Day Tours

A very popular way of building your own customized itinerary is to stay in several key locations, and then to arrange day touring in and around the area each day, returning back to the same hotel each afternoon/evening.

Here is a selection of the day tours we can arrange for you, arranged by country and then by city/region.

As always, if there’s something you want and don’t see, simply let us know and we’ll be pleased to help create exactly what you want.  That’s what we’re here for.

Choose Your Day Tour(s)

Choose from a selection of different days tours from the major tourist centers in the countries in our region. Select the countries and then locations you'll be staying in, and then choose from the available day tours in each place. Oh - and if you don't see what you're looking for, that doesn't mean it doesn't exist or isn't possible. Simply let us know what you want, and we'll see how we can find exactly what you're seeking. That's what we're here for!

Map of Kazakhstan


Kazakhstan tends to be the most popular of the 'stan countries, and - if we may say so - with good reason!
We have a great range of day touring products for you to choose from in Kazakhstan.


Rich in unspoiled natural beauty, Kyrgyzstan is a land of mountains, lakes, and beautiful vistas.
We'll be adding day tour choices in Kyrgyzstan shortly.


Just because it is the smallest doesn't mean you shouldn't also visit Tajikistan, including Ismoil Somoni Peak, the 50th tallest mountain in the world (at 24,590 ft/7495m, not an easy place to include on our normal tours!).
Look for some Tajikistan day touring to be added in 2020.


The only 'stan that doesn't share a border with Kazakhstan. It is a very empty country (although, literally beneath the surface, full of natural gas), there's still plenty to see and enjoy in Turkmenistan.
We'll be adding Turkmenistan day touring shortly.


Yes, you too can travel - and in modern comfort - on the fabled "Golden Road to Samarkand", once at the heart of the ancient Silk Road (which also passes through most of the other 'stan countries too).
Come back in 2020 to see the day touring opportunities in Uzbekistan.

Almaty City Tour

Almaty is simultaneously ancient and modern, and always an interesting city.

Our tour of the city will show you 19th century architecture, monuments, and magnificent street art, large distinctive modern buildings, and smaller historic structures.

The tour is a great opportunity to understand the history of the city and to see the magnificent landscapes of the Trans-Ili Alatau mountain range immediately outside the city!

During this tour you will reach a height of 10,000 ft (3200 m) above sea level, where you can take unforgettable photos over the city and beyond.

The guided tour is available in a selection of languages and typically starts between 9-10am when you are collected from your hotel, and you’re returned back at the end of the tour, usually between 5-6pm.  The tour is a mix of walking and being driven.

Among highlights are traveling a short distance out of town to the Medeo ice skating rink and Shymbulak ski resort (both fascinating all year round), and within the city, visiting Republic Square, the Panfilovsky Park of 28 Heroes, and the Green Bazaar.
