Kirill arrived 10 minutes early to our hotel, and had water and hand wipes waiting for us in the car to make our day trip more comfortable. The car was wonderful -- very comfortable, with separate AC controls for the front seat and the back seat. Kirill was very professional and friendly, and was a safe driver and easy to talk to. We had a lovely outing at the Tamgaly petroglyph site. I was a little uncomfortable with some of the trails, which seemed a bit unstable and less than fully safe, but the petroglyphs really were quite outstanding, and the area was very beautiful. I absolutely recommend Kirill for anyone looking for a driver in Kazakhstan.
Everything was perfect. Andrey is an excellent and very profesional guide! He can drive very well which is important in this country. He was also open to do some modifications if we asked for. We can recomend andrey! Very Nice person.
I have been recently on a 3 nights/4 days camping trip with Andrey in southeast Kazakhstan and it has been a fantastic experience. The trip included Altyn Emel, the canyons area and Kaindy lake. He has been really able to organise the trip in the best way, combining both hiking and camping. He brought me in many inaccessible and non touristic places to camp on the shore of deep river canyons where there was nobody than us. This has been possible because he know deep in detail those places and he is really able to drive his jeep, which is more than a normal vehicle: it's big, confortabile and very resistant to the countryside roads. Moreover, he's very friendly, he likes nature and is adaptable to every tipe of different situations. Lastly, he is an excellent cooker! I recommend him to everyone who like trips deeply in contact with nature, out from ordinary touristic itineraries and who like hiking.
We're happily looking back to a great time we've had on our tour. 4 days of unforgottable memories thanks to our competent, open-minded and communicative tourguide Zhanar. We never felt uncomfortable, nor stressed. She was very helpful and cared about our wellbeing. We had much fun all the time, remembering also the evening she teached us the russian card game Durak;-) We've had a really great time with you! Thank you very much, Zhanar! Philip & Patrick
Andrey was away on another tour, but his partner Demetri was a fantastic tour guide! Our trip to Big Almaty Lake came with an unexpected hike that was breathtakingly beautiful! Our guide and driver were both friendly, knowledgeable, punctual, and professional. I would definitely use their services again in the future.
Our guide was Andrey's partner as Andrey was not available for our dates. The tour was organized perfectly, everything was working as planned and agreed with Andrey. Both days we really enjoyed. Andrey's partner was really helpful and extremely willing to helps us with our lost baggage at the airport, and he was prepared for everything and he did everything to make our 2-days tour unforgettable. Thanks a lot. I would definitely recommend this tour.
We had a 3-day tour with Sergey from Almaty to Charyn Canyon, overnight in Temerlik Canyon in tents, lakes Kolsay and Kaindy, overnight near lake Kaindy in tents and back to Almaty all inclusive. Sergey is a very experienced driver who knows his car, terrain, weather, has lots of useful things with him to solve any situation on the road (not only tents and food, also washing water, sunsheet, repellents etc.). He knows places along the way to get great local dining, he knows people in the area, which is super helpful and made our trip absolutely smooth and care free. We were 6 women so we needed that feeling of safety and Sergey was very good at providing this. I recommend his services to anyone who wants to explore real Kazakhstan and natural beauty of this country.
I had a really short time to organize a trip when I decided to write a demand on indy guide. Zhanara directly proposed me a few options that were pretty close to what I wanted. Talking together , we decided to make a mix so we can reach my goal. Zhanara were very very quick for organising everything and also very concerned about my safety (traveling alone), my confort and my desires. Thank you zhanara for being so helpfully, I will always remember those perfect days...
We had a very smooth experience in the process of arranging our trip with Sergey and he was a great guide on our trips to Charyn Canyon as well as Issyk Lake and Turgen Waterfall. We took two day trips out of Almaty starting 8:30AM. Sergey drove well at good speed and we were always made to feel comfortable. We enjoyed the variety he offered; passing by animal markets on the way, a stop for a fresh baked bread from the tandoor oven on the way or jumping on the roof for a small ride once inside the canyon to make it very fun and diverse. He not only provided us with various suggestions for lunch but also listened to what we were after...which was a local normal priced spot with authentic food and thats exactly what we got! delicious shashlik of duck and lamb, traditional noodles and manti. All in all a fair price, nice guide and great experience of Kazakhstan!
