Review: With their center of gravity in India-based adventure travel, tours in Tibet clearly are not Access to Adventure's specialty. If you are simply looking for an agency who will get you to Lhasa and other popular destinations in Central/Western Tibet, Access to Adventure's website can help. If you are looking for a resources that highlights interesting aspects about the people, places, and experiences in Tibet, you'll want to look elsewhere.
