This Mongolia tour welcomes you with unspoiled beauty, rich pageantry and vivid history.

Almost half of the Mongolians live in the countryside, following their herds from one pasture to another. All summer they are busy tending their animals, and making cheese and yogurt. Once a year, in July, the whole country is involved in competitions that determine its best horses, archers and wrestlers, during the colorful Naadam Festival. Visitors are welcome! Explore these and more with your expert personal guide, available 24/7 on your schedule!

  • Give yourself a couple of extra days leeway in Ulaanbaatar if you are taking domestic Mongolian flights. The planes have no radar and are weather dependent. U.B. has plenty of things to do if your flights are on time - but they aren't always, so be prepared!
  • Book a tour through U.B.'s Shuren, Beijing's Monkey Business, G.A.P. or other travel agencies. You need a guide, car, and driver to get around, especially if you don't speak the language. Directional signs are rare.
  • Pack a safety helmet if you're going to ride horses. Approach horses from their sides. Don't assume the animals you see are tame and want humans to pet them.
  • If you are going out to the countryside by jeep, stock up on bottled water and fresh fruit in U.B. before you go. Take a flashlight and toilet paper for your own use. Bring candy, toys, and picture books as gifts for the families you will be visiting. These hard-working people will shower you with hospitality.
  • Even with a world cellular telephone, you'll only be able to phone home if you're within a kilometer of a town. Mongolia's land-line system doesn't always work very well. Expect to be deliciously cut off from the world.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
