As Lao Tzu said once, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”, so did our journey to visit the holy land of Tibet began with "Great Tibet Tour" and the rest was history. The entire planning of the trip down to the micro element was curved out by the greatest customer service @Beatrice, who made sure our tour was not only memorable but spiritually uplifting too. Never did I experience in my rover years such detail oriented and customer need focused itinerary before.  More importantly, the service terms and conditions were appealing than most other tours and are aligned with the volatile covid dynamics and travel advisory. There are no shenanigans when it comes to Great Tibet Tour UI, as it has one of the cleanest and friendliest.  I will highly recommend anyone to plan their Tibet tour with "Great Tibet Tour" agency.

The arrangement route is nice, with 3 days at Lhasa for acclimatization. Both the tour guide Lobsang and driver Paksang were excellent in service, helping the visitor with smile, good advice, good information sharing, always provide helping hand when needed. I can see that they carry out their duty with passion from the heart. The itinerary timing was good, with an exception that 2 of our team member have some problem with the breathing when arrived at EBC. After couple of hour, we decided to leave EBC on the same day we reach to ensure the 2 members safety.

The guide provides few options for decision making.

Overall, it is an excellent tour and I would recommend to my friends GTT if they want to come to visit Tibet.

I can hardly think of the right words to thank you for a fantastic vacation in Tibet. I’m sorting out my photos, souvenirs. I come across a tiny piece of paper or a receipt, I remember a wonderful place we went, some warm & friendly person we met or something fascinating that we saw in Tibet. Our guide Dargye is a good guide, he speaks English very well, and he has full knowledge of Buddhism and local culture. We learned a lot from him. Again, thank you for everything. I recommended Great Tibet Tour to my friends.

We joined this tour after we looked into a handful of others. During the 2 months prior to the trip, we have had constant communications with Amy. Naturally there were a lot of questions regarding Visa, accommodations, logistics (traveling also in Silk Road and Nepal). Amy was not only quick in responding - she is also extremely knowledgeable. She provided extremely valuable insights for us to plan this trip well. She was always honest and upfront and never over promised.

The tour itself was excellent - the natural beauty of Tibet is unquestionable. While this is not a trip with 5 star hotels, the accommodations were relatively good and comfortable. The driver was safe and responsible. Julia, our tour guide was well prepared and explained things in great details. While not native speaker - her english is good. Throughout the trip, she took care of us and helped navigated a lot of requests and we felt we could trust her opinion because she was honest.

I was so lucky that I booked the 8 Days Lhasa Gyantse Shigatse Mt. Everest Group Tour with Great Tibet Tour which is the Tibet tour operator based in Lhasa. Some of the travelers in our group booked the tour with the travel agent. It means I use less money but enjoy the same service as them.

My tour guide is Dajie who had a great experience. His knowledge of Tibet history and passion was great. I was very satisfied with how he guided this tour. He took care of all the members of our group.

Traveling on such a plateau with an average altitude of 4000 meters is not easy. But the reward is to see the peak of the Mt.Everest from our Rongbuk guesthouse.

I highly recommend Dajie and Great Tibet Tour.

Me and my father took this tour and it was truly an amazing experience. I really loved Tibet and it's wonderful people, and the guides were just awesome. The girls at the travel agency also really took great care of us, and any issue we had they helped us out with (like getting a China visa).

I truly recommend Great Tibet Tour for your Tibet travels!

I am not used to travelling with a tour, however, since foreigners need to book a tour in order to be able to visit Tibet I decided to book via GreatTibetTour. The tours were very well organized and the hotels we were staying in were clean and super cozy (besides the Mt.Everest Base Camp, that one was quite adventurous^^). The only person that will be able to speak English though will be the tour guide. Our tour guide for the 8 day trip was Tashi, he gave us a really good insight into Tibetan history and culture. WARNING: Be prepared to get altitude sickness though when you are up on 5100 meters, and since places in Tibet are scattered in the whole province be also prepared to spend a lot of time in the car. However, the landscape in Tibet is breathtaking so in my opinion it was totally worth it!

I did the 8-day Lhasa Gyantse Shigatse Mt. Everest group tour. Everything was great and better than I expected. Lobsang was a wonderful English tour guide, who is energetic in explaining the culture & history, and cares about tour members. There is no shopping required, so please remember to tip him well.

Mt Everest Base Camp was a lifetime experience. I can check that off my bucket list. The Himalayan mountains were spectacular. We also got to visit inside the Potala Palace in Lhasa. There were other tours who didn't get you inside the palace -- don't go to those. We got to visit the sky burial site as a bonus to the original itinerary. We only tipped the driver to make it happen. We visited the nomads and their tents. We stopped by a waterfall by the Friendship Highway and chatted with friendly local people from time to time. The tour friends were awesome. The 4-star hotels that I paid a bit extra to upgrade to were in generally good conditions. I am glad I did the tour!

Dear Jesse, Thank you very much for your good review of the Tibet trip arranged by Great Tibet Tour! Yes, we guarantee our tour “No Forced Shopping & No Hidden Cost & No Fraud”. Because we want to bring our clients a best Tibet tour experience -just enjoying the tour itself. You were lucky that got a chance to visit the sky burial site, which is very private.
