5 day tour through national parks

I joined a five day tour through the Altyn Emel national park, the Charyn national park and the Kolsai national park. The nature was very beautiful and fascinating with a big variety of different kind of landscapes, definitely worth being visited!
Our guide Asel was very friendly and organised and explained a lot during the tour, her English and German were both very good. Our driver Galim was friendly as well (as far as I could understand him) and I always felt very save with him in the car. They both took good care of us throughout our whole trip. I was also picked up and returned to my accommodation at the start and at the end of our excursion. 
All interaction in advance with the company owner Olya went very smooth and quick, also here the communication in English was very easy. Taken together, I had five wonderful days visiting Kazakhstan’s amazing landscape and can highly recommend Friendly Tours to any person visiting the country!
