How Tibet Local Guide started
Before founding Tibet Local Guide tour brand (initial online brand Tibet Ctrip Tours), Tony was working as an English teacher in a Lhasa high school in the early 2000's after his graduation from university with a bachelor’s degree in economics and English. Many Tibetan students are from impoverished families, and like many teachers in school, Tony hoped that he could help these students receive a good education and make a better living. English was especially a hard subject for most local students because the school lacked advanced teaching resources and a supportive language environment. The situation has made it difficult for students to master even the simplest content, such as reading alphabets. But if they don't learn English, they have less of a chance to go to university and change their circumstances. This was a great challenge Tony faced as a passionate teacher, and he hoped to find a solution to change the status quo.
After living in Lhasa for a while, Tony started to notice the growing number of foreign visitors on the Lhasa streets. Sometimes they couldn't communicate with locals, and Tony always went up to them and provided translation assistance. This made Tony realize that tourism is a great learning opportunity for local people. Not only will they have jobs and have the chance to practice English, they can also know about the greater outside world and expand their vision. Soon afterwards, Tony founded his travel agency focusing on foreign travelers. He began to familiarize himself with the local travel industry. He visited many parts of Tibet, got acquainted with many good Tibetan guides and Tibetan drivers, and built a reliable operation and a loyal team all from scratch. From the 1st guest to the many after, Tony and his team have always served them with the goal to be a responsible tour operator.
Over the years, many travelers have had the best vacation of their life in Tibet by Tibet Local Guide-Tibet Ctrip tours, and many local Tibetan travel professionals have benefitted from the boom of the industry. Tourism in Tibet has also become increasingly competitive, but our tourism website aims to continue to organize quality trips at fair prices. We are also making innovations to our business every day. We hope that after learning about our founder's story, you will have a better understanding of where we come from and where we will go from here.
