A Central Asia Expert: Since first coming to Central Asia ten years ago, Dennis has traveled and lived throughout the region, researched traditional culture on a Fulbright Scholarship and even received an MA in Eurasian Studies at Stanford University. Every walk is like a fascinating lesson – don’t be afraid to raise your hand!
A Polyglot: If you’ve ever been with a guide who can’t quite find the words to answer your questions, you’ll understand what a convenience it is to walk with a native English speaker (Dennis is from California, dude!). On top of that, he speaks fluent Russian and Kazakh. Pepper the locals with all the questions you’ve got. Your tour guide’s an interpreter, too.
A Ton of Fun: Some people want a list of facts and dates, delivered in monotone – Dennis is happy to bore you to death. But he’s also prepared to give you an unforgettable experience, with a sunny attitude that is sometimes rare in Almaty and an enthusiasm for the city that’s infectious.
