India, Bhutan and Kathmandu- Excellent Trip!
From planning, visa's, hotels, guides and drivers, Asian Odyssey Travel was perfect. My wife and I just got back from enjoying our travel between Delhi, Agra, Bhutan and Kathmandu. We were met on arrival at Delhi and had guides and drivers for 10 days up to the time we arrived at the Kathmandu for our flight home. We were given top attention by everyone, including AOT's Kyle who kept watch during our trip. Everything was wonderful! The food and hotels were all excellent. Of course, the highlights were the Taj Mahal at sunrise, traveling through Bhutan, seeing their beautiful people (and Tigers Nest) and taking in the intensity of Kathmandu. If we ever travel to the area again, I would not hesitate to use AOT again!
