Here is the bottom line: I did my homework and concluded that Far Fung is the best travel company to plan and facilitate your adventure to Bhutan, and their guide, Karchung, is the best individual to introduce you to Bhutanese culture and society. Why? Our family of five just

Dear Steve, I must apologize for not responding sooner to your most complimentary review of your three week trip to Bhutan, but I've been in remote parts of Ethiopia without internet. Most travelers to Bhutan spend an average of 8 nights in Bhutan, visiting just western Bhutan. I was truly impressed that you and your wife wanted to visit the entire country and arranged your busy schedules to accommodate a personal journey to Eastern Bhutan with Karchung, our field manager, and then return to Paro to begin a twelve night cultural trip from Paro to the Tang Valley with the rest of your family. What an epic trip! Because of your keen interest to meet and engage with locals, scholars, artisans, and professionals in the field of health and government, we were able to arrange personal visits to expand your understanding of Bhutan. I've known Karchung for more than twenty years, and there is no doubt that he is an 'ambassador' for his country. His wide range of knowledge, engaging and caring personality are just a few reasons our travelers love to travel with him. Thank you for requesting Karchung lead your family trip - he thoroughly enjoyed every minute and was delighted to show you his new home in Paro, also. On behalf of myself and Karchung, we thank you for your high endorsement of our services. Tashi Delek! KZurich Fung

Just came back for a trip in the Spice Islands , another wonderful trip from Far Fung Places led by Kathleen Fung . The Spice Islands are very rarely visited by tourists ( I would say almost never!) but the incredibly warm welcome of their inhabitants is just amazing ! Not to

Catherine, What an enthusiastic and positive review! The Blue Manta team really looked after us on land and sea, and we couldn’t have been in better hands. Bruce Carpenter enlightened and entertained us with his nightly talks on the spice islands. Thank you for mentioning so many of the other compelling aspects of these rarely visited islands. Our next challenging is to make sure the marine environment remains pristine so that others will come to know the beauty of these special islands. On behalf of my team in Indonesia and in San Francisco, thanks for your wonderful heartfelt review! KZurichFung

Mary, Your description of the Spice Islands as hidden jewels is spot on.The islands are so rarely visited, we saw only a handful of foreigners on our three week trip. I don't think any of us could forget the warm welcomes on the many islands we visited - few villages had ever seen foreigners, but they asked us into their homes, invited us to tea, and even asked us to hold their babies in our arms. I was especially impressed with the mixed Christian and Muslim villages that were co-existing harmoniously. The islands are a haven for brilliant marine life, and judging from your compelling underwater photos, we knew this to be true. But, as we learned from a renowned marine biologist in Banda, local people, cultural tourists, and diving boats need to be educated in marine conservation to keep the waters clean so that the islands will continue to be unforgettable experiences. Thank you for your wonderful review of our exploratory cruise to the Spice Islands. KZ Fung

Our first trip to Africa and my husband and I were well taken care of by Kathleen Fung. The 12-day safari included overnights in luxury tents inside national parks, which gave us the advantage of early game drives ahead of the crowd. All activities were perfectly coordinated.

Dear Kathy, Tanzania never ceases to impress. Seeing animals in the wild is one of the greatest shows on earth. Our team of driver/guides, James, Habib and Hussein, had the keenest eyes in the world. What spotters they were! Thanks for mentioning you appreciated the camps 'inside' the parks because it does make a difference getting ahead of the crowd. The staff and management of the Tulip, Dunia Camp, Olivers, the Retreat and Kuria lodge went out of their way to make sure we were well looked after in every way. On behalf of Far Fung Places and our great team in Tanzania, we thank you for your lovely review. KZFung

Debbie, Thank you for your complimentary review of Far Fung Places, Karchung, and his team, especially Rinchin, Karchung's driver, who never ceases to amaze me with this talents. Karchung is one in a million. He goes out of the way to make sure our travelers' ambitions for the trip are not only fulfilled, but he does it in a very personal way. I'm delighted that you appreciated the lectures given by experts in their fields. We are honored to have a reincarnate Lama address very complex issues like Buddhism for the western mind, and Jigme Drukpa, a renowned musicologist explain the importance of folk music and give a performance playing traditional instruments. It was a pleasure to create a special trip to Nepal and Bhutan for you and your husband. You certainly did your homework: you came up with highlights you wanted to experience in Nepal and Bhutan, which made it easier for me to develop a trip that met your expectations. On behalf of myself, Lori and Dennis, and Karchung in Bhutan, thank you for a lovely review! KZ Fung
