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 ...

If you are looking for a tour guide for your Mongolia trip, I highly recommend Duke. My husband and I traveled to Khovsgol Lake for 9 days with Duke and Zara, a driver, and they made our trip very special. He is an experienced and excellent tour guide who can arrange your trip according to what you want to do. He is also a very good chef. Our trip couldn't have been better thanks to Duke.

I´m still overwhelmed with mongolia experience! :)


While its always a little scary using an independent service - I say, don't hesitate to use Indy-Guide as it is a professionally run organisation that enables locals to be better paid and us travellers to get much better value! Our guide Duke has perfect English - a great cultural understanding of the western world - so we can joke around a bit and took care of all the details so our trip ran smoothly and when the inevitable hiccups happen as they do when you are on the road, his first acti...

I have just come back from a 19 day tour with Nurbol covering Altai mountains and Gobi desert in Mongolia. I was on this tour with a friend and unfortunately we were severely disappointed in the quality. When we arrived at Ulgii airport, Nurbol and our first driver Nurbek collected us and off we headed for a week in the Altai mountains with our cook Janka also. He informed us that he does tour guiding part time in this annual leave from working in a bank. He later said that when he design...

The guide Batshuk was excellent. He had good english and was very helpful. The accommodation and meals very good. Geoff Kricker


We had an amazing time. My friend and I were travelling for four months total, but our week in the Gobi with Duke and Driver was definitely a highlight. They're both a lot of fun, the tour was action-packed and allowed us to be immersed in the culture, and Duke cooks good food.


We had a great experience in Mongolia, especially in Altaï. Taskhyn was a great help to organize the trip. We discuss with him to cutomize the itinerary as we wanted. And he was also a force of new proposal, knowing perfectly his Bayan-Olgii region. Also Taskhyn works with Nurka, our driver. Both work together as a real team to make the trip amazing and memorable.
