Dear Mr. Tuvshinbat,
My daughter and I have safely returned home after an excellent time spent in Mongolia. Discover Mongolia Expeditions We have been impressed with the professionalism of your organization. Your website is excellent; the people we have dealt with have been of great help, on time and friendly. We will recommend your organization to anyone interested in visiting Mongolia. We were impressed with the professionalism and maturity of our 19 year old guide Lagshimi. She did an excellent job.
We also very much enjoyed Terelj National Park tour with Bayarjargal as a guide. She is an extremely competent and joyful person whom we appreciated very much. Both the Chinggis Khan Statue and the Live Museum are very interesting sites that we would not have wanted to miss. It was a very enjoyable and interesting day.

Thank you for our delightful short travel in Mongolia. Richard from UK. (Aug, 2010)

Hello
Just wanted to say thanks for organising an amazing trip for Jamie and myself in Mongolia. Your country is stunning, the people are friendly, and I just love the food.

Sorry we didn't get in touch on the way back, but we really had no time. I plan to be back next year though, and i will get in touch then. In the meantime, please give our details to the lemons and let me know when they're in Shanghai. Also, if you want to come too I would love to show you around the city.

Best regards
