Sona was our guide from GS. She was very responsive and diligent in following through with communications. She sent reminders to make sure we have the necessary documents with us upon entering Turkmenistan. She was very accommodating, always on her toes tomake sure we're ok, and our needs were met. She made it smooth for us to go through the border (which could be tricky), had a good driver, yurt accommodations adn itinerary all well-organized. We won't have been able to travel on our own as smoothly without her help. She spoke fluent English and certainly knew her way around. She was very informative about current affairs and history and was cool to hang out with. Thank you Sona! I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to visit Turkmenistan!
