Umbarger's 13 Days Shijiazhuang Lhasa and Beijing Tour Package

Tibet/Beijing tour

I went to China for the first time to meet my son who has been working there. I got to see where he lives and tour Tibet with him. The trip of a lifetime!

Lydia was very helpful from the very beginning planning my trip to China and to Tibet. She made arrangements for a guide to meet me at the airport when I landed and helped me with every aspect of the tour. The guides were very knowledgeable. Pasang was our guide for Tibet. He knew all the details about everything! Amazing!

Lydia checked with me every day or two to make sure everything was going well. And when my passport went missing on the way home she was available on the spot to help. She sent me the documents I would need and guided me to the correct police area in the airport. Luckily, the passport was found and turned in to security. but it was so nice to have an ally who would help!

The trip was amazing! When our ticket to Potala temple was cancelled due to government visitors, they rearranged our schedule to accommodate. We visited so many temples! Saw a glacier and a holy lake. We had our pictures taken with a Tibetan mastiff and sat on a yak! We stood at base camp on Mount Everest! Amazing!! And walked on the Great Wall. I never dreamed I would see and do these things.

We did have some affects of the altitude sickness. My son was very sick one night and vomited on the way back to our hotel. I had diarrhea for a couple weeks. lasting after I got home. Luckily Lydia had given me a list of recommended things to bring. that was very helpful! I had Imodium in my pack. And Zofran. I had also visited my de before I left and got a prescription of diamox that we took. I think it would have been much worse. I would recommend bringing several f small packs of Kleenex and baby wipes. the bathroom situation is very different than in the US. Often no tissue and sometimes no running water. Especially due to the diarrhea, it was good to have these on hand. I will be better prepared next time!

I can’t thank the guides enough! Pasang in Tibet, and Jin in Beijing. and especially Lydia for paying attention to every detail and being there to guide me in one of the most amazing adventures I have been on!
