    Best parts:
    - Our guide organized a wedding ceremony in one of the oldest temple of Bhutan for our 25 years wedding anniversary. A really unforgettable moment! - Enjoying the warm temperature in Punakha and the next day driving in 30 cm of fresh snow on the way to Bumthang. - For sure, the hike to the Tiger Nest was a wonderful experience
    Worst parts:
    There was no worst parts, just some little issues with the snow on the road, 2 days without electricity (and heating in the room). But with our wonderful driver and some good blankets in the room, it was not a problem ;-)
    Summary:
    The whole trip designed by the travel agent was really perfect. We could enjoy different sides of Bhutan, from the fast changing cities of Paro and Thimphu to the traditional places in Bumthang.

We could enjoy different sides of Bhutan, from the fast changing cities of Paro and Thimphu to the traditional places in Bumthang. Punakha and the sunny weather were really great. Enjoying some traditional archery competition there was interesting. The whole trip would not have been so nice without the great knowledge of our guide Tenzin on the Bhutanese history and tradition. As mentioned above, our driver has also done a wonderful job by driving safely (even with sometimes difficult weather conditions), giving us sufficient time to take picture along the road! A really wonderful experience!See more

    Best parts:
    Great guide and driver. Flexible itinerary and excellent sites to see. Wonderful local people.******************** hotels. Meeting with nuns and monks to distribute glasses. Thimpu Dzong. Visiting families. Glass work at the **************** in the guest room. Hikes with guide. We are not hanging our hat about the trip on this hotel. We are not suffering about this past event. But future guests that you book may be happier in other hotels in the area.
    Worst parts:
    The ******* Hotel. Just to say this one time, this hotel kind of tries, but is not what you think it is. Moth balls in the sinks in the rooms when you arrive is brutal. Not sure why theu do this but it is the only accommodation I have ever experienced this. No hot water in the morning both times we stayed there. This is not something expected in a 3 Star Hotel. A homestay, yes, but not a hotel. Food was by far the worst in the places we stayed. They put in one or two things into the serving trays at a time. They do not check to see what is in the trays so you must ask for additional. Then they bring out more 10 minutes later. When asked they say they can't keep it warm. Rooms situated by the hallway are very noisy. Number 3 is one we were in.
    Summary:
    We found Evanos on line and Ugyen was extremely helpful in determining the needs of our group.

We very much enjoyed the personal care the guide and driver took to cover all the details and communicate what we going to do for the day. We were able to do small service projects along the way by distributing reading glasses to those in need and high elevation sunglasses.See more
