Hi, I am Dildabek! Glad to meet you! Welcome to our beautiful country - Kazakhstan. 

I am member of a network of independent tour guides, and CBT (community based tourism) offers in South Kazakhstan. I am native Kazakh and proud of my Homeland and its great History. I would like to give to the guests an in-depth knowledge of our national culture and its spirituality; ancient and recent.  I would like to bring, not only the local point-of-view to the discussion, but also give life to facts, legends and stories that have come down through the ages. 

Together with my family I am actively exploring my country. I believe that knowledge of history and love to nature help us to better understand ourselves and others. Therefore, I am always ready to welcome new guests.  

We are all children of one Mother - Earth. Expand your consciousness!  The past is connected to today! 

My skills, interests, and hobbies: I have 25 years of experience in the field of international relations. I have studied history of Kazakhstan, national culture and literature. Many years engaged in historical researches and ethnography of Turkic and Kazakh people. Also I like Kazakh national verbal storytelling and folklore, especially folk traditions and customs. Knowledge of world history allows me to draw historical parallels and interesting informative talks about historical facts and events. My long-time passion for Oriental philosophy and poetry (Omar Khayyam, H.Ahmed Yassavi, Jami, Navoi, Ferdowsi, Abai) also helps me in everyday work as guide. I also enjoy mountain hiking and truly love the mountains. I am actively hiking and leading my guests into the mountains of Trans-Ili and Talass Alatau of Western Tien Shan, combining it with my current job as a guide. Moreover, I have many years of car driving experience in Almaty, Almaty region and South Kazakhstan. Working as personal guide, I use my personal car. I am trying constantly to find new and interesting places and tours not only in Kazakhstan, but also throughout Central Asia.

Hi, my name is Martin from Prague from Czech republic and I would like to give a feedback to Dildabek. Shortly - Dildabek is a great quide. Every deal with him is clear, quick and sure. He is also very adjustive - and if you have any reason to make some change, he has no problem with it. His perfect car is fine to explore the steps and deserts in Kazachstans. I spend with him two days and my brain was a really full of perfect historical and religious information. I´m historian the same and it was a very big suprise for me that I found in Kazachstan the same man how Dildabek. His knowleadges about his history, nations and culture are enormous. Don´t be worry to ask him for everything - he helps you everytime. He can speak great russia and english. My recommend is clear - 4 stars! :))


Re chat about other services. Farm could offer child care while adults had break hiking or horse riding. Also shymkent as rest point on journey east or west and gateway to Tashkent etc. Goodluck


Kazakhstan is a very interesting country and Dildabek has a good understanding of its history. I really enjoyed the walk in the mountains.


The highlight during our journey through Kazakhstan! Dildabek is a very inspiriring person with a great knowledge about Kazakh culture and history. We have not just learned about Kazakhstan but also our life. Thank you Dildabek!

It was a great trip. We discovered some amazing hidden places and many aspects of culture of Kazakhstan. With his high knowledge, Dildabek really highlighted the beauty of the place.


Everything perfect!

Technical - Punctual at the appointment and high quality of vehicle. Good and attentive driving over long distances.

Cultural - Dildabek is extremely knowledgeable about the places we visited - more important, he is passionate about the history and culture of Kazakkhstan, and he loves to share fascinating stories and insights - the history, the steppe, the people, the mountain, the music the culture and lifestyle - historic and contemporary.

Personal - Flexibe in adapting the tour to our needs

Places of interest - Turkistan is truly majestic, rivalling the monuments in Samarkand but without the tourist backdrop (in Turkistan there are many pilgrims and few tourists). Definitely worth the journey.

Terry about listing one day visit to Turkestan from Shymkent 9 months ago.

Dildabek is a very fascinating man and a great tour guide. He took me from my hotel in Shymkent to Taraz and still managed to show me Aisha bibi and a few of the sites of ancient Taraz despite our short time frame. He is very knowledgeable about Kazakhstan and I learnt a lot along the way. Due to the brief shutting of the border between Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan I was unable to meet my next guide as he could not leave Kyrgyzstan, so Dildabek worked hard with my hotel to arrange alternate transport for me to the border, where I would meet my Kyrgyzstan guide. I appreciate the effort he made so I could make it to my next destination on time. I can definitely recommend Dildabek for your South Kazakhstan tours.


What an extraordinary time I had with Dildabek!! A man of great wisdom, knowledge and passion for his home country and people. I have seen much, experienced and learnt much and have much to think about!! I was not just a tour but an education and a journey within myself. Thank you again


Dildabek knows and loves sharing his knowledge on Kazakhstan, from which you can get very deeply into this vast country. His two-day tour on the ancient cities (Turkistan, Sauran, Otrar) is totally worth the price.



Dildabek is a very intelligent, knowledgeable, friendly and professional guide. We had a fun and interesting day trip with him and I would highly recommend his services.
