Testimonials

Tailor-made at a low price! The Nomad's Land team prepared with us the program we wanted without costing us a fortune, on the contrary, we were surprised at the advantageous price. We were very happy with our guides, in Uzbekistan as in Kyrgyzstan, always attentive, and very flexible. We have changed our program several times along the way, without it costing us anything. From the moment we arrived at Bishkek airport, we immediately felt safe and comfortable with our guide. Unforgettable moments spent within the local culture and traditions. And the desire to return there soon. Nomad's Land was recommended to you by friends after a trip through the Tajik and Kyrgyz Pamirs. We quickly realized that the preparation of our trip had been complicated because we had hardly encountered other travelers on remote roads and trails. Without hesitation, we recommend this agency.

The week with Nomad's Land and Fabien was one of the highlights of our trip to central asia – thank you for many wonderful memories!

Michael Kraft

Nomad's Land were brilliant organising a week tour for 4 friends and myself. Fabien really listened to what we wanted. No cities, beautiful nature, some hikes and seeing the people.The tour he designed couldn't have been better. Our guide Alex was incredibly knowledgeable about Krygyzstan, he was relaxed and nothing was ever a problem. We loved our holiday, learned a lot and can't recommend this company enough.

We have visited Kyrgyzstan with the agency Nomad’s Land and we had a great experience with them. They planned and customized the trip to our preferences and they provided us very professional guide and drivers. They were in contact with us during the planning and also during the trip, which is very appreciated. In our case, we preferred to have an organized trip because we had only one week in the country and we wanted to do some hikking as well, therefore, it saved us a lot of time. We would defintely recommend the agency to anyone travelling to central asia.

In my first trip to Kyrgyzstan I couldn't have hoped for more in less time. This company and specially his guide, Mikel, provided more than everything we needed to make this not just a holiday or a trip but a wonderful overall experience. Mikel was superb friendly, knowledgeable, emphatic, with superior problem-solving skills (there were a few unexpected bits as you would expect in this kind of trips but thanks to him they were even enjoyable!), top professional and with everything you could expect from a mountain guide. In fact he will exceed your expectations. Thanks Nomad's Land for being such a fantastic company and specially to Mikel for making every second delightful. P.S. If you ever talk to Mikel, ask him to tell you about 'carronhita'!

Nomad's Land (Alex) helped us to plan and organize 8-days self-guided trekking in the mountains surrounding Karakol. It was our first visit in Kyrgystan and it was really good to rely on advices and suggestions of someone having mountain experince and knowledge of the local customs. The trekking was great, we started at Jeti-Oguz, then crossed Telety Pass, went down to Karakol valley, ascent to Alakul Lake, crossed Alakul Pass and went down the valley to Aksu. Nomad's Land arranged for us a nice trip from Karakol to Almaty by a private car, during which we visited the amazing Sharyn Canyon.

Thanks again Nomad's Land for this True experience in an amazing country still preserved from bad human behaviours. Please continue to share your passion about Kirghizistan.

Damien Gulluni

With the help of Nomad's Land we had one of the most unforgettable trips of our lives this winter. Starting in Bishkek we headed east towards Karakol where our adventure was set to start. We spent 10 days exploring the region surrounding Issyk Kul and Song-Kul, crossing valleys, streams and mountains on horseback with our wonderful guide Mikel. The experiences we had during our trip would not have been possible without the network and organization of Nomad's Land. Within a week of our trip ending we have already started to look at the other trips they have to offer and will definitely travel with them again in the future. While traveling in the winter is not always the easiest, the trip we had was certainly rewarding. If you are up for the challenge, Kyrgyzstan in the winter is a special experience that more people should consider!

Andrew Curran

We had a wonderful 15 days in Kyrgyzstan and wholeheartedly recommend Nomad's Land to anyone the country would tempt - and believe us it is worth it! The team is as competent as it is cheerful and dynamic, with a real desire for ecotourism (it's not just marketing at home and that's a pleasure) and exploring off-track trails. We were able to walk the Kyrgyz mountain trails alone in the world, at our (good) walking pace and having the impression of being Kyrgyz for a little while in our life. A huge thank you to all the team who greatly contributed to such a success of our trip, we hope to have the chance to come back to see you one day!

