About Us

"Let's wander where the wifi is weak"


On summer 2016 after working in different hotels of Almaty a beautiful idea came to our mind - what if we could create some friendly helper for all tourists and expats who are coming to our city? Idea became real pretty fast - at August 2016 we issued first edition of our Friendly Map of Almaty and we continue working on that project every day! 

As addition to our map we decided to provide tours in and around Almaty - unforgettable travel adventures in a laid-back ambiance with friendly knowledgeable guides. 

These intimate, limited trip itineraries are built on the insights, experience, and relationships we built with our partners.

Gaukhar, co-founder & tour-guide:

"I am very lucky - I do what I really love: meet new people from all over the world and share with them the best what my country has to offer such as astounded nature, finger-licking cuisine and, of course, people - the most valuable part of any trip. During my own travels (mostly US & Europe) I understood that the long-lasting memories are created not by sights you visited, but by personal connections you made. So, almost all of our clients we meet during the tours somehow become our friends - and that is my favourite part of the work. I live and work in Kazakhstan all my life and still get excited by new places, new stories and new routes I can show to travellers! So, I very much look forward to meeting and perhaps hosting you on a Friendly Tours adventure in the near future."
