Though I have some experience with travelling/backpacking through Asia (India, Nepal, East-Asia) this year will be the first time I visit a country like Kyrgyzstan and will also be the first time I want to arrange a tour before the trip starts.

I've already contacted I few companies that organizes tours in/around Kyrgyzstan, of which one already mailed me a program with calculated costs (Click to see). Though I have the feeling the costs are a bit high (especially the stuff not included), I actually have no idea what is normal in Kyrgyzstan and like to hear your opinion on this. Also; how flexible are tour operators in Kyrgyzstan to just book a tour after arrival in Bishkek? We are staying for ~18 days.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave these specific reasons:

  • "Questions covering tasks normally performed by travel agents such as constructing travel and tour itineraries (including scheduling and budgeting) are off-topic. They are generally too specific to your personal preference, with many variables and possibilities, and are probably not helpful to others. See also The WANTA debate." – Mark Mayo, Vince, Karlson
  • "Questions on price-shopping for specific goods or services are off-topic as prices and availability change frequently in many locations. See: What is a shopping question?" – Dirty-flow, drat
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Just an FYI, it is possible to explore Kyrgyzstan on your own. I did it on my first time there, and only met one person who went on a tour. Saying that, her tour sounded AMAZING. – Mark Mayo Jun 3 '14 at 8:17
