One of my best experiences

I just got back from 6 days in Bhutan and really loved it. I flew into Paro, went to Thimpu, then Punakha and back to Paro. The trip and the country were great, and I would recommend it to all. I went alone, and as such paid a bit more but it was worth having both a car driver and guide for that price. Of course, the guide spoke good English.

Each day I decided exactly what I wanted to do and where to go and did just that. I cannot recommend enough this tour, and this travel agency. They were outstanding. They also love to work with small groups. I want to go back.
