Terrific Trevelor! 🇰🇬 We contacted Islam from Trevelor just a week before we wanted to visit Kyrgyzstan and all we did was let him know when we’d be arriving and departing, our likes when travelling and he then organised the most incredible tour for us! Kyrgyzstan is the most beautiful country and Islam certainly took us to many highlights with some special touches along the way like the picnic we had overlooking the most stunning valley! Islam was a very safe driver, he was most knowledgeable about Kyrgyzstan and spoke perfect English. Islam was also very patient and able to adapt plans without fuss when road conditions prevented us from our original plan - the alternative plan was quickly made and just as good. We cannot recommend Islam (and Trevelor) enough and cannot thank him (and Trevelor) enough for our unforgettable Kyrgyzstan trip. Visit Kyrgyzstan with Islam (and Trevelor) you’ll be so glad you did 🇰🇬♥️

Unforgettable Snow Horseback Ride to Altyn Arashan Islam was a great help to me when I needed it the most. Having arrived in Karakol after hitchhiking from Bishkek in low season, I found Islam's/Trevelor's phone number on Google Maps and gave them a call. Islam quickly assessed the situation, made a few following phone calls, and arranged an itinerary that satisfied all my needs, all while he was out of town. Islam was a true professional and is a guide I would gladly recommend you speak with.
