    My friend and I had a brilliant holiday exploring Mongolia thanks to this team. We picked Gerelee and her company as they were very quick to respond to chat messages and tailored their tour to meet all our needs. The driver Mr Sukher and our guide Natso were great and went above and beyond to make our stay in mongolia memorable. Our return flight to UK was delayed 27hours. Natso messaged us regularly to make sure we were ok and liaised with Mr Sukher who was very flexible and picked us up and dropped us at the airport. Felt the team cared very much we enjoyed our time in Mongolia...which we did!

    I'm thrilled that I chose this company for my tour. The price was reasonable compared to other travel companies, but the service was exceptional. Our tour guide, who spoke flawless English, exceeded my expectations and took great care of my nearly-2-year-old son. He was very accommodating and flexible with the itinerary. Mongolia itself was incredible, and we even got to experience the Nomad lifestyle for one night. We definitely plan to return, and we would absolutely use this team again. My only suggestion is to confirm your booking a week or so before the tour, especially during the busy high season.
