Kazakhstan is an interesting, but at the same time little-studied country.
The former capital of Kazakhstan is the city of Almaty. The city is located in the mountains, there are mountains everywhere around too. But there are also a huge number of attractions around that a tourist cannot get to on their own, because buses do not go there. It is connected with this that it is recommended to use the services of guides for excursions. There is no need to worry about the price here, usually the services of a guide are cheaper than a taxi. But in this case, the tourist will be taken to the place of attraction and will be told about it and brought back. On the Tourism of Kazakhstan portal, you can get more information about excursions in Almaty.
