          Great guide and tour - highly recommend!
          We enjoyed our 2-day tour at Issyk kul Lake with our amazing guide Daniyar. Visit Bishkek was very helpful in preparing us for the trip beforehand, quick to answer all of our questions to made sure we are comfortable. The highlight of the trip was our wonderful guide Daniyar, who was extremely knowledgeable (we learned so much about this country!), made sure all of our needs are fulfilled and that we had fun. He was flexible to change activities depending on the weather and offered us with optional activities during the tour based on our interests. All the meals, activities, and especially the conversations we had with Daniyar made this trip very special. Thank you so much, and we 100% recommend our guide Daniyar and Visit Bishkek for any tours and activities in Kyrgyzstan.

          Great two day trip to a yurt camp with a stopover at Burana tower
          We took a two day tour to Issyk-Kul lake with our guide Aijamil with a slight modification that included a stop at Burana tower during the outbound leg of the trip. Aijamil was mature, knowledgeable and very personable, and an excellent driver, The stop at Burana tower was excellent and just one example of the flexibility that was available to us - this also extended to the type of food that we wanted to eat, and the option to skip parts that did not seem as interesting to us. The yurt camp overlooking the lake was lovely with good food and facilities. On day two, we visited canyons and a waterfall before heading back. Overall, two great days, but a lot of driving so it may be worthwhile extending this to two nights if time permits.

          A peaceful day
          It was a perfect sunny day with my guide Maksat and the beautiful landscapes of the park. Maksat has so many knowledge on his country and the nature around us and he is very kind and helpful. I highly recommend Maksat who is a wonderful guide.

          Great experience with Aibek and Daniiyar
          I organized a 3 day tour with Aibek's company in April. It was very easy top talk to him and he was very helpful. Daniiyar )of BooGoo Travels) was our guide and drive for the three days. He was super in all respects - behaviour, knowledge, demeanour, driving etc. We went to Al Archa and Issyk Kul with him. He himself is a ski instructor and well traveled. I would recommend Aibek and Daniiyar highly for your trip to Kyrgyzstan. Note: the drive to Issyk Kul takes more than 5 hours and not less as many websites say. Ala Archa is a must visit place. Worth spending a full day or even more. Beltam Yurt camp is basic but manageable - they could do much more to create better experiences for tourists and make them more aware of the local culture and cuisine.

          Lovely day in the mountains
          We had a wonderful day trip with Aibek to visit the Burana tower and the Sanatorium. Aibek was very knowledgeable, willing to answer all our funny questions, and had a wonderful sense of humor. He was also very flexible with us allowing us to modify the itinerary to suit our needs. Wonderful wonderful day touring the mountains around Bishkek!

          4 Day Tour with Aibek
          I completed the 4 day tour of son-kul lake, lake Issy-Kul, Chui valley and Karakol with Aibek and the experience was excellent! Aibek is very knowledgeable about the history, nature, cuisine and folklore pertinent to Kyrgyzstan, as well as being a very talented photographer and videographer, he is able to capture the perfect photographs and footage which will provide you with forever everlasting memories of Kyrgyzstan. Whatever your interests Aibek is able to alter his itineraries to your wishes. I highly recommend any tour with Aibek and his company Visit Bishkek!

          Nice tour around Issyk-Kul lake
          Nice tour around Issyk-Kul lake. It is a good opportunity to see different part of the country like Issyk-kul lake where you can swim in summer time, mountains, canyons and to stay one night in a yourt camp.

          Beautiful Country with a lovely guide
          Kyrgyzstan is a beautiful country but many of the must visit lakes and sights are far spread across the country. The terrain is beautiful but very challenging to self drive. The history is varied and culture is diverse. This is where Visit Bishkek was so good and ensured that we a enjoyable and rewarding experience in this country. Aibek is a great guide. He pays so much attention to every little details. A man very genuine and very experienced in his field. The hotels and home stays and yurts were carefully selected and the food choices were adapted to our dietary needs. Changes, even if a the last minute, were gladfully accommodated into the itinerary. Aibek did everything he could to ensure we had a fantastic stay in Kyrgyzstan. I will strongly recommend his services

          Five stars, fantastic tour, highly recommend!
          I can’t recommend Aibek and Visit Bishkek enough as this was definitely one of the best tours I have ever been to. He is a great guy, friendly, knowledgeable and very funny, we had a great day exploring the canyon which was so beautoful. I was a solo traveller and felt safe and comfortable all the time. Highly recommend, thank you so much Aibek.

          Delightful Experience
          The day has been properly planned and schedule was properly executed by Aibek. Never a dull moment! Konorchek Canyons trek was challenging enough and will just make you say "wow" when you reach the canyon viewpoints. It will surely amaze you with how diverse the beauty of nature of Kyrgyzstan can be. Every drive/route was very scenic, like paintings drawn and moving right before your eyes. I highly recommend this tour.

          4 days 3 nights around the Lake
          Did the 4 days, 3 nights classic tour (song kul, issyk kul, canyons, waterfalls, karakol and hot spring resort). Authentic local experience getting to sleep in different yurts, eating local food and mingling with local hosts all of whom were very friendly despite the language barrier (different host/accomodation every night). Recommended. Enjoyed our trip. Guide was professional and prepared (brought folding chairs for lake viewing, extra padded jackets because ours were not enough to fight the cold, etc). Good safe driving. Thanks Aibek!

          Great tour of Heritage and Mountain Nature
          It was a very interesting tour. First, we drove to the Burana tower, visited the museum took good pictures. Our guide Aibek told us the history of the ancient tower. After that, we stopped at a local cafe for local treat kattama bread. Then we drove and walked till the Canyon. There where 4-5 stone barriers which we had to pass. Canyons were amazing. Even its winter day there was almost no snow. Reddish beautiful rocks surrounded the area. The 2,5 km walk was worth of seeing this beauty. Thank you Aibek for a great tour.

          Amazing trip to Burana tower and Konorchek Canyon
          We highly recommend this trip with Aibek! The correspondence before the trip was perfect and the trip went smoothly. Aibek was informal, easy to communicate with and had a great sense of humor. The scenery is amazing, lunch was great and we were very lucky with the weather conditions. However, due to the traffic, the trip was a bit longer than expected and lasted for approximately 10 hours in total.
