We had a private tour for 4 days due to limited time with the tour guide Sonam, who has deep knowledge of the culture and the very safe driver Kinley. They made our Bhutan experience to lifetime memory.

Thank you very much for that great experience we had with Bhutan Wonderland – a big recommendation!

Amazing Tour

Bhutan is an amazing country and we were fortunate to have Druk and Tandin to show us around. They are both very friendly and helpful and knowledgeable. I especially appreciated the way they took care of my wife when she felt car sick on the way to Punaka. Thanks again for everything!


Francis – August 18, 2019 Bhutan Itinerary 4 Days 2

Bhutan becomes my dream destination for a long time and I am able to visit last February. It was a wonderful country, people were very nice and scenery was spectacular. We spend 5 nights doing Explore Bhutan tour including Paro and Thimphu due to limited timeframe. The major highlights of our trip were hike to Taktsang Monastery, a beautiful Punakha Dzong and Dochula Pass. The guide and drivers was very informative, helpful and nice people. The accommodation they provided was out of our expectation specially staying at The Spirit Sanctuary was an unforgettable experience. We highly recommended you to explore Bhutan with Bhutan Wonderland and we are coming back soon for longer time.
