I went with Discover Mongolia in July 2023. The trip covered south, central, north Mongolia, and Nadaam festival. Overall, I enjoyed visiting Mongolia. It is a pristine country and people are wonderful here. I was entirely in awe of how they incorporate modern inventions into their nomadic lives. I was impressed by the love and care they have for their families, animals and the land. My trip was a positive one. Impressed by the inherent qualities in Mongolia. But I was not impressed by the Discover Mongolia in many aspects of the trip. I will put in separate reviews for the different components of the tour. Here I will review the company as a whole.

The positives:
All of our reservations worked. All Ger camp were reasonable accommodations. We were given reasonable amounts of food and water. The drivers seem to know the route very well. The cars were comfortable. Day one we had a walkie talkie so we were able to tell the other car we wanted a short stop. After that the walkie talkies were out of battery. But we had a route that was their standard route and everything worked well.
Also I met couple of people from the office. They acted as our tour guides on some city tours. They were very sweet.

Here are my major criticisms:

We were asked by Discover Mongolia to bring gifts from USA for our visits to the herder families. I brought 8 boomerangs and 8 lipsticks for the women and children. But our tour guide asked repeatedly to sequester our gifts because she said she knew the families and can decide better what they should receive. Sounds convincing so eventually we did as she asked and put our gifts into a bag and let her keep it. When we visited the first family she told us the family is well to do and we should give them money instead. When we got to the second family we were told that since we were planning to eat with them we were to bring some hard alcohol to bring as a gift along with other food items to supplement the meal. Ultimately, I did not see her give out my lipsticks and we gave the boomerangs to children we met in the fields. Others in my group also felt that their gifts disappeared.

Another issue was food. Our tour included all meals. We found Mongolian meats are a little gamier that what we were used to. So at times we were served food that we couldn't eat. We did not complain because this is what happens when you travel. But our Discover Mongolia tour guide complained incessantly that we were wasting food and starting requesting that we share meals. We were even asked to share soup pots when we went to a hot pot place. I told her I don't eat lamb and can't share with someone who eats lamb. She went on and on about how I didn't want to share. It was unbearable.

One person in our group, one day, was asked to pay a penalty for soiling the bedsheet. Apparently the camp called out tour guide, after we already left, to pay an additional fee because they thought one of the sheets was soiled too much and the person using it must have had diarrhea. The person who was asked to pay was embarrassed but said to us that she did not have diarrhea. She even pulled our her PJ showed us that it was perfectly clean. She also did not get up at night to go to the bathroom. After that we would inspect the sheets at every camp. FYI: they hand wash and lay out the items on grass to dry.

For the Nadaam festival, this company really fell short. It was badly planned. No part of it felt like it was planned by someone who has been to Nadaam. First day, just getting to the horse racing venue, we were stuck in traffic for more than 2 hours. Our driver, our tour guide and anyone we talked to said that there is always a lot of traffic on this road especially for the Nadaam horse racing. I definitely felt that they should have taken this into account and planned our itinerary accordingly.

Another short fall is advance planning of how we were to view the events. One can buy bleacher seats for horse racing for about $6. Our tour guide would ask us if we wanted to sit in the bleacher, or go into a special sectioned area for archery. The cost would usually be equivalent of $6. Each and every single time the tickets would have been sold out. There were many events where it's the only way to actually see something without fighting the crowd or having the police tell you to leave, move or sit down on the dirt, etc. It would only cost about $6. But it's too late to buy the tickets the day of. I would have gladly paid for it even if I don't get to use it.

A big shortfall is the seating for the Nadaam opening ceremony. For bookings over a year prior to the events, we got seated in the last row. The highest and farthest row. On top of that, My seat was directly behind a column. I couldn't see directly in front of me. When I complained to the tour guide, she told to get up and stand. That was indeed what I had to do for the entire show. I had to find a spot where I could stand and see something. I am not sure if there are people out there who would fly from US to Mongolia to see Nadaam, and agree to sit at a spot where you couldn't see anything. But I am not one of them.

I did attempt to contact Discover Mongolia to ask them about the details of planning this Nadaam tour. My idea was that I want to understand the price point and maybe difficulties in obtaining tickets. I wanted to communicate my disappointment and see what their reasoning was behind these shortfalls. Sadly to say, they did not answer my emails.

We did the amazing 2 weeks travel and loved it! Professional and fun, flexible to our needs, and good vibes! Recommended
Our tour guides were fun, knowledgeable, and translated whenever we needed (thank you Togso and Jack!). Our driver amazing, always felt safe and taken care of. The different spots, particularly the nomadic families, are a unique experiences though can be challenging for western tourists.
Come ready for adventure and an open mind.

I had an absolutely amazing experience on the 13 day Beauty of Mongolia and Nadaam Festival tour! Mongolia has been on my bucket list for years and this tour more than met my expectations. The country and it's people are wonderful in every way. Our guide, Togosoo, was perfect. She went above and beyond to make our trip spectacular and we all became friends along the way. I would highly recommend Discover Mongolia for anyone wishing to visit this beautiful country.

