Walking Almaty on Wheels

Walking Almaty has teamed up with Almaty Sightseeing Tours (AKA Hop Bus) to bring you weekly group tours of the city in their stylish convertible cruiser. 

Walking Almaty
on Wheels

A bus tour? This is supposed to be a walking tour company!


With walking tours, there's only so much ground you can cover on foot, and taking the bus lets us see even more of this beautiful city in a short time.


But more importantly, our convertible red bus gives you all the outdoor joy of being on a walking tour - you can smell the smells, hear the sounds, and feel the warm evening breezes. 


Our "Walking Almaty on Wheels" tour, a special collaboration between Walking Almaty founder Dennis Keen and our friends at Almaty Sightseeing Tours (AKA Hop Bus). We'll explore the city center by bus, while stopping for two short walking portions to see even more on foot. 

What You'll See

  • Abai Square

  • Abai Theater and the Golden Square

  • Tselinny Center and St. Nicholas Church

  • Republic Square

  • …and more!

What You'll Learn

  • What's up with Almaty's fake McDonalds?

  • How did Kazakhs and Americans team up to beat nuclear testing?

  • What luxury apartment complex is built on the site of a biological weapons complex?

  • What does St. Nicholas have to do with Santa Claus?

  • What are stalactites doing on a Soviet TV studio?
