Zhanar is an extremely nice person and an excellent guide who speak english fluently. She knows a lot of things about Kazakhstan's history, culture, customs, etc. She also know many people and she seems to have friends everywhere. We explored together Altyn-Emel with my wife and her sister. It was a beautiful experience. I think next time we should spend 3 days there to hike and see more. I definitely recommend to hire her for a successful trip.

Honestly and trust worthiness are two great characters of a tour guide. I would paraphrase an American insurance company ‘s trademark: “ YOU ARE IN GOOD HANDS WITH ZHANAR (JANNA)”. Janna is truly a professional guide. She arranged every detail without a hitch. She provided help even after her tenure ended, and this shows that one can trust her 100% when she is your guide. Thank you Janna, for a wonderful experience during my travel in Central Asia.

I have hired her for numerous occasions and she is honestly the best and most knowledgeable guide I can find in the region. Her best trait is her ability to connect and talk to different types of people. She really knows how to bring her clients exactly what you’re looking for. I highly recommend hiring her.


First of all, Zhanar is a lovely person. Smiling, listening, sharing and caring. During my two days stay in Almaty, she organized everything for me. She booked me a cool accomodation, with heavenly good home-made breakfast and dinner. I had a day-long trekking in the mountains planned, so she made sure I go there with a Kazakh champion mountain rescue member. Impressive. We also visited Charyn canyons. A long drive from Almaty, but we had a really good conversation on the road. We even had a little picnic ar the river Charyn. She tried to show me everything possible in my short period of stay. She even helped me buy a local SIM card, off-tour. She speaks very good English, and she's very patient. Plus, she's flexible in organizing programmes, just ask her, she'll come up with great ideas. I am happy I chose her as my guide, and I would happily contact her again, if somehow life would take me to Kazakhstan again. Thank you Zhanar!
