The great Gobi Tour was a fantastic and great expedition. I was also in the ancient steles of Tonyukuk near Nalaikh, and the grandiosity Terelj National Park. Mongolia is a wonderful and strange country. I will remember all of my life. I would like to return this beautiful land.

Just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic trip and really enjoyed ourselves in Gobi desert, Mongolia. The accommodations, guides, and activities super exceeded our expectations and we had a really unforgettable experience. Everything was extremely well organised and went very smoothly. Thanks again for all your help with our trip!
Our trip was so perfectly organised and planned by Altai Nomadic. We had no idea what a wonderful trip this would turn out to be. Since we were travelling in winter and with the temperatures not familiar to us (being from Calcutta, India where temperatures are never sub zero), Altai Nomadic Tour company made sure we were comfortable at all times.
