Bhutan and Nepal an amazing experience

Dear Rajan,
I can’t thank you enough for all your help to make my trip to Bhutan and Nepal an amazing experience. You always responded to my (many) questions so quickly that it almost seemed that you really weren’t half a world away. You were wonderful through all the changes that I and other sources through at you; through it all you planned the perfect itinerary. The guides were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and courteous; I feel I have made new friends with each and every one of them. The accommodations were outstanding everywhere and you were able to get me into all the special events I want to attend, with your guidance it really was the trip of a lifetime!

As the COO of a major travel company I will make sure my agents and clients know to contact you for the perfect Himalayan journey.

Again, many, many thanx for everything!

Nepal, Tibet And Bhutan Tour after Earthquake

Dear Rajan,

What a wonderful experience we had. Our Himalayan itinerary of Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet was just what we expected. Even with the change in our itinerary due to the earthquake, you were able to modify our trip so that everything proceeded just fine. We think maybe it made our trip even better. Our guides in Bhutan, Tibet and Nepal were a wealth of information, spoke good English and were very accommodating. The drivers were the best. We always felt safe on the roads. In addition to showing us all the sights on our itinerary, the guides added sights that brought us closer to everyday life in each country. We would recommend your services to anyone interested in traveling in Nepal, Bhutan or Tibet.

We would be happy to talk to, or email with, any travelers thinking of using your company’s service. Please do not hesitate to have them contact us by email (thebartells1@cox.net) or phone (520-237-7856)

Once again, thank you.
