Fabien and the Nomad's Land team were available, flexible and very responsive throughout the organization of our trip. Our Kyrgyz guide, Nurbek, was very friendly, spoke French very well and adapted the program to our abilities and desires. Hiking and horseback riding, lakes and mountains, incredible landscapes and an extremely warm welcome from the families who welcomed us in their yurts. We ate well, and never went hungry (but we enjoyed the homemade jams even when we were no longer hungry :). A magnificent country like Kyrgyzstan, which we have been able to discover in all its splendor thanks to the Nomad's land team.
