Trip to BhutanMr. Damber was extremely professional and helpful. Excepting for the hormonal driver we were assigned, it was a good trip.
Trip to Bhutanone of tthe best holidays we have ever spent. Absolutely hasstle tour with lovely hotels and very friendly car driver cum guide. Night stay at Hotel village at punakha beside the small water stream was the most memorable part of the tour.
Trip to BhutanIt was a great trip, and everything was planned as per the need, there was no rush we were allowed to visit each place with peace and have our time absorbing it. Though I have some complaints about the hotel in paro, apart from it everything, in words of Chandler, was perfection. Himalayan range view from do Chu la pass.
Trip to BhutanJourney Highlanders arranged a great trip for us. My husband and I were looking for a peaceful vacation and that is exactly what we got. The driver and the organiser were both very friendly and helpful. The hotels could have been better, we had opted for 4 star hotels but in Phuentsholing, Punakha and Paro the hotels were 3 star properties. The original property booked for us in Paro was not upto the mark, but when we requested Journey Highlanders to change the hotel they instantly obliged and booked another decent property for us. Overall, the entire journey was hassle-free and peaceful.

Trip to BhutanHi, I went to Bhutan with my wife for a week. It was a wonderful experience. Golden vacations informed me about the itinerary well in advance and also added me to their business whatsapp group to address any issue. My driver name is Raj Pradhan and he knew Bhutan well so there was no issues visiting any place. Overall, it was a good trip for honeymoon. Please talk to the driver on every day basis the places in your list shared by the agency. If it is not posssible to visit the mentioned place, you can request him to take to other destination.
Trip to BhutanOur trip was a memorable one. Everything regarding our booking was marvellously handeled. The highlights were definitely the trek to TIger's nest monastery, Dochula pass, and the suspension bridge. Our driver cum guide was extremely nice and helpful. Staff in all the 3 hotels (we covered Paro, Phunakha, and Thimpu) was very friendly and the food quality was good as well. Do try Chicken Paa and Kewa Datchi.
Trip to BhutanKNG is the best agent you can go ahead for booking I would say! Mr Karna is very helpful, cooperative and understanding when it comes to catering to any of our needs! All the hotels and staff were wonderful except Hotel Kenny in Thimpu where the room is very small. Mr Karna was always ready to help us out and as it was my birthday he definitely tried to make it more special. Even if we wanted to go for shopping or any Bhutanese restaurant, he would take us there! The hotel staffs were very courteous and helpful. Truely said, Bhutan is a country of happy people. Hike to Taktsang Monastery was the most memorable part, Mr Karna made all efforts to make sure our hike was smooth. I specifically would mention Sonam, who consistently hiked with me n encouraged me to complete the hike!!!
Trip to BhutanIt was a very nice trip. Travel agent provided what he was committed. Only hotel park at phinsoling as per 3 star hotels category. Thimpu and paro trip.
