“They seemed very professional, and they proved to be that, and more. We were treated like kings, like visiting dignitaries. Family could not have treated us better. Upon our arrival, we were garlanded with marigolds; upon our departure, silk scarves were draped around our necks. We hired a guide and two porters, who became like family. Our well-being and satisfaction was their daily concern. When we had a minor problem, we just said to Dorji-our guide. He would make the necessary arrangements. It was worry-free travel. A five-star recommendation. ”
