We joined 10 Days Lhasa-Everest Base Camp- Namtso lake with Tibet Highland Tours and it was excellent. It's always my dad's dream to go to Tibet and finally his dream came true, in such an incredible way. I am glad that chose Tibet Highland Tours, their well designed itinerary and brilliant service left
us the memory for life.
They are a lovely team with group of beautiful people. Passang has been my consultant from the start and he is very patient and prompt with every of my question. He has tried to give me as much detail as I need. Tibet is a special place with a totally different culture and all different rules, I asked many questions before hitting on the road to ensure a stress-free trip like many of the Tibet first timers. Passang was polite and patient with all my concerns. But I would not have worried so much if I knew this was such a great and experienced agent. Lobsang was our tour guide and he is a young man that ready for his clients at all times. He is a little shy, but it doesn't mean that he is not a good guide interpreter. We were all benefited from his knowledge, especially when there were many aggressive souvenir sellers along the way and Lobsang gave us all the tips needed for an enjoyable time.
Nice breakfast provided every morning, comfortable accommodation with 4 stars at the majority, experienced driver Zhaxidawa gave us a very safe journey, all these are indispensable parts to make an unforgettable experience, along with the amazing and second to none scenery of Tibet!
The only thing was when we were being transferred to the airport. We were supposed to be sent directly to the airport by the tour organiser but got sent to a bus station instead, they asked us to take the airport bus ourselves at their expenses. They put us in a taxi and prepaid for us in the end but we got held by the taxi driver as he tried to get more passengers on the road to go together before he wanted to leave. Our tour organiser had to pay some additional fare to the driver to get us on the road eventually. It wasn't the biggest drama, and the tour organiser has been responsible that they stayed at the station until saw us leaving with the taxi. But we got stressed as we needed to catch the flight and the taxi driver was not a friendly looking guy, we were just hoping that in good hands and get to the airport on time with no other issues on the way. This could have been a smoother ending if the tour organiser arranged in a better way.
Overall, Tibet Highland Tours is highly recommended to anyone who wants to see Tibet with a tour, for their itinerary, experience, no forced shopping at all, small group are all the reasons that you want to choose them.
