CUSTOM TRIPS TO BHUTAN
PRIVATE TRAVEL FOR YOU, YOUR FAMILY & FRIENDS
Custom isn't complicated: in fact over 70% of our travelers visit Asia on a Custom Journey. And here's the beauty, a custom trip to Bhutan trip departs on dates of your choosing and you travel only in the company of loved ones to destinations entirely up to you. You determine the trip length and focus. The type of Bhutan hotels and lodging is up to you, as are included meals. All Bhutan trips are accompanied by expert private local guides and drivers, all for about the price of a group departure (or if you choose, the sky is of course the limit).
