Michel about listing Turkistan 01/06/2019 3 months ago.

First, I would like to tell that visiting Turkistan region of Kazakhstan and its historical gems, it is the continuation and completion of a trip in Timurid Uzbekistan. As for citizens of most Countries no visa is anymore needed on both sides of the border, the combination is more easy than ever. Moreover Shymkent itself is a surprisingly pleasant city to explore, with amazing National Parks even for day trips.

Islam has always lived in that land and knows it more than enough. He is not simply a good driver with a confortable veihicle but foremost a guide who loves his job and who knows how to do that job well, sometimes overcoming himself in order to satisfy the needs of his guests. Islam is trustworthy, honest, serious but with a sense of humor, always on time, well-mannered with a good character that he makes you feel from the first moment as with an old friend.

Without any doubt I recommend him for an unforgettable tour in the civilization and nature of his holy places.

Islam is the most knowledgeable, kind, attentive guide possible. He is truly passionate about his homeland and welcomed us like we were part of his family. I would recommend it to everyone who wants to know the richness of Kazakhstan culture and history while visiting it’s breathtaking wild nature. The trip around Shymkent was the cherry on the top of our visit and we will definitely come back. Рақмет!

Meng about listing Skymkent to Turkestan one day return 1 years ago.

Islam took me on a morning trip from my hotel in Shymkent to Khoja Ahmed Yassawi Mausoleum in Turkestan, as I was short on time. He answered all of my many questions professionally and patiently before our trip. Also learnt many things about Turkestan and South Kazakhstan despite the limited time we had together. I definitely recommend Islam for tours in South Kazakhstan.

Dylan about listing Driver from Taraz to Bishkek 2 years ago.

We did two tours lasting one day with Islam.

The first day we have visited Turkestan. Islam picked us up at 9 am as we arrived from Almaty by night train.

At Turkestan Islam told us a lot about the whole area and we visited several places there. A very interesting day and late in the afternoon we were dropped at our hotel.

The next morning we were picked up at the hotel for a tour to Aksu Canyon. When we arrived at the canyon we first did a nice hike downstairs to the river. The colour of the river is beautiful. After the hike we drove further into the area and made another hike near the canyon, but this one was upstairs the canyon. In the afternoon we had a great homemade lunch with a spectacular view into the canyon. At the and of the day we were dropped at our hotel again.

We stronlgy recommend Islam as a guide for daytrips, he is reliable and knows a lot about the history and the area itself.


Very informative on the cultural sites, provided water and a good lunch. The car was comfortable. Islam was punctual and very friendly.
