Almaty Day Tours

Here are our three most popular day tours in the Almaty area.

Of course, there are plenty more tours available, and plenty more places and things to see and do.  Let us know if there’s another tour you’d also like to enjoy during your stay in Almaty.

Almaty City Tour

Almaty is Kazakhstan's largest city, and was the capital until Nur-Sultan became that in 1997. So there's a lot to see and do in Almaty. You're collected from your hotel in the morning, taken on 2/3rd of a day of touring in your preferred language, and returned to your hotel at the end of the experience (or dropped in a central city location if you prefer).

Big Almaty Lake & Falcon Farm Tour

This is a day we spend out of Almaty, visiting the beautiful Big Almaty Lake, and then on the return, stopping at the Falcon Farm for a traditional display of falconry. Hotel pickup and return included.

Charyn Canyon Tour

This is a wonderful day's experience and one of our most popular tours. After collecting you early in the morning, we travel 3 1/2 hours or so east to the stunning Charyn Canyon, often described as Kazakhstan's version of the US Grand Canyon. After time at the canyon, including a break for lunch, we return back to Almaty. Hotel pickup and return included.

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.
