OUR STEP INTO TOURISM
“Travel Buddies” were founded by two sisters in 2009, after working for many years as a freelance tour guide. Throughout the years, both of us found a great joy and passion for adventure tourism and fortunate indeed to turn the passion into a career.
A great joy for us to be found in travelling by 4×4 jeep, battle across the endless steppe on a journey, clearing brain fog away with the open space, camping under the countless stars in the wilderness and chatting with stress-free nomads about the nature, stocks and weather. The idea of founding “Travel Buddies” is to share the joy and adventure with adventurous people and inspire them to create their own authentic experience of Mongolia.
At “Travel Buddies”, we have been sharing a joy and adventure with people from diverse groups and backgrounds and always will!
