Nepal to Tibet Overland Tour – wow!!!!

Just back from the trip a few days ago, yet my mind still lingering with the rhythm of the Tibetan song that the driver played repeatedly along the way... so memorable... I'm happy that I made a good decision for choosing Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition as my private tour agency.  We enjoyed our trip so much and hope we will see again... Once again thanks for the service and wish everyone in Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition, especially our tour guide and driver life-long happiness!

Tibet Tour – Satisfied !!!!!!

We had a wonderful trip in Tibet, organized and tour guided by Nepalese travel company – Nepal Guide. When we looked at the photos taken during the tour, we are still excited and proud of our decision to use Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. 
We visited all of the most important and wonderful temples/monasteries, such as Jokhang Temple, the Potala Palac, the seven-story tall Kubum Stupa and Pelkor Chode Monastery, Tashilhunpo Monastery (In Shigatse). Tibet is a wonderful and very special place with rich culture to visit. 
Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition provided us with an excellent English speaking tour guide who was very knowledgeable and reliable person. He was the best English-speaking tour guide we had in Tibet, comparing to all other English-speaking tour guides we had used for our other tours. We also appreciate our excellent driver who was tirelessly drove us around. The whole tour was very well organized. We highly recommended this company.
