I am a city girl but I can sing traditional songs and dance in a traditional Kyrgyz way. Apart from that, I am a good horse-rider and have been exploring while riding a horse the nature and mountains of Kyrgyzstan. That is the traditional part of me. As a liberal I like my freedom and I love travelling around the world. So far I have lived in the U. S. for 5 years, 1 year in China and have visited Mongolia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, India, Turkey and UAE. Travelling helps me to understand what people are interested in, something that they lack back home/or something that is very different from their culture/nature.
I like meeting new people and getting acquainted with new cultures and traditions. Apart from being a tour guide and organizing tours across Kyrgyzstan I work at the Tourist Info center in Bishkek by providing tourists information on travelling in Kyrgyzstan, and in Central Asia in general. Last but not least I can help you with a combination tour of visiting major attractions in Kyrgyzstan/Kazakhstan and Tajikistan, the 3 countries that have a visa free or a simplified visa obtaining process.
A Recent Review of this guide
I have used Tours by Locals in five different countries and have always found the services provided to be excellent. My recent visit to Ala Archa Park in Bishkek, KG met all my expectations. Aigul did a great job. She was knowledgeable and helpful in planning the trip and during the execution. I enjoyed the hiking and also learned a lot about her country. Thank you to Aigul and Tours by Locals.
I have been working in tourism since I was 8 years old; as of today I have been working as a guide for 5 years.
All my tours are tailor made and can be customized to meet your needs
