This walking tour of downtown Almaty is designed to maximize your enjoyment of the must see spots of the city.
The sites we'll visit are in close proximity to each other, so we'll travel at a relaxed pace. We''l have time to really breathe in the atmosphere of the city while I share the stories that make it so special.
In case if you decide to see even more and travel some longer distances we can use public transportation to check out the new downtown area.
We will visit the old downtown area, hosting the Cathedral church, Eternal flame monument, Museum of Folk Musical Instruments, and walk "down" to the The Green Bazaar and Central Mosque

Without this tour we would not have understood the country as well. She gave a lot of historical background.
