Tibet Discovery provided us with the most authentic and beautiful trip to another country we could possibly imagine. We were completely immersed in Chinese culture and food, and we got to truly experience this friendly country that has some of the most amazing natural views on Earth. The quality of service and the attention to detail that Tibet Discovery provides made us feel not only safe, but also allowed us the security and the know-how to explore the country freely. We had such a wonderful time and we can't wait to visit the people of China again. What an amazing experience!
