        Short Visit to the Almaty Region
        Very good tour for those with limited time to spend in the Almaty area. We hiked through the Charyn Canyon, visited the Black Canyon, hiked along and across the frozen Kolsai lake and did a combination horse back riding and hiking to and along the Kaindy lake. The places we visited were very beautiful and pristine, true natural wonders of Kazakhstan. Our tour guide, Nursultan, was very familiar and knowledgeable of the areas visited. He shared a lot of history, culture, and traditions of the Kazakh people during the long drives, which, made the trip more interesting. He also took us to places where we can sample / eat traditional food. Overall, very good, fun, and memorable tour!

        Best tour in Almaty region
        Had the best time in this 2 day tour to see the Charyn canyon, Kolsai and Kaindy lakes. We were travelling with a six year old and our guide Nursultan made every effort to make the trip comfortable and went ahead in a comfortable pace that out six year old could keep up. Our guide was experienced, had a ton of local knowledge and history and communicated well in English. 5/5 recommended for an introduction to this culturally rich country

        You cannot miss this tour in Almaty!
        One of the best tours I have ever been on! You cannot miss this tour if you are in Almaty. Incredible views of Big Almaty Lake and the surrounding mountains and an unforgettable hike through Ayu-Sai to see the waterfall. Nursultan taught us so much about the history and culture of Kazakhstan and I cannot recommend this tour more! We went in December when the lake was iced over, but it was still so beautiful and had a very movie-like holiday feeling to it. I would love to go back in the summer to see the greenery and bright blue colors of the lake as well!

        Incredible tour!
        Incredible tour to Medeu and Shymbulak! Great opportunity to see stunning views of Shymbulak mountains, visit the iconic Medeu skating rink and enjoy the beauty of nature right outside of Almaty. Nursultan (owner of Neomad) is so knowledgeable and friendly and made this an unforgettable experience for us.

        Amazing experience, worth the visit!
        Buckle up and get ready for a memorable show! It was like transporting back to the old times in a time machine. The costumes, the hospitality and graciousness of the employees, the welcome 'baursak' donuts and tea/ fermented milk , the horses, the archery, local music and dance, traditional yurt experience,- all contributed to a memorable experience. The equestrian show is out of this world , the handsome men and pretty girls did an awesome job on the gorgeous horses displaying magnificent skills, so all in all it was an event full of beauty. Fortunately for us it was a bright sunny morning with a majestic backdrop of snow capped mountains. This is not to be missed- really one of its kind!

        Very good sightseeing tour in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
        The sightseeing tour of Kolsai & Kaindy Lakes and Charyn Canyon was wonderful. My tour guide is friendly and very helpful; he took a very good care of me. I highly recommend this tour.

        A great trip by NEOmad
        I highly recommend this trip to anyone interested in the traditional Kazakh way of life. The reception in the Hun village was very warm and friendly and we had a great experience of seeing the life that the locals have lived for millennia. We loved tasting the traditional horse milk drink kumis and small pies which were offered at the start of the tour. Also it was a great bonus that we could actually take part of the activities like horseriding and archery. The best part of the tour though was talking to our guide Nursultan, whose knowledge of both past and present life in Kazakhstan is impressive. Most of the things we now know about Kazakh culture we heard from him. His English is perfect and he is very attentive, professional and intelligent - safe to say the best tour guide I have had the opportunity to meet.

        Exploring Shymbulak with Nur Sultan: A Journey of Warmth and Wonder
        Our guide, Nur Sultan, during our visit to Shymbulak, was an absolute gem. With a calm and comforting demeanor, he not only made sure we were comfortable but also shared captivating stories and information about the area, immersing us in the warmth of Kazakh local culture. One of the most memorable moments was when Nur Sultan prepared tea for us along the way. It was a simple gesture, but it added a touch of coziness to our adventure. Everything about our tour was seamless and perfect, thanks to his expertise and care. In his company, we didn't just explore Shymbulak; we felt like we were welcomed into the heart of Kazakhstan. It was an experience we'll treasure, and Nur Sultan played a significant role in making it so memorable.

        Horse Milk
        We visited Huns ethnic village or Traditional village tour in Talgar, one hour from Almaty. Tour started in opening the gate of the village and throwing candies on their guests, which used to be gold long time ago. Had a short brief about the activities they do in the village, introduced to the way they cook their food and tried a sour horse milk as well as tea. Explanation about how to make their tents in only 2 hours, what dress they wear, how to care for newborns etc. Traditional lunch followed by the main horse show, it takes about 40 minutes, stand and sleep on the horse, compete with each other, try to catch a lady so as to be future wife and many others. Had a chance to try arrow archery. A must visit while visiting Almaty.

        Beautiful places and great guide and perfect organization
        This was a lot of fun and really interesting. Our guide Bakhtiar was great and we really enjoyed chatting about the landscape and its history with him (hevs a very nice guy, very knowledgeable and happy to chat about everything which made the experience even better). I understand it's and expensive tour, but it's definitely worthy for what's offered. It's a private tour and there are a lot of choices in what to do. Bakhtiar always presented us with all the option snd what was included and what not and the prices. We were free to decide if to do an extra hike or relax, if to walk or take a car and Bakhtiar was alway encouraging us to do what we wanted. The places were incredible and lots of pictures opportunities and amazing views. It's nearly impossible to reach Kaindy lake alone due to the road so it was very handy having a guide and a Jeep. The food at the locals was good too. Just a pity that we had the same exact food for lunch and dinner (not our guide's fault). There were two lunches, one breakfast and one dinner included in the prices in addition to the park entrances (and all the fuss about filling the documents was quickly done by our guide). Fefinitely recommended.

        Amazing Tour
        Nursultan was an amazing guide and next to seeing the beautiful Big Almaty Lake and other places we learned a lot about Kazakhstan and its culture. We recommend this tour!

        Great cultural experience and tour guide
        Nursultan gave us an amazing tour of the ethno village, and he translated for everyone that was there. Highly recommend this trip as we really enjoyed our time and his company in this unique place.

      I had a wonderful time on this trip with a very friendly and well prepared english speaking touristguide :) After a little hiking you can reach the waterfall, what is one of the most beautiful and breathtaking places I have ever visited. After that a little visit at the Ostrich farm and in the Golden Man museum, this way the trip is a perfect combination of the beautiful nature, a little culture, and fun with animals.
      I would highly recommend this trip to everyone who want to enjoy her/his time not far from Almaty. :)
      Have fun at this cool place!
      Best wishes from a hungarian tourist :)
