We have believed that one of the most important components of travel is interaction with locals. On our tours we maximize the opportunity to meet genuine local people: to discover how they live, what they believe and what their values are. So our clients can learn about the nomadic culture in non- touristic way.
Our Nomad friendly Community based tours emphasize the contact with locals We arrange these tours through our local network which include over hundred nomad herder families and communities. Every community in the network owns special ethnic identity and lives in different natural areas.
We ensure the highest quality with minimal discomfort. It’s always our pleasure to see our clients’ happy face when we give our special gifts such as “Learning Mongolian” small phrasebook in English and German which has useful words, dialogues as well as Mongolian popular 2 songs, city map and handmade souvenir will be given depends on tours.
Safety and security is our top priority. We are on call 24/7 to handle any unforeseen situations and also provide a satellite mobile for our selected tours. We cooperate with SOS Medica Mongolia for safety and Bodi Daatgal for Company Liability Insurance. All vehicles used in our tours are insured, carefully checked and well prepared before departures. Safe and hygienic meals will be prepared by local and traditional style.
Our well trained guides always offer a safety course for most of our specific activities. Then we can ensure that all trips go along the safest way possible. We always take time to explain well the necessary safety tips while riding any animal.
We usually being responsible to provide up-to-date ‘pre departure’ information that includes our emergency contact for 24h, office location, working timetable and contact address, code of conduct, recommended pack list and checklist for our clients. During the booking process our responsible managers carefully check and handle bookings for all included services and special requests. And we confirm and reconfirm all bookings in advance of the tours due to applicable contracts and agreements.
We always invite our groups to take a tour of our office before sending them to countryside. During this visit, they get to see how our all-year staff is working, then we give them a presentation about Mongolia and its culture in order to avoid any cultural shock, we also provide a currency exchange bureau (our rate is fixed daily upon the global exchange rate), and give to all clients a useful phrasebook (Mongolian-English-German). Sometimes, upon request, we can also arrange a visit just before the departure and invite our customers to visit our fair trade shop, where all products are being made by local communities, therefore supporting our local coordinators.
We always provide to each of our customers a “Satisfaction Questionnaire” They can easily fill it up before their departure or send it to us upon their return to their country. We always read carefully all of our feedbacks. It is, for us, the best way of ensuring the quality of the given services, while continuing to improve them.
For our active and adventure tours, we provide good quality camping gears and equipment. Those include tents for single and twin share basis, self inflatable air mattress, wet protection sheet, tarpaulin sheet, foldable camp chairs and tables, dining tent, camp shower and shower tent, toilet tent, all cooking equipment and kitchen utensils including gas stoves and traditional style table-wares. Before any tour all equipment are well checked and prepared and our service team takes good care and maintains on the spot.
