Kazakhstan Tours & Vacations

Kazakhstan is the world’s ninth biggest country, and it’s got a lot more going for it than oil and sheer size.

Thanks to abundant natural resources Kazakhstan is probably the best developed of the "stans". You’re more likely to get a good coffee on the leafy streets of Almaty than anywhere else on the Central Asian steppe, and the country’s new capital, Astana, is a 21st-century showcase of modern architecture and futuristic design. Not what you’d expect from a country where few travelers have yet to venture. Whatever your expectations are, leave them in the arrivals lounge. Kazakhstan defies them all.

Nur-Sultan (Astana) to Tashkent

Kate · Traveled June 2023
If you want to experience a completely different culture and terrain, consider this trip. The whole journey was a scintillating assault on our senses. We were welcomed in all three countries by local people wherever we were, astonished that we were from England, and how old we were! It is not a trip for anybody who does not enjoy being transported away from their normal life and being absorbed into another .

Nur-Sultan (Astana) to Tashkent

Paul · Traveled June 2023
A fantastic trip. The geography, history and culture of Central Asia was an unforgettable experience. The itinerary was busy but well worth it to experience so much. We now have many memories to enjoy. We have traveled a lot in the past decade, and this trip exceeded our expectations.

Nur-Sultan (Astana) to Tashkent

steve · Traveled May 2023
This trip was my second choice after the 5 Stans trip was cancelled. However I found it thrilling, full of opportunities to experience a vastly different culture, landscape, food, languages. From driving 500 miles off road in two days and camping by a salt lake under the full moon, to sleeping in comfortable beds in heated yurts at 10k feet by a lake with snow on the mountains. From the temp in the 40's (105+) in cities to a bit chilli ( not freezing) in the mountains but all good. Trains, planes, automobiles, metros and vans. The experiences you will have to process one by one for some time after. Packed days of activities or driving but nothing extreme. I was able to use my credit card most of the time for food etc but carried some pocket cash where I could not. We had 3 guides in total for the full month, having two would've been a bit nicer but it is what it is. Highly recommend. It is a good value for what the on sale cost was.
