Hi I took a trip with you from November 22nd (I think) to December 2nd 2016, through Bhutan and into India. Sorry it’s taken me a while to feed back.
Firstly, Thank You! My trip was awesome, and your handling of it was so efficient and friendly, and professional. I literally did not have a singly worry or anxious moment during my fortnight away. This is due to your level of planning, attention to detail and expertise, but I must lay the praise squarely with my guide and driver in Bhutan – Gakee and Chimi. for me it felt like a team of friends, with no-one standing on ceremony, or being overly obsequious or polite, we had fun, and what I wanted to do just felt like it was what they wanted to do also.
Without taking anything way from Chimi, who was an excellent driver and companion, I would like to thank Gakee in particular, and stress to you what an asset she is to your organisation. I’m sure I won’t find the words, but she was so friendly, and accommodating, so polite and caring, and of course, intimately knowledgeable about where we were at any particular time, and so passionate about, and committed to, the Bhutanese history and culture. In truth it was Gakee who made my trip such a memorable and personally enriching experience, by just allowing me the space to be there and soak it all in.
I have been in other remarkable places, with guides who were insistent that I pay attention to their every word, when naturally my inclination was to look at my surroundings and process my thoughts, rather than having to pay close attention to them. I can go to the internet for the wordy detail. Gakee seems to have a real talent, a feel for people, which is rare, and which is an excellent attribute for a tour guide – for her it’s about you the person, not about showing how amazingly well informed she is, even though she is!
Thanks again. I’ll happily share some pictures with you if you like.
