          Revealing the secrets of Mongolia
          Well, this was one unforgettable experience...! Lucky me, I joined a "touring seminar" to Mondolia of the Department of Asian Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The course was called "Following the footsteps of Chinggis Khan", and was aimed at studying the history (past and present), culture, and nature of Mongolia. The company included an archaeologist, historians, students, and external guests. Altogether - 12 vehicles, 35 people + 12 drivers, roaming the Mongolian steppe for 16 days (minus 3 days in Ulaanbaatar). Quite a challenging experience for the organizers... But it was P E R F E C T! The mix of experiences was amazing: from visiting ger dwellers to finding hidden ancient scripts inscribed on rocks, from arranged visits to museums and monuments to speaking with leading international archaeologists in active sites they are currently digging, from enjoying picnic lunches in Nature to hiking uphill, jumping from rock to rock in a flowing river, from stopping for biological relieves every so often to stopping to spot vultures or for crossing barefoot a bridge stretching over a flowing river embedded in a beautiful scene - just because many of us felt it would be fun. We were all amazed at the new things we experienced and learned every single day, to the very last day of this trip. The organization was flawless. Really - flawless. So rich in content yet sensitive to the needs of the participants. And although we had been guided by leading academicians, it wouldn't have been the same without the guidance of Ron (one of Mongolian Ways directors, who led the convoy) and the energy, good spirit, and personal perspective of Duulguun, our guide. She was the soul of this trip. Where do you find organizers and guides who start eating only after ensuring all the group's vegetarians have gotten their dinner (if not to say, joining the waiters in serving the dishes)? Who would frequently check on the status of those with upset stomachs until they get better? Who would go wake the resort owners up at night to ensure all the gers are heated up? Or drivers that play football with the group members after a tiring day of driving, or deliver an improvised concert with traditional Mongolian instruments and wonderful voices? The excellent team of Mongolian Ways has delivered a unique, multicultural, and memorable experience, which supersedes any organized trip I've ever been to. If you plan a trip to Mongolia, I recommend them in the highest terms

          Trip in Mongolia
          Mongolian ways gave us an experience that was beyond what i ever could expect. This company is a blend of great professionals and incredibly lovely people. I cant imagine my Mongolian experience without each one of them! I recommend them each one who wants to get the most from his next adventure.

          Way to go, Mongolian Ways!
          A tour which definitely exceeded my expectations on all fronts (transport, accommodation, food and company) since I was very much prepared to "rough it" in the countryside after reading the comprehensible travel guide which Ron provided (this is a must-read by the way)! We couldn't have asked for a better team (shout-out to guide Enhuush and driver Tsoomoo) to take us on our Mongolian adventure. Highly recommend to go with Mongolian Ways if you decide to visit this beautiful country which has so much to offer.

          The amazing Mongolian experience
          We had a great 11 days tour in the beautiful landscape of Mongolia, experiencing the calm nature, the endless herds, the warm people with great hospitality, the Gera camps and the beautiful nature. With the best driver and private guide that were the nicest people, made sure we get familiar with the Mongolians nomads lifestyle and took great care of us.

          Central Mongolia trip
          We went on an intimate trip - 5 friends from Israel (2 had to stay in Israel) to Central Mongolia, Organized by Mongolian Ways.We traveled with the excellent Mongolian guide Amina, Bimba the driver who brought his jeep, and last but not least Ron Oren, the CEO of Mongolian Ways and theorganizer of the trip, who volunteered to bring his personal jeep and drive, thereby significantly upgrading the trip. The trip included two days in Ulaanbaatar (at the beginning and at the end) and the rest in central Mongolia, in nature sites such as the wild horse reserve, dining with nomads and religious and cultural sites in Harkhorin and others. We also spent some wonderful time during the Nadam festival that was celebrated during our stay. The trip can be described in two words - colorful and embracing. The experience that is common to all events is the incredible color of the people and nature. The Mongolians are charming, smiling and great hosts, as well as the vast green spaces with the colorful herds of sheep, camels, horses and yaks. The trip was basically a photography trip and indeed produced spectacular photographs of people, scenery, animals and exciting events such as a horse race on the Nadam holiday, when the riders are children. The organization was perfect. The staff was attentive to every wish and need. We knew that there would be no attached toilets in the gers on some days and we turned the limitationsituation into an eaqusite experience. In short - it is highly recommended to travel in Mongolia with Ron and his team. The experience is actually two experiences: Mongolia and a guided tour and organization that you don't meet often.

