Fuego Almaty City Tour 🔥 - Miras showed me a great time in Almaty. I requested to get coffee before we began and he granted my wish. We did each tour as planned and he answered all of my questions. I think the conversations we had were the best parts - this man is very knowledgeable about Kazakhstan, Almaty, and then various subcultures in the country. As an American who had just a little knowledge of Russian hip hop, Miras schooled me on how Almaty is a rap hub for Russian hip hop. To be clear, this was not part of the tour but just a stream of conversations we had, haha. I think my favorite part of the tour was the trip to the bazaar - Miras gave me the downlow on bargaining, so he made sure I didn't get swindled by merchants. I have been to lots of bazaars throughout the Balkans and now Central Asia, but the one I interacted with the most was with Miras at the Green Bazaar in Almaty. The merchants were letting me have lots of free samples of everything they had to offer, yet they were not pushy like other merchants I had been around (barring one man who tried to rip me off but did not succeed). Miras also helped me pick out chocolate to bring back to my friends from the Rakhat factory/store. As we walked around Arbat Street, I was given several recommendations on eats and places to visit. We capped things off with шашлык and Miras dropped me off at the mall so I could check out some crispy Kazakh brands he told me about. Sincerely, a great trip. I love Kazakhstan and I plan to return to Almaty at some point. Great tour!

Guide did not communicate the timings properly - Guide did not communicate the timings properly. We spent most of the time in Kok Tobe and after we came down from the hill, he said the time is up and he can't go for the city tour.

Wastage of Money - This tour is not worth the money. The tour provided can be done by booking a taxi through YandexGo. I wont recommend anyone for this tour as it is wastage of money.
