Steve Jorgan – Norway
I booked several trips through AMA Tours: the Tour of Genghis Khan Statue Complex/Terelj National Park, the Tour of Hustai National Park and the Semi-Gobi tour with camel ride and visit a nomad family included, and I also attended a horse head fiddle lesson.
All of them were very well organized, I was picked up at home in the morning and I could ask to be left somewhere in the city center when we returned. Amar (the guide) was very welcoming, friendly and with great knowledge of the country and desire to share his culture. Amar is also very fluent in English, and make lots of jokes, so it was a real pleasure to chat and to spend days with him, along with meeting new people along the trip (you can book a trip yourself or you can join an already organised trip with a discount).
There are a lot of travel agencies in Ulaanbaatar, but here is what I liked about Authentic Mongolian Adventure Tours: the prices are not excessive, even though their tours are all-inclusive (guide, trip, lunch, entrance, activities such as camel riding), I got to see more than just what was planned at the beginning, the tourguide Amar is really passionate, fluent in English and has extensive knowledge to share, he is very friendly and makes you feel at ease, and in short the agency is very available and accommodating.
I would highly recommend this group, and I will definitely book trips with them again If I go back to Mongolia!
