“Bhutan trip was fantastic”
Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

I had never been on a group tour before so had some reservations about this trip. These evaporated within minutes if meeting our travel companions and our guide Karchung. The whole trip was amazing. Well planned and delivered with enough flexibility to take advantage if unexpected events that enhanced the experience. The places we visited and stayed at were all special in their own way. A magical highlight was visiting the family farm and having a meal prepared by Karchungs wife, Karma. Organically grown veges bursting with life. To be greeted by a family of endangered Golden Langurs when we arrived was incredible. Karchungs local connections and knowledge if all things Bhutanese meant that we left feeling like we fully understood the culture and the people if this beautiful and unique place. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

“Bhutan Tour”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

I just returned from a terrific 12 day tour of Bhutan that was put together and lead by Far Fung Places out of San Francisco. The trip was fascinating and lead by our two Bhutanese guides - Karchung and Dawa, who were extremely knowledgeable, personable and accommodating. Karchung went so far as to host our small group of 9 travelers at his family home for lunch giving us all the opportunity to experience first hand the Bhutanese culture and way of life. The trip included, sightseeing, visiting historic temples, hiking to the Tiger's nest and attending a major cultural festival in Paro where we observed the unfurling of the thankga. Far Fung also arranged very knowledgeable speakers throughout the trip to enhance our experience and provide additional perspectives on the country. A trip well worth taking and kudos to Far Fung Places for the planning and execution of a first rate itinerary!
