We only have maximum 6 night stay in Tibet becasue we'll also travel to other cities in China, can you arrange a tour with a 4WD car for transfering that includes all the essecial sightseeings in Lhasa, Shigaste(Yamdrok Lake) and Namsto in a 6 or 7 day trip?

How much that would cost for that trip if we want to stay in Brahmaputra Grand Hotel and Shigaste hotel for the night in Shigaste?
