We visited Tibet with Windhorse Tour on the Everest Base Camp tour in early November. It wasn't too cold. I thought it was the best time of year to go to Tibet (if you are not trekking). We had beautiful weather for our day at Everest Base Camp. Our guide Tenzin and driver Cherpa were awesome! Tenzin's knowledge of Buddhism and Tibet was very impressive and really allowed us to understand everything we were seeing. Tibet is not crowded in November and we saw more Tibetans than foreigners or Chinese which was great! Murphy was fantastic working out all the details for the trip and especially in arranging and handling the delivery of the Tibet permit. Getting the permit is very complicated but everything went smoothly once we started our trip. If you are going to Tibet, I highly recommend the Windhorse Tour to Everest Base Camp with return to Lhasa. NOTE: I do not recommend the tour that goes overland to the Nepal border as the road on the Nepal side is very very bad. If you are going to Nepal after Tibet, it's best to fly to Kathmandu from Lhasa.

Hi PhillipKoza,

It’s great to hear such a positive feedback from you! We’re so happy to know that you had a great trip in Tibet with Tenzin and Cherpa. We always use the Tibetan guides for our groups because we believe that no one knows their culture better than locals. The overland tour from Lhasa to Everest Base Camp is once in a life time experience, and it’s our honor to be a part of it. Our team is looking forward to hearing from you again in the near future.

Windhorse Tour was very collaborative in planning our visit to China: they answered quickly any our question or doubt, they satisfied our wishes about itinerary but also suggested something new or different. On the road we had always their assistance if needed. Cars were comfortable and efficient; drivers and guides were very professional. One regret: no chance to talk with the drivers: we dont speak chinese, they speak chinese only.

Overall, this agency provided excellent service. But, the accommodation in EBC and Namsto were disappointed. EBC, 10 of us slept in the same camp, while earlier arrangement was 8 only. in Namsto, the hotel provided bad service, did not want to provide hot water, and the bed heater was not function properly.

Hi AlvenLoh,

Thank you for your valuable review. Your honest feedback is very important for us to improve our service and better meet our future clients' needs.

Thanks for sharing the negative points for the accommodation in E.B.C and Namtso Lake, please kindly note that both places are the remote area with very limited condition, so the lodges there are very basic. However, I believe that the situation will be better as more and more tourists heading to Tibet.

In addition, we will very look forward to meeting you again somewhere in China, and please keep us in mind.

Hello Xvilalta,

Thank you very mush for leaving your comments here. It’s our pleasure to help your family to organize this trip. Travel in Tibet during the Shoton Festival was a wonderful opportunity to get a better understanding of the local culture. I hope that was a rewarding experience for you and your kids. I’ve heard a lot of good things about you from our local team, and thanks for sending us your photo with Toni, you guys look great.

Please do keep us in mind when you plan your next trip to Tibet or any other places in China.
