Hello, I have 10 days to spend in Mongolia this upcoming Easter and I am interested in a trip in the desert.

It is not hard to browse the net for Gobi desert tours, but I am a person who do not like if it is too touristy and carefully tailored for tourist needs, but rather have it more gritty and "real" experience even if its a bit uncomfortable and challenging.

I would therefore be interested in locating something more of a freelance guide/tour to Gobi desert that settles for realism, and all tips for such guides or how to find ones are highly appreciated.

Yes, I did. I did eventually settle for a "tour" that due to low season consisted of only me and another westerner, arranged for us by a private guest house so it was still authentic feeling with not touristy feeling.

Is anywhere in Mongolia actually touristy? I always thought Mongolia wasn't that developed for tourism.
