My wife and I travelled to Lhasa in December 2019 and after three nights there we continued to Gyantse and Shigatse with Tibet Vista on a private tour for just the two of us. Our guide was Chatse Tenzing. Tenzing was a very knowledgeable and attentive guide and we thoroughly recommend him. This trip is a magnificent one to take. The scenery is spectacular and the monasteries and forts really interesting.
