Our tours

Even if you are only here for business, you will want to see as much of our beautiful country as possible. Our tours make it easy for you to enjoy the many sights our country has to offer. We travel to many of the most interesting parts of Mongolia and have a network of connections to help make your travels comfortable. Here are some possible combinations of destinations that can be combined for a tour. Start by matching the time you have available with the choices to the left. Our tours generally leave early in the morning and return late on the final day, so do leave enough time for your other travel connections. If you are looking for a longer journey we can combine two or more trips in one, or we will work with you to design a custom trip. Just let us know what you have in mind.


Our travel services

Over the years of helping visitors, we have learned some important lessons about the process of traveling in our remote country. There are several services that we offer to help you manage your journey.


Permission letter or invitation letter

Foreign nationals from some countries may need a permission letter or a letter of invitation to get a visa to visit Mongolia.


Train Reservations

As a fully licensed and bonded specialist tour operator with direct contracts with the Mongolian Railways, we can issue, and deliver, train tickets to Russia and China. As you would expect our service is on-line, track able, competitively priced and managed to the highest standards.


Transfers and Cars with Drivers

We have negotiated "bulk rates" with professional transfer companies to be able to offer you anything from a transfer from Chinggis Khaan airport to the city at great prices. You will be met at the airport, railway station, river terminal or hotel by the driver and transferred quickly, safely and in comfort to your destination.
We do not recommend that you use unofficial or "independent" taxi companies for safety reasons and in most cases you will end up paying far more.
