We went on the 10 day private tour from Lhasa to Ganden and Mt Everest to Nepal – in short, our journey was amazing! Arriving in Lhasa by train on 7 April, we were greeted by our guide Dolma and driver Phuntsok. Dolma is super energetic, friendly, and as a genuine Tibetan has great knowledge about Tibetan culture and history, and always took good care of us. Phuntsok drove safely, and with his limited english we still felt like we got to know him. Dolma adjusted the original itenerary to suit our needs the best, and to show us some great things she cared about. Dolma and Phuntsok were also helpful when one of us got sick, and we had to stay an extra night in New Tingri.

Travelling with a local guide like Dolma, you will be lucky enough to meet and communicate with munks, nuns, and locals, since Dolma knows a lot of them, which makes for a unique experience. We saw a lot of monestaries, mountains and met with local people. We were lucky too see Mt Everest with a clear view, and that was a very rewarding day with camping in a tent a few kilometers from the base camp. Initially, this tour may seem like a highlight of touristic places, however it is not – except from the Potala, we were rubbing shoulders with pilegrims and locals alike all the way to the Nepal border!

Tenzin helped us all the way to Tibet by answering our every question via email, and we had a great meal with him upon our arrival. In essence, to get a feel of what Tibet is really all about do NOT go with a chinese tour company, go with Tibet Travelers!

Since getting a visa to visit Tibet is complicated Tibet Travelers was most helpful in helping me get the correct visa and planning a great trip. Ongoing communication with Tenzin was great. The hotel I stayed in was comfortable, clean and had a great restaurant for breakfast and dinner if I stayed in. The tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of Tibet and the development of Buddhism in Tibet throughout the centuries. I greatly appreciated the stories and the silence as we walked around the temples with the pilgrims. The trip exceeded my expectations and I would recommend this tour group to anyone.

My friend and I booked a private tour with Tibet Travelers for November, last month of the low tourist season in Tibet. I did quite a bit of searching before going with Tibet Travelers. I specifically wanted to support a true Tibetan travel agency, and this company came highly recommended. Tenzin Dhundop was great. He was very responsive to my many email questions and very patient as I customized and changed the itinerary several times. The Tibet permits were sent to my hotel in Chengdu since I was there visiting the giant pandas. My friend's connecting flight was delayed so we had to rebook our Lhasa flight and stay another night in Chengdu. I also had trouble getting through security since I had two passports (the Tibet permit used the expired passport where I had my 10-year Chinese visa which didn’t match my current passport) but I called Tenzin and he explained in Chinese to the security officers to let me through. Our guide Dolma greeted us at the airport with a white peace scarf for each of us. She told us that we can write our names/wishes on the scarves and leave it at Everest Base Camp for good luck and blessings among the prayer flags and scarves there, which we did. Tenzin met us at House of Shambhala, a colorful traditional Tibetan hotel, and treated us to a welcome lunch (soup noodles with yak meat) with the best homemade masala tea we’ve ever tasted (we tried others later and they didn’t compare). Since we came a day later we had to adjust our itinerary and since most of the tour were monasteries we cut down a couple to ensure time to get to our main destination - north EBC and Rongbuk Monastery, the highest monastery in the world. After exploring the main attractions of Lhasa (Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Dalai Lama’s summer palace, Barkhor Street, Sera Monastery and monk debate), we headed out to Shigatse via Karola glacier and pass, Yamdrok Lake, and Samding Monastery). Before reaching the north face Everest Base Camp we visited Sakya Monastery and there, we were fortunate and honored to have a monk serve us yak butter tea. The only other tourists there were Tibetans visiting for religious reasons. We went up this really high pass to view Everest and visited a rural Tibetan home. The family gave us tea and showed us around their house. We gave them some gifts we brought including T shirts, children's activity books, food and candy. We got to EBC in time for a sunset picture - it was beautiful and majestic, and also super windy and freezing cold! Dolma arranged electric blankets for us so we were toasty warm at night. The next morning we saw sunrise from Rongbuk Monastery (sunset was more spectacular) and said goodbye to EBC. We drove for nearly 2 hours on a dirt road to Old Tingri (all other roads have been nicely paved up to that point), had lunch, then to the border town Gyirong for the night. Our trip ended when we drove to the border control where we were handed off to the Nepali side to get our Jeep for the 7 hour drive to Kathmandu for our next adventure, a 14 day trek to EBC from Nepal. Tenzin arranged a private jeep for us and checked in via WeChat to make sure we arrived safely in Kathmandu. Our Tibet trip was truly special and memorable. Tibet Travelers and our nice, knowledgeable guide Dolma (another Dolma joined us later to pick up another group so we had two female guides) and safe driver Sonam were awesome! I highly recommend Tibet Travelers! Thanks to Tenzin, we left with gifts of Tibetan singing bowls, cymbals and tea. Also thanks to Dolma for taking us shopping for real thangka paintings and Buddhas. These souvenirs, among our many pictures and memories, will remind us of the wonderful experience we had in Tibet. It's a blessing and privilege to be able to take this amazing trip to such an amazing place! Thu-je-che (thank you)!

