    A friend who has been living in Khirgistan for some years recommended Nomad’s Land to me and it was one of his best advices! The team is careful about customizing the trip and taking time to define the best program according to the budget and wishes of travelers. They also created a matching group (I came with my partner and we were 5 in total). I got sick during the trip and was not able to go to high altitude so the team reorganized an alternative one in a very short time. So despite this unfortunate event we did not have the feeling of ruined holidays, thanks to their flexibility and local contacts in the country. The whole stay was amazing: trekking, horse riding, learning about the culture and food (and vodka!) and having some rides by car with an excellent driver despite the traffic - hectic sometimes. I recommend without hesitation!

    The experience has been unforgettable, one of the best trips I have made. The country is wonderful and our guide Mikel has been spectacular, always aware of everything and all the members of the group, decisive to the maximum. He would certainly repeat himself with them and I recommend it.
