May 26, 2014.  Mongolia Stopover

We arrived safely in Beijing earlier tonight.

Everyone just loved Mongolia and Joe - our trusted guide!
 
After so many months in the planning, we finally made it to Mongolia!  It exceeded our expectations.  Everyone is so friendly and the country is very interesting.  
 
My compliments and appreciation to Selena Travel for the excellent services!  What a great tour company!!  I feel like I have trusted friends in Mongolia!  Hopefully we can work together again in the future.
 
I have submitted a Trip Adviser review.  As you know, they have to approve it before making it public.  You should be able to see it in the next few days.
 
Thanks again for the nice hotels, wonderful meals, the neatest ger camp ever and everything Selena did to make that portion of our Trans Siberian trip a success!

Aug 30, 2013.  Discover True Mongolia

Good day!
 
I  wanted to write to you today to tell you how much I absolutely enjoyed my trip to Mongolia! I cannot say enough about Joe and Baagii and how wonderfully they took care of me throughout the 3 weeks. Joe's passion for Mongolia is evident in his teachings every day. Every day he taught me something about the culture, the people, the animals, or the land. It was quite a lesson!! I will tell anyone who wants to travel to Mongolia about Selena Travel. I felt like I was spoiled the entire trip!
Thank you very much : )

“Adventure Mongolia, South Gobi and Lake Baikal, Siberia” We were two retired adventurous women from the United States whose destinations were Mongolia and Lake Baikal, Siberia - 17 days in September 2012. Initially, we were a little anxious using a travel agency, Selena Travel, that did not have a direct United States contact. However, over several months, through the Internet, personal contacts and numerous e-mails back and forth with Selena Travel, they indeed won our trust. Selena Travel responded promptly to our e-mails. They were patient, professional, detail-oriented and knowledgeable coordinating our wishes and their recommendations that ultimately provided to us a fabulous travel experience exceeding all expectations. Our trip included touring Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia; west toward Karakorum, the ancient capital city of Mongolia; then east to Hustai National Park, renowned for its successful reintroduction of the Przewalski horse; south to the Gobi Desert; back to Ulaanbaatar and north on the Trans-Siberian Railroad to Irkutsk, Siberia; and on to Lake Baikal, Siberia, the earth's deepest and oldest freshwater lake. For much of the trip, we were just two passengers, an English-speaking tour guide, private car and experienced driver. What a way to travel! Mongolia is not an easy country to visit. It is not a clean, glitzy, fancy, unpolluted, sophisticated English-speaking region. Also, from the U.S., a Russian visa was arduous to obtain. However, if you desire a fun, unique experience; are open to learning about different and mostly unspoiled cultures, e.g., foods, sleeping in gers (tent-like structures); accept with bright eyes bumpy stretches of vastness; then, you will enjoy a Mongolian//Siberian trip planned at a reasonable cost by Selena Travel! From the steppes of Mongolia, the spinning wheels of Buddhist believers, the colors and images inside decades old monasteries, sounds of horse-head Mongolian fiddlers, taste of yak-butter tea to the sight of sheep and camel herds with their nomadic owners, our trip was a feast for all senses! I highly recommend Selena Travel, especially trip coordinator, Crystal, and tour guide, Davaa, for their pride and commitment showing foreigners this fascinating and unique region of the world.

Just wanted to tell you that Megan and I greatly enjoyed our tour out to Dadal and back. Probably one of the nicest aspects of the tour was our guide and driver. Ganaa was exceptionally knowledgable not only about the various sites but also about Mongolia itself. Baaska was a truly magnificent driver in all kinds of terrain and with all kinds of challenges. Plus these two were clearly a great team. We were so lucky to have them both. Thank you very much. Happy Children's Day. Megan and I are off to see a noon concert of Mongolian fiddlers. Dan

Jun 26, 2008. Holiday with Nomadic family In the event you haven't noticed it, I have a love affair going with Mongolia. My third visit within two years clinched it for me. I can't think of a better place to spend my vacations than your country. As in prior years, my fourth Holiday with Nomadic Family was an unmitigated success. Ariunaa tirelessly translated, cooked and cared for me and educated me about the intricacies of Mongolian culture. The Ganbolds and their friends made me a member of their horse racing team and we had the best time preparing our horses for Naadam. More than anything else, it is their friendship that will bring me to Mongolia over and over again. I thank you Zola for all your assistance and support. Count me in again for next year!

Oct 02, 2011. Mongolia national parks tour As to my stay in Mongolia, I had a fabulous time and the tours definitely exceeded my expectations. Ulziisaikhan did a superb job with the itinerary. From the time he and the driver picked me up alongside the train to when I was dropped off at the railway station I always felt that I was in good hands. Ulziisaikhan was not only incredibly knowledgeable and a walking Mongolia history book, but he was also entertaining, funny, and a good travel companion. I have had so many people ask for pictures (and as your guide knows, I took a lot) that I am currently building a website of the entire trip and it will feature my time in Mongolia because it was the most memorable. I will also recommend Selena to anyone desiring to do a similar trip. You have a very professionally managed organization and take wonderful care of your clients. Mongolia was definitely the highlight of my three country trip and I will have fond memories of my trip for the rest of my life. I should also add that the driver did a great job too. We covered a lot of miles together and he was safe and very accommodating regarding my requests to stop for pictures, etc. We didn not have much time for shopping so I was glad that we made the stop at the cashmere shop. I purchased 6 scarves that have been very well received by the recipients. Exceptionally soft and high quality. Better than any I have seen in the U.S. They were also very easy to carry since I did nothave much extra space. I traveled with 2 backpacks this time plus a camera bag so I didn t have any room for any large purchases. For gifts for the children, I took several finger puppet animals I bought on ebay. The children we gave them too were all very happy. I enjoyed meeting the Mongolian families. Finally, your choice for a hotel was absolutely perfect. The room was nice and clean, the staff pleasant, and wi-fi was always available. It was also well-located. I took walks in the evening to the pizza parlor, etc. I would be glad to put the above in your form if you like. Dont know why I couldn t open it.
