My sister and I started our travel company in 1998, shortly after our country became independent. We aspire to avoid the negative effects on the environment often caused by tourism. This is why we are against mass tourism. We always try to involve the local entrepreneurs as much as possible so the revenues will benefit the whole community.

You need to be in good physical condition. Do not expect luxury as you will be living the life of Kyrgyz nomads. The average altitude of the tour is around 2.000 m.

    The trip was amazing! 😊 Noorzat & Azamat took really good care of us and did an excellent job. We had a blast in Kyrgyzstan and will definitely tell our friends and family about it. We're even thinking of going back for another visit to explore more of the country. 1. We had great communication with the team, especially Adri. They were quick to respond, answered all our questions, and gave us plenty of helpful information 2. Our tour guide and driver were both fantastic and did an awesome job 3. Staying in real homes and yurts was a highlight. We loved experiencing life with local families instead of just staying in places set up for tourists

    Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how amazing our trip was! We absolutely enjoyed it. There was so much cool stuff to see, especially that unexpected festival towards the end. And let's talk about the food and hospitality - top-notch! We also met some really nice people from Kyrgyzstan along the way. Having Aidai with us was a total game-changer. She was always smiling and ready to help, even when we dragged her along on those long hiking days. Chris is already keen to have her join us for his bike trip. I'm really hoping to go back. Not sure if it'll be in 2023 or later, but I'll definitely reach out when I've got solid plans.

    It feels like ages ago, but I had such a blast on my trip to Kyrgyzstan last July. Even though it's been a while, I still want to express how much I loved the whole experience and how it made me appreciate the country even more. We had time to explore Kyrgyzstan, which allowed us to get a better feel for the country - though we only scratched the surface of its rich landscape, history, and culture. Son-kul felt like paradise; I wish I could have stayed longer! I just want to give a big shoutout to the team for organizing everything so well and showing us amazing places. Nurzat was an awesome guide, always there to help and chat with us, teaching us so much along the way. Emil was a fantastic driver and companion, even though our communication was mostly through gestures! They put together the perfect itinerary for our adventure, and staying at the Guesthouse and meeting Elmira was a highlight too. But really, I can't stress enough how much I loved my time in Kyrgyzstan. I wish I had more time and chances to dive deeper into its history, people, and culture. Thanks again for such a wonderful trip!
