These types of trips are semi-all inclusive; contact us for further details.

ATTENTION: GER to GER has “never” operated “nor” supported “nor” has it ever been associated with any/all rural exploitative and nomadic culture/traditional lifestyle damaging practices of “Ger Hostels/Ger Guesthouses” . HENCE, all GER to GER’s rural nomadic “Live Like a Local” networks are locally designed “Packaged Cultural Adventures (Realism) with Itineraries” that (as a Social Enterprise) incorporate numerous nomadic families, activities, etc., along off the beaten paths a.k.a. “nomadic family’s own routes” (generally speaking, “intentionally far away” from any/all Ger Camps as GER to GER 100% respects/supports Ger Camps’ incredible-remote investments, endeavors, etc.). GER to GER’s “Live Like a Local” is 100% a non-competitive threat to Mongolia’s Ger Camps but rather GER to GER also includes numerous ‘Ger Camps’ into our GER to GER Packaged Trips, Expeditions and Customized Experiences. “Live Like a Local” indeed has a very clear, transparent and strong Social Economic Development Goals/Plans/Methodologies to advance/strengthen incredibly important rurally remote supply chains, destination development, etc.; as part of our Social Economic Stabilization Mission.

“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.”

“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!”
