Perfect location, cultural combination, incredible show – plus great service of Tour Mongolia was the highlight of this trip. Super! Thanks to our driver Shinee, you are the best!
We were really enjoyed Nomadic Naadam at the camp and searching takhi in the mountains was exciting. Our guide Zula is really professional and her English is perfect like us. Without our super driver Gana, we would not be moved. Therefore, we are deeply thankful for them and Tour Mongolia!
