From start to finish my husband and I were more than impressed with Sonam and his team.
All our email communication in arranging the trip and the permit for myself was handled smoothly and quickly. Price was very reasonable and we could customise the itinerary to our specifications – no forced stops etc.
Sonam was very helpful in advising us flight options to book also and in answering all of our questions.
Our flight into Tibet was delayed by an hour but not to worry, Sonam and our driver were there to meet us outside of the airport. Very reassuring after a long trip. The car used for our 2 day tour round Lhasa was a comfortable people carrier and the driver was prompt and safe.
Our guide was a lovely Tibetan lady, very knowledgable about the history of Tibet and Buddhism. She effortlessly guided us around Deprung Monastery, Sera Monastery, Potala Palace and the Jokhang Temple.
Very patient and kind, helped me out with posting a postcard and buying a book at Potala Palace. Lunch stops were at recommended places.
On the last night Sonam treated us to dinner at House of Shambala – (we requested this hotel to be booked for us and he organised a great room for us). We even were given beautiful Buddhist rosary beads as a parting gift from Sonam.
I highly recommend using this agency for organising a trip to Lhasa – you will be in safe hands and not disappointed. It’s wonderful to be able to use a Tibetan company also and give something back. I will be recommending to all my friends and colleagues.
