Latest Tibet tour company review 2014
Travelers' Name: Florian Pierre Mahler and Emeric Soudier (see handwriten Tibet travel agency review)
Tibet Travel Period: April22-May3, 2014
In April 2014, we enjoyed our budget tour in Tibet and would like to recommend Tibet Ctrip Travel Service Company to all other travelers. We spent long time travelling around the world and we do not have much budget for each travel destination. Thanks very much to Tibet travel agency which helped us for such long duration in Tibet with fairly low price.
