Rinchen, my guide, has excellent spoken English and knowledgeable (not just fact and figures). As for my driver, he is always on time and we felt safe on the road.
The hotel in Punakha was great, including the buffet dinner. The transport is good but I felt the vehicle used for sightseeing should not have black-out windows.
On the tour, Rinchen made good suggestions on the itinerary and I appreciated the adjustments both in the planning stage and on the road.

My guide is awesome, I really appreciated his presence. My driver is calm and cool, and I am highly impressed by his driving skills. For my accommodation, I felt much pampered. Hotel Olathang was just great. The trekking itinerary was great too. Fast email responses. Everyone called me “Sir”, which was quite surprising to me. I felt so perfectly pampered. I like Bhutan and its inhabitants. Unfortunately, I could not spend the last sightseeing with my guide. I would like to visit Bhutan again. But there are so many interesting places around the world. Let’s see how.
Mr Michael, Germany
It was an excellent trip, and I really enjoyed my trip with my female guide!
Ms Jearlene, Singapore
Mr Sherab is probably the only guide in Bhutan who is able to make our trip so wonderful. Funny, resourceful, witty and engaging, not forgetting his honesty and helpfulness. I truly believe that no other tour guide can make my trip to Bhutan this wonderful.
Mr Sherab is more than a guide to us. We have also earned a friend in our short 7 days trip. We have followed a number of tour company before to different country, but have never met a guide that is able to click with us on a personal level. Our trekking crew, Sangay & the cook, were very helpful and kind. They made amazing food that is as good as or better than 5 stars hotel. They were very thoughtful and provided us with hot water packs to warm ourselves for the night.
The itinerary was well-planned and flexible at a very comfortable pace. We learnt a lot of history on Buddhism and about Bhutan. The Brumdra trek was on of a kind, and I will be back for more.
Sangay is an extremely skilful and safe driver. He ensured the car is clear for our comfort and he often wipes the windows very often so that we are able to take good photos of our trip.
Mr Sherab took extra precaution towards my mom and aunt and I am truly grateful towards him. I hope that I am able to return to Bhutan again, not just for the beauty but to experience the great hospitality extended to us by Mr Sherab and Sangay.
Ms Jolene & family, Singapore
I am 150% satisfied with Sherab’s service and passion on Bhutanese culture and history. Everything is informative and educational. He also managed to answer all my questions.
The driver has great driving skills and highly experienced on roads with difficult conditions. He is patient, even when traffic jam occurs. Once, Sherab took me out for a walk and then we met up the driver after he got out from the traffic.
Sherab is the best tour guide I’ve ever had. He is not just knowledgeable, but also funny, patient and polite. He always ask me first for any change in the itinerary. On top of that, he had added lots of other activities and sightseeing points when the time allowed. I have no doubt for his professionalism and his company had made my trip more joyful. I also want to thank the driver as he is professional and full of courtesy. I would definitely book my next trip with Legendary Bhutan.
Mr Eddie, Taiwan
The guide has good command of English and very knowledgeable. The itinerary is well planned one, not too rush. Ample time for rest and no rush at temples and fortress.
I will recommend this tour operator to other people. Thank you for this memorable trip.
Mr Adrian, Singapore
We originally contacted 3 different companies. Only Sherab was completely responsive and flexible. He went all his way out to make sure we experienced everything we hoped for.
Not only that, Sherab is a wonderful guide to us – very knowledgeable in many areas and constantly watching out to make sure we had the best possible experience. He has great communication skills and good humour.
We were also very pleased with Phurba as he is a skilful driver and always calm even in difficult driving situations. He is also conscientious and polite.
Most of the accommodation were excellent. If there were any problems, we talked to Sherab and he would dealt with the hotel managers.
Ms Jennifer, United States of America
Overall, I was happy with the tour and I think we saw what we come to Bhutan to see. The itinerary was very comprehensive. It was unfortunate that the road was under construction which caused the travel time to be very long.
The guide is very knowledgeable and took care of us. I sometimes had trouble understanding him but he has good English comprehension.
As for the driver, he is a very good driver. I felt safe riding with him. The car was fine but the travelling on the highway was very difficult and exhausting.
