    I wanted to thank the entire Amicus team for fantastic tour and excellent travel arrangements. I have enjoyed my time in Mongolia and it was a delight to learn about Mongolian culture and customs. I would highly recommend Amicus for your trip to Mongolia. First of all, working with Jamaa was a pleasure and she was very responsive and helpful with planning my trip. Further, she was very understanding of my personal health circumstances, which fortunately resolved before the start of my trip. Our guide, Ariunaa, and driver were both fantastic and I am thankful for their care and guidance throughout our trip. I would highly recommend Amicus for your travel in Mongolia! What a great team - thank you!

    This trip was more than we could have expected. Started off being met by our guide at the airport and taken to our hotel. The town guide was great for the period we were there. Decent English. The hotel was average at best but you really do not spend much time there. We then did tours of the city and then spent a half day at the Opening Ceremonies for the Festival. The parking lot scene outside was great as we were able to buy local items and taste local food. We then traveled out of the town in nice vehicles to watch the horse races. Very interesting, I do not think one racer was over 10 years old. It was a beautiful scene and we got lots of great pictures. Then it was off to the Gobi. The flight down was hassle free but packed. Very limited flights down to that area and lots of tourist heading down. When I say lots, I mean like 40. We were met there by out driver and a guide. They were the best! Both grew up in nomad lifestyle and gave us lots of great information. The sights were unreal, hours of driving on flat desert land without another living being in sight, beautiful valleys, unbelievable sand dunes, camels, horses, rock climbing and dinosaur bone digging. Sleeping camps were clean, restrooms were fine and dining was actually pretty good. Did take a leap of faith to drink the fermented mare milk, but learned to enjoy it. In all, I highly recommend this trip with this company. They were top notch and very knowledgeable.

    The services provided by Amicus Mongolia Travel were excellent. Our travel consultant, Oyunaa was very efficient and helpful and our Ulaanbaatar and Gobi guide were very knowledgeable and spoke good English. Our Mongolia highlight was the Nadam festival and Gobi desert. We went for the Nadaam. The opening ceremony was fantastic, as too was the Festival horse race. The Gobi desert is not just sand dunes. It diversifies bizarre rock formations, canyons, the Gurvansaikhan mountain range and sand dunes, as well as forests of small saxaul trees and other desert vegetation. Most of the populations have a nomadic lifestyle, frequently moving with their round white felt yurts (Ger) and herds of camels, goats and horses. This trip is a fascinating cultural experience. Our visit in Mongolia was very new experience and enjoyable thanks to Amicus team and we have no hesitation in using their services again in the future.

    I reserved a 14 day tour of Europe and mistakenly reserved and paid for the wrong tour date. Realizing what I had done I contacted TourRadar and they rectified the situation rapidly and efficiently. A refund was issued for the monies not used and I am so far a very satisfied customer. I hope that the actual tour will go as nicely, and I will be very happy.
