Meeting Point: Astana InterHotel, in front of the main entrance (113, Baitursynov Str.)

Tour Description:

After meeting your guide at the meeting point no later than 10 minutes before the tour departure time, you will start the tour with a ride to the oldest of Almaty parks - Park of 28 Panfilov Guardsmen, where one of the most beautiful wooden buildings in the world - Zenkov Cathedral is located. In the park, you will also visit the Memorial of Glory and Eternal Flame, listen to the stories of the guide and admire the beauty of the Museum of Musical Instruments. A leisurely walk under the crowns of old trees will take about 40 minutes.

The next point of interest is a popular place for townspeople - the Green Bazaar, where it is impossible to refrain from shopping. It is a great chance to experience the atmosphere of the real eastern market, its colors, smells, and crowds.

There you can obtain famous oriental sweets, and dried fruits, and buy local products and souvenirs, but don't forget to bargain. In the market, they accept cash in tenge (local currency), so it would be good to have some with you or there is an exchange point just nearby to the market area.

After the bazaar, the tour will continue at the Kok-Tobe hill where the tallest TV tower in the world is located (if to count from the sea level), and where you will get by the picturesque winding mountain road on the park eco-cars.

In Kok-Tobe Park you can stroll along the winding paths of the park, admire the magnificent panorama of the city from the special observation deck, throw a coin in the "apple" fountain and visit the shop of national souvenirs. The tour ends with a short ride from the top of the hill to the center of the city by the famous Almaty cableway and then dropping you off at the original meeting point.
