About us

History

My name is Ardjan Langedijk and I owner of the small Dutch tour company “Kazachstan Specialist”. This includes the “brand names” Kazakhstan Tours, Central Asia Tours and Belarus Tours. From 1998-2001 I lived in Kazakhstan and learned the Russian language.
In 2006 I founded Kazakhstan Specialist and started Kazakhstan Tours. From 2013 I also offer travel programs in the other Central Asian countries (Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan).
Belarus was added as a travel destination in November 2015 and travel programs in Ukraine will follow on that website at the end of 2019.
Every year I visit Kazakhstan at least once to explore new routes and to maintain contacts.

Concept

We offer tailor-made tours in Kazakhstan, the itineraries shown on this website are examples of recommended routes. You will also find a small number of group tours with a special theme.

How does it work if you would like to travel with us or request a quote?
Normally you will have be in touch with me when you make a request by mail, application form or telephone. In the high season I work with free-lance specialists. These are people who have lived or lived in Kazakhstan, and who can help you with your request.
In addition, I have partner companies in Kazakhstan that will take care of the implementation of your trip.

Kazachstan Specialist is affiliated with the Dutch GGTO Guarantee Fund, and also with the (Dutch) VvKR branch organization, of which I am one of the founders.
