Our second trip with Darkhan was as good as the first one. Everything was perfectly organized. Darkhan picked us up at 7am. On our way we had some delicious samsas with chicken which Darkhan has bought for us. The canyon itself was really impressive and one of the most stunning places we have ever been to. Darkhan told us many interesting things about the place and its history.

We really enjoyed our trip and are looking forward to the next one :-)

I asked him for an airport pickup.

Thanks to his prompt responses, there was no miscommunication before and after my reservation.

I could smoothly and safely reached at my place with his car.

We booked a tour to Big Almaty Lake on Saturday. It was perfect organized, altough we booked only the night before. Darkhan also waited for us about 20 minutes, because we wanted to buy some food for the trip. During the whole trip he was explaining and telling us interesting stories and background about Almaty and the Big Almaty Lake. He already booked our second tour with him to Charyn Canyon tomorrow. We can highly recommend Darkhan! :-)

My family took a day tour to Charyn Canyon. A daytrip with Darkhan is very comfortable and also exciting experience.

Perfect weather, perfect course and perfect guide.

Because of his team - I mean Darkhan and mr. Driver - my family and me more learn about beautiful Kazakhstan's Nature.

I would highly recommend taking a tour with Darkhan's team. We hope to see them again in the future.

* ps : Do not miss a chance to eat his recommened Samsa. It is really good - like a Italian Calzone!

Although a very kind person. Darkhan was unable to make the tour time due to an issue with the car. Although I’m bummed about not being able to go to those aces with this tour, I would still recommend Darkhan even though it was a slip up that occurred with my tour


My father and I had a great time with Darkhan and Mr. lovely driver throughout the whole trip. He is a friendly, gentle and passionate tour guide who tried his best to show us the most beautiful sides of different attractions of Kazakhstan. We do thank you them for their hard work and patience on meeting our requests. We tried to experience the local life of Almaty citizens about how they spend their leisure time during winter season. And we did exchanged lots of ideas on different aspects. It is our honour to meet both gentlemen during our stay in Almaty and grateful to have them as our new Kazakh friends. We wish we may meet again some days after. Highly recommended Darkhan as your tour guide in future!

My husband and I took a day tour to Charyn canyon. Everything went to plan and we had a very nice time. Darkhan is a great guide and very knowledgable about the area. He speaks excellent English and was friendly and professional. We really enjoyed the tour it is an amazing place and well worth a visit. We set off at 7.30 am and arrived back at our hotel at 5pm. It was great value for the price we paid.

I would highly recommend taking a tour with Darkhan and his driver. We hope to do so again in the future.

Darkhan has reacted immediately to our booking and we arranged the organizational parts of the trip right away.

During the whole trip, we had interesting and funny talks about us, Almaty and the sights we were visiting. Darkhan and his driver were very nice, hospitable and authentic.

Within a day, we have seen spectacular treasures of Almaty.

Thank you a lot for the amazing and mesmerizing trip!!


We a had an excellent trip to BAO (Big Almaty Lake) with Darkhan. He is a very friendly guy and fluent in English. He told us a lot about the kazakh culture and as we had some time left, he gave us an introduction into kazakh cuisine in Almaty.
