    Our guide, Tandin was exceptional. He brought the culture of Bhutan alive! always able to explain in faultless English. Our tour was thoughtfully planned and organized, yet remained flexible. We can highly recommend Boonserm. From superb local restaurants to archery lessons and even a birthday cake, they made our trip memorable and we would have no hesitation in using them again.

    Pre trip, our communication with Boonserm was clear, professional and prompt. It took us a while to finalize our plans and the agency was patient, helpful and accommodating throughout. Once we arrived in Bhutan, our already high expectations were exceeded. We could not have asked for a better guide and driver for our 11 day tour as we were always well taken care of and at ease. We are a mother-daughter travel team with a 41 year age difference. Both of us has a magnificent experience of Bhutan. Thanks to Boonserm Tours & Travels. from Asheville, NC, USA
