We did the Glimpse of Bhutan 5 night 6 days trip in Bhutan. Our guide and driver were amazing! They were professional, entertaining and knowledgeable too. We had a short on time for trip therefore we chose to do the 5 night 6 days tour to Bhutan. This trip covered all the main sightseeing place such as Tashichho Dzong, Tiger's Nest Monastry, Dochu-La pass, Punaha Dzong, the palace of Great Happiness and lots of beautiful scenery, which is what drew us to Bhutan initially. The hotels and food on this tour were wonderful too, definitely exceeded my expectations. Our Guide coordinated perfectly and never had one fault due to miscommunication. Thanks Adventure Himalayan Travels and Treks for providing us with good guide and driver. Highly recommended, we'll be back for our next trip with Adventure Himalayan Travels and Treks
