Thank you for our delightful short travel in Mongolia. Bayarlalaa, Christoph Klojda from USA. (Sep, 2011)

Dear Oyunaa,
Now that things have calmed down a little since returning home, I wanted to thank you for your patience and assistance in organizing my recent tour of Mongolia. It was an excellent experience, and an amazing country to spend some time in learning about the people and the culture. I would also like to pass on my thanks to both Lagshmi and Dovchin. They are both wonderful people, took too good care of me and helped make the experience extra special. Please pass my thanks onto them. While it may be a long time off, I look forward to visiting Mongolia again in the future. When that happens, I will definitely look for Discover Mongolia's assistance again. Please keep my information on hand if anyone is requesting referrals.

Thank you for our delightful short travel in Mongolia. Monika Misslbeck-Slote from Germany. (June, 2011)

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!

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
