Nur-Sultan - excursions and day trips

Previously known as Almaty, Nur-Sultan is the capital of Kazakhstan and is known as the north capital of the country. This city is also the economic and cultural center of the country. While in Nur-Sultan, you can take advantage of excursions and day trips to other cities in Kazakhstan. These are designed to offer travelers a chance to explore the major sights of the country.

The National Museum of History of Kazakhstan is a must-see on any tour. This museum is the place where you can learn more about the history of the country and the fate of its first president, Nur-Sultan Nazarbayev. The museum is located in the city of Astana.

Aside from the National Museum of History of Kazakhstan, there are other major sights to see in this city. You can also take a trip to the Korgalzhyn State Nature Reserve, which is considered to be one of the best birdwatching spots in the country.

Another important point on a Nur-Sultan trip is the Palace of Peace and Reconciliation, which was built in the late 1930s. The building is also home to the Kazakh Eli monument. The building is a good example of a neo-classical design.


The largest mall in Nur-Sultan is called Khan Shatyr. The Mall is situated in the heart of the city. This mall is the biggest in the country and features a number of souvenirs.

Other major attractions include the Bayterek Tower, the Nur-Astana Mosque, the State Theatre of Opera, and the ballet Astana Opera. During your time in Nur-Sultan, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a nice lunch in one of the local cafes. You will also have a chance to see the city's modern side, including the Constitution Square. You may also have a chance to visit the Medeo Skating Rink. This is an unusual site to see, but it is worth a visit.

The yurt, a traditional dwelling of nomads, is also a must-see on any tour to this part of the country. This yurt is situated in a gorge and is surrounded by forest. A driver guide will take you to this interesting site. You can also stop by the Rakhat chocolate factory, which is a popular destination in the city.


The most exciting thing about these Nur-Sultan excursions and day trips is that you will get to explore places you never thought of before. Having a private English speaking driver guide and driver will help you to maximize your trip and have a good time. It is also nice to know that your driver will be escorting you to and from your hotel so you don't have to worry about getting around.

As for the Nur-Sultan - excursions and day trips, you can also try the Kazakh Eli Square, which features the Khazret Sultan mosque, a monument to the first president of the republic of Kazakhstan.

Do I have to give my guide a tip?
No. It is not required and not expected of you to tip your guide. However, if one is presented, the guide might accept a gratuity. To guarantee that they are fairly compensated for their time, each guide sets the price of their tours. They do not depend on gratuities from tours as a result. If you want to support your guide, write a review of your tour.
What happens once I make a reservation?
After making the payment, you should wait at least 24 hours prior to the travel date for your Local Expert to confirm the requested date. If your reservation is approved, a confirmation email will be sent to your registered email address with the reservation's specifics and the Local Expert's direct contact information.
Is it possible to py in cash?
We have a policy that states that a reservation can only be verified after a legitimate payment has been made on our website. The process aids in preventing disputes that could occur while paying in cash in person. You can be confident that this money won't be given to the Local Expert right away. After your tour is over, Excursopedia will hold it and then provide it to the Local Guide.
How can I find out if a reservation has been confirmed?
When you finish making your online payment and the Local Guide accepts your booking request, your reservation will be finalized. You will receive a confirmation email. Don't worry; if the Local Guide does not confirm your booking after you provide your credit card information, the transaction will not be completed.
