Hello! I submitted the following review to your online feedback form and on facebook, but I also wanted to send it directly to you for your use and to express our appreciation of the wonderful trip you designed for us... Thank you!
My husband and I recently returned from a 6 night, 7 day tour of Bhutan through Druk Asia, and we are so impressed with the country of Bhutan, the tour company, and especially our guide, Tshering Pelden, and driver, Sangay. From our first inquiry, Druk Asia representatives seemed eager to answer all of our questions and create a truly special and individually tailored experience for us on our trip. All email correspondence with Druk Asia regarding our trip was prompt, professional, organized, and informative. We felt taken care of and well prepared for our adventure.
Upon arrival to Bhutan, our guide, Tshering Pelden (TP) and driver, Sangay, greeted us with enthusiasm and began introducing us to their beautiful country. Throughout the trip, TP's experience and expertise on the culture, flora and fauna, and history of Bhutan became evident as she explained the sites we visited and passed by. We mentioned in our trip notes that we were interested in hiking and bird watching, and TP made sure to put aside time for us to explore some interesting hikes and watch for the gorgeous birds that call Bhutan home- The breadth of her knowledge of the species we encountered was truly impressive. Each night, TP gave us an overview of the day to come and asked us if we wanted to make any changes. Her flexibility and eagerness to tailor the tour to our interests was greatly appreciated. If weather was inclement or something otherwise came up, TP was quick to make appropriate adjustments to ensure our day went smoothly. In addition to her impressive professionalism, TP was also so humorous, kind, and spirited, which made us feel so welcome, at ease, and among friends.
Sangay, our driver, was also clearly skilled. While some of the roads we encountered were a bit precarious, we always felt safe and at ease in Sangay's care. He clearly had much experience navigating the sometimes twisting and narrow roads we travelled. In addition to his expert driving, his sense of humor and helpful nature made our trip all the more enjoyable, and we were glad when he was able to accompany us for a meal or a hike. He even demonstrated archery and darts for us, and taught us how to play, which was so much fun!
Overall, our trip to Bhutan through Druk Asia was an unforgettable adventure, and we cannot wait to return to explore other parts of this gorgeous and vastly interesting country. We learned so much and had an incredible amount of fun. We felt so taken care of, so our trip was simply enjoyable and stress-free. Kadrin chhe la Druk Asia, TP, and Sangay!
