    Sangeetha's 6 days trip to Bhutan

    Trip was very good. Bhutan Rental and Travel, Mr. Samir did an awesome coordination, very polite and arranged a very good cab & driver Kunzong. Samir guided us not to travel via phuentsholing on road, as it could be a tedious one. Which we felt a valuable one, as we met many travellers who came via road felt the same. Kunzong became a very friend and guided us all through the trip. He is very punctual. He guided us and came with us when we trekked to the Tigers Nest. He helped us during shopping. The travel part of it we were very comfortable, both the flight and cab. The hotel(Lekhar Resort) provided in Punakha could have been better, that hotel service was average. The agent could have provided one of the hotels in Paro or Thimphu closer to the town, which would have helped in shopping. One area can be improved is, the places in itinerary should be explained. We felt zoo wasn’t worth the penny. Our driver took us to a place called Simply Bhutan in Thimphu which was much better than the Heritage museum. End of the day it was a very good vacation, we enjoyed every bit of it, it was well arranged. Thanks to Kunzong, our driver and guide.

    Mahesh's 6 days trip to Bhutan

    We recently traveled to Bhutan. We were so excited of this trip. We liked the Dreamcaster's deal and accepted it. The itinerary given by them was impressive which included almost all tourist spots of Bhutan including Punakha. But unfortunately we were disappointed as we had to stay at same hotel for 3 days as we did not get permit. We reached phuentsholing on Sunday expecting permit next day[Monday]. The agent tried best to get the permit on Monday but did not succeed due to huge crowd at immigration office. As Tuesday is local holiday so immigration office was closed, we had to wait until Wednesday and got it done. But there is catch again. To enter Punakha one has to get another permit at Thimpu. Thimpu had Tuesday to Thursday 3 days holiday due to tshechu[annual festival]. But as per our initial itinerary the trip suppose to end on Thursday. So I was wondering why the Thimpu immigration office holidays were not considered while preparing the itinerary!? And we extended the trip by a day. Though we tried to get Punakha permit on Friday, we could not make it, so dropped it. :( Apart from this, the Dreamcaster tried their best to keep us calm and sent us to Jaldapara National Park for safari on Tuesday. Also they made necessary alternative arrangements for stays etc. People from Dreamcaster were kind and helping not money minded. They take responsibility. One suggestion to Dreamcaster. They may have to consider few things [considering immigration office holidays and other things which can affect the trip or inform traveller in advance or ask traveller to change the date of travelling etc] while preparing itinerary, then they can offer great service. Travel Triangle had assured us that they take a full responsibility of the trip. But neither took responsibility nor solved any problem. For everything we had to call them ten times but no use though. Bhutan is the really nice place to visit. But beware of the local holidays which can delay your permits and harm your peace of mind during the trip like mine.

    Urvi's 10 days trip to Bhutan

    I don't think so my words can do enough justice to share my experience with travel triangle and specially with Bhutan INC. It was my father's dream to travel Bhutan with the family and this was the first time we contact some agency to arrange our trip generally we have planned our all trips by our self only. i was just trying to provide them a little luxury this time. Travel Triangle: They have provided us so many agencies who can fulfill our requirements and those who can fit into our budget. No inconvenience at all. I was in contact with Varun Sahani. He treated us so well. Bhutan INC : It was indeed one of the most beautiful experience with Bhutan INC. They exactly planned our trip the way we want. People from Bhutan inc are so helpful and nice to us. We first came in contact with khini who understand our requirements, expectations from this trip and guided us so well before and during the trip. Navin(tour guide) and Karma uncle(Drive). These two person have performed great role to make this trip like never before for us. Navin has some remarkable abilities as a tour guide. he was actually love his profession. As a guide he understood our life style first and treated us the same way like he is one of us. He never allow us to get bored. He had strong bonding with all of us at the end of the tour. We are still in touch and share greetings to each other. Thanks Navin for make this tour like never before. Karma Uncle : He is a gem as a person. So calm, composed and damn punctual and always keep smile on his face.He kept vehicle always neat and clean all the time. He gifted his phone to us as a memory of him. Bhutan is beautiful because of the person like him. At the end Hotels were good all over the trip . Hotel from Punakha (Pemakarpoo) and Phobjikha (Pemba farm house) are my personally favorite. vehicle (Toyota Haice) was perfect for our family. At the end, Thanks Bhutan, Bhutan INC and Travel triangle.

