Hello dear friends! Welcome to the land of turquoise lakes and mountains of Tajikistan! My name is Ardasher! I was born on February 17, 1995 in one of the most beautiful villages in Ruknobod, which is located in the Zarafshon Valley, in the city of Panjakent. I graduated from the National University of Tajikistan, and now I live and work in Dushanbe. I have worked as a tour guide and provider since 2013 throughout Tajikistan. My work experience began as a guide-interpreter in some travel companies. The reasons for choosing this profession grew in my heart, when I used to study at school. Also, my birthplace Ruknobod is in a place where a lot of foreign tourists visit, I used to have a shop in the center of the village and when tourists asked me about recommendations, I would happily show them, inform and help them. The other reason for choosing this activity is my father, he is an English teacher and during the summer holidays he used to work as an interpreter for travel companies. He invited a lot of foreign tourists to our house, so he used to try to speak English with them. I like to meet new people of new cultures, traditions and different places of interest and historical importance. I also like to know more and more about the geography of all the countries in the world, especially about the geography of my country, Tajikistan. I speak Tajik (my mother tongue), English and Russian. My goal is to provide and organize a unique and best quality service for everyone.
2 Tours of Ardasher
Ardasher had a great agenda ready for us when we met. We feel like we saw every important sight in Dushanbe and learned so much about Tajikistan culture. Ardasher wasn't in any rush, so our walks between sites were leisurely and allowed for good conversation on a wide range of topics. We ended our tour at the marketplace and had meat pies and tea together. You will enjoy this pleasant young man's company so choose his tour if you can. Note: There was a lot of walking but you can choose to take inexpensive taxis between some sites if you like.
I wished to see local places so we went to a local restaurant to have breakfast, to the market and to some parks while sightseeing some monuments and buildings
Ardasher is a great tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about the city and Tajik culture. The tour was almost the entire day walking around Dushanbe but I really enjoyed it. Ardasher makes me the tour quite fun and explains everything throughouly. Definitely book a tour with him if you visit this interesting city!
An excellent 4 hours walk through the main highlights of the city including lots of background information. Highlight of the tour was the inside visit of the Tea Room building. Tour is highly recommended 😀
I so enjoyed my day with Ardasher! He took me everywhere in the city. Very flexible, kind, and informative. I’m looking forward to scheduling a day trip excursion with him on my next trip to Dushanbe!
