Naturally, we get asked a lot about the pricing of trips to Tibet. In this post, we’ve put together for you a quick summary of sample costs of some common Tibet tour packages. There are a range of prices, and some of the large Chinese companies can be cheaper, but be careful about making a choice based on price in the Tibet travel market. Paying a fair price to a reliable, Tibetan-owned company means supporting local, Tibetan-owned businesses, and the Tibetan guides and drivers they hire.
And with those cheap tours, be sure that you get what you pay for! We recently heard from a traveler who took the cheap path and who regretted her decision when she realized the service with her company was so poor. She actually wanted to change companies, but it was too late. We hate to hear this, and would so much rather help introduce you to a great, fair-priced agency to start with.
