    A group of us (16 friends) went to Bhutan with Swallowtail for nearly 2 weeks with very specific requests - ranging from a private driver and guide for every 2 passengers, to a private festival in Central Bhutan, and a private festival in Merak. Tashi and the team went above and beyond what was expected to deliver excellent service throughout, even when our requests were not usual.

    Everything was top notch, from the guides, to the accommodation, to the flexibility of the team. Would definitely recommend Swallowtail to anyone interested in visiting Bhutan.

    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

    Looked after brilliantly from the moment I landed in Paro. Itinerary was tailor made but I changed it several times when there was something other of interest to see/do. Hotels were varied and interesting, guide Chimi spoke excellent English, had a wide knowledge and would find out anything he couldn't answer immediately. He even lent me his wife s clothes to attend the festival! Driver Wangay was safe and careful in all situations. This is my third visit and looking forward to the fourth.

    We are 9 member group from Switzerland booked two weeks holiday to Bhutan with Book Bhutan Tour for April 2020. Of course, as things turned out the trip got canceled due to the COVID-19 and we reschedule the trip for November 2020 but still the same situation and we asked for a full refund, it was amazing within one week we received our money back without not deducting any amounts.
    We really appreciated Book Bhutan Tour trustworthiness and honesty, once everything is back to normal we will definitely want to come to visit.
    Thank you for your efforts, we look forward to continuing working with you in the future.
    Thank you Ram!
