    2.0 - Rather poor

    Overall our trip was a wonderful experience but there are definitely things that could have been alot better - especially considering the cost of the trip! Our tour of Bishkek was perfect. The guide was friendly and the car was clean and air conditioned. The following day, however, we were picked up in an old rundown van that did not have air conditioning which was tough in the 100 degree heat. Our guide from this point on wasn't friendly or helpful. His driving was terrifying and we thought we were going to die on numerous occassions. Our guide on the rare occasions that he actually talked to us, often spoke using really offensive expletives and talked to us in a condescending and negative manner. All except one of the tent camps were filthy. There had been a lot of rain so it was pure mud which is not the fault of Ak-Sai, but they did absolutely nothing to remedy the situation. We were often sinking in ankle deep mud. The mats that we slept on were barely 1/2 inch thick and the ground was rocky and very sloped. Everything was cold and damp. The food was okay but both my daughter and I got extremely ill which made me believe that food handling efforts and precautions were not taken.
