Our personalized 5 Nights, 6 days tour to Bhutan was a truly memorable & unique experience. Our guide Phuntsho & driver Deepak are both honorable ambassadors for this stunningly beautiful country. Courteous, respectful, extremely knowledgeable, sincere, friendly, entertaining and fun.

Together we shared many laughs and also profound experiences such as an impromptu & unexpected invitation to observe a Buddhist prayer recital in a monastic nunnery.

As mother & daughter traveling together, we found ourselves in caring and safe hands.

Communicating with Tenzin & his team at the office was straightforward, clear & concise planning advise pertinent to our interest.

Our sincere gratitude to you all for a genuinely amazing cultural experience in a country steeped in tradition, culture, history and beauty.

Great Trip!

Sonam was very knowledgeable on everything and made the experience more enjoyable than expected.

I was thoroughly looked after from the start to finish.

Communication was easy prior to the trip and all my questions were answered quickly via email.

Deepak was a friendly and safe driver and was always smiling.

The highlight of the trip was definitely the Tiger’s Nest Monastery.

The trip is a little expensive, but that keeps this part of the world ‘Authentic’ & protected from unwanted capitalism. I hope that Bhutan is able to retain this unique quality as this is the main draw for a tourist.

A short but very memorable experience.

Thank you!

I have got many valuable information from the very friendly Mr. Sonam and even the driver Mr. Kezang was very friendly and helpful.

Congratulations to the two of them.

And even congratulations to your company! You were very fast with your response and were very helpful in preparing my journey to Bhutan. Thank you for sending me all the useful information.

The Guide had in-depth, far-reaching knowledge and was easily able to respond to even my most specific questions about Bhutan. Most importantly, however: The guide was truly kind and warm-hearted.

Additionally, the driver clearly had safety as his number-one focus and he helped make all travels a pleasant experience.

I was completely satisfied with the entirety of my experience.

Prior to my arrival in Bhutan, I received all of the necessary information from Little Bhutan. This was helpful in terms of my pre-departure preparation. Whenever I had questions, Ms. Tshering answered very kindly and politely.

Thank you very much for everything. I was so happy to go to Bhutan and would like to say “Thank you for everything” . I would be honoured to serve as a bridge between Little Bhutan and Korea.