    Shruthimk's 8 days trip to Bhutan

    Driver was good person, helpful guy and well mannered guy.. agent we met only one day , there is no much comment on him. Hotel in Punakha and thimphu was not good. Food was major problem.. we couldn’t cover very few places Because of driver delay. However driver was very friendly and energetic. Overall it was good. We obtained permit of stay very quickly because of agent duo it was crowded. Tiger nest , 108 stupas and large budda temple

    Experience was good. Service by travel agent and driver was also good. Only the hotel at punakha was not upto the mark. Breakfast at punakha and phuensholing had very less variety. The culture of Bhutan and its landscape.

    Manjeev's 7 days trip to Bhutan

    We have selected a package of 6 Nights and 7 days with 4 star hotel. None of the hotel provided to us were 4 star hotel. We were charged incorrectly for 4 star and were forced to stay in 3 star hotels. 1) Hotel Druk in Phuentsholing - we didn’t get Hot Water in bathroom. They could not rectify it. Also when drinking water got finished, when asked for refill at 6:30 am, it was not provided. 2) Hotel Jumolhari in Thimphu - Room was very small. Service was good. 3) Hotel Lekhar Resort in Punakha- was really pathetic place to stay. Bed sheets had food stains, towels provided were smelly, comforter were smelly. There were cockroaches in the room. Toilet was shaky. Water in the hand wash area will come only if we turn on/close at the inlet below, not from the tap in hand wash sink. We checked out and were doing sightseeing in punakha,- suddenly we got call from hotel that we did not pay for dinner. How come they did not realise this at that the time of checkout. We went back and paid. 4) Hotel Kuenphen in Paro looked like a homestay/travel lodge. We complained about the hotel quality to our Travel agent - Bimal from KNP Tours and Travel who was unapologetic and insisted these are quality hotels. We were cheated for the money we paid. Bhutan is very beautiful country full of greenery and free of pollution. Beautiful valley and clear river water. Must visit country during vacation to regain your energy levels and mental peace.

    Jack's 7 days trip to Bhutan

    We, a group of students from IIT Kharagpur had been for a 7 day trip to bhutan. The service was good. The hotels were great. Pema and asif were always available to help in case of some doubts or problems. The hotel provided at Punakha was awesome. The staff made great effort to ensure that we don't miss our return train as our itinerary was little tight.

