Unique, challenging and extremely rewarding experience
My sister and I ventured into this trip with Bhutan Aries Tours and Treks. We chose late autumn in a hope for both cooler weather and lesser tourist crowd. Our tour is a combination of culture and light treks.
We had had pleasant surprises from making reservation with Devendra of Bhutan Aries to the conclusion of our entirely journey in Bhutan. Devendra, our guide (Nyisha) and our driver (Norbu) constantly made best efforts to ensure our tour expectations are made.
The tour started with a short trial of trekking, followed by a combination of cultural and scenic sights in the Western part of Bhutan, a challenging and yet rewarding two-day treks, and ended with a relaxing hot-stone bath and a wholesome farmhouse dinner.
We visited traditional paper mill. We were fortunate to have glimpses of some peaks of eastern Himalayas at the Dochula Pass. We adored the Phobjikha Valley while on an easy trek. We stopped by a radish farm and rice fields. The Bumdra trek took us one and a half days to reach the most acclaimed Tiger's Nest. We slept over in a "luxurious camp" which was extremely warm and comfortable at an altitude of 3500 metres. The temperature was 0 degree Celsius outside. Our mobile torch became really handy in the middle of the night.
Bhutan is a very picturesque country, even on a slightly overcast day.
The Bumdra trek would be mission impossible without the home-made walking poles by our driver, Norbu. We thank Bhutan Aries Tours and Treks for the most memorable and unique travelling experiences of late.
Our Guide Karma and driver Bharat were excellent and they ensured we enjoyed our 9 days Bhutan tour. Everything was arranged perfectly.
Karma was a great ambassador of Bhutan. It is obvious he is very proud of his country and its values. He was attentive and ensured we had a great visit. We appreciate Karma's plus our driver ensuring it was a memorable trip. All services, accommodations were seamless. Thank you for ensuring we simply got to enjoy the trip.
Firstly , thank you so much for putting together such a great itinerary and making our 30th wedding anniversary so special . Our guide Karma and driver Kelden were wonderful. Their patience , kindness and care was truly exceptional. We would highly recommend them and would provide references if they are ever required.
The Bhutanese people were very much the highlight of our trip and greeted us so welcomely everywhere we went.
We were delighted with the local cuisine and it’s unique flavours which we will be trying to replicate in our kitchen at home.The accommodation you chose was world class and we would highly recommend especially the Como Uma Punakha, Aman kora Bumthang and the Gantey lodge which was extraordinary.
Bhutan was everything and more than we had hoped for and we look forward to one day returning with some friends maybe in autumn to experience the country’s beauty in another season.
Thank you for sharing your country and culture so beautifully with us.
Very nice tour, well organised and with right enough time at all places. Both guide and driver were helpful, cooperative and knowledgeable. Their skills were also confidence giving and personality also pleasant.
We had an excellent time in Bhutan with our tour guide, Phub. Deven had planned everything beautifully and we were happy with all the arrangements.
Travelling to Bhutan was one of the most memorable experiences of our lives. Myself and my two boys 7 and 12 years old had the best time in Bhutan. The country is absolutely unique, and so are it’s people. Bhutan Aries made everything easy, from planning the trip through to booking the airlines tickets and all accommodations. They are so professional, friendly and knowledgeable and I can’t recommend them highly enough. Thank you for everything.
Bhutan Aries crafted a memorable itinerary for my solo trip to Bhutan. Dev was very easy to communicate with beforehand and made key recommendations for my seven day venture. They made sure all the logistics were taken care of throughout the trip so I could fully immerse myself in enjoying the sites, hikes, and meals each day. Upon arrival, I was greeted by Dev as well as my guide, Karma. I really appreciate Karma’s depth of knowledge and enthusiasm to share about the rich history of the country. They set up wonderful accommodations in Thimpu in particular! Together, we ventured through Thimpu, the Phobjika Valley, and of course the hike to the Tigers Nest among the highlights. While Bhutan is visually stunning, it was time spent with Karma and Dev that made the trip extra special- their humor, easy going, flexible, and genuine nature provided me with an authentic Bhutanese cross-cultural connection. By the end of the trip, we felt like we were old friends and it was hard to say goodbye! If you are looking for a fantastic trip to Bhutan, I highly recommend Bhutan Aries. They are seasoned hosts who will make sure you will have an enjoyable time in the land of the Thunder Dragon.
Want to visit Bhutan then look no further then BHUTAN ARIES. Right from arriving at BHUTAN until departure, it was all taken care of by BHUTAN ARIES. Be it the Hotel, vehicle or excursions they managed it very professionally and Curtsey. Looked after all our needs. Special mention of the Guide TASHI and driver who went off the way to comply with our undue desires.
