This is my review.
Exceptional experience for architecture students in Tibet!
As the travel coordinator for a graduate school at a major US university, I work with travel industry professional daily. I can honestly say that the service provided by Riley Guo and Tibet Discovery was the best I have ever encountered. From the moment we decided to reserve a tour for a group of our graduate students and faculty until the day the group returned, Riley Guo was exceptional. We had less than thirty days to organize passports to China, travel permits to Tibet and the trip itself. Many experienced travel professionals told me that it would be impossible to organize a group to travel to Tibet in that short time period. Well, they haven't met Riley or worked with China Discovery. Because we did it! And our group had an unbelievable time.
Riley was involved every step of the way. She advised us on visa requirements, the flights, tour details, how to prepare the students for what they would encounter in Tibet. Every e-mail I sent to her (and I probably e-mailed her daily for the entire month of planning) was promptly answered and every question answered. She was the model of efficiency and a treasure-trove of knowledge. We never could have organized this trip without her. She even provided the faculty traveling with the students with her personal cell phone number because she was going to be away on holiday during the time the group was in China/Tibet and urged them to contact her during her own vacation if they needed assistance during the trip. Honestly, where else can you find that level of service??
The students and faculty had a remarkable visit. They saw sights that will stay with them forever. The hotels were perfect. The food was great. The tour guides instructive and knowledgeable. The travel plan went without a hitch. Everything promised was provided and then some. Our group was traveling for educational purposes (they are architecture students) and not simply on a tour and the tour guide made every effort to create a program that would meet the educational goals of the trip and highlight areas that would be of interest to our students.
I can't praise China Discovery or Riley enough. I will definitely use them again for future trips. I wish all tour companies operated like this company. Everything was perfect! Thank you China Discovery!

Globally, the participants were very satisfied of the trip
Everything was on time and organization without any problem
The guides were very good more specially in Lhasa and Beijing they know very well the story and are very good in description of the visited sites and very thoughtful for all the domestic aspects of the trip
Planes and train were on time ...............no wasted time!
The hotels were very good in Xi'an good in Beijing and Lhasa : good situation and good service the one in Xining was a little bit under expectation : far from the center and service only average
The visits were well organized and very interesting
Of course, the timing was tight as we stayed only 12 days but I think that it gave a good image of the various aspects of your country
Thank you for all the work that you did for our pleasure
I shall recommend your agency if some other people want make a tour in China
I shall send some pictures in another mail

Just to say that all went well in Tibet. Lily did a fantastic job and also my guide in Lhasa, that Potala palace is unreal, and the other sights also unique, was a real rewarding trip one I've been looking forward to for a long time.
I'm over the moon for having had the chance to visit there.
Thanks to you and your company. All the best was a pleasure.

I returned home a few days ago and I'm doing fine.
The trip went very well.
I really enjoyed my time in Lhasa and I've already told some friends and family about it.
