Professional Guides and Safe Drivers
Our tour guides in each city, from Randy in Beijing, to Shane in LuoYang and Dengfeng (Shaolin Temple visit was super - my son got to go on stage with the monks!!!), to Amy and Nancy in Xining, to Lhakdon & Phurtse in Lhasa and EBC, to Amy in Chengdu, we always felt taken care of.
Stopped in Xining which is half way up to Lhasa to help our systems acclimate and that really helped with the altitude discomforts. We spent the most time with Lhakdon and Phurtse - hands down, they are the very best!! If you get to go to Tibet, try to go asap because it's getting harder to get permits, and ask that you have Lhakdon and Phurtse as your guide/driver.
When our room was cancelled in Lhasa, Lhakdon assured us that everything would be fine. We booked that part ourselves but Tibet Discovery had to help us resolve that issue which was so comforting in a stressful situation. They handled us with white glove treatment every step of the way, walking us into airport terminals & railway platforms. When one does not speak Chinese, it is an absolute necessity to have a tour company with tour guides who have a high command of the English language.
The drivers were safe, their cars were impeccably kept. Lhakdon and Phurtse made every effort for us to experience the spirit and culture of Tibet, which is undoubtedly the most special trip I have ever made and the share this experience with my rising senior student was amazing.
Super Services from Travel Consultant
Our travel consultant Wonder Wang helped put together our itinerary in what would be an Unforgettable and Magical trip for my son and me. Our tour consisted of Beijing / LuoYang / DengFeng / Xining / Lhasa / EBC / Chengdu / Shanghai. When our flight got cancelled while on a stopover on the way to Beijing, we were at an airport where almost no one spoke English and we did not know what to do. I called Mr. Wonder Wang and from afar, he handled the situation and got us to our destination, which was not part of our itinerary. Tibet Discovery goes above and beyond! Mr. Wonder Wang was always available and checked in with us regularly to make sure we were happy.
This tour agency, Tibet Discovery is the best - supremely recommended!! Make sure you ask for Wonder Wang to help you with your itinerary - he is extremely knowledgeable and super nice. Thank you Wonder and Tibet Discovery for making us feel like VIP's every step of the way. What an unforgettable experience and trip!!!!