The expedition with Kirill was amazing and professionally organized in every way. Kirill is a great guy with huge knowledge of interesting places in Kazakhstan and a cool travel companion. Another adventage of him is that he speaks polish. I sincerely recommend a trip with him. Wyprawa z Kirillem była niesamowita, profesjonalnie zorganizowana pod każdym względem. Kirill to super gość, wielki znawca ciekawych miejsc w Kazachstanie, fajny kompan podróży. Znajomość języka polskiego dodatkowo działa na jego korzyść. Serdecznie polecam wszystkim wyprawy z nim.
Andrey is awesome! Our group of 3 young women felt completely safe with Andrey, who was unfailingly kind, polite, and helpful. He was also really flexible when we had spontaneous requests. We took the tour to Charyn Canyon and Kolsai Lakes and loved every minute. He took a little picnic for us at the canyon, and helped us row our boat on Kolsai. Beautiful and highly recommend!
I made a personalized tour with Andrey, him is really disponible to plan the right tour that you prefer. Andrey is really funny and expert on the natural locations, a really good driver and is really organized on camping (him cooking very well). We hiked many times. Also the car travels was funny, we have done many of-road roads and we gone down to canyons with his comfortable and safety of-road car. Andrey know some unusual locations, and know some good point of view and this is important for a photographic tour. An other thing is that Andrey know local peoples and local laws and this is very important if you want to go in the national parks. We had a really good wild tour, and I'm happy for this!
Kiril is a good guide! Funny and prepared for tours. Unfortunately I cannot do the planned tour, but we went on mountains for two days. Him have a comfortable car and is really disponible to plan the right tour that you want!
Kirill was a great choice for our tour to Big Almaty Lake and Big Almaty Peak. Kirill was very responsive, punctual and knowledgable and was able to answer all our question. I would definitely recommend Kirill as a guide.
Trip with Kirill was amazing. He is no doubt a fantastic guide, driver and companion. I recommend him with all my heart to everybody who wants to see the real beauty of Kazakhstan. He also has a really comfortable 4x4 car, which is crucial on the off-road tracks. *** Podróz z Kirillem była niesamowita. To fantastyczny przewodnik, który mówi doskonale po polsku. Z całego serca go polecam, bo jest świetnym kierowcą i kompanem. Ma też świetny i bardzo wygodny samochód, co jest bardzo istotne podczas off-roadowych tras.
Andrey was a terrific guide. He was extremely patient and knowledgeable and even got us out of a tricky situation when we got caught in a downpour which caused a mudslide. We had a blast on our two day tour of Kolsai Lake, Kaindy Lake and Charyon Canyon. I highly recommend his services and guarantee you won't be disappointed. Book with confidence.
We had a great trip with Andrey to Kazakhstan/Kyrgyzstan. I really can't say enough good things about him. Professional, flexible, personable and has the right vehicle for the job. Exactly what we were looking for in a guide. Through rain, hail and flood, Andrey delivers. Would most definitely use him again and recommend him to anyone needing a guide in Kazakhstan.
Zhanara is a fun, smart, intelligent and articulate person and she has a great personality. She is very organized and flexible and will prepare the tour to your liking. She is fluent in English, Kazakh, Russian and Turk and she wants to learn French as her next language... With Zhanara you will not only have a wonderful experience with a very knowledgeable person but also interesting discussions. Enjoy your trip
As I planned this trip only 5 days in advance, Andrey was not available himself but his russian speaking colleague was. As I don't speak russian, a student friend of the driver accompanied us who was able to speak english. Everything went well, I had a great day.
I had really nice time with Dmitriy in Almaty. He showed me main attractions of Almaty City and Big Almaty lake tours. Overall great experience.
Nice guys. Vehicle very confortable. They make everything to do your tour. Thank you.
Zhanara was a wonderful, experienced, down-to-earth, friendly & flexible guide to have in and around Almaty. Her language proficiency in English, Kazakh, Russian and Turkish is a bonus. I cannot recommend her more, she is an absolute delight!
We were really lucky to be on this tour. Sergey was a wonderful guide and was dedicated, trustworthy and skilful in adventure tours. He brought us to so many beautiful places in Kazakhstan and beyond. At the end of the tour he even went out of the way to arrange a taxi for us to our next destination because we can't speak Russian. A++
We spent 3 days at Sharyn Canyon, Kolsai Lakes and Kaindy Lake with Dorzhi, Sergey's assistant. Dorzhi is a dynamic, sporty and funny young man, and an excellent cook. His English skills may have to be improved but we managed to comunicate perfectly.
