"Getaboutasia and local office in Nepal and Tibet (Palpasa) have probably provided the best service from any tour operators I have ever had....which has made my whole trip so much easier and enjoyable. Tibet guide Purbhu even helped celebrate my birthday with a cake! How awesome! Tibet is just the most interesting, unspoilt and clean destination....just WOW......! " — Kerry, Coffs Harbour, April 2019

"Enjoyed China and Tibet! People were very friendly. Location of Lhasa hotel was superb. I had two days travelling outside of Lhasa and I am glad I organised it that way to see rural Tibet.
