Zhanara is the BEST FRIEND in Almaty that everyone needs! My friend and I did her wonderful food and wine tour that completely exceeded our expectations. If you are a first-timer in Almaty, I highly recommend that you sign up for a tour with Zhanara. Her hospitality and personality will make your stay in Almaty so much brighter. Unfortunately, we only did the food/wine tour, but definitely plan to explore the greater Almaty region with her next time! The food/wine tour was a great introduction to the city. She is a proud local who knows all the great spots and has friends all over town. The entire evening did not feel rushed and just felt like we were old friends.

I had a wonderful and successful visit to Charyn Canyon and the Kolsai Lakes, organised through Zhanara. Everything went perfectly, and Zhanara was very personable and helpful, and was always happy to answer any questions or address any concerns in the build-up to this tour.

Zhanara wasn't available to take me to these areas personally, but she managed to keep everything on track via her colleagues. Thanks in no small part to her (and them), Kazakhstan 2018 was one of my best trips ever, so I can most certainly recommend her services.


What a fantastic tour. The food and the conversation were great. Thanks!


Extraordinary! After quite some initial consultations we agreed on a quite demanding schedule and were indeed not disappointed!

Zhanar not only gives you the tour (hence: car, driver, fuel, accomodation,...) itself, but even more prepares you with all important insights into Kasakhian culture, habits and language.

The tour organized by Zhanar was great. Our 2 guides Madina and Anar who guided us for 3 days 2 nights were especially helpful and friendly.


It is a must do item when you visit Kazakhstan. The big almanty lake tour from Zhanar is really fabulous. The organisation and the planning of this tour is great. My tour guide Uncle Volodya speaks English well, and brings me to many viewpoints to see the lake and take photos. Really an unforgettable day

Our day couldnt be any better with a great company, Zhanar, whom guided us through some of history and nature of Almaty. Zhanar took her time to explain and carefully walked us through as we were travelling with my 72 years old father and toddlers with as young as 16 months old. We enjoyed every moments of the all day tour, and Zhanar's recommended food which she plans to ensure everyone's taste are fulfilled, and to have the best seats and scenery for the tour. Transportation provided was good and the driver is an experience one who knows the hills. Enjoyable day for all of us and we believe Zhanar will make your day a memorable one too just like the one we had. Definitely, Zhanar, a recommended tour guide for you and your family.

My friend and I took a tour with Zhanar upon our arrival in Almaty. We found her to be very informative and interesting. We particularly enjoyed the food and wine tasting elements.

I do enjoy my tour very much, everything is perfect! Zhanar is a very friendly and considerate girl and told me lots of Kazakh culture. The driver, Victor, is very nice and with good driving skills. The host family, the nomad, is really nice and I felt being warmly welcomed. Everything was smooth in the tour! The view is amazing and I saw huge amount of cattles that is hardly seen in cities. This is my first time for horse riding! A special experience in staying in yurt with the local family. I highly recommend this tour if you want to have different experience more than only sightseeing in Almaty!
