      Amazing Experience with the best guides in Bhutan
      We had an incredible time in Bhutan with our guide Namgay and Mr. Pima throughout our holiday. Namgay has deep knowledge about the country and the culture that we learned so much from him, he is a very professional guide with a sense of humour and we loved every single second of the time we spent with him. Initially we were just going to spend in Paro and Thimphu but we decided to expand our adventure to Punakha last minute, Namgay has made it happen without us knowing he was dealing with the agency. Punakha was truly amazing and we would recommend this city to anyone going to Bhutan. Mr. Pima is such a great driver and has got an amazing sense of humour making us laugh so much! We are genuinely sad to leave Bhutan and we would like to thank Namgay, Mr. Pima and AB Travel to organise such an amazing tour for us. We'll definitely come back and ask their service again.

      Best tour
      It is a perfect tour for me to understand Bhutan in a short stay, which is included almost all important monuments in this country, and is also a really private tour that I could make some choice during the trip too.

      A wonderful experience!
      Hired a car from AB Travels for our Bhutan tour and the overall experience was very good. The car was in good condition and our guide / driver Nima was very skilled. We had a very safe and pleasant journey, all credits to Nima. He also helped us with understanding local cuisines, culture, history and was there for us whenever we needed anything. I would highly recommend him as your companion for the Bhutan tour. Our interactions with Mr Wangchu from AB Travels were telephonic only, however he was very responsive and helpful with all our queries. No complaints at all and all smiles for AB travels and Nima! :)

      First rate tour company
      I would highly recommend AB Travel. The owner Pema and I exchanged many emails before finalising my 8-day itinerary. He was always patient, polite and helpful. My guide Namgay and driver Sangay were there to meet me at Paro airport and for the next week we journeyed through this amazing country together. Namgay was a kind, intelligent, knowledgeable guide who spoke immaculate English and who’s aim was to give me the best experience of Bhutan he could. Sangay drove with great care and attention, and despite little English we managed to communicate. I was quite unwell for a couple of days and needed to see a doctor. Namgay took me to Punakha Hospital, where I saw a doctor and got a prescription all within 40 minutes....and for no charge other than the daily ‘happiness’ tax. I needed to rest for a day so we changed the itinerary to do some touring by car rather than walking and we bought food and drinking to aid my recovery. All this as done with much care for me. Bhutan is a marvellous country, steeped in Buddhism with a fascinating cultural heritage, fabulous festuvals, beautiful buildings and gorgeous countryside. If you’re thinking about visiting go soon because investment is pouring in from India and China, hotels are burgeoning and with that will come more tourists so that soon the magic of the country will become diluted.

      Great driver provided
      We booked a car and driver for 3 days through AB Travel. Everything was very smooth and well organised. Highly recommend Nima, our driver. He is not supposed to be a guide yet he helped us out a lot. It was a wonderful experience. The vehicle was very comfortable. Thanks Nima, From Shilpa and Aditi, UAE

Our Pilot cum Guide was Mr. Sonam Yespang was very informative , very friendly , very patient , courteous too and gave us lot of insights of this beautiful Country, its vast culture & traditions. We had a rich cultural experience and got to learn a lot of the Bhutanese People, about the Dzongs, Rivers, The Monks, Mountains , Traditional Attire: Gho and kheera , Stupas, National sports & Food ( Ema Datshi ) of Bhutan etc. Thanks to Mr. Pema and Mr. Sonam for their helpful attitude & guidance , without them our Vacation could have not been so pleasant and memorable.

      Druk path trek
      This was my second time in Bhutan with AB travel. Did the Druk path trek from Thimphu to Paro. Once again, the tour was fantastically well organized, with a very professional guide and driver. Pema, the owner, is very good to deal with and responds to emails promptly. Complete flexibility for activities. Do not hesitate to book with AB travel

      Good holiday in Bhutan
      From the “Meet and Greet” through out the trip the service has been excellent-every need has been met and we would have no hesitation recommending A.B Travel. The trek was very good and it was good to be off the beaten track. The distance each day was perfect. It was also good to see the horses were well looked after and well fed.

      Amazing Bhutan
      Everything was perfectly organised from pick up to airport. Since I booked short notice all the good hotels were booked which the agency had kindly notified to me beforehand to see if i was ok with it. For me I wasnt so concerned on hotels as I was there for an experience of a lifetime. I was thoroughly impressed with Mr Tenzig and the driver, they were so patient and professional and informative on this beautiful country. I would highly recommend this agency! They were fabolous!

      Highly recommended.
      Our guide Kinley was excellent- very informative and made every effort to make us feel comfortable and welcome. He was always professional and was a great friend to us on this trip. Our driver Gembo was wonderful and always focussed on the driving. This trip went fabulously - everything was well orchestrated and every detail was taken care of for us. We are very happy with the services we received and would highly recommend A.B Travel. Thanks for a great vacation.

      Excellent and Truly Professional Handling All along
      We travelled to Bhutan from 15.11.2017 to 21.11.2017. It was a Great experience with AB Travels. Mr. Pema, GM, was very helpful and friendly. It was a wonderful experience. The vehicle was very comfortable. The Driver Mr. Dharmendra was a very careful and safe driver. He was not just a driver but was one among us through out the Journey. We enjoyed his company. After reaching back in Hyderabad also we were remembering chat we had with him ( eg: " Sab OK hogaya?"). The Guide Mr. Namgay also was with us. We expected him to be more proactive. Thank you AB, Mr. Pema, Namgay and Dharmendra. We would highly recommend their services to the travellers to Bhutan.

      BEST travel agent for your Bhutan TRIP!
      We were a group of 15 friends who visited Bhutan in December 2016. Pema was extremely helpful and courteous. Since we were college going students from Mumbai, we had our own questions and apprehensions about the trip but Pema was extremely patient and answered all our stupid questions.He was just a text away and promptly replied to our questions. The communication was perfect and he guided us even before the trip. The driver and the vehicle provided were very good. The hotels were of extremely high standards. Pema went out of his way to ensure that we have a memorable experience. He initially helped us with Immigration documents and formalities while entering Bhutan. He also helped us in experiencing river rafting. The overall experience of Bhutan was made unforgettable thanks to Pema from AB travels. Do not think twice before choosing them. Highly recommended.

      We had a wonderful fortnight in Bhutan organised by AB Travel
      We went to Paro, Thimphu, Punakha, Trongsa and the Bumthang valley. Our guide and driver were excellent and very nice people to be with. They were completely flexible and made great efforts to accommodate our particular interests. All the hotels were of a high standard and most were in glorious locations and we ate really well. The trip was a pleasure from start to finish.

    This is a must trip for Bhutan. Seeing the famous Temple that the Enlighten Rim Pu Che, the Buddhist Master builded. This is the most important Temple in this country. You can group half way by horses and down on foot or waled all the way up and down. The small, narrow and winding road up the mountain was spectacular enough by it self. Seeing the temple build on a steep mountain side was so amazing. Many Buddhist make pilgrimage by walking up and down all the way even when they were very old.
