The entire trip was organized flawlessly. The organizers were flexible and arranged a moderate trek for my 50 year old parents. We experienced local Bhutanese food and indulged in the local culture. Namgay was very experienced and friendly, and was a delight to have around. 10/10 would definitely come back someday.
I visited Bhutan on August with my big family.
Our age ranged from 5 years to 72 years. The way our guide Namgay attended to this variance of age was impressive.
From the time I started corresponding with Mrs. Geeta till Mr. Namgay saw us off, everything went smooth.
The highlight of the tour was Buddha Statue, Dochula Pass, Khamsum Yulley hike, Tiger Nest hike ,Ludron Park, Punakha Dzong & Dzongdrakha.
The hotel provided was clean and neat. The vehicle was very comfortable and well maintained.
The only hiccup that we experienced was occasional rain but luckily we were not affected so much.
We highly recommend Bhutan Inbound Tour
Our group of 6 gets guides and 1 driver because my mum had stroke and couldn't do difficult hiking. Bhutan Best Inbound Tour sent 1 extra guide just to take care of my mum. That was so thoughtful. When we do hiking, Wangchuk (the guide)would accompany mum around nearby. When one of us hurt our foot and felt dizzy during the hike to The Tiger's Nest, both guides actually took turn to piggy back. The boss and his wife, they had dinner with us and gave us welcome gifts and prayer flags. Then when I requested to make mini stupa to place them at the mountain, Wangchuk actually brought his mould from home and even got us the relics with prayers from monk plus digging the sand to help us make the mini stupa. Whatever that we ask, it is never too much or impossible for them. They fulfill all our requests with great enthusiasm and genuine warmth. Wangchuk held my mum's hand and walked with her every step of the way. Car is new. Driver is careful. Guide is informative and friendly.
Truly remarkable service. I highly recommend this travel agency.