Visiting Tibet is different from others. Visitors need to apply for 2 visas, the first one is a China visa that is easy to apply for through Chinese embassies. The other one is a Special Tibet Entry Visa that one has to apply through an official travel agency based in Lhasa. It’s easy to find one online.

Normally it would take 5 days to have the visa approved, 2 passengers minimum to form a travel group.

One must have the visa to purchase air ticket to fly into Lhasa. To make all arrangement smooth, one may ask the visa issuance agency to get travel needs including accommodation, local transportation, tour sites including entrance fees.

The tour escort will meet you at the airport upon arrival and it would be the best to listen to what he/she will explain to you all the rules fir your health and safety.

It’s wonderful place to enjoy once in a life time visit. Strongly recommended and don’t miss the opportunity.

I only ended up deciding to go to Tibet a few days before I made an inquiry with Tibet Travelers and other tour companies. I was worried that the tours would be fully booked for the dates I wanted to go, as there was only a month or so to go before the tours started, which turned out to be the case when I contacted Tenzin about an 8 day tour.
He suggested doing a 10 day tour which I was skeptical about doing at first but he convinced me that a 10 day tour would be better and he was right.
The tour included Lhasa, Yamdrok Lake, Mt Everest base Camp and Namtso Lake. We visited many monasteries, temples and passes along the way. Our group was lucky enough to get a clear view of Everest and have a chance to see the Milky Way during our stay.
Our guide was Sonam (from Tingri) and driver was Paljor. The two of them both made the trip an amazing one.
Sonam is a very knowledgeable guy and I learned a lot from him. His explanations and answers were always very detailed and thorough and his spoken English is also very good. He has a very warm and at times fatherly personality which made the group feel very relaxed and comfortable around him. He was very accommodating to the different needs of the people in the group. He organised a trip to listen to a Tibetan doctor and to have lunch with a Tibetan family when group members expressed some interest which was very nice of him.
Paljor was also great, it was nice having a driver who could also speak English. He is a very funny and caring guy always asking if members of the group were doing well especially if he noticed one being quiet or seeming tired. His laughter is quite infectious and made the group feel quite relaxed.
Tenzin is also a nice guy very talkative and open. His emails were always very prompt his advice was helpful and he was nice enough to organise a Tibetan hotpot meal when I inquired about it.
Overall I think anyone thinking about coming to Tibet should definitely do this tour with Tibet Travelers.

Tibet Travellers hire freelance tour guides and drivers for individual trips, but they seem to have a list of trusted contacts who do a really good job. We had two guides and both were excellent. The first, Jamyang, was for the second day in Lhasa and the second, Tsering Gyalpo, for the remaining days of the trip to Everest Base Camp and back. Both spoke fluent English, Chinese and, of course, Tibetan, and were extremely knowledgeable, not just about the places we visited, but about all aspects of Tibetan history and culture. They were also "culturally fluent", i.e., very familiar and comfortable with both Western and Chinese culture, so communicating with them was never a problem. We certainly learned a lot, and they took very good care of us wherever we went, always making sure we had enough food, water, toilet breaks, etc., and telling us what to do to make things go smoothly at the various check points one (inevitably) encounters while traveling through Tibet. Our driver, Choenphel Tsering, though "only" fluent in Tibetan (and some Chinese), was extremely friendly and patient and, also, a very skillful and safe driver! Our contact with the agency, Tenzin Dhondup, met us in Lhasa on the first day of the trip and told us exactly what to expect, then met us again on the last day to check that everything had gone smoothly (it had). He was also on hand via WeChat / telephone call at all times, so we never had any problems on the road. Even before we arrived at Lhasa, he helped us apply for (various) permits for one of us as a non-Chinese to get into the city and beyond, and another as a Hong Kong Chinese to go beyond Lhasa (different permits and procedure required for Chinese and non-Chinese!), and also provided us with advice on how to get tickets of the popular Qinhgai-Tibet train in addition to the many questions we asked. He generally responded to our questions very quickly and precisely. We thoroughly recommend Tibet Travellers, for all tourists from around the world, including mandarin or English speakers from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan (our group was mixed, European and Hong Kong). We also thoroughly recommend Jamyang and Tsering Gyalpo as guides and Choenphel Tsering as a patient, friendly (and safe) driver.

