We had an amazing 2D1N getaway in the Mongolian yurt! It was the most adventurous, fun, educational holiday, and we enjoyed every minute of it even though it was raining cats and dogs! The yurt is beautifully crafted, the interior bright and colourful, beds are so comfy and the outdoor area is awesome - pure adventure in the midst of lush greenery with a feeling of being far away from the city. The Beyond Expedition Team - Scott, Kavita and Kelly - was amazing! Friendly, warm, outgoing, and passionate to make this getaway a memorable one for our family! Thank you so so much, we had lots of fun and enjoyed our time to the fullest! We highly recommend this trip for everyone who wants to reconnect with nature, do fun activities as a family, and disconnect from modern city life to recharge your batteries!

Unique experience of a stay in a Mongolian yurt. Our hosts Scott & Kavita were very knowledgeable, interesting and enthusiastic. The fun activities also tested our abilities but worked well for our son too. Great experience, thank you

will start with what i think are bad: accom; i booked the yurt thinking i get it all to myself to share with my family of 4 of us only to be notified that we will be sharing with another person and then, 3 single beds and the rest were stretcher type of bed which was super uncomfortable to sleep in; lights above the yurt was too bright and hence difficult to shuteye nature; plenty of sandflies bite on the legs as we all discovered the next day that was all basically the downside of the experience food; its delicious vegetarian, thanks to Kavitha's awesome cooking outdoor activities; Scott has a very engaging personality and his knowledge on bushcraft really made it a memorable stay for all of us Kudos to the team at BE! (but maybe you guys should highlight about the accom sharing with other people especially amidst covid)

I took my teenagers and a nine year old girl for bonding. I was afraid that this will be “not cool” for them as the camp was in still in Singapore. At the end, all the girls could not stop thanking me. Scott, Kavitha, Ishani and Kelly were friendly and made us feel like we were their friends. We had a great time trying out different activities that I would not normally allow the kids to do like using a machete and a saw to cut the woods and setting up fire from scratch. Scott did make sure that safety was their priority. Food By the head chef Kavitha was simple yet delicious. The tent and the furniture were beautiful. I could turn the two portable aircons so cold 🥶 that I woke up to adjust the temp (Scott would say “I told you so”). At first, I feel that the price was high comparing to a staycation in a hotel, but the experience and the hospitality is unmatched. It is worth every penny.

(1) Our guide, Scott, is very friendly and very easy-going with a good sense of humour. He started off the group tour with an ice breaker - introductions with small backgrounds regarding each member of the tour were said so we could get to know each other. During the activity, Scott made sure he got to know each one of us on a personal level by making 1:1 conversations. (2) Not only were we fed information re: history of Fort Serapong, we were also given fun activities to do as a group. It was a nice way of interacting with each other! (3) A photographer was with us and she took awesome photos, which were shared via Google drive the next day. (4) This activity is highly recommended, as it’s a place one wouldn’t think of when in Singapore.

Amazing trip through the bunkers! Our guides were super knowledgeable and very friendly. They took awesome photos and ran some super fun challenges while we were down there. Can’t recommend this enough! We won’t ever forget exploring these tunnels! Thank you Scott!

We really enjoyed this off the beaten-track experience! That was amazing to be back in nature again, see some wildlife, get muddy and explore even more! Scott has been an amazing guide to us, very friendly and we felt comfortable and safe with him. I would definitely recommend the tour to any explorer who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of the CBD :)
