Talk to a Local has been key for planning our trip to Kazakhstan. When you travel to such a huge and less-known country, Talk to a Local it’s truly your game changer Local experience at its best! Thank you TL!


I would highly recommend as it can be so handy and is a great way to understand more about the culture and have local tips. I will definitely use it again and again and also recommend to friends and family.


Shaza was great to talk to. After chatting with her, she followed up with me on my points of interest and helped me to come up with a loose plan for my 4 day stay in Istanbul. Highly recommended chatting with her if you get a chance.
