Alta (Altynai)

Almaty, Kazakhstan

Welcome to the Southern capital of Kazakhstan or the city of thousand colors!

I'll be happy to assist you for enjoyable exploration of Almaty and nearby
attractions in comfort and safety!
My qualified and friendly guide service will help you to explore
the biggest nomadic country in the world in interesting, opening, and fun way.
As a Kazakh guide, native to Almaty, I will help you to explore the best of Almaty and Kazakhstan. The insight is made to the history, politics, economy, people and culture.
My general education is Human Geography, with Bachelor degree from Kazakh State National University, MA degree from Indiana University, USA (2005). My US thesis was devoted to Tourism Development in Kazakhstan. My general job is lecturing sustainable development, geography, research methods at the university, where the educational language is English. I'm an open hearted person, have great communication skills, and keep thinking still, inspite of many international travels I've made, that Almaty is the best city in the world.
I will assist you also in tour customization and trip planning in order you to keep the best memories about Almaty and the country! I'm also easygoing with kids, as a mother of two, 10 and 11.

A Recent Review of this guide

Alta was a terrific guide and a very interesting person. Her broad background, both educationally and experientially, was a real boon to our special project, and she accommodated our needs with flexibility and enthusiasm. In addition, she was a fascinating conversationalist, and we very much enjoyed sitting down with her over a meal and a long conversation, learning about a wide variety of issues involving Kazakhstan and its history, both current and long past. Very highly recommended!
