    Me and my husband had great time visiting Buthan this february. We arranged our 5 day tour through Buthan Vip Service, which was perfect. The service, courtesy of the staff, quality of the visits, They even arranged a birthday celebration for my husband . Mr. Sherab kindly made all the arrangements, Timpa, our guide was a very nice guy and Punzo drove us carefully all around. A dream team! I strong recommend a visit to this lovely coutry with Buthan Vip Service.

    After Checking on your itinerary, I presumed and seems that ALL LUNCH for the whole tour are NOT INCLUDED.
    If that's the case, how much shall we prepare for all the lunch expenses and in what currency?
    Please Clarify.

    I traveled Bhutan three times from 3 agents and I find Journey highlander as one of the best tour operators in Bhutan. They don't leave any stone unturned to key you most out of Bhutan.

    We travelled to Nepal from 14/11 to 28/11/19. The trip was organized by Rik Van Belle, MyHimalaya (Ghent, Belgium) in corporation with HimalayanDreamTeam Kathmandu (Mrs Indira Kathiwoda)

    From the start (a warm welcome and diner), to the end of the trip we felt a personal attention and every day Indira stood in touch with us, and was ready to adapt our tour to all our wishes.
    We also met very kind guides, drivers and porter, who friendly wishes to show their country and looked after us very well.
    Everything was perfectly arranged: the pick-ups at the hotels, the city walks, the trekking, the flights and transport. We stayed in beautiful hotels and charming guesthouses and lodges and everyone was very friendly.
    We definitively recommend this organization for a visit to Nepal!

    Thanks a lot, Indira and her team, and Rik!

    Yak Intl (Sithar) arranged an absolutely wonderful visit to Bhutan. He was easy to deal with by (email) even though there was a 12 hr time difference.

    We are back home now with lots of great memories and images. The Yak tour guide and driver (Kinga and Nima) showed us their country in a very caring, thoughtful and in a very personalized way. Kinga is a budding artist, and gave us great insights into Thangka art. The sites and activities chosen kept us busy, interested, but did not fatigue us. Our visit happened between festivals, but Sithar was able to put on a nice cultural program with some local artists. The food and lodgings were excellent, and we were able to get some recipes from the cooks to take back home. Ema datshi is now a staple in our home.
    Kinga and Nima were outstanding tour guides and companions. We were very well taken care of. My compliments on having an incredibly competent and caring team.

    its wonderful to get as you want when your travelling to rejuvenate yourself after every day works.
    i was very much amazed to receive a grate hospitality, from the airport pick up to drop off it was managed so well.
    the guide and the driver were very much friendly and intellectual. the tour package they provided was worth the sum paid.
    Over all i recommend World Tour Plan if your planning for a trip to Bhutan.

    I just completed an enjoyable and enlightened 5 days in Bhutan. I booked through Touradar with World Travel Plan. My guide, Ugyen Phuntsho, was very competent in answering my questions and made my comfort snd safety a priority. The driver was also very good who took extra care to ensure a smooth ride.

    I was impressed of the depth and breath of Ugyen's knowledge on the culture Bhutan as well as the many places we visited. He typically had a story to tell that provided the background and the significance of the place visited as well as on the national religion of Bhutan- Buddhism. Ugyen had an excellent command of English which made our interaction efortlessly.

    I strongly recommend using the World Travel Plan Tour company and Ugyen Phuntsho as the guide for future bookings in Bhutan. Thanks for a job well done.

    Outstanding! Highly recommend Bhutan Acorn Tours! They are very professional. They got us our visa in 2 days, stayed in contact through WhatsApp, and provided an outstanding guide, Dema, and an outstanding driver, Karma. We had such an amazing trip in this beautiful country. We booked our tour through Viator.

    Bhutan acorn tours beyond met my mom and mine expectations. From the time we arrived we were met with kindness and genuine compassion. Our guides, Thinley and Lhendup were passionate about teaching us Bhutanese history, culture, politics and let us experience genuine Bhutanese customs. We left with only one regret, that we didn’t book for a minimum of 7 days!! Thank you Bhutan acorn tours for making our short but memorable trip to Bhutan nothing short of amazing.

    Beautiful scenery, friendly people, not over touristed (yet...) and wonderfully atmospheric hotels at the high end of the price range. Our guide, Tasha Dema, and driver, Sonam, both spoke excellent English, were very knowledgeable about the country's customs, culture, etc. and made sure that we got to do all the things that we wanted to do, off the beaten path or not.

    The views from Dochu La Pass were incredible, Punaka Dzong was a very wonderful experience. Good shopping for fabulous handwoven textiles and Central Asia turquoise, coral and silver ethnic jewelry. Food is mostly mediocre, even in the best hotels. An all around first class travel adventure, but done in relative comfort.

    Truly unique and amazing country. Visiting Bhutan experience is lifetime memory. Wonderful people and spectacular scenery. Experience with Druk Gi Gyem was extraordinary as they took care of smallest thinks too while designing the itinerary.

    Hi there,

    I had a great time in Bhutan and am very happy that I chose to travel with Acorn Tours. My tour guide and driver were so thoughtful and accommodating and did a great job of showing me around the country. No complaints at all and would definitely visit again.

    The tour was very beautifully crafted and we explored the most beautiful parts of the kingdom of Bhutan. Me and my wife are both hikers and love to explore the wilderness. And there’s nothing like exploring the far flung dragon kingdom of Bhutan. Our 2019 Bhutan tour was the most amazing so far among all our trips around the world.
    We started off by arriving at Paro Airport, a wonderful lush valley surrounded by high mountains. It was a world out of this world. The drive from Paro to Thimphu unfolded numerous sacred temples in exotic locations. The Tachog Lhakhang was one of our favorite with mystical energy in an ancient set up.
    We also added 2 nights’ stay in Punakha valley to the Bhutan Walking & Hiking Tour. We hiked to Lungchutse Gompa from Dochula Pass on our way from Thimphu to Punakha. From the Gompa the view was epic (on top the world); we have commanding view of the Punakha and Wangdue valley and bird eye view of some highest snow covered peaks.
    The hike to Zuri in Paro was leisure one but the trail offers wonderful opportunities to capture the verdant Paro valley and Paro Dzong.
    There were ample of other hikes that we have equally enjoyed such as:
    • Chelela Pass to Kila Gompa hike
    • Jungney Dra hike in Haa
    • Tango and Chari Monastery in Thimphu
    • Khamsum Yulley Hike in Punakha
    • The Epic Tiger’s Nest Monastery (must visit )

    We have also covered cultural sightseeing places such as:
    • Buddha Dordenma
    • Changangkha Lhakhang
    • National Memorial Chorten
    • Painting School
    • Traditional Medicinal hospital
    • Paro Museum
    • Punakha Dzong (must visit)
    • Sangchen Nunnery in Punakha
    • White and Black temple in Haa etc.
    Bhutan Best Inbound has been so accommodating with our ever evolving changes in the itinerary even after our arrival.
    The entire trip was fantastic! The Best Trip of our life. Thank you Bhutan Inbound.

    Sorry we took a long time to give the review
