Erkaiym J.

Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan


Hello, dear friend!

I'm Erkaiym. I was born in Kyrgyzstan and I'm a Kyrgyz girl. My roots are from Naryn and Issyk-Kul regions.

After graduating from university in Bishkek (is the capital of Kyrgyzstan), where my specialty was an English teacher, first I was teaching English children and students. Further, when I had the experience to work with tourists, I really did like to be a tour guide.

I can speak Kyrgyz, Russian and English languages fluently. It is very exciting when you become eyes, ears of guests to show all the colorful life and nature of Kyrgyzstan. I would like to note that since I am a Kyrgyz girl whose parents are also Kyrgyz, I am able to tell you about Kyrgyz people from inside and to show the best places in Kyrgyzstan, as well. I am proud of being a Kyrgyz and being born in Kyrgyzstan. So, when I tell about Kyrgyz people, I tell my guests about our people proudly. As my friends say, I have a good sense of humor, so your tour will be not only interesting but also funny. My position is to be sincere, friendly and does any work with the bottom of my heart. I believe that if I do my work with the bottom of my heart, then my guest will feel it and he/she will be happy. So, if my guest is happy then I'm happy doubly! I work with my friends and corporate with friendly and nice Kyrgyz families.

Types of tours: VIP tour, individual tour, horseriding, culture tour, hunting tour, trekking, shopping tour, experience with a nomad Kyrgyz family

Types of shows: Kök-Börü Kyrgyz National Game, Eagle Hunting Show, Kyrgyz Carpet Making Show, Kyrgyz Yurt Building Show, Folklore Performance, Kyrgyz Games Show such as Chasing a girl, Kyrgyz wrestling, Kyrgyz wrestling on horseback, Pick up coins and etc.

I'm happy to organize a vehicle for larger groups, as well. Please contact me for a tailor-made offer.


A Recent Review of this guide

We had a fantastic tour with Erkaiym. She is a wonderful guide, very personable and took a lot of trouble to ensure we enjoyed our trip in Kyrgyzstan. She showed great flexibility in working an itinerary around our plans and we learned a huge amount about the culture and history of the country also. Our three day trip with Erkaiym was a wonderful experience and I'm only sorry we didn't have more time to spend here!
