Answer: Planned Tour Date:2013-03-18, Number of Person:3;

and your details.

I just call the local agency, but the colleague told me that the foreign customers only can visit Tibet from Apr, is that OK for you?

You see it is during Tibetan New Year, so the local government closed the tourist during this time.

We may arrange the entire trip for you including Nepal, but the budget is very higher if you want to add Nepal from us.

In addition, did you have been visited Great Wall, Forbidden city etc in Beijing before?

Looking foward to hear from you soon.

Question: Your questions about our tour package?:,Is there any opportunity to see Mt Everest during the tour? Can I leave out Beijing and start my tour with the train journey to Lhasa? yes, please quote 4 and 5 star hotel
Answer:

As for your request, we could arrange a visit for you to the Mt Everest. But we are not clear about the policy to Tibet now, because there are restrictions for foreign guests visiting Tibet, so we have to wait and see whether there will a change of the policy or not.

Also in October, the peak season of tour, it is not possible to go to Lhasa by train from Beijing, so you have to think about flight.

Anyway, please keep in touch and check whether the tour is available or not for next year.
