First class company with attention to detail
I was contact person for organising our trip. The company always gave clear and prompt response to all my ems. Flexible in package options and organised all the necessary documentation and flights, even sent us boarding passes for flights. Our guide Namgay was very informative, knowledgeable and helpful in every possible way. Our driver was very careful and both guide and driver were friendly and accommodating . Hotels were very good.
We visited lots of places and thoroughly enjoyed our trip.
Would recommend this company to anyone
Bhutan itself is a special place. However you need someone to help you prepare your trip, someone to drive you around and someone to guide you and explain things to you. Thinley, Rinchen and Phurba were all great. Kind, flexible - giving hundred percent to accommodate or help us. Just an example of Genuine Kindness : after the hike to the Tiger Nest, Rinchen was waiting for us with milk-tea (that she prepared) and biscuits.
We had a packed itinerary and we managed to do everything. I highly recommend Bhutan Best Inbound tour!
Under auspicious Buddhist Gods we have visited such a beautiful and peaceful country. We were very impressed by Jambay Lhakhang in Bumthang District and Kichu Lhakhang in Paro.
It was heart touching the festival in Tamshing Lhakhang where the actors wore a mask from 15 th century.
We visited Jakar Dzong, Burning Lake , Punakha Dzong, Taktsang Monastery, Paro Dzong, Thimphu Dzong ( where we saw the second festival) and many others Chorten.
Finally at Kichu Monastery we were blessed by his Holiness Namkhai Nyingpo Rinpoche.
All was possible because of Thinley, Phurba Tshering our guide and Rinchen our driver.
We hope our happiness will last our entire life.
