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.

I went to Big Almaty Lake with Darkhan and his driver friend. (sorry i forgot his name)

The view was stunning and Darkhan showed me the best place to have a picnic. We had picnic there and took some selfies together, he also explained me a lot of stuffs about the lake and almaty city.

We had little trouble on our way to the lake but it was indeed interesting. Hope I can join another tour of him next year.

Everything went smootly, thanks a lot! We had a 1 day trip with Darkhan to the Charyn Canyons. The tour was perfectly organized. Darkhan is very sociable, personable, and helpful. We also appreciated his flexibility to adapt to our wishes on the spot. All in all, a very positive experience and definitely recommendable!

Maximilian about listing Charyn Canyon one day trip 5 months ago.

Darkhan was a fantastic host for my eexperience of Big Lake. He was very helpful beforehand with any questions I had, and was even able to help me arrange a taxi from the airport. Great price compared to all the big tour groups, and much more of a personal experience! He was great to talk to during the trip, and explain culture and history. We had a nice local meal afterwards by the river which was great. The Big Lake is an amazing place and I am very happy to have found Darkhan on the internet. thanks!

The tour was well designed and Darkhan is an extremely friendly, conversational and knowledgeable guide. Although the Charyn Valley and Big Lake Almaty were amazing, the highlight of the tour was dinner at his home with his lovely family. His mother is an amazing cook. My only suggestion to improve to tour is to consider bring snacks as after a 6am depart to Charyn Valley, we didn't return to Almaty until nearly 3:30 pm for lunch. Otherwise, the tour was great. Thanks Darkhan and my best to your family!

After all the arrangements done, Darkhan put together a trip that was perfect for the time I had in Almaty. It was demanding but we covered Charon Canyon, Big Almaty lake and other attractions in one day. He knows the city and the areas we visited very well which made the trip more enjoyable. Definitely a great experience while in Almaty!
