About Central Asia Guide

About central Asia Guide

Central Asia Guide was initiated with the aim to create The Best Travel and Tour Booking Platform for Central Asia, focusing on good quality photographs and videos together with accurate information to ensure that our clients know what to expect to. The work is never finished as the destinations and sights develop and there are constantly new ones appearing.

We focus on the 5 Stans, including Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. Central Asia Guide’s approach is based on cooperation. We work together with local travel companies, drivers, hotels and guides that provide our customers their services. We work only with the tour operators that offer good quality services and take care of the environment in their activities and ensure the safety of our clients.

Why Choose Central Asia Guide

Self proven information

When we write about a destination, the information is in almost all the cases based on our own experience and quite often from several visits. We want to provide in depth information which is mostly not available. Being frank, we have not visited each and every of the destinations and sights presented on our platform and in these cases we trust the information from our dear local cooperatives. 

Secure payments

In addition to cash payments and bank transfers, we provide and recommend you the possibility to pay via most common credit cards through a secure payment link system in order to maximize your safety. Most credit card companies will also provide your money back if anything unexpected would happen. Credit cards also offer you often a free of charge travel insurance (check your contract!) which will provide you extra safety during your journeys and especially with any problems regarding your luggage.

How Central Asia Guide works?

Central Asia guide does not organize all the phases of your travel experience by itself and in fact very rarely organizes any part of it. We rely mainly on our hand picked local contractors of proven quality. Even though we work together with a third party, we do not add any extra costs to the contractors’ normal prices. How do we then make business? Our local contractors offer us competitive prices because when they work with Central Asia Guide, they do not need to invest in costly advertisement themselves.


Transparency is our key value. We will always let you know who will be taking care of you and how your travel experience will be handled within our network. We are proud of our cooperation network that really make the things happen in all our Central Asian tours!

Central Asia Guide is run through Qide Oy, a company registered in Finland. One of the main reasons to utilize a European company is to make sure that our payments are quick, error free and follow all the international security best practices.


For Central Asia Guide, the customer is always number one. If there is anything that you are unhappy about during your travel experience, we are happy to receive your feedback. Constructive feedback is also how we can develop and to improve our services and processes and also how our contractors can improve. We will often ask for feedback after you have finished your travel experience. Check our reviews page for the feedback from our previous clients. Please do leave us feedback for also through Tripadvisor or by contacting us through email during or after your tour.
