Tibetan Guide or Road to Tibet?

Any thoughts from people who have recently traveled with either agency (in 2013)? We've gotten timely and friendly responses from both, and there is only a slight marginal difference in price. There's a recent review in 2013 about RTT which is not too positive, so slightly nervous about pulling the trigger.

In addition, would you suggest that we book accommodation ourselves or have it included in the package? Woeser from RTT also suggested that the guide will take us around to show us guest houses on the spot and then we can decide, which seems like it'll take time. We're traveling over Chinese spring festival in late January/early Feb which is low season, so I know that accommodation prices are cheaper…would it be cheaper to just bargain on the spot? We're students so we're fine with hostels/budget accommodations.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

We were very happy with Road to Tibet. We did an 8 day tour in October 2013 and were very happy with the accomodations. We especially liked their choice in Lhasa in the Tibetin quarter. I really can't speak to whether or not you should book on their own.

I would ask them directly about that one poor review - I did and was very satisfied with their answer. Feel free to PM me with more questions.
