    Appreciated the tour, and the insights provided to the city regarding historical and personal context! Great alternative to a live walking tour, which I understand is on offer at Destination Karakol as is awesome as well. It complemented well some of the other cool tour products I participated on in the city, ie foodie tour (tasty!).
