Introduction of India, Bhutan & Nepal

Agra - Jaipur - Delhi - Bagdogra - Sikkim- Phuntsholing - Thimphu - Punakha - Paro - Nagarkot - Kathmandu

This journey starts with the tour of renowned Golden Triangle: Delhi, Jaipur and Agra, where we visit some of the greatest sights of India, including the Taj Mahal. Fly northeast to Bagdogra and climb up the hills through tea gardens to Darjeeling. Take a joy ride on the famous toy train with astounding views of the Kangchenjunga Himalaya. Travel overland and cross the border into Bhutan, a kingdom of stunning natural beauty with its friendly, colorfully dressed people. Spend a week in Bhutan visiting ancient monasteries, villages, farms and meeting with locals. A breathtaking flight over mountain vistas brings you to Medieval Kathmandu. In Kathmandu, admire magnificent royal residences, cobbled streets, ancient squares and buildings sprinkled with intricately hand-carved windows set against a backdrop of the majestic Himalaya. In the narrow lanes and alleys, jostle with Nepalese people in a happy and lively atmosphere. Visit artists markets, temples, pagodas, a hill resort and a local home.

 Petrie's India,Nepal & Bhutan Private Tour. TID -753 (Sep 13 - Oct 03, 2014

Dear Anand and team, Namaste!  Thank you for your follow up message! My apologies for the delay in response. It would be my pleasure to provide feedback and any endorsements that would be useful to you in future planning and for promotional purposes in bringing on new guests.

This trip was truly remarkable, and my mother-in-law and I had the experience of a lifetime. It is with reluctance that we are making our transition back into life now in the US again, because we enjoyed our time abroad so very much, and because we still dearly miss the people, and the sights, sounds and tastes of these amazing countries!

The India portion of the trip was our favorite time, and we learned so very much. We were particularly impressed with Gaurav Goyal as our guide, as you know, and couldn't recommend him enough. He made us feel like family during our stay and went out of his way to ensure that my mother-in-law in particular felt comfortable and cared for. Unfortunately, she had developed an issue with her back during the trip that she is still recovering from, which has been making walking all the more difficult for her. This, regrettably, was the reason for cutting the time in Bhutan short. I had very much been looking forward to hiking those last couple of days, but just did not feel good about leaving her behind in the hotel in order to do that. Back in Delhi, we were able to take in a few more activities that she and I could enjoy together. But not only Gaurav - all of the guides, and the drivers as well - went above and beyond to assist her every opportunity that they could, in every area we visited. Thank you so very much for all the kindness and thoughtfulness!

Our hotels were all very nice facilities, and we found ourselves continually pleased with the arrangements. Our favorite places to stay were the The Hans in Delhi, the properties in Jaipur and Agra, and Club Himalaya Nagarkot. Again, thank you!

We have so many pictures and video from our travels! I put together a YouTube video - which you are most welcome to view and/or share, if you would like - of just one day of sightseeing in Delhi, and I am actively in the process of making more, one from each segment of our trip:

As soon as I get the opportunity, I do also plan to add some comments to TripAdvisor about your company and the various places we saw and where we stayed. In the meanwhile, if you have any further questions for me, or if there is anything else I might do for you, please don't hesitate to let me know.

TID 8575 India, Bhutan & Nepal Tour( Bhutan Portion) Dear Mr Kinga Dechen and Mr Rinzin Jamtsho, Bhutan is amazing. We were so far removed from our reality while we were there that I couldn't stop being excited for one minute of my stay. I have never been in such a nationally reverent and devout country, and am so grateful that I got to experience it. On top of that, we had the most wonderful guide (Nim Drugyel) who made our trip really interesting and fun. The sites we visited became even more significant because of his knowledge and his obvious passion for the places we visited. And he also told captivating stories related to the sites we saw in a very, very charming way. He showed a great deal of concern for us, was comfortable to be around, was personable, polite and fun. We don't know what we would've done without him. We also had a wonderful driver, Wangdi, who never failed to get to the car door before we did, so that we wouldn't have to open it for ourselves!!! (We're not used to being waited on here at home- it was wonderful!) My husband and I will be going on Trip Advisor and some of the other travel sites to review our wonderful trip. Thank you for all the arrangements that were made to show us the amazing things we found in your country. I believe we'll be back!!!
