1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

We had an incredible trip. The horses were so strong and tough! We had them gallop over sand-dunes and climb rocky cliffs. I cannot imagine that anyone would let you do the things on horseback that we did!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Mongolia in the begining of September can be very cold and wet. Bring enough warm clothes! Try to enjoy the trip as much as you can, do not just trot in line behind the wrangler's horse, stop whereever you want, gallop and explore the surrounding!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We did visit many local families, slept in their yurts during bad weather and bought their food. I had the feeling that a large part of my money went to local people!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

We stayed in untouched nature, saw the most amazing stars at night, and had great and freshly cooked food! It was probably one of the best trips I ever made!

Hi Timucin, I'm very glad you enjoyed the trip, and thank you for your wonderful feedback. I like your tip about not following along in a line - I much prefer to see people charging off in all directions and having fun! All the best, John

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

All of my holiday was exciting to first boarding the flight to Ullaanbaatar and arriving via Moscow into the land of Ghenkis Khann - that's what brought me here, so much history

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

This trip is for the ultimate adventurer - camping in the wild with great people looking after you. Research carefully if it's what you really want - I'm two months off my 70th birthday and i loved it but I'm a tom boy and it's what I always wanted. Zavkhaan will look after you well.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Definitely all 3

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Awesome trip - first class, great food and well looked after - no faults - GREAT.
