Tours to Tibet come in a variety of different types, durations, and costs, and the type of tour you can take largely depends on what you want out of the Trips To Tibet. A journey to Tibet can be a long or short trip, but is always guaranteed to give you the best experience, no matter which tour you are taking. With independent travel no longer being permitted in the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR), all tourists to Tibet now need to take a pre-arrange tour of the region with a registered Tibetan Tour Operator or Tibet Travel Agency. This actually makes it much easier to plan, and you can leave all the details up to the travel agent once you have decided on when and where to go, and how you will travel.
Types of Tour to Tibet
Tibet Tours generally come in three types, private tours, family tours, and small group tours. The type of tour you choose can be based on whether you want to travel alone, with your family as a family private tour, or whether you will travel in the small group tours with other people that have joined in on the tour. Each has its benefits, while at the same time, each has its cons for different types of traveler.
Private Tibet Tours
A Private Tibet Tour of Tibet is one of the most expensive options for tourism in Tibet, but it does have a huge number of advantages that other tour types do not have. Firstly, the itinerary is entirely up to you, and you can choose where you want to go and what you want to see, and have the tour customized based on your requirements. This is a definite advantage, as it gives you more freedom to travel the region.
Secondly, a private tour means that you get your tour guide all to yourself, without him needing to see to the needs of other people during the tour. This gives you a more one-on-one experience, and is a better way to learn more about the culture, religion, and people of the region. A private tour also gives you the choice of taking a longer tour like China's Tibet Trips, exploring more places in the country as you travel to the Qinghai-Tibet plateau. A tour of this kind is a great way to explore more of China and its variety of cultures and ethnic peoples than on any other kind of tour.
Family tours are ideal for families with kids or with older family members, and make a great vacation for the entire family together. Taking a trip to Tibet with your kids or your parents is not difficult, and with a little preparation, you can all enjoy the trip to the roof of the world, no matter what age the family members are. A family holiday in Tibet is unlike any other family holiday, and gives your family the chance to explore the mystical plateau, its unique culture, and the devout religious Buddhist people.
Family tours can easily be arranged to cater to both younger and older members of the family, and our guides and staff are well trained in handling tours for families, both with young children and with older family members. And other benefit of taking a family tour when you have kids includes giving your young children an insight into the way other cultures and people live their everyday lives, which can be very different from what they are used to. A family trip to Tibet with kids can be a real eye-opener for them at an early age.

Many of the members of our Small Group Tours stay in touch long after the tour has finished, and forge lasting friendships.