    Ashish's 7 days trip to Bhutan

    Please find below the review of our trip(my wife and myself) to Bhutan from 1st Oct to 8th Oct. Day 1: Went as expected. Day 2: As per our itinerary, we were supposed to cover Kharbandi Monastery as well as Crocodile breeding center in Phuentsholing. Even though our travel permits were ready by 10 am,the permit for our cab took too long. We were told that our journey to Thimphu would start by 12 pm. However, we continued to wait till 3 pm local time. Worse, we had to vacate our room by 1 pm as per the hotel policy and hence, we continued to wait in the lobby. If permit was to take this long, Himavat should have arranged a room for us or better still, they should have arranged for a local sightseeing in Phuentsholing itself while the cab permit was in the works. While we were waiting at the lobby, we were constantly being stared at by the staff and it was clearly evident that they wanted us to leave the premises at the earliest. They asked us at least a couple of times as to why our cab had not arrived.It turned out to be such a frustrating and disappointing experience for us as our precious time was wasted for no fault of ours. Our good mood was spoiled and a great holiday spirit was killed. In the end, we could cover only Kharbandi monastery. As per the cab driver, Mr Milan, he let us visit the monastery only because he was waiting for his permit papers(as if he was doing us a favor). He also refused to let us visit Crocodile breeding center because as per him, it was getting very late. We covered the journey in very risky conditions as it was raining heavily and there was no light on the roads. This was because our trip started way too late. Please note that as per the itinerary, we were supposed to reach Thimpu by evening time and cover a few destinations like craft bazaar, handicraft emporium etc. However, we could cover none as we reached Thimpu very late and simply retired to our room. Day 3: Although most of the Thimpu sightseeing spots were covered, our driver, Mr Milan, showed reluctance in covering a few spots(like local craft bazaar) which were clearly mentioned in our itinerary. He did not have a copy of the itinerary and it appeared as if we was showing around the spots at his whim and fancy without caring for the itinerary. When we objected, he plainly told us that it is easy for tour operator to add all the destinations but for us, drivers it is not feasible to cover each and every spot. If that is the case, then what is the point of having the itinerary in the first place? Eventually, a few spots were not covered as the driver was simply waiting for the 'deadline' of 5 pm to call it a day without caring for whether we had covered what was mentioned in the itinerary. This experience left a bitter taste in our mouth. Day 4: Though it went as planned and all the places were covered, our driver again showed a little reluctance to cover one of the places, Chime Lakhang in Punakha. He asked us whether my wife and I were having trouble in conceiving as the temple is only visited by those who are not able to bear children. We found it to be very offensive and something which was trespassing on our private zone. However, knowing that we were in a foreign land without much support, we decided to ignore the comment. Eventually, we had to persist hard to get him to take us to the place. I was not aware that by opting to travel via Travel Triangle/Himavat Destinations, one also has to provide response to such 'private' questions. Day 5: We covered Tiger Nest, Paro and it was a wonderful experience. However, in the evening, when we requested our driver to take us to the main market area, which was again part of our itinerary, he once again showed reluctance and was least inclined to take us there but somehow relented when we requested him repeatedly. We had to literally beg him to take us to the market area. Moreover, the hotel was also very substandard and very far from main market area which further added to our woes. While we were on our way to the market, our driver 'informed' us that the local sightseeing spots to be covered the next day(Punakah Dzong and National Museum) were not open and provided a lame reason for closure that which we did not buy. He instead try to make a deal with us by offering us to drive us to Chelala pass for an additional amount of INR 3000. We had our suspicions and hence we checked with some local shopkeepers as well as a beat cop and we got the confirmation from them that the places were not closed as mentioned by the driver. It is a clear case of the driver cheating us and trying to rob us of our travel experience just to earn some quick extra bucks. This was very unprofessional and did not go down with us at all. Once we knew the truth, we refused his 'offer' and insisted on still going as per the itinerary. Day 6: Both the tourist spots mentioned above were open and our driver's lies were nailed. But we decided not to confront him there due to the same reason as above i.e. we were in a foreign land with no support. hence, we pretended that we just wanted to click some pictures outside the museum even though it was closed but 'accidentally' stumbled upon the ticket counter and realized that it was open. However, as mentioned earlier, it did not go down well with us at all. Day 7: The same driver picked us up from our Phuentsholing hotel to drop us at Bagdogra airport. On the way, it was hot and humid and we requested the driver to turn on the ac. However, to our utter surprise, the driver told us that he would turn on the ac only if we pay him INR 500 extra. He did not even consider the fact that throughout the tour we cooperated a lot with him and despite his lies and lack of professionalism, we did not utter a single word during the trip. We found his 'offer' to be insulting and refused. We also requested him to make a stop a t a shop where we could buy the local tea leaves. Even though he initially promised, later on he made a lame excuse and did not make the stop and again disappointed us as if to snub us for not accepting his 'offer'. To sum it up, except for the hotel in Thimphu, the other hotels, especially the one in Paro, were quite sub standard. Throughout the trip, our driver made a mockery of the itinerary due to which we could not cover many listed spots. we got the impression as if we were at his mercy and if he was in a good mood, only then we could cover the places. This is not the experience that I was expecting when I booked the package from Himavat. I would clearly not recommend them to any of my friends or relatives.

    Swapnil's 5 days trip to Bhutan

    We were planning to visit Bhutan and we thought to try planning with Travel Trianle. We got everything what we were looking for which fits in our budget from Sunshine Travels, Bhutan. They provided best possible tour plan and we were happy about the quote and plan. Sanju from Sunshine Travels managed our entire tour and I must say, the planning was amazing. We covered Thimphu, Punakha and Paro cities. We didn't face any problem in our entire journey. From airport pickup to airport drop it was smooth plan. Sanju and Lalit were cooperative, support and service was really great. They were constantly in touch making sure that we don't face any kind of problems. Sukman, Amit & Tinku were our driving buddies. Thanks to them also. Complete piasa vassol experience, perfect planning and humble people. Looking for next tour with Sunshine again. Photos (on instgram) and blog coming soon (I will cover all details there, and hotel reviews will be on MMT)... I am happy with Sunshine travels with my recent Bhutan tour. However I have little suggestion to Travel triangle, if they can improve it will be best deal for everyone, additional payment charges are little high so if travel triangle can reduce it, it would be really great thing.
