Here are what our guests say about their Bhutan experience

Was planning a trip to Bhutan and came across an ad in FB by Druk Asia. Emailed them and the staff Ugyen Dema responded almost immediately. She provided all the essential info i was looking for and the booking of air tix and tour were done in an instance. That was how hassel-free the whole process is. Upon arrival at Paro Airport and clearing immigration, I was warmly greeted by my guide - Chencho lham and driver - Chimi. Little did I know that for the next 7 days, i am going to experience an exemplary service by both of them. Being a solo traveler and first time in Bhutan, Chencho first checked for my interests and dietry preference. One thing I love about Drukasia/Soultrips is how flexible the tour can be.

We had an exceptional experience with Druk Asia / Soul Trips for our honeymoon trip to Bhutan. The attention to detail from our liaison Ugyen Dema with the tour arrangements was impressive, especially regarding requests to change up our Bhutan itinerary and dietary requirements. The accommodations in Bhutan organised were also comfortable and offered stunning views of the surrounding landscapes while the hospitality at each hotel was impeccable, and the staff went out of their way to make our stay special. Our superstar tour guide, Tshering Dohji, played an indispensable role in making our trip so memorable.
