Mongolia Small Group Tours 2021
Our Mongolia small group tours are personal, innovative and flexible. There’s no ‘big groups’, ‘must-sees’ or ‘all-inclusive packages’ – just the real Mongolia. Unlike most companies, we only offer a selected number of departures throughout the year as this keeps our experiences fresh and original. It also means that we don’t create a ‘tourist circuit’, spoiling an untouched region. Our maximum group size is six which is refreshingly small for the travel industry. All our Mongolia small group tours are a guaranteed departure with a minimum of two bookings. We charge no single supplements if you’re a solo traveller.
If you like the philosphy and style of our small group experiences but need to adapt by making the trip shorter or adapting the accommodation or adding another location then get it touch and let Jess be of help.
For those interested in travelling with us in 2021 – thank you! We are slowly updating this page with our 2021 small group experiences but please do get in touch for details. We are aware of the impact that the coronavirus is having on our lives financially so for 2021 we are offering as much flexibility as we can including our updated (until the end of 2021) flexible booking conditions as well as keeping 2020 prices through 2021. For the booking conditions and for more on the impact of the coronavirus on travel to Mongolia and what measures we are putting in place as a team and community see our dedicated coronavirus webpage (link). We are also putting in place our ‘Everyone Travels Safely’ strategy which we will publish when ready. We look forward to the day we can remove this note from our website. Jess & the EL team
