Chris & John (Australia):

We went to Bhutan with some trepidation, not knowing quite what to expect in terms of organisation of the tour, food, accommodation etc, but from the moment we arrived at the airport, when Namgay and his wonderful team were there to greet us, we soon realised that he was well organised and so friendly that we would be in good hands. Namgay made sure that the hotels were all very comfortable and that meals were always ready for us when we were travelling (including superb morning teas on the road!), and he always made sure that each member of the tour was happy. Everything ran like clockwork and the drivers and guides were also so very kind and helpful. As our tour was primarily a photography tour, Illuminating Tours planned the itinerary to maximise every opportunity to capture good photos and give us wonderful Bhutan experiences, and he and his team went out of their way to help us in every possible way.

We would not hesitate to strongly recommend Illuminating Tours to anyone planning to visit Bhutan – many Western tour operators could learn a lot from them!
