Asked by Elizabeth Date Added:
Question: Your questions about our tour package?: Is space still available for either a 2 or 3 day trip to Inner Mongolia during the 2011 Spring Labour Day Holiday? How much is the cost of such a trip? I am currently in Beijing, China, so are train tickets still available? If I do a trip, it will be by myself; can I adjust a travel plan for just one person? I would need help booking a hotel (preferably 3 or 4 stars to save money), but if there are train tickets I can book them myself. But most importantly, I do want to stay in a yurt while in Inner Mongolia!
Answer:

Dear Elizabeth, Planned Tour Date:2011-04-29, Number of Person:1, Interested in:3 Day tour to Grassland-Desert-Genghis khan Tomb;

Thanks for your attention and email to us, but I have to tell you something as below.

1, there is no group tour for this package, but we can arrange it for you own.

3, we can arrange the tour, but you have no chance to stay at Yurt at Grassland, because it is too cold, and all Yurt are closed till the mid of May or beginning of June.
