Tour operators
Most tour operators operate from the capital city Ulaanbaatar.
You can join a scheduled tour of your choice or arrange for a tailor made tour.

Tour durations
1-3 day tours - to nearby destinations like Kharhorin, and Terelj park.
Distances are great, direct drive from north to south takes 4 days, most of the time on dirt roads.
Therefor long tours go for 7 to 18 days.

Transportation
Most tours start and end at Ulaanbaatar which is in the center of Mongolia.
The common option is by land both ways in a Russian van or jeep.
Some go by land one way and take a flight back.
Few go 2 way flights.

Price per person per day
Including local transportation, guide, food and lodging (Ger camps in the country side).
Land tours cost from $110 to $250 average $160

Data: ToMongolia Survey 2011


Last minute tours - budget
Most guest house owners are capable of organizing a last minute tour.
They will call up a driver, (and a guide, a translator, a cook, what ever you ask for).
It will be up to you to find other travelers to share the costs.
This is the common way backpackers on a budget arrange for tours.
The cost would be from $60 to $150 average $110 per person per day
including transportation and camping on the way.

Super budget
If you feel like mixing with the locals, use public transportation.
There are no schedules, when the van is filled to the maximum it goes.
Cost would be about $15 to $40, average $25 per day for transportation and food on the way.
The vans do not stop for sight seeing on the way, they just bring you from place to place.
