Kyrgyzstan City Tours

Kyrgyzstan is hailed as the adventure destination of Central Asia, and rightly so. Yet many tourists, in their rush to climb the next peak or tromp to every last waterfall dotting the terrain, deprive themselves the joy of discovering all that Kyrgyzstan’s cities have to offer. Each city - be it metropolitan Bishkek, ethnically diverse Karakol, traditional Uzgen or the Silk Road stopover Osh – holds unique sites and experiences that will enlighten your understanding of local culture and bring you closer to the country’s historical roots.

Kyrgyzstan City Tours are designed to acquaint you with the riches of Kyrgyz urban and small-town life through fun, informative and well-planned excursions to Kyrgyzstan cities large and small. During each tour you’ll be accompanied by a local English-speaking guide with historical knowledge and a good grasp of the city, who is prepared to answer your questions along the way. In addition, each tour is confined to a full or half-day program, enabling you to squeeze these day trips in between longer trekking or onward travel plans.
