Greetings! We just got back and I’m writing to thank you for a memorable trip which we had been planning for months. Your service is excellent and I will not hesitate to recommend your company to our friends and family. We learned a lot and bought enough souvenirs to remember Tibet through the years. Also, you are not joking when you mentioned about the speed limit and how you could not get around it. That was something else! At any rate, more power to your company and take care!
