        Such an amazing tour. Thank you Namgay and Ata for showing me around your beautiful country. Learning about your temples, fortresses, monasteries, schools all the while enjoying the surrounding nature is definitely an experience I'll treasure forever.

        Bhutan Jomolhari trek and cultural tour
        In mid-April I was fortunate to visit Bhutan, with a couple of friends. Our trip had two components, a trek in the mountains and a cultural tour. The itinerary was planned and prepared by Thinley from Bhutan Best Inbound Tour. We did the Jomolhari trek over seven days. While the trek was quite challenging at times, it was fabulous and the scenery was stunning. We had great weather and many flowers, including the wonderful rhododendrons, were blooming. Our guide, Jigme, was very experienced with mountain trekking and his excellent knowledge of plants and birds was a bonus. While trekking, he provided us with valuable guidance to keep us moving and to get us over the high mountain passes. On the trek we were very well looked after by the trekking team led by the legendary chef, Candel. The food was good and plentiful and tent accommodation was very comfortable. As part of our cultural tour, we visited many beautiful dzongs, temples and monasteries in addition to doing some short walks. The highlights were the Tiger’s Nest Monastery and the beautiful Punakha Dzong. We had a very good driver, Dorji, who enabled us to visit many different places, often driving on very windy roads. Our accommodation was very good and included a night at a farm stay run by a lovely woman called Leki. It was very peaceful and we were able to enjoy the local drink, ara, and try the home-cooked food. Thinley, at Bhutan Best Inbound Tour, was very helpful with providing all the necessary information and in organising flights, visas etc. He responded to our questions promptly and everything was very well organised. Thank you Thinley, Jigme, Dorji and all the trekking crew for a great trip. I would highly recommend Bhutan Best Inbound Tour if you are planning to visit Bhutan.

        wonderful experience and highly recommended
        I recently embarked on a journey with this tour operator, and it turned out to be a phenomenal experience from beginning to end. The highlight was undoubtedly the tour guide Chencho, whose expertise and passion about Bhutan, Buddhism, nature, history... enriched my understanding and appreciation of each site we visited. His knowledge was deep and engaging, making complex historical and cultural contexts accessible and fascinating. Additionally, Chencho went above and beyond to accommodate my food allergies, ensuring that I could enjoy delicious and safe meals throughout my travels. The driver (Jigme) was also excellent. He is very professional and provided smooth and efficient transport. I highly recommend this tour operator for anyone looking to delve deep into the wonders of the area with the comfort of knowing they’re in expert hands.

        Unforgettable trip
        The trip was amazing and beyond words and expectations our guide and driver were amazing . From the moment they picked us up at the airport to the very last minute, our tour guide and driver tried everything they could to make the trip is delightful, make sure we see everything we like to see, helped me with my hike to the Tiger Nest . The car is always spotless and the drive is smooth and safe. The food was delicious We definitely recommend this company from the moment to start buying the tour through Viator .

        Trip of a lifetime!
        My husband and I had a wonderful 10 day tour of Bhutan! Our guide, Namgay, was extremely knowledgeable about all the places we visited and was willing to answer any question large or small. Our driver, Lobzang, was also excellent, navigating the winding roads with ease and making it a very comfortable journey. We were even there over our 5 year wedding anniversary and they surprised us by getting a cake to celebrate!! That was very special and made our hearts swell. We loved eating all the local food, especially ema datshi (chili cheese—the national dish). Namgay even showed us how to make one of the kinds of chili paste (we will try this when we get home). Would highly recommend the Bumdra 1 night trek, it is no joke but a beautiful hike and camp site with a much easier trek down to visit the Tiger’s Nest Monastery. Overall, the trip of a lifetime!

