Jigme Chodup was a fabulous guide through all of Bhutan, up to Tigers Nest, which I would ever have made were it not for him.

What a great experience- I went without much thought or research, Chimi (tour arranger) was amazing from the start, finding an itinerary that suited my interest and time frame. She handled everything, including keeping me calm and happy through the visa application and some tricky travel arrangements. Our connection was delayed, and Access Bhutan Tours & Treks got us on...

HIGHLY recommended tour company! Very organized and professional company. The owner of the company, Chimi is very passionate and concerned about making the guest's experience a memorable one. During the trip, I forgot something at the hotel, which unfortunately went missing.. Chimi however persistently contacted the hotel and ended up getting my stuff back. Not only that, she sent it...
