Booked a 2 day ger stay and had a horse ride in Hustai National Park with a family. Pick up from where I was staying was extremely prompt. Beautiful tour... read more of the countryside, and the guide was excellent and very friendly. The coordinator, Nyamka, answered all of my questions leading up to the tour. The food during the stay was good and the host family was very kind.
I would definitely recommend a ger stay with the company to my friends and others in my network.

The tours were well organised and we had a great time. Nyamka speaks excellent English and provides interesting cultural and historical information about Mongolia. Baaska is so sweet that threw a small surpise birthday party for us 🙂 Their tours are flexible and custom made. Highly recommended!!

She did horse riding on the tereji tour, which was good.
Happy to recommend for other travellers.
Only thing to watch for is that museum is closed on a Sunday so better to do the city tour another day.

My friend and I, we are from Thailand did fantastic 8 day horse riding in central mongolia. We learned about them on tripadvisor and tried to find out as much... read more as possible about them as it was very important trip for us. There was not much information about them online, so first we hesitated a bit but in practice they were the best. They customized the itinerary for us and during the trip the guides were so caring and helpful. Horses were nice and calm and the guide always told us local stories which was quite interesting. Horse guide cooked the food for us, to be honest he wasn’t a good cook but we were fine. Overall, this agency is a good company to travel with, will highly recommend.

We had a great time with True Mongolia Travel. What I thought was going to be a standard day tour from UB was anything but! We visited the Chinggis Kahn... read more statue and after that we went to go horseback riding. There happened to be a local party going on and they invited us to drink and play games with them. We had a great time riding horses and they did a good job of introducing my friend to riding horses since it was his first time. The rest of the day went just as well visiting the National Park and the Nomadic Family. I highly recommend this company!
