Our short tour of Almaty was organised efficiently. The vehicle was in good condition. The driver was polite. Dilyara , the guide, was friendly and knowledgeable. She conducted everything very well. The hotel - Novotel City Center - was centrally located with clean room and very good service. Thank you Anvar and Advantour for an excellent tour.
