Me and my friend went for a trip in the Altyn Emel Park and Sharyn Canyon with Timur and his friend Dmitryi who is often accompanying archeological expeditions in Kazakhstan and has a deep knowledge of the terrain and the history of the region. The gentlemen organized everything for us including the car, hotels and food. As an experienced camper, Dmitryi had his car equipped to be ready for any circumstances - including ramdlomy stopping in the park and serving us all coffe and little nibbles...


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 introductio...

Tatyana was very responsive and was able to tailor a day of travels around Almaty that met our needs. She and her husband picked us up at our hotel at the designated time and were very professional, informative and fun! We learned a lot about Kazakhstan from them and they made the long day of driving/exploring very exciting and not a drag. We were lucky in that we went on this trip at the end of October before the snow really settled in. We were able to take a small car for most of the trip a...

Great tour; contact for travel arrangements was easy. Dorzhi picked me up in time at Almaty airport on a snowy November morning for the tour to Tamgaly. Huge, very comfortable jeep, safe driving and a joyful conversation. The tour was very interesting, good lunch provided and I was dropped at the airport in-time for my onward travel. The tour was worth for money and Dorzhi was a great travel companion. He gave me new ideas for other trips I can do with him in the future. Overall recommended.


Kirill was a good and safe driver with a great vehicle for offroad and icy conditions! He was willing to change the itinerary on the trip to include more activities like a waterfall visit on route to Big Almaty lake. Overall, well done.


We highly recommend Dilabek as your guide. I asked him a lot of questions before confirming him as our guide and he replied us promptly and patiently every times. He is a reliable and flexible person. We had the problem in getting the registration in police station and needed to back and forth to police station many times to get it. However, he could brought us to look around different places and got the registration at the same time. He has a wealth of historical and cultural knowledge that ...


Thanks to Khakim we had a great day at Charyn Canyon. Kakhim is a guide and a driver very pleasant and very professional. I know where to go for my excursions and "off the beaten track" tours on my next trip to Almaty.


Travelling with Tatyana is always wonderful. She is a positive person who is passionate about guiding and always keen to ensure that you have a good experience. She likes to share a lot of information about the places that she takes you to. She likes you to feel comfortable and well fed as a guest which is really important. I am always impressed with the food that is provided. Tatyana is a great guide, and I would recommend her.
