Customised Family Bhutan Trip of Hamilton
John Hamilton Hopkinton, New Hampshire. Trip Date:
Dec 11-20, 2016 Rating:
We are grateful for a lifetime of memories gathered during our 9 day tour of Bhutan. Sonam our driver and Sonam our guide were both such wonderful people, it made the tour that much more special for us all. They accommodated our request to go further West and were game when we wanted even more authentic local food. Sonam our guide was incredibly knowledgeable about Bhuddhism and that helped us to understand the culture and the life philosophy that guide so much of Bhutan.
We normally hike on our own and don't take guided tours, so we appreciated their willingness to Read more
Bhutan Tour & short Trek
Katie Ann Trip Date:
Nov 20-27,2016. Rating:
I traveled with 3 other adult family members to Bhutan in November 2016. We did a mix of cultural tourism and trekking in Thimpu, Paro, and Punakha over 7 days.
We are so glad we found Windhorse Tours in the Lonely Planet guide. We can't recommend our guide, Yen Den and driver Mr. Jimmy enough. They were both incredibly kind, generous, and hospitable. Yen Den's English was excellent, and we had great and inspiring conversations about life in Bhutan. The man is a walking encyclopedia of information. He can tell you anything about anything in Bhutan. We were in awe of Read more

Nov 22 - Dec 02,2016 Rating:
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 Read more
Bhutan Tour for Peter and Sue
Peter UK Trip Date:
Oct 25 -Nov 07,2016 Rating:
We do hope that you had a successful trip to the UK in October. Sue and I were very pleased to meet you in Thimphu before you went. Windhorse certainly deserves to be in the top rank of travel agents for our type of holiday. Our trip to Bhutan was one of the most enjoyable holidays we have had. Over this Christmas and New Year period we have been composing our usual 'holiday album' and it has been bringing back happy memories of our time in Bhutan.
We congratulate you on having such a successful organisation. Your attention to detail Read more
Bhutan Traverse from West to East for Iris & Family
Iris Ontario, Canada Trip Date:
We returned from Bhutan yesterday. I had to email you and let you know that the tour was flawless. Our guide Penjore was kind, knowledgeable, and so attentive to our needs. Such a pleasure to be around for 12 days and our drivers - both Sonam and Jimmy were beyond wonderful (and great with Maya our 8-year-old daughter).
Our entire experience from the process of booking to the actual trip was such a positive experience, we thank you for your contribution in creating an absolute dream come true. Your choice of staff and hotels is impeccable (the only exception was Read more
Grand Cultural Tour of Bhutan For Cheryl and Wil
Cheryl Stockton New York, USA Trip Date:
Sorry for our delay. Life has been very busy since we returned.
We loved our trip. Bhutan is beautiful, the people, our guide and drivers were very kind and thoughtful. We also had quite an adventure since the monsoon decided to stay longer than anticipated, which has made for a few hairy situations on the road, but some good stories. We were lucky that it did not rain at the time we went to the festival in Bumthang, but it was raining most of the other time while there, which made our trip to Gangtay the adventure. Thank goodness we Read more

Day Walking Tour, Fall 2016
Matthew Caretti Blandon, Pennsylvania, USA Trip Date:
Nov 04 -16,2016 Rating:
Greetings from India! As you may be aware, I continued my travels here in India after departing Bhutan. And I can state without a doubt that I truly miss Bhutan. An amazing culture, kind people and beautiful landscapes!
In terms of specific feedback regarding the trip, I will begin with some constructive criticism. It would be good, I think, to work with the guides (perhaps both the senior guides and those new to Windhorse, who might have a fresh perspective) to review the itinerary of the Drukyul Walking Tour. It seems that nearly every day we had to change what Read more

Thank you all for a most wonderful trip and experience of my lifetime.....Karen had a very full itinerary which worked well; sorry our timing was off to see the Black Neck Cranes but the center was a great alternative....I hope to get an update via email and see videos of their arrival this fall.
I'll remember the beautiful country and the friendly English-speaking Bhutanese. I had some wonderful conversations with people I met in passing and at the places we visited and stayed.
Our guide Kencho Tschering and Himrod, the best driver in Bhutan were terrific hosts and most flexible in stopping to car Read more
Bhutan Customised Tour for Reto & Friend
Reto Silva Zurich, Switzerland Trip Date:

12 day customised Bhutan tour
We had a fantastic time on our twelve-day Bhutan trip in October 2016. The itinerary developed by Wind horse Tours was perfect and everything went smoothly. The hotels we stayed at were comfortable and usually nicely located, sometimes in the middle of paddy fields with a lovely view. The only hotel we didn’t like was the totally oversized and impersonal Mountain Lodge in Jakar, but our guide and the Wind horse office managed to arrange a change to the Swiss Guesthouse after one night, and this in the middle of the high season!
Subash is an excellent guide: Read more
