Thomas, United States

Terrific, courtesy, conscientious guides-- the tour of a lifetime-- I can recommend these folks with enthusiasm and without qualification. Two friends and I took a three week tour though Tibet-- from Lhasa, along the southern route west, to a three day trek around Mt Kailash, through the Guge Kingdom, then along the Northern route back to Lhasa (cutting south to reconnect with the southern highway). Throughout our guide and driver were topnotch professional-- well informed and always on the look out for interesting stops. Along the grueling three day pilgrimage around Mt Kailash they made pivotal decisions that made the trek do-able. Our guide was especially knowledgeable about Buddhism-- so the tours through the many extraordinary temple sites were all the more eye-opening. Like I said, the tour of a lifetime. Read more

Matthew, Australia

For my second trip to central Tibet I wanted to explore a different area. I had visited Lhasa before and other popular locations. Thoroughly enjoyed my time in Lhasa seeing the Potala Palace again plus some lesser known sights. The historical sites around Samye and Tsedang and some local villages we visited were the highlight of the trip. Tsering was a great guide and his local knowledge of the Tsedang area was most valuable. Both he and the manager Dawa were flexible and accommodating about my itinerary. The driver Ngawa was also very helpful. I can't wait to go to Tibet again. I would definitely recommend this company. Read more

Short but memorable trip to Lhasa, Tibet This was our first trip to Lhasa and something we've wanted to do for a long time. I searched the website for agents in Lhasa and was glad to stumble on Tibet Shambhala Adventure. Dawa was very accommodating and communication with him was via What'sApp. There was a lot of planning needed for this trip and, fortunately, Dawa was always available to talk to and sort things out. We were warmly welcomed in Lhasa by our travel guide, Phuntsok, who was very accommodating and did his best to take good care of us. He'd always show up before time and met every request we put forth. He was also very patient with us particularly when visiting all the monasteries located at various elevations. I only wish we had allowed ourselves more days to explore further out of Lhasa. Perhaps, that is for next time then:-)) Read more
