Fantastic Day Tour with great guide
Dec 2019 • Family
We did a day tour yesterday and it was fantastic! We visited Terelj National Park, turtle rock, a monastery with chanting monks, went to a great lookout over the city, the Ghengus Khan Statue and museum and has a tasty lunch with a nomadic family in their ger, complete with an ox drawn carriage ride across the snow. It was a really cold day and snowing in the morning, but the minivan was warm inside and the driver was very good and safe. Our guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and had perfect english. Everything went to plan and our 12 and 14 year old children really enjoyed the day as much as we did! We would highly recommend this day tour.

Day tour on a cold winter day
Nov 2019
The Rara Avis team picked us up from our hotel and we started our day tour with temps at -27c. Bitterly cold. we visited the Gandantegchinlen Monastery and looked in on the young Buddhists who were going through their morning recitals. Then we departed for the Chinngis Khan memorial. Stunning views with the cold temps bringing very clear skies. From there we left for the Gorkhi-Tereij park. We stopped for lunch in a local Ger. Our host meet us with a cart drawn by an ox and took us to his Ger, crossing over the frozen river on the way. Lunch was excellent and eating in a distinctly local environment was a pleasure. Our driver leant my son his heavy coat to go over the one he already had on as the temperatures continued to fall. From there we took a drive through the park and visited the Turtle rock. Then back to the city where our guide took us to a couple of shops that we'd asked for. The team then dropped us off at our hotel.

All in all an excellent day. The Rara Avis team were excellent, our guide had very good English and gave us a running commentary on the history of Mongolia.

I'd fully recommend this trip to anyone. Families would especially benefit from taking a tour with Rara.

Tour was worth it for both Cultural reasons and logistical reasons
Oct 2019
The tour was very good for the reasons you would expect:
Transportation to important and interesting sites
The guide provide interesting additional information of the area
The "normal day" lunch in a Ger (Yurt) was fun and the food good.
You guide can help you with simple things (that maybe are so simple like buying a hand made hat at a roadside stop and then finding an ATM that will accept your card.
Other helpful shopping hints (Cashmere is VERY affordable in Mongolia)
But the most important reason for the tour is a plus/minus thing:
Unfortunately, the traffic in Ulaanbaatar is, simply put, terrible. Almost unbearable traffic jams and difficult driving.
The plus is having a skilled local driver is a big BIG plus to the tour.

Private tour not really private
The tour was great the guide and the driver were perfect, we appreciated all what was done during this tour, the visit of Genghis Kahn statue, the Terelj National Park with a local lunch in a Yurt and the visit of the Turtle Rock and the Aryapala temple. All was perfectly organized and we had a lot of time to appreciate the different activities but we had ordered a private tour for two clicking on “Private & Custom Tours” and a third person participated to the tour (at least she was very nice). We paid more than 240 USD for this tour for two while we should have paid less than 160 USD for a tour with 3 people. I would like to understand from TripAdvisor and from the tour organiser why this has happened?

Well worth it
I'd highly reccomend a tour with Rara Avis. Our guide Yogi was very knowledgable and a genuienly friendly person. We visited the Gengis Khan statue, had traditional Mongolian Food in a Ger and travelled through some beautiful countryside.

I really learnt a lot about Mongolian culture and history and some of things I was told were repeated by other Mongolians so the knowledge is definitely factual. The trip lasted the whole day and is a great way to see the amazing Mongolian countryside. If I came back to Mongolia in the future I would definitely consider one of Rara Avis' longer tours.

Active, historical day tour - good for all ages
Jul 2018 • Family
We were picked up early by the bus and our guide (FYI there isn't confirmation, you just trust they will come per the booking lol). Gunj was our guide - he was very funny and informative with awesome English. We went to the Buddhist temple which was a surreal experience, then the Soviet statue with a great overlook of the city. Next we went to the Chinggis Khan status & museum. The statue is so photogenic, and the museum is very informative; dioramas really bring the Mongol empire to life. Next, we went to Gorkhi-Terelj, which takes 1+ hrs and is beautiful. Lunch was served in a ger complete with an ox taxi to the ger campground! Lastly, we saw Turtle Rock before heading home.

Overall a great mix of photo opportunities, seeing the landscape, and getting some historical background with Gunj. Would recommend this as a day activity while you're in Ulaanbaatar!

Good trip out
Oct 2018 • Friends
This was a great day out and Bill answered all our questions. The statue was very impressive and there was a local there with Eagles which gave you the chance to hold and take pictures. Lunch was made by a local family which we had in a ger in a very scenic area, we stopped at turtle rock for photos. It was a very nice trip, but it did finish 2 hours earlier than stated.
