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.
