Independent reviews about Tibet Discovery

Hi, everyone! We are planning to take a trip to Tibet in May, 2015. We have contacted several agencies, and the one Tibet Discovery(tibetdiscovery.com) seemed to a good choice. They responded promptly, and helped me revise my itinerary from Lhasa to Kathmandu. Before the final agreement, we are trying to find out some independent reviews about this agency. Has anyone ever worked with them?

Hi Not really known about them but it is good to check with them if they are based in Lhasa or they have operation team in Lhasa.

Hi!!! We have been in Tibet last June 2014. I never heard about Tibet Discovery, but I really recommend you our agency, Windhorse Tour. They are experienced, and his guide Kelsang is the best in Tibet. Great person who makes really special our tour. With a high knowledge of Tibetan culture, and a great experience in travels.

Hi Stanley, I am doing the same trip around May 9th. Is yours a private tour ? I would like join a group as I am travelling alone. I am flying into Beijing on April 30th, Train to Xian and train to Lhasa. Continue from Kathmandu to Goa, Kerala Returning to Ireland on 11th June. I had contacted been in touch with Tibettravel.org, Tibettanguide.com and Snowlion tours. The first two were impressive in their responses. Based on review and first hand experience from another Irish traveller I am leaning towards Tibettanguide. If there are 3 or more people a Private Tour is Ideal and cost effective.

Love to hear from you

Hello Wilson,

We used Dhondup of Tibetanguide.com for our family trip to Tibet and EBC this past July 2014 and we were extremely happy with his services. We also got quotes from several other agencies and chose Dhondup based on the excellent reviews, his swift responses to all our questions, the fact that he is Tibetan and employs only Tibetan drivers and guides, and because of personal recommendations from his previous clients. I posted a review here on TA as well as on his Facebook page. You will be absolutely happy if you finally do chose to go with Tibetanguide.com.

Hi Wilson, sorry for my late reply. We prefer a private tour. I will travel with my families of four. And we've already made the final deal with Tibetdiscovery. Yes, if you travel alone, you can take a group tour. I think it will be fun meeting new people in such an amazing place.
