Private -small group tour July:

Dear Oyunaa, We just returned home from our delightful trip to Mongolia. We thoroughly enjoyed it and appreciate your organizing it. Our guides: Dawaa in Ulaanbaatar, and Bossy in the Gobi were exceptional and competent. The drivers also were the best. We loved the Naadam Festival and the events and all the sights we saw. The country is beautiful with all the green grass, and the people are very nice. We had a wonderful time and you certainly may use us as a positive reference. Thanks again, Robert USA
