OUR TWO TRADITIONAL STYLES

1. LIVE LIKE A LOCAL (Nomad)! REAL.lifestyle adventures

“Experiencing Cultural Fengshui by Exploring Cultural Diversity”

GER to GER cultural adventures are an “in-depth self exploration of reality” that will take YOU across vast deserts, mountainous river valleys, incredible steppe lands, and even across Ulaanbaatar City to explore the imperfect perfections of nomadic and urban lifestyles.

You’ll have 100% REAL.cultural adventure experiences as some of our nomadic families are traditional while others are meshing their lifestyles with today’s world; it’s a REAL.mix of families who are both shy and distant as well as full of energy and hospitality…  YOUR goal is to experience both, try to comprehend and navigate these mixed environs skillfully like Marco Polo – well at least try too – YOUR experiences within these very basic tribal environs greatly depends on YOU.

WHAT DO PEOPLE THINK ABOUT US?

“The best choice for a tour in Mongolia”
– Trip Advisor Review

“If you are thinking to take a tour in Mongolia this is the place to shop. Forget about all other agencies that offer traditional touristic tours with a English speaking guide, sleeping in tourost camps, etc. Ger to Ger will place you in real nomadic family without a tour guide so you will be on your own, sleeping in real gers with family, eating with family etc.  I took 2 humanitarian tours (Dairy and Gobi) and no doubt one of my best experiences in my life.”

ABERRATIONS DO HAPPEN;

even tech giants like Microsoft Windows, etc., are not free from aberrations… Nobody is Perfect.

 

We believe in good ole HONESTY; from 10,000+ SUCCESSES – less than 2 DOZEN haters and a handful of trolls… If we weren’t a ‘somebody’ – we wouldn’t have trolls… it’s a “right of passage”, the MASTER of anything has tried/failed/succeeded more times than the critic 😉

“A truly Mongolian experience”
– Trip Advisor Review

“If you want to get an idea of what traditional life in Mongolia is like while also staying off the beaten track, this is the place to book a tour. I did a three day tour in the Middle Gobi region and a 6-day tour in Bulgan Province. I stayed in Mongolia near the end of april, which is a good time temperature-wise. Both tours greatly exceeded my expectations, as did the service provided by GerToGer…”

“…I thoroughly enjoyed staying with these people and want to thank GerToGer. These tours were the best combination of feeling safe (knowing you can always call them in case of emergency) and experiencing something real and unique. Definitely a highlight of my travels, you can’t miss this if you are visiting Mongolia!”

CLIENT SUITABILITY

Please kindly note that GER to GER is refined for the more ‘responsible’, empathetic, open minded, non-judgemental and non-touristic type of travelers and explorers who do not have the typical ‘touristic expectations’ that desire something truly unique that is much more towards the exploration of the non-touristic and/or “REALITY” aspects of cultures, countries, environs, geographic terrains, etc…
