|Dear Jayita, Our Bhutan Tour was very comfortable and well arranged. All Hotels were very good. Hotel Tashiling in Punakha was very good. It was our good luck that we got an excellent driver Mr. Gopal Roy who always stood beside us and taken care of everything. THANKS FOR ALL GOOD PLANNING|
|We had a trip to Bhutan from 12.08.20014 to 17.08.2014. It was a well organized and closely monitored by Denzong's executives. The driver was very co-operative. The hotels in Paro & Phuentsholing were excellent rather than hotel in Thimphu. Otherwise the whole trip was well organized and peaceful. |
I will surely recommend Denzong Leisure to my friends & relatives
|Miss Gayatri Ghosh|
|Never expected that Bhutan is such a nice place, full of oxygen. At a age of 71 feeling like 21 after taking few deep breath. We a group of senior citizen ladies travelled Bhutan arraged by Denzong Leisure. The hotel and resorts were above expectation only food was all tasteless and boiled, but could not say anything as very preety young ladies were serving food. "Tashi Delek" (only word we earned in local language)|
|ENJOY ENJOY & ENJOY..THIS idiom is associate with my 1st international trip in Bhutan, Thanks to Denzong Leisure by help me in this sweet memorable experience.|
|Indrajit Sen Sharma|
|Hi Jayita, We've enjoyed the whole Bhutan Package Tour. You've done a brilliant job. All the choices for stays were excellent specifically Migmar and Tenziling.|
The only observation is that the traveling time is actually a bit long for Bumthang, so the alternative can be to fly from Paro to Bumthang and then come back from there by car.
