Amazing service. Responded very fast and took very good care of everything. An awesome trip which we will recommend to friends

-Sebastian and Stefanie Kirchner

My wife and I recently visited Bhutan for an eight day cultural tour followed by a six day trek. I don’t ordinarily write reviews, but our experience with Rinphun Bhutan Tours was deeply gratifying and inspiring. Both of us felt consistently attended to in a variety of ways, and our needs were always considered. I had not done much research about Rinphun Bhutan Tours, but a good friend gave the company a glowing recommendation and he suggested that we request Tashi Tobgay as our guide. Tobgay is an expert in local history and was always willing to engage in conversation about his beloved country and culture. We never felt overwhelmed by the amount of information or cultural stories that were shared with us. Bhutan was an amazing place to visit and we will always feel grateful to Tobgay and the staff at Rinphun Bhutan Tours for their generosity of spirit and kindness. I highly, highly recommend this company and these dedicated people for your journey to Bhutan.
