    The four of us went on a 10 days Bhutan trip. We had a western & central Bhutan visit. Ten-day visit was not enough for us to explore this mysterious country fully. Bhutan was so beautiful beyond our expectations! It is not recommended that you take part in the journey for less than five days. Because Bhutan has a lot of ghats. It might take many hours on the way to the scenic spots every day. It’s better to sightsee for a few more days if you want to have a good relax. Our guide and driver at the airport were very reliable and punctual. The tour vehicle was also comfortable. The accommodation was better than expected, the food tasted pretty good! It was quite cost-effective! Next time, I will be back and surely travel with Agate Travel again. In short, Bhutan was worth seeing again! See you Bhutan!...More

    Our guide was enthusiastic and proficient in the information about local history and culture. Don’t miss the National Memorial Chorten to see the golden Buddha Dordenma Statue in Thimphu.

    Guide service: great local knowledge and experience. Always pick us up on time.
    Itinerary: the Agate provided us with excellent planning and information and the journey was beyond my expectation.
    Specific comment: awesome Bhutan tour for 5 days of Thimphu - Paro all the way, I will come back for sure!

    Nowadays tourism has basically become semi-self-help. We can participate in the arrangement of the trip by ourselves. We consulted with a travel consultant about the attractions and routes that we prefer. On this 8 days Bhutan Trekking tour, we trusted our responsible guides arranged by Agate. They organized our itinerary properly. The tour was quite exceptional! Because this perfect trip had our own participation, we felt very proud and satisfied. Thank all the staff of Agate Travel for offering the excellent service!

    Overall, we had an awesome experience on this Bhutan tour! We appreciated magnificent Buddhist architecture and spent a quiet and leisurely time!
  • Kameron Juray from ColombiaPosted on August 02, 2020
    The kingdom of Bhutan was an amazing place to contemplate and experience while traveling!
    We were home now but our hearts were still in Bhutan. We always felt that the journey was not over. We had a close view of the magnificent snow mountains on the plane. We also visited the natural preserve and saw the national animal of Bhutan - Takin.
    If time is available, we hope more time spent in watching animals!

    There were many interesting activities on this 10 days Bhutan trip. We visited Thirteen Traditional Arts and Crafts School and Paper Making Factory.
    Bhutan is also famous for its Buddhist temples. Taktshang situated on a cliff is the most famous and sacred temple in Bhutan.
    Highly recommended!!

    After comparing many travel agencies, I finally chose Agate Travel to arrange an exciting 10-day Bhutan honeymoon tour for us. It really didn’t disappoint us. We are grateful for your amazing service and perfect itinerary! Both my husband and I will be more than willing to introduce your company to our friends.

    During this 10-day Bhutan holiday, we not only visited famous Buddhist shrines in Asia, but also witnessed the spectacular scenery of the Himalayas and had close contact with the simple Bhutanese people. Bhutan was a country with relatively high happiness. The Bhutanese cherish the animals, the food and all the things in the life. And they are content with what they get! It was nice that this tour was half self-guided and there was no hurry.

    PS: Bhutan’s roads were bad. But our tour cars were in good condition and the drivers were quite skilled.

    I want to show my compliments to the travel consultant. Before I set out for Bhutan, Cindy gave me very professional advice and did her best to tailor my Bhutan tour. We had a good talk!
