 Es war eine unvergessliche und wunderbare Erfahrung in Tibet. Die Höhe wurde uns jedoch etwas aber wir endlich zu EBC und das Gefühl war surreal, besonders sehenswert Everest für das erste Mal in den Sonnenaufgang. Die Leute hier sind großartig gehören Grüner Leguan, fast alle trafen wir auf unserer Reise. Wir machten uns unsere Arrangements durch Dolmo, und sie war wirklich zuständig, vertrauenswürdig und geduldig. die Logistik und Verwaltungen war perfekt. Unser Führer Rooney war wie unser älterer Bruder sich gut gekümmert und wir uns auf dem Weg mit ihm wirklich sicher fühlen. Er ist tibetischen und gaben uns eine sehr Tiefe Erfahrung der lokalen Kultur. Unser Fahrer Songtnam war immer am Lächeln und hielt uns sicher auf den Straßen ... alles war wie ein Uhrwerk. Eines der besten Aufenthalte, den wir je hatten. Ich hoffe, dass ich die Gelegenheit haben werde wieder hierher zu kommen. Letzte Sache empfehlen ... ich werde in das Zelt in EBC ... war eine gute Erfahrung.

Thank you Shirley,My brother in law has traveled with your agency about two years ago,  so you come highly recommended : )  
The tour you suggested sounds perfect. Could you give us some other dates too please for a week. earlier than the 26th in June and a week later please and the cost. I have to share the information with my friends and then we will decide accordingly. Two of us will be travelling from Hong Kong.  I have a British passport, my husband has a diplomatic passport (he is from Pakistan, posted as Counsel General in Hong Kong). Two or three people will be travelling from Pakistan to Hong Kong and from there to China and Tibet.  
Two more questions please:  1. can you offer a discount if we have a larger group? 2. Can you also help us with travel options from Hong Kong? Thank you in advance for your help!

 Wir sind eine Gruppe von vier erfahrene Reisende und äußerst zufrieden mit www.Reisenachtibet.com und das Paket sie boten von Lhasa zu EBC und zurückkehren.

Unser Führer für dieses unglaubliche Abenteuer war Lobsang und er war sehr informativ und hilfsbereit, wenn wir hatten extra Anfragen.
Das Paket war ausgewogen mit der direkt eingeben von Freizeit in Lhasa und so, dass wir die Erkundung der Stadt auf eigene Faust und mit geführte Ausflüge zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten.
Sehr professionelle Organisation.

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
