Cultural holiday to Bhutan
Unbelievable and above expectation in every respect. The trip offers a multitude of things: nature, very nice people, culture, Buddhist spirituality, lovely walks, you can't go wrong going (more)Ingrid Blatz
The festival we saw was brilliant with highly colourful costumes and masks. Our visit to one monastery was special as only our group had the chance to just listen to the chanting monks with their drums and horns. (more)Daniel Collings
From £2450 excluding flights
Bhutan culture & home stay tour
Memorable parts? It is a hard question as the whole holiday was very memorable. The Tiger Nest walk, the Gangtey Valley, the Lika Monastery as well as the Wangditse Gompa were the places we liked the most Tips? I would tell them that Bhutan is much more touristic than what I thought but, despite that it manages to remain unspoilt and very spontaneous. Being more touristic also means very well organized and with very good hotels. Local benefits? Yes, I think so Overall... (more)Ludovica Cavallari

Himalayan cultural tours, Bhutan, Tibet and Nepal
The whole trip was memorable and exciting but one highlight was the hike up to the Tiger's Nest Monastery in Bhutan - quite a grueling walk for a Sunday afternoon but what memories! Also, visiting Lhasa in February when pilgrims from the furthest reaches of Tibet were there was a joy. (more)Carolynn Peace
The most memorable part of the holiday was seeing new places and meeting new people from completely new cultures. (more)Dietrich Yap
Watching the sun go down on Everest on the most perfect evening. Celebrating Diwali with the locals were the most memorable parts of the holiday (more)Rosemary Chinchen
From £1835 excluding flights
Himalayan cultural tour, Bhutan and Nepal
Outstanding - an adventure plus spiritual pilgrimage. (more)Merlene Nieuwoudt
The friendliness of the people we met in both Nepal and Bhutan was one of the highlights of the trip. ...I thoroughly enjoyed this holiday and would recommend the tour brothers Achut and Keshav who run the tour company. (more)Margaret Good
Excellent. The places are really worth seeing, people are all very kind, the guides were all absolutely wonderful. The young guide in Bhutan and the driver really did all that they could to get the most and the best out of the time we had. (more)Laura Palmucci
From £1943 excluding flights
Bhutan holidays, cultural tours
My holiday was amazing the guides were so helpful and made my experience wonderful. The most memorable part of my holiday was the beautiful scenery on the treks in Bhutan and Nepal and the 51 metre Buddha high on a mountain in Thimpu is impressive and inspiring. (more)michele allix
The most memorable parts were the visits to the Dzong in Thimpu and Tiger's Nest...It was very good. The operator in Katmandu were attentive and well organised as well as very helpful people. (more)Jan Brettingham
I really enjoyed my trip and feel that travelling from Nepal allowed an excellent opportunity to visit two - so different - places. I really enjoyed both counties. In Bhutan, Punakha was a favourite place for me as it's a little more rural and remote. (more)Julia Rosenbaum
From £1105 excluding flights
Bhutan walking holiday
The scenery was overwhelming, giving the feeling of being on top of the world. The forested mountains seemed to go on forever. The highlight had to be the hike up to the Tiger's Nest, an amazing experience. (more)Patricia Lawrence
Climbing up to the Tiger's Nest on our last full day in Bhutan WAS pretty great - but I think my prize goes to seeing big pink orchids growing on the side of the road - and having the leisure to go photograph them, thanks to our wonderful driver. (more)Julie Puttgen
From US $2300 - US $2550 excluding flights
Bhutan tiger safari holiday
Memorable parts? Seeing a tiger when on foot in Bardia - only 30m away! There are to many wonderful memories to mention them all. Bhutan was absolutely wonderful. If you are able to cope with walking long distances, eco- accommodation, repetitive & basic food, lack of electricity, heating, and all other amenities then this is the type of holiday for you. Eastern Bhutan is so very different to the western side. No Dzongs and different peoples who speak a different language. It is not... (more)Beatrice Claire Potter
From £3995 excluding flights
Western Bhutan walking holiday
Bhutan was just so beautiful...It really is a special place and travelling there was a delight - slow paced, beautiful and inspiring. (more)Pam Richardson
Excellent; loved the Buddhist culture of peace and tranquillity and want to bring it home with me! (more)Vicky Unwin
From US $2100 excluding flights
Chomolhari trekking holiday, Bhutan
Memorable parts? Lots. The friendly people who seemed enjoyed to have their photo's taken. The scenery, the hundreds of prayer flags. As we trekked at high altitude, the many people we met driving horses, cows & yaks. But the best experience was caused by a mistake. On one night of the trek we lost our horses & luggage! Our clean socks & toothbrush went one way & we went another. Our guide rescued the situation by arranging us to stay in a yak-herders hut. The family very kindly took... (more)Alan Reimer

North East India, Bhutan and Bangladesh tour
Completing the walk to the Tiger's Nest in Bhutan was the most memorable part of the holiday. (more)Sid Carter
Excellent! The most memorable parts of the holiday - the sheer variety of places visited, the warmness of the reception everywhere across Bangladesh, the poignancy of many of the images across the three countries, the expanse of the scenery, the devotion of the people to their religions. (more)John Lace
Bhutan was a highlight...The curiosity of the Bangalees is nice. (more)Kirstine Manson
