We were on tour with Tibet Native Travel in April 2017. We found this local agency through the Internet und couldn’t have taken a better choice. We absolutely recommend Tibet Native Travel.
For our `private Tour’ as a couple a Group Visa was necessary. A partner agency of Tibet Native in Kathmandu, Nepal – our first stop for the purpose of acclimatization – succeeded in organizing an urgent visa within two days; we only had Sunday and Monday available.
We planned our tour program with our agency with Mail and WhatsApp individually in advance. We chose to have 2,5 days for acclimatization in Lhasa (3600 m), what was extremely supportive for us, and – in contrary to the usual group tours – only one sight a day, in order to have enough time to relax and get used to the height.
Our driver and guide were both native Tibetans. Whenever possible they met our specific wishes and enabled many experiences, not possible in a Bus Group Tour. They answered all our questions, so we were able to learn a lot. During our common time we had not only a great atmosphere in the car, it also felt more and more like some kind of friendship with our companions. At the end our guide invited us for lunch into his house – an amazing experience for that we are very gracious.
On our tour to Gyantse we enjoyed the view to Yamdrok Lake and continued to the Everest Base Camp. For us it was very important to stay two nights in Shekar (4400 m) – because the experiences of other travelers, staying with their tour operators in Rongbuk/Base Camp on 5200m in a tent were sufficiently deterrent.
Tibet Native Tours had booked for us, except in the huge cities Lhasa and Shigatse (where we slept in upper class hotels) always the best possible local accommodation (what doesn’t necessarily include warm water or heating for the room (in Shekar only the mattress was heatet). As a traveler it is important to have realistic expectations in rural areas. Everywhere in Tibet beds are relatively hard and food variety is sometimes limited – we were lucky to have a guide with an excellent local knowledge, connections and insider tips, e.g. helping us to figure out the menu. We especially enjoyed the Tibetan traditional cuisine – that was also safe for us to eat. After returning from Shigatse to Lhasa we continued our trip with our guide and driver to Nam Tso Lake – usually only a goal for chinese Tour Buses.
Beside the deep insights into the religion and culture we especially liked the journey to Gyantse, passing Yamdrok Lake and the Everest Region, where we enjoyed a magnificent view (April is a good month for a clear view). The frozen holy Lake Nam Tso was very beautiful, too – experiences that were possible only with many kilometers by car.
About our agency we especially appreciate that Sonam Gyatso, the manager of Tibet Native Tours, was available around the clock. (Please consider, e.g. contacting form Germany, the time difference of 6 hours, otherwise he will answer you in the middle of his night in between a few minutes).
Coming back to Lhasa we heard about an Australian Tourist arriving in Lhasa with altitude sickness, who was immediately brought to hospital by Sonam Gyatso/Tibet Native Travel personally, where she was cared for overnight. That felt very safe and couldn’t be any better.
For future trips in the chinese autonomous region Tibet we well book 100% Tibet Native Travel.
Thank you Sonam and Lhakpa for making possible our unique adventures!

No one can really get to know a place in 5-7 days, especially when the place is as vast and culturally rich as Tibet. However, if this is all the time one’s schedule and means allow for an introductory glimpse into this enchanting land, one needs to look no further than Tibet Native Travel Services to be one’s guide, not because as a foreign visitor, one is not allowed to roam wild in Tibet, but because there is no quicker way to connect with the people and history that are responsible for every artifact and practice one sees under the sky in this vast landscape.

If you are reading this, chances are you have read about Tibet and have at least some notion of its recent history, but Tibet and the Tibetans are much more than that. Keep an open mind, listen, ask questions, observe, participate when invited to do so, and you will be rewarded with an experience like no other, and will have much to reflect upon on your way home.

In so far as the level of service is concerned, everything written by the other reviewers is true. The staff at TNTS may be too modest to lay claim to being the best in the business, but I fail to see how they can be topped! In fact, when comparing notes with Chinese travelers from the inner provinces, we learned that dollar for dollar, the service and accommodation we were getting were far superior to what was available to them.

Bear in mind that your guide is not only responsible for making your visit as comfortable and enjoyable as physically possible, but also for how you behave in public during the tour. While your guide will never stop you from doing what you wish to do, use common sense and act responsibly, so that this type of service will continue to be available for many more visitors to enjoy.

We travelled with this agency in late May 2015, they organised the visas and the tours (despite extremely short notice on our part) and advised us when we could get accommodation cheaper ourselves ( but still provided a recommendation ), The agency the guide and the driver were all excellent, and knowledgeable and local. They were also reasonably priced compared to the other agencies I tried, and all the staff we meet all lived and worked locally cutting out the middle man. Throughly recommended
