In your inquiry, you mentioned you're interested in joining a group tour in Tibet. And your preferred tour duration is 10-12 days. We can arrange a semi-group tour for you. For travelers come to Tibet for the 1st time, we usually recommend 8 days Lhasa Gyantse Shigatse Mt. Everest Group Tour as it includes most of the major monasteries, one of the top 3 holy lakes - Yamdroktso, Everest Base Camp and you can view the plateau scenery along the way from Lhasa to Mt.Everest. After that, we can arrange 5 days private tour for you to see some highlights that most group tours don't go but show you more about Tibet Buddhism and civilization. Please let me know your idea. If you don't like trekking, we can remove it. Or if you have any other desired destination, I can design the itinerary for you. We can make the adjustment together until it meets your satisfaction then I can quote according to the itinerary. By the way, may I know which hotel class you would like to stay in? The comfortable (4-star) or economy class (3-star) hotel? About the group tour departure date, as it's still early, we can open any date as the departure date right now. If you have any further questions or doubts, please let me know without hesitation. It is my pleasure to work with you at any time.
