This was a great tour! Acorn Tours did a phenomenal job with everything :D The days were really busy, but they were pretty flexible if we wanted to switch things around.

I embarked on a remarkable journey to Bhutan together with my sister in January 2024, and the entire experience was nothing short of extraordinary. From the seamless online booking process to our departure from Paro, every moment was enchanting.

Our pre-travel communication with Mr. Karma from Bhutan Acorn was exceptionally smooth. His timely and detailed responses ensured we were well-prepared for the travel, and the efficient handling of the visa procedure by the agency allowed us to obtain the necessary permits promptly – within just four working days.

Our joy was further amplified by the presence of two outstanding Bhutanese guides, Tashi and Mr. Bumpa. They not only accommodated our last-minute preferences but also prioritized our safety and comfort throughout the journey. During hikes, they adjusted to our pace and made the challenging ascent to the Tiger's Nest enjoyable. Their insightful narratives on Bhutan's history and culture, coupled with their open-mindedness, great sense of humor and friendliness, made us feel like part of the family after just one week together. I will miss them enormously!

Bhutan, with its captivating isolation and authenticity, left a lasting impression. The people are intelligent and welcoming. For those choosing Acorn, I highly recommend opting for a homestay at Leki's in the Punakha Valley. This unique experience provided glimpses into the daily life of Bhutanese people, delightful home-cooked meals, and serene moments around the fire with the locals. The breathtaking view from the house ensured the most restful and profound sleep I've ever experienced.

Solo female traveler here (American). Visited for an 8 day tour and loved it - felt very safe. My guide, Tschering, was amazing and well-informed, and she accommodated for several personal requests throughout my tour. My driver Dorji was also very nice and a safe driver. Favorite part was the wonderful homestay with Aum Leki in Punakha - the area is absolutely beautiful! Even saw some black-necked cranes in the Phobjikha Valley. The hotels and service were excellent overall. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a trustworthy and reasonably priced travel group in Bhutan.

One thing that I might change would be to include the entry fees for the sites in the cost of the overall tour. It only added around $70 USD extra, but it was more including ATM fees etc. If you take this tour, be sure to hit ATMs in Thimpu to have enough cash for the trip!

I spent 5 wonderful days in Bhutan thanks to Bhutan Acorn Tours. Already before the travel they were super helpful - they took care of every detail of my visa, helped me to change my flight ticket and gave me useful tips to prepare my travel. They even recommended me where to sit in the plan for te best views on the Himalaya. :) I was warmly welcomed by Lhamo, my guide at the airport and she took absolutely best care of me all the time. She is young, dynamic, and treated the itinerary with absolute flexibility, easily adjusting to my requests or interests. She didnt hesitate to jump with me on a rafting boat, lend me her beautiful traditional dress for a photo, or dance with me in a karaoke bar. While she was fully knowledgable, and I learnt so much about this fascinating country and its culture, she also brought me close to the people, I hiked and ate with her local friends, many of them who are buddhist monks, and learnt incredibly much about, and experienced first-handly, buddhism. These holidays, while they were short, they couldnt have been fuller in terms of the experiences, the knowledge I gained and the fun we had. A big shoutout to Karma, the organiser, who also proved to be very reliable and caring all the time. I cannot recommend this agency enough and I am already thinking when to come back next.

Explored Bhutan on a delightful 6-day tour with Bhutan Acorn Tours and Travel in October 2023. Bhutan, an enchanting and tranquil country, feels like a world of its own, surrounded by a profound spiritual ambiance. The warm locals contribute to its inviting atmosphere. The pre-trip communication was seamless, swiftly arranging flights and visas. Received valuable pre-departure tips, such as securing a window seat for a Himalayan view during the flight. In Bhutan, my guide Tshiring and driver Tashi were well-informed, adjusting the itinerary based on my interests and energy levels, making the journey enjoyable and effortless. Bhutan Acorn's accommodations were cozy, including a night in a farmhouse for an immersive cultural experience. Highly recommend embarking on an authentic Bhutanese journey with them, going beyond typical tours.

We were planning our trip for a long time as initially we had booked to go in 2020 -- Karma was amazingly helpful and always answered our questions quickly and thoroughly. He also helped us get our initial airline ticket refund from Bhutan Airlines. On the ground the experience was great. Tashi, our guide, and Sonam and Kado, our drivers for different parts of the trip, were all wonderful. We feel like we got to see the real Bhutan and can't wait to come back again someday.

This was a brief but wonderful trip into a unique country. I travelled with my 40-year old son and although we had not booked a private trip, there were only the two of us on it. We covered a huge amount of ground in the five days and, if the highlight was the trek up to Tiger’s Nest Monastery, everything we did was interesting. We especially like the stay in the remote farmstead. Our guide Tashie was superb - a mine of information and very helpful in all ways. The hotels were clean and comfortable, if fairly basic as regards facilities.
I would absolutely commend this trip for someone with limited time, but who wanted a very good introduction to this extraordinary country and culture

From first contact I was impressed with the caring approach and timliness shown by Karma in setting this up and designing an itineary to suit my interests. The reverence for this devoted country and its amazing architecture leave a lasting impression. Norbu and Nibu were determined to get me to Tiger's Nest on that last rainy day! As a solo woman traveller, I highly recommend Bhutan Acorn Tours and Travel.
