    Danoe is one of the best guides I ever had in the time I travelled around the world for his excellent guide, euthusiasm and passion to service delivery. He was beyond expection for caring about our health and interest. He has shown a high level of professionalism and enthusiasm.The driver Norbu was very cooperative and professional. The road condition was quite bad but that was for him to show his excellent skill.
