Inappropriate / Inaccurate? Alexey Drozdov
Alexey is a driver (and interpretor) based in Kyrgyzstan, who can take you around the entire country and can arrange activities.
I've put down the rate in dollars as it is a required field - however his standard rate is by the kilometre. It is 35 cents per kilometre. Other costs such as accommodation and food would not be included in this kilometre rate. And when you drive on the roads of Kyrgyzstan which are rough and ruthless on a vehicle - you wonder how he can do it for just that.
Alexey has intimate knowledge with all of Kyrgyzstan, even off-the-beaten-path off-road tracks through the mountains and yet knows every back street of cities like Bishkek and where to eat or see things that you would not see on a regular tour. He has a selection of vehicles to choose from to meet the needs of the trip.
He's a very good translator (his English isn't perfect but is excellent). Alexey grew up in the Soviet era - his parents taught him English as a child.
He is very smart and mechanically inclined. He supported my 3 week mountain bike trip and dealt with all the mechanical problems that my bicycle that I brought from home, presented.
When you travel across Kyrgyzstan with Alexey, you are amazed at how many people one person can know. It's quite possible that Alexey knows every person in the entire country :-)

Alexey would drive ahead so lunch could be prepared for the weary bikers. (photo by Kirsten Koza) Uploaded by Kirsten Koza on May 21, 2012.
