Neighborhood Tours

Explore the architecture of Almaty's historic Golden Quarter, the Cossack cottages of Malaya Stanitsa or Uighur bakeries in Druzhba — Almaty's diverse districts are best seen on foot! 


Golden Quarter Tour

Discover Almaty’s historic old town on our most popular tour, exploring the neighborhood’s Modernist and Stalinist architecture, unusual monuments, and charming walking streets.

Lower Quarter Tour

You won't find this neighborhood name on a map, but this area in the "lower" part of Almaty contains the city's sightseeing highlights: Panfilov Park, the Green Bazaar, and the Central Mosque. 


Malaya Stanitsa Tour

Go back in time to the oldest neighborhood in Almaty, visiting the charming Kazan Cathedral with its esoteric “cave temple” before dropping in on an unusual market for decorative pigeons and admiring some Cossack cabins.  

Kompot Tour

Explore this historic neighborhood just over the river from central Almaty, meandering through a lost world of fruit trees, old cottages and shashlyk barbecue joints.
