredible - he is the best guide, and even more, the best friend, you can find in Central Asia. We are two Canadian brothers - one of whom just graduated with a masters from Cambridge and the other who is studying at McGill in Canada. We are adventurous, we love culture and an experience, but we also have high standards. Turat delivered on every point - when we had ...

Turat, with excellent English, is an amazing guide and driver along the Pamir highway. I was a difficult customer at times and he kept his cool and managed to resolve all my concerns and went out of his way to get me what I wanted. He was very friendly and helpful and planned ahead to get me vegetarian food and western toilets. He really knows the area well and is knowledgeable on history, customs and culture. He showed me so much and explained so much more. His driving skills are excellent a...