Our family of four people booked online with Discover Mongolia and the team designed for us a 7-day customized schedule. Emails from the team were very prompt and payment processing was fast and reliable. The management team fully support us with arranging hotels at Ulaanbaatar on our first and last days with airport transfer to be included in the tour package. Overall, we highly appreciate their efforts and find the package was value for money.

The tour driver Mr Miigaa was very kind, gentle, helpful, so patient with us despite having to pick us up at midnight and then dropping us at the airport very early in the last day morning. His driving skills are very reliable and he even spent time after dinner driving back to a tour point just to pick up an item I forgot while travelling.

The tour guide, Ms Myagmar Uuganaa was also very kind, gentle, cheerful, considerate, and possesses very good relationships with key persons at each tour destination. She took really good care of our accommodation, meals, feelings, health status to arrange touring time which fit us all in a relaxing way.

She knows very well about the history, culture, or the story behind every place, and can quickly noticed the grazing rain deers or wild horses up high and far away in the mountains, or the little cute marmots along the way across the national park. Therefore, we could stopped at the right place to enjoy every moment near such beautiful creatures, and we were guided on how to walk slowly and quietly to get really close to the gentle and amazing wild horses.

Mongolian is really inspiring in its wonderful nature and its deep history and culture. I can never forget the sweet flavor of the special herbs that can be found anywhere on the grass fields. The horses, sheeps, cows, yaks, goats, and all kinds of animals living here are so free and can enjoy grass with special herbs. I see happiness in them just to be such free animals. They are also so weathered and strong, which made me think all of us should spend much more time to be closer to nature and respect nature much more.

Mongolian naadam, or traditional festival (regional or national), is very charming, where you can really see how the beautifully dressed Mongolian people play skillful games (knuckle shooting, horse racing, archery, and various delicious traditional foods).

Experience the Nomad families' lifestyle and enjoying their specially cooked foods, listening to their stories, we learned a great deal about nature and realized how far away from nature we are. This caused us to think more about how to live in peace with nature for a happy and sustainable life, where animals are free and dearly loved.

I think no words are enough to describe this experience, and I wish I can come back again to explore more about Mongolia, as there are still so many things we haven't got time to spend on.

My love to Miigaa and Uuganaa, wishing them good health and happiness,

I went on a three day trip to Kharkhorin and Elsen Tasarkhai. It was an amazing experience - Uuganaa and Ochiroo did their best to make the trip truly memorable and I can highly recommend going with them! The tour company is very professional and everything was perfectly organized. Shinee answered all my questions before the trip and always got back to me fast. They had delicious vegetarian food and the Ger camps were comfortable (with electricity etc). I would definitely choose Discover Mongolia again!

What an amazing tour of an amazing place. Seeing the Nadaam festival in the small city of Karakoram was a true highlight. Seeing the traditional Mongolian sports in a small town fair setting was special. Also this festival was a true and authentic celebration of Mongolian culture. This was a Mongolian festival for Mongolians, not for tourists at all. Being there exposed us to the true Mongolian spirit.

Our tour guide Togosdorj was great. She was very friendly and very knowledgeable about all things Mongolia. The tour went very smoothly as she quickly solved all the minor things that inevitably come up in a long cross country tour. Our driver Suren was great too. He could get us anywhere. I totally recommend this tour company and this tour to anyone interested in Mongolia.

Wow!! My dad and I went to Mongolia in July 23, and really I had no idea what to expect. Everything with Discover Mongolia was amazing. I work with a ton of tour companies all over the world because of my job (I am a travel advisor), and I can 100% say Discover Mongolia is one of the best. My guide (and now friend), Togosdorj, was simply amazing. Not only did she become a friend to our entire group, she knew so much about everywhere that we went, Mongolian culture, she adapted to what we as a group were interested in, and we shared so many laughs! I truly felt so lucky to have her along for my 13 days journey - thank you Togosdorj and Discover Mongolia!!! I can't wait to return and also have my clients experience Discover Mongolia :)

We had an action-packed day, full of beautiful views, friendly people and cultural improvement :). Oyuna, our guide, and Damba, our driver, were very friendly & knowledgeable people & we were lucky to spend the day with them. I would recommend this day out to anyone staying in Ulaanbaatar.

Mongolia is a stunningly beautiful country. Once out of Ulan Bataar it is all wide open spaces with breathtaking views of unspoiled mountains and plains and of course the great Gobi desert. I took a 16 day tour which included a local Nadaam festival and I don’t think we missed a thing. We rode horses and camels and stayed in a ger camp right on lake Khovsgol. The tour was very well organized and our guide, Oyuna, knew all about Mongolian history and culture. We stayed in a different ger camp every night and they were all clean and comfortable with western facilities and the food was excellent. I highly recommend a visit to Mongolia and I would absolutely use Discover Mongolia Travel.
