5 reasons why you should travel with Damir:
1. Transport - Kyrgyzstan is a small country but to get to the most beautiful places you need to use individual transport. Usage of public transport is extremely hard and time-consuming option. In the other hand you can use taxi but it's much more expansive and also it takes a lot of time. In that point I want to tell that Damir has really good off-road car.
2. Mountain guid. Because Kyrgyzstan has lack of marked mountain trails it's really hard to don't get lost there and only way to get to the destination is to have mountain guid such as Damir.
3. Kyrgyz food. We've met a lot of travelers whose where really disappointed of local food but we can't tell it about us. Thanks to Damirs knowledge of best places where we could eat our dishes was always perfect.
4. Accommodation. Because of Damir experience we always slept in most beautiful, comfortable and quiet places.
5. Professional service. Damir is kind of really friendship person who can also adjust for your vision of travelling. With him you don't really feel that he is a guid but you feel that he is a true friend.

Damir drove us over long distances for five days. He was a really carefull skilled driver we always felt safe with.
He speaks good english, is knowledable, and we had wide ranging discussions on many subjects as well as meeting many members of his family something many travelers like us, treasure.
Damir will find you local food, help you organize and buy stuff if you wished. Tell him what accommodation you want whether it be homestay with a bucket to wash out of but maybe a fresh tomato to pick for breakfast, or a hotel of any standard you want. Thanks Damir, won't forget you.

My idea of traveling is to connect with the local people of respective country and hang out with them to extract more information about their living, culture and other interesting facts. Damir, he's The Right Guy if you are looking to explore around the great country 'Kyrgyzstan'. Having born and raised there, he is well versed with the geography. But what makes his different than others, is his passion for traveling and immense repsect for his country and urge to grow the tourism. Also to spread awareness about beauty of this great nation. Leaving a good day job behind and getting into a tourism business which is quite deserted in this area is quite a challenge but Damir has taken it on his shoulders and doing it effectively. Good luck Damir! And would definitely meet again! You made my trip awesome. Take care brother.

Without doubt Kyrgyzstan is beautiful country, to me this country is a dream country. Upon my arrival I was warmly welcome from the owner of company Damir himself. He straight took me to breakfast which was one of the finest experience for me. Overall Damir is very flexible with activities and he was always available when ever I wanted the tour to be arranged. He took me to whole city tour of Bishkek and told me about city. Next day we went to Chong Kemin where he ensured I get the best horse ride with best guide along. Usually people doesn't take you that inside the valley and take you on a very short trip. I had the best time of my life there. Next day we went to Ala Archa and Osh bazar. All the tours were private and he ensured to did his best. I have been travelling arround but guide like Damir is gem of a heart. My loads of thanks to wishes to this man. Last but not least I did my research in package prices and his prices were the best!

It’s pleasure to have met a nice guy like Damir. He helped me with a lot of things such as transportation, accommodation, giving me a mini tour etc. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have been able to have as much fun as I had! I think in a country such as Kyrgyzstan, it is very difficult to travel without local people who speak English or your language unless you speak local language, so I highly recommend that you ask this guy to help you. Also I really appreciate his kindness of taking me to the airport to see me off even though it was midnight. Thank you, Damir. See you again!

I booked a 9-day trip with Damir and, thanks to his knowledge, friendliness and hard work, it has been a truly enjoyable and unforgettable experience! I was looking for an authentic cultural and nature experience and couldn't be happier. We did North of Issyk Kul, amazing mountains in Jeti Oguz, south of Issyk Kul (with fairy tale canyon), superb horse riding in Song Kol, great trekking to Kol Tor and a taste of the South including a boat ride in fantastic Sary Chelek lake! Overall, totally recommendable to visit Kyrgyzstan and I can't imagine a better option than to do it with Twins: great value for money and complete personalisation of the trip. Enjoy!!

We had a great 5-day trip with Damir. We went from Bishkek to Sary Chelek, spending two nights camping near the lakes. The best part was that Damir is very flexible, so we could make changes to the plan as we learned more when we reached Kyrgyzstan. He worked with a good local guide who took us hiking around the lakes in Sary Chelek. Having a guide is the best way to see Kyrgyzstan as you get to places you'd otherwise struggle to find or reach and you get meet local people much easier.

We just got back from an incredible adventure exploring Kyrgyzstan with Kyrgyz Twins Adventures and it was truely the exerience of a lifetime. We found our guide Damir online, and chose him based on the great reviews we had read. From the outset, Damir's communication was clear and informative and within a few emails back and forth we had built our bespoke Kyrgyz itinerary.

Damir was waiting for us at the airport as we arrived to collect us in a perfect condition 4x4 ready to hit the road. We spent the next week exploring the vast, varied and beautiful countryside of Kyrgyzstan, swimming in high-alpine lakes, horse riding through valleys, paragliding and staying in yurt camps in the mountains, hiking by day and star-gazing by night. If you're looking for adventure, then this is for you!

Why should you choose Damir?
- Knowledgable about wildlife, the geography and local culture and customs.
- Great connections to arrange unique experiences off the tourist trail. Staying with a family in a traditional yurt camp 3000m up in the mountains was a once in a lifetime experience.
- Very safe and comfortable driving and vehicle for those long and (very) bumpy roads.
- He's a massive foodie just like us, who would have thought Kyrgyzstan would have some of the best food in the world?! And you would not find the authentic places without the local knowledge.

