We went to the Charyn canyon and had a great time! Our guide walked with us along the canyon and told interesting sometimes funny stories (he was very well informed) about the place. At the end of the canyon we rested at a little river before heading back. I definitely recommend visiting this beautiful place because the sight was just breathtaking :) (But maybe not during hot months like July.) At the end we ate delicious food at a local restaurant and were driven back to our hotel. So a...


We had a wonderful trip to the Almaty Lake. Our guide was very attentive, answered all our questions and was always making an effort :) On the lake we had a couple of hours time which gave us the opportunity to take photos, walk around and enjoy the overall view ( by the way the Almaty Lake is definitely worth visiting for beautiful pictures and the freshest air I have ever breathed). After that we spontaneously stopped at some yurtas where we ate dinner (tasty food and more interesting p...


We had dinner with a lovely young couple :) The food was delicious and the couple was very talkative (they answered all our questions about the everyday life in Kazakhstan). All in all they were great hosts, always endeavored around our well-being (for example by always keeping our plates full :D ). A wonderful experience!

His personal experience around the world, made us feel very c...

Nurai was great. She is a young, caring, talkative, smart girl. She told us a lot about the nature and history and i really enjoyed the trip. Also the driver was funny and the homestay was really cozy and we had a good time. Thank you Nurai


Amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better guide than Andrey. When choosing a guide over the internet you are always a little nervous how it will turn out but we had nothing to worry about. Andrey was responsible, reliable, trustworthy, punctual and caring and built an amazing 4 day trip which catered exactly to what we had asked for.

Everything went smoothly. The family of gesthouse was nice and prepared yummy local dishes. Also, the views of lakes were impressive. Thanks a lot. I hope it can have enough time to go Kolsai Lake 2 and 3 in the trip.

Great service and detailed information in advance!


Great trip to go!


Planning phase: Maxim was very detailed in the breakdowns of the itinerary and cost, which was helpful for new tourists to Central Asia Trip: He’s a safe driver and an experienced in landscaping guide. He’s a photography fanatic (in a good way)! We explored untouched sceneries of Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. Overall: If you’re looking for exciting, unique outdoor spots, a detailed planner and most importantly, someone who goes above and beyond... Maxim is your guy!
