I would like to send a Thank You note to you personally as well.

We have enjoyed a very special, well organized, meaning- and eventful, happy and just WONDER-Full time in your lovely country. We came back filled up with fresh air, yummy food (especially all the organic vegetables and potato dashi, my favorite), with memories of beautiful Dzongs and Monasteries and above all, having spent all these days with two wonderful people, Tashi and Mr. Beam.

Thank you for organizing all the pre-arrival matters and all your emails to my various questions. You can be assured that with wholeheartedly promote and recommend Little Bhutan to all our friends here in Singapore and in Europe.

All the best and much success

Firstly, a very big thank you to our Guide Sonam and driver Deepak for making this trip an excellent experience for us all!.

The brilliant narration of history, culture and tradition brought great depth and insight into this ‘amazing’ country. True to the slogan “Little Bhutan. Big Experience!”. We appreciated our guide’s in depth knowledge of Buddhism and the ability to interest us and explain any doubts clearly.

The knowledge gained from this experience, though may not be fully retained, it truly enlightened us and is greatly appreciated.

Furthermore the unexpected challenge and the feeling of accomplishment during our hike to the Tiger’s Nest Monastery was a remarkable experience made possible by our wonderful team of the guide and friends. Suffice to say, we now have a Little Bhutan Family!.

The food, too, was well catered and we were well looked after. We were also never rushed & the tour followed a pace that we all felt comfortable with.

Overall this had been an enriching and remarkable experience. One we shall always remember…Thank you team Little Bhutan!

First of all we would like to thank our great “happy” guide Sonam as well as our polite and “always keeping everything tidy” driver Yonten.

We had much of fun with them, being the best representatives of GNH and a great team.

Besides that we experienced many friendly people; in no way intrusive like in many countries. As a side effect, lots of untouched forest, so many birds and dogs, lots of Dzongs and Goemba/Chortens and everywhere where your eye turns, lovely prayer flags.

What we take home beside all that is the recipe for the delicious “Ema Datsi” .

Thank you Land of Thunder Dragon and Gross National Happiness!
