Dear management,
We are interested in getting a quote for a tour of only Tibet, from June 18th to July 3rd, for a private guided tour for a family of three including a 5 1/2 year old girl.
We would like to include the main landmarks in Lhasa ( Potala palace, Jokhang temple, Samye and Sera monastery..) as well as spending some time in Namtso, Norbulingka, Nyingchi and Ranwu lake, and we are open to other suggestions of great natural beauty around Tibet as well. We will be arriving from Los Angeles, U.S.A and we have 2 American passports and one Austrian passport in our family. We would all like the stay in one hotel room together, but our daughter would need a separate bed.
Many thanks and kind regards,
Rick Yamada and Julia Hiebaum

There is no problem to arrange 15 days customize tour for your family, please note that if your daughter is above 130cm (height) then flights/trains will charge full fare.
Permit information: Tibet Travel Permit is very essential and must for foreign travellers travelling to Tibet. The application can be started 2 months before the tour starts, and permit can be obtained in 18 days. We will take care of your permit application in Lhasa.
Will need you to send us clear scan copies or photos of passports and Chinese tourist L type visa. If other type of visas, need to provide with either work permit or an invitation letter.
We request and appreciate you to confirm booking a tour as early as possible, once we receive all your documents with your tour deposit, we will process them further to work on Tibet Travel Permit.
Train information:
If you take flight from USA then it’s best to fly one of city in mainland China and then fly Lhasa one day later as you need to receive original Tibet permit to board the flight. In my opinion, Chengdu is the best and most convenient city to fly Lhasa, Tibet.
Best Regards

I am Pema Tshoki from Bhutan. I am very much interested to visit Potala Palace with my parents for 4 days Lhasa highlight tour.   When is best time to visit and how long does it take to process visa?
Please advice me.
Thank You
Pema Tshoki
admin(04-09,2017): Dear Pema Tshoki,
As you are from Bhutan, we advise you to enter Lhasa via KTM, It will be more convenient for you, taking less time. Also, you don’t need to apply for Chinese individual visa.
Generally speaking, from April to October are the best time to visit Tibet, as in these months, we have a warmer and beautiful climate.
You can join our 4 Days Lhasa highlights group tour, choose one of them based on your available time, the starting and ending dates are fixed, you can share the cost and fun with other group members with low price!
Best Regards,

We will be arriving in Lhasa from Nanning on the 25th July. Could you quote us a for a 4 day Lhasa tour without the hotel cost since we have booked our own hotel
Thank You

admin(04-05,2017): Dear Mike Finn,
Permit application:
Tibet Travel Permit process takes around 18 days and we need 3 days to send you the permit in mainland China . We also need your passport and China visa copy for the permit application. Please send me clear photos or scan copies. If your China Visa is not an “L” visa, then you must also provide additional documents such as student certificates, work permits, residence permits and so on.
If you will take plane from Nanning to Lhasa, will need you to offer me your last hotel’s name/address in Shanghai China before flying to Lhasa , so that when your permit is issued, we will mail it to your hotel, that usually takes 3 days, with the permit, you can board the plane to Lhasa.
Tour Information:
Our 4 Days Lhasa Highlights Private Tours are with private fluent English speaking guide, local Tibetan driver, you can decide where to stay longer for taking photos, and shorter to get to next place, definitely do not need to take other members into consideration, more flexible and everything is prepared for you only!
Best Regards,

Hi. Sorry for my bad english. I write from Italy. I will arrive in China on 31 May and I'd like take 12 Day Ebc Tour more on less on June 9. I am alone so I'd prefer take tour with others to save money. How much would it cost? Thank you a lot, best regards.
admin(04-01,2017): Dear Marco,
Your English is good. : )
We’d also like to suggest you to join our 8 Days EBC Exploration Group Tour too as you are travelling alone, but we don’t have the exact 12 days EBC tour, this is for private tours.

Hi, We are a group of 4-6 ppl from Malaysia and would like to take a tour to Tibet, we actually prefer free and easy, so what package do you have that can suit us better, and what is the price like?
admin(03-20,2017): Dear Rachel,
Since after 2007, the Tibet Tourism Bureau announced that all the foreigner should contract with a Lhasa based local agency where every group or individual tourist is compulsory to lead by a licensed guide and driver for whole trip whether a traveller is doing cycling, trekking or driving tours in Tibet. So, any trip in Tibet is selling in packages or organized tours, freelancers or independent travellers are not allowed in whole Tibet. So all our tour is quoted with packages tour include tour guide, tourist van, Tibet Travel Permit, accommodation in Tibet. Please take the above point into serious consideration and then plan your tour, since those rules are directly from local government and that is out of our hand.
Yes, we can help you with the Tibet permit, but now firstly we will need to know the following and then we can help for customizing a better trip. Please let me know the specific date or month of you arriving in Tibet and how many days you would like in Tibet, then we can quote to you accordingly.
Best Regards

So you can only book a tour with an agency, so that the agency can help you apply for the Tibet Travel Permit according to the tour contract, and arrange the Tibet Tour for you.
