Never reply to emails and phone though made 10%deposit. Have to book another driver.


Gabiden's is a top shelf travel company for someone looking for true adventure, genuine experience and overall travel satisfaction. It is a reliable family run business. Everyone was friendly and accommodating to make sure there was customer satisfaction. On my recent trip to Western Mongolia I found their travel package with the Eagle Hunters Festival as the center piece more than met my expectations. Some of the highlights were experiencing Mongolian Kazakh nomadic culture. Living with an e...

Kike about Ako

After our fabulous trip to the mountains, horse ridings and eagle hunting, me and my girlfriend had an amazing time. Then we arrived to Ulgii and didn't know much on what to do, Ako help us alot, he's a magnificent guy, his English is awesome and he has a great sense of humor, he is very knowledgeable, also played songs for us and invited us to his home after everything. At night we end up playing basketball at a local indoor gym and visited a local hooka bar. Our trip was complete! Than...

I have just ended the 3 day semi desert and Khustai National park tour and to conclude, the whole experience was tremendously pleasant. Soko was very responsive during our correspondence online and upon meeting her, we were pleased to learn that she is equally helpful and engaging. The driver, Norvoo, was friendly and very helpful despite not being able to speak any English.Due to the fact that we are pescastarians, Soko prepared all our meals herself and the food was indeed wholesome and tas...

HI Baka, sorry to be so slow. Trying to fit back into my western, first world life has been an adjustment. My experience in Ulgii has changed me. I really appreciate you pairing me with my guide, Sonia Sophia Sultankhan. She was such an attribute to my experience of Mongolia. Her knowledge of English, her understanding of the Kazakh people and her kindness, all added immensely to my trip. I want to thank you for setting up my home stay with Galeena and her Eagle hunter family. To live w...

Andy has been very profesional and very flexible. He has changed the itinerary based on our suggestions and what we could ask on the way. He has tried to make us get in touch as much as possible with the local culture. We appreciated that he took so much care about us.

We enjoyed a beautiful trip through the southern, central and northern part of Mongolia this June. With our dutiful driver Sukhee it was possible to see countless highlights along the way and experience a true Mongolian outdoor adventure. This incredible journey was only possible due to the excellent support of Soko. Very patiently she helped us to organise the trip in advance, answered my thousand questions and prepared us a tailormade itinerary. Thank you Sokko for that, for the all-day-...

Great adventure in Mongolia! It wouldn't have been possible without Indy Guide & Nurbol's assistance. I made a post on Indy Guide asking for a very specific trip to be arranged. This was to be a multi-day trip on horseback following an eagle hunter through the Altai mountains. My request was for a minimalist set-up where just a few horses, eagle, and hunter would be provided. We brought our own camping gear, food, and water which we attached to an extra horse. Nurbol contacted ...

We just took a 5-days Beauty of golden Gobi for 2 persons. The first surprise was that our Russian Van was a Toyota Land Cruissier comfortable and reliable. Tugi our very experienced driver, was our friendly guide-driver who has traveled extensively and speaks fluent English, very attentive and does his best to take care of us. In addition he is an excellent cooker and has good Mongolians music in his phone that have shorted distances. Thank you for making this travel so great.

Tamiraa and Team were extremely helpful to us in every step of the way. They changed our schedule when we expressed that we did not want to spend the first night in a local ger. They accomodated us in Dalangadzad which was an extra 30 km drive. When we came back to Dalanzadgad on the last day, and we were not happy with thier hotel choice, they upgraded to a better hotel. The driver (I think Baira was his name) was extremely friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend them.

Soko and friends

Wonderful experience we had. From the very 1st time we engage Soko till the end of the trip, she provided very clear day to day itinerary. Update us on the weather situation as the tour date draws nearer and advise us on the things to bring. Our driver and guides were equally wonderful, Making sure that we are warm and well-fed throughout the trip.

Just got back from a nine day Gobi tour with my girlfriend, and I have only good things to say! Soko invited us to her office, and over a cup of tea we went through our route. She was super friendly and helpful, even offering to keep helping us even after our tour ended. The tour itself was fab. We had a WONDERFUL tour guide called Helen (a dentistry student) and a kind, super experienced (very funny) driver. The ger camps we stayed in were all comfortable and camping spots well chosen. L...

Davka and Team

We've booked a one day trip for Naadam festival. The tour was not well managed at all. We joined the opening ceremony but unfortunately, we saw neither archery competition nor ankle bone shooting nor wrestling competition! In the afternoon the team drove us to the horse racing field at Khui Doloon Khudag, but we arrived too late to see any horse racing. We were fully reimbursed but we are so disappointed to have a so long trip and wasted our day.


everything went very well. We wanted a comprehensive tour in Mongolia: south, center, north, west.. Tamiraa proposed her tour, 25 days seeing everything we wanted to see, the ultimate Mongolia tour, we did some adjustments here and there and that was it, with a very afordable price. The guide Chingis and the driver Gonchgoo were really great as well of course there were some small bumps here and there, as any long travel to Mongolia is likely to happen, but all whithin the normal. I'd su...
