PRIVATE TRAVEL FOR YOU, YOUR FAMILY & FRIENDS
Custom isn't complicated: in fact over 70% of our clients experience Tibet travel on a Custom Journey. And here's the beauty, a custom trip to Tibet departs on dates of your choosing and you travel only in the company of loved ones to destinations entirely up to you. You determine the trip length and focus for the ultimate Tibet vacation. The type of Tibet lodging is up to you, as are included meals. All Tibet luxury tours are accompanied by expert private local guides and drivers, all for about the price of a group departure (or if you choose, the sky is of course the limit).
