TRIP REVIEWS (1)

Frederik and Anne White

Thank you, Arara for organizing our holidays in beautiful Kazakhstan. This authentic country has so much to offer. We loved each and every city and region we visited. The tours started every day at 10 am. We had a nice breakfast at hotel; the staff was very welcoming and friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable and nicely furnished. Our guide Nuria was really in love with her country. We learnt so much from her about the history and culture of Kazakhstan. The timing was also quite well organized, as we hate spending too much time on the roads.

Hope to visit other countries of this historical region one day.
