I had a very pleasant one-day Astana tour with Damka. My flight arrived early, and he also arrived early to have early head start. I requested to see the National Museum so we had to change the schedule and he was very flexible. Very easygoing and pleasant, and he made sure I was comfortable first before starting the tour (e.g., breakfast with coffee after early morning flight from Almaty). And he speaks very good English! He even managed to squeeze in a traditional Kazakh lunch. He planned it well enough schedule-wise so we had enough time in most sites.

It was hectic, but all in all, a good experience - enough for me to want to visit Astana again and stay for a few days. Also I will definitely consider other tours with Damka in the future.

We really enjoyed our discovery of Nur Sultan with the good, kind and efficient guidance of Damysbyek. Thank you! We also enjoyed his humor.

The absolute highlight of our weeklong visit to Kazakhstan was with Damysbyek yesterday He took us to The home of a real eagle hunter about two hours outside of Astana. If you are into touristic glitz, this will not be for you. We had an opportunity to talk at length with the eagle hunter, a young man who is caring on this important tradition, and to meet his eagle. Nothing fancy at all but what a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. If what you are looking for is authenticity the Damysbyek is your guide! After visiting the eagle hunter we stopped at a yurt that Damysbyek spotted. Serendipitously the family of the yurt were there, invited us in, invited us to stay for tea (such hospitality and generosity!) and then invited us to a party they were throwing today. Amazing! Chatted but couldn’t stay as we headed to the home of one of Damysbyek’s relatives who cooked a Kazakh feast for us! We were blown away by the love, intimacy and generosity of this family. They welcomed us into their modest home (5 of the cutest kids plus parents) and shared courses of home cooked (over a wood fired stove) Kazakh dishes. We will never forget our day - which was only made poss

Had a wonderful day with Damysbyek! We went on a highlights tour of Astana and what a day it was! Beyond the fascinating attractions of Astana, Damysbyek shared his observations and experiences as a nomadic Kazakh in Mongolia, and contemporary life in Kazakhstan. He also took me to lunch at a restaurant packed with local families eating amazing and delicious food. But this was a restaurant that I would never have entered without Damysbyek who helped navigate the menu, people and terrain. I loved every minute of our time together. So much so that I booked him to introduce me to an authentic eagle hunter & family later this week. Can’t wait! And - can’t recommend Damysbyek high enough. If you visit Astana, book Damysbyek for an unforgettable experience! Five stars!

Damysbyek was an awesome guide and gave us just the right about of quiet time and information. He arranged a one day tour for us and suggested having dinner with a family outside of Astana - which was one of the highlights of our visit. The drive was smooth, the AC perfect for the hot day, and Damysbyek was gave us insights on the history of the Kazkahs, current culture and family life. He made the day special and would be an amazing guide for Astana, the nearby sites and if we ever make our way to Mongolia (his previous home) would seek him or his recommendations out for being a guide there as well.

Excellent English (needed for us), arrived promptly, provided hotel pick up and drop off and pricing was exactly as described /agreed upon. Would highly recommend Damysbyek!

Damysbyek is an excellent tourist guide. He worked according to what my family wanted for our Borovoe trip. Our day was never dull. We were tired but happy at the end of the day. The best part of it all was when we visited a local family and experience Kazakh hospitality and authentic Kazakh food!

We booked Damka for one day to travel from Astana/Nur-sultan to Burabai Lake, but ended up spending two great busy days with Damka in and around Astana/Nur-Sultan. He is fluent in English and very helpful and accommodating. He added places for us to visit on our way back from Lake Burabai. He took us to see real hunting eagles owned by a local in a small village. Then he invited us for dinner at his cousin's home. First time they had had travellers visit them. This was the highlight of our time together. The delicious home food and hospitality of Kazakhs is heartwarming. A beautiful experience!

He is so nice we asked him to take us places the next day too.

The next day we were meant to visit the Mosque in Astana. Instead I had an impromptu meeting with Dimash Kudaibergen's father - Kanat. Damka came earlier to help us. He was fabulous as a translator.

I can't praise Damka enough. If you visit Nur-Sultan, and want a great driver, very comfortable car and a tour guide/ translator rolled into one, then Damka is your man.

Thank you, Damka for an unforgettable lot of experiences in just two days. See you next year for sure.