        A trip that will leave a lasting impact on our lives :)
        This is by far the most heartwarming tour we have experienced. Ms. Deki was careful about listening to our needs. We described to her that we are culture nerds and nature lovers, and she helped us sketch such a fulfilling itinerary. Bhutan is stunning, and the people are so kind. But our experience would not have been even half as beautiful without our guide, Mr. Ugyen Wangchuck and our driver, Mr. Nyingma. Our guide, Mr. Ugyen was so hospitable. To us, he was the face of the world renowned kindness that the Bhutanese are said to possess. He would always accommodate our requests and ensure that everything is upto the mark. During our treks he would check on us every now and then, he would go ahead and book us into pure vegetarian restaurants as per our needs, he would help us with our doubts about Bhutanese history and society with so much patience. His soft spoken nature and knowledgeable attitude has taught us a lot. He loves his culture, and values the resources, and this is what any tourist would be lucky to witness. For instance, inside the monasteries, he would always explain the history by taking us to the side in order to respect the place and other devotees. We respect such gestures a lot as they are necessary to conserve the delicate fabric of this nation. Our driver Mr. Nyingma was always polite to us and accommodate all the stops we requested. Some of the places we wanted to visit were really uphill and involved tricky, unpaved roads. But he would skilfully take us through without any reluctance. Both of them were always present to pick us up before time. Hats off to them. We would love to recommend them for any friends' Bhutan trip. They showed us the best of Bhutan with their good nature and personable professonialism.

        Incredible glimpse into Bhutan’s culture
        A great local tour company that arranged a bespoke tour for me for 5 days / 4 nights to see Paro, Thimpu and Punakha. Everything was seamless and so easy to communicate ahead of the travel. I cannot recommend enough to visit this beautiful and peaceful country. A huge thank you to my guide Lhab Tshering (LP) for being so kind showing me his country and so generous sharing stories about his life. He knows so much about Bhutan, its history and nature. You’d be very lucky to get him as your guide!

        Excellent Company Guide and Driver
        What a fantastic company to work with. We went direct to them as we had some unusal request for a 4 day private tour for me and my wife. Deki could not of been more accomodating and was very efficient in addition to being very honest as we had booked the tour a year out when Visa fees were double what they are now, When the fees dropped she contacted us to advise of the refund. We just finished our 4 day tour and our guide was Tandin Dorji and our driver was Choda. Both of the young men were excellent. They always went out of their way to help us. Tandin was excellent in explaining the Culture, beliefs and Buddhism to us at every site we visited. On the climb to Tigers Nest they went at our pace and helped us to make sure we were safe on the way up and down. Bhutan is a beautiful country and I highly recommed you visit the country as there is some beautiful things to see. Tigers Nest is one of the top things we have seen in having travel to over 85 countries around the world. I can not recommend this company and the above people we worked with enough.

        Extraordinary experience with something for everyone who likes the road less travelled.
        We just got back from our customised and highly flexible cultural and cycling/hiking/rafting 12 day tour of Thimpu area and Central Bhutan. A unique and deeply impactful insight into a country changed so little by time and 20th century modernisation. We had a private car, and fabulous guide and driver, and stayed at 4 and 3 star local hotels, as available. All were (at the least) very comfortable and often with extraordinary views and charm/decor. Pricing was very good for the experiences and service we received.

      I had a wonderful stay in Bhutan thanks to our lovely guides Namgay and Ugyen. The itinerary was well planned and executed, all our hotels/resorts were comfortable and our trip unfolded seamlessly.

      We had a chance to explore numerous peaceful temples, vibrant dzongs and two museums during our visit. We also hiked some nature trails and spent time in the wilderness.

      The highlights of my trip were:
      1. A snow man I built with the guides at Chele La pass (pictured below)
      2. The cherry blossom trees of Bumthang valley
      3. Watching the monks perform rituals at the temples

      We had booked our trip for Bhutan with Bhutan Best In bound. I got a reference through trip advisor itself. Mr. Thinley approached us with all the details and best quote. I got very comfortable with the approach and decided to finally go with Bhutan Best In Bound. But before we finalized the itinerary, I made Thinley answer and solve my 100+ queries. He was patient enough through out the the itinerary planning and did not follow up at all. He gave us enough time to decide and get back to him. My family and I were very comfortable. The itinerary was best and exactly what I was looking for.

      The best part came when we had to make payment. I was figuring out the mode of payment , Bhutan being treated differently in banking channel in India and it took longer than expected. The date of travelling was approaching too fast but not even once he followed up or dropped an informal inquiry about the payment. That was the best feeling that you are going on a foreign land and the people want you to experience their cultural and get the best experience for you and not necessarily run behind money.

      Unfortunately, the day before our departure, Bhutan restricted entry for tourist due to COVID 19 and we could not travel to Bhutan. Thinley refunded the entire advance in a short time without me following up for it even once.

