A life changing experience – Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan

Dear Netra, After many years of talking about traveling to these 3 destinations, we finally took the jump. What seemed like places so far away on the other side of the world and cultures so foreign to us from the west, at first was a bit daunting. This was the first time ever in our travels that I did not do any research or prepare a detailed itinerary (usually spend an entire month or so organize) Because of the region, we knew this was not possible to do on our own with the logistics of visas, flights, and booking accommodations but also knowing the what to see and where to go when. Your communication was perfect and the itinerary you custom put together for us was more than we expected. It was thoughtful and everyday was well planned. It allowed for rest and nothing was rushed. On top of that, the tour guides who took care of us were incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating. We have even become friends with some of them. We could not have had such an immersive special experience without them. We learned about more than just the surface sights but a lot about history, culture, food, religion, politics, and the arts. Our drivers were patient and high skilled in navigating the roads. We will share our travel stories and memories with our friends and family and cannot wait to return again to the region. Thank you again for making our vacation invaluable with such special memories. Anyone looking to travel to this region should absolutely be confident they will be well taken care of by Asia Experiences.

Excellent Travel Agency, Trustworthy and experienced

I traveled to Myanmar, Bhutan, Tibet, and Nepal in my recent vacations and I did it with the help of Asia Experiences. The hotels and Transportation facilities were top notches, and the Itinerary was flawless too. My guides were skilled and well-trained. I was able to enjoy my vacation without any complications. As a solo traveler, I even had a personal guide of my own in all these destinations in optimum prices. The souvenir shopping spots were also awesome, and I had a great time shopping the garments and artifacts. I had a great time thanks to Asia Experiences and especially Mr. Umesh who coordinated this whole journey smoothly and effectively. I will revisit these countries with my friends and share them my memories from this time all thanks to Asia experiences.
