3 of us took the tour together. It was an exciting experience. Our driver was really good and our tour guide was even better. Tunia, our English speaking tour guide, was wonderful. She was exceptionally knowledgeable about all aspects of Mongolian history. I will book this type of tour again.
If you are in Ulan Bator and have time do THIS TOUR!. My superb tour guide Eric really made it a fantastic experience. His knowledge of local history was great and I learned lots about Mongolian culture and customs. The national park was fantastic to see and the ice river we crossed amazing. I would highly recommend!
A big thanks to Eric for making it such a memorable day.
This was a great experience- my guide Tunya was very knowledgeable and we stopped at many places during the day to take photos. I could've spent much more time in the Gorkhi-Terelj Park if I had more time in Mongolia, but I really recommend this combination with the Genghis Khan statue if you are trying to see as much as you can in a day. I was also given a home-cooked meal in a ger and took a yak ride which was all very warm and welcoming despite it being the winter!
Eshtol aka Tonia, my guide, was absolutely wonderful - friendly, informed, perfect English, she made the tour fun. Only feedback is to be more realistic about the timing of the tour. it said 6 hours but actually took 8, and i had planned for 6 hpurs so could get back to Ulaanbataar for a meeting in time. Thanks, was a great experience
With only one day to see something on my own, I chose a tour to get out of Ulaanbataar and see the countryside. Our group was small 3 and congenial our guide Yogi was awesome. I am now enchanted with Mongolia and can't wait to go back.
The tour went beyond my expectations.I am a solo woman traveler and usually do not book tours. I did this because of the difficulty of traveling in the countryside alone. I had the most amazing guide, Yogi. He spoke excellent English, was friendly and knowledgable and incredibly fun to spend the day with. If you are lucky enough to get him be sure and ask him how he learned his English. I was surprised and amused when he told me. I asked lots of questions about Mongolian traditions, culture, history and contemporary society. Yogi was extremely knowledgeable and patiently answered them all. The country side is beautiful and the Chinggis Khan statue well worth a visit.