Sego Demoulin

Excellent organization due in particular to the efficiency of our (French-speaking) guide Nurbek. We spent a month in Kyrgyzstan trekking in the regions of Enylchek Glacier, Song Kul Lake, Sary Mogol Valley and Peak Lenin Base Camp. For those who love the mountains and the glaciers: to recommend!

Very reliable company and very helpful staff. The trip was tailor made and ended up as an open group tour with Mirbek as a guide. I can totally recommend Nomads Land. The trip was amazing and I have nothing to complain about.

Jessica

An incredible 8-day experience in the south of Kyrgyzstan, a transhumance with the Nomad's Land agency. Not necessarily reassured since a novice in horse riding, but well taken into account by Fabien our guide (French!), With a full day of discovery before starting the journey. What I particularly appreciated: the privileged relationship with the family. We made this transhumance with the whole family of Kyrgyz herders and shepherds (about ten people), our guide, and only 3 tourists. An exceptional memory to sleep in the middle of this family in the Yurt built a little earlier in the middle of nowhere. As much as following and leading the sheep in the middle of valleys, mountains and gigantic scenery. A big thank you to our guide Fabien for all his anecdotes about the country, who will have transmitted to us his love (even obsession!) Of the country! If you dream of wide open spaces, and are not afraid of the cold (the temperature can go down at night in these mountains!) Go for it!

Working with Nomad's Land was amazing. I was able to completely customize my 3 day horseback tour through the Chong Kemin National Park. The guides they provided were amazing. As a group of two women, we felt incredibly safe and well taken care of the entire time. Will definitely work with Nomad's Land next time I'm in the region!

Little given to write comments, this occasion certainly deserves it. I just arrived from Kyrgyzstan just a week ago, and what was initially planned as a great trip has turned out to be an unforgettable life experience. The imposing mountains of the country, its lakes, landscapes, the kindness and simplicity of its people have greatly marked in me the most pleasant memory that I will always keep from this trip. If the context already met all the requirements to become a great adventure, the presence of our guide, Mikel, has turned the trip into an experience that will make any lived image be accompanied by a smile. What to say about the great Mikel, as a guide he is extraordinarily decisive, and there were many complications that we were given, but he was always there to propose solutions to everything that happened to us. A great lover of everything he does, and always with knowledge, an endearing person and with a great heart, he has earned the respect and affection of all of us with the naturalness that characterizes him. And of course, he always guided by good humor !!. In my particular case, I lost my luggage on the flight stopover, and with little time for presentations, he managed to get my suitcase delivered as soon as possible. If I had to undertake any other journey, of course Mikel's presence would bring great peace of mind. Thank you for making the trip unimaginable !!!

Very good organization thank you Fabien serious and professional mountain guides thank you Lidia and Stas .t res nice itineraries and warm welcome in the yurts and guest houses thank you to Albina and Miralan and to nouiella and her parents.

Nicole

I found within Nomad's Land exactly the values I was looking for: An association on a human scale where the organizers (among others Fabien Selosse and AJ Johnson) get involved personally to meet the needs, requests and desires of the participants. An association whose goal is to discover - and even more: to promote - the populations and local traditions. They take us out of our European comfort with skill and control so that we can get closer to the reality of the nomadic populations of Kyrgyzstan. The local guides who accompanied us were professional, genuine and trustworthy. The landscapes are breathtaking. I was able to practice my passion for two weeks in a magical context and in all serenity. A unique experience, an exceptional trip! I only want to go back! You will understand, Nomad's Land is an association that I recommend 100%.

Alex was great with communicating and organising our custom trip before hand. The trip itself was fantastic. He knew the area really well and we had great fun, ski touring in the Suusamyr area. He speaks the local language and knows families to stay with, which gave us a glimpse into the Kyrgyzstan hospitality and their traditions. I want to go back and see more of the fascinating and beautiful country.

passionate, in love or passionately in love with Central Asia, professionalism, listening to our desires ...

Lacarelle Josette

I went on a great winter trip to Son Kol with Nomad's Land. It was well organized, guides were great, and left enough freedom for a real sense of adventure that group tours aren't always able to offer. I'd happily recommend them to others for trips around KG.

Stephen Lioy

Quick and efficient in the discussion prior to the tour. Both guides (ski touring and horse riding) were friendly & very knowledgeable. Highly recommended !
