What Others Say About This Tour

"But for a more in-depth exploration, a local guide joined me to point out what he loves most about his city. Turns out, there’s quite a lot from the ancient bazaar to peaceful parks and my favorite, Soviet-era statues and monuments. I really enjoyed spending time in Osh, and by the end of the visit found myself sad to leave."

"Perfect way to get a first introduction to Osh and visit the most important spots."

Stephanie Kropf


"I enjoyed all the cool facts about the history and the stories about the drawings on the walls."
