We are a group of 5 ladies from Singapore. We book the 2 weeks tour based on some recommendation. The booking and administrative details and follow up needs to be improved.. response is generally slow and communications not so clear. There was a hiccup in the beginning , dinner booking was not made in UB and we had to walk a good one hour before we settled on one available dining place. The next two weeks were rugged .. an unconventional travel that we embarked on in 2 jeeps traversing 3000 km
Overall we had fantastic guide Buyna and two very different yet charming drivers Baija (the rocker) & Derem ( the Korean star look alike). They worked very well as a team to make sure we are comfortable (including nature calls) . While communications is limited with the drivers .. we managed to express our joy and fun.
The country its very vast and have beautiful spots to show off and the culture has long history. It was truly a out of the norm experience to stay at gers ( keep getting our head knocked for the low doors)… using common toilets and showers … limited electricity and water supply hours… we were very happy when we had ensuite toilets or ensuite shower/toilet for some accommodation.
The food is better than we had expected and the tour agency provided extra fruits for us at our request.. We love the flaming cliffs ; the terej park; hiking up volcano to name a few… but most of us the journey in the jeep is unforgettable.. the bumpy; rocky; winding rides and the beautiful landscapes as we ride along. Buyna, Derem & Baija became a part of the travel fun too!
