We are interested in arranging a private tour for our family: me, my husband, and our son (12 years old). The dates would be July 23-27. We would like to book our own hotel. I would really appreciate it if you give me a quote. Thanks.



In your inquiry, you mentioned that your family (three persons) plan to have a private tour to Tibet from July 23-27. Since your son is 12 years old, he needs a bed in the hotel and a seat in the vehicle, and no discount for the attractions entrance fee. Thus, it’s the same as an adult. Hope to have your understanding!

I well noted that you would like to book your own hotels.



Hello, I'm planning to visit China and hopefully Tibet from the 9th of June until the 22nd. I was wondering if was possible to Visit Tibet for 5 days, I would like to see Lasha and Yamdrotso. I do not have much time. Unfortunatelly I'm on a low budget and I will be on my own, I'll be fine with the cheapest hotel available. Could you please send me a quote? Thanks a lot Sam



In your inquiry, you mentioned that you would like to visit Lhasa and Yamdrotso in June. To be frank, the best option for a solo traveler is to join a small group tour to keep the cost down. We happen to have a 6-day Lhasa Gyantse Shigatse Group Tour starts on 11th. June which I think perfectly matches your needs.



We would come to tibet by train from Xi'an with two children of 7 and 8 years old. We are on a tight budget because we will be travelling for a long time. We would love to see Lhasa and if possible within our budget a bit more of the country. Could you send me a proposal of tour most budget friendly tours in Lhasa? And what it would cost for more excursions? Is their a discount for the children? Thank you in advance,Best regards,Heleen



In your inquiry, you mentioned that there are four of you, two adults and two children (7 years and 8 years old) would like to have a Tibet tour. For traveler less than five, we usually suggest them join our group tours to keep the cost down. So, how about joining our 6-day Lhasa Gyantse Shigatse Group Tour, which is also an easy trip for children?

I need more information before I could quote to you. 1.When will you do this tour? Different month, the price is different as well. 2.May I know if your children could sleep with you on one bed or need a single bed for them? Then I can know if there is a discount for them. 3. What kind of accommodation would you like to get? The comfortable (4-star), or the economy class (3-star) hotel? It will be so much appreciated to have all the answers. If you have any further questions or doubts, please let me know without hesitation.
