Since my first contact with Deepak, everything was perfect! Excellent program offered, he arranged the farm house experience for us, easy way for payment! Hotels and transportation was much more than expected :)
Nim and Bim made our days in Bhutan! We had a lot of fun with them! Nim knows so much about the history of the country, budism, traditions.... She was never tired of So many questions! Thanks for all!!

Also thanks for kinley, our first guide! I will never forget the life wheel explanation that she gave us!

I decided to engage Raven Tours after reading so many positive reviews about them and I would say they didn't disappoint! Deepak (CEO) and his team were very responsive and ticketing matters were in good hands. My itinerary and accommodation were also pretty flexible as I was able to change some to my preference. Tashi (guide) and Sangay (driver) were very friendly and caring so I felt very comfortable with them throughout the trip. The complimentary hot stone bath arranged was to die for and it was such a pleasant experience to visit the locals in their house where we had the home-cooked dinner together. Visited in Dec which is the low season so the trip was peaceful with minimal tourist crowd. Bhutan is such a beautiful country with amazing landscape views and with architecture so rich with their religious culture. I'm glad to have planned this trip with Raven Tours and will definitely recommend them to other travellers!

I highly recommend Raven Tours. I got in touch with Deepak, the CEO of the company, who customised my tour as I wanted to do 9 day tour. It was a smooth process to organise the tour. We had dinner in one of the traditional restaurants- food was great, but too much, I couldn’t finish it. He was a gracious and entertaining host.
My tour guide was Kinley and my driver was Singye. Both of them are warm, friendly and very experienced/knowledgeable. I did a combination of culture and hiking which I would highly recommend. I did a farm visit which was fantastic - a lot of fun and great meal.
I also absolutely enjoyed having meals in small local cafes. I am happy that Kinley exposed me to some authentic local experience.
I got a bit of altitude sickness at the tail end of my trip and both Kinley & Singye were mindful of it. Kinley would check up at the night to see if I was ok.
I would recommend Bhutan-it is a unique country, there is no Starbucks, MacDonalds, etc. You will never come off feeling like it’s just another city/country.

Me and my wife had a blast in Bhutan. Our tour guide Tenpa and driver Penju are amazing. Their knowledge is impeccable and they took good care of us. Our flight tickets, e-permits, accommodations, transportation were all taken care of by the Raven tours and treks. We didn’t had to deal with the hassle of researching and booking the tickets at every place. We just had to enjoy. That’s pretty much what everyone wants without dealing with all the trivial stuff. We can’t stress enough how much we enjoyed our trip to Bhutan and it wouldn’t have happened with all the proper planning done and executed by the Raven tours and treks.

Deepak, ceo of the company was in constant contact with me to make sure everything was going well as planned. I can’t thank him enough for his incredible service and making our Bhutan experience phenomenal.

I highly recommend anyone who is planning to go to Bhutan to go with Raven tours and treks.

Cheers.

There is no place in the world like Bhutan. The peaceful majesty of the deeply Buddhist country bring you back to life, while the people will inspire you with their kindness and warmth. In fact, I like Bhutan so much that I've visited the country twice in the past three years, taking both trips with Raven Tours.

I can't imagine there's a better tour company in the country! Deepak and his team have tremendous knowledge of the country's history, culture, religion and politics, all of which adds to the depth and meaning of experiencing Bhutan. They made sure to learn about what we wanted to experience in Bhutan and incorporated those things into the tours. Whether you want to experience a traditional herbal bath, hike to the breathtaking Tiger's Nest, taste authentic Bhutanese food, or watch an archery match - they do their best to accommodate your interests and make your experience truly unique.

A huge thank you to Tashi (our guide) and Namgay (our driver) who made my family's last trip to Bhutan an experience of a lifetime. I plan to come back for a third visit!

We organized the tip with raven and we were advised from start to end. Our guide "Pema Tshering" and our drive "Mewang Gyeltshen" were really helpful. Pema was insightful and he has a thorough knowledge of Bhutan's history and its culture. He explained to us patiently replying to all our queries and doubts. The beauty of the country and the hospitality of our guide and driver made our trip a fantastic experience.
Depak was helpful in planning our itinerary however as he said we kept our itinerary free and easy. There were no hiccups during our travel.

