    Rameshbarapatre's 7 days trip to Thimphu

    I am writing to wholeheartedly recommend Thapa as a travel agent for your Bhutan tours. Our recent trip to Bhutan was nothing short of extraordinary, thanks to Thapa's exceptional expertise, attention to detail, and warm hospitality. From the initial planning stages to the final farewell, Thapa
    went above and beyond to ensure our journey was seamless, enriching, and unforgettable. His deep knowledge of Bhutan's history, culture, and hidden gems made our experience truly unique and immersive. Thapa's organizational skills are impressive, handling every aspect of our trip with ease, from accommodations to transportation and activities. His ability to balance flexibility and structure allowed us to explore Bhutan's wonders while also enjoying relaxation and spontaneity. What sets Thapa apart, however, is his passion for Bhutan and its people. His love for the country is contagious, and his connections with local communities and experts enhanced our experience exponentially. We cannot recommend Thapa enough for your Bhutan travels. His dedication, expertise, and warmth will undoubtedly create an unforgettable adventure in this enchanting land. Thank you, Thapa and Guide Chencho for an extraordinary journey!

    Best arrangement with utmost care of customers. Often asking if there are any issues. Couldn't have asked more than this from a travel agent. Sharmila from Greenzone enhanced the experience of Bhutan for me and my friends. Best decision I have made for the trip is to chose Greenzone. Thanks a lot! S
    pecial Mention- Guide: Lobzang and Driver: Kewal. They made the entire trip more memorable and enjoyable. Will surely try to visit again to relive those moments. Apart from the peace and beauty that Bhutan offers, loved the warmth people gave. And the best part is our Guide: Lobzang and Driver: Kewal. Everything else that Bhutan could have offered can be anticipated but not these two humble and friendly human beings. Also, loved the Homestay in Haa Valley.
