My friend and I spent three fantastic weeks in Mongolia because of our guide Sony and driver Chuka. They were absolutely fantastic! Driving across the steppes, into the mountains, accross the Gobi, and in the homes of the nomads was an experience I will never forget. This is a land of wonderful people, incredibly beautiful landscapes and a history worth... More

I was conversing with Ms Boggie the whole time and her English was excellent and so accommodating and understanding of our needs. We are family of four with two boys, at the time 6 and 9 years old. My eldest had dietary restrictions and everything was not a... More

With a family with three children (6, 4 and 2 years!) we had an amazing tour through the gobi desert and central mongolia. View Mongolia organized the trip and they did an amazing job. We hiked, rode a camel, rode a horse, went to hot springs and visited an nomad family. The landscapes along the way are stunning, it's very... More

We booked View Mongolia for a 5 day tour of the Steppes on horseback. The company is great to work with and very accommodating. When the posted itineraries didn't work for our schedule, they were happy to customize one just for us. We also thought that the price was very reasonable for a private guide (I don't remember his name,... More

I looked at lots of companies when planning the trip and settled on ViewMongolia.com because of the Trip advisor reviews, and the efficiency of Boggie. I like supporting local companies plus it seemed more economical than the big tour companies, but it never felt like a cheap trip – quite the contrary. I strongly commend the super efficiency of Ms... More

Took a tour through the Gobi deserts passing grassy fields and windy lands. Highly recommended for outdoor lovers and those who loves to wake up early in the morning to catch a glimpse of the starry skies and even watch the milky way.
