Ok so bare with me here. I'd like to point out that from some of the reviews I've read make me think like the author had unrealistic expectations. Mongolia is a unique, wild, beautiful and harsh place. I'm sure with enough money anything is possible but just know that you're going to be "roughing it" with pretty much any tour you do and that isn't necessarily a bad thing if you have an open mind. Guest house: It's a basic place but not quiet or comfortable. We stayed in a cheap hotel on our return to Ulaanbaatar and found it much more comfortable especially since we had a private washroom. Tour: Where should I begin. We planned a 10-day tour of Central Mongolia and the Gobi. We later found out that this was ambitious and the pace didn’t leave a lot of time to enjoy our destinations. We were able to extend our tour by a day to spend time at Terkh Lake. Our drive and guide accommodated us which we appreciated but then they also seemed to smell the money and tried to get us to extend the tour by 1-3 days several times. Pretty much everything we saw and did was stunning and I fully recommend Central and Gobi if you only have two weeks or so. The bad: Some things are understandable. We slept in uncomfortable beds and sometimes the food was almost always noodles with lamb, carrots and potatoes. I can live with all that. Our big problem was the guide. If anyone reads this I would suggest you meet your guide before you start the tour. See if you are a good match and make a decision based on that. Our guide was awful, a younger girl from the city with little connection to her culture and couldn’t answer any of our questions. In nor particular order she… -showed no interest in making any kind of conversation -used her cell phone to post selfies she was taking on facebook but lied about not having reception when I wanted to search a way to fix my camera that broke on the 2nd day -fought with the driver in front of us then spent days in silence even crying at one point -never gave us any information unless we asked and even then, the most common answer was “maybe” -left us alone several times on cliffs, hikes, etc -told my partner to “eat around it” when she was served meat after asking for vegetarian SEVERAL times -when we asked about getting a sim card she said it was impossible but I managed on my own to get a sim card with data for under $1 -just a lot of other misinformation, laziness and lies The good: Our driver was amazing and saved the entire tour. Despite not speaking English he did his best to explain things. He made sure to invite us into the family Gers and we even got the chance to be involved in a wedding celebration. Most of the special moments on the trip wouldn’t have happened without his initiative.

Let us first start out by saying that we LOVE Mongolia - a country that definitely deserves to be explored. We are so happy we found Khongor Guest House which is now celebrating its 20 Year Anniversary. Congratulations on providing travellers with an insight into your beautiful country. You are true ambassadors and should be very proud. From day one, Khongor Guest House felt like home. Bulga picked us up at the airport and took very good care of us during our entire stay. He is such a great guy and goes above and beyond to make his guests happy! His English is excellent and he helped us plan the perfect 15-day tour of the Gobi, central and northern Mongolia. From start to finish, our tour scores a perfect 10!!! We loved every minute. Our guide, Bayasaa (Joy) and our driver, Dorjoo, were simply amazing. A perfect, professional team, they looked after us like we were family and proudly showed us their beautiful country. By the end of the tour, we had become great friends. Khongor is very lucky to have them both on their team. We also took a 2-day trip to Gorkhi-Terelj National Park. We hired a great driver named Enkhbayar through Khongor to take us there and back, stopping at the Genghis (Chinggis) Khaan Statue on the way back to Ulaanbaatar. Terelj is a stunning place and the ger camp was perfectly situated to explore the area. In total, we ended up staying at Khongor for 2 weeks. We loved this guest house (and the convenience of having a kitchen to prepare some meals was an added bonus). The guest house is kept very clean, the location is excellent - very convenient and central - within walking distance of almost all of the main sites, and the fabulous staff keeps it running perfectly. Would we come back to Mongolia, stay at Khongor and book another tour with them? Without a doubt! We still have the Eastern and Western parts of the country to explore. :) Thank you to the entire team at Khongor for making our experience in Mongolia such a memorable one. We will never forget your kindness.

I hooked into a 6 day Gobi tour with Khongor last minute. I purposely went to the office to ask some specific questions given other reviews that had been posted here. My main one was the quality, age, experience the guide that four of us would be with for the next 6 days. I was told it would be a female around 30yrs old who was one of their best guides and who spoke great English. I signed up and the next day a 23yr old male + driver were the ones who showed up at my hotel. They were definitely great guys & the van was always clean but the guides English wasn’t strong and the driver didn’t speak any (nor would I have expected him to). The issue I was trying to avoid was an average tour which was unfortunately what we had: Guide: * A 23yr old MALE cooking the 5 of us dinner for 5 nights, enough said * It was useless asking any questions really * No daily debris or wardrobe attire suggestions for certain activities (had to ask every time) * We were 45min late to start the sand dune climb and missed the sunset as a result Driver: * Drove way too fast driving in the Gobi/ dirt roads. Not sure if the rush was to get to the Ger or the Outhouse? * As a result of the speed, we got a flat tire day 1 morning and which he fixed using our only spare (not sure why we only had one spare). After he participated in the lunch at the restaurant he then noticed the tire was having issues - so we had to wait another hour for him to fix that (at least he got his lunch) * Day 2 morning, I suggested to the driver/ guide that our luggage be covered so it wasn’t filled with dirt that seeps in (not sure why I had to suggest this) * After breakfast on morning 3, five minutes into a 6hr drive we immediately pull over for gas (at least he has his breakfast) Khongor in General: * Not sure why the families at the Gers aren’t cooking the meals (with guide/ driver assistance) * Mixing in a picnic lunch in a nice location over the tiny average at best restaurants would be nice * We waited an hour to ride the horses. Not sure why Khonger can’t set up a reservation or take guests to a private location - was beautiful but the wait was unorganized and painful * Public bathroom/ shower day should be logistically coordinated for the end of day versus within the first hour of a 8hr drive * The tour in general was not efficient Ie. groceries stop, bathroom stop, atm stop, gas stop all within 1km. Instead of smoking with his buddies, the driver could have gased up. And the guide could have told everyone this is a grocery/ bathroom stop instead of announcing the bathroom on the back end * The office said they would message me about the North tour and they never did (maybe they sensed this review?) Considering Khongor has been around for 20yrs, is think they can do better.

Khongor is centrally located and as such, is perfect for those needing some last-minute gifts, souvenirs or groceries. The huge State store is right down the street and eateries abound. The one thing that I appreciated most was that it was largely quiet. As a solo traveller, I am increasingly distressed by the lack of facilities that aren't part of a bar, a party down spot or right over a busy corner. I was able to sleep hard and well in preparation for a long week in the Gobi. I'm glad I nailed a spot with them on the return, as I gave the Lotus Guesthouse a try, That was a massive mistake. While they are lovely people, my outfit had paid for two nights, but i lasted two hours. My window was right above a Circle K store and it was so noisy I couldn't hear myself think. I had to move elsewhere, not to Khongor, but I will be back. I already had all my trips scheduled, and the rest of the time I had to take care of a great many details and interviews. Otherwise I'd have hired them for an outing. Very patient and helpful staff, and I met quite a few lovely people in the breakfast room. My only complaint: dry white bread, margarine and jam do not an adequate breakfast make. Bring your own. The kitchen is limited but serviceable.

The Guest house is located on one of the main avenues of UB ( Peace avenue ) at approx 500 m of the Sukhbaatar square (which represents the main center of the town ) For the low prices asked for accommodation very clean rooms. Helpful stuff on the reception desk which is also the office where the tours are set. Unfortunately due to my limited available time to travel around I made no tour with them but from the other tourists I interacted were showing satisfaction of what they got using Khongor organised tours.
