Prompt arrival, ample commentary, questions answered, fascinating scenery enroute as much as at destination, spontaneous village-home hospitality (non-commercial) at meal-break, some rough road patches but good driving.
Mirzo arranged everything for us for our one-day hike in Iskanderkul (food, transportation, etc)
He took us for tea and great food in local places, which was a great experience, and he explained us a lot of historical and local things. He is a very good travel companion - and the driver was very good too!
For a one day trip it was very nice but we would suggest at least two days, because there is much to see!
great experience :)
Thankyou for answering all of our questions. We have paid the deposit and look forward to our trip. After a day in Dushanbe we hope to see a little of the Fann mountains Then 2 of our party will be flying out of Tajikistan from Khujand early on 21st July. We would like to organise for a driver to take us over the Azob pass? We Don't want to go through the tunnel. Do you have any suggestions for our 3 days?
We were met upon arrival in Dushanbe airport by him and his brother. Everything went smooth. We had a great 7 days using their proposed route. Most of the stays are in relatively comfortable homestays. I will recommend him positively to other people who have the interest to travel to Tajikistan.
Gulnara was always prompt in giving replies to my numerous queries and we also got the Tajik LOI quickly. She also helped us in getting a Kyrgyz travel agent who did the Kyrgyz LOI for us in competitive rates. Hope to meet her in person when we are in Murghab this Sept.
