It was a dream-come-true trip for us. We have been travelling to many countries over the past 16 years. Trip to Mongolia was delayed every single time we planed for vacation due to lack of information and communication issues. We were very happy with the inquiry and booking process with View Mongolia. All the requests and questions were promptly responded and fulfilled. We took the Discover Gobi tour plus three extra days for Khorgo Therkhiin Tsagaan National Park with nomad family stay.

Great thanks to our lovely tour guide and great driver, Bulgamaa and Munkhbat. They were the main factor for our trip to be so memorable and so much fun. We felt more like one family at the end of our tour. Our kid had a great time and couldn't stop talking about them both.

We had such great time appreciating miles and miles of Mongolia's untouched nature and culture; so pure and so beautiful. Enjoying the gorgeous sand dunes on camel, horse riding on the bed of wild flowers in the gorgeous valley of Khorgo Therkhiin Tsagaan national park, being spoiled by the hospitality of nomad family home stay, being woke up by the family yaks at nights, or even trying to figure out how to keep the fire for heating stove in our ger ... were some of the best travel experiences we ever had.

My wife and I did a week long tour with View Mongolia and the views were indeed quite remarkable! For our tour we went South into the Gobi Region and visited Karakorum as well. Our pleasant experience began before our arrival with Boggie and her attentive customer service. Boggie was prompt to reply to our initial email as well as all our our subsequent ones and really helped us tailor a great custom itinerary. Arriving on the Trans-Siberian they also made sure we were picked up and dropped off from the train station so we didn't need to worry about a thing.

The guide Soni and driver Danzka were really warm and kind people. We enjoyed laid back tour in which they explained a lot but weren't trying to fill the time. Guide and driver isn't even an accurate description of all they did for us. At times they were chefs and even a mechanic when the right suspension of the car was broken by a boulder!

The first night's hotel was subpar with a broken shower and no hot water, but thankfully after that things got better and the ger stays were so memorable and are highly recommended. They always made sure there was adequate water (and coffee!) and let us dictate the pace and schedule as much as we wanted.

We loved our time there and the staff of View Mongolia really made it memorable!

My friends and I had a fantastic three-day trip with View Mongolia this winter. The guide and driver they supplied were friendly, warm, and knowledgeable, and the trip itself was very enjoyable and professionally done. We really enjoyed seeing the giant Gengis Khaan statue museum, hiking in Terlej, visiting a Buddhist meditation center, meeting a local family, and hiking into Hutsain national park to find elk, yaks, and wild horses. The ger camps they picked out where nice as well. I would very much recommend this company.

We sent out requests to several different Mongolian tour operators. Boggie from View Mongolia was the only one who was very prompt in responding thoroughly instead of palming off some standard itinerary. We had specific requirements in terms of places to visit and dietary restrictions. She worked through numerous iterations as we fine-tuned the itinerary over a couple of weeks.
Just to give you an idea, the trip started with us being picked up from ULN airport and driven straight to the Genghis Khan Statue. This road goes to the south of the city. To save us time, Boggie personally bought Indian food from a restaurant and met us where we would otherwise have had to take a detour into the city.
I have been to over 60 countries and my 15 year and 7 year old sons have been at least 25 countries. We always rank how the trip went. This was the first time any trip was ranked a 10/10 by my kids
The itinerary we planned (which we were very happy with was to visit ULN on the day we land. The next day we took a flight to the Gobi and had a van trip drive us back to ULN over 5 nights.
Amazing Country. Amazing trip. Amazing Agency. Highly Highly recommend them.

What an experience! We really saw the intriguing land and culture of Mongolia with GATE1. Or guide, Ganba, was exceptional. He was exceedingly knowledgeable and so considerate. We highly recommend this tour.
