We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Mid-Inner Mongolia Tours
Are you planning your escape to Inner Mongolia? This is the right place to plan your getaway to the middle area of the huge Inner Mongolia which includes the 5 cities of Hohhot, Baotou, Ordos,Banyannur and Ulanchabu. Mid-Inner Monglia is the most visited area due to its easy access from Beijing by air and train. Though a little industrialised, Mid-Inner Mongolia is still much worth a visit with three well-known grasslands including Gegentala, Xilamuren and Huitenxila, sand sliding at the Resonant Sand Gorge, Genghis Khan's Tomb at Ejin Horo.

The ancient grassland city of Hohhot is teeming with historical and cultural relics such as Dazhao Monastery, Five Pagoda Temple, Xilituzhao Monastery, Great Mosque, Jiangjun Yashu at Suiyuan City and Zhaojun Tomb, which make your trip more interesting and worthwhile.

Traveling on the Mid-Inner Mongolia offers you the opportunity to see the modern Inner Mongolia today, feeling the expansive grassland and touching the ancient Mongolian cultures.

All the tours organized by us fall into two categories - starting from Hohhot and from Beijing. So you may schedule your Mid-Inner Mongolia trip starting either from Hohhot or from Beijing. In addition, all the tours are privately arranged only for you, your family or your friends escorted by a local tour guide and driver.

So, let's Go!
