Last seen 2 hours ago

Hi! My name is Saken. I am 34 yo from Kazakhstan. Almaty is my hometown. I know everything about my city - people, cool spots, places to eat and drink. This is not my main job. But I can do it better than any professional guide, because I do it with passion and I know Kazakh history very well. It's my initiative to tourist attraction and making easier way to understand our Nomad culture. 20% of monthly profit donated to local people who works in Animal rescue service and NGO who is providing free food for elders.

Each tour can be changed to suit your needs. Just text me.

Are you interested in truly engaging with a country’s culture, or just showing others that you have been somewhere new?

I will show you my Almaty and region. It's not another average tour

I organize tours (trekking, photography, wild, nature and adventure)

Saken is a great guide and driver. He was always very punctual, and catered to all our needs. We bonded well with Saken, and he was really good company to have on our trip! We learnt so much about the Kazakh culture. We would highly recommend Saken!

Saken is a really helpful and nice guy. He and his wife picked us up at the airport and drove us to the big almaty lake. Afterwards we had a really nice lunch in a local restaurant with traditional food. At the end we walked around through the local market and the city center of Almaty.

Totally worth it :)


Couldn’t have asked for a better guide. Went to all of the places I wanted to and more. Also had lots of insight about all of the sites.

Jonathan about listing Almaty Tour 15 days ago.

We had 18-hour layover Almaty.We decided to book 1 day tour-Big Almaty Lake,Medeo ice rink and Almaty city.Saken is knowledgeable about the history behind every site we went and has a great sense of humor.We had lunch at local restaurant and lots of of stories about Kazakhstan and Kazakh families.We also went to local market-Green Bazaar for food tasting and took a walk in the Park of 28 Panfilov Guardsmen to explore Russian Orthodox Church And World War 2 Memorial.We would highlyrecommend Saken.


Unser Ausflug zum Altyn-Emel Nationalpark war eine sehr spontane Aktion. Am Sonntag Abend bei Indy-Tours gesucht und gebucht und Montag morgen um 7.00 Uhr gestartet.

Per Email konnte ich mit Saken alle Fragen und Wünsche unkompliziert im Vorfeld klären.

Pünktlich zur verabredeten Zeit holten uns Saken und ein Fahrer im Hotel ab.

Die Fahrt von Almaty zum Altyn-Emel dauert recht lange, aber wir legten genügend Pausen ein, aßen ein sehr leckeres Mittagessen und Saken überbrückte die Zeit mit interessanten Informationen rund um das Leben in Kasachstan. Im Altyn Emel Park führte Saken uns an alle Orte und war ein hervorragender Guide, der viele Infos und Geschichten zu den besuchten Orten hatte. Dieser Tag war für uns ein tolles Erlebnis, wir haben uns bei Saken sehr gut aufgehoben gefühlt und können ihn uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.

Danke noch mal für alles und viele Grüße aus Soest in Deutschland

Sonja about listing Altyn Emel 22.07.2019 Jabczinski 19 days ago.

We had a great trip to Lake Almaty witn visits to see Falcons, horses and camels at a country club on the way back. The next day Saken also kindly showed us around parts of the city including the green bazaar where we tried some Kazak delicacies. He was a fantastic guide and went out of his way to make sure we had a great stay in Almaty. Thanks again - would definitely recommend!
