    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.

    I had an amazing week in Bhutan and I cannot recommend a tour with Bhutan Acorn highly enough! My tour in Bhutan was incredible: seeing the unique landscapes in person, learning about Buddhism at the many temples and monasteries we visited, and most of all, the dedication and attentiveness of both my guide, Kezang, and driver, Tashi, throughout the whole tour.

    From the get-go, I had a very positive experience interacting with Bhutan Acorn online. When I first enquired about a tour towards the end of 2023, I was told that the government had reduced the Sustainable Development Fee, which I had not known; Bhutan Acorn were transparent and ensured I would not have to pay any more than needed. Furthermore, as I made the booking through their website, I paid for the tour through a bank transfer, and I ended up accidentally paying slightly over the price of the tour. Bhutan Acorn notified me of the overpayment and after my arrival in the country, promptly repaid me.

    I was very lucky to have Kezang, to guide me, and Tashi, to transport us, around Bhutan. As a solo female traveller, I felt safe and accounted for throughout the whole week. Kezang and Tashi were very patient with answering my questions and took many photos of me. Kezang also communicated what we were doing very clearly each day and I literally and figuratively was able to take a back seat. Both Kezang and Tashi really went beyond ensuring that I was more than comfortable, from accommodating to my preferences for our itinerary, and offering to carry my belongings for me.

    The trip was full of unforgettable highlights. The homestay with Aum Leki in Punakha was very special to experience the way of living of a Bhutanese person. After our hike in Phobjikha Valley, as we had extra time, Kezang took me to the Black Neck Crane Information Centre, which was not part of the itinerary. From there, I was lucky enough to see the last three cranes that had not yet flown back to Tibet for the year! I attended the Annual Paro Tshechu Festival wearing a kira and saw traditional dances. And of course, the hike to Tiger’s Nest was very rewarding. While I was initially concerned that the itinerary would be packed, it definitely did not feel that way for me in reality; I always had time to unwind and did not feel too tired at the end of each day.

    To all travellers thinking of going to Bhutan: it truly is a unique country that is definitely worth visiting! I miss Bhutan and will settle with telling everyone at every opportunity I can to travel there, especially with Bhutan Acorn. Thank you for a wonderful trip and for these amazing memories that will last a lifetime.

    We just completed an 8 day tour of western Bhutan, with a 3 day trek to the Sagala Pass and Chelela Pass. Bhutan is a beautiful country and exceeded all my expectations.

    Bhutan Acorn T&T were fantastic! In the planning stage they were very responsive and understanding of our several requests for change to the itinerary. They were very organised and efficient in arranging the visas, government fees and flights to Bhutan.

    Our guide (Norbu) and driver (Thinley) were also fantastic and went above and beyond in looking after us. They were both very kind and helpful and their knowledge of Bhutanese history, Buddhist practice and local flora and fauna were exceptional.

    I would not hesitate in using Bhutan Acorn T&T again.

    After waiting for more than three years, I finally did it. I visited Bhutan again. This time I stayed for longer days. This trip was customized one of 15 days .I stayed mostly in farm house and I did lots of hiking . My favorite hike among all is taktshang hike and phobjikha hike. What more you need when you are provided with good car and an experience guide. Enough to make best of memories. I was lucky this time about food. I was serve alacarte. Thanks to the owner for looking into it. My menu wasn't repetitive unlike previous visit.I will visit again next year with my family. Until then see you. Thank you for your great hospitality. Namaste 🙏

    With the help of the whole team (Lopzang for the organization, my driver Mr. B and my guide Thinley) I had a great trip. Everything was perfectly organized, the guide was very knowledgeable and introduced me to the rich culture of Bhutan and Mr. B was always driving safe and sound.
    Although we had a detailed itinerary planned upfront (which perfectly aligned my wishes and expectations), I always had the flexibility to to change plans or adjust whenever required. Not only was I impressed by the sights we visited as well as the Bhutanese culture, also the hotels and the restaurants we visited where tasty and with a nice atmosphere. I could not have wished for a better trip. 10/10.

    Talking to other travellers during our stay in Bhutan, we realised that we had been very lucky with our agency. The tour itself was well organised, the communication beforehand was excellent, fast and helpful.
    We also had an amazing guide, Norbu, who made our trip magical and very special. With his incredible knowledge of the country's history, recent developments, Buddhism, flora, fauna and so much more, we couldn't have asked for more. Coupled with his openness and humour, we enjoyed every single moment. It was quite impressive to see his professionalism despite his young age. In addition, we so much enjoyed observing his interaction with local people, especially kids.
    If you plan to book this tour - ask for Norbu as your guide.

    Karma and my guide Jorden Llamo created a very special, customized trip for me as a solo traveler. From the first contact, the team was attentive, warm and professional. I was in Bhutan for 18 days starting with an 8 day trek. Jorden was with me for the entire trip as she is both a trekking and a cultural guide. The Jomolhari trek was fantastic with beautiful Himalayan mountain views. I then toured the country east to Bumthang through the Chumey valley. The trip was exceptional! We had a phenomenal and highly skilled female driver Domo. Our all female team laughed a lot and garnered attention wherever we went. We were able to be flexible depending on weather, energy level, etc. It was a trip of a life time. I highly recommend Acorn Travel and would use there services again without hesitation.

    Dema and Kencho met me at Paro airport coming in from India and I was immediately put at ease with their friendliness and Kencho's careful driving through the mountainous roads in a very comfortable, warm and solid SUV car.

    Unfortunately I became very ill the next day (something I had eaten in India)and everyone, Dema, Kencho, Karma, Lhendup and the hotel staff were so caring and attentive and offered to take me to hospital. Luckily I was a lot better after a good sleep and some hydration salts they gave me. I felt comforted that I was in good hands being on my own in a foreign country.

    The rest of the trip was amazing and I didn't feel that I had missed anything seeing monastaries, dzongs, a museum, shopping, lunch at a farmhouse, attempting archery and the beautiful scenary. The weather was beautiful and sunny during the day and the hotel rooms were warm and comfy at night. They made sure I was going at a pace I was happy with not feeling 100%.

    I feel that I made some beautiful friends in Bhutan and I would love to return for a festival and do the Tiger Nest hike.

    I definitely would recommend Acorn Tours who genuinely go above and beyond from the visa and flight bookings to caring for you as a person.

    Thank you Dema, Kencho, Karma and Lhendup.

    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.

    Many of us had a first experience in Bhutan. Nevertheless, we couldn’t expect any better hospitality than Bhutan Dyang Adventure. We were a group of 19 female aging from 20-65 including a baby. Our needs were different, and they continued to fulfill all the demands. Hotels at Phoentsholing was extraordinary, Thimpu hotel and location was also great. They took care of our food habit and provided all the meals in buffet. In Thimpu the owners themselves came to meet us and provided us a car for a night sight experience. They included all the beautiful sight seeing that many others won't be able to provide. We were invited to a traditional Bhutanese cultural program which was outstanding and arranged only for us. We also got Bhutan's traditional food as a treat two times.
    Our whole group can't but thank you enough for providing a whole taste of the beautiful country in just five days!! I won't forget to mention that all the privileges were given at the cheapest rate. I'm sure no other can give such experience better than them. Bhutan Dyang Adventure is the best and we'll again do our trip with you soon!!
    Love and good wishes from Bangladesh 💕 💕
