Incredible tour! - Incredible tour to Medeu and Shymbulak! Great opportunity to see stunning views of Shymbulak mountains, visit the iconic Medeu skating rink and enjoy the beauty of nature right outside of Almaty. Nursultan (owner of Neomad) is so knowledgeable and friendly and made this an unforgettable experience for us.

Exploring Shymbulak with Nur Sultan: A Journey of Warmth and Wonder - Our guide, Nur Sultan, during our visit to Shymbulak, was an absolute gem. With a calm and comforting demeanor, he not only made sure we were comfortable but also shared captivating stories and information about the area, immersing us in the warmth of Kazakh local culture. One of the most memorable moments was when Nur Sultan prepared tea for us along the way. It was a simple gesture, but it added a touch of coziness to our adventure. Everything about our tour was seamless and perfect, thanks to his expertise and care. In his company, we didn't just explore Shymbulak; we felt like we were welcomed into the heart of Kazakhstan. It was an experience we'll treasure, and Nur Sultan played a significant role in making it so memorable.

A very nice experience not far from the city - I did a solo tour after my business trip in Almaty. My guide, Nur-sultan greeted me at my hotel. He drove me to the sight. He showed me around the place. He is very good company for solo-female traveler. He is very patient and flexible. He has very good background of the places and the history of Kazakstan. You will not disappoint.

Excellent trip - If you only have a short time in Almaty and want to have a memorable tour, make sure to visit Medeu. And I hope you'll be with Nursultan. Not only did he arrive just on time for the pick-up, but he also kindly explained much about Almaty throughout out visit to Medeu. He speaks English very well. He recommended a few places for us to look around in city after visiting Medeu and drove us to lunch. He’s a really great guide. I definitely recommend him :)
