Kyrgyzstan Tour Reviews

4.5 - Excellent Based on 6 customer reviews
silk ROAD trip Reviewed Tour: The Silk Road
4 - Very Good
“A varied and inspiring (but arduous) journey through Central Asia, from the magnificent mosques and mausoleums of Uzbekistan, to the bleak but beautiful mountain and steppe landscape of Kyrgyzstan, this trip delivered what it promised.”
Simmering the soul on the silk road Reviewed Tour: The Silk Road
4 - Very Good
“There's never a dull moment in this full-on, activity packed, classic road and rail journey. Squeezing three contrasting countries into just 15 days is something of a challenge and it requires stamina, energy, good humour and an open mind to get the most out of it. With just five in the group, this felt like a private trip and the intensity and space certainly benefitted an excellent itinerary. Uzbekistan has the monuments, China provides the counterpoint and nomadic Kyrgyzstan oozes impossibly beautiful mountain and lakeland vistas. Throw-in the Russian influences and the echoes of Ginghis Khan, Tamerlane, Alexander the Great and Marco Polo and you have an intriguing concoction.”
The Silk Road in September Reviewed Tour: The Silk Road
5 - Excellent
“Overall a fantastic trip but not a relaxing one. Each country is different from the others and it feels like three holidays in one. Early starts and long journeys made for arduous travelling at times and the border crossing into China was a pain, but spectacular scenery and reasonably regular stops made it interesting and nearly every day had highlights to look forward to. The hotels were comfortable and the food was better and more varied that we were led to believe from reading previous reviews. I'd score it 9 out of 10 overall.”
In the footsteps of Tamerlane Reviewed Tour: The Silk Road
4 - Very Good
“This is a full on trip across three countries and at times travelling through mountainous areas on fairly rough roads. As a result this isn't the holiday to take if your looking for relaxation but the pay off is an amazing contrast of stunning ancient buildings, breathtaking scenery and mixing with people who have had limited contact with western europeans. At times we were being photographed as much as the locals! The tour really does take you back through the centuries to the time of Tamerlane and even earlier. The soviet restoration of some sites has been done incredibly well and we felt welcome in all of the mosques and mausoleums we visited”

“Great Trip with some administrative blunders”
Three Wonderful Contrasting Countries - A Must Visit Reviewed Tour: The Silk Road
5 - Excellent
“A trip of wonderful contrasts visiting three countries which having only recently gained independence from Russia should on paper be similar. Uzbekistan with its history, culture, beautiful madrassahs and mozques, and security; Kazakhstan with the flat steppe that disappears into the horizon covering 25% of the country (this is probably the size of Germany!) (admittedly we only saw the steppe and of that only a minute part); Kyrgyzstan with its mountains and lakes (75% is mountains). The two overnight and one daytime train journeys really added to the overall interest of the tour. Felt very safe everywhere and had excellent food and guides.”

Kyrgyzstan - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Sharing territory with the Silk Road makes any country interesting but a trip to Kyrgyzstan will be unique because the mountainous terrain has kept all of the culture inside, and the influences come through the Silk Road and being ruled by Russia at one point. While its ancient history might be preserved, holidays to Kyrgyzstan will offer a wide variety of people, religions, and ingenuity.

Tour Highlights

  • Get your breath taken from you with stunning views and geological marvels at Lake Song-Köl.
  • Find weather that suits you in the Ala-Archa Canyon, where you can sit by a waterfall, hike to a glacier, or mountaineer up the region’s highest peaks.
  • See where the Prophet Muhammad prayed at Suleiman Too.
  • Learn how ancient civilizations recorded their history by visiting the Petroglyphs at Cholpon-Ata.
  • Overlook the Pristan area from the Przhevalsky memorial garden.

Travel Tips

  • Try something new and travel by horseback; the Kyrgyz are known horsemen, dating back to Ghengis Khan.
  • If you would like to hitchhike, be prepared to pay for the ride; there is no such thing as a free ride.
  • Kyrgyzstan is a largely cash economy; credit cards are rarely used.
  • Use discretion when dealing with the police; they can be sketchy.
  • Safety of food and drinking water can vary by region.
  • Proceed with caution during the evenings; there is drinking and large amounts of partying.
  • Women should be careful because although bride-kidnapping is illegal, it can still happen.
  • There are flights that are available between Osh and Bishek, but the planes are old; on the bright side, the mechanics are well trained on how to repair them.
