Almaty Diaries - We had visited Almaty in the month of Dec 2023 and luckily we hired an amazing guide and her name is Alina who is very friendly and helped us to explore all the good places in Almaty whether it is Kolsai, Almaty lake and other good places like Shymbulak which has their own beauty. Responsibility is word came to my mind when we though abt Alina who is caring , loving and friendly. I really missed the place and highly recommend Amatyinsporations as your tour guide. I look forward to visit again and cover all the places which we never been to and ofcourse with Alina as our Guide:) Almaty you will be surely missed till we meet again :) Till the time Hasta Luego .
