What Our Customers Say

"It was a pleasure working with Fiona with her good advice. Our holiday in Tibet went off without a hitch. Tsering is a very likeable and competent guide and I would highly recommend any of my friends visiting Tibet request his help. All in all, we have had an interesting and enjoyable week. But I think I will never forget the drive from Everest Base Camp to Old Tingri. The weather was perfect, and the scenery spectacular. We were lucky that day! Many thanks to Travel West China for a job well done!"
