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.

    We are senior citizen couple and had a very amazing experience. We enjoyed polite and warm hospitality from Mr. Omnath of Journey Hilanders through out our tour of Bhutan. During our stays at Thimpu, paro and Punakha, Mr. Omnath was giving Personal attention. He had given us very reach properties at all the stations and highly comfortable conveyance with humble driver come guide
    added icing on the cake. I wish to visit Bhutan once again with Journey Hilanders just because of Mr. Omnath.

    I visited Bhutan in January and stayed 5 nights in the country. I had no idea where to start when it came to selecting a travel agent (i.e. having a guide is mandatory in Bhutan) and so I checked some TripAdvisor posts and opted for Bhutan Travel Guru. I was NOT disappointed! :) They have been fantastic from beginning to end. We received prompt answers to all our email inquiries before the trip and they really took charge of our entire experience whilst we were in the country. Our guide, Solam, was great, upbeat and knowledgeable which of course we enjoyed and appreciated. Our driver Dawa was also excellent and the owner of the Travel Agency, Tsheten, also took the time to meet us during the week and his hospitable manners made a big difference to our week. I also used the assistance of Bhutan Travel Guru to do the visa application and everything went smoothly. All in all, I highly recommend!

    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!

    It is easy to have a wonderful trip when things go right. It got complicated when things go wrong and beyond anyone's controls. This is the time when you know, you got the right travel company and guide who would do anything they can for you to enjoy the trip you planned for.

    Our group arrived in Bhutan one day before the country banned incoming tourists, closed restaurants and several sightseeing spots. Our guide, Jigme and our driver, Pema, did everything they can to make us have a wonderful trip in Bhutan without feeling any hiccups. There were places that we couldn't go inside but Jigme made sure we visited other places or explained us about the history of the places and things we couldn't see and found us other places that would show us what those closed places would be. Personally, I don't feel like our group missed anything. When we went to Tiger's Nest and Tango, Jigme added some twists for our group to experience crawling through tight caves which I didn't see other groups did, it was fun. We even hiked to other temple near Tiger's Nest. Again, it was only our group that went there.

    More important, our group went to Bhutan to run a marathon. Not only Heavenly Bhutan organized our trip to work well with the marathon schedule, our guide, Jigme, also signed up to run a marathon with us. How can any guides or any travel agencies top that? The General Manager, Silva, met with us later to present each of us a certificate for Marathon completion with some souvenirs.

    We had so much fun and learned a lot about Bhutan's culture, people and religion. At the end, we all become friends. We hope to be back and when we do, we definitely will go ahead with Heavenly Bhutan, Jigme and Pema. Thank you for taking excellent care of us in Bhutan.

    After interacting with a few tour operators of Bhutan, we finally decided to go with Bhutan Best Inbound Tour. As far as the price is concerned, it was more or less the same as with other Bhutan Tour Operators. But what made us choose them over others is a sense of a personal touch .
    Mr. Vivek with whom I corresponded, tried to understand our interest and tailored the vacation as per our need. He was also kind enough to meet us while I was in Bhutan.

    Bhutan is a beautiful place and things move slowly there. It is like being in a different time.
    A week-long holiday in Bhutan was a nice break from the chaos of hectic life.

    Loved the people, festivals , architecture and the pristine environment.

    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.

    Best Bhutan tour I had ever in January 2020 which was arranged by one of the best and top travel agencies in Bhutan known as Bhutan Travel center. it was nice to see the beautiful evergreen mountains. Everything easy for me from the beginning. I would say this agent is customer-oriented and the most experienced agent which I came through. They provided me with the best price with exceptional services. My Guide Gurung and Driver Karma was a friendly person, they made my tour very comfortable. It was a well-arranged tour with a very comfortable vehicle which was very safe for me. The food was really organic, Delicious, and hygienic. The entire tour was exceptionally beautiful. Thank you so much to my agent and the entire team of Bhutan Travel center for organizing my lifetime memorable trip.

    We had booked our trip for Bhutan with Bhutan Best In bound. I got a reference through trip advisor itself. Mr. Thinley approached us with all the details and best quote. I got very comfortable with the approach and decided to finally go with Bhutan Best In Bound. But before we finalized the itinerary, I made Thinley answer and solve my 100+ queries. He was patient enough through out the the itinerary planning and did not follow up at all. He gave us enough time to decide and get back to him. My family and I were very comfortable. The itinerary was best and exactly what I was looking for.

    The best part came when we had to make payment. I was figuring out the mode of payment , Bhutan being treated differently in banking channel in India and it took longer than expected. The date of travelling was approaching too fast but not even once he followed up or dropped an informal inquiry about the payment. That was the best feeling that you are going on a foreign land and the people want you to experience their cultural and get the best experience for you and not necessarily run behind money.

    Unfortunately, the day before our departure, Bhutan restricted entry for tourist due to COVID 19 and we could not travel to Bhutan. Thinley refunded the entire advance in a short time without me following up for it even once.

    Bhutan best in bound is an example why Bhutan is called kingdom of happiness because its the people who make it happy place. I have my itinerary ready and as soon as things get back to "new normal" post COVID-19, my family and I will make a trip to Bhutan and that too with Bhutan Best In Bound, no second choice.

    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.

    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.
