Islam is the most knowledgeable, kind, attentive guide possible. He is truly passionate about his homeland and welcomed us like we were part of his family. I would recommend it to everyone who wants to know the richness of Kazakhstan culture and history while visiting it’s breathtaking wild nature. The trip around Shymkent was the cherry on the top of our visit and we will definitely come back. Рақмет!


Thanks for the trip. We had a good time with Deggie and definitely recommend his services. He speaks good English and has good knowledge and interesting information to share. Thanks for telling us stories about Mongolia!


Baha was really understanding and flexible when our plans changed. He was well organised and the trip ran smoothly, and he provided a great lunch. I'd definitely recommend tours with him.


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 convers...


Sanjar took me to a Kopkari game I would never have been able to hear of and find otherwise. Very helpful in all other aspects, offering his assistance for the rest of my trip. Thanks a lot !


It will be an amazing trip with Erkaiym! I was travelling alone around Kyrgyzstan last September and I took a horse riding tour guided by Erkaiym. Before the tour she was so careful of asking me what exactly I want and try to adjust the price. We did a 3 days horse ride trek around Kol ukok lake and Son Kul lake. She provides that we can stay with the local people and know everything about their way of life because we can life with them. Erkayim translated everything they said and try to exp...


We really enjoyed the trip to Big Almaty Lake and the Cosmo Station with Timur and his friend, driver Sergey. Timur ensured that we enjoyed every moment and even my 4-year old son liked the time spent with Timur. Timur helped to snap lots of our family photos. Sergey is also a really good driver who managed to drive along the snowy and icy road in the mountains. All the time we felt safe during the trip. Even when we were discussing the plan for the trip, Timur was very responsive and provide...

Everything was great. Madina was an excellent guide and gave us a good insight on Almaty n the country’s history. Thank you.


Hi, the organisation went very smoothly.We had Ibec as a driver/guide and we were very happy about his services. He is very nice and he even proposed an extra stop to a small zoo on the road to Burana considering that we were travelling with children. We highly recommend. Thanks, Simona


Everything was great, we saw all the sights in comfort. She was fantastic in assisting us and showing us all the sights and showing us around the museum in Gobustan. Gunel even came equipped with hot tea which was perfect in the cold! Easy to organise via Whatsapp and always willing to help with more. Highly recommended!


We have not yet taken our Uzbekistan tour, bur our experience with Beck during the back and forth dialogue regarding a potential trip has been extremely positive. We had interactions with other guides, but Beck was by far the most professional, thorough in terms of answering questions and offered amazing response time. Our interaction with Beck was the main reason we booked the trip through him....can't wait for the tour itself.

Soko and friends

I have just ended the 3 day semi desert and Khustai National park tour and to conclude, the whole experience was tremendously pleasant. Soko was very responsive during our correspondence online and upon meeting her, we were pleased to learn that she is equally helpful and engaging. The driver, Norvoo, was friendly and very helpful despite not being able to speak any English.Due to the fact that we are pescastarians, Soko prepared all our meals herself and the food was indeed wholesome and tas...

Ilyas was very helpful by organizing everything. He was not in Aralsk himself, but he has lots of friends there. Had some doubts at first, but after all everything turned out well. He really knows the region and neighborhood and can recommend where to go and what to do.

I booked the pamir highway trip with Saidbek and from the first moment he was really helpful and accommodating. I went in November, despite lot of people telling me not to go and hence I had lot of doubts but Saidbek managed to clear my doubts and the trip went very smoothly with no problems what so ever. Saidbek has been incredibly helpful throughout my trip and I could contact him whenever I needed to. The guesthouses, car and procedure were all up to the mark. The driver was really nice, c...

Sanjar is a very insightful tour guide and went out of his way to help us when we required assistance in some matters.


This was my second trip with Erkaiym and it was brilliant! I was so happy to see Erkaiym again, and with very little input from me, she had organised the most incredible trip and was exactly what I wanted to do. Erkaiym also helped me book an internal flight to save me travel time which wasn’t part of her tour, but that’s just Erkaiym - happy to help visitors anyway she can. I always felt safe with Erkaiym and our driver, Melis, and they were both great fun. There was one day that I asked to ...
