Thank you for our delightful short travel in Mongolia. Most sincerely, Lisa Pearl from USA. 2011 Sep

Dear Oyunaa,
We had a lovely tour with Dawa and Nanida. We enjoyed every minute of their company. Dawa was very knowledgeable and gave us a meaningful appreciation for Mongolian history, culture, and land. I wonder if you could pass along this email to her because I never got to thank her in person. I got rushed into our hotel to confirm our reservation.

Thank you for our delightful short travel in Mongolia. Anna and Tomislav from Sweden 2010 Oct

Dear Tuvshinbat,
We are working a lot since we came back from Mongolia, so we don't have time even to see all the amazing photos we made there. Anyway we would like to thank you one more time for everything you did for us, and for wonderful time you helped us to have in you're country. It was unique experience, Mongolia is a beautiful place, one of the best holidays we had so far, and we would definitely like to visit it again and see and learn more. We are a big commercial for you, and i hope more people will come and share our experience.
And we would also like to express our gratitude for the two lovely people we meet at the station, and whiteout whom we will be probably lost in the mountain or at the black market. :) Ms. Boloroo and you're friend Mr. Sugar are excellent guides and friends.
I hope we will be back and next time we'll meet you as well, and we wish you all the best.

Best regards,
