Kazakhstan

Another stunning view of the amazing futuristic city of Nur-Sultan, capital of Kazakhstan.

Thank you for your interest in our home country of Kazakhstan.

Maybe we’re biased, but we think there’s no finer country in the entire world, with such an extraordinary variety of experiences to offer you.  Traditional historic cities, or the world’s most futuristic and modern capital city.  Dry desert, or the world’s largest inland sea.  Expansive plains as far as the eye can see, or snow-capped mountains.  Rustic heritage, or a modern space-port.

We’re very fortunate here.  Our country is probably the most prosperous of the five ‘stan nations, and the most politically/socially stable, making it a warm and welcoming place for international visitors to come and enjoy.

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.
