This one day trip was jam packed with all the highlights you’d want to see on a trip to Kyrgyzstan. Starting with a tour of Burana Tower and all the history followed by sightseeing and a lunch stop with traditional dishes on the way to Issyk Kul Lake, ending with a tour of the open air museum, you definitely get your money’s worth out of this trip!
The tour was personalized to suit my experience with the extremely knowledgeable guide (Ash!) answering every silly question about “where did the people sleep in the watch tower 10 centuries ago?” or “are there fish in this lake?” whilst also dropping major knowledge about the country and geography and customs of Kyrgyzstan.
You don’t want to miss this tour!

You will be surely impressed, as I was if you go for a day visit of Issyk Kul. You will see not just the bluemarine water of one of the biggest and highest lakes of the world /No.2 and in 1700 m/, where you could have similarly as I had unforgattable swimming moments with a scenery of snow capped high mountains, but on the way you will see also the historical Burana tower with the surranded "silk road cemetery".
Moreover, you will stop at the mystical memorial place of the 5 biggest religions and will be refreshed by a local lunch included in the trip. I was especially lucky, as my guide was the boss of Ventura, Ash, who made a quite long driving short by interesting stories, information at a very high level English, so the day was unique, cannot be forgotten !

First: The itineraries was so cool, worth it and properly organized package by our tour guide. The places were so amazing and worth to visit. All of it was amazing... In just a day, we have experienced the highlights of Kyrgyzstan. It was superb and I really loved it. If you have a short visit in Kyrgyzstan, I would recommend to book a package tour from Ventura travels, you will save a lot of time and you don't need to do anything. You will just relax and enjoy the tour and the places. It was indeed a memorable experience.

Second: Ventura Tours Kyrgyzstan was a great choice, you won't regret it. They were my first choice and they didn't disappoint me.

Mr. Ash is an amazing person, we felt like travelling with friends. He and our driver was so comfortable to be with. We really enjoyed their company. There was no time wasted. I just hope that there were more days to spend with them in Kyrgyzstan. If we have more time, I will definitely book another package with them as they have a lot of choices. And instead me giving him an appreciation gift, he gave me a gift and I was so happy and thankful. If he didn't give me, I will not have that souvenir from Kyrgyzstan. I will never forget Ash.

This is an excellent option and opportunity to visit Kyrgyzstan’s undeniable pearl, Issyk Kul from Bishkek if you are short on time. The trip packs a lot of punch in a single day. The 11th century (approx.) Burana Tower is doused in intrigue and history. I visited it on a cold and snowy day and it looked absolutely stunning. I assume it would be just as splendid in summer. Ruh-Ordo, a cultural center, is another fascinating stop right at the edge of Issyk Kul. An ideal place to reflect and ponder. And then there is the idyllic boat ride on Lake Issyk itself which is the highlight of the tour.

Ash, the founder of the company , and luckily my guide on the day, is a diligent and a throughly efficient planner. He tends to his clients and their needs with utmost care. Ash is quite driven by quality of service and therefore provides a superior experience to travelers. A fiercely lively person, he is a scholar of a wide range of subjects and thus makes for an engaging and enthralling conversationalist for such a long day trip. All in all, a day extremely well spent.

Had a wonderful day during this private tour to Burana and Issyk-Kul. Ash is a great guide and a wonderful companion, so even if you’re a solo traveler you won’t get bored. The sights were absolutely breathtaking and the flexibility of the private tour really allowed me to take the time to appreciate the beauty of the surroundings. The boat ride was appropriately cold for December, but the hot drinks and the amazing sunset will make even the most bitter cold go away. It is a long tour - so get ready for that, but Ash’s company and the driver’s expert skills will make it fly by in no time. Highly recommended if you’re in Bishkek and have just one day to spare to see the nature of Kyrgyzstan.

After the city tour with Ash the day before, I was really looking forward to our outing into the countryside, and it didn’t disappoint. Burana Tower was a good site to visit, with the tower itself, museum and relics traders left whilst travelling the Silk Road. Next we stopped at a cafe for some lunch, to try some local dishes, and they were yum! Post lunch, we made our way to the lake, where we boarded a boat that took us out into the lake for about half an hour. It was peaceful taking in the surrounding snow capped mountains or lake, although, if you’re brave, you can take a dip in the lake.

After the boat trip, we made our way to an open air cultural centre. The grounds of the cultural centre housed a small dedication to all five religions, sculptures of prominent people in history and other interesting pieces.

I highly recommend Ash and his team at Ventura Tours Kyrgyzstan.

It has been a great day trip in the nature, the natural and historical treasures of Kyrgyzstan, in the everyday life of its people. The excursion was well organised, with professionalism in the communication and knowledge, friendly and polite guide and driver. Fair price.

This is a lot for one day (if you have more time I recommend one of the longer tours), but it was a great experience. The tour guide, Boobek, is full of energy and will make sure you get a chance to see everything. The company is great to work with too and will tailor the tours based on what you're looking for.

It was nice to be able to take a boat ride on the lake. Really great experience which I highly recommend. It was around 19 degrees but the wind was blowing so it felt colder, but the boat offers blankets. The Burana Tower was also a nice addition to the tour. And the lunch was very tasty with traditional dining experience.
