I found out about Breathe Bhutan through watching Kara and Nate on Youtube. Bhutan had always struck me as a unique country among Asian destinations for its beauty, traditions, and nature. I had plan to travel to the country after finishing graduate school, however, I had to postpone due to the coronavirus pandemic. I finally had a chance to visit the country after waiting for 5 years, and it did not disappoint. My trip was fun and left me with many memorable moments. The booking process is easy. You go onto the website and send the tour company a message regarding your interest and potential itinerary, and they will respond within a day. If everything goes through smoothly, you will get your visa a couple days before the trip. I went as a solo traveller and was driven around towns in a SUV, but you can go as a bigger group and they can arrange for a bigger car. Even though there is a planned itinerary, you can always work with your guide and driver to make changes, and they are very flexible with the schedule. Accompanying me was my tour guide Pelden and driver NT who were amazing at their jobs. Pelden was knowledgeable and caring and always made sure that you were enjoying the trip. He led me through all the hikes and made sure that I was comfortable and safe. I learned a lot about Bhutanese history, religion, and culture through him. NT was fun and taught me how to play archery. He was also amazing at dart (Bhutanese dart is so different from our regular dart). I had so much fun shooting arrows, and it was definitely one of the most fun part of the trip (make sure to bring some bandages to protect your finger). Thank you Pelden and NT, Mr. Kinley and Breathe Bhutan team for making my trip happen. I will definitely come back to visit in the next 5 to 10 years and explore other parts of Bhutan.

Our trip to Bhutan was very special and felt different from any other trip we've been on. This was due not only to the amazing scenery but also to the warm hospitality we were shown by the Breathe Bhutan team (especially Kiran and Kinga, our guide and driver) and the various other people we met when we were there. From the moment we arrived, we felt like we were welcomed like old friends and nothing was ever too much trouble for Kiran or Kinga. They were the most wonderful team we could have asked for - we felt like they were constantly looking out for ways to improve our experience and we were very touched by how much attention they paid to the little things we said or did, and how quickly they responded thereafter. Their personable way of relating to us left us feeling like we really got to know them as friends, and watching them interact with both kids and elderly people with so much gentleness and respect left us with such a positive impression of Bhutanese culture. We were told several times on the trip that we seemed really happy, and that we laughed a lot - most of the credit for this goes to Kiran and Kinga for taking great care of us, and for letting us feel like we were always in safe hands. Kinley also made time to meet us several times on our short trip. It's clear how personally invested he is in ensuring his guests have a meaningful time in Bhutan, and the personal touch went a long way.

Spent a week travelling in Bhutan with breathe bhutan. Really liked my guide, and the tailored planning - I asked for a mix of sightseeing and hiking and the planning was great. They were very thoughtful, answering all my questions beforehand, adapting to my changing schedule, and then on the ground the experience was amazing. The guide was thoughtful, caring and made sure I get out the best out of the trip. He went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable, and was great to chat to. His knowledge on bhuddism and bhutan history was unparalleled, especially after talking about other tourist experience, and he was a great hiker. Would definitely recommend!

My wife and I had a wonderful honeymoon in Bhutan, which was superbly organized by Breathe Bhutan. We thoroughly enjoyed all the moments we spent in Bhutan. Our experience with Breathe Bhutan was exceptional. Starting from my initial email exchanges with Jigme for planning our trip, to the time we were dropped off at the Paro Airport. Pelden, our guide for the trip, was wonderful. He always ensured we were comfortable and satisfied. Kinzang, our driver, took us around Thimphu, Paro and Punakha safe and comfortable. An unexpected situation forced us to cut short our trip. A strenous situation was made easier to handle by the support given by the Breathe Bhutan team. Thank you so much. Bhutan was a wonderful and magical place to start our marital journey. We got to explore and experience a small part of Bhutan in the time we had. Our experience has left us wanting more, and we want to come back to Bhutan many more times.

I've been planning our family vacation to Bhutan as from 2019, however we had to cancel our trip and postpone it to 2023, given the pandemic. Jigme and Kinley from Breathe Bhutan were helpful throughout - and thanks to them we planned our personalised itinerary to the most minute of details. Both the trip to Bhutan and Breathe Bhutan exceeded our expectations in every possible way. On day 1 we were invited to Kinley's house to a traditional Bhutanese dinner, where we met his family and friends. Nima, our guide, was amazing and he even took us on a hike they was not in our itinerary! Last bit not least our driver, Sonam, was one of a kind! Traveling to Bhutan is an experience that I'll treasure for the rest of my life...however what made it more unique are the uniquely amazing people of Breathe Bhutan and the Bhutanese themselves! Highly recommended!

