“It’s always exciting planning a holiday but the decision to visit somewhere ‘off the beaten track’, like Bhutan, meant we needed a little extra help in preparation. Illuminating Tours went above and beyond in helping us with our pre-departure preparation right down to providing useful travel tips on what to pack and answering all of the many questions we had.
Armed with our advice from Illuminating Tours we set off on our adventure. Dhendup and Subba, our guide and driver, were extremely knowledgeable and flexible: they even went as far as amending the itinerary on the go based on what we were enjoying and what we wanted to see more of. Most importantly, these guys were the epitome of the kind and generous people Bhutan is known for. Rather than being on a tour with a strict and set itinerary we felt more like we were being shown this enchanting country by two old friends.
Despite not being the typical destination for travellers in their mid-twenties we had a blast in Bhutan and left with smiles on our faces and fresh air in our lungs. I strongly recommend Illuminating Tours if you are considering travelling to Bhutan and plan on making memories that will last you a lifetime!”
