Hey Wonder,

Everything was very good, yes. Thank you for that. I am also happy to provide recommendation on TripAdvisor.

Hey Wonder,

Sorry for the late reply but the trip was awesome for us! I think we both had a good time. The only thing I wish that maybe was different was the grasslands, we thought we’d see more sparse land rather than an organized villa kind of thing. Otherwise the rest of the trip was great, our driver was awesome and timely and Herry was also super sweet and got everything organized perfectly for us! We really got to know him. Thanks!

A friend of mine wants to book Inner Mongolia, so I’d like to share your contact. Can you add me back?
