Wow. We booked this with Uuna very last minute and she did amazingly to organise everything in such a short period of time, especially when it’s just come out of winter and accommodation and people are difficult to find in the low-tourist season! This was a 6 day tour through the Terelj National Park, Semi-Gobi, the Orkhon Waterfall, Hot Springs and the historical city of Karakorum. Every day was fantastic.

You meet with a lot of local families and nomads and share tea and a lotttt of mutton with them. The people of Mongolia are incredibly friendly and hospitable. This has been the highlight of our trip so far and one of the best experiences of our lives. Mongolia is a beautiful country from the scenery to the people and this tour proved that to us ten-fold!
