I have booked many city tours around the world and the recent tour I took with Ventura Tours was one of the best. I had read up on Bishkek before arriving but still didn’t really know what to expect and my tour gave me exactly what I was hoping for: a window into the local culture, people, food, as well as stunning monuments and buildings. I think what made it so enjoyable and stand out from other tours I have taken in the past elsewhere was that although we visited all of the must see sights, as well as the bazaar, everything was explained and presented through the context of local culture and history as it applies to and affected the growth and development of the fascinating and underreported on Kyrgyzstani culture. I absolutely loved my experience with Ventura tours and will come back to use them to see more of the country. Highly recommended.
