      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!

          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.

              • Jesus Hollerback from the United KingdomPosted on June 23, 2020
                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!

                    We traveled to Bhutan in January. Except for the beautiful snow-white mountains (must-see), we experienced a colorful culture in Bhutan. We learnt that its culture was deeply influenced by the traditional culture of Tibet. But indeed, Bhutan’s culture also has unique charms. This Bhutan tour was an unforgettable experience to explore the magic place!!

                      We actually went from Nepal to Bhutan. So the contrast between the two countries was very striking! Nepal was noisy, while Bhutan was quiet.

                      Bhutan was relatively underdeveloped in terms of infrastructure, but we could still feel that Bhutanese people lived a very comfortable life. We also immensely enjoyed the quiet & peace on the Bhutan tour!
