Amazing trip - great from planning to the very last day: Before settling for a tour agent, I was in contact with several well rated agencies. Certainly many of them would have delivered a great tour, but I am more than happy we finally settled for Road To Tibet, a genuinely Tibetan travel agency. When planning our 9 day private tour, Woeser was very responsive and answered to every little detail and questions in my mails immediately. The itineraries he suggested were smooth and slightly different from other agencies. Pricing very fair and terms a little more flexible than with other companies. We flew in from Shangri-La in Yunnan (at 3300 m), a great option if you want to minimize chances of altitude sickness. The downside was that our already delayed flight returned to Shangri-la after already circling above Lhasa airport- no explanations given. In the end we arrived with 9 hours delay in the night except for lunch time. I really appreciate Woeser's efforts who stayed in touch with us and who during the day rearranged our tour order and hotel bookings, so that it was still possible for us to visit all agreed places, despite loosing half a day. Our guide Samdrup and driver Putsi (?) took very well care of us during the tour and were pleasant company. Samdrup speaks excellent English and is very knowledgeable about history and religion. Our schedules were easily adapted to our daily form ( some of us were still fighting a cold). In places we visited outside Lhasa, we often where the only tourists, while many Tibetans visited and worshiped at the temples. An experience we had hoped for but which exceeded expectations. Hotels and recommended restaurants were carefully chosen and of good quality ( even our rooms in Samye monastery hotel was better than expected according to TripAdvisor reviews) and cost for food in line with what we experienced in Yunnan, while we had expected higher costs. If ever having the chance to travel to Tibet again (perhaps to Mount Kailash), I would certainly choose Road to Tibet again. Thanks for a perfect and memorable tour! —Anke
