Dear David,  
This 8 days tour in Tibet is really incredible and unforgettable. Organization of this tour has been perfect and I was very lucky to join a group with a funny young Chinese lady and 4 very pleasant Germans. it is the ideal size of a group for a good We have all really appreciate our guide, Tashi Peida. For his deep knowledge of the Tibetan civilization and religion. his very good English level and above all, his very pleasant company and his permanent smile. He is more than a guide: a friend The timing has been well managed by Taishi to avoid loss of time on road and to arrive on the Everest tent camp in time to enjoy the incredible view of Qomolangma before the sunset. Accommodation is 3 hotels has been perfect everywhere. The only negative point is that we have understood that our driver didn't have the proper licence to drive our minibus. This is the reason why we had a second driver to go through some check points  Regarding your personal service, David. let me give you the same rating than the level of my worry at the beginning of the preparation of this tour: ) : ) Thanks a lot for your patience and your efficiency to obtain my Tibet Visa and a train ticket at the last minute. Great job. I only regret not to have had the pleasure to meet you in Lhasa. Anyhow, take good care my dear friend!

Dies ist das wichtigste in Lhasa, wenn nicht ein verschwendetem Reise gemacht haben, oder auch beim nächsten Mal wieder zu sehen. Nehmen Sie es langsam, da gibt es viele Treppen und Dinge zu sehen sind.


Tipps: Wenn Sie in Lhasa sind, gehen Sie zum Potala Palast an ihrem letzten Tag in Lhasa. Erstens, es gibt viele Treppen steigen, also wenn Sie noch zum Eingewöhnen haben, werden Sie wahrscheinlich leiden im Aufstieg. Zweitens, wenn Sie die Hauptattraktion erst einmal sehen, die anderen Kloster/Palace werden können dem Vergleich nicht standhalten. Drittens kommen Sie wieder in den Abend nach Sonnenuntergang zu nehmen Sie den nächtlichen Blick auf dieses Hotel.

Ticket ist eine Postkarte, die man nach Hause schicken. angebracht ist ein 80Cent Briefmarke, nur ganz oben auf der Rest zurück nach Hause zu schicken.

Potala Palast wurde im 7. Jahrhundert erbaut und war der heutige Größe im 17. Jahrhundert erweitert. Es liegt ca. 114m m hoch, mit 13 Etagen des Wohnbereichs, Tempel, Beerdigung stupas und monk Schlafräume. Wie von Anfang 2014, es gibt ca. 70 seltsame monk dort lebenden, er es mehr als eine Touristenattraktion als einen funktionellen Palace/Kloster. Mein Reiseführer ist sehr nett. Wir haben eine schöne Zeit verbracht. Das ist der Grund, warum wir in Lhasa.

Dear Nancy,

How nice to hear from you! Thanks for your email and yes, I have been back to England since last Thursday after the wonderful trip to Tibet you helped organizing. I hope all is well with you and you have had a “Golden Week” holiday. 
Overall the trip was excellent, the tour showed different part of Tibet and had the right balance of supervision and free time in Lhasa especially. Good points were your email contact which was always prompt and informative, helpful and friendly. This helped build trust and confidence in the journey. I also thought highly of the tour guide who showed us around, he was very patient and kind to us, most of all I was impressed by his deep knowledge and genuine belief in Tibetan Buddhism.
That’s all that I can think of at the moment, but I really did want to thank you for a fantastic trip to Tibet, I’m left with wanting to return and see more. It was very thought provoking and I loved it all!
Many thanks again and best wishes!  Kathy

Dear Amy,

THANK YOU very, very, much for all your help and assistance for our Tibet tour. Without you I may not have managed without more tears. The tour was an amazing adventure to say the least and a trip neither Grace nor I will ever forget. Lobsang was the BEST. thank you for him too. He went out of his way to make sure we were all happy. A hard group to please! He is such a beautiful person. I hope you meet him one day. I seem to dream of Tibet every night. THANK YOU Amy also for the contacts places to go in Chengdu. A beautiful experience. Despite the typhoon in Hong Kong we did eventually get home safely. Lots of love to you : ) : )

Kind Regards, Berni & Grace
