"what it says on the tin" really. Highlights were staying in the first and last Ger camps, the horse riding, the Nadim festival and the excellent and very likeable leader.

Great tour leader: organised and enthusiastic.

Trainee tour leader not quite so good. Had to prize information out of him. Didn't appear quite so enthusiastic

Mongolia lacks a single 'must see' element. The key attraction is the terrain and the wide skies. These were well expressed in the tour.
The bus was ancient, but well suited to the cross-country travel involved. The engine, however, could do with an overhaul!
Laura, the tour leader was first class.

A fantastic tour, photographs don't do justice to the vast expanse of Mongolia, you have to see it!

Most of the holiday was spent living in gers rather than hotels, some of the beds and pillows weren't overly comfortable, (some were wonderful), but it was a good way to experience 'Mongolian life'. The first and last ger camps were so remote and quiet, out in the wilds, fantastic! Nothing but goats at the first and horses at the last which enabled horse riding on the steppes, great! Some gers had electricity for lighting and also wood burners if it got chilly in the evening.

Food was generally good, even for the vegetarians on the trip. Lot's of interesting things to try too, including mares milk (fresh and fermented) and various curd options.

Some long days of travelling, mostly off road, so a bit bumpy. Travelled in an old Russian bus which kept the group together and allowed interaction with the excellent tour leader (Laura) and local guide (Kenzo).

The highlight had to be attending the Nadaam festival. We visited a 'local' provincial one first to witness horse racing and wrestling and the opening ceremony of the national one which was lavish. Think the London Olympics opening ceremony but substitute the history of Mongolia?!

Attended a cultural evening consisting of music and throat singing - it has to be seen / heard, amazing!

Overall a fantastic trip, also helped by having a great bunch of travelling companions. It would have been nice if the flight times had allowed a half day (or more) in the capital to do some private site seeing, but you can't have everything?!

A recommended trip!

This was a fabulous trip. Well thought out and benefitted from having both an English and Mongolian guide. The Gers were not only attractive, but comfortable as well. Seeing the Nadaam Festival was a bonus. The families and staff at the camps were so kind and helpful, and the drivers fantastic. Would recommend this trip wholeheartedly
