We rented a UAZ Buhanka VAN for 2 weeks from Alex and had an amazing trip trough kyrgyzstan! Alex is a very kind and friendly person and is able to give great tips for your tour, because he knows the country and people very well. He is also able to get you a border permit and special equipment like for examle a WiFi Router, if you need this. If you would have any problems or just questions on your trip, you can contact him and he will help you immediately. The VAN was in a very good ...


Arranged a transfer from Karakol to Bishkek on the night before, no hassle, everything was perfect!


A dedicated, passionate and experienced guide, Begaly (Beka) customised the itinerary to meet our needs. He brought us to many beautiful places and guided us carefully on treks. We really enjoy Kyrgyzstan so much because of his guidance and knowledge about the country. Will definitely highly recommend him to anyone who wants to explore Kyrgyzstan or Central Asia.

I’m so lucky to have found Beka through Indy Guide! I was a solo traveller planning last minute, and came across Bekas profile which had great reviews from other travellers. Beka was very flexible to accommodate to my schedules and what I wanted to do, very timely response which helped me very much in the beginning to finalise my itinerary, and the price he offered for my package was very fair in comparison to other offers I received. My Kyrgyzstan journey would not have been as memor...

Aibek is a great guide who knows the area really well, in addition to his English skills. I had a great time! I’m happy to recommend him for anyone coming to the Bishkek area.


Kudos to the two young guides, Akai and Akyl, for making this a memorable trip. They were full of energy, and were very candid with their explanation of Kyrgyzstan's history and culture. Akly's family was also very hospitable and super friendly. We had a very delicious dinner at his place with his family. Would highly recommend this trip for travellers who want to experience the best of Bishkek in 1 day.

Great 3-day trip to Karakol. Rahat organised everything perfectly, I would highly recommend her and this tour! Thank you for everything!


Erkaiym was a very good guide during my day in Ala Archa National Park. In this short time period, hiking, we had an interesting speaking about the country and the visits not to be missed. She´s a friendly and positive person. Moreover, she helped me a lot before the travel in order to organise some practical issues with her good advises. Was a really nice day with her in the park. I really enjoyed. I can recommend Erkaiym for your trips.

Beka was an excellent choice for being my guide during 3 days around lake Issyk-Kul. He drove from Bishkek to Karakol and come back, all around the lake, and he showed me the main interest places during the trip. The same in Karakol and in the mountains around. He´s a really close, honest and friendly person. Excellent english speaker. He´s able to hiking in the mountain with an excellent knowledge of the area, showing the alternatives, and to ride horses as well. He was taking care about ...

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.
