GREAT tour with Altai Nomadic Expedition!!I did a 5 night/6 day tour with Tamirra, my guide, and Gamba, my driver, and I loved it! Tamirra and Gamba were great company, and I really enjoyed spending time with them and learning about Mongolia from Mongolians. Delicious meals were prepared and had a nice, comfortable car while driving to the White Stupa, Yol Valley, Khongor sand dunes, Flaming Cliffs, and Baga Gazriin Chuluu. I really enjoyed meeting Mongolian families, staying in gers, seeing camels and livestock in their natural environment, and doing some great hikes and seeing beautiful scenery. I LOVED riding a camel in the Gobi Desert and a horse in the Yol Valley.
Our family had a week long trip in July 2016 in Central Mongolia with Tamiraa as our guide and Nyamaa as our driver. Tamiraa is very professional, friendly and helpful person. She provided us with unique experience of beautiful Mongolia and nomadic life. The driver Nyamaa is highly professional too and is very responsible person. Safety and comport of passengers is his top priority.Our children enjoyed the trip very much too. I highly recommend to travel with this Altai Nomadic and especially with Tamiraa and Nyamaa. We will surely come again to Mongolia and choose Tamiraa again as our guide.
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. Right from pickup at the airport to drop, we were always helped with a smile which made us feel we were spending time with family in a new and unknown place.Since we were travelling in winter and with the temperatures not familiar to us (being from Calcutta, India where temperatures are never sub zero), Tamiraa made sure we were comfortable at all times. She never rushed us in the trip even when we were taking up too much time at a particular spot. She was also very patient with us being very noisy people.
