Missing Scott and David

Yerlan, this is Scott and Dave and just wanted to thank you so much for everything you did for us. You're ammmazing, and we love you! So, here is Dave. Thank you for everything Yerlan, we had a great time, we couldn't have done this without you. We are so thankful. And Scott can say, he's happy! Bye-bye!!


Yerlan did a great job. He has an intensive knowledge about history and facts about the semey nuclear test site. He is a fun guy. Unfortunatly his 4x4 car broke down on the tour. He solved the problem very good by organizing an alternative driver (who unfortunatly didn't speak english).

Missing Ian & Colin

My Brother and I are keen Dark Tourists and having booked our trip to Khazakstan, really didn't know what to expect. After a really enjoyable stay in Almaty we joined Yerlan in Semey for our private tour. Yerlan was very well read on history and military conflicts, giving us an incredible understanding of the country. He provided local guide help allowing us access to areas often unseen on local maps and guides. We were not worried about our safety and enjoyed the ride in Yerlans 4x4. I hope to see you again sometime Yerlan. Good fortune with yoiur venture . Ian and Colin( United states of Great Britain )( Not to be confused with the European Union ! haha )


One of our most memorable trips. The Semipalatinsk Nuclear Test Site is an experience one will never forget. And if one is looking for such an adventure, Yerlan is definitely the guide to do it with. Huge knowledge on historical facts spiced up with funny, insightful and eye opening anecdotes that make history become alive during the trip. He gives suggestions for interesting photo spots and is eager to organize a full experience of reality for you and that you get what you paid for and even more. Yerlan is a great organizer but also open for coincidental or short-term opportunities and a good connecter to interesting locals you would have never thought to meet before. Thus for any trip that needs professional guidance or special permit in Kazakhstan Yerlan is the one to contact.
