I write to thank you for your hard work and commitment in ensuring my trip to Bhutan was successful. I returned home yesterday evening. The holiday really was a wonderful adventure. All aspects went well, especially the communications with Jatinder at Impact Travel for the Agra Extension – transport links and guide. All connections were made smoothly. Impact provided a first class service and If I ever have the good fortune to return to India I would certainly wish to use the company again.
The only deviation to the itinerary was Alam’s very sensible decision to shorten the longest run to two days rather than the one. This was a very good decision as 300 km on such rough roads would have been very difficult to manage in the one day. Alam changed the accommodation to enable this to take place. This meant that we missed the Darjeeling ‘leg’ but this was absolutely the right decision. As with the Tibet Trip last year Alam’s management, local knowledge and communication with the various support team members was superb.
The accommodation throughout was excellent, even a couple of local guest houses provided clean rooms and excellent food. But the hotels could not have been bettered. The Riding Team really gelled together really well as a friendship group, this being greatly assisted by us overcoming some challenging terrain as a group and sharing the experience. We were very much of the same level in riding ability.
So, another great trip. I thank you, and David too, for facilitating this. I do hope that I may be able to holiday again with HC Travel at some time in the future.
