    Hi Nedine, I am sorry to hear that you still don’t feel we have treated you in a fair way regarding your deposit. When you had to cancel your 2013 trip as you were unable to have your annual leave approved we did agree to hold your deposit initially for a period of 12 months to give you time to sort out your work problems; meaning you would have to book a new trip by march 2014. We then granted an extra 12 month extension to this as when we were talking with you in 2014 you still didn’t think you would be able to book or travel that year. At that time we did make quite clear that you would have had to make a new booking by March 2015 or your deposit would be forfeited. We then we didn’t hear from you again until July 2016 when you asked to book a new trip. Our normal terms and conditions state that any cancellation more than 75 days prior to departure would incur loss of deposit. We understand it can sometimes be hard to plan around your work commitments and we always try to accommodate clients where possible to ensure they can still travel on our amazing journeys. I do think we went above and beyond to give you extra time to organize a trip with us and I am sorry that you do not feel the 2 year extension to our standard conditions was generous enough. I do wish you the best of luck planning your future travels and I hope you find another provider that can help you amongst the many great companies Tour Radar offers. Regards, Sundowners Overland

    Clients also travelled with us to Mongolia after the tour: We also want to mention our subsequent tour to Mongolia and the Golden Eagle Festival in Ulgii. Wow! That was absolutely amazing, from the flight in the Focca Friendship from UB, to our two very exciting days at the Festival and finally two nights staying with the Nomadic family. The whole trip fell in to place like clockwork, even though our itineraries differed from week to week prior to departure!! It really was a great lesson in expecting the unexpected, which is just the way we like it!