When I wanted to visit Bhutan last summer I learned that I would have to take a tour in order to visit this beautiful mysterious country. I had travelled India and Nepal extensively and through all my years of visiting new lands, I had never felt the need to have guides or an organised itinerary. So when I landed in Paro for the first time, I knew that I must stay openminded and appreciative. As planned I was met at the airport on time by two lovely gentlemen dressed in traditional Bhutanese dress. The vehicle was ideal and we drove into town with my guide Sangay in the backseat chatting about all we were seeing, while Norbu (the best driver I have ever seen) focused steadily on the road but smiling at our light-hearted conversation. I knew immediately that I had been matched with two of the most wonderful individuals I would ever meet. I am a Law of Attraction enthusiast so I had attracted the best according to my tastes and needs.
We spent 8 days driving around the Bhutan through the misty mountains and the rolling green hills. We stayed one or two days at each location and the hotels were upscale rustic hotels situated in the most splendid landscapes. I constantly felt like I was in a mountain dream. Bhutanese food is wholly satisfying and healthy. The staff at each Inn were polite and helpful.
I did visit Bhutan in the begin of July so this was Monsoon and the summer temperatures were perfect with warm in the day and cool in the evenings. The hot springs. I had longed to visit were not available at this time because their locations are farther into the mountains and Monsoon weather would prevent such visits. I guess I will have to make another visit to try the hot springs which are so famous in this region.
I was very sad to say goodbye to my two guides, Norbu and Sangay who had taken care of me like family. We still chat on Whatsapp or Facebook and for me the country and the tour were all about them and how happy we were driving around in ease and laughter.
I would highly recommend this company as the tour schedule was closely adhered to and the overall service was exemplary. The company also replied promptly to emails sent. I enjoyed the experience of my visit to Bhutan and felt it was a privilege to be here. I would love to come again and will recommend the country and company to my friends and fellow travelers
Unbeatable Bhutan guide and driver
The Bhutan Aries team knows how to treat clients to the best imaginable experience possible. They are sensitive to your needs and desires and will provide you with the trip of a lifetime in their magical country
The highest recommendation for Bhutan Aries
I don't know how I lucked out so much when I chose Bhutan Aries for our tour guides this past summer. I had contacted a few guide companies but Devendra was so responsive and helpful there was no question that they were the right choice. My partner and I spent a week in Bhutan in the summer, and from the moment we were met by Karma and Norbu at the airport in Paro we felt like we were in great hands. Karma is a patient, knowledgeable guide with a good sense of humor and a commitment to wonderful client care. Norbu is the most amazing driver - those mountain roads can be treacherous, but we always felt safe. And Norbu is a knowledgeable guide in his own right. Their English was amazing and they were a lot of fun to spend the week with. We especially enjoyed the Bumdra Trek, but I have to say the countryside was beautiful everywhere we went, which included the Pobjikha Valley. We had the opportunity to spend the night at Choden Homestay too, a farmhouse with amazing food and a traditional hot stone bath, run by a gracious couple, Yeshey and Dechen. I would love to return, and if I did, I would only go through Bhutan Aries. I have used trekking guides a few other places (Peru, Nepal, for example), and Karma, Devendra, and Norbu are the best of all!
For 5 days of stay, our tour was amazing and memorable experience.They made our short vaccation exciting and fun. Comfortable, nice and clean chosen places to stay. Experienced the local house and food. Friendly people and approachable, kudos! to Dev and Karma. We highly recommended them for they will personalized your tour according to the type of activity and places you want to explore. Definitely we will coming back.
Excellent Service. They made our. Trip enjoyable and took care of everything and made sure we have a comfortable stay.3 cheers to them
I've experienced many tours around the globe. Dev and his team beat them all hands down! Everything was above expectation. There were five in our group, so each had a particular interest in mind. They accommodated everyone, and managed changes on the fly. I highly recommend the home stay... an experience you won't want to miss if you relish experiencing the culture of a place and not just ticking off the tourist sites.
From the moment I first contacted Bhutan Aries, Devendra (Dev) was so helpful and responded quickly to my questions. He also made special arrangements for us to photograph a centenarian as well as have an incredible home stay complete with a hot stone bath, archery and traditional Bhutanese music and dance. Dev's kindness and knowledge was evident in the emails he sent me which helped me to feel confident in booking my tour with Bhutan Aires. Dev planned an incredible tour for us. Dev's attention to detail was impressive. Our hotels, guide and driver were outstanding. Our guide Karma was so knowledgeable and gave us detailed information about everything Bhutan, but especially about Buddhism. Our driver Kencho was exceptional in the care he showed for our safety and comfort. We learned so much about this beautiful and very special country. We always felt safe and very cared for. And we hiked to Tiger's Nest (Taktsang Monastery) which can only be described as a very spiritual, life changing experience with these individuals whom we now call friends.