Very professional, Gt 4X4, Gd company. Gd English. Nice unexpected extras. Very enjoyable day. Thanks.
Andrey was a great driver and guide. He was puntual and exact with his time estimations, drove very safely and his car was very comfortable. After arriving in the canyon we walked into the valley along the main path, had a picknick, for which he brought coffee and tea, and rested and walked around in the canyon valley. After the break we visited some traditional yurts and climbed a path into the canyon. On top we saw beautiful views of the entire canyon from above. After, we returned to Almaty following a different road and saw herds of cattle, horses and sheep along the way, as well as interesting birds and scenery. Andrey told us many interesting things and answered our questions throughout the day. We had a great time and would definitely recommend him as a guide!
Unfortunately we had to cancel our 6 week trip to Central Asia which included a one day trip with Andrey to the Canyon. He was very prompt in replying to questions and we have no hesitation in booking a future trip with Andrey when the situation arises.
After all the arrangements done, Darkhan put together a trip that was perfect for the time I had in Almaty. It was demanding but we covered Charon Canyon, Big Almaty lake and other attractions in one day. He knows the city and the areas we visited very well which made the trip more enjoyable. Definitely a great experience while in Almaty!
Everything went smoothly and we had a great and memorable day with Islam. He picked us up on time from our hotel in a very spacious and comfortable vehicle and drove us to Turkestan, where he showed us around all the sights and monuments explaining the history - in very good English!! The whole day was pleasant and enjoyable and all so easy. Thanks, Islam!
Kirill is great The Visits are awesome
We would like to thank our guide Dorje for the fantastic adventure. After the tour it felt like he was not only our guide but also our friend. Its a man with his own style, but to discover the real Kazakhstan its the man you need!
We had a great trip to Bishkek with Talgat. He's a very good driver and made sure that we got both beers and food along the way :-) I can really recommend Talgat if you need a driver and a guide.
We had an excellent trip with Sergey and would definitely recommend him to other travelers. He was on time to pick us up, and throughout the day he was aware of timings to ensure we got enough time in each place. His knowledge of the country was very interesting and informative, and although he doesn't speak much English, communication was not a problem at all. Sergey catered the trip to what we wanted to do, but was also realistic and gave advice on timings and activities. Thank you Sergey, a great trip!
Andrey was an excellent and very thoughtful guide. He took us to Charyn Canyon (where we went on a very fun climb), Kolsai lake and Kaindy lake - and he always had interesting things to tell us, as well as delicious picnics in beautiful places. His car was very comfortable even when driving through rivers, and he has great music! Everything was well organized and well timed. We really enjoyed these two days and we would dedinitely reccommend Andrey!
yuri and olga are very helpful people with a large culture of their country. They share their meal with us as the tradition of their beautiful country. If you have to choose only one guide in this site choose them. they are top and very friendly. i recommand them for sure. Pour les français foncé je ne pense pas que vous trouverez mieux....
A brilliant day! Sergey took very good care of us all. It was an excellent day enjoyed by all. Thank you!
Everything went amazing and great!! Talgat has been the best tour leader ive had :)))). He was very proffesional and honest. I will definitely meet with him again !!!
Eugenette was waiting for us at Shymkent airport with her driver Nur Ali, a kind welcoming guy. The trip to Aristanbab, the master of Yasawi, allowed us to meet camels on the road, and the visit of Otrar city ancient remains was quite interesting. We had lunch in the western - like town of Turkestan before visiting the Mausoleum of Akmet Yasawi -stunningly beautiful. Besides the fact that Eugenette is a French - speaking guide, the day spent with her and Nour Ali was quite enjoyable and friendly. We had intrrsting chat about life in Kazakhstan and other matters. On our way back to Shymkent by 5pm, she made us visit her beautiful guest - house in Shymkent downtown. We strongly recommend Eugenette as a skillful guide for her professional quality and friendly welcome, to those who wish to viit South Kazakhstan. We'll surely contact her for future trips! Thanks Eugenette and à bientôt!
Elvira is a very friendly and nice person. We started the tour from Shymkent with her and her father. During the long trip on the silk road to Turkistan, they gave me a lot of information. We visited several places including Arystan Bab and Khoja Ahmed Yasawi's mausoleums. It was a wonderful tour. Everything was great.
The room was clean and nice. Location is good, very near the airport. It was also pleasure to meet with her family. They were very kind and hospitable.
