In Brief

      Mongolia is truly one of the world’s last undiscovered travel destinations and the safest country to visit. It is a land where you can experience wide-open spaces, cobalt blue skies, forests, deserts, crystal clear rivers and lakes, and the traditional hospitality of the nomads. 
     The tour takes 16 days to cover northern, central and southern part of Mongolia and visit the most popular travel destinations including the most interesting national parks, Khovsgol Lake; the second largest freshwater lake in Central Asia, making up over 1% of the world’s freshwater storage, UNESCO World Heritage Sites; Karakorum and Gobi desert; distinctive landscapes of towering sand dunes, wide open steppes, iced Georges, rocky mountains, red cliffs, stunning sunsets, sunrises and much more!
     Also, the tour combines with the most colorful and amazing Naadam festival; held every year in July and all Mongolians celebrate the three manly sports of horse racing, archery and wrestling. The festival registered with the Intangible Heritage Fund of UNESCO. 
     Relaxing in wild nature and explore Mongolian culture, history and nomadic life style... camel riding, climbing to sand dunes, hiking and feel free driving through the wilderness are the main activities.

Reviews & Feedbacks:

The Golden Circle Discovery with Nadaam tour was the best trip of my adult life.  Mongolia was the only place on my bucket list, and they made it extremely enjoyable, with amazing occurrences daily.
The office manager Tuya is a joy to work with.  She helped us arrange off-tour events to bracket our trip with Amicus.  Her several points of advice were always spot on.
The value of an engaging and hard-working guide is inestimable.  Amicus' choice of Buya shows that they know how facilitating friendly personal interaction between the guide, guests and locals is paramount.  I'm sure there are more knowledgeable guides who could answer more questions. But I'm also sure I would prefer Buya's company, positive outlook, and ability to connect us with the locals over anyone else.  Choosing a person like Buya seems to be an excellent and conscious choice by Amicus.
The vehicles and drivers were great.  We covered 1,300 miles (80%+ on dirt) at an average of 25 MPH.  The lesser vehicles of other tours were slower, and would be unbearable.  The great skills of the drivers kept us safe when, if I were to do this alone, I would have died out there without them.  Do not undertake a substantial tour of Mongolia without excellent local guides and equipment like Amicus requires.
The route was outstanding.  After a substantial drive most mornings, there was a destination worthy of significant exploration.  Indeed, no published material I have found does justice to what you actually see and experience.  The land is bigger, the contrasts are more radical, the ability to interact with the things right in front of you are like nowhere else.  You can milk a yak, butcher a goat, ride a horse, eat camel, play with the kids, touch, photograph, taste, you name it.  This is a very interactive country.
Beyond the particular site, something unexpected and amazing happened each day, so much so that most days, random occurrences were the highlight.  Double rainbows and riotous sunset over Karakorum!  An unexpected local Nadaam horse race in front of the Ger Camp!  Full moon-rise over Lake Huvsgul.  Invited into a herder's ger for a snack and to trade pleasantries.  Buying fresh mountain-picked strawberries from a wizened grandmother.  By the way, the photographic opportunities are phenomenal; bring your best gear and get ready.
The whole operation was well greased.  Amicus and Buya had all of the transactions, issues, questions, and sites well prepared for us.  Essentially, we just walked right up and they were ready for us.  Very professional.
One small warning: This tour is a moderate physical challenge. There will be some light to moderate hiking across broken ground, and if you are unsure of your footing, you may miss key bits.
I can strongly recommend Amicus to future travelers.  In that beautiful, rugged, friendly, amazing country, I am confident that Amicus can arrange an extraordinary experience..

Jamaa, thank you for a well thought out itinerary. It seemed as if you read our minds and knew what we were looking for to experience: culture and nature.
A well planned itinerary requires a good team to implement it and you have a great team to make our adventure memorable.
Khulgee is a very knowledgeable guide. He has a passion for history and it shows in his day to day interaction with us talking about his country. He is a great outdoorsman as well and he accompanied us on all our excursions. In addition, Khulgee is very adaptive and flexible. He knows when to adjust the itinerary to make the best out of the circumstance. He is calm and has a good sense of humour and things are always in order.
Bugi is an amazing driver. He is skillful and he is patient. He takes care of the vehicle, always the first to be at the vehicle and the last to leave it to ensure our ride is most comfortable even during off-road.
Overall, between you, Khulgee and Bugi, Amicus has given us a wonderful experience to cherish forever. I will highly recommend my friends who are interested in visiting Mongolia to go with Amicus.
To those who are reading this and thinking of visiting Mongolia, you will have a great time with Amicus.

“Quite some time passed since we spent a wonderful time in beautiful Mongolia. This tour was extremely well organized. The local guides were often inspirational, and good food and accommodation meant that everything worked smoothly....

Banbas family
Hi Davaa, "I hope you are well. Our trip was fantastic. Thank you so much for your help.
I'd like to give you some feedback.
The guide in Beijing, Tristan, was fantastic. Helpful, well spoken and a lot of fun.
The guides in Mongolia were great too - especially Bogi in the Gobi.
As you might be aware, we had issues with our flights. We missed the connecting flight to Beijing from Shanghai due to a delay with our Sydney flight and we had our return flight from Xian to Beijing cancelled. Hence, we missed 2 nights at Wangfujing Hilton. I am putting a claim in with my travel insurance and need a letter from hotel confirming this happened and also confirming the cost of the two rooms for each of the nights missed. Could you please organize this for me?
Again, thanks for your help in organizing such a great trip.
Kind regards
Conn Banbas

Canada, Aug 04, 2014


We had a fantastic time! I want to let you know that Tour Company were fantastic. Everything went off like clockwork. The guides, hotels, attractions, and itinerary in both Mongolia and China were fantastic. We had no problems what so ever. The guides were there at the airport or docks to meet us every time on time and their attention to detail was great. They all spoke English very well, had great personalities, were well versed in the history and customs of each area and made us feel welcome and safe. They were informed of our upcoming itinerary plans and discussed these with us as well. Flights within Asia also were great. No delays or cancellations. I would not hesitate to recommend or travel with this company in the future.

I just wanted to let you know how wonderful it was. The people at Amicus Travel were wonderful and accommodating. The tour guide, Bayara was very informative and caring, we were like his little chicks, with "Follow me" he lead us to some amazing places and sights.
Our driver was incredible, the way he drove through narrow, winding roads, I have to admit, I did brake sometimes. Thank you again!!
