"Hi Soumalya,
We are very much thankful to you for planning entire trip with so proper itinerary , without any hectic schedule. We were able to enjoy all beautiful places, clicking lots of photographs without any worries about reaching to next destination. Hotels were good. Food was great. Especially, we enjoyed ourselves much at Mrs. Sonam's house. She was a gem, very warm and kind hearted lady and great cook. We enjoyed food at her place more than any other since it was home made with love and care. Special thanks to her and Mr Sonam too. Mr. Parmesh, our driver was very helpful too and entertained us lot. He was our part-time guide too.
Once again, I thank you for responding all my queries so patiently and Mr Sandip Raha too (I got a first introductory call from him as soon as I had put my query late in the night around 11 PM) and for completing our trip with success and lots of good memories in Bhutan. I will blindly recommend Naturewings to anyone who is looking for Bhutan trip in future."

"When planning for your holidays, u want to choose nothing but the best and Naturewings completely ensures that they give in their best and makes your trip a memorable one. I came across Naturewings on internet and was skeptical to shortlist them as they were based out of Kolkata and I belonged to Mumbai and there was no face to the name. On my first call with Sandip Raha, he assured me and my husband that he would take care of my itenary and I must say he has lived upto all his promises. Right from planning our itenary, to booking our tickets, to sharing the entire trip coordinates, he and his team has done a fab job to ensure that we don't face any troubles at any time. We were well received at the Paro airport by Soumlya Ghosh who thereon was in continuous touch to ensure that every aspect of the tour is well taken care of. Must say that all the properties were unique and the room view was mesmerizing.
Thank you Sandip to ensure that we come back with happy faces and memories worth a lifetime...
Kudos to Mr.Sandip Raha, Soumalya Ghosh and the entire team at Naturewings!!!"

"I visited Bhutan along with my wife from 9th to 13th Nov'17. The entire package was arranged by Nature wings. It may not be exaggerating to say that Nature wings is one of the finest tour operators i have come across so far. I was totally impressed by their quick and courteous response. They were continuously monitoring our stay in Bhutan. Particularly the response and attentiveness of Mr Suman and Soumalya is appreciable. Even the driver provided was so friendly and so was the vehicle. Coming to Bhutan it is really the land of happiness. We were totally mesmerized by the stunning beauty and ambience. In total it was pleasant trip of happiness altogether. I already referred Nature wings to my friends and for my future trips to Northeast India i prefer Nature wings. Keep it up guys. All the best."

"I was searching a destination for Honeymoon and after scanning through a lot of available options we zeroed in on Bhutan the 1st country on Happiness index. Then the search began for popular travels conducting tours to Bhutan and to my shock I found that not many popular players conduct tours to Bhutan. Once while I was scanning through the internet i came across the site of "Naturewings" and sent an inquiry for one of the tour packages and I got a call from the director Mr. Sandip Raha the same evening. He gave me all the detailed information about packages and the options available, it was very much informative and all tour the information was in much detail. After a series of discussions emails ,travel options hotel options, options of places to visit we finally choose the itinerary which suited us the best. And all through these communications Mr. Sandip Raha and his team was very patient in understanding our requirement and more than willing to help us in customizing the package. Our package included the Popular destinations of Paro, Thimphu and Punakha. During our entire stay at Bhutan Naturewings team remained in good contact from time to time which is a rare quality with other tour operators. All the hotels were chosen personally by Mr. Sandip Raha and all of them were really fantastic especially the hotel @ Paro. All in all i would say the experience with "Naturewings" was very good and I must say they have very strong network in this region and you can trust them. Once you have shared with them your requirement rest assured that Naturewings will come up with the best package and trust me they keep all there promises."
