Tour itinerary:

Meet your guide at the hotel entrance at 10 am to kick off your gastronomic tour in Almaty. We'll start at the Green Bazaar, an iconic market where you'll sample oriental sweets, dairy products, and fruits. It's the oldest market in the city and remains a vibrant hub in Kazakhstan's southern capital.

Next, we'll visit the Rakhat candy factory store, famous for its sweets and chocolate across Kazakhstan and neighboring countries. Its chocolate sets are a favorite souvenir among tourists.

After indulging in chocolate, we'll take a leisurely hour-long stroll through the city center. You'll see some of Almaty's picturesque spots and work up an appetite just in time for lunch.

Lunch is at "Qaimaq" restaurant (cost not included in the tour). You're free to choose from the menu, but we suggest trying traditional Kazakh dishes like Beshbarmak, Kuirdak, and Baursaki. Over lunch, you'll get a taste of Kazakhstan's culinary history and cooking traditions.

Our tour concludes at the "Arba Wine" store, where you'll enjoy a tasting of Kazakh wines. The "Arba Wine" winery, with its 40 years of history, benefits from the unique climate of its mountainous vineyard region, rich in sunlight and water. You'll sample four types of white and four types of red wines, ending our gastronomic tour in Almaty on a delightful note.
