My experience from September 20 to October 3rd 2018 Bhutan is a magical place and Raven Tours made it so special for us. From the moment we arrived our wonderful guide Pema received us at the airport with a big smile a great adventure started. He was always optimistic and sharing all his love and care for nature, the stories from his country and people. Details like singing happily with passion for us, bringing hot water in the cold mornings during our 6 day hike around Dagala Trek and showing us the breathtaking views from the peaks of the mountains I will never forget. It was wonderful to be able to visit one of the schools and hear the children sing, learn about their culture and ways to support them with respect. Until the last day Pema was so caring for our group. He made sure I could find a nice wooden carved Buddha to take with me to remember their spiritual teachings and the best spicy chili paste. Our exceptional skilled drivers took us around the most difficult roads along the cliff sides with safety and always offering us the best views. The team with the horses taking care of us during our 6 day hike were impressive, when we arrived to each campsite everything was always ready: the tents, food and hot beverage to drink. The boys carrying and serving tea, snack and lunch during our breaks of more than 7 hours daily hikes were always very helpful and smiling. Every part of the itinerary: the festivals and dressing as locals, the temples on the mountains, the fortress and monasteries, chortens, hikes, wildlife like yaks, takin and cranes, the hotels, paper factory and the stone bath were unique experiences. I can't pick a favorite one because the whole experience was unforgettable. The respect for nature and each other, and the country's effort to stay as green as possible and preserve their culture is admirable. Deepak was great before the trip answering to all my questions, and made sure we had a wonderful time during our trip. Thank you from my heart. I hope someday I can go and visit Bhutan again and see the eastern side. Stay safe, healthy and happy. Carolina Larrea Angermeyer from the Galapagos Islands

It is sad at the moment that nobody can travel because of covid-19 so hopefully this review will be helpful when the travel is opening up again. We went to Bhutan and Raven organized a private tour for us, totally customized. Our guide was Nim and driver Pretti and they were great and fun, very accommodating. 5 stars for sure and if we ever go back to Bhutan, we will use Raven again. Bhutan is an amazing place and love it. Dzongs are amazing and people are lovely. Everyday is a highlight and staying at Spirit Sanctuary towards the end is definitely a nice ending! Some photos here, more photos at my insta @missddch

We took a 10 days special Bhutan Tour with Raven Tours and Trek. My wife read extensively from Tripadvisor and decided to work with Raven Tours and Trek. Fantastic correspondence from the CEO Deepak from the very beginning. Excellent planning. They even know what we are looking for! Special thanks to Nawang and Ashit, our guide and driver, are extremely informative as well as taking good care of us. I highly recommended you visit Bhutan with Raven Tours and Trek. Bhutan is a country with so much colorful culture as well as scenery. Allow more time here if you can.

I chose Raven Tours for my 13 day trip in December and I'm thrilled I did! From my initial contact and throughout planning, Deepak listened to what I was looking for, was quick to communicate, thorough and helpful in his advice and providing answers. Each of his staff I communicated with was the same - very effective and professional, which made the booking and planning process seamless. I had one night in Paro upon arrival and was met by guide Sonam and driver Mr. Tandin; they gave me a warm welcome and took care of me until my early departure the next morning. Nawang (guide) and Sangay (driver) met me in Bumthang and were my partners for the next 12 days as we worked our way westward. They were fantastic! Sangay was an excellent driver, very courteous and enjoyable. Nawang has endless knowledge about his country and is an open book. I soaked in everything he shared, and he was wonderfully patient with my questions and curiosities and requests. I'm so grateful to Nawang and Sangay (and Sonam and Mr. Tandin) for how special they made this trip; I've never felt as connected to, nor learned so much about, a truly remarkable country. I highly recommend a visit - spend as much time as you can, as there's just so much to experience. I am sure I will return to explore more as well.

Since my first contact with Deepak, everything was perfect! Excellent program offered, he arranged the farm house experience for us, easy way for payment! Hotels and transportation was much more than expected :) Nim and Bim made our days in Bhutan! We had a lot of fun with them! Nim knows so much about the history of the country, budism, traditions.... She was never tired of So many questions! Thanks for all!! Also thanks for kinley, our first guide! I will never forget the life wheel explanation that she gave us!
