Group Tours / Culture

Classic Mongolia group tours that are well-placed, comfortable, insightful, and balanced – a perfect introduction to the varied landscapes and nomadic culture of Mongolia.

Our trips combine the expected highlights with extra twists and our own special touches that elevate your travel experience out of the realms of other standard tours. Our Mongolian cultural group tours have a degree of flexibility, to allow for individual preferences and interests to be catered for. We also only take small groups – between 8-12 people, depending on the trip.

Extensions can also be added to our group tours to ensure that you don’t miss out on a thing that this fantastic country has to offer.
