We have reached safely in Singapore and thank you again for all the arrangementsJ
Despite some of the challenges faced due to the political situation and road works, we had a good experience and were well taken care of. We also appreciate the adequate rations and clean equipment issued to us. These are some of the feedback we have shared, in writing, to our guide.

Purchasing for goods and services online is increasingly becoming second nature to most people with internet access and a credit card.
However, it is still daunting to purchase a large value item even though it should be covered under the credit card providers guarantees. When searching online for a reputable Chinese tour and travel agency to arrange a trip to Tibet, such was my anxiety. That was until I came across Tibetdiscovery.com. I used their web based inquiry form to request information and "Rita" replied to me within 36 hours, being my inquiry was made on a weekend. Rita patiently worked with me on what was available, visa requirements, standards of hotels in Tibet, tour itinerary etc. Together we arrived at ideal tour availability.
After paying for the tour online, the process went very smoothly and Rita gave instructions what was needed from me at each step of the process.
Everything was arranged by Tibetdiscovery.com from visas, flights, transfers from airport to the first hotel, the tour itself which involved air conditioned coaches (bus) to the various places visited over the 8 day period we booked, as well as the other hotels we stayed in along the way.
In regards to the tour itself, on balance it was excellent although we had not realized the lengths of time we would be required to travel in a bus.
Out of the 8 days, a total of 30 hours made up of 6 hours one day, 9 the next going up to the base camp at Mount Everest from Lhasa and the same on the return journey.
The tour guide "Julie" and the driver were both excellent and Julia was extremely well versed in her knowledge of the Dala Lhama's winter palace and all the many temples we visited during the 8 days.
All in all I can recommend Tibetdiscovery.com to anybody looking for a once in a lifetime visit to Tibet and the Chinese side of Mount Everest.
I've answered all the questions below.
Yes, Daniel was patient with all our questions about the various places we went. He was able to answer them, and provided fascinating information about each of our stops and the city in general!! He ensured that we had a great time and learned a lot. I highly recommend him as a tour guide to my friends!
Yes, nothing felt rushed, yet I'm amazed at how much we were able to do in a single day. I'm happy with the booking process, how patient you were with me, and I'm happy to recommend this company to my friends.
Everything was great about this trip!
My original plan was to send feedback after reaching home in Newzealand. Still I am travelling in India.
Anyway, thanks very much for your arrangement of our China tour. I really feel that you are very very professional and in one simple word you are ‘SUPER’.
Also the drivers and the guides were very polite and really helpful in both the places.
Overall we were very happy and in case we come again, will contact you again.
Thank you once again and wish you all the best.
We are back in Singapore and Ging Kong and I just wanted to thank you from three.
The tour was really good, everything worked out perfectly and Chimy was the best guide we could think of. She was really helpful and very knowledgeable.
Also our bus driver was great-he did a good job bringing us safely to very spot and back.
Thank you very much and best regards
We enjoyed the tour immensely. Everything went pretty smoothly. The local guide “RJ” was great
There were 5 others on the tour who booked with other travel agencies. Our hotels were better than theirs. The other tour members were friendly; however, one tour member had considerable difficulty with walking up steps and needing oxygen. Her son did not help her in walking. She needed oxygen at Potala Palace and continued to need oxygen at higher elevations. Her son insisted she should go EBC even with her condition. My son who has climbed the high elevations suggest an alternative for her with help from RJ that we leave early, arrive at noon and stay for few hours instead of being there overnight and for 24 hours. The night time would be very difficult for her. We ended going down about a 1,000 meters which helped her. The group agreed with this change in schedule.
I would recommend your agency and especially with the guide RJ.
Our beautiful trip through China is over and we came safely home. From the first up to the last day we were impressed by the diversity of your country, by the pleasant people, historic monuments, natural wonders and economic growth.
It will be my pleasure to answer your questions and write a feedback to our trip on TripAdvisor.
1. Is your travel consultant of our company fast enough to answer your E-mail and patient enough to answer your questions?
Absolutely correct. We always got the answers to our questions the next day which is much faster than most European companies. The information was precise and contained all the necessary attachments e.g. for obtaining our visa for China or arranging our travel insurance. While planning the details of our trip with support of Catherine we had several additional wishes and they were always fulfilled.
2. How do you comment your tour arrangements?
Based on literature and internet reports we created an initial list of sites we wanted to visit in China. Catherine Liu from China Discovery proposed very useful improvements to our trip proposal, booked excellent hotels, organized transportation and very good local guides. This was certainly a challenge because we wanted to see a lot of places in a relatively short time, but Catherine managed it perfectly and local guides also gave us good tips what to visit in our free time. We had no health problems, food was good (although here and there we treated ourselves also in a western style restaurant), the quality of cars was moderate.
3. Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China?
We will present the pictures from the trip to our friends and work colleagues and will be glad to recommend China Discovery as trip organizer.
4. Can we use your comments of our service, the photos or other images that you took on the tour for our websites, brochures, marketing and publicity? If yes, could you please send us some of your photos by E-mail?
You can use our comments for your marketing, but for privacy reasons we would not like to have our pictures published.
Catherine, we also appreciated very much that you took the time to meet us in Chengdu .
Thank you again for your great support
