      Splendid guide for Kyrgyz-Ata trip
      Sharing my experience from an individual tour to the Kyrgyz-Ata national park. The journey from Osh took about two hours but was so worth it! Particularly thanks to my wonderful Russian-speaking guide, Sharip. Having lived in the park as a child and then as a young adult, he had a wealth of knowledge on local places, customs and people. I have rarely felt as welcome and appreciated. I was fed the best of what the mountain fauna and flora had to offer, received a full concert on the accordion and slept peacefully in a cosy yurt. I would come back again thanks to Sharip and his son, Said.

      Food tour in Osh
      We did the foodie tour with Atabek. He was a fantastic guide bringing us to little spots we would never found on our own and explaining the food and the customs. Highly recommend this tour.

      Very nice city tour
      Atabek was real knowledgeable about the history and wasn't just showing the monuments he had whole stories to tell and I found it very interesting. I would definitely recommend him.

      Superb view of Osh from a local
      Wonderful historical tour with Atabek. We walked around the park near Central Square where he explained many monuments about the history of Osh and Kyrgyzstan to us. The best part though was his answering our many questions about modern Kyrgyz life, people’s relationships with the Soviet Union and even marriage customs. He is very funny, speaks excellent English and is very well-educated. He was happy to share recommendations for local restaurants and answer further questions at the end. Excellent tour for understanding more about Osh from a local. Highly recommend!

      Amazing cultural tours in Osh
      Atabek is a gifted storyteller-guide, who runs highly professional, unique tours in Osh. So much so that we did two: the foodie tour (yum!) and the bread making tour (much more than just bread making!). Atabek has a true passion to introducing people to Osh, and the perfect English necessary to do so. Highly recommended!

      Worth every penny!
      Amazing tour! Atabek was able to make all the historical sites fascinating and fun with his perfect combination of detailed information and good humor. We also loved his openness about his own life, which allowed a unique look into his culture... ask him how he met his wife!

      Excellent Osh Foodie Tour
      I highly recommend the osh food tour, it’s awesome! We spent three hours trying four different dishes at different restaurants. We also learned how to pick the perfect watermelon and we tried the three drinks you find on every street corner. Atabek is friendly, knowledgeable and excited about Osh and it’s food. He will take you to places you would never find out your own.

      learned a lot of interesting things about the history of the city, interesting places, got answers to our questions.
      Arriving in Osh, we immediately took a city tour to get to know the city better, which was conducted by Atabek. We had a great time, learned a lot of interesting things about the history of the city, interesting places, got answers to our questions. Atabek conducts both group and individual excursions, which is very convenient. He also presents very interesting tourist programs, which we unfortunately did not have time to use due to lack of time. Great guide who knows his stuff.

      Best Intro to Osh tour
      Atabek is a great tour guide. He is very knowledgable about Osh and is a great story teller. The way he builds the tour is around a narrative and he also brings historical pictures to enhance the experience by showing past and present. The tour starts at the Mayor’s office then goes around the park to the many monuments, and heads deeper into the city for a honey tasting and for some chalap and maksim drinks. I’d recommend this tour and Atabek in general to everyone visiting Osh. The walking tour is especially great for anyone who wants a quick overview of Osh. Atabek is also very accommodating and quick to answer questions about his offerings as well as other things to do in and around Osh.

      Delicious Food Tour and a must Do when you are in Osh
      We booked a Food Tour in Osh with Atabek. We went to four different places and tasted a varity of kyrgys dishes. Atabek speaks english perfectly and will answer all questions about kyrgys culture, lifestyle, politics, literature.. and obviously food. The tour had a duration of 3 hours but time flew by. Fun activity and a must Do when you are in Osh City.

    Atabek is a real wealth of knowledge about Osh and Kyrgyzstan; he's well educated, has a great delivery, and seems to have a really strong understanding of what tourists want out of an experience. His family garden (the location of the plov cooking) is a real oasis of peace - it's a little out of the city center, full of flowers and shade, and just an overall lovely place to spend an afternoon. After filling up on a massive portion of tasty plov, you'll almost certainly want to find a quiet corner for a nap. Highly recommended.

    We spent a whole day in Osh with Atabek and it was an amazing experience. The delicious plov cooked over a fire outside in the garden of Atabek's house was just one of many highlights of that day. We also visited different craftsmen and sights in Osh and the surrounding area. Atabek clearly knows a lot about Osh with its rich history and culture and he is very happy to share it in excellent English and a very comprehensive way. He was also very helpful throughout our stay in Osh with excellent recommendations for our free time. I suggest to everyone visiting Osh to get in touch with Atabek and you will not be disappointed! Thank you Atabek for such a wonderful experience in Osh and looking forward to continuing working with you.

    Atabek is a great young entrepreneur bringing life to the tourism scene in Osh. We had a fantastic day with him shopping ingredients, learning about the local history during a district walk, and cooling yummy Plov with his very welcoming family in the outskirts of the city. It was clearly the best experience in Osh we had, and by far the most delicious Plov we had in all central asia. Highly recommended

    I really enjoyed the plov cooking experience with Atabek and his family. The tour included going to the market and selecting all the ingredients and then preparing and cooking a delicious plov in a beautiful garden in Atabek's family house. Having tried several plovs after this experience, I can honestly say the plov we made during this tour was the best and most delicious one. All in all, perfect food, perfect company and perfect tour. I highly recommend it!

    As a single traveler arriving to Osh, there was no better way to getting to know the city and new people. The tour was a combination of hosting, workshop, and a little bit of walking, Atabek was very nice and answered every question in every topic from history to cooking and tradition, and the welcoming of him and his family was incredible! I recommend the great experience very much, one of the most unique I had in Kyrgyzstan!
