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.

Then, after the park, you will get to the Medeo Gorge (1690 meters above sea level), well known due to the highest mountain skating rink in the world and the dam, protecting the city from dangerous mudflow.

A brief walk around with a chance to take your mountain-view pictures and breath the fresh pine-tree air, then drive back to the downtown. On the way, you will be told an interesting story about why Almaty is actually called «the Apple city».

The next destination of the tour is 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.
