A French-speaking guide since 2004, I have travelled to almost every corner of my country. This has allowed me to acquire a wealth of experience, which I provide to tourists when building itineraries that best meet their expectations. I am passionate about history, economics and nature. This love of nature leads me to the mountains for horse riding and hiking. The Silk Road offers not only historic cities but also breathtaking wild landscapes. It's time to explore them.

    Un voyage captivant Nous avons pu organiser notre programme de visites en dialoguant facilement avec le directeur de l'agence, Doniyor, qui nous a donné des conseils précieux. Notre guide, qui parlait un français impeccable, nous a accompagnés chaque jour du début à la fin. Nous avons été impressionnés par sa connaissance approfondie de l'histoire et de la culture de son pays, ainsi que par sa gentillesse et sa disponibilité pour répondre à nos demandes. Ce voyage restera gravé dans notre mémoire grâce à la richesse culturelle du pays et à ses monuments architecturaux époustouflants. Nous recommandons vivement cette expérience pour ceux qui veulent vivre un voyage merveilleux.
