Our trip was amazing. Starting with a very smooth planning and organizing by Mieke.
Our tour guide , Namgyal was treating us like family. He was very patient, attentive and professional. He was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about Bhutan’s history, culture and religion. Our team during the trek was excellent. They even baked a birthday cake for my husband.

The only comment I would make is about our accommodation in Paro. It was far away from the town so we could not wander around. We also were surprised that the car was not allowed to drive close to the house.

Dear Alicja and Lech,
Thank you so much for your kind words! I will also pass it on to Namgyal. I am so happy that you had nice clear skies and an overall good experience.
Sorry to hear that the (location of) accommodation in Paro was not a good match. Some guests enjoy the rural and remote setting, but I guess it was my misjudgement of proposing it to you. Next time we'll pick something closer to town! Best regards, Mieke