Couldn't recommend Damir more and we are so grateful to have had such an amazing time in Kyrgyzstan.

We are very glad to have engaged Damir for a 8-day tour around the beautiful Kyrgyzstan. Prior to the trip, Damir was very helpful and responsive in answering all our questions. He also made sure to check in with us before our flight and when we landed in Bishkek.
Damir was also able to accommodate to our requests and change the itinerary accordingly, which was great. He is very knowledgable about the country and was very willing to share with us information about Kyrgyzstan. Damir is a good driver and he made sure that we get from places to places safely every day. He also brought us to local restaurants and introduced to us Kyrgyzstan's cuisine which we enjoyed a lot. Damir is also very friendly and welcoming; after the trip, we felt like we had made a friend in Kyrgyzstan.
We had an excellent time in Kyrgyzstan, thanks to Damir's warm hospitality! Kyrgyzstan is a really beautiful place.

Damir, the founder of Kyrgyz Twins Adventures accompanied me and my dear friend, Hayati during our six day tour of this picturesque and interesting hidden gem. Our tour started of with Osh and followed by Arslanbob-Toktogul Dam-Suusamyr Valley-Kyzyl Oi village-Issyk Kol-Bokonbaev-Fairy Tale Canyon-Tamga and ended in Bishkek. We had a few specific requests for the tour like having local food in places frequented by the locals. We also requested Damir to let us stay in local and traditional houses. Damir very kindly fulfilled our requests. We got to taste almost all local food that was on our list. Despite the long distance between the places we visited, we had fun all through out the journey. Both of us like to take photos, a lot of them and are very particular about it. Thank God for Damir's photo-taking skills and more importantly patience;) The tour was properly organized and allowed us enough time to really enjoy every bit of our trip. The accommodations selected were great with very welcoming hosts. Damir took good care of us and fulfilled all our spontaneous request with no questions asked. Terima kasih Damir Ake for a true adventure in this hidden gem awaiting to be discovered. We are already discussing for a second visit next year, InsyaAllah!;)

Kyrgyzstan - it's a must to see! A place beauty with it's nature. We've spent almost two weeks horse riding in Kyrgyzstan with Damir and TWINS. These were two exiting weeks and beautiful moments for us (three friends from Poland). We could feel safe and comfortable all the time. We could see many, beautiful places, sleep in yurts, ride brave horses and meet great people. All these memories will stay with us for the rest of life.
Don't worry about anything...If there is something You didn't think about... be sure Damir did :)! Great memories from beauty places, thanks to Damir!

Hi everybody, I want recommended about TWINS tour by Damir. We were 2 friends who travel in Kyrgyzstan by the end of October 2019, it was little it out of season, Couse summer time we couldn’t get any holidays. Damir did his best that we explore as much as we can at the 8 days we have been with him. Combination of nature, culture, amazing sites, all was fantastic and well organized.

The car was 4x4 and comfy. The guesthouses and the hotels was clean and comfy; it was amazing experience. The food was tasty and fresh and the restaurant was clean and pleasant. He organized the itinerary at the best way he can and its was excellent. Damir have a lot of information and the knowledge about the country and history.

The communication with him was smooth by email and whatsapp in perfect English. I just want let u know I checked with many agencies that offered me higher price with non-full board meal plan. We got 3 meals per day at very low price of whole the trip. Damir was so nice with us and didn’t asked for deposit ahead we really appreacheat that. The tour was amazing we stayed with a lot of lovely memories, he also makes us nice movie at youtube with our great memories. We really recommend book your next amazing trip to Kyrgyzstan with Twins tour by Damir. Don’t think twice you in good hands.

Damir ist der beste Reiseführer den ich je hatte. Twins zu finden war ein reiner Zufall. Der Kontakt fing schon 1,5 Woche vor meiner Reise an. Ich habe Damir unzählige Fragen zu meiner Planung schon vor meiner Reise gestellt. Er hat jeden Mail, später auch per What's App alle Fragen mitsamt Ratschläge schnell und detailiert beantwortet - ohne irgendwas zu verlangen. Ohne Twins wäre mein anspruchvoller Reiseplan sicherlich nicht einfach zu realisieren.

Mein Teenage Sohn und ich wurde von einem sehr schlechtes Wetter Richtung Songköl erwischt, nichts ging weiter, Geld konnte ich nicht heben, Reiseplan musst umgestellt werden. Mit Hilfe von Damir haben wir dann eine andere Art von Reise erlebt. Wir machten Kontakt zu einheimischer Normade, schliefen in ihrer Jurte und ließen uns von einer natürlichen kirgisischen staunen. Damir gibt immer alles, er erfüllt nicht nur unsere Wümsche, er kennt auch viel. Über ihn lerne ich die Geschichte, Kultur, Gesellschaft und geopolitische Lage besser kennen. Er gibt uns auch viel Tipps für unsere Weiterreise - Essen, Unterkunft, Reiseinformationen ...Kyrgyz Twins Adventures ist einfach top. Empfenlenswert.
