Elena was very responsive and most helpful in arranging my short tour to the south shore of Issyk-Kul lake which is a stunning area. I travelled there as a single person with a lovely guide called Ermek ... one of the nicest young men I’ve met ... extremely helpful, very knowledgable and courteous. I would highly recommend using Elena for a trip in stunning Kyrgyzstan ... and if you do ask for Ermek !


Everything was great! Super veggie lunch.

We had a short, but truly mind-boggling trip in Kyrgyzstan! In 4 days we got everything from early autumn warmth and sunsine to rainshowers and fog through sub-zero snowstorms and ice-packed roads. But the UAZ Buhanka did amazing in every conditions, comfortable driving on the road and cosy sleeping in it, no matter where you are. Thanks for Alex and Vlad for the easy-going and helpful service, we're eager to be back for a longer tour one day!

We really liked the guide and the driver,because they were really friendly and helpful and the tour with them was amazing. The lunch and the dinner were also delicious. 10/10


Alex is a great and truly helpful guy. He even bring Buchanka to our hotel, show everything which was important, took a practise ride and gave us lot of useful tips. He is extremely caring about his Buchankas which is great. The one we rented was amazing and we had perfect time in Kyrgyzstan. I hope that I will visit Kyrgysztan again next year and I will definitely rent the Buchanka again. Big thanks Alex. See you next year mate.


Great trip to go.

I spent 3 days with Sam my driver. We got on very well. We laughed all day long and sang Beatles songs together too. His driving was very safe also. Angela is very lucky to have such an impressive man working for her. He is a real asset to the company.


Look no further for a breathtaking, rich, and spellbinding experience in Kyrgyzstan. After my tour with Alex, I felt as if he’d truly brought me closer to the heart of the country. He is a talented facilitator and guide who was able to provide an extensive body of knowledge while we witnessed, first hand, the beauty of Kyrgyzstan’s landscape and culture via the Issyk-Ata Gorge and sanatorium, local (and delicious) cuisine, and more. We saw jagged mountains, whose slips were dotted with wild h...

We had an AWESOME time in Kirgistan, and mainly thanks to Alex! Not only did he trust us with his beloved vintage Buhanka, but he provided us with excellent advise and great suggestions about guesthouses. Much appreciated. Communication was easy before and during our trip. And the van itself... oh. Marvellous. What an experience. NOT your average rental car :) We mis her a lot. Definitely hope to be back one day and when we do, we will absolutely reach out to Alex again!


We rented the van for 2 weeks and the experience was very positive. The car is super cool and the assistance very effective. Even if we had some mechanical issue the second day, Alex send a person to our place in mountain to fix the car. He has always been present when we need advice and assistance, and he also help us to (successfully) face a police officer that wanted to cheat on us. We strongly suggest to rent Alex’s car to explore the wild and beautiful Kyrgyz’s mountains.

I cannot provide enough words of praise for Sergey and the unbelievable trip we shared in Kyrgyzstan. We hiked, horse rode and camped in the most beautiful mountains around Ala-too, Lake Keltor, Gorge Kegete, Chong Kemin, Kokarcha, Boom Gorge and Mt Kemin. We visited the Borana Tower and also made the Nomad Games to see Moscow vs Kyrgyzstan Kok-Boru which was amazing. We also Kayaked on Issykul Lake and visited the Osh Markets back in Bishkek. My personal experience with Kyrgyz people, count...

Thank you Sergey for the most memorable hiking in Ala Archa..i look forward coming back to Kyrgyzstan


We did a 12 day tour organized by Akai in September that included 3 days at the World Nomad Games, 2 days trekking up to Ala Kol Lake, 3 days horse trekking through Jety-Oguz and a 2 day trek/yurt stay in Song Kul. The itinerary that Akai prepared for us was wonderful, we got to see and do a lot in a short amount of time! Akai has a good sense of humor and is knowledgeable about Kyrgyzstan and sharing about Kyrgyz culture! I thought that the accommodation that he chose for us was really nice...


Alex is fantastic and a true fountain of knowledge when it comes to Kyrgyzstan. There isn't much he doesn't know about the country. He went out of his way to advise us on our planned itinerary, pinning places on the map that we would otherwise never have found, or heard of. We hired one of his bunhanka's for 2 weeks and, whilst the driving is a lot more slow going than we thought it would be, it was a massive amount of fun and sucha good and easy way to see this incredible country.


We visit Kyrgyztan for 9 days. The plan included the nomad games. We agreed to a program with Ms Marat, however on daily basis we made request to change our program. Ms Marat was positive onn all our requirements and made changes on the spot. On top of our requests, ms Marat made his own proposols to make the most of our tour. Exelent atitude. Ms Marat was alaways promt on time- not even a single delay. Ms Mart explenations were not a statdart borring guide. He added here and there det...

We came to Kyrgyzstan three months ago for our tour to the South Inylchek Glacier and back, organized and planned by Alex. Sadly, it didn't all go as planned and we had a terrible accident along the way which left me, my travelling companion and several others injured. Alex took full responsibility and did everything in his power to help us in the days after the accident. He personally drove us to hospital, made sure to get us a full refund and let us stay at the Blue Camel guesthouse for our...
