Organization of tourist trips by our company

We're a team of people who are into bicycles. We organize exciting tourist trips and bicycle tours to popular places in Almaty region and other regions of Kazakhstan, as well as in foreign countries.

The idea of our business appeared in the early 2000s. At that time, we began to study popular cycling routes in Kazakhstan and came up with new ones. We drove most of these routes and tested them, as they say, "on our own skin". That's when our passion for travel, discovery and freedom began!

Some members of our team were engaged in cycling at a professional level under the leadership of Vladimir Saveliev.

After a while, when we had already accumulated sufficient knowledge and skills, our hobby and passion grew into the project "VELOTOUR-ASIA". We got the necessary equipment, purchased transport, equipped it with bicycle carriers and started to gather companies of friends and acquaintances who share our interests.

Now our team includes people with skills that are in demand on the road: professional drivers and guides, a cyclist, a doctor and even a field chef!
