We can't thank Tibet Travelers enough for our fantastic tour. Tenzin was great to organize the tour, answer all our questions, get the permit etc. Our guide, Kelsang, was wonderful: he was very knowledgeable, extremely nice and took very good care of us, as did our driver Pelchog, who also spoke English and was always cheerful. It felt like being a family after just a few days and were so sad to leave! We have especially fond memories of our 3-day trek together, doing the wonderful khora of Mount Kailash. The tour is also well planned to get accustomed to altitude progressively. There are so many highlights: the Potala, Sera monastery, the amazing library of Sakya monastery, Mount Everest, the Ngari desert, Mount Kailash, lakes Yamdrok and Manasarovar, the Tashilunpo... Thank you Kelsang, Pelchog and Tenzin, Tibet will always be in our hearts thanks to you.

From USA, couple, ~30 years old.

Overall: Very well organized, enjoyable trip to Tibet courtesy of Tenzin's organization, Karma's information and guide service. Trek was highlight of our trip, with great food from Kalden our cook, and support from Mingmar, the yak man.

Summary:

The trip went smoothly from start to finish, with excellent help from Tenzin in securing required Visa, train tickets, and other administrative requirements. The hotel (included in total price) was very nice, even nicer than we would necessarily have needed, and all transportation was arranged and provided for. No hiccups. Our guide, Karma, was informative and very fluent in English - necessary since neither of us spoke Mandarin or Tibetan with any fluency. Karma was particularly helpful in educating us on Tibetan Buddhism, a subject I knew almost nothing about. That education made our visits to monasteries and religious sites more meaningful, and by the end of the trip we were able to pick out and identify religious artifacts and sculptures thanks to Karma's previous teaching.

The highlight of the trip was our trek from Tsurphu monastery to Dorje-Ling nunnery - frequently called the Tsurphu - Yangpachen trek in guidebooks. Food on the trek was provided by our cook Kalden, who was always quick with hot tea in the morning and at the end of a long day. More importantly, Kalden cooked a great masala potato dish, in addition to tasty fried eggs in the morning and various other vegetable dishes in the evenings. Also worthy of mention was our yak man, Mingmar, who lived in the village we stayed in the first night of the trek, and was kind enough to allow us to stay at his home instead of camping in the area for night (he also shared his cured yak meat with us). I just wish we were able to trek around the 4500m+ area with as much ease as Mingmar, who seemingly had no limit to his daily walking distance.

All in all, we had a great time in Tibet thanks to Tenzin and all the rest, and would highly recommend to anyone planning to visit the country.

Since the great news that norwegians was again allowed in Tibet, Tenzin helped us with all the paperwork to get the permits, and kept us informed all the time. Arriving Lhasa, Tenzin personally received us and assisted us with everything we needed (Which is quite a lot when noone speaks english, and all signs are only in tibetan or chinese letters). We had a highly emotional time in the temple in old town, where the people keep their strong traditions and pacific culture and we could notice how people have hopes and worries for the future. Potala Palace was amazing, one of the most imporessive palaces I have ever seen. The guide was calm, and spoke only where it was necessary, that was perfect for us to be able to feel the athmosphere in such a special place. We also enjoyed the last day at the lake to see the beautiful scenery of the northern part of the Himalayas. And we had a great and meaningful conversation with Tenzin the last day before departure. Great Service.

Land of Snows is top of Lonely Planet’s list of useful websites and asked how to find a suitable Tibetan tour operator they immediately suggested two companies. One had a reputation for giving prompt and precise replies, which they also did on this occasion. The other was much slower and we were ready to place our order for an overland journey from Lhasa to Kathmandu by the time the second company came round to reply.

Tibet Travelers (sic) arranged a tour for a “small group” and promised to provide English speaking guide and driver. Norbu and Pal Gor, who both come from the Mount Everest region, often chanted their prayers quietly while driving across the Tibetan plateau and they took us to interesting villages en route. Being the first tourists of the season Tibet Travelers completed the tour although my wife and I (73 and 78) were the only guests when there should have been a minimum of five. Very generous.

Everything was well organised and we can highly recommend this tour operator.
