Since day 1 - which was months before my trip in May, I contacted Destination Bhutan to get their 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 had the best in class as well. All the hotels that were arranged were well above the expectations - fully equipped with heating. 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.
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 Destination Bhutan in November, they 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 Tenzin 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 to Destination Bhutan for bringing us such an unforgettable experience. Hopefully will come back soon.
We are back from a fabulous vacation in Bhutan! It was splendid right from the moment we stepped out of the aircraft. The Destination Bhutan team viz. Ram ( guide ) and Passang ( our driver) really took care of us and was very polite and kind. They made sure our time was well managed and our expectations were met. Thank you Destination Bhutan for arranging a wonderful and memorable experience for us.
“Destination Bhutan” is perfect for a cultural and educational trip to Bhutan, seeing the important old towns, monasteries including the world-famous Tiger’s Nest, however they also tailor different itineraries, if you would be more into hiking or adventure sports like rafting.
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 humorous. Thanks a lot Destination Bhutan for a wonderful time in Bhutan. 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.
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 behaviour, 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.
My friend arrange our girls adventure to Bhutan thru Destination Bhutan. I was based in New Zealand & she was in Dubai at the time; the coordination was complex and yet seamlessly executed. Our trip was everything we dreamed it would be & more - what a beautiful fascinating country Bhutan is!
Destination Bhutan went above & beyond our expectations. I highly recommend this company for their excellent customer service & accommodating staff.
I have travelled Bhutan via the agency “Destination Bhutan” which was not only my best Asia experience but also the best trip I have done so far: trustful people, perfect organization, authentic and unique experience.
I got in touch with “Destination Bhutan” through their website, asking about the visa procedure as well as further details. I got a prompt reply including suggestions for my itinerary.
The daily charges for being in Bhutan as a tourist are 250$ (200$ during the off-season), plus an agency and a visa fee. It sounds like a lot of money and indeed it is quite an amount, if you stay for some days, however the price includes 3-star accommodation, 3 daily meals, a tour guide as well as your personal driver. Putting that value in consideration you might spend more money on a daily base in other countries for experiencing less.
You can adjust the itinerary according to your personal interest together with “Destination Bhutan”, it’s worth reading some books in advance in order to understand what you can expect.
At the airport in Paro, Bhutan, I was welcomed by my tour guide Mrs Dechen and our driver MrsYangzon. From the first moment, I felt treated like a VIP. Spontaneously, we could stop at any place I was personally interested in and of course we visited the places I emailed Mr Nishant in advance. Dechen was able to answer all my questions about Buddhism and the history of Bhutan – and I asked a lot!
To sum up, I can only recommend visiting Bhutan once in your life time and I would only do it with “Destination Bhutan”. Looking forward to visiting that fairy tale place again soon!
The thought of travelling to Bhutan can fill people with dread as it is not exactly on the easy flight routes and then the cost to get there and stay there, is much higher than expected.
However, when all is said and done, I contacted Destination Bhutan who took my desires, transposed them into a plan and boom - away I went. We decided to stay at the top scale Bhutanese hotels which definitely did not disappoint. In fact, they were better than some Western 5 start hotels that I've stayed at. The travel itinerary was focused, tailored to my wish list and everything was made super easy.
They kept in touch with me via WhatApp and the booking was super super easy.
I would easily and highly recommend Destination Bhutan as a deserving holiday partner. To be honest, I have never used such an efficient company to book everything for me.
Bhutan is a once in a lifetime trip so you don't want any complications to upset the memories. The people are amazing, the food tasty, super safe and the scenery breathtaking.
