An incredible experience I will never forget!

I made a very last-minute booking on the off-chance Yerlan would be free and I am so lucky he was.

Our two-day trip to Burabay was amazing, all thanks to Yerlan's guidance. He knew so much about the history and stories behind each place we visited and was more than happy to answer my many questions about Kazakh culture.

The drive was safe, comfortable, and well-worth the time to see such fantastic landscapes. He showed off the wares in the local market, and shared them with me. They were absolutely delicious! He even helped me with checking into my hotel near the park.

We hiked around the lakes through beautiful forests and even up to the highest peak. Climbing the mountains was sometimes difficult but he was always there to help and happy to take a rest whenever I needed it.

Swimming in the lakes was so refreshing after the hike and he even helped me find my goggles when I lost them.

I would definitely take another tour with him in the future! As a guide he is kind, thoughtful, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the places he visits. He has my highest recommendation :)

Yerlan is wonderful. I had to organise a trip to Astana for 9 people and he helped me where ever he could. Despite all my questions and a certain mistrust from my side, he was always honest and transparent. He responded at any time to any question. When we had the tour with him, it continued positive. Thanks to his knowledge, he was able to tailor an individual tour according our preferences and interests. Additionally, he was able to answer all questions we had. He is friendly, has a positive and motivated attitude and is always smiling.

Thanks to Yerlan, our time in Astana was very convenient and we got a deeper insight about the life in this crazy city.

I am incredibly thankful for everything he made for me and my group.

Yerlan is an excellent guide. I reached out to him months before my trip and he helped tiredlessly me with the booking of hotel, arranging transfers, and gave me advice on my other days in Kazakhstan, even though i was not traveling with him on those days. He also provided help after the conclusion of the tour, as he helped me to get my jacket left behind in Kurchatov back. Yerlan also provided excellent guiding service in Semipalatinsk and have vast knowledge of Kazakhstan, politically or culturally. I highly recommend him.

Yerlan was a great guide! He took us on a custom-made tour and was ever so patient, kind and helpful. He is also very knowledgeable, educated and speaks English perfectly. Could not have chosen a better guide. Thanks a lot!!

It was great spending time with you and meeting your family. Thank you so much for your warm hospitality and sensitive translation during a very difficult time. Thank you also for making a special trip up to Astana to deliver the gifts from Aigul as well as the flash drive. Best wishes and please come visit us if you should ever come to Utah.


Everything went very well with Yerlan. He made us a very nice trip in Astana and was always giving us lots of information about history of Astana and Kazakhstan. We had a very nice time with Yerlan and will warmly recommend him.

Marylise about listing ASTANA with Aurelien & Juliette 5 months ago.

Yerlan is an absolute gem of a driver / guide to find, he is fun, passionate, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, extremely helpful, caring, polite and accommodating.

Yerlan was with us for 4 days, but we also used his service for our airport transfers. He was always on time to collect us from our hotel, and he was there waiting for us when our flight landed.

What separate Yerlan from other guides or drivers I’ve used on my holiday’s, is that Yerlan makes small touches that make all the difference, not only to your holiday but to your relationship with him, Yerlan was texting me for about 2 weeks before hand, just to give us advice from dress wear to wishing us a safe journey. The attention to detail this man puts into his trips is brilliant and you should not think twice or hesitate about booking his services, my holiday to Kazakhstan was amazing and this is because Yerlan made sure we had a great time, when I come back to Kazakhstan I’ll 100% be meeting him again.

You’ll leave Kazakhstan with a new friend!

Alan about listing Alan Whiteman & Paul Fitzptrick booking 6 months ago.

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!
