*What is a Guaranteed Departure?

After taking time off work, booking your flights and arranging for your neighbour to feed the cat, the last thing you need is for your trip to be cancelled because of a lack of people on your tour. Our guaranteed departures give you the peace of mind to book the tour that suits you.

A guaranteed departure means that the tour will definitely operate on the day it is scheduled and will not be cancelled for lack of participation. All guaranteed departures will run except in the event of a natural disaster or other similarly disruptive event that is beyond our control.

** NAADAM FESTIVAL (11/12 july) : stay 1 or 2 extra day(s) before or after your tour and visit the Naadam Festival, including 1 or 2 night(s) at a 3 stars Hotel + a guide (non private) + grouped transfers + entry fee on the festival (no lunch, no dinner included).
Be aware that the opening ceremony is on July 11 in the morning, so you need to be in Ulan Bator on July 10th in the evening to be able to see it. The rest of the 2 days include competitions on the different playgrounds.

- 200 € for a delivery in Khogno Khan
- 300 € for a delivery in Karakorum, the Orkhon Valley or Arkhangai
- 400 € for a delivery at Lake Khövsgöl or in the Gobi Desert
This cost includes the driver & the vehicle for 1 or 2 days depending on the distance + fuel for the vehicule for the round trip + meals and accommodation for the driver if the roundtrip is more than 1 day.
If your flight is late, the same rates apply if you need a private transfer.
