Tibet Unplugged, May 2014
Tour guides (Dickey and Gopal) were both excellent. They were very friendly and ready to be adaptable and help whenever necessary. Dickey was very forthcoming in giving us all detailed information, which made the experience even better. Gopal was always on hand to ensure everyone was comfortable and did his best to make sure the trip was the best it could be for everyone.
