    The tour was great and the locations were quite beautiful. The guide Karma was fantastic, as was the driver Dawa. Would highly recommend.

    Worth noting that the actual price is $200, not $100. You'll be asked to pay the remaining $100 via a follow up link.

    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.

    My trip to Bhutan with Bhutan Best Inbound was the vacation I needed. Bhutan is beautiful, and is also a fount of culture and religion. The way the country is set up and the way both the king and the government looks after its people is truly inspiring. Buddhism is such a bit part of the country, and it was amazing to delve into it so wholly and deeply; I've learnt so much. This was the first tour I had ever taken part in, and if you're hesitating because of the tour aspect or the cost, it's definitely worth it.

    Communicating with Deki about my tour was smooth and made for very easy logistics. She was able to adjust my tour to suit my travel plans and she was both very responsive and very accommodating to my questions and needs. Headache free planning. Deki will walk you through all the paperwork and the visa process, and once that's done, you just need to show up.

    Upon my arrival, I was met by my tour guide Namgay Wangchuk, and my driver Lobzang. Both Namgay and Lobzang were professional, respectful, but also very human. Spending 6-7 days with them was easy and relaxing, and they made every moment comfortable.

    Namgay, my tour guide, was very knowledgable and friendly. He was able to answer all my questions on the country, on the history, the culture, and the religion. We talked everything big and small. As well, Namgay was very attuned to my needs, adjusting the schedule and planning breaks as needed. He also went out of his way to try to schedule specific events for me throughout the trip: meeting the reincarnated master at the monastery, seeing the National animal, trying on traditional wear, etc.

    Lobzang, my driver, was very professional and safe. He was easy to interact with, and very helpful. He drove the mountain roads smoothly and safely, and took the rare gravel roads like a champ. I was impressed, and glad to be in such skilled hands. We spent many hours on the road together, and both Namgay and Lobzang made great companions and guides; carpool karaoke has never been so fun. I couldn't recommend a greater team to guide your travels. I've never felt more cared for and supported.

    This was a fantastic trip, and I wholly recommend it if you're considering it. It is spiritually refreshing and emotionally relaxing.

    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.

    Pelden and his team went above and beyond to make our trip extra special. Our guide and driver spent 9 days with us and they planned a picnic for us on my husband’s birthday. It was such a lovely and thoughtful surprise! My now husband proposed in Bhutan with the help of our guide Leki. I can’t recommend BTC enough. You’ll be in good hands. Thank you BTC!

    We had an amazing 8 nights in Bhutan with Bhutan Acorn. Everything was perfect. Bhutan is simply unforgettable. Bhutan Acorn attended to our needs thoughtfully and responded super swiftly to our enquiries and requests. Every booking and confirmation were made at ease. Karma from Bhutan Acorn brought us a gorgeous pair of Gho and Kira and we were so glad and wore them for the entire trip. Knowing that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, Karma amazingly arranged a tasty cake and a bottle of Bhutanese wine during our stay in Thimphu. Our guide and driver, Tashi and Sonam, made a perfect quartet with us. Tashi is super fun, knowledgeable and attends to our change of plans swiftly and thoughtfully. Sonam is a reliable driver. We asked loads of questions in understanding Buddhism, Bhutan and the secret of their Gross National Happiness. We were mind-blown by the beauty of Bhutan, not just by the clean air, pristine scenery and gorgeous, exquisitely decorated and historic temples and dzongs, but most importantly, the beautiful and genuine people in Bhutan. We love everything in Bhutan. Thanks Bhutan Acorn!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Bhutan Acorn Tours and Travel provided us with a wonderful experience in our 12-day stay in Bhutan. My friend and I were welcomed warmly at the airport by our guide and driver who immediately started us off on our packed adventure in this amazing country. Our guide was friendly, charming, organized, efficient, and knowledgeable. Our driver was cordial, helpful, and always a careful negotiator of Bhutan's winding roadways. Together, they made us feel comfortable and took us on a wide array of experiences, following closely the itinerary that had been promised by Bhutan Acorn. As we had expected, we went to many and varied historical and religious sites, to cultural institutions, and onto a trek into the Bhutan countryside. The 3-day trek in central Bhutan was slightly disappointing as our route took us on and over many roads that had been recently constructed n the area. Our trek crew, though, did a great job in providing us with food and
    shelter. The hotels we stayed in were all beautiful, sanitary, and welcoming. The food was plentiful and delicious, giving us a good sampling of the national cuisine. Overall, we were very pleased with our trip and recommend Bhutan Acorn highly.
