Letter from our travellers

Time: 2010/5/25
1.Dear Mellissa and Jack
On behalf of the entire group I would like to thank you for arranging such an incredible trip. We billed is at the trip of a lifetime and you certainly delivered. Your after sales care was first class and when we did have any concerns you pulled out all the stops to make sure we were fully satisfied and for that we must thank you once again.
I have enclosed a few photos of our visit to the "real" EBC, and as you can see we were blessed with a beautiful morning.
I would have absolutely no hessitation in recommending you to fellow travellers and hope to use you again in the near future.
Several of us are planning reviews on Trip Advisor and we will be sure to mention China Yak and will advise you, as and when we post those reviews.
Once again thank you for your attention to detail.
Kind Regards
2.China Yak - Qinghai trip
Our trip went wonderfully well.

Their guide and driver were impressive - the guide (Darry) had good English, friendly, responsive. The driver (Gong Bao), well, he was more than driver - he was a 'wildlife spotter' (pointing out the many wild animals along the way) and as a keen photographer himself, stopped patiently for various shots. Both had great sense of humour and it was never a boring journey on our 1-week a trip in Qinghai, which included a 5-day overland journey from Xining to Zato.

Also, the company had no problem getting us soft-sleeper train berths for Xining-Lhasa. We also impressed by the guide/operations staff, James, who met us upon arrival at the airport to tranfers us to the train station. Our original guide, Darry, was still on his way back to Xining from Yushu by road while we flew back. We had expected James, an operations staff, who was assigned to us fr the few hours as guide, would be indifferent since it is overtime work for him. We were really surprised he was enthusiastic and showed no sign of reluctance in his extra duty. He made sure we went to a non-touristy restaurant far from the train station and we all had a good meal together.

3.I highly recommend China Yak Travel Agency in Chengdu. They did a great job for us. While other agencies said they couldn't get the soft sleeper seats, China Yak did get them for us. They also were highly responsive when we wanted to make changes. When my wife left her computer charger cord in a Lhasa hotel, China Yak forwarded it on to us at no charge til it caught up with us later in SW China.
Happy Travels, Bill

We are back now. I just wanted to write to say thanks for arranging the trip and ensuring everything went as smooth as possible. We had a fantastic time and are now keen to go back in the future to explore more of Tibet and then go to Nepal.
Here is a link to some of my picture from my trip. The bottom row of galleries are from Tibet. If you are interested in using any for your website, please let me know.
Thanks again, and hope to book another trip through you soon,