Everyone in our group (there were five of us) felt we were with men of exceptional character. It was a privilege and honor to be in their company and learn of Bhutan through them. Devendra, Karma and Kensho did an excellent job of watching out for us, caring for us and and they have great senses of humor. Their English is excellent too! I can't recommend Bhutan Aries enough and it is because of Bhutan Aires that we had such an incredible trip!
We have traveled all over the world and we found the company, the guide and the driver well exceeded any other company we have traveled with and we would be happy to recommend them to all our friends and families.
Very clean and friendly country
Before my Bhutan trip, I sent 20 travel agents for my trip itinerary and quote. Bhutan Aries responded my email quickly and answered my questions in detail. Among all 20 travel agents, Bhutan Aries provided me the reasonable quote. So based all above, I decided to choose Bhutan Aries. My tour guide and driver showed up on time and they both speak English well. I had a fun trip with both of them. My tour guide hiked to top of Tiger’s Nest with me. He talked about this country history. I asked for something not included in the itinerary, like learning arrow shooting. He was able to arrange that. I requested a restaurant with Mountain View for afternoon tea which is not covered in itinerary either. My tour guide was able to find a beautiful restaurant on the top of mountain. Totally got the extra value from the trip.
Amazing Trip. Right after we touched down in Bhutan we were greeted by Yeshi and Dave. Trip to Bhutan was quite a extraordinary. Our tour operator was very flexible in our untimely changes in our planning. We opted for luxuary hotels. Uma hotel was one of the best we stayed in. Hike to Tigers nest was once in a life time for us as we were quite a old citizens, Yeshi and Dave gave us the determination to reach the monastery and they were such helpful lads. We miss both of them and thank you for making our trip such wonderful one.
Our trip to Bhutan was once in a life time. Such a beautiful country, friendly and helpful people all around. We were greeted by Karma our guide and Shatu our driver. They made us feel very comfortable form the beginning of the trip. Karma and Shatu were very professional in their own fields. Very knowledgeable and humorous made us smile the whole trip. Had a great time with them. Everything was arranged perfectly. We would like to thank you again and will definitely miss Bhutan.
Our time in Bhutan was without doubt one of my greatest ever travel experiences and one we will never forget. Not only is it an amazing destination which is quite unique, and the standard of accommodation and service was excellent specially our guide Kriti Raj and Kencho and cannot wait to return, hopefully one daythe not so far future
We had a fabulous trip. Karma and Kencho were very professional and our trip a memorable and precious experiences. We did the Bumdra trek and the views above were priceless. Just a lovely country. We will plan our second visit to Bhutan soon. Thank you again.
Travelling to Bhutan was one of the most exciting and memorable experiences of my life. Me with my husband and my two friends fell in love with Bhutan.The country is absolutely unique, and so are its people, the whole trip was made easy by Bhutan Aries right from the start. They are so professional, friendly and knowledgeable. A big Thank you goes to Karma and Kencho for making us laugh the whole trip.. Thank you for everything,
My first visit to Bhutan with my son exceeded my expectations in all respects. Stunning scenery, adventurous travel, devout and friendly people, Clean hotels and wonderful guide karma combined to make this not only a truly memorable holiday but a precious life experience.
I just wanted to thank you again for our amazing time in Bhutan. The whole trip, from planning to execution was done so professionally. Karma and Kencho were superb, I don’t think I could have found a better guide and driver, so much of our trip can be attributable to them being so attentive.
Memorable Bhutan trip with the best guides
Dev and Karma made my Bhutan trip so memorable. Great service, very knowledgeable, super friendly and a lot of fun. Especially since I was a solo traveler, they really went above and beyond to make sure I was safe and had a good time. Everything was well planned and they were also very flexible and accommodating. Will recommend them to all my friends!
My Bhutan trip was made amazing by my friends Karma and kencho I stayed in Bhutan for 7 days and visited almost all the great places in Bhutan. Tiger’s nest hike was a worth hiking up. It blew my mind away once I reached the top with the magnificent view of the monastery. My trip was well planned and din’t have to go through any hitch till the last day. Will definitely visit Bhutan again. Missing Bhutan and my friends
We visited Bhutan on our Christmas holidays and it was a truly a amazing trip. Once we reached we were greeted by our tour guides Karma and Dave. Everything was organized in a professional manner and they made our Bhutan trip a very memorable one, we find Bhutan a beautiful clean country and we cannot wait to revisit. Big thanks to Karma and Dave for making our trip such a amazing one.
It was my 2nd visit in Bhutan and it was a bit like coming home.
We had 10 outstanding days, visited Thimphu, Punakha, Phobijka and Paro.
Karma and Devendra were very flexible in planning and changing some topics. We had a lot of fun also.
I never had such a Christmas party like I had in that farmhouse.
Tigers nest was of course again very exciting.
I will come back soon !
