Reliable Travel Experts
“My wife and I were based in Mongolia for a three-year work tour. Over the course of our stay MonTrails Tours organized over a dozen in-country journeys for us and our visitors. The company worked closely with us to develop fairly-priced itineraries that exactly suited our requirements.
Experienced Mongolia Tour Professionals
We started planning our trip to Mongolia with Erdene Sedjav of Montrails Tours and it was such a pleasure to work with him. We started in Ulaanbaatar and spent 5 days in the Gobi desert. The trip was excellent, especially with our guide Dulguun, who was so knowledgeable and always attentive and full of information.
Gobi Desert Tours led by Montrail Tours
Erdene and his staff took excellent care of us. My husband and I joined his son for a four day guided tour in the Gobi desert.
Each day we drove to a different part of the desert experiencing wildlife, a camel ranch, herds of goats and horses, sand dunes and mountains, and National Parklands.
The customization by Erdene was great. He emailed back and forth with me quite a bit to get everything just right for the amount of time we had in Mongolia. He was always quick to respond. We got to see everything we wanted to see and it was a nice experience.
Just FYI though, when you are out in the Gobi, you have quite a bit of down time, due to the driving time between locations, so bring something else to do with you, electricity is sparse.
Superb self-drive tour through the Gobi.
Montrail Tours worked very closely with me to design a custom tour through the Gobi. Mr. Erdene very carefully listened to my needs as he crafted a custom route through the glorious attractions of the South and Middle Gobi.
My wife and I are based here so we do have our own car. We had four friends visiting from overseas and wanted to take them on a trip. I am familiar with the Gobi so I had a very clear idea of where I wanted to go.
This was the most amazing trip. Having been to Mongolia a couple of times before to do some charity work I wanted to see some of Mongolia and this trip was just great from start to finish. From start to finish the way it was organised and I was looked after was fantastic and with my driver Damdin I could not have wished for a better guide. He was great and even his cooking skills are not bad. I wanted to have an adventure and that is what I got.
Great adventure tour of Gobi desert highlights.
Montrail Tours organized an economical and well-thought out five-day trip to the Gobi. We visited provincial capitals in the South Gobi, among others, and took in the natural wonder of this unique environment. Three Beauty Mountains. The Dunes at Hongor Els and the fossil site where dinosaur eggs were first discovered in the 20s. But the entire journey was the destination.
Great 3 day/2 night customized tour
We had an absolutely wonderful experience with Erdene and Montrails Tours. Erdene was very responsive, helping us confirm our plans well before arriving. We had our own 4WD and driver, Batzorig, who was outstanding. He took great care of us and also served as a fantastic guide throughout our time. We have already recommended Montrails to several colleagues and would strongly encourage you to contact Erdene for a great tour in Mongolia.
Awesome adventure for city girls thanks to Montrails Tours
Montrails Tours made it so easy for us to enjoy ourselves in Mongolia!
The boss Erdene had been a great help right from the start. He was very prompt in answering questions and facilitating the booking process. He also kindly helped us booked the train tickets to our next destination after our trip and included free transport to the train station. Besides he surprised us when he prepared a souvenir package with different Mongolian notes, paper ger and local map for each one of us. He also readily became our money changer when we couldn’t get any!
Great tour, comfortable car, Erdene organised us well. We opted not to take a guide, only a driver who was extremely kind but did not have much English so conversation and explanation was limited. He rather left us to get on with it. The danger in Mongolia is you feel you are driving the same circuit as everyone else, and it is hard to have a very individual trip – particularly if you cannot really communicate. All in all, a great experience, good value for money, and a glorious break from the intensity of SE Asia.
Amazing trip to the Gobi desert & Golden Eagle festival
Erdene and his team at MonTrails are amazing hosts and tour guides who organised a simply amazing and not to be missed trip to the Gobi desert. Since we live in Ulaanbaatar, we reached out to a few tour groups to compare offerings for this trip and Erdene was by far, the most responsive and most open to our changes and suggestions. He met every need, provided excellent drivers and vehicles and never missed a beat to add more fun and see more sights.
