Short video about our food tour!
We booked a three week tour of Central Asia with AdvanTour who then contracted out to Friendly Tours for for our day tour of Alamaty. We had the pleasure of having Ola as our tour guide for a 5 hour tour. She was very knowledgeable, friendly, and happy to answer any and all of our questions about Kazakhstan. It felt like we were spending the day with a new friend! If anyone is looking for a great tour of the city with a delightful guide, book with Friendly Tours and ask for Ola!