      Bhutan best in bound is an example why Bhutan is called kingdom of happiness because its the people who make it happy place. I have my itinerary ready and as soon as things get back to "new normal" post COVID-19, my family and I will make a trip to Bhutan and that too with Bhutan Best In Bound, no second choice.

      Our first visit to Bhutan couldn’t have been planned and executed better than that done by Bhutan Best inbound tour.
      From the moment we arrived at Bagdogra airport everything was taken Care of. We met our guide Mr Tandin at the land border crossing in Jaigaon. Warm greetings followed by quick action for immigration formalities. Our driver Mr Lobzhang was waiting for us in Phuentsholing and in minutes we were at our hotel.

      We had a 9 day trip covering Thimphu, Punakha, Phobjikha and Paro. The best resorts we liked were dhumra resort and trema linka. All others were excellent too. Only the one at phunsoling could ve been better

      Mr Lobzhangs driving skills are incredible. That said he is a professional driver holding a PD license. You can sleep and chill in the winding roads and rest assured you’ll be taken care of till you reach your destination. He is also very humble and has an Excellent demeanour. Very helpful too.

      Mr Tandin is a gentleman with good knowledge of Bhutan s history, religion, politics and what not. We were always engaged in interesting conversations throughout the journey. Of course he explained everything beautifully during the visit to various places and monasteries. He was very encouraging during tigers nest hike and ensured we not only summit but have a good experience

      Ms Chimmi was the one who we kept troubling with our phone calls for the overall trip planning. Must say she was very patient and understanding and helped us plan an awesome trip.

      For the readers, I would say don’t think about the SDF while visiting this beautiful country. The money is being put to good use and you’ll realise after visiting here!!
      Cheers and happy 2024

      Wonderful experience with this agency. Very responsive and knowledgeable and professional. They were flexible to our requirements and specific needs of our family. Our guide was Tandin and our driver was Jigme. They were both really nice and friendly and well spoken. Tandin was amazing with my son on the hike up to Tigers Nest. We spent a whole week together and everything went smoothly. Bhutan is a beautiful place and the people are lovely. Highly recommend!

      It was like taking a step back in time. No new modern buildings in big cities like Thimpu and Paro. They kept the same Bhutanese architectural heritage. The people all wore traditional costumes during working hours. Got lots of opportunities to try Bhutanese food in hotels as well as a picnic by the river and in farm houses. Taking my time in an 8 hour hike to the Tiger's Nest with lunch at the mid point, I was later taken to have a relaxing stone bath infused with artemisia to help get rid of muscle and knee pains. A truly pampered trip!

      We were mesmerized by Bhutan's pristine beauty and had such a memorable time there. Thanks to our tour operator Thinley of Bhutan Best Inbound Tours and our guide Namgay Wangchuk and driver Kado.
      Thinley personally attended to all our requirements and customized the itinerary as per our needs making for a relaxing trip with unique experiences especially for my parents. He was ultra quick in his responses.
      Our Guide Namgay made us fully familiar of the socio- cultural - historical facts of Bhutan and the various sites that we visited through his excellent knowledge on the subject. He took care of our smallest needs to make us relaxed n comfortable and the trip enjoyable without any worry or any anxiety. Everything was managed by him effectively n efficiently!
      Kado found to be a highly skilled driver making us fearless n worry-free in winding roads n hilly terrains with narrow passes thro his efficient maneuvering of the vehicle.
      Namgay and Kado both were well-behaved and we spent fun time listening to bollywood songs, happily chatting on long journeys.

      Trip to Bhutan was a mesmerizing experience for me and my family. I have visited places like Paro, Phunaka, Thimpu where we have seen many monasteries, fortresses (or dzongs) and dramatic landscapes.
      Taktsang Monastery and Tiger Nest were most attractive to see. Bhutan in-bound team was thoroughly helpful for every instance that we had.

      Extraordinary planning by Thinley, Namgye (tour guide) and Pema (driver). They were super flexible to accommodate all our requests. Guided us extremely well, in terms what we should see and what should be skipped to make the most of our time in Bhutan without compromising on the quality. Namgye explained the culture and history behind every site visited extremely well, and also encouraged us to complete more difficult hikes like Tigers Nest. Namgye and Pema also took care of our dietary restrictions and helped in suggesting to us the right places to shop at. Also, must highlight that they are by far the most economical - I had reached out to multiple local operators and not only was Thinley the most prompt and proactive but also gave us the most amazing experience at most reasonable price.
