I work as a tour-guide in Kyrgyzstan since 2017 and have experience in organizing hikings and cultural trips for small and large groups. I speak French and English fluently and can speak German on a conversational level, as well as Kyrgyz and Russian languages (native speaker). I was born and raised in Kyrgyzstan and I love its nature very much. I will be very glad to show people my country and leave the best impressions of Kyrgyzstan and its people.

4-day tour Colors of the Fall in Kyrgyzstan with guide Begaly (Sep 2021)

We (2 persons) undertook the 4-day Colors of the Fall in Kyrgyzstan tour with local guide Begaly T. in September 2021. From the beginning (outreach to guide and booking) to the end (tour itself) everything went very smooth. Our guide Begaly was very responsive to messages and even made suggestions to improve our tour. Booking and payment was also very efficient and smooth. The tour itself was amazing and we very much enjoyed being in the middle of nature. We visited Burana tower, Yssyk Kul lake, a Chinese mosque, waterfalls, a canyon, an eagleman, Song Kol lake and even experienced sleeping in a yurt at an altitude of 3000 m in chilly temperatures. As well as a never-ending changing landscape along the way. We stayed overnight in clean and comfortable hotel/guesthouse and experienced first-hand real Kyrgyz hospitality in the yurt camp. And we also had the opportunity to try Kyrgyz food in some of the small restaurants along the way. Begaly is fluent in English, a very good driver, very knowledgeable, flexible, ready to help and respectful of privacy and of the COVID-19 prevention measures. We very much recommend this tour to anyone who likes nature and who has a limited time to visit Kyrgyzstan. This tour really gives you a good flavour of the country, its nature, its culture and its hospitable people.