I recently went on a 5-day trip to Bhutan with Breathe Bhutan and it was an unforgettable experience. The team at Breathe Bhutan were super patient with all my queries and prepared almost 3 different itineraries to finally decide on 1, and honestly, it was the best itinerary. They even took care of my Mum's birthday and gave us the best surprises. It was truly the most special birthday for Mum and we couldn’t have asked for anything better for her 50th. Our tour guide Dorjee Wangchuk was the most patient person, went on hikes with me and became the man behind all my solo photos. We got a chance to bond and share stories about each other's culture during our stay at a homestay and will forever cherish that stay. I definitely want to plan another trip to Bhutan and it will be only and only with Breathe Bhutan and Dorjee. I cannot imagine travelling to Bhutan without this team now. All because of the experience they gave, I think Bhutan has topped the list of my favourite countries. The most peaceful country with the happiest & kindest people. I highly recommend Breathe Bhutan for anyone planning a trip to this beautiful country. Their attention to detail, professionalism, and care for their clients is unmatched. Thank you, Breathe Bhutan, for making my trip with family so special! ✨

What an outstanding experience. Breathe Bhutan organised our trip from start to finish and ensured that everything was seamless during our trip. From the moment we landed in Paro, we were welcomed with open arms by Nima & Phuentsho. Every day was truly spectacular — we had unique local experiences (including meals in Bhutanese homes, planting rice plants in the paddy fields & attending professional archery competitions!). The hospitality of the Bhutanese people is second to none, and we will always remember our time here because of the people we met along the way. If you are interested in coming to Bhutan look no further than Breathe Bhutan — they are a great team! Special thanks to Nima & Phuentsho who spent morning, noon, and night with us & who made our trip truly amazing. Also shoutout to Kinley, the owner of the company, for his hospitality and for making this trip happen.

I traveled to Bhutan from June 04-08, 2023 and Breathe Bhutan made everything possible for me. From the time I sent them email to inquire about if they can customize and curate my itinerary and provide me reasonable cost, until the moment their team safely took me back to the airport on my last day of the trip, I can happily and honestly say that I did the BEST decision of choosing Breathe Bhutan over the other Bhutan-based accredited tour operators. Very customer-friendly, accomodating to all my requests, provided decent, clean & spacious hotels in 3 cities that I’ve been to - Thimphu, Punakha and Paro and offerred Bhutanese experience in terms of food, culture, religion, lifestyle. They have the safest and friendliest driver and most informative and concerned tour guide, and all staff are efficient, professional and quick in reverting to my emails and updating me on status of my visa and receipt of payment. I don’t usually travel with a tour operator however, as it’s a requirement of Bhutan for all visiting foreign tourists, I would easily say that if time and chance permit me to revisit the Kingdom of Bhutan in the near future, I will surely be back hopefully with my son (as I want him to experience the same things I did), and definitely with the same team of Breathe Bhutan.

Our visit to Bhutan with Breathe Bhutan was absolutely amazing! Everything about our trip was arranged wonderfully, and you can really see the pride and care the Breathe Bhutan team puts in to making your experience unforgettable. Visiting Bhutan is by no means cheap, but you should visit now when the country is still relatively undiscovered by tourists. The money from the SDF also goes to good causes, so we were happy to pay it. Even if it were possible, I can’t imagine visiting Bhutan without a guide and driver as you’d miss out on so much of the culture and history knowledge that make Bhutan so special. The itinerary that was arranged was a good balance of seeing a lot and covering lots of ground while in Bhutan, without being too overwhelming. Our guide, Pelden, was incredible and you could tell how much he cared about our experience and making sure we were completely satisfied and loving the trip. The friend I was traveling with has Celiac’s Disease and Pelden was great about ensuring everywhere we went was prepared ahead of time to accommodate her allergy. I had been a little worried about the food before we arrived, but the places they took us all had amazing food and LOTS of it. Our driver, Kinzang, was great and did an amazing job making us feel safe even despite the “interesting” roads all throughout Bhutan. We are two 25 year old women and felt completely safe in Bhutan during the entire trip. It is an amazing country to go to and I’d encourage everyone to go sooner than later. If you’re fortunate enough to go, you MUST book with Breathe Bhutan. They allow you to completely customize your experience, and are incredibly invested in making sure you have the best experience. PS: perhaps our favorite experience was our first night, getting to have dinner and drinks with the Breathe Bhutan team. That will be a memory we cherish for a very, very long time! All the best.
