Handcrafted, Private Tours to Kyrgyzstan


You want to do things your way. We get it. MIR has been planning custom, private tours from scratch for over three decades, and we understand just how important flexibility is in travel.

Traveling privately on a custom private tour affords a great deal of flexibility – flexibility to immerse yourself in your own exclusive experience, to craft an itinerary around your interests, to go at your own pace, and to travel when it’s right for you.

How does it work? We’ll connect you with one of our Private Tour Designers so that you can share your vision and expectations with us.

We’ll ask you questions to better learn about your interests: Want to spend the night under the stars at over 10,000 feet in an authentic yurt? How about participating in master classes on Kyrgyz cuisine like boorsok and beshbarmak?

We’ll share our extensive experience in the region – and our suggestions. And then we’ll dig into it and custom-craft a private tour itinerary for your review. Give us a call at 800-424-7289 to get started, or click here to be on your way.

Signature Experiences

Below are just a few examples of the signature experiences that MIR can arrange for you in Kyrgyzstan. Let them be a source of inspiration, then get in touch with one of our Private Tour Designers to craft an itinerary that’s uniquely suited to your travel goals, budget, and style.

  • Take a curator-led tour of the Museum of Fine Arts in the capital city of Bishkek, gaining access to treasures seldom seen by the public
  • Visit an esteemed designer’s workshop on the outskirts of Bishkek for a master class in Kyrgyz silk scarf making
  • In a high mountain pasture, attend spirited matches of ulak tartysh and kurosh, games on horseback that have been played for centuries by Kyrgyz shepherds
  • Witness a private demonstration of traditional Kyrgyz hunting techniques, featuring archers on horseback, soaring golden eagles, and long-legged Taigan hunting dogs
