    Thank you for attempting to coordinate a memorable tour. A. Hotel Choices: Namgay and Nak Sel very comfortable and good service. B. Food: Excellent meals and enjoyable. C. Places Visited: Interesting History, special Temples and Memorable hikes. Museum was outstanding with mask exhibit and bird photos by Danish photographer. D. Meditating options disappointing. E. Driver friendly and always open door with smile. Sufficient water except on walk to Tiger Nest. F. Tour Guide: 1. Tenzin was a very negative DEFENSIVE person who did not like me as a business professional academic woman. I ask MANY questions and he gave quick 1-4 sentence answers. He appeared irritated every time I asked a question. I ended up listening to other guides to learn more detail. 2. He left me alone most of Tiger Nest walk by taking short cuts (I could have fallen while he wait ahead.) He was too busy all the time on his phone and not caring for me... why did he take my contract and my money!!! He did not respect how important this trip and walk was for me. He lost my expensive merino wool shirt; I handed it to him and asked him to put in knapsack he carry for me. Of course he DENIED I ever gave to him to carry. He seemed to deny everything.....VERY DEFENSIVE PERSON! 3. This trip was significant for me. Tenzin did not like the fact I was in Bhutan 25 yrs ago. I am 25 years his senior, probably older than his Mother and he did NOT show respect or compassion. I do NOT recommend his services. He needs to assess why he is so unhappy and improve communication.
