When I arrived at the Almaty airport, I was greeted by Konstantin and started the Charyn Canyon tour straight away. He and the driver made me feel very comfortable and it was very informative. It was a long day for all of us, but they took their time and made this trip great! The next day Konstantin met me at my hotel and we went to the Big Almaty Lake. All I can say is that it is truly a breath-taking place. Again, we took our time and I was able to relax and enjoy the scenery and weather! The last day we did a city tour around Almaty. It was raining, but Konstantin made the most out of it. Ponchos and umbrellas were provided which was an added bonus since all I packed was a jacket. Again, we saw various places in the city. I got to try camel and horse milk and before sending me off to the airport, we ate at a Kazakhstan restaurant which the food was great! All I can say is that they take pride in their company and you won't regret booking with them. All of the drivers were exceptional and Konstantin made me feel very comfortable and the tours were not rushed at all. I was able to enjoy every minute of it. Lunch is also provided and it is homemade! You can't beat that!
