An Amazing City and an Amazing Guide - I was fortunate enough to go on a Food and Walking tour with Gulzat in Almaty. I was not sure what to expect as it was a last minute decision to book the tour. Any worries that I had immediately disappeared when I was greeted by Gulzat and her huge smile and friendly demeanor at the entrance to Panfilov Park. Gulzat speaks excellent English and is a wealth of knowledge and has experienced life in Kazakhstan from Soviet times until the present. We walked through the park and visited the beautiful Orthodox Cathedral and then visited the Museum of Folk Instruments. Gulzat being a musician made the museum visit truly special. We then went to a confectionary, as one must do on a food tour. Next came the Green Bazaar and we wandered past the many stalls before venturing upstairs for a meal of traditional Kazakh food. The meal was delicious and it was wonderful being in the midst of the sights, sounds and smells of the market. The next stop on our journey was a stop for some dessert at popular eatery surrounded by many friendly locals. To top off the afternoon we went for some wine tasting(who knew that Kazakhstan produces some very drinkable wine). I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to experience not just the "sights" of Almaty but also a peak into Kazakh culture. I feel privileged to have met Gulzat as she was wonderful companion for a walk around Almaty and her personal stories were a bonus. Gulzat also took a number of photos on the day and emailed them to me in the following days. In conclusion if you are thinking of going to Kazakhstan do yourself a favour and go you won't regret it and go with Gulzat and you will discover an amazing person and guide.
