My team and I have been involved in the tourism industry for 18 years, with a focus on Community Based Tourism in Kyrgyzstan for over a decade. Through our hard work, we have evolved from being local tour guides to becoming trusted professionals in the field. Our extensive experience and unwavering beliefs enable us to offer a range of authentic and genuine tour products. Having grown up in a village, we have fond memories of joyful days and evenings spent listening to our grandmother's captivating stories. This has given us a deep understanding of our people, nature, culture, and way of life.
