"Under new management" - made for a fantastic trip

5
We had read the reviews and we were prepared to be hungry, exhausted, tired and wet, however our desire to see Mongolia was so great we signed up anyway. Well, as it turns out, we need not have worried. Upon meeting the crew we learnt that Exodus have appointed a new team / organisation to manage this trip and the result was excellent. Great bikes, great tents, flexible itineraries, informative & safety orientated leadership, showers, sit down pit loos, magnificent food and impeccable service. With the "housekeeping" all in order due to the great set up (4 vehicles to support the journey), it enabled us to really relax into the adventure and the gorgeous surroundings of Mongolia. The cycling was challenging, we believe definitely worthy of more than a 3!! The terrain varied; of the 564km we cycled only 51km was asphalt. The support team were always nearby and the day of cycling was broken up with coffee & snack beaks, sit down lunches and other strategically located stops where we could get off our bikes to enjoy the views. We were incredibly fortunate on this particular trip (July departure) as we got to enjoy the Naadam festival first hand. If you are thinking about going in 2017, we strongly recommend picking the trip over this time of year.

A Great Way to See the Wilds of Mongolia

4
This holiday was certainly a unique experience. Nothing will quite prepare you for the scale of the scenery and the experience of cycling alongside galloping horses or grazing yaks every day which is hard to beat! Apart from the city tour at the beginning and a little bit of time at the end in museums, there was not much chance to do anything other than cycling. We were a little bit disappointed that there weren't many opportunities to interact with the local people, although we did visit one nomad family to sample their dried curd and fermented mare's milk! However I can highly recommend taking balloons with you as the few local kids we met loved them! As a mountain biking novice, the cycling was quite tricky at times so you need to like a challenge but because of this I found it very rewarding. The equipment was good quality and the bikes were cleaned and serviced every night. We were really well looked after for the whole trip. Nothing was too much trouble for the crew and the food was extremely varied and tasty, as well as there being lots of it!

Amazing Mongolia By Mountain Bike

5
For me this has been without doubt the most amazing cycling trip I have done. Mongolia is unlike anywhere else. Wide open rolling countryside and skies. Truly felt away from 'it all.'

A wonderful adventure and exploration of Mongolia, rather than a cycle trip. Leader was flexible when the weather was wet, and we needed to find accommodation. Staff very helpful

The best way to see this beautiful country

I had a wonderful time on this amazing trip. It was truly an adventure full of beautiful landscapes, fun cycling (some slightly challenging cycling, some easy, but always fun), crazy weather, and wonderful people.

An amazing way to experience Mongolia

4
This was an amazing way to experience Mongolia -- the landscapes, countryside, the people. From scaling mountain passes, coasting through the Mongolian Steppe, camping by picturesque rivers and lakes, to visiting ancient ruins, seeing enough goats, sheep, yaks and horses to last a lifetime, and experiencing the hospitality and generosity of the Mongolian herders in their gers, this is a great way to spend a holiday.

Exodus Response

We would like to thank Brian for his review and are delighted to read that he had an amazing trip in Mongolia. We are, however, very sorry to read that the equipment used was not of the highest standard and that this impacted on his enjoyment of the trip. Since Brian travelled we have started working with new local partners and the quality of equipment has been greatly improved; one of our cycling experts, David Sear, has inspected the new equipment personally, and we are confident that it will be well-received by our clients.

Grass. Sky. Yak. Horse. Goat. Bike.

Non-technical off road cycling in an amazing country. Fast hard packed dirt tracks most of the time. The trip was much more about exploring Mongolia than about biking - the pace was very relaxed but the days cycling were quite long as a result. Washing in half a bowl of cold water hidden behind the van was tricky. The group was great - local team were always smiling and helpful. Food was plentiful (four course evening meal) and Erdene did his best to accommodate our suggestions.

An amazing country, "Big Sky" steppe, and excellent mt biking on mostly super smooth dirt with just enough steep and rocky and stream crossings to keep one on ones toes but the logistics needs some upgrades

CYCLING THE EMPIRE OF GENGHIS KHAN

5
A brilliant trip involving reasonably challenging cycling through what must be some of the most beautiful and untouched country in the world - truly the way it was in the days of Genghis Khan (if a little safer!).
