    This tour was incredible! Dorj is knowledgeable, kind, fun loving, an excellent driver, and so much more. He did everything within his power to make our tour as special as possible.

    Thank you so much Dorj!!

    This was our first visit to Ulaanbaatar and Bayambaa picked up my colleague and I at our hotel. He took us to see the Chinggis Khan statue and the sights of the National park. It was a fabulous tour. Bayambaa was a great driver and we felt very safe. Would highly recommend 👌

    The travel was very long over 5 hours each way and the road very bumpy with lots of pit holes. The vehicle we were travelling in was very uncomfortable, six people in a small mini van and only stopped once by the roadside when someone was desperate for the loo. The tour guide was lovely but slept both ways of the journey so not very informative. Despite this the time spent in the Gobi was worth it and we had a great time riding camels.

    Great tour! The best part was actually talking with the friendly, English speaking tour operator about life in Mongolia. Because it was winter, I was the only one on the tour. It was nice that he still ran the tour for me. Pick up and dropoff at hotel was nice. This was a great day trip if you only have a short amount of time in Ulaanbaatar.

    This trip was just a great experience for me and my girlfriend. We travelled with Zendmen travel last summer with two trips. One of them was 9 days Gobi tour and other was Naadam festival day trip. Both trip was unbelievable.

    Naadam is such great must-visit festival. Heard about Naadam festival from friend before but experiencing a horse racing and opening ceremony was even better than I expected.

    Zendmen took care of us just right, definitely recommend them.

    If you have a couple of days and would like to experience the natural beauty of Mongolia without having to travel too far, this is the perfect place!
    It’s was great to escape the chaos, hectiness and traffic of Ulaanbaatar to connect with nature in a relaxing and authentic way through horseriding.

    The location was stunning.
    We immediately felt welcomed by the warm hospitality of the staff. Everyone was very inclusive and friendly. We stayed in a traditional ger and explored the surrounding forest and beautiful Mongolian hills on horseback. There is no better way of exploring the vastness of Mongolian countryside than on horseback. This was a true highlight.
    The food was always freshly prepared. Learning and sharing Mongolian food in a ger with the locals was an experience on its own. It was truly enjoyable to hear all the stories and learn about traditions during our meals. You could realise how passionate Mongolians are to preserve and share their heritage with visitors.
    If you are in Mongolia and would like immediate adventure and cultural immersion without having to drive miles away, I fully recommend this experience - you will enjoy it 100%.

    This tour company exceeded my expectations in all ways. I went for the Naadam Festival and toured all the sites around Mongolia the previous week (12 days total). I was with an extremely competent guide and driver the whole time. Both went above & beyond to provide top notch service. I most appreciated the flexibility as I was able to change the itinerary and schedule to what was convenient for me. All the yurt camps were of high quality, very clean and also extremely service oriented. Also, my hotel stay in Ulan Bator was exceptional with attention to detail to make sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed. No wonder their customer ratings are so high - they work to keep it that way! Thank you for a great trip to Mongolia!

    I'm expat in Mongolia, when I first came here I felt everything different. Before Mongolia I been to bunch of countries to live in. Mongolia was very much different than those. I've always wanted to live like a real nomad, riding horses like locals, do same as nomadic housewives daily work. Last summer I made it over and helped by Gala. It was amazing to live with nomadic family. I rode horse everyday, making cheese and curds, drinking airag /fermented mare's milk/ was my favorite. I got nicest hosts who were the most hospitable people I had ever met. Gala /owner of the company/ connected the family and organized everything. I have loads of experience now and when I'm back to Canada I have plenty of stories to tell. Thanks to all I met during the trip. Thanks to iTour team for wonderful trip.

    Wow -- this tour company was excellent. We tried 2 other companies - Tour radar and Viator. Tour Radar was good, but Juulchin was better. Viator tours we do not recommend.

    Juulchin set up a tour at the last minute after a tour set up by Viator was a no-show the morning of the scheduled tour - in fact, the Viator tour guide did not answer phone calls or text messages - basically took our money and no one showed (we did finally get a refund from Viator, but not worth it.)

    In contrast, Juulchin was at the hotel within an hour of the call. The driver and tour guide were fun, and interesting and the guide had excellent English and was a wealth of information. In addition to the statute, we visited a nomadic family that provided us with a horse tour. The lunch was one of the best we had in Mongolia.

    We looked to see if we could use them for other tours but were unable to cancel prior scheduled tours. Juulchin will be our go-to when we return.

    Magnificent monument. Worth the trip out from the city.
    Lucky enough to be taken out by a work colleague so stopped for local food on the return trip.
    Great day.

    Byam provided a tour of Ulaanbaatar with unrivalled insight and professionalism. He can tailor the sights exactly to your interests and will provide a level of explanation exactly to your liking. He has a wealth of knowledge in a variety of fields ranging from Buddhism, Mongolian history, and Ulaanbaatar itself. I highly recommend taking advantage of this as you won’t find this level on insight anywhere else.

    Byam is also an exceptionally safe and careful driver that takes great care in the comfort and enjoyment of your travel.

    I can also recommend his other services (airport transfer and national park/ Chinggis Khaan equestrian statue tour) as they are of the same high quality and provide consistent peace of mind.

    I hope to enjoy the pleasure of his company again.

    This was a fantastic day-trip from Ulaanbaatar. The guide met us on time in the hotel lobby and he spoke excellent English. The first part of the trip was very bumpy due to road construction, but then it got better. We did a quick stop at the impressive Genghis Khan statue, but the main event was the horseback riding in Terelj National Park. We enjoy a full three hours with the horses in magnificent nature, and then we were served lunch by the horse owner’s wife, in a traditional ger. So enjoyable, so well organised, so beautiful. Highly recommended!

    The guide Bachi Nyangar was simply amazing! Extremly knowledgable about the history, sights, great English language skills. The tour was perfectly fitting to the description. Amazing sighting of a buddhist temple in the national park Terelj. The experience was just beyond our expectation! Thank you so much! Highly recommended! A+++++
