Darkhan was a very nice, polite and calm person. Even if the weather was a bit foggy when we visited the big Almaty lake, it was an interesting and beautiful trip. We could recommend Darkhan as guide! The driver was drivning a bit aggressive and there were no security belts in the back seat. The windows were tinted wich made it more diffucult to see the beautiful nature from the car. But all in all we were satisfied and we would be happy to go for more trips with Darkhan in the future.

Even I was not able to make it to the trip due to last minute change on my flights, however Darkhan did perfect job, as we were always in good communication, preparing the trip, making plans. I do hope to be on the trip back in September and will ask Darkhan to be my guide. 5 *****

I booked with Darkhan on short notice but he quickly confirmed. Everything went smoothly, we were picked up and dropped off on time. The tour was great and Darkhan was very accommodating.

Gustaf about listing Charyn Canyon one day trip 1 month ago.

Darkhan is a good guide. He ensured everything went smoothly, and was prompt in answering my queries. He was also punctual, accommodating to our requests (e.g. bring me to change money, drop me off at a different location than pick up point), able to provide suggestions on souvenirs to buy, and able to help us on our last minute request for airport transfer service. Overall, a pleasant experience going on the tour with Darkhan.

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.

Miwa about listing Almaty Airport Transfer / Pick-Up 4 months ago.

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!
