We went on a 7-day trip with Munkhduulga aka Duke to the Gobi dessert. While there were some uncontrolable hickups (bad weather, broken car), he took good care of us. Duke is a happy guy with a lot of experience in the travel business. He cooks for the whole group and organises the contact with the nomadic people you meet during the trip. He was also really helpful during our stay in UB.


Our 12-day tour with Zhandaulet to Western Mongolia was very impressive. We spent the whole time with him and his crew (Gul the cooking lady and Beke the driver) and they all took really good care about us. With Zhandaulet you get a true impression of the nomadic and kasaque culture of Mongolia. He is a local guy from Ulgii who knows the people and loves his country. He is also interrested in other cultures and we had many good conversations with him. With him you will get the full dose of ...


Our short tour to Khustai and Terelj National Park was a nice trip to experience Mongolia. Galmandakh was very patient and answered promptly many questions so I could put together a trip which pleased us most. This took quite a while as I had many questions and he did not always exactly answer all of of them… Tara, our guide looked well after us. When we realised that her itinerary didn’t fully match with the one we had agreed and paid for (eg. visit of a family in a ger), she was flexible...

We had a fantastic trip organised by Christian. Our guide Uyanga and drivers Dash and Denzag where all great. Really knowledgeable and professional. Everything was well organised and taken care of. A great holiday.


My stay was wonderful! I had great time going on a horse trek in the area with a local guide. Despite a massive storm and power outage during my stay, the people there made my stay quite comfortable. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is travelling in Central Mongolia, or anyone who is only in the country for a short time.


We choose Minjin because she promoted herself as a woman and mother trying to provide a good personal service. She did not disappoint. Our flight was delayed 5 hours and she was still there to meet us late into the night even putting us up overnight in her own home. The guest house was clean and friendly with very attentive staff. The trip to the Gobi was great. A lot of operators would have cancelled when the other party pulled out at the last minute but ours went ahead though without an Eng...

Soko and friends

Everything was great! Soko did a fantastic job organising the trip and allowing us to have flexibility at the different places. She was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable. She was always on time, helped us at the marketplace, choose nice restaurants and was a pleasure to be with. I would definitely choose Soko again!


Zhaun was everything we could have wanted - a young, ambitious guy with good experience deciding to set out on his own. The tour was customized to exactly our interests, he was organized, thoughtful, prepared, and friendly. He made our trip to Mongolia better than we could have hoped. I'm telling all my friends to take a trip to Ulgii and book with Zhaun. We loved him!


Our tour was subcontracted out to another company so it wasn't necessarily true to the spirit of Indy Guide. We had a very nice time in the Gobi but since it wasn't with Galmndakh directly, I don't feel I can fairly give a review.


Muugii did a great job organizing my trip on short notice. Very friendly and replied fast to my questions. I would recommend her to anyone traveling to Mongolia.


I've requested online a 10 days Tour in North and South Mongolia. I've got 10-12 offers through Indy Guide, very diferend regarding prices and descriptions. From far away, Muugii's one seems to be the most professional one, the most complete one, even if it was not the cheapest one. I'm happy and proud to have had a good flair. The Tour was a great one from the first moment up to the last second. Everything went smoothly and perfect. Good and comfortable car & driver, lovely, professio...

Our trip through Mongolia was absolutely amazing. It was something my friend and I will never forget. Our guide Bakhitgul and her team (Lussia and Idos) were simply amazing showing us around Western Mongolia. We experienced so much of the beautiful Mongolian landscape and culture which we will be forever grateful. I would highly recommend this trip, and Khanat to anybody looking to tour through Mongolia.

Zhandaulet made traveling through Western mongolia very easy! He was able to give me a custom tour for my short amount of time there. Everything was taken care of and he was prompt at communication as well as transportation to/from the airport. I highly recommend booking through him. =)


Perfect; Muugii made the experience extra special with her attentive care, understanding, patience and knowledge.

Zhandaulet (‘Zhan’) is kind, cheerful and professional. He speaks fluent English, Kazakh, Mongolian, and Russian. We had great fun in the Altai under his guidance, with many interactions with the locals, which left us with the feeling that all Kazakh-Mongolians in the Altai are the best of friends. We toured with Khajbek as our driver (Zhan’s uncle) and Gul as our cook (Zhan’s auntie-in-law), and so it felt as if we had been adopted into Zhan’s family for a fantastic camping trip. Khajbek is ...
