It was a smooth 2 night 3 days on a tour around Almaty, good 4wd and guesthouses, skillful driver. A lot of repairs were necessary in one of the guesthouses, cold shower in the morning.. but otherwise a great trip and Madina is surely attentive.


Everything fine good communication

Niels about listing Almaty lake 12th October 1 month ago.

The whole experience was very positive. For Kazakhstan, this trip was incredibly good value for money. Madina and Sergei were a delight and incredibly helpful even providing me contacts and information for other parts of Kazakhstan (outside Almaty region). Only complaint would be that the yurt was not available to sleep in but it was explained why it wasn't available quite clearly and understandably.

Amar about listing Kolsay, Kayindy , Charyn - 2 days 1 month ago.

I really enjoyed the trip to Charyn Canyon, Kayindy Lake and Kolsay Lakes. Our group was nice. The accomodation in Saty was very comfortable and we've got good homemade food. Sergej, our driver was very kind.

Katrin about listing Charyn, Kolsay and Kayindy 2 months ago.

Everything went really well. No misunderstandings about payment, timetable or accommodations. Madina gave us a great service, comunication was fast and clear, she easily adapted to our needs and arranged everything to get a good price. Our driver Nurlan was great, very kind, patient and calm person. Even if he is not a guide, he tried to give us some information about visited places. Accommodations in Bashy and Saty villages were great. Country style, but with home made saturated food, ventilator and clean shower and bedroom. They even adapted to vegetarian needs. Car was comfortable enough even in super hot daytime. Driver Nurlan was really reliable, drives saflty even in hard conditions and doesn't hurried us up in sightseeing places. We strongly recommend this team!

Giedrė about listing 3 days Almaty tour 3 months ago.



The communication with Madina before the trip went well. She even tried to get more travelers to join my trip. At the end I was traveling alone, but she picked me up at the airport and she introduced me to the driver (Dos). Dos was a safe and fun driver and we managed to communicate his English was basic. The Altyn Emel Park is really nice the time you spent there are around 1-2 h per stop the accommodation are descent the families cook nice dinner. The car had some issues but Dos repaired it and we still went to the canyon which was then around sunset which was beautiful. The last day I saw the Lakes Kolsai and Kaindy (picture) there are crystal blue and very cold total different to the Altyn Emel park. the way to Kaindy takes one hour and is really off-road and fun :-) at around 14:30 we drove back to Almaty where Madina took me out for a city tour which was also very interesting. So all in all a great experience!

Our trip was excellent!

+ Driver was super friendly although he did not speak english.

+ Very friendly stuff at accommodation (they even prepared vegetarian option for us).

- No bathroom at our accommodation

- Quite expensive, but everything was included (entrance, food, water, accommodation,...)

Our 3 days tour of Altyn Emel:Aktau Katutau, Singing Dune, Charyn, Kolsay, Kaindy went well and was well organised. Madina was easy to contact, the price was very reasonable and she helped join us with two other travelers which made it even cheaper. The driver we had was very experienced and drove well. Our tour guide was friendly and proficient enough in English but she was a bit inexperienced (it was only her second trip). The tour would have been even better if she was more knowledgeable about the places we were going and she was a bit more attentive to our needs (needing towels at guesthouses, and stopping at shops before stopping for the night). I'm sure she will get better at this with more experience. We would have also liked to have been offered some other options, like accommodation at the bottom of Charyn Canyon, which might have costed more but would have been an amazing place to stay. Overall, we had a nice trip and I would recommend Madina's services.
