    Starting from the very beginning my communication with Bhutan Travelers was fast and very smooth, any questions I had about the Trek were answered in a professional and prompt way. My guide Tshering and the trekking team were the best! They made the trip as enjoyable as possible with all the experience they gave us. From experiencing a delicious meals on Trek, hot stone bath and climbing the exotic Tiger’s Nest monastery. They made it incredibly enjoyable! Fully Satisfied with the services provided by Bhutan Travelers and the team. Definitely One of the best Agency, highly recommended.
