Thank you Happy Camel for the most amazing adventure experience in Mongolia. 2 weeks hiking in The Altai Mts. (With not a single other tourist to be seen in 2 weeks) Everything was organised by email from Australia perfectly by Happy Camel in Mongolia. Thank you to our fabulous Guide/cook Tugi and horseman Arna and 2 camel men. Everyday was a new experience from glaciers, to snow capped mountains to steppes and herds upon herds of goats, yaks, horses, sheep. Walking in fields of every colour flower imaginable. You gave us the best memories. The second part of our trip was 2 weeks in and around the Gobi. Fabulous. Thank you to our driver Arboo and guide Ansie, who went out of their way to take us to non touristy places as well as the well know sites. So well organised, such an adventure every day. Highly recommend Happy Camel. Kerry

Dealt with Otgon. She was very informative and very helpful with all my questions, however the driver, Tugsuu was horrible. We chose the option of driver only and we would pay our own fuel. On day 3, 1 hour before we ended the tour, the driver filled up his entire tank instead of what was necessary to drive us around. In addition, he took us to locations when he wanted to and what he wanted to and not according to the prearranged itinerary. We wanted to drive with the windows down since it was not really hot outside. He was upset about that so he slowed down his speed to 30kmp.

My friend and I scheduled the 5-day Kharmiin Monastery tour with Happy Camel over our fall break, and we were both happy with the trip. There was a small snag at the start due to a change in the train schedule, but Happy Camel went above and beyond to ensure the trip didn't suffer. Bukhuu, our guide, spoke excellent English and made the tour feel more like a friend showing us around than an overly-structured canned tour. Bottled water was readily available as were snacks (thanks to Bukhuu's Mary Poppins-packed bag). The nomadic family we stayed with also had sheep, goats, and a very friendly dog that joined us for one of our rides with the camels. That evening we were even able to catch a glimpse of black tail antelope! At the monastery, tourists should be aware that this is an actual, functioning monastery and they are likely to see Mongolians gathering to pray and give offerings. Be mindful of when you take photos (though photos were definitely welcomed). Also, be sure to have a 5,000MNT bill on you. There is a machine inside that will give coins you can take as a souvenir :) As expats in UB we definitely look forward to booking more trips with Happy Camel!

We decided to travel to Mongolia during the Spring which is considered the off season. Most tour companies were not operating but Happy Camel were more than willing to accommodate us. From start to finish the service they provided was nothing short of impeccable. To start with we stupidly didn't research VISA's (which Brits need to visit Mongolia) having realised this the day before travelling we panickingly contacted them and against all odds they were able to sort us out with VISA's. We really didn't think we'd be able to get on the plane and they really moved mountains to help us. Before we set off they organised a bespoke itinerary based on our interests, travelling though the Gobi staying with nomadic families. We travelled with one driver and one tour guide, both of whom were professional, knowledgeable, and generally very impressive. You can see from the photos we visited some incredible sights and our tour guide Tsatsrsl provided us with indespensible local knowledge and some great stories. We had to face some seriously adverse weather conditions, sand storms and blizzards but our drivers experience meant they were able to adapt our itenarary and keep us safe! The Gobi can be a harsh and unforgiving place as we learnt, but we always felt totally safe with the support of the Happy Camel team. I have to say, even though we travelled during an unpopular time of year and for the most part we were the only tourists in sight, this was the trip of a lifetime. They accommodated our every request and blended comfort with authenticity seamlessly. The package they provided included everything except flights and made our journey painless and gave us the peace of mind to really enjoy everything and fully engage with the beautiful culture of Mongolia. I would recommend this company to anyone traveling to Mongolia. 10/10 flawless experience.

We were 5 ladies on an overland girls trip. We had a driver who did not speak English and this turned out to be great. We managed to communicate with him through "sign" language and through the Happy Camel office. This gave us a real authentic experience and we felt very safe since he was a very good and experienced driver. We took the Gobi route and it was an amazing experience with forever changing views and scenery. When you travel without a guide you will need to do a fair amount of research on your own before departing and get a local phone card with data so that you can find out information about the places you're going to and also about the accommodation. Most of the time the driver will take you to good "tourist camps" with a clean bed, toilet and good food. Otgon in the office was very good at communicating swiftly and answered any questions that we had regarding visas, packing and routes. I would recommend Happy Camel to other adventurous travellers who like to travel off the beaten track.