My wife and my just completed (December 2019) trip to Bhutan has been a bucket list trip for us for some time. Raven Tours made it happen in a way that far surpassed our expectations in every way. Pima our guide proved to be the most insightful, knowledgeable, and delightful person to introduce us to this wonderful country. No question we asked was too dumb and his command of information about his country was superior. He took perfect care of us and proved to be a flexible, thoughtful and wonderful representative of this amazing country. Our driver, Ashit, was also a true professional and took such amazing care to keep us safe and comfortable on the winding mountainous roads of Bhutan. At all times we felt he was like a protective parent with his kids. The scenery was far beyond what we imagined, mountains, rivers, temples, yaks and black-necked cranes. The food was so wonderful (even with a brief spell of “Bhutan belly”). Deepak, the owner of Raven Tours, met with us for lunch soon after our arrival and spent a great deal of time discussing our trip and his own approach to “bespoke” travel with Raven. He is a very genuine person, interested in what brought us to Bhutan, and how we are perceiving his country. It was clear to us that, like Pima and Ashit, we were truly guests in their country who they wanted to have a wonderful trip - not just tourists there to spend money. Gross National Happiness is a real thing in Bhutan! Go. See the Bhutanese Himalayas, the black-necked cranes, Tiger’s Nest (of course), and ask about the “Divine Madman.” On a practical note: take good sunglasses, good walking shoes (that come off and on easily for temple visits), layers of clothing for all temps, Pepto-Bismo tablets, something for winding car trips, patience for changes in Druk Air’s flight schedules (and a window seat on the flight into Paro to see the Himalayas), and an open mind. You’ll love it - and Raven Tours.

It was our first time in Bhutan and I already can’t wait to go back. We planned out a wonderful tour to see Bhutan and the Punakha Drubchen and Tshechu Festival. The tour was able to work around our interests.

Our tour guide was Mohan, who was wonderfully hilarious and great company. He was constantly telling us interesting information about the country as well as trying to figure out wonderful activities. We went as a group of 4, but I sprained my ankle right before we got to Bhutan. They were very helpful in making adjustments so that I could heal a bit before taking on Tiger’s Nest. I hope you get to experience Bhim the driver as well. He made us feel safe while cracking jobs. Laughs all around.

I’ll be coming back to Bhutan again and I would definitely request Mohan and Bhim as my guides. They were the best!!

Our friends Dean and Sasha invited my wife and I to this trip and having known them for a while and how they travel we didn't hesitate in saying yes. After thorough research, Dean found Raven tours and decided to reach out Deepak. When we decided to join the trip and he shared with me all the communications between him and Deepak I felt at ease. Deepak is extremely responsive and professional, all of our needs were taken care immediately and everything was properly communicated.

When we arrived in Bhutan our guide Sonam Chogyal and driver, Bhim, were waiting for us, and both were extremely friendly and professional. They made our trip extremely pleasant from the beginning and throughout the whole trip.

One of our friends is pregnant and Sonam and Bhim did everything they could so she could be as comfortable as possible. Not only that, Sonam's knowledge about Bhutan's history, culture and religion should be the benchmark of what one should expect when contracting a tour guide.

After this trip, my wife and I are 100% sure we will be going back to Bhutan to get to know the rest of the country and for sure we will be reaching out to Raven Tours to make this happen.

Deepak, Sonam and Bhim, I can't thank you enough for those wonderful 7 days in Bhutan and I truly hope to see everyone back again soon.

Wonderful trip from initial pick-up to final drop-off. Our guide Nawang and driver Hem were both excellent, and we couldn't have asked for more: Nawang was friendly and informative and very accommodating on our hikes, Hem did an excellent job keeping us safe on the very windy mountain roads, and they were both helpful, prompt. and professional. The itinerary was nicely planned but also flexible enough to accommodate unexpected circumstances (like the truck in front of us whose pole got stuck in the side of a hill). We went for a week in October; the whole trip was lovely, but our favorite parts of the trip were Punakha and of course the Tiger's Nest monastery.
