I did with a group of 8 other foreigners a 7 days/ 8 nights tour organized by Tibetan Guide through Tibet. The itinerary was as follows: Day 1 arrival from Chengdu by plane and free sleight seeing in Lhasa Day 2 Lhasa sightseeing: 1) Jokhang 2) Ramoche Temples Day 3 Lhasa sightseeing: 1) Potala 2) Norbulingka Palaces and group dinner in Lhasa Day 4 Lhasa – Shigatse Tashilompo Monastery Day 5 Shigatse – Everest North Face at Rongbuk: Eco-bus service to Rongbuk Monastery, Everest Base Camp, overnight stay at 5500 meters Day 6 Seight seeing within Rongbuk Monastery – back to Shigatse Day 7 Shigatse – Lhasa Yamdrok-tso lake Karo-la glacier, Pelkor Chode Monastery The entire tour was well organized. We were picked up from the airport without waiting there. The accommodation in Lhasa and especially Shigatse were good to excellent, especially in view of the very competitive price I paid. The tour guide spoke fluent English and was very knowledgeable and gave us impressive insights into the sights visited including an introduction into Tibetan Buddhism. He was also instrumental in passing the various checkpoints on the way without loosing too much time. I can only recommend Tibetan Gude travel agency, not only because of the travel experience itself but especially for obtaining and managing all required documentation and permits. I made several attempts with various travel agencies to visit Tibet, succeeded with Tibetan Guide eventually.

Travel October 8 to 16 2021   We book a Tibet tour (from a national agency) and we end up with Tibetan Guide, I life in China for 12 years and I have being many time travel and got local tourist guide… To be honest most of the time I find the guide a bit clueless and lack of initiative… For the first time in China, I was so glad we got Tibetan guide as our local tour guide… Jampa our local guide from Tibet (she is Tibetan) was just amazing, she have such deep knowledge about her region and culture she could answer any questions (we have a lot of questions and some very complicate one) despite working long hour mostly 8am to 21 pm sometime even mid night… She never complain always keep smilling, he English level is very good too.. One of our friend get Hape (high altitude pneumonia endemia) He have to be put in hospital for 24 hours… She stay with him for 24 hours there, her husband come to help us at the hotel to pick up cloth and bring it to the hospital… the next day the agency reorganize the tour (we need to stay one more night in Lhasa to wait for our friend) and find a new guide for the day and off course no extra charge…. The driver was amazing too, car was sparkling clean every day and he was driving very safe (first time in China where I wasn’t stress to no be driving) when our friend come out of the hospital. Jampa our guide help us find big oxygen tank and despite the risk accept to continue to carry my friend until base camp Everest… We have being able to visit temple on time which supposed to be only open to Tibetan because Jamba know many local peoples and is well appreciate in the Tibetan community… She always stay calm despite our constant request and our last minute change of schedule… We ask for nature she bring us to glacier, we ask to swimm she find us a river in the country side to swim… She grow up in the Potala until 6 years old and she show us the house she use to life… In every temple monk recognize her and are extra friendly with us Every night despite being exhausted she always find

Wonderful trip with our Guide Gelek and our friendly driver also named Gelek. Guide Gelek was very knowledgeable and spoke English fluently. The company was very attentive to our needs and took us to some really beautiful places. Really enjoyed the hotels and restaurants they booked for us. Can’t say enough good things, would definitely recommend them for anyone thinking of doing a tour. Dhondup was great about explaining the process of entry and checked in with us every day to ensure we were having a great time. Love that it’s a small company using Tibetan guides and drivers. Everyone was very kind and made our trip feel very special!

We had a great trip with Gelek (our guide) and Chambel (our driver) on a privat 15-day tour (3 people). Gelek acted as both guide and vegan cook for us during our trekking tour (5 days in total). He read our wishes from our lips without having to say anything and always made sure we’re comfortable and happy. Gelek was very knowledgeable about both nature and culture and ensured that we get a good impression of Tibetan culture. He was very flexible and adapted to the strangest requests we had. I can only recommend him to everyone who wants to take a private tour in Tibet. Dhondup (owner of Tibetan Guide Agency) was very helpful and organized the permits for us very quickly. The entire setup/Organisation went very smoothly.

Joined a group tour with nine people during the national holiday. Tibetan Guide did a great job organizing, everything went smoothly and our guide and driver were also very flexible throughout the trip. The guide Sonam is extremely knowledgable about the sites, and I hope to use again for the next tour to Tibet.
