We really enjoyed the tour to Darija.
It was great that we were so flexible with the timing and that we could choose where and when to start. It was also very convenient that we were picked up at home. Our guide was already there when we went downstairs and the driver came a few minutes later.
It was also good that we could say where we wanted to go and what we wanted to see. Our guide explained about the historical background and that there was a memorial from the war on the way that we could visit. We stopped there and just walk around as long as we wanted.
We also visited the remains of the village and the gravesite from the Bronze Age where we discussed what to do next. Here, it was good that we could say what we would like to do. However, it would have been great if there were some tours we could choose from or different places we could go to with information how long it would take to walk there.
Another suggestion would be to go to a café around lunch or to plan such a stop after the tour. It would be good to relax and to use the opportunity to talk to the guide and get some information about Kazakhstan and Karaganda.
All in all, it was a good tour and we really enjoyed the day. Nomadic Travel Kazakhstan did a great job!

The Ulytau mountains always attracted the attention of nomads. Here was situated the headquarters of the oldest son of Genghis-khan – Zhoshy (Juchi), who became ancestor of most of the Kazakh rulers. Moreover, here graphic evidence of historical events, connected with the name of Tamerlane the Great, can also be found. It’s remarkable, that exactly […]
