Hi Jazzy,

Thanks for your message. It is my pleasure to be at your service. I suggest you join in our classic Tibet Group Tours all of which control the group size within 12 travelers. Chances are the final group size has only 5, less 5 members, but not for sure. We will still operate the group tour even if the max capacity 12 is not reached. You can check if we have such such "loose group". I have delivered your message to our sale team. One of our travel specialist will reach you as soon as possible.
