This trip was fantastic. After covid, it was quite hard getting a permit for Tibet. However the staff at Tibet Vista were persistent and did everything in their power to get the permit for me. On the trip, our tour guides were greatly informative and taught me lots about Tibetan Buddhism. Food was great and accomodation also. Would definitely recommend 🌞

Obtaining the permit for the trip was very last minute. I got the permit through TibetVista the day before the actual tour date. Since the permit was granted so last minute, it would not be delivered to me in time. I had to have it delivered to me in Chengdu and stay overnight in a hotel and have the permit delivered to me there. Here is the first issue with TibetVista. The travel service agreement I signed stated that permit delivery within China mainland is included in the trip fees... however, they charged me 400RMB (~80CAD) to have it delivered to me in Chengdu. The representatives I spoke to about this fee even guilted me, saying they are just trying to make my dream to go to Tibet a reality and I shouldn't ask for the 400RMB delivery fee to be waived. The second problem with TibetVista is that the agent I was working with told me that there were no other travellers on the group tour that wanted to share a room and I would have to pay an extra 840RMB (~170CAD) as a single room supplement fee. This was in the contract that if there were no other travellers to share, you would have to pay. So that was okay. HOWEVER, upon talking to other travellers in the tour group, it turns out there were at least 4 other people (if not more) that were told the same thing... that there was no one else that wanted to share a room and we were all being charged the single room fee. The unexpected and unreasonable fees that TibetVista snuck into an already pricey tour is unacceptable. I would not recommend booking a tour to Tibet with this company. The only reason this is 2/5 rather than 1/5 for the experience is because Tibet is incredible and the tour guide Tashi was extremely knowledgeable and made visiting Tibet an unforgettable experience. To summarize, definitely go to Tibet because it is an amazing experience... but don't book with TibetVista because you'll be paying unexpected fees on top of an already pricey trip.

What a trip! A truly special special place and fantastic trip from start to finish! I won’t run through the amazing spots and hidden treasures we saw - just go and experience them if you can! I want to say a huge thank you to Tour Guide Jigme and our driver Mr Ni! They were fantastic and really made the trip worthwhile! Everything was perfect and organised to an amazing level, especially given the complications of travelling in COVID. Everyday was fantastic with fantastic insights into Tibetan culture and religious practices. It was truly a fantastic experience that I’m so so happy to have undertaken! Everest was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and with good weather and such a fantastic view it was worth the bus rides! It was also just a fun tour - great people and this made travelling as a solo traveller more in enjoyable! Thank you - I can’t wait to visit again!

Unforgettable trip in Tibet. Jigme, our guide and Sima, the driver made us feel like second home. Jigme has great knowledge about the Tibetan and Buddhism history so you can rely on him on any cultural and religious questions. He made always sure we were comfortable and explains in details our program for the day. My favourite was definitely seeing the monk chanting at Tashilunpo Monastery and the sunset at the Everest Base Camp. The hotels and meals were great also. I will never forget my first experience in Tibet, the Holy Land !

This was an incredible trip! Our guide Jigme and Mr Ni the driver were exceptionally welcoming and knowledgeable. We came excited to see and visit Tibet, we leave a little more knowledgeable, in awe and wholly inspired to return again in the future. Highlights included all the monasteries and stories, Everest Base Camp of course was once in a lifetime, but just visiting and seeing the local culture and meeting such wonderful people- we were truly spoiled! Highly recommended and we definitely will be back again!
