About Tibetmoto

Tibetmoto: A short introduction

Our enthusiasm for China and Tibet, and for the breathtaking landscapes, the cities, and especially the people and their cultures, has not dimmed with the passage of time. It draws us back again and again. What could be more natural than wanting to share this enthusiasm with others? The desire to share was the beginning of the idea of organising tours ourselves and giving, in this way, our knowledge and experience to others.

Since 2010, we have been offering an extensive programme of guided tours by motorcycle and off-roader vehicles, as well as on foot, travelling through the Middle Kingdom and Tibet. Close encounters included.

Strong Partners and Guaranteed Quality

Tibetmoto is official partner of BMW Motorrad and operates all motorbike tours with certified BMW Motorrad tourguides who passed the selctive training of the BMW International Tourguide Academy.
All Tibetmoto tours meet the high standard of BMW Motorrad in terms of professional guide service, condition of the motorbikes, accommodations, meals and of course safety.

The achieved quality is reflected in the continous positive reviews of our tour participants. In 2017 Tibetmoto was awarded with the sought-after Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor.

Everything from one source

Our customers can get it all from Tibetmoto. Planning, booking and travel management are all done by our team. Our biggest plus is the fact that we, as a full-service travel company, can offer service not only in Germany but also in our offices in Tibet and China. Because of this, we can react immediately and take care of all your requirements—including, naturally, perfect command of the local language wherever the trip takes you.

Individuality is our highest priority

Tourism for the masses is not one of our products. We have specialised in tours for small groups and individuals and we organise many motorcycle and off-roader tours for people who are driving themselves. Our personal, client-centric consultations before starting are of the greatest importance. We will plan unique trips for you to the most beautiful sightseeing spots and we will make it possible for you to realise your special travel wishes.

Our main focus is on:

-Motorbike tours in China and Tibet
-Overland- and transit trips

-Off-roader trips and individual trips in private vehicles
-Family-friendly tours
-Incentive- and promotional trips
-Overland- and transit trips
-Film Fixer Service

If you like to rough it, we can recommend our expeditions where you, for example, could camp out with Tibetan nomads by lakes, rivers or in the desert. If you prefer the more comfortable approach, then choose a trip where you stay in boutique hotels and inns.

Our trip modules make it possible for us to tailor our motorcycle or off-roader tours to every individual wish. And this includes special offers for families with special activities for the children.

Where other tour operators just do a drive-by of attractions and you only have time to take a couple of photos, we will stop and take the time to get to know the local culture and nature, the religion, or the village life. We make it possible for our customers to have special experiences and to get a deeper look at the land and the people. Whether you stay overnight with a Tibetan family on the banks of the Mekong river, cross one of the deepest gorges in Yunnan, or do a hiking trip around the holy mount of Kailash in Tibet—because of our experience and our intimate knowledge of the travel destinations, every tour turns into a unique experience.

Take the time to have a closer look at the different tour offers here on our homepage, or put together your very own personal tour using our tour modules. Arrange a personal consultation with us or send us your wishes with the contact form—destinations, activities, and your travel style. And let us know what kind of vehicle you want for the trip.

We look forward to hearing from you!
