Baatar and Chimgee

I had to cancel. English spoken is not proper.

Davka and Team

All went smoothly with youthful guide full of enthusiasm

Munkhtuya and Experienced Team

The tour was absolutely great! Twenty something tourists joined the trip and the entire tour was accomplished by 4 (or 5) tour guides. They were all very nice and could speak very good English. As I didn’t know how to go to the assembly point, the tour company even sent a car to drive me there. What I could say about the tour is everything, including the meals (breakfast, lunch, snack), was very good and I had a very pleasant time with the tour.

Hogy and our team

Hogy was very helpful and made sure we get the best from our trip. The driver and the guides were friendly and knowledgeable. It was a great experience, and it went well because of Hogy and her team.

Ganaa & Team

Excellent. Ganaa replied quickly and was able to help me. She met me within an hour, spoke excellent English and gave me all the information I needed to attend Naadam. Thank you, Ganaa!

Davka and Team

The trip was well organized and everything was as described. Nice guide and driver. Recommended.

Terelj & Team

Just returned from our trip with Terelj & Team. We are a family of 3, traveling through Central Asia for the last few weeks, and booked this trip on a whim (and so glad we did!). We were a little uncertain at first when choosing from so many vendors, but Terelj contacted us immediately with an ideal offer and was really responsive& helpful throughout the process of booking up until our arrival. And the trip itself, what an amazing experience it was! We were picked up on time by our ...


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...

Soko and friends

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 and Friends

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.
