          Conflicting emotions
          My tour started off great. Two young men served as my guides, and they drove me to the location. We reached the peak and enjoyed the views for quite some time. The hike was quite difficult for me, but the guides were incredibly helpful in assisting me up there. I have a soft spot for young people who do their best, so we talked a lot, and the guides were very enthusiastic to share about their culture. Overall, I enjoyed the trip, and the guys took care of me for the whole day. However, the reason for my 1/5 rating is this. I was appalled to find out how little those young men were paid, given how much I was charged for the tour. They spent their entire day with me and received only a tiny fraction of what I had paid. I ended up giving them tips because I always try to support hard-working young people. It's outrageous and left me feeling disappointed.

          Our Kazakhstan trip
          Our tour guide Madi was awesome. Perfect tour to see a National Park in Kazakhstan. Madi made sure we were well taken care of the entire day.

          Amazing Custom Work On My Unusual Request
          What an amazing tour company. I needed a specific, custom request of an english speaking driver to take me to various out of the way places. I'm a photographer and I had an unusual itinerary. Astana Guide Tours went out of their way to fulfill the request, finding the right driver. They really thought about what I needed and did not just simply offer some sort of regular package. Definitely call them with any request!

          Car-rental arrangements in Astana
          Astana Guide Tours helped me complete the near-impossible, ie arrange a self-drive rental car in Astana for a short (5 day trip) there in July 2022. They were really helpful, responding almost immediately to a speculative email (unlike almost all of about 15 other companies that I contacted...) and really listening to what I wanted to do (which was not too simple or standard) before suggesting options. Olgerd, with whom I swapped numerous emails has brilliant English and is totally organised and Amir, the guide who met us on the day was a delight to be with as we co-ordinated with the rental company with regard to collecting the car, sorting out the final arrangements and, on the next day too via the phone when I had to change some drop-off arrangments at short notice. Everything went very smoothly and everything that they said would happend did happen. Based on what I have seen, I highly recommend these guys for any excursisions, travel arrangements etc in the Astana area.

          Great opportunity to get to know Nur-Sultan / Astana
          As the city of Nur-Sultan / Astana is not very easy for an independent traveller, I decided to book this tour. It was effortless and super interesting. My guide Amandyk was very knowledgable and nice. He not only showed me the main sights but also explained the history and current affairs of Kazakhstan. Totally recommended!

          Today we was in Burabai and it was a amazing experience. It’s a beautiful view there and we would do this trip everytime again. Our Guide Sukhrab showed us everything and told us about the history of this place. The hole team was very friendly and we can recommend this tour to everyone.

          Excellent service !
          I booked this company for a two day tour of Astana (Astana city tour and Alzhir). I also booked with them the airport transport on my arrival/departure from Astana. Very quick replies and everything organized in an excellent manner. I had Galym for the two days and he also pick me up from the airport. I fully recommend this company.

          Very professional, great customer service
          We booked 4 days of tours, 2 in Astana, one to the labor camp museum at Karaganda, and one in Almaty. My numerous emails were answered within a few hours. The company created an itinerary for the guides to follow, right down to what to order for us at a particular restaurant. Everything was very well organized. There were no issues or problems with the tours. I will make three comments: (1)The Astana guide's car did not have working seat belts in the back, even though I had been assured that all cars would have seat belts. (2) The Almaty guide's English level was "advanced" and not "fluent." He sometimes struggled to explain something in English. (3) A minor note is that the website's English is garbled and awkward in places, almost like a Google translation was done. They might want to hire a native English speaker to rewrite the website.

          The tour we took was customised for us as we wanted to see Astana and it's sights lit up at night. The driver did a great job and was full of information even to the million questions I asked. The company were also a great help in finding a location for an event we wanted to hold in Astana. Very professional, very helpful, answer any questions very quickly and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend 😀

          Very good tour and trip agency
          Based on their positive tripadvisor reviews, we booked a 1- day Burabay tour. I found the service and response of this tour agency to be excellent. Easily 5-stars. My emails were promptly responded to, and everyone showed up when they were supposed to.Our guide had great knowledge about national park and his English was good.We had lunch (included) tried national cuisine and even horse milk. The only drawback was weather, it was cloudy and we could not make clear pictures. Fortunately, by the end of the tour sun appeared for several hours. Overall, everything was perfect and perfectly-arranged. We would recommend this tour service to anyone visiting Kazakhstan.

        The itinerary was perfect for anyone who wants to have a quick overview of the city. My guide was very helpful and friendly and spoke English well. Would strongly recommend for anyone who has couple of hours to spare to have a quick look at the city

        It was an excellent tour that covered most of the main points of interest in Astana, and was tailored to my needs. These needs included wanting to spend a lot of time at the National Museum and needing to get to the airport by 3 pm for my flight. The guide Zhanna is excellent, very knowledgeable and her English is excellent. She also has an excellent sense of humor and the tour was a lot of fun.

        As for now it’s not always easy to find a tour that suits people with limited time in the Stans but it’s very possible.
        So I had a 7 hour layover in Astana before returning home to London and I found this company here because I believed they would accommodate me they were very fast at responding and had a few options and I chose a sightseeing tour with lunch.
        My guide was Galym a nice young gent and he showed me the main sites around and told me about
        them as time was limited we couldn’t really enter them however we went inside this beautiful Hazarat mosque (I hope I got it right) but I did not take pictures from inside as I wasn’t sure, it was interesting to get inside the shopping centre and the indoor market reminded me of my childhood and the simple life the weather was about -10 and yet I really enjoyed seeing the city it’s very artistic, creative and full of interesting looking buildings.
        The meal was lovely and they didn’t frown at me for being vegetarian as it can be difficult in some cousines, they did the best they could.
        I would definitely return to Astana any day and I would use Astana tours again.
        Thank you very much for making this possible because I wouldn’t want to sit for 7 hours at the airport.

        My experience with Astana Tours Team was incredibly disappointing and fell far below expectations.

        Firstly, my guide was an inexperienced teenager who lacked knowledge about the city. Despite promising a tour of multiple landmarks, we only managed to visit three out of the many listed in the itinerary. Additionally, we drove 40 minutes to the Alzhir memorial only to find it closed, as it was a Monday. The guide then tried to seek assistance from management and the manager was unreachable, leaving us stranded and wasting time.

        Secondly, the high prices charged for the subpar service are unjustifiable. Paying $170 for a poorly executed city tour is unacceptable, especially considering the pay provided to guides. It's appalling to learn that guides receive a mere fraction of the hefty fees charged to customers, which likely contributes to their lack of motivation and engagement.

        Furthermore, the lack of transparency regarding transportation arrangements is concerning. Instead of providing dedicated vehicles, the company relies on guides to use their personal cars, further highlighting their disregard for customer satisfaction and safety.

        In conclusion, my experience with Astana Tours Team was marked by incompetence, unreasonably high prices, and dishonesty from management. I strongly advise against using their services and urge others to seek alternative tour operators for a more fulfilling and worthwhile experience in Astana.

        Dear sir or madam, we have double checked our tours history. Our company has not performed any tours on April 7 in Astana. Thus, there must be some confusion with actual tour provider. The prices you mentioned at the report differ from our actual prices (both Viator and web-site). It would be highly appreciated if you share the booking confirmation/ order or any other correspondence with the representative of tour operator via astanatours@gmail.com. You may also specify the names of the guide, if possible. Please be sure that we will thoroughly inspect if any violation of our policy has happened.
