1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Two things: Seeing the Naadam festival. The friendliness and competence of the local staff - two drivers and two cooks. They will remain in my affections forever.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Take a lavalava. It makes an emergency tent when the hot sun is beating down on your head, it can be a towel, a bathrobe, a shoulder covering for temples, a modesty screen when having a public pee stop. Never travel without your lavalava.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I couldn't say. I sought out a fair trade shop myself to buy my souvenirs.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

We had a number of grumblers in our group who made the tour leader wary and distant at times. This made it hard for the rest of us. When he realised not all of us were in the 'grumble camp', he was a lot more friendly and communicative to us. We also had a cyclist fall off and break her arm. She had to be evacuated out - another sobering effect on the trip. Hence my 'very enjoyable' rating below.
