Excellent Customer Service and Value for My Trip to Bhutan

I was taking part in a volunteering / touring break in Nepal for 2 weeks and I wanted to visit Bhutan before I headed back to the UK as I have heard wonderful things about the country. I contacted Himalayan Tours for an itinerary and price and they got back to me within hours with an itinerary and price which included visa, flights, hotel, guide, and the itinerary I was after. Anup and his team answered all my queries immediately through email and I decided to book the 3-day tour. I met Anup at the hotel I was staying in Kathmandu at the beginning of my time in Nepal and then later when he gave me the visa and paperwork. I had only paid him for my flights back to the UK and 30% of the trip so I thought it was very trusting of him to organize everything without me having to pay the whole amount up front and only once I received the paperwork did I pay the rest of the money owed.
Anup contacted me to ensure I had arrived safely in Bhutan and that everything was ok. I would also like to add that because I was transiting planes in India (Delhi)and that I was using 2 different airlines ( Druk & Virgin Atlantic) I was unsure if my luggage would go straight to the UK. I did not have a visa for India and was worried but Anup said it would be fine as long as I told the check-in at Bhutan. Everything was fine and I did not need a transit visa (phew) and my luggage arrived safely.
Anup and his team always responded to any queries or concerns I had immediately. ( i did have a few as a 51-year-old female solo traveler and I can’t thank him enough for organizing mine once in a lifetime trip to a beautiful country. Himalayan windows gave me a 5-star A++ service and would not hesitate in using them again.