Generally, the hotel accommodation provided were very good except for the hotel in Bumthang.
Lastly, thank you for the birthday cake!
Ms Linda, United States of America
I am in New Delhi and tomorrow I will go back to Italy.
I would like really to say a big thanks to my guide and my driver during my trip in Bhutan. Everything was fine. The guide explained me many things and was well prepared and looked after me. The driver always drove slowly and carefully and he was so nice person.
I felt relaxing atmosphere with them and very friendly. They have been really good companions for travelling.
Big thanks to them, to you and your agency. In Italy, I will advertising your country and of course your travel agency. If one day, I might come back again to Bhutan, I will contact you again.
Thanks again to you and please say again a big thanks and hello to my guide and driver.
Mr Peitro, Italy
My guide, Sherab, was fantastic throughout my trip. He is very knowledgeable and shared a lot of interesting information about Bhutan. My driver was unbreakable, even after many hours of driving in bad roads. Very comfortable with his driving skills and care for me.
The accommodation is good throughout the trip. As per expectation, I opted for one night stay at farm house which was a very nice experience.
After my flight was cancelled, Sherab proposed to visit another valley and always took me to more places than was originally planned. He was fantastic in being flexible about the itinerary.
Thank you so much because I have a great time in Bhutan!
Ms Violetta, Lithuania
Nima, our guide, was very attentive and always tried to show us the best of Bhutan. Even when feeling a bit sick, Nima even prepared soup to get us through it.
With Phuba as our driver, we felt very safe. We could not have a better and attentive driver. Even the car was cleaned every day.
For accommodation, we experienced different types of accommodation. Overall, all was as expected or better. The itinerary was just excellent too, an overview of culture, life and nature.
A real recommendation to travel with Legendary Bhutan. We also appreciated the preparation work of Mr. Sherab and his follow-up during our trip. This personal service is very important for a group of 2!
Ms Caroline, Belgium
Chimi is a knowledge, kind, caring and professional tour guide. She knows what I like and tried her very best to bring me to interesting places that I will like.
Phuba, is a professional, skilfully, careful and safe driver. I feel very safe and reliable when sitting in the car.
I cannot believe the best hotel to me was Soednam Zingkha Heritage Lodge in Haa. Beautiful renovated traditional building with wonderful owners and staff. Excellent Wifi in lobby, dinner hall and even in the room. Overall, all the hotels are good.
I am satisfied and feel blessed to choose Legendary Bhutan Tours & Treks from the start of the email until the end of the journey. I will introduce Bhutan and this travel agency to my friends in Hong Kong.
Ms Nancy, Hong Kong
I was very happy with the programme for the 4 days, especially with Sherab (the guide). Both the hotels (Hotel Lobesa and Gangtey Palace) were very good and excellent. I would recommend Legendary Bhutan to anyone.
Ms Christina, Switzerland
Our guide was punctual, knowledgeable and speaks excellent English. He met every requests we made.
Our driver was very careful over hazardous roads and made us felt safe. He kept the vehicle very clean and comfortable.
Expect for Uma Punakha, the accommodations were average. Uma Punakha was excellent. We also enjoyed the farmhouse stay in Phobjikha.
We would love to visit Bhutan again and would use Legendary Bhutan as well as recommend.
Mr Marvin, United States
Our guide, Dorji, was very knowledgeable, relaxed and friendly. He did a great job in ensuring we saw the best places in Bhutan as we lost one day due to the cancellation of our flight in Kathmandu.
Tsahi was a great driver. Transport provided was excellent. The best we had in 3 locations.
Gangtey Palace was an excellent hotel. Good location and room was awesome. Thank you for bringing us to see the cultural show which we enjoyed.
Mr Jason, Australia
There is no better guide than Mr Dorji. He was fantastic. All of your guests will instantly be enhanced by him. He modified our itinerary and it was perfect after the changes.
Mr Phurba was a great driver, especially the road from Punakha to Thimphu. He is excellent and a great asset to have.
The accommodation in Thimphu and Punakha were excellent. The room in Bumthang was poor until Mr Dorji helped us to change to one with electric heater.
We loved Mr Dorji and Mr Phurba and they made our trip in Bhutan a dream vacation. Their passion for their country really adds to the trip. I only wish I had bought a tape recorder to collect all of the many stories shared.
