Bhutan is amazingly beautiful. The guide, Dawa, is exceptional in her job and deserves utmost commendation (although she was not the guide assigned in the itinerary you provided). I really enjoyed the breath-taking landscape, imposing dzongs and tranquil monasteries. It was certainly a very different kind of holiday, in a good way.
Since you asked, the main shortcoming in this holiday was the food. Many dishes were bland and worse, repetitive. I believe improvements can be made because after visiting the market in Thimphu, I saw varieties of produce that were not included in the meals.
Also, the hotel, Gangtey Palace in Paro is actually quite beautiful in a rustic way, but perhaps, travellers should be warned that it is a very old wooden building, hence the lack of electricity wall sockets, the dim lighting and the high noise levels.
Many thanks for all your help in planning this holiday.
