review 30 May 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Camping by the Salt Lake

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Lots of walking involved so need to take walking poles for the uneven terrain and loose shale. The nights are cold in the desert so good idea to take your own sleeping bag, as the ones provided are a little thin

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Local guides and drivers used, small plastic bottles used for water and no way to recycle them.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Very good although having less able people in the group made it more difficult for the guide. Good itinerary with lots of different sceneries - very varied package.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

I have never said this before, but the entire trip was both memorable and exciting! I felt I experienced the real Kazakhstan - from the people to the landscape to the culture.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared by having good walking shoes and be open to trying a wide array of foods that we don't normally have in Western culture.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Absolutely!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

On a scale of 1 - 10, this was 1000!
