We are back from a fabulous vacation in Bhutan! it was splendid right from the moment we stepped out of the aircraft. The heavenly bhutan team viz. Ram ( guide ) and Pasang ( our driver) really took care care of us and was very polite and kind. They made sure our time was well managed and our expectations were met. Thanks for arranging a wonderful and memorable experience for us.

Vidhya Raman,

Since day 1 - which was months before my trip in Dec, I contacted Nishant to get his advise on our holiday trip plan to Bhutan. Amazing planning gave us peace of mind. From the moment, we landed at Paro airport, we met Sajan and Karma, and they are the BEST and BEST guide and driver we had. I am personally very thankful to both of them for the extra care that was given to our child (age 08). Sajan is very knowledgeable and always makes sure we are being taken care and we feel good... We have gained extra karma (hopefully) by doing some meditation in 2 temples (all thanks for Sajan for guiding us). On the other hand, Karma put our safety on his top priority with his driving skills throughout the whole trip. Biking trip in Thimpu was something that we remembered forever. We felt so safe with Sajan leading us and covering the whole biking trip. From people to hotel, we have the best in class as well. All the hotels that were arranged were well above the expectations - fully equipped with heater. The farmhouse that we stayed for 1 night was great too. The owner lady cooked the best radish beef + chilly cheese for us. And we are very thankful to her and Sajan for asking her son to take us around the village area and share some stories with us as well. We wish team Destination Bhutan all the very best and thank you so much for hosting us in their beautiful country.

Bala Subramaniam,

Had a wonderful 7 days trip traveling places in Paro, Thimphu and Punakha organized by Destination Bhutan. I highly recommend them if you are planning a trip to Bhutan. Since my first email to Nishant in November, he provided excellent communication and kept me informed on all we needed for the trip in December. Everything was arranged according to our requests. Give highest praise to our guide Sajan who is very attentive, organized and patient. We learned so much about the country's history, tradition, current administration and life style from him. He is also a very good story teller who let us understand Buddhism when we toured the temples. The driver handled the driving so well that the discomfort on some bumpy roads seemed to be minimized to the least. These two gents always carried a smile and were so friendly that made us feel comfortable during our first visit to this country. Thanks very much for bringing us such an unforgettable experience. Hopefully will come back soon.

Natwar Mall,

We were scouting for a Travel expert who can guide us and accompany us in our excursion to this wonderful country. And then, fortunately we came across Destination Bhutan, who gently held our hand and took us to an exciting journey to this magnificent country. They helped us in preparing an itinerary with not only the minimal driving times but also one with covering all major tourist attractions. Our guide and driver were amazing and took utmost care of us through their gentle behavior, safe driving, knowledge sharing and what not. We are extremely happy to have chosen Destination Bhutan as our Travel Operator and definitely recommend them if you are looking forward to have the best of the best vacations to Bhutan. Our heartiest thanks to them for this unforgettable trip and we wish them all the luck.

Prabhu Sathyamoorthy,

We had a really great time in Bhutan, all the arrangements were up to the mark. The staff from Destination Bhutan were very well mannered and cooperative and the hotels chosen were perfect. The highlights of our tour were 1.Phobjikha Valley – indeed the Switzerland of the East. 2.Our tour guide Sajan – We still remember and miss him. He became a friend to all of us the moment he received us at the airport and by the time we left Bhutan he became the highlight of our trip. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and humourous. Thanks a lot Sajan for the wonderful time. The hotels chosen in all the cities were absolutely great, rooms were tidy and clean, hotel staff was friendly and meals were also great as we had requested for vegetarian meals.
