Comments and Questions

I'm interested in joining a Tibet Odessy tour. We have two people but would like to join a tour, we don't want a private tour. Do you offer that? We plan on being in chengdu on the 9th or 10th of September. Thanks

Asked by Nicholas (United States)

Dear Nicholas,

Thanks for your enquiry! Because of the special regulations of Tibet, it is hard to arrange a tour there for tourists from different countries. So we can only arrange private Tibet tours. If you are interested, please send us an email at
Our operators will respond as soon as possible.

Best wishes,
