Holiday review by Ms. Sylvia Butterfield

Date of trip: 13/05/2016
Number of people: 1
Country: Bhutan

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "It exceeded all my expectations !"
Tribes Service: "Paul was brilliant ! The package he put together was excellent. All emails answered immediately !"
Guides: "Toupoo was very good, I had just the amount of information I needed. He was kind, helpful, polite and punctual. The driver Sangay was courteous, always punctual. He was an excellent driver. I felt safe at all times. He kept the vehicle clean. He is also an excellent photographer, if only he had a camera ! When I was dropped off at Paro airport I found it hard to say ''Good bye'' and felt very emotional, fighting back tears !"

Our Memories

"I enjoyed all the sight seeing. It might have been interesting to have ventured a bit further into Bhutan. I was only covering a small area. One of the highlights of the trip was the visit to Punakha. The Monastery building is very impressive and it's situation at the confluence of 2 rivers is spectacular. The Jacaranda trees were in flower and it was stunning ! The Tigers Nest Monastery was also very memorable."
