We came to Tibet as a small tiny group of three: me, my girlfriend and my mom. The first day we arrived at Lhasa airport, right from there went to our hotel in the very old part of Lhasa, super cool, then food and rest. According to general recommendations, one needs at least

Response from Kunga-TibetVista, Guest Relations Manager at Day Tour: Tibet Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple
Responded 25 Nov 2019
Dear robertofg07, Your feedback has been a valuable to our service. Apart from the friendly guys - Jim & Ngawang, there is a few misunderstandings I feel compelled to clarify. Tast the sweet tea is not included in the itinerary and it's just a optional recommend for guests at their leisure. Our guides will be happy to give directions and assist with relevant arrangement. Again, I'm glad to hear that you had a great time in Lhasa. We will keep working hard to perfect our tour service and upgrading our tour products.

Our guide Tserina was excellent at both Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple, preparing us well for what was to come, and narrating for us the religious and historical significance of both venues. Where she really impressed us, however, was in the activities beyond these two
