Hi AHStryd, Thanks for your info with regards to your trip to Mongolia. May I know roughly the rate of the whole tour? As I am planning to take my son for his 21st birthday. If it is cheap, will be great as this is a dream come true for him. Can we customize the tour as I have a budget. Your help will be much appreciated. Thanks Judy
