Andrey, provide a great two-day tour. We were just two people and Andrey gave us every opportunity to stop look around and take photos whenever we wanted. He picked us up from our hotel and we headed out to the Canyon and lakes. He was very professional and went over and above during the tour. He walked with us an pointed out parts of the Canyon on the ridgeline we might have walked by on our own. His car is perfect for going off-road. In fact, I think he selected off-road routes on purpose because this is more interesting than following a coach to a destination. We loved having morning coffee by Kolsai Lake. The homestay was simple but worked well. I might add that on the first day, before meeting Andrey I wasn't feeling too well. Andrey was great and looked after me, arranged simple food at the homestay etc. In fact, it is now a month from the trip and I'm only now feeling well again. At the end of the tour, Andrey dropped us back in front of our hotel. If I ever return to Kazakhstan and I need a guide I would contact Andrey.

I enjoyed the trip with Andrey very much. He is a very knowledgeable and trustworthy guide. On top of that he is a very good driver, so you are in good hands even when the roads get challenging (or if there aren't any roads at all). Highly recommended.

Mitzi

Amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better guide than Andrey. When choosing a guide over the internet you are always a little nervous how it will turn out but we had nothing to worry about. Andrey was responsible, reliable, trustworthy, punctual and caring and built an amazing 4 day trip which catered exactly to what we had asked for. He planned every detail carefully and we enjoyed an extremely varied and exciting adventure off the beaten track and got to see a liitle bit of the 'real kazakhstan'.

If you are looking for a guide around Almaty to take you on an adventure into nature, Andrey is definitely your guy.

I contacted Andrey several months in advance to customize two of his tours into a two day trip. We had no problems communicating and he was also prompt in replying.

We did Charyn Canyon and Issyk Lake over two days. Andrey suggested we go biking which made it more interesting than the standard itinerary of other guides. I thought he meant one day but he had arranged bikes for both days. Depending on experience level some of the uphill in rough terrain can be a challenge so I made some suggestions.

With my interest in churches he also made some detours to local Orthodox churches off the beaten path that only locals would know about. We also tried various local cuisine on the long drives.

Andrey was very accommodating both before and during the trip and make extra effort organizing and transporting the bikes. Despite doing this tour many times he seemed to be enjoying himself as well.

I would be comfortable recommending Andrey to fellow travellers.

This was an amazing trip! Andrey took me, my wife, and our two friends (plus their five-year old kid) up to big Almaty lake for the standard tour. He was a super tour guide, a great driver, and is incredibly friendly. He gave us a number of superb views of the lake, led us on a couple short hikes, made us some tea and coffee, and gave us plenty of time to just do our own thing. His English is great, and he’s very knowledgeable about the lake and the history of Almaty in general. We all had a great time getting to know him a bit, and will definitely be contacting him the next time were in Almaty. I highly recommend him to anyone considering a trip up to big Almaty lake.

We had a wonderful tour with Andrey. We enjoyed the beauty of Aktau and Katutau Mountains on the first day. The second day we visited the Singing Dunes, the mosque in Zharkent and drove already to the canyons for overnight there to have more time in the canyons on day 3. That day 3 we visited several canyons. End of the day we ended in Saty. On day 4 we did the hike from the first Kolsai Lake to the second. That day we slept again in Saty (at a very kind family and it was the best stay of this tour). Day 5 we visited Kaindy Lake and on our way back to Almaty a last stop at Black Canyon.

We can really recommend Andrey for your tour. He arrange more than enough water for the whole trip, makes one or two lunches every day and we really liked his humour. Andrey was not only our guide, but became also our friend.

We had a beautiful day with seeing Big Almaty Lake, the hike to Big Almaty Peak and the Hunting Bird Show. Also great was the lunch Andrey prepared with a stunning view on the Big Almaty Lake and it was about 100 or 200 meters from a spot where tourists made their pictures of the lake, but Andrey knew a better spot with a better view and less tourists. Overall we had a great day. Only recommendation is to start the full package tour earlier than 9:30 to have more time for the hike and more time to enjoy the view on the summit. I can really recommend Andrey as your guide!

The tour was fantastically organised, the guide was fantastic, with very high-quality equipment, great knowledge of the area, great English, and great stories to tell :). The places we have seen really blew us away, from multi-coloured mountains to endless steppe deserts to breathtaking canyons where you can quietly set up your tent. Would highly recommend to anyone!