          Once in a Lifetime Experience
          Everything just worked out on this tour i did in nov 2019. Actually mongolian ways was one of the few actually offering during this offseason time of the year. Both guide and driver have proofen excellent organizational, driving, translating skills and made everytjing possible. One night for example was really cold so they spontanipusly organized a warmer place for the next day. A lot was organized according to the situation which gave maximum flexibility. We visited places which are not usually on the tourists list as for example a coal mine. I was never pressured to hurry up or and still everything worked out because the dtiver was so well connected with the locals. And of course... the sights I saw where amazing.

          Excellent trip, excellent company
          My girlfriend and I came to Mongolia for 4 days and used Mongolian Ways following a recommendation. Our trip was only for a short period of time but Tsoggy helped us tailor our itinerary to make the most of what we wanted to do and see in such a short (cold!) time. We were met by Sarul, our guide, who was an excellent bank of knowledge and really made sure that we were comfortable and happy throughout the trip. We were able to see and experience so much in such a short period (without it seeming tiresome), which is testament to Tsoggy and the rest of the team organising excellent activities and making sure everything goes to plan. We had an amazing time and would highly recommend for anyone going to Mongolia for even a quick visit. We will definitely be back to explore more and cant wait to travel with you again. Thanks for everything!

          Glorious Gobi
          I travelled to Mongolia this summer and the trip totally exceeded my expectations 😊 Mongolian Ways was flawless from start to finish. Tsoggy organised my Mysteries of the Gobi Desert trip and he was happy to go out of his way to ensure everything was just right. My tour guide, Uyanga and my driver, Nyamka were outstanding. Uyanga was super organised and we had a great time climbing to the top of Khongoriin Els. Nyamka had a great sense of humour and always went that extra mile. I was in awe of the abundance of unique landscapes in the Gobi Desert. Throughout my trip, the attention to detail and making the little things count was top-class. An amazing holiday! I hope to go back, explore more of this exquisite country and I would definitely book with Mongolian Ways again.

          jewels of mongolia - 13 days
          We were well looked after by our guide Tsoggy and driver Ambra and always felt safe. Our questions were always answered and our needs were well met. The travelling was well organised and we enjoyed the company of our two Mongolians as there was just the three of us travelling . July was a good time to travel - shorts and t shirts. I learned a lot about Mongolia so am glad I went. Thought the Genghis Khan statue was impressive and enjoyed all the livestock our in the steppes.

          Unforgettable Experience
          I had the best fortune to have been paired with Аминаа as my guide and translator. It was just the two of us and I could not have asked for a more kind, caring and thoughtful person to share my experience in Mongolia with. We traveled around the capital in the East to the mountains in the West on the borders of Russia. From learning how to train eagles to hunt, attending festivals, dancing to Mongolian music and even meeting young entrepreneurs who are changing the world's perspective of the country, it was an incredible experience and I am grateful to say I have a friend for life.

        My girlfriend and I booked a trip with Mongolian Ways as they were the most flexible and professional ones of the agencies I contacted. Our very specific location requests were incorporated in the itinerary of our trip. We traveled with a driver and a guide in one car by ourselves but I heard that you can also travel with them in larger groups (this probably saves a bit of money as well). We traveled from Ulaanbaatar to the Gobi Desert, central Mongolia and ended the trip in the lake region in the north near the Russian border (close to Lake Baikal). We thoroughly enjoyed the amazing vast space of Mongolia, the nature, the cultural sites, but specifically the chance to interact with local families. We spent time with three families being involved in food preparation and cooking with them and afterwards sharing a meal. In one case we even were involved in milking the horses and yaks as well as fermenting the milk (obviously voluntarily, not a must). For us this was one of the highlights of the trip. The car was very comfortable (a Lexus off-road SUV with air-conditioning), the driver was very good in the rough terrain and our guide who spoke very good English was knowledgeable and kind and always willing to address our specific requests. I can highly recommend Mongolian Ways as they delivered what they promised, were super professional, and very flexible which was important for us.
