A beautiful, well-organized trip through a very special country. We enjoyed the beautiful nature and the tranquility of Bhutan. The guide and driver were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Be aware that sometimes you need to do a lot of climbing on trails that can be a bit difficult.

We normally arrange our trips ourselves, but in Bhutan it is mandatory to travel with a guide. We found Better Places online and the concept of local expertise and using small-scale organizations really appealed to us. We presented our travel wishes: a combination of culture and nature and travelling at a relaxed pace. The local organizer responded promptly to all our emails and came up with a great proposal. Upon arrival the guide and driver were already waiting for us. Everything went smoothly with enough opportunities to adjust the programme if we wished to. This meant we were able to attend an unexpected, colourful festival. We spent the nights in hotels and homestays, all really nice and interesting. Despite an age difference of over 30 years, we had very nice contact with our guide and driver. We received a lot of information and had lots of fun as well. We were even invited to a meal at their home. It was a great trip!
