Apologies for taking so long to write this review. We did a tour with Wind Horse in January 2016 (Trip ID 8855) as part of our honeymoon. We had a wonderful time! The Wind Horse staff was very helpful, from booking the tour, flights and visas with Ugen in the Minnesota office to working with our guide, Namgyel, and our driver, Dawa Tshering, in Bhutan. Everything ran smoothly from start to finish.
Namgyel was a great guide – friendly and full of information and suggestions for extra sights. He was a big part of making our trip so enjoyable. He also had us well prepared for the Tiger’s Nest hike by taking us on the Lungchu Tsey pilgrimage the day before, so that our legs were warmed up! We appreciated Dawa’s driving skills, especially with the dirt roads from Thimphu to Punakha. We took many photographs, some of which now hang in our home and others are posted on Facebook (Namgyel can show you).
Our hotels were also nice, especially Hotel Druk in Thimphu and Tashi Namgay Resort in Paro, and the food was delicious everywhere we ate. We enjoyed trying the Ema Dahtse at every stop, and salted butter tea at our farmhouse lunch!
We loved our time in Bhutan, recommend the country and Wind Horse to all, and hope to come back someday soon! Thank you!
