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.
