The programs are well organised!

By Armin Kejser - Denmark

I would definitely recommend this tour to all my friends! The team of local guide and driver were brilliant, very friendly and approachable and you will learn a lot from them. The programs are well organised and managed and the views of the landscape during the trip from Lhasa to Shigaxe are amazing. You won't be disappointed!

Unforgettable trip to Tiber by choosing CHINA GROUP TOURS in May 2015. Well arranged accommodation, experience driver and tour guide and taking care of us very well.
Having high altitude sickness but we enjoy the trip very much.

6 days Tibet Express tour

By Franz Schaffner - German

Dear Mr. Mao,
Thanks for your thorough following up. We were very pleased with most aspects of our tours throughout Tibet. I would like to first thank Jenny (our tour guide), who handled my issue of changing airline tickets when we were in Tibet. You were very quick to contact me with information regarding how to best handle my problems.
In terms of the content of the tours, as this was the first trip for most of us, the pace and selection of sights was quite appropriate. We were most excited about the landscape from Lhasa to Shigatse, it was the paradise for us.
The only place we would not return to is Lhasa, which seemed too commercialized.

I would like to say that the tour was really fantastic!!

By Giorgio Salomone - Italy

This is my first time to visit Tibet. Lake Yamdrok was a fairyland, and I cannot describe it in any word. The Potala Palace was also an attraction which can't be missed. The feeling of taking train was great.
I would like to say that the tour was really fantastic and I would without doubt recommend your company and its tours to anyone.
Good luck and I hope to take a trip to China again.
