We just had an amazing journey with with Tibetan guide. This company is full-service. From our arrival at the Lhasa train station to drop off at the Nepal border, everything... read more was perfectly coordinated. From the start, owner Dhonuup, has been wonderful with communication, responding promptly with any questions we had. He set us up with the best guide (Sonam) and a skillful driver (Lopsang). Sonam was everything a guide should be, excellent English and catered to our every need. The Tibetan guide folks arranged our travel by train from Xining to Lhasa where we were greeted by Sonam with traditional white silk scarves. We were promptly taken to a hotel to rest a bit. Afterwards, we met our guide for lunch to go over our itinerary. Then, owner Dhonup, joined us to make sure
all of our questions were answered and if we needed anything else. He also said we should contact him at any time if we needed anything at all. He wanted us to feel like we were family. I have to say this company took care of us like we were family. I’ve never had such a great customer service. These guys are truly professional and compassionate. They even accommodated us when we wanted to see Everest at sunrise. Everything was perfect and we couldn’t of asked for anything more. On our last night our guide and driver took us out to dinner and we shared some Lhasa Barley beer which was so much fun. Such a memorable trip and it wouldn’t be the same without these folks. We thank them so much for everything they do and our extremelyknowledgeable guide/friend,Sonam, will be in our hearts forever.
Well, what can I say that hasn't already been mentioned by everyone else? Tibetan Guide truly did live up to its reviews and I'm happy to have gone on a... read more tour with them.
Pre-trip communication with Dhondup was easy and he always replied emails really quickly. I was stressing out a little when the Tibet permits hadn't reached my hotel in Beijing and I was about to leave the city, but an email to Dhondup quickly solved that problem, and he kept me constantly updated with its status. His promptness really helped to ease my worries! Dhondup also went the extra mile of checking in with us when we first arrived, during, and at the end of the trip. Where else can you get such great service and hospitality?
During our visit in Lhasa and to Mount Everest, Sonam (our guide) was a treasure trove of information. He spoke great English and shared a ton of facts and fascinating stories. I was curious about many things and Sonam patiently explained them, and often with humour too! He was able to sense that we had particular interest in certain topics and strove to share more about them whenever the opportunity presented itself. I travelled with my elderly mother and he took extra care to look out for her, and for that, I'm grateful for his thoughtfulness. Our driver, Samdrup, was a polite and capable driver, and we felt safe putting our lives in his hands as he navigated the winding roads on the way to Mount Everest.
The trip was perfect, and I only wished we could've stayed longer! Everything was wonderfully taken care of by Dhondup and his team, and we will definitely recommend Tibetan Guide to everyone looking to visit beautiful Tibet.

We were looking for a travel agency managed by Tibetan people at a reasonable price, and after 2 years of planning this trip we traveled to Lhasa and Shigatse with... read more them in a 7 days private trip. Dhandup, the owner, was always professional and he fulfilled all the permits, visa and requirements and he introduced himself the first and the last day of our tour. Tashi, our guide, with a very good English, and his driver were all the time with us. Tashi is indeed well prepared in all the story of Tibet and Buddhism, with long experience was ready to answer all our questions and doubts. We travelled in the low season, so we had the opportunity to visit all the temples at our pace and he was guiding us along the way. If you have a limited budget, they help you to control it, local food, no shopping and no additionals. Tibet is a destination that worth to take a local guide that can explain the little details due the complexity of what you see. Well, we still amazed of what we saw.
As we planned this trip we found Dhondup quick to respond and a clear in his communications. When we had to cancel due to travel restrictions he was straightforward, honest,... read more and prompt, as a result we have every intention of rebooking as soon as we can. It can be a worry booking and sending money over the internet, but you can rest assured that Dhondup can be relied on. We wish him well during what is bound to a tough period for tourism.
