    G Adventures commented on this review
    Thanks for the post Istvan. Seems like Tibet was not what you had anticipated. Information on travelling in Tibet is freely available, and most travellers travel to this unique destination with at least a basic understanding of the political climate, and the flexibility required when travelling there. Indeed, the logistics of operating tours in Tibet is far from smooth sailing - we can attest to this. Sometimes it can be difficult for those travelling through no fault of their own (our ours). Such was the case here when we were advised without notice that flights would be shut down for an extended period. You incurred cost because of this, and we made this right with you, as you have kindly noted. Helping to facilitate travel to this unique destination is the best tool we have for helping people to make informed decisions, and have engaging discussions around Tibet it's history and its future. Tourism provides a window for the people of Tibet to the outside world.
