Bokar travel is a relatively small tourorganisation which organises trekkings, city visits and other outings in Bhutan. I did an 8 days tour in western bhutan. 1 driver and 1 guide accompanied me. Thats a nice way to learn about The country, the culture and its people. Bhutan is a clean country with beautiful nature, beautiful tempels and Dzongs and nice small villages. Traffic is easy going and hardly any littering. Hotels are very expensive since they have not much 4* hotels, its either 3* (60 usd) or 5* (700-1700 usd). The main negative item to mention is the large number of streetdogs which sleep during day time and bark all night!! Bokar tours gave me good service and was flexible towards some personal demands. The trekking towards Tigers Nest, if the horse service is not available, should not be underestimated and is very heavy and halfway was good enough for me.....

We were accompanied by a good guide (Wangchuk) and a perfect driver (Denling). We started with them to explore the very "nice" roads in the East, we were very happy with the good driver. the Dzongs were perfect, we enjoyed it very much; also the West, with the tiger nest as a top was very nice. We slept 3 nights in a B&B, which was wonderful for us. The food was, although always rice included, wonderful; with a lot of local dishes included. The nice thing was also the very peaceful rest in Bhutan. Bokar tours is for sure a very good alternative for this tours...

We have for a long time wanted to see Bhutan, as we are big lovers of Asia in general and Buddhist countries in particular. From the time we met with the Belgian representative of Bokar tours in the Netherlands, who is very passionate about the country, to the end of the tour it had been one big overwhelming experience for us. Everything was organised perfectly well with the freedom to decide yourself as well. Hotels and food were certainly above our expectations, but what really made our trip was the thoughtfulness, expertise and personal attention and care of our guide, Dorji, as well as our safe and excellent driver Hisji. Dorji has a passion and pride for his country, his religion and culture and really wants to share this with his guests to educate them and make them as passionate as him about Bhutan. The country itself is certainly wonderful. We've been to over 80 countries but Bhutan will always have a special place in our heart. Bhutan's people are very friendly and pure, it's culture unique and well preserved, it's temples and Dzongs extraordinary beautiful as well as its mountains and scenery. Thank you Bokar tours, Dirk, Dorji and Hisji and hopefully till next time!

We booked a 7 day tour "highlights of Bhutan" via Dirk Verboven at the Belgian office of Bokar Tours. Our review is very simple : we honestly have NOTHING to 'complain' about !! Before we left, we met Dirk at the travel fair in the Netherlands and we communicated quite often via email. We also had the choice in between homestays, hotels, eco lodge .. and Dirk adapted the standard travel itinerary to our interests. Great TIP from Dirk : you can check in Royal Bhutan airlines online 24hrs before and should take a seat on the LEFT handside from Nepal to Bhutan for incredible Himalayan views !!) Upon arrival in Bhutan, we were greeted by our guide Sonam and driver Choki. We had an excellent 7 day trip together, very informative, and absolute fun ! The personal service we got was really TOP, also the car Choki was driving was luxury for us. Both Sonam and Choki did their utmost best to give us the best possible experience of Bhutan. Everybody in Bhutan is extremely attentive & helpful. Food was plentiful (buffet style) and very tasty, be sure to try the local chilly cheese, hot but yummie !! We miss it already … Bokar Tours is highly recommended !!

My Brother & I visited Bhutan in September of 2018. The short trip was a somewhat spontaneous addition to a planned trek in Nepal. The Trip was Amazing- Bhutan is an amazing country, in an amazing landscape, with amazing people. I would suggest to anyone pondering an adventure there to go without hesitation. We literally finalized the booking/tour two days before going during a layover in the Narita airport of Japan. I was initially wary of any adventure that involved a mandatory “tour company & guide” however myself & my brother could not have been happier with the experience provided by Bokar tours. From the beginning Karma was exceptionally accommodating to our itinerary- although the actual duration of the trip was short, Karma provided all the experiences & sights we had hoped for & wanted to visit. Especially, as I mentioned, on such short notice. In regards to the actual “tour” - as I mentioned - I was somewhat apprehensive of having my experience be “guided” (of course, its Bhutan, so there is no other options) however my reservations were entirely unfounded. Are guide Sonam & Driver Tashi are incredibly good people, offering us hospitality that made us feel like family. The entire trip we felt as if we were traveling with old friends who only had our best interest & most rewarding experiences in mind. Although this was my first time doing a “tour” with a company - I have since been on a few more “guided tours” in other countries & I hold the experience I had with Sonam, Tashi, Karma, & Bokar tours as the gold standard. Plus Karma makes a potent cup of espresso! If you’re thinking about visiting Bhutan- Go! And if you are looking for a well organized, compassionate, & welcoming tour company- go with Bokar tours!
