Both Valerie and I are so thankful that we chose Road To Tibet for our tour of Lhasa and Everest Base Camp. Your service and attention to our needs was truly exceptional. Also commend Samdup for his professional demeanor, he looked after our safety and well being and was very knowledgeable as a guide.
I would also like to say that Cheme is a very good, safe driver and the Landcruiser you provided for our use is a very comfortable, well maintained vehicle. I cannot understate the importance of a good driver and well maintained vehicle especially on those mountain roads. At no time did we feel unsafe.
During our tour we met several tourists who had engaged tour operators based in the United States, China or Australia. Most of them complained that the level of service provided was poor and the vehicles provided were inadequate and lacked the suspension and ruggedness of a Landcruiser. Almost everyone who used overseas or Beijing based companies paid a lot more for the tour than we did and the level of service poor or the hotels were not "Tibetan hotels" but rather big star rated hotels a long way from the Jhokang temple.
Finally We would like to express our appreciation for experiencing the true Tibetan culture, food and religion. It was a once in a lifetime experience. I am certain that you, Samdup and Cheme are the main reason we had such an enriching experience. We hope and pray that the Tibetan culture remains forever. Truly awesome, not to mention the jaw dropping scenery.
Take care and all the very best. Cheers! —Valerie
