    Hi Anand, We did make it home safe and sound after a week in Japan and finally back to the US. We had a wonderful trip! Our guide Sonam and our driver Sonam were both excellent. Our guide, Sonam, was very knowledgeable and took very good care of us. He listened to all of our requests and was very accommodating. Our favorite parts of the trip include the Haa Valley and the hike up to the Tiger's Nest. We enjoyed seeing the sites and learning about the culture of Bhutan in Thimpu. Overall, we felt like the trip was action packed and

    TID 8716, April 14-29,2015 Hi Anand, We had a safe trip back home (via a couple of nice days spent in Thailand!) and are now stuck back into work. I just wanted to re-iterate the feedback we gave to you throughout our trip, that we had an incredible time visiting Bhutan and were very impressed by the service and experience offered by Wind Horse. We had high expectations of what we hoped to get out of our trip and we can honestly say that we were not disappointed in the slightest. We left feeling like we had really been able to authentically experience

    Dear Anand, I apologize for my slowness in answering your letter. Since our return from Asia some 10 days ago, we have been busy doing chores. We loved our trip! It was everything we had hoped for. The itinerary allowed us to see many parts of your beautiful country and interesting culture. Attending the Tharpaling Thongdrel, while in the itinerary, was an unexpected highlight. Tashi, our guide, and Sonam, our driver, were excellent. Tashi and my husband liked to joke with each other which made our hikes and walks extra enjoyable.  Someday we hope to return to Bhutan to visit the eastern portion of the

    Village Tour of Bhutan for Ms. Susan Thomas & Son TID 8626: Dec. 21 - 29, 2014 I just returned a few days ago.  Bhutan was part of a 2 month trip.  I do plan to write a review on Trip Advisor. Both Tashi and Sonam were terrific. I have hired guides and drivers around the world and they rate with the best.  We loved the entire trip, especially the Haa Valley.  Lechuna Heritage Hotel is a gem. The only problem we encountered was with Tashi Namgay Resort.  We stayed there our first night in a new room with radiant heating in the

    TID 8525(Grand cultural tour with extension) Firstly, we must note how our journey through Bhutan was made all the more special by our guide, Yonten Phuntsho (and the very able driver, Mr. Sonam). Yonten’s steady hand, patience, experience and broad knowledge allowed us to understand more about Bhutan that we’d hoped for in our tour. He was able to share important insights on local activities, history, current affairs, nature, etc. in ways that were heartfelt, thoughtful, and not “canned” tourist-talk. We all felt very fortunate to have their services during our time in Bhutan. Thank you, again, to him and Mr.

You certainly have a couple of true winners in them. Jon and I both fell in love with Bhutan, the countryside and the people.We feel that this

    Hello to the Windhorse team, Thanks for the opportunity to give some feedback on our recent tour. Back this past winter my daughter Leah and I were discussing where we might travel to celebrate her graduation from college. We discussed a number of different locations bur were intrigued by the idea of visiting Bhutan and experiencing the culture, particularly as influenced by the underlying Buddhist philosophy as well as the beautiful landscapes. As we looked at different agencies to arrange our tour, Windhorse was the only one offering a horse trekking tour. Both of us love to ride, so this settled
