Happy New Year!  How are you?  I'm very fine. Now I've backed in Tokyo n started to work this morning. ;D My TIBET experience with Great Tibet Tour was very brilliant.   It was the 2nd-time visit to TIBET but Shigatse and Gyantse. The hotel you chose me at Shigatse had very Lovely Tibetan decoration. and Guides ( both 2 guys)  were very kind and gentle. So I could relax. Also, I appreciate you, Catherine. You are very helpful, Kindly... so nice person for me !! thank you soooo much. If you will come to Tokyo, I will recommend you a lot of place and nice food restaurants! 😄😄😄 have a nice day! Sincerely  Asami Kawada
I enjoyed my Tibet tour very much despite getting altitude sickness on the Qinghai-Tibet train. Both tour guides and drivers were great. The rooms of the hotel in Lhasa were very good, but I felt the breakfast needed more variety.  The Cesar/Caesar hotel in Shigatse was good and this breakfast was much better with a good and large variety of things to choose from. Obviously the night at the Rongbuk guesthouse was a bit cold. However, overall, I enjoyed the tour. Happy New Year Denis
Yes. We have safely reached home. Thanks a lot for the arrangement. The guide and driver were great. Other than the cold weather, which can be hard to bear at times, the trip has been a smooth and memorable one. Will definitely recommend your agency to others who want to see Tibet. Derrick
