From the moment we starting emailing Namgay we knew we wanted to travel with Bhutan Majestic. Namgay explained everything clearly as well as advising what he thought would be the best trip for us and he was very open to feedback and changes. . On arrival we were met by our driver and guide who did a fantastic job looking after us over the next 7 days and ensuring we made to most of Bhutan. Their knowledge and enthusiasm for the country was wonderful. We are already thinking about another visit in the future and im sure it will be with Bhutan Majestic.

I went on a solo trip with Bhutan Majestic Travel (BMT) late December, early January. You read a lot about how to find the best tour operator, I emailed three tour operators (after selecting them through my research) and judged them on their response. Namgay, the founder and Managing Director of BMT, was a delight to work with. I am a detailed planner and had my travel itinerary options ready and wanted feedback. While all others came back with pre-packaged itinerary responses, very detailed plans, only Namgay responded and provided honest feedback on my options and how he would structure the customized trip based on his vast experience. He did not provide a pre-packaged detailed itinerary, only the high-level plan and his recommendations. I loved it and we quickly aligned on what the best customized high-level itinerary for me was based on what I wanted to see and the days I had. Also, while I subsequently wanted to work out the details, Namgay assured me that the guide will know the sights to visit at each location, and indeed the guide knew and ticked off everything I wanted… so there’s no need to have a detailed itinerary worked out with BMT, except for your own benefit… just make sure to speak with your guide the day before on what you had on your list and he/she will make sure that you’ll visit it. I did, however, changed some hotels based on my research and that was no issue, as long as it is done before your Visa is issued. Now – my guide and driver – Loday and Dawa. They made my trip memorable and became best friends at the end of the trip. Loday is one of the best guides, what makes him the best is that he is very friendly and social, and therefore knows many people throughout the country which made this trip unique by interacting with ordinary local people whenever we got a chance. Meeting his dad at Tiger’s Nest Cafeteria, where he’s the manager. Meeting a friend for his book launch in Thimpu, getting invited to dinner and drinks, and where I also met the former Deputy Chairperson of the National Council and a well-known Bhutanese actor. Loday also maintains great relationships with all the folks at the accommodations and meal places… because of my appetite to try the local food, they always made sure I got some extra from the kitchen during lunch and dinners. Dawa is a great and funny driver, adjusted his driving to my needs, and got us safely back to Paro from Bhumtang on a long-day road trip when we saw the first snow fall of the year… in fact it snowed a couple nights prior us needing to pass through the Pele La and Dochula Passes… we were all worried with the snow if we will make it (well, Loday wasn’t worried)… Dawa got us safely over the pass with the snowy road. As you can see from my lengthy review, I truly enjoyed my trip with Bhutan Majestic Travel, Loday and Dawa. Namgay is very seasoned and experienced in the Bhutan Tourism industry, and also down to earth. His company is the best choice you can make. Once you select them, you don’t need to worry anymore.

Dear Epic Erik, (Epic goes well with another "E") Happy & Healthy Greetings from Cold but Happy Bhutan to you and your Family in two different Continents and wishing them Good Wishes. Thank you so much for spending time to write us a review on this awesome platform which not just grade our services to fellow guests who had already visited Bhutan but most importantly for those Guests who are in Planning stage and deciding to choose the better Tour Company in Bhutan relating to their services and recommendations. I strongly feel the upcoming guests deserves much informations and details about their trip and their local ground handler in advance because everything happens so fast and becomes like dream so Trust and Confidence is a factor here. As i mentioned to you over our long correspondence that I dont believe in providing strict pre set itinerary because Bhutan is travelers Paradise and I dont wanna let you see only the pre set itinerary sights and no other BUT do a small casual meeting between your guide and driver towns every end of the day about tomorrow's program and try select or visit all of them if time permits, one man's best place wouldn't be your cup of tea, so hearing from Guide and Driver and analyzing it is very important and I m very happy that you agreed with my plan and at the end you enjoyed your holiday and we receives your satisfaction, Happy Ending for both the Parties, Kadrinchey La. Even for us at National Level we dont get such rare opportunity to attend big event like Book Launching followed by meeting Bhutan's Far Sighted Political Leader and other influential folks from different background, you are truly lucky traveler.

This is our first time to Bhutan and it was a very headache situation as there are tons of local travel agencies to select from. By randomly pick and email, Bhutan Majestic Travel is the fastest in responding. Not only the first inquiry email, but subsequent clarification emails are also promptly which gives us a good impression of this company. Hence, we have decided to engage Bhutan Majestic Travel for our Bhutan tour. Thanks to Namgay, Loday and Tenzin for making this trip so memorable. Too many fantastic memories to mention in the review and the scenery of Bhutan is beyond words to describe. Meals and accommodation are wonderful. We feel so blessed to choose Bhutan Majestic Travel for all these arrangements. Due to the slippery road, we are unable to get to Chelela Pass and Haa, this is the small regret of the trip. But this will be the reason for going back to Bhutan and there are many more great places to explore as well.

They also said they enjoyed trying out Traditional Bhutanese Costumes, Gho & Kira that we provided as complimentary because almost all of our guests wishes to try taking photos in Bhutanese National Dress and take back good memories in long run, we are truly happy and enjoyed watching the video and still photos from your trip. Thank you so much for your compliment on our services and promptness on our response to your email, well we truly respect time and we understand you guys coming from high end metropolitan cities where time is always a factor and lacks with everyone and as much or as far as possible, we try to respond to all emails in 1 Hour time frame and had been our business motto for last 16 years in business.

My trip to Bhutan in December was an absolutely incredible one thanks to Bhutan Majestic Travel. I contacted the company about 10 days prior to my trip and founder and managing director Namgay swiftly replied and worked with me to efficiently craft a customized trip. Once in country I was greeted by guide Tendin Chophel and driver Tashi Dorji. In the past I have strongly preferred independent travel to any type of guided tour so I was slightly apprehensive about how the trip would go. Throughout my six-day trip Tendin and Tashi went above and beyond to make sure that it was an enjoyable one. They were both incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating and by the end of the six days we were close friends--we even capped off the trip with a pickup basketball game. I have never written a TripAdvisor review but I felt compelled to do so due to Tendin and Tashi's high level of service and professionalism. Additionally, all accommodation arranged by Bhutan Majestic Travel was fantastic--I especially enjoyed my night in a homestay in Punakha as well as the opening two nights at The Pema, a spectacular hotel in Thimpu. If you are considering a trip to Bhutan I would highly recommend Bhutan Majestic Travel as your tour operator--you will not be disappointed!
