I truly recommend SUV tour. Everything was well organized. The guide Chingiz was professional, friendly and flexible to our needs.
Ww were not properly equipped for the long trekking and the guide proposed us an alternative itinerary which was amazing as well. We will come back to Almaty region to visit other beautiful places and we will use SUV tour again

Superb organisation, professionalism, knowledge of the region, comfortable and strong car, tactful conduct and last but not least our guide’s pleasant personality. Kirill was a very nice guide and an excellent driver. Practically everything we did together was beyond our expectations.

Excellent response time both in communication and repayment. Due to Covid19, they refunded promptly even though our accommodations have been prebooked and paid in advance.

We look forward to using their services when this is over. I like Kirill’s integrity, effectiveness and prompt responses.

Thank you SUVtours for your commendable customer service. We’ll certainly recommend you to others. Keep safe stay positive until we meet up. Cheers

We took the 8 days tour to Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. Kirill’s responses over email were fast and detailed so we decided to proceed with the tour.

Unfortunately, Kirill could not make it as our guide as his car broke down but we were very lucky to have Ruslan as our driver and guide over the 8 days. Ruslan was extremely supportive and helpful in our hikes which I needed much help with. He was also very humorous and he taught us few local and Russian words and dance moves.

One of us fell very ill during the tour and Ruslan drove us for 5 hours to get us back to the city center at 1am. We are very grateful for his kindness and concern.

Ruslan was very patient and always endure that we have sufficient water with us during the tour and making sure that we are comfortable in his well-kept vehicle.

The sites visited are amazing. 8 days felt slightly too long after the 5th or 6th day but we did not regret visiting any of the amazing landscapes. Hikes were not easy on some days but the end points are stunning. We crossed the border to Kyrgyzstan on the 5th day and the queue was pretty. Coming back was rather scary though as it was a Sunday and many locals were attempting to cross the borders which do not have proper queues at the custom offices. Many were pushing, children were crying and we finally got across after 40 minutes or so. It was a great experiences though and Kyrgyzstan is an interesting place to visit.

Kazahkstan is a beautiful country and we really love both the city center and the magnificent landscapes in the sites visited. We are missing it again.

We will not hesitate to book another tour with Krill and his team if we visit Kazahkstan again!

I have traveled to many countries but have never experienced such a wonderful tour experience as I had with Kirill.

Kirill is very professional.

From the day I wrote to him, he has been extremely responsive in all emails, knows all the answers to every question we had, and his rates were also reasonable.

Throughout our trip, I must say he has got to be one of the sturdiest and most experienced drivers I’ve met as we went through some of the bumpiest/slippery roads and slopes but he remained calm and was good at handling it. He was also very accommodating and great with recommendations based on our requirements and needs. His SUV was clean, comfortable and definitely looked like one of the best choices around. The accommodation and food he provided us were also very comfortable and seem like excellent choices.

He was kind enough to throw in additional itinerary/activities for us especially since we had such odd hour flights. We were also provided with photos from his drone which was really appreciated and a very good bonus.

Another thing I thought I should highlight was the fact that I was traveling with my mom and her friends who were all in their 60s. We've lived in tropical countries all our lives and traveling to Almaty during winter was quite an experience. I appreciated how he was attentive to their capabilities and needs. He was very well prepared as well eg; he was always ready with good hot coffee from his trunk whenever we did any walk around the icy cold mountains. So, if you’re traveling with senior citizens, Kirill will make it a worry-free trip ;).

Overall, I would definitely be using Kirill again when I return to Kazakhstan and would gladly vouch for him or recommend him to any friends and family. :)

We had a tailor-made 7-day trip in Almaty. It was well organized by Kirill. This is the first time for us to visit Almaty and we had a lot of questions. Kirill was very patient and responded immediately via email or WhatsApp. He was so considerate that he helped us to get the stamps on the migration cards online. We did not have to register with the migration police, saving our time.
We had a great time in Altyn Emel National Park. The three guides, Kosta, Ruslan and Alex, made a perfect team. They were professional, knowledgeable, humorous, caring and thoughtful. Of course, they were all skillful drivers. The majestic scenery left us breathless. The thrills and adventures on the bumpy rides made our trip unforgettable.
The guide of the city tour, Valentina, was cheerful and knowledgeable. Her passion about Almaty made us plan to visit Almaty again.
Highly recommended.

I did 3 tours with Kirill over 3 days. Everything was perfect.

I booked via e-mail. On the first day Kirill arrived at the hotel on time. The SUV was clean (and was cleaned every day), had comfortable seats and AC. Kirill was a safe driver, spoke excellent English and was able to answer lots of questions about Kazakhstan. He also didn’t mind stopping a lots of places for me to take photos.

The first tour was Tamgalay Tas & the City of Nomads. Tea, Coffee and some light snacks were provided. The views were fantastic. I thought the City of Nomads was especially interesting.

The second tour was a 1 day express tour to Kaindy Lake, Kolsai Lake and Charyn Canyon. It was a very long day but excellent in every way. Tea, Coffee and light snacks were provided. We visited Kaindy Lake first, then had lunch at a guest house near by. The lunch was beef plov with homemade breads, salad and biscuits. It was cheap, tasty and filling. After this we visited the first Kolsai lake and then onto Charyn Canyon in time for sunset. What was also enjoyable was the car journey - passing through small villages, mountains and steppe, seeing farmers on horses rounding up their cattle. I would highly recommend this tour.

The last tour was Big Almaty Lake with the Cosmo station. This was another enjoyable tour. I thought Big Almaty Lake was really beautiful. At the Cosmo station we walked for about an hour in the mountains. The views were amazing. The day finished by visiting a grill. The food was delicious.

If I return to Kazakhstan I would use SUVtours again. Everything was professional and well organised.

Me and my partner had the pleasure of taking a tour with SUVtours. Our guide was Dima and he was very professional with excellent English and good knowledge of the sites.
I highly recommend the 16 hour trip to people that cannot spend 2 days to see the Kaindy and Kolsai lakes. This trip combines those with the wonderful Charyn Canyon.

The long day was well worth and paid with spectacular views through the day.
