"Dear Oyunaa,
Thank you so much for upgrading my hotel. The room was very comfortable. Miss Hishi and the driver, Mr. Damdin, were very good companions and I learned a lot from Miss Hishi. Also, the trip to the South Gobi was a wonderful experience. It was very well organized. Thanks a lot. I will definitely recommend your travel agency!"

"Hello Oyunaa
The tour was wonderful. Everything worked out fine and just as planned. I will be happy to recommend Discover Mongolia and we plan to come back again next year! My only suggestion is that we should have had a four wheel drive vehicle for Elsen Tasarhai. We had a little problem in the sand and could not drive everyplace. The guides were great, especially Hishi in UlaanBataar, and the drivers were very good."
