We really enjoyed Iskanderkul area/Panj chashma, as well as the scenic drives in Shakhristan. Communication skills, knowledge of the area, sense of service, organization skills of the tour guide we would rate excellent, as the driver’s service as well. The guide had good knowledge about the history. We sometimes felt that our own lack of knowledge stopped us from understanding the fully the history. So maybe it’ll be helpful to provide a more basic overview of history for us to understand what’s happening better. Overall, it was great fun talking with the guide.
We enjoyed the nature parts the most (both when we stopped, and when we drove through some great places). Looking back we wish we had communicated about the itinerary a little better with Orom Travel because we would’ve liked to see more nature stuff and spend less time in cities. We could have been convinced to skip one of the three cities we visited in favor of one more hike. I would recommend Orom to have this communication with people in the future because as tourists we don’t have the local knowledge to know where we can hike/see cities etc. But overall the tour was great, and we really enjoyed our time in Tajikistan.
We think that the tour was good value for money, and we would recommend Orom Travel to your friends.