Ms Terry, United States
We are very happy with the treatment we received from Jatsho and Phurba. They were both very friendly and professional.
Regarding the travel itself, it was exactly as according to your proposal and as our need. We would recommend your agency if ask.
Last but not least, you are living in a wonderful country with beautiful landscape and incredibly nice people.
Please take care of it.
Mr Xavier, Germany
Thank you for organising our trip to Bhutan. We had a fantastic time and were very happy with the service your company provided.
We initially contacted many companies. Most of the others either didn't reply or ignored what we wrote in our emails. Thank you in particular for suggesting changing our dates so that we could see the Paro Tshechu. This was one of the highlights of our trip.
In particular we were very impressed with our guide (Kinley) and driver (unfortunately we've forgotten his name). We have visited many countries and they are the best guide and driver we have ever had. They did everything they could to make sure we had a good holiday and Kinley provided us with exactly the right amount of information about the places we visited.
We would be happy to recommend Legendary Bhutan to other travellers and would also highly recommend our guide and driver.
Anne & Simon, United Kingdom
Both Angie and myself joined the tour on 22 Dec 2013 to 1 Jan 2014, touring the western and central parts of Bhutan.
Our guide - Sherab is a responsible person, despite we always complaint about the food, he tried his best to satisfied us by bringing us to eat Singapore food and also giving the option for us to order what we like to eat.
When I got sick on the 3rd day of the tour, he also took the initiative to ask the hotel to prepare porridge for me.
Since I have difficulty to hike the Tiger's Nest, Sherab even had the driver - Yeshi to accompany and assist us during the whole hiking journey. Without both Sherab & Yeshi, I will never make it to Tiger's Nest!
We are also very lucky to have a responsible driver, our pilot-in-control. We would like to convey our appreciation to Yeshi, always greeting with a great smile and careful with driving especially on the long journey to Bumthang.
We are back home and had great memories of Bhutan (minus off the food), it has been great experience in visiting Bhutan.
We have no hesitation to recommend Legendary Bhutan Tours to friends and families.
Joanne and Angie, Singapore
Had a wonderful time in Bhutan and a great experience with this tour agency. Will definitely recommend Legendary Bhutan, Jatso and Kihlay to our friends!
Jatso was a fantastic guide – extremely knowledgeable about Bhutan, willing to answer a thousand questions from us, and made sure we had a great time. He re-arranged the itinerary several times at our last minute request so that we got to see everything we wanted.
Kinlay was very kind and courteous, and always looking after our comfort. He was a very skilful driver especially on the winding mountain roads.
Only wish for better heating facilities in Phobjikha Valley’s accommodation, but otherwise very comfortable. We loved Gangtey Palace especially!
Mr Joe, United States
My first trip to Bhutan was in 2011 and my first impression about Bhutan was incredibly exciting and wonderful. My best guided and relaxed tour in my life is in Bhutan.
For my second trip to Bhutan in 2012, I booked my tour directly with Legendary Bhutan Tours & Treks. They are professional from planning to my actual tour. I received excellent services from my guide and driver. My guide attended to my needs and made sure I have an enjoyable time.
Hotel accommodation provided was reasonably good. My itinerary was rather flexible since I am travelling alone. I have no problems recommending Legendary Bhutan Tours & Treks to anyone.
Ms Lam, Singapore
I visited Bhutan for the first time in March 2011 and it was the most wonderful trip I ever had! The views of mountains and rivers were breathtaking and the Dzongs were magnificent.
More importantly, the warmth of Bhutanese made me feel welcomed. One of them is Sherub, my tour leader. Sherub is one of the most experienced tour leaders in Bhutan. He took care of me from the time I stepped out of Paro Airport to the time I depart Bhutan. He was always available for me and tirelessly shared with me his knowledge of the history and culture of Bhutan.
Sherub has a very good understanding of Buddhism and often provided me with in depth knowledge of monasteries we visited. He was never late and always ensured that my meals were punctual and delicious! Bhutan in itself is a wonderful experience and Sherub definitely added luster to my visit. In my next trip to Bhutan, I will definitely request for Sherub to be my tour leader!
