Traveling Bhutan, Myanmar and Nepal Chip & Madeline Thomas, Mercer Island, Washington
In February and March 2015, my wife and I were able to visit Myanmar, Bhutan and Nepal. Our trip and itinerary was arranged with the assistance of Rajan, and his company, Himalaya Holiday Service (P) Ltd.. We were extremely pleased with the accommodations, tours, guides and drivers which served us during this three-week holiday; and can highly recommend this company and its owner to anyone who is considering traveling in these beautiful countries.
Rajan was incredibly responsive in replying to all of our pre-trip questions and email messages. He also checked up on us while we were traveling to see how things were going. (even while trekking Annapurna/ Poon Hill). When we did have problems, he was there immediately to solve them. During our stay in Nepal, the Kathmandu airport was closed for over three days because a Turkish Airlines plane skidded off the runway and could not be moved. Rajan was not responsible for our return flight, since we had made those arrangements personally. However, he accompanied us to the chaotic airport and helped us gain entry passed thousands of people who were attempting to leave Nepal at that time. He also had a standby driver to get us to Kathmandu if our flight from the Pokhara airport did not materialize. It was late in arriving in Kathmandu, but, Rajan took it upon himself to make sure we could see all we wanted and then some before the sun set.
My wife has dietary issues and each guide knew in advance and was very attentive to the food issues. Look no further for an honest, responsible and responsive tour operator if you are traveling Bhutan, Myanmar or Nepal. We believe you can’t find anyone better.
