She did excellant job,giving us glimpse into khazakstan culture,food and history,and was very reasonable priced,as she provided us with numerous food choices as well,and insight into almaty in general


Zhanar is amazing! Communication (fluent english!) is superb. Due to weather we had to make some changes, but still the tour was for sure a once-in-a-lifetime experience! We would book again within a heartbeat!

Thanks a lot!!!!!

patamavadee about listing Almaty one day trip/ Pae 2 months ago.

I recently traveled to Almaty with a group of 25 other Hong Kong expats for a ski trip during a week-long holiday. We decided that we wanted to spend a day touring Almaty and I found Zhanar via Indy Guide. Her response to my request for a guide was prompt and her English was very good. I put together a rather unusual itinerary and she was helpful during every step of the process. At the last minute, while in Almaty, I decided to take a day off from skiing by myself to check out the local art scene. A few friends joined me too. With less than 24 hours notice she managed to organize truly one of the most memorable days of my life. She is an excellent guide, was very flexible in dealing with our group, and an absolute pleasure to be with. I highly recommend her services.

Tamera about listing Feb 8th - Bedford party 5 months ago.

Arrived in Almaty without a plan and am so thankful to have found Zhanar. The trip was spectacular.

In 4 days, Zhanar showed me the amazing and diverse landscapes across Kazakhstan - Charyn Canyon, Kaindy, Kolsai, Altyn Emel. The trip was extremely well organized, driver was safe and professional and Zhanar constantly explained the culture and history of each locale. Staying at Saty and Basshi village with the local villagers, having home-cooked meals, and engaging in light-hearted conversations were the most interesting part of the trip.

Most importantly, it is Zhanar's deep passion for both her country and her job that makes her tour special. Thank you Zhanar and see you again soon!

Sam about listing Sam - 4 day tour 7 months ago.

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.
