Thanks for the Great Tours, great itinerary ! Great and wonderful time , i join a Tibet tour with Group 2 couple from Holland , they was also very nice, nice to be with such company, Actual Adventure and Leader Kedar see you in next year
Lakpa - our Tibet guide - was excellent, very knowledgable, experienced and good in assessing what we want and need- the trip itself well structured and organized, maybe it could have involved a little bit more walking- accommodation great and perfectly corresponding with the place- food very good, with Lakpa giving good lunch/dinner recommendation
Hope this helps to Kedar and his Agency Actual Adventure Pvt.Ltd
