    TID 781 (Oct 03 - 19, 2014) My partner and I recently participated in the Windhorse Tour to Bhutan, Sikkim and Darjeeling. We had a marvelous time. We were both extremely impressed with the knowledge and enthusiasm of our Bhutanese Guide, Sonam. And our bus driver, Arun, did an amazing job keeping us all safe amidst the traffic on the curving mountain roads. Our guide in Sikkim and Darjeeling was excellent as well. Plus, the Windhorse office staff was efficient and did all they could to make the appropriate arrangements for the trip in a timely fashion. I am so pleased

All were more than we had expected. Penjor, our Bhutan guide, was one of the most considerate, caring guides we have ever met. He
