From the moment ELMARTOURS TEAM picked us up from our hotel in Ulaanbaatar, until the moment he dropped us off at the Airport about 800 miles later—our time in Mongolia was both amazing and well organized. Our itinerary included a City tour of Ulaanbaatar, a day trip to visit an Eagle Hunter including archery and visiting his home. We visited the Kustai National Park and Takhi Wild Horses, Erdenzuu, Karakorum & Ruins, Terhiin Tsagaan Nuur Lake, and he arranged for us to ride Mongolian Horses, Yaks and Camels for prolonged periods of time—and not just the typical tourist ride of 10 minutes. In addition, Tilyek also organized lodging and meals at decent Tourist Camps. Along the way, we requested several last minute changes for various reasons, and he never complained—and always accommodated.
Tilyek made certain that we had a comfortable and reliable ride with a Toyota Land Cruiser, which was driven by a very competent former bodyguard for the Prime Minister. Tilyek’s English was excellent; he got our jokes; and never hesitated to translate for us when we wanted to communicate directly with some of the people we encountered. He also shared his experiences and recommendations for future trips at different times of the year. All in all, we felt that we got good value, and a series of experiences that we will always remember.
