Day 1 Lhasa Arrival

Transfer via: Flight on your own arrangement   

After your arrival in Lhasa you will be met by your local guide and then be transferred to the hotel. Take the rest of the day for free, to adapt yourself to the high altitude or have a first look around the town.

Day 2 Lhasa (B, L)

Lhasa (B, L)

Sightseeing: Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Barkhore Street

We will go on a full day visit of Potala Palace. It is the greatest monumental structure all over Tibet. This ancient architectural complex is considered as a model of Tibetan architecture. Located on the Red Hill in Lhasa, it is 3,700 meters above sea level and covers an area of over 360,000 square meters. The palace has 13 stories, and is 117 meters high. In 641, Songtsan Gambo, ruler of the Tubo Kingdom, built the Potala Palace for Princess Wencheng of the Tang Dynasty, whom he was soon to marry.

Then we'll visit the Jokhang Temple, the spiritual center of Tibet. Every day, pilgrims from every corner of Tibet trek a long distance to the temple. The sacred image of Jowo Sakyamuni is the most venerated and beautiful image all over Tibet

After lunch in a local restaurant, we will visit Barkhor Street, which is the oldest street in Lhasa as well as the center of old Lhasa which remains very traditional. Located in the old area of Lhasa City, Tibet, Barkhor Street is a very ancient round street surrounding the Jokhang Temple. Tibetan people are very proud of it. As a symbol of Lhasa, this street is also a must-see place.

Day 3 Lhasa (B, L)

Lhasa (B, L)

Sightseeing: Sera Monastery, Norbulingka, Drepung Monstery

In the morning we will visit the Sera Monastery, around 5 km north of central Lhasa, which was, along with Drepung, one of Lhasa's two great Gelugpa monasteries. Its once huge monastic population of about 5000 monks has now been reduced to several hundred.

Then we will visit Norbulingka Park; Norbulingka meaning "Jeweled Garden", the Summer Palace of the Dalai Lamas. The gardens are poorly tended and the palaces themselves are something of an anticlimax, especially as most rooms are currently closed to the public.

Our next stop will be Drepung Monastery. It is known as the most important monastery of Gelugpa in Tibetan Buddhism. It is considered as one of the'Three Great Monasteries' (the other two are the Ganden Monastery and the Sera Monastery

At last we will arrive at a local Tibetan Family. Common Tibetan people will welcome you to their homes; greet you in their traditional way and you will taste their typical food. You can feel Tibetan culture and religion vividly.

Day 4 Lhasa Departure (B)

Transfer via: Flight on your own arrangement

Enjoy some leisure time until our local guide will transfer you to the airport where you will take the flight to your next destination.

It was great and the guide was tremendous!

Hi Sandy,


It was great and the guide was tremendous.  I had a great time in Kaifeng. I think we have another tour coming up quickly on the 26th to Luoyang.  :)

It was a good trip.  The sites were very interesting and unique.

It was a good trip.  The sites were very interesting and unique.   The Dazu museum was very interesting since did not know there were so many of the grottoes in China and other countries as well. We didn’t take lunch but asked rather to see another grotto.  Would recommend going to the small grotto and then the larger one and then museum in that order.

I want to to thank you again for your good services. Everything worked out as expected ––or better! Getting the gaotie tickets was easy, and the two excursions were most enjoyable.

Dear Sandy,

now that we have returned home after a marvellous trip through China, I want to to thank you again for your good services.

Everything worked out as expected –– or better! Getting the gaotie tickets was easy, and the two excursions were most enjoyable. In particular, the guide at Huangshan – I called her ciao Xue (Little Snow) – was attentive and intelligent, great company!


After the hike up and down on Huangshan, we felt great: we can still do that at our age in the high seventies!


Hakka Country


Finally, it was a pleasant surprise to get your call. That was unexpected, but much appreciated.

Keep selling China to the world!

Best wishes

Wolfgang

Comment on our service from Martin McMulkin, UK

You had the best price and you have provided us with a really good service in the past. I am sure to contact you in the future whenever we plan trips around China.

Hello Sandy,


Please find the answers below.


1. What do you think of our guide service?

The guide was really good. Gave us interesting information about the places but did not talk too much.


2. What do you think of our driver service?

The driver was very good, we felt safe. The only problem was that the seats in the van could not be adjusted and so I had to stay in the reclined position, this was OK because most of the journeys were quite short.


3. Which meal makes you memorable? Please name the reason why you like or dislike it?

The lunch buffet at the hotel on the mountain was the best. Breakfast was good everywhere. It was difficult to find food we all liked for dinner, in Huangshan City.


4. Could you please advise why you choose us to be your tour operator for your holiday?

You had the best price and you have provided us with a really good service in the past.


5. Which part of sightseeing was the most memorable for you?

Walking on the trails up Huangshan.


Thank you again Sandy. I will do the review for Trip Advisor.

I am sure to contact you in the future whenever we plan trips around China.

Best Regards

Martin

Comment on our service from Bernadette Ernecq, France

It is not the price, basically because you offered a tour AT OUR PACE/COMFORT! Of course we'll contact you again ... btw we've shared to friends our tour program with your contact information!

Dear Sandy,


Good afternoon to you too!


Hereafter are my answers :  


1. What do you think of our guide service?  

Your guide services really helped us a lot! Even if neither my husband nor my grand daughter could understand English. At the beginning I translated but in the long run, I gave up! But for all other needs Holly was just wonderfully perfect, if I may say!


2. What do you think of our driver service?

He managed to get us where we were supposed to be, on time & in good shape!


3. Which meal makes you memorable? Please name the reason why you like or dislike it?

No meals were included in our tour, which was just perfect. With the heat and fatigue, there were times we just either drunk or ate ice cream for our lunch ... and the driver & Holly managed by themselves.


4. Could you please advise why you choose us to be your tour operator for your holiday?  

It is not the price, basically because you offered a tour AT OUR PACE/COMFORT!


5. Which part of sightseeing was the most memorable for you?

Really hard to choose as each site was unique. If we're obliged to choose, we choose SIMATAI GREAT WALL as this trip was planned just to see the GREAT WALL OF CHINA!


6. Your more tour experience to share with other travelers.

It was regretable to have done this tour in Aug, when it's terribly hot to the point of discomfort ... had to abandon some parts of the tour as it has become unbearable. We won't turn down another opportunity to come visit but at another season! And of course we'll contact you again ... btw we've shared to friends our tour program with your contact information!


Kindly say hello to Holly ... We wanted to call her on our return trip ( delayed 33 hours in MNL so we had to catch the next available flight for Paris. We were offered the night at a hotel, but outside the airport premises. By the time we got our papers by 19H30, our luggages being registered directly to Paris, and our take off was at 02H00), we decided not to bother her ... we were afraid to miss our flight!


Many thanks again


Best regards,


Bernadette, Philippe & Ilia

I am so pleased we had a chance to stay in the other location as we were able to see and learn so much.


Dear Sandy,


Thank you so much for your help today.  We were very efficiently taken to the correct hotel.


I am so pleased we had a chance to stay in the other location as we were able to see and learn so much.


I cannot praise our guide Jason enough. He was so knowledgeable, kind and fun. He was still helping today when Lisa left money in the safe at the other hotel. It has been a fantastic trip.


Thank you so much,  


Sue O'Malley
