    Hi Jah. As the first part of the China trip has come to an end I wanted to say thank you for a great trip. I feel very privileged to have done this trip. It was a great mix of off and on road riding, the scenery was something I can't accurately express in words. It was extremely beautiful and moving to see. At the end of the day I had a great time. Thank you and the team for a wonderful experience.

    Thanks to Jah and his crew. this motorcycle tour to Everest Base Camp Tibet was stress free and detailed. Riding in China does require many special paperwork and everything was taken care of upon my landing. The Hotels and restaurants chosen for this tour were all excellent and in the best locations. The bike rental and route were all top notch also. I would definitely book another tour to somewhere else again in the future. Thanks to Jah for such a memorable experience!
