What they said who Nepal and Bhutan toured with us in… Aug. 2015
…they organized fantastic hotels, and a wonderful tour – a 12 day trip that was a glimpse into Nepal and Bhutan. Cannot think of the trip as any better and if you do go with them be sure to get to know Rajan better, he is a Nepalese renaissance man and his stories are super interesting. The whole experience, highest quality, was also relatively cheap as I was choosing from a number of agencies….