Montrails provide amazing views of Mongolia!
We’ve used Montrails for trips to the Mongolian Gobi, historic tours, Hustai National Park, 13th century park and they were all wonderful. Excellent communication, easy arrangements and all comforts provided. This is an outstanding tour company. I highly recommend working with them for unique and personally tailored peeks at an amazing country!
A great tour operator for personal attention in Mongolia
We traveled with Montrails on a 16 day program that began and ended in Ulaanbaatur. It was a unique travel experience, mostly in wilderness areas with few facilities separated by great distances. It’s the kind of trip that would be virtually impossible to organize on one’s own but Montrails handled all of our arrangements (there were 4 of us) and were exceptionally flexible in doing so.
I had the opportunity to travel in Mongolia with several friends by Montrails Tour Company. I arrived in the middle of the night and there was Zolboo Mashbat waiting with a smile and lots of enthusiasm even though it was a time when he would normally be asleep. He escorted me to my hotel and waited to ensure I was checked in without any problems before leaving. The next morning, he arrived on time and conducted a terrific tour of Ulaanbaatar.
Bay Area (California) meant a professional, well organized experience. After an unfortunate tour with another outfitter, we felt SO take care of by Erdene and his gracious, warm staff! I urge tourists to visit Mongolia with MonTrails.”
” I was lucky enough to be on a two week trip with Erdene to Mongolia. Along with the beautiful and spectacular scenery and friendly reception from the locals, he proved to be an invaluable companion and organiser, always cheerful and positive whatever the situation. Many thanks to him for making a good trip into a great one. If anyone is thinking of taking a trip to Mongolia, you would be hard pressed to find a better guide to acompany you than Erdene!”
I had the most amazing trip of 16 days to Mongolia. Traveled every night to a different part of Gobi Desert starting in North from the Capital Ulaan Baatar to Central Gobi, then Southern Gobi and then back to Northern Mongolia. Stayed in a GER (Mongolian tent) in national parks, steppe, mountains, sand dunes and ancient sea bed!! Had beautifully plated vegetarian food throughout. The amazing terrains, its historical and geographical heritage has left me mesmerized!! I love Mongolia!! And all the arrangements done by Erdene of Motrails tours were just superb!!
Out of this world
We had one of the best trips of our lives with Montrails Tours. The planning was simple and straightforward, and Erdene was meticulous in his attention to detail. We travelled from UB to the Gobi desert over 8 nights with car, guide and driver, both of whom were experts in their field, and wonderful company. Mongolia is an amazing country and during this trip we had the opportunity to see a small part of it. We travelled across what seemed to be oceans of wilderness, often on roads which seemed non-existent to our untrained eye.
I visited Mongolia for 8 days last October. For such a few days, I experienced the contrasting weather of Mongolia. On the first 2 days, I was fascinated by the autumn color of the forest. But after 2nd night, I was so shocked that the whole yellow grassland was covered by the pure white snow. It is so amazing! Above all, I am so impressed by Erdene’s hospitality. I will say he is more than a professional tour guide. He treats me just like his old friend or even his son.
The 4 of us adventerous guys from Switzerland have visited this vast and beautiful country in early October 2012. We must really admit that we were lucky to be travelling with Erdene who proved to be an expert tour guide. He is a kind of person who knows an answer to any question you ask him about Mongolia or even about life in general – both east and west on our planet since he is one of the few Mongolians that really travelled and had lived in the western world too. From the beginning to the end we were astonished by wonderful scenery and wide open space almost everywhere.
“Mongolia is big…Mongolia is beautiful. To get around, even in the city, it’s best to have the company of a guide. The language is very difficult if not impossible to understand. No matter which direction you go, north to the Russian border, south to the China border or east or west, the country is breathtaking and the people friendly. In the city of Ulan Baatar getting around is easy enough but for a trip outside the city hire a man by the name of Erdene. Erdene spent time in the U.S. and speaks good English and knows the culture.
