I had gone for this tour on 3-Nov-2019. The trip starts at 9:00 AM . This was a amazing trip , very well organized. Our Tour guide Dilyara was very informative. She provided us many information about Kazakhstan , their culture , history etc . on the way to the trip. while going we stopped at a village market which was having good barbecue shop ( for non- vegetarian) , and many fruits shops for Vegetarian like me . After snacks we went to Charyn canyon , which was very beautiful. We walked approx 2 kms in the canyon till we reached the river. After that we came back by a Soviet Era Taxi to the start point , which was again a wonderful experience.After that we went to 2-3 view points to see the canyon. While returning back we stopped in the same place were we had stopped in the morning and had lunch there. Returned back to Almaty at around 5:00 PM. Overall it was wonderful experience and i highly recommend. Will go with ACT to some other trip on mine next visit to Kazakhstan.

We were picked up in time and brought to a meeting point, where in total we ended up being a group of 7 people. We had a nice and big car and our guide was very charming and overall caring.
The drive to the Canyon is around 3 hours and can be quite bumpy at the end.
At the Canyon itself you walk about 1 hour down to the river and you have plenty of opportunities and time to take as much pictures as you want.
The Canyon iself very beautiful and it is overall very stunning.
At the river we took a rest and ate a snack and after that we hiked back up. (It is not very steep and you can do it in sneakers. (Although be aware that the ground is gravel, so if you wanna be save, I'd recommend hiking boots)
After the hiking our guide surprised us with a wonderful picture opportunity and a little treat.
An unexpected highlight turned out to be the lunch we got on our way back, which was a traditional noodle dish with meet and vegetables. There was also a vegetarian option. It was very tasty and he haven't had heard of it before.

All in all we had a great time and it was a wonderful experience. Our guide, who spoke perfect English, took wonderful care of us and told us a lot about Kazakhstan.

Из пожеланий: хотелось бы, чтобы во время экскурсии звучала национальная музыка. Неважно где, там где мы кушали или на обратном пути в автобусе. Чтобы на потом у нас остались звуковые ассоциации с Казахстаном. И еще есть пожелание, чтобы на столе стояли таблички с надписями названиями блюд национальных, которые мы не знаем. Просто зрительно это легче запоминается. Благодаря экскурсии мы выросли культурно и интеллектуально. Спасибо!

Очень порадовал автобус: во-первых идеально комфортные кресла, во-вторых. Наличие пакетов для мусора в салоне. В-третьих, идеально чистые стекла, настолько кристальные, что у нас во время движения получились фото и видео высокого качества
Наш гид Оксана рассказала нам много интересных фактов, своим оптимизмом и положительной энергией зарядила настолько, что мы смогли пешком дойти не только до цели нашего путешествия - реки, но и пешком сами дошли обратно! Я не верила в свои силы, но я смогла это сделать. Отдельное ей спасибо за совет - сходить на ярмарку ремесел. Обязательно пойдем, это очень интересно.
Еще Оксана любезно согласилась нас сфотографировать и по электронке выслать нам фото. И за это ей отдельное спасибо.

The traditional lunch we had at a restaurant on the way was delicious

I used these guys to go to Big Almaty Lake, and Charyn Canyon. Both trips were really well organised, I met two different tour guides both were very friendly and informative. As a single female traveller these two tours really made my experience in Almaty a great one. The scenery on both days was incredibly stunning. Highly recommend.