This was the very first trip to Tibet, which has been a dream for past 10 years for us. We were recommended by one of our friend to organize this jorney to Tibet through agency called "Tibet Travelers" by Tenzin Dhondup. Before we came here, he fully described all the information about packages, prices  and documents, which was exceedingly helpful for us. So we choose a guided tour in winter time, arranged by very informative person named by Tenzin. He and his driver have met us at the airport and presented us a white 'khata'( a greeting scarf) as welcome and wish of happiness. It was quite impressive...

So firstly we enjoyed 3 days in Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, by visiting the most beautiful sightseeing such as Jokhang Temple (the most sacred and important in Tibet), Drepung Monastery, Sera Monastery and winter Palace of the Dalai Lama (Potala Palace which we liked the most). A big thanks to Tenzin that he showed us the best dining places. Also he patiently answered to all endless questions we had, separate thank you for that.  

On 4 day we moved to Shigatze town,  on the way to we enjoyed one of the largest lakes in Tibet (Yamdrok lake), we crossed some high altittude passes such as Kampa-la(5050) and Karo-la(5045) also we viewed a glorious glacier.

On this day we should thanks Tenzin for  introducing us to Tibetian cuisine. Yaks Momo I will never ever forget in my life.

On day 5 we've planned to drive to Sakya monastery and it was the very  first time to see Mt. Everest, but becouse of heavy snow that day we were not able to see it. But our driver and guide did not gave up, so we moved further.

On day 6 it was the most plesant and enjoyable since we have seen the view of 4 mountains above 8000 m 'plus', such as Mt. Everest(8848), Mt.Lhotse(8516), Mt.Cho-Oyo (8201) and Mt. Makalu (8463). Also we have expirieced the highest monastery in the world named Rangbuk. In this part I should say that Tenzin is a great example of person who is very kind,  love and compassion, which is the main postulates of buddist religion.  

  The other days have been very fascinating as well, but I dont want to make this review very complicated.

So to summarize our unforgettable backpacking to Tibet we would have to say that Tibet and Tibetans are very unique in this world. We have never seen such a warm smiles and attitude such from them.

One more time thank you Tenzin and hope to see you again either in Tibet, Ukraine or other countries in the world.

We wish you happy journeys, dear travelers, journey which have sense. Only when you  meet people, immerce yourself in culture, learn history and observe nowadays life of the country, in which you travel, your journey became meaningful. Sergii and Lesia

Do not hesitate. You will have a great time with Tibet Travelers. I booked the 8-day EBC group tour with some special requirements as I only had a short amount of days to stay in China/Tibet. Tenzin was very responsive and accurate in the communication, and all my requirements were met without hesitation. He even helped me book my train ticket from Xining to Lhasa, and did not require advance payment, which was very nice. The tour itself was very well organised. The car was pretty new and the driver was, besides always smiling, also a really good driver. However it would have been nice to be able to use the seat belts on the descents from the mountains. But it was not possible because of the seat covers. The guide we had was very knowledgeable and spoke very well english. She did not rush us at all, and I felt very comfortable in her presence. She was passionate, very professional, and added good vibes to the group. I also really liked the accommodations. Decent wifi. Comfy beds. But did not have hot water on two occasions in Shigatse. The other ones in the group did not have this problem, so I guess I was just unlucky. Tenzin took immediate action when I reported this. But this should not be happening in a 4-star hotel. On the final day in Lhasa we had a farewell dinner with Tenzin which was very thoughtful and delicious. The best meal I've had on the tour. Thank you Tibet Travelers for a great trip.

My long time friends and me travel to Tibet in June 2019 from Kathmandu to Kyirong Port, then travel to Tingri, Shigatse, Gyangtse before reaching Lhasa. The whole journey was amazing and wonderful. We were served by the local tour guide Miss Migmar from Explore Tibet. She was professional and well verse of the places of interest in Tibet. Our itinerary, food and accomodation was well organised by Migma.
Also, during our Journey, one of our friends fall sick due to high altitude, Migmar accompanied him to the local Hospital and took care of him throughout the whole journey. Her kind assistances and services throughout the whole journey is deeply appreciated. We will definitely engage Explore Tibet again for our next trip.
