Mongolia was my dream and it became a reality during last summer, I came back amazed by the beauty of the landscapes, by unexpected encounters the kindness and hospitality of the Mongols who without knowing us, invited in their yurt to offer us some delicious salty tea or a party - and it was thanks to our guide, professionalism, sense of discovery and resourcefulness that we had a great time and have benefited from every moment. Our guide Bayaraa had planned everything: local and delicious food, accommodation with nomads or bivouac in landscapes of breathtaking beauty and all in good mood. I dream to go back because Mongolia is great and there is so much to discover. Long live Bayaraa and "Nomadic of Blue Sky" team.

I was delighted with the trip to Mongolia, which you organized for us; discovery of the west which is very interesting, and especially of various sites, lakes, villages where we were welcomed in the yurts, by cattle breeders, with a lot of warmth and kindness, approaching the snow-capped mountains, and glaciers !! an endearing nature, as evidenced by the beautiful photos I made, and those received from Sylvie. The beautiful show we saw, beautiful dances and costumes ..! and then all these small markets more attractive than each other, which allowed us to make pleasant purchases .. the day also shop which sealed the end of our trip, and allowed us to bring back beautiful cashmere sweaters ... I'm not referring to your kitchen which was very good, you had to camp the stove and set the table, for the hungry we were !! The essential, however, will remain your kindness, your availability, your competence, and your dynamism !! It was a total success!

We made a three-week trip in 4X4, in the far west of the country, we were 7 people. We can only rent Nomadic of Blue Sky services, both organizationally and materially. Always in a good mood, attentive and positive, always busy to solve small problems. I would add that he/Bayaraa/ was very good French. Thanks to him, there was a great atmosphere. He has great knowledge of him country both culturally and geographically.
