In a German travel book the authors say that the Mongolian tourist guides are “unprofessional” turn up 6 to 7 hours after the agreed time’, drink ‘heavily’, ‘can never be made to keep the agreed itinerary and as a tourist – they say – “you have to supervise and control each and every detail” (Barbara Stelling / Fred Forkert, pp. 280f.).
The most common English guide book warns of the ger camps,, pretending they are “never good value”, the beds are rather “smallish” cots”, “the towels … smaller than a handkerchief”, ”the food” is “rarely a culinary delight” (“drinks … never … cold and … always … expensive”) -”and the toilet paper” has always “run out” (Bradley Mayhew, pp. 95f.).
Nothing of all this creates a true picture of tourist service provided by INTOURTRADE!
During our three-week trip from Gobi desert in the South to Lake Hubsugul in the North both our guide and our driver fulfilled the agreements of the contract and met all our wishes. They were always on time highly reliable and competent and they (not we!) took care of “each and every detail”. Except for the inevitable glass of airag for us (!) no alcohol has been consumed.
Even additional wishes – like the one for a fried marmot or a photo permission in a place where, in fact,, it had already refused been ? were fulfilled. The unavoidable hitches were rather enrichments than disturbances and led, e.g. to an unforgettable overnight stay in the “summer house” of a nomad f family.
The ger camps chosen by INTOUIRTRADE count among the most comfortable, meals were rich and tasty, drinks included and none of the nastiness mentioned in that English, guide book were true.
The well thought-out planning of the trip by INTOURTRADE, our competent companions, the comforts not only of ger camps but also of the Chinggis Khan Hotel in Ulaan Baatar helped to make each day of our trip become an unforgettable experience as well as the beauty and diversity of the Mongolian landscapes and the friendliness of the people we met.

This is a “fan” letter – a letter of praise to three wonderfully talented people who have enriched the lives of John Mulligan and Nanette Eklund this year.
Munya and Bold, I am such a “fan” of you two. No one hears the story of John’s illness without hearing how you two saved his life. You really did. I wish I could tell the staff at the hospital how much I admire all they did in the three days he was there.
I have just finished Jack’s book ?Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World? which he gave to us when we had the opportunity to sit in on his class at Macalester on Oct. 13th while in Minnesota. We might never have known what we would have missed if you, Munya, had not shown us the book and given us Jack’s card while we were in the office of Intourtrade Co., Ltd. in May.
First I want to tell you, Jack, you write history in such a way that it is delightful reading. I just didn’t want the book to end! Also, I learned so very much. As is true of too many “westerners” I really did not know the history you tell of in the book. I feel that I have had so many gaps filled in my knowledge.
After reading Jack’s book and looking over the booklet you gave us on Intourtrade Co.,Ltd tours I said to John that we will have to go back to Mongolia, I do hope we can. (Bold you never told us of your background – history and political science were my undergraduate majors.)
Again, thank you to each of you – you have made a difference in our lives!
