I cannot begin to explain how amazing my trip to Bhutan was - arranged by Sebastiaan at Windhorse. Firstly, Baas organized and reorganized my trip around flights and worked with me to understand how international travel and time zones affected my trip. When I made a mistake on arrival dates he saved me and rescheduled a flight, despite being on vacation with his family. My guide Yonten and driver Tashi have become dear friends - they got to know me and arranged food, destinations and stops all based on my personal interests! I learned so much about Bhutanese culture and life from them and had an absolutely wonderful time. They were both very patient at my attempts to overcome fears of height - offering help when needed but calmly letting me cross bridges and climb mountains at my own snail's pace without a hint of impatience! I miss my guides and Bhutan and cannot wait to return!
