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. Jamie from UK. 2010 Aug

Dear Tuvshinbat,
Thank you very much for arranging such a great holiday in Mongolia, I thoroughly enjoyed myself and will surely return in the summer to catch some more fish and to see the country when it's green. Thanks for taking us out on the first friday - let me know when The Lemons are heading to Shanghai as i'd like to go to their gig.
If you're ever in Shanghai - get in touch.

All the best,
