Sengey our guide was brilliant and I would definitely use him again if I went back to Bhutan. Tenzin our driver was fantastic and they both made our holiday very, very special. The porters on the trek again were excellent and the food the cook produced was amazing considering the conditions and the weather. Bhutan exceeded all my expectations and is definitely one of the most beautiful, charming, friendly countries I have ever been to. Going there was a dream come true. We were treated like royalty and made to feel very special.

Beautiful country and wonderful people. A privilege to have seen it now; I hope they manage to maintain the balance they are striving for between development and keeping what has traditionally been dear to them.
Festival in Thimphu was brilliant. Vibrant and interesting with the locals being very welcoming. A blessing by the Lama at the Jele Dzong was particularly moving.

Bhutan is a fairy tale of the Himalayas. It is green, clean and charming. Original architecture, beautiful mountains, friendly people. The Buddhist festival with masked dances was fascinating. The trip has got a good and well balance itinerary.
