What Our Clients Say

Ms. Jick Ryan – Bangkok, Thailand … 

Have now arrived home in Bangkok, am trying to recover from legs’ pain from all the great walking to various pilgrimage sites and fantastic locations!!  Have shared many wonderful stories with my family and my house is now filled with pine cones and Tsang (incense) which I bought from the Sunday market.

I really enjoyed my time in Bhutan and special thanks also to my guide Tshering, who provided an engaging trip with all of his knowledge on Buddhist religion and philosophy. 

Eugenie Morton – Boulder, Colorado – USA … 

When we flew over the house we were tipping over the plane trying to wave good-bye at you!  What an amazing 11 days we have had with you… a lot to “unpack” as we like to say in the West… I will enjoy doing this leisurely, on my own and with friends. You each made our time in Bhutan so powerful and fantastic on so many levels. 

We were in such capable hands with Sangay and Tenzin – they tended to us with great care and enthusiasm.  As we were dropped off at the airport we all had tears in our eyes – such good-hearted people – and I hope to stay in touch with Sangay as now she’s kind of an adopted daughter!  Many thanks and great appreciation to the team for all things great and small.

Petra Maierhöfer – Manila, Philippines … 

What a treat! Our 11 days in Bhutan were filled and fulfilled with a trip to Punakha, Phobjika and back, a 5 day trekking tour in Haa, followed by sightseeing in and around the Paro valley. We are fascinated by Bhutan and the way you have organized our travel: so customized and individual. It was truly an unforgettable and inspiring experience.

Thanks very much to all of you for this personal care. We will definitely recommend Blue Sky to our friends who are interested to visit Bhutan. Bhutan and the Blue Sky Team are a great combination which we were lucky to experience and hopefully you will too.

Michael A. Franklin – Colorado, USA … 

Following a conference that I attended in Thimphu at the Royal University of Bhutan, I booked 4 days with Blue Sky Tours. Tshering picked me up and from the moment I entered his comfortable car, he began to show me the Bhutan that I would never find on my own. He took me to holy places of pilgrimage, where the Bhutanese arts thrive, and into beautiful landscapes.

Overall, the Blue Sky team were the perfect hosts – their email correspondence was impeccable, they were exceptionally knowledgeable about Buddhism, the varied landscapes of Bhutan, and sites of pilgrimage.  Between the excellent accommodations and guiding, this truly was a perfect holiday!

June Hager – Washington DC, USA … 

Hurry, hurry to visit the very last Himalayan kingdom to preserve not only ist independence, but also its culture, traditions and religious values.  And when you go you MUST travel wit Blue Sky Tours!  This small agency combines amazing efficiency, personal attention and deep insight into Bhutan’s history, culture and religion. When my daughter and I decided to make a very last minute trip to Bhutan in September, Blue Sky was back to us almost immediately, in spite of a 10-hour time difference, with suggested itineraries, projected costs, and proposed hotels and cultural events.  Our visas, flight arrangements and reservations followed soon after.

Our Bhutanese guide and driver knew very well the country’s history and culture intimately and profoundly. Their love and enthusiasm for the country and culture were contagious. The team were able to fill our days with beauty, choosing hotels, routes and sights with aesthetic care and our guide, Tshering, as an experienced Buddhist practitioner, explained the significance of paintings, murals, art and architecture with passion and expertise.

Blue Sky was attentive to all our personal preferences and wishes. If we wished to change the itinerary or add or delete sights or events all was flexible and easy.

Marc Wennberg – Triptych Journey, Burlington, Canada … 

Blue Sky Tours has what you want in a tour company – personalized service, a meticulous attention to detail, local knowledge and a healthy sense of humor. We employed Blue Sky for our recent film shoot in Bhutan. The company worked with us (and worked some more and more…) to develop an itinerary that fit our changing production goals. They were creative, flexible and intuitive in their efforts to meet our needs.

As a tour leader, Tshering provides excellent customer service along with an irrepressible positive attitude. Behind the scenes, the team also ensures that the smallest of details are identified and covered.  If you are traveling to Bhutan, I strongly recommend Blue Sky Tours.

Ulrich Beyer – Berlin, Germany … 

There are many reasons, why I have chosen to travel with Blue Sky Tours since 2007. All those years, I have never been disappointed with the travel organisation or hospitality of the Blue Sky team. They have been kind and helpful hosts, attending to our every need and making our journeys truly memorable.

My last trip to Bhutan, in 2013, was full of rich experiences and joyful encounters. I was given an insight into Bhutanese nature and culture without feeling like a foreigner. The Blue Sky Tours team gave me the opportunity to travel the country and be a friend, not only a guest. If you travel to Bhutan, take your time. There is so much to explore and enjoy and all of it rewards the traveller with pure joy.

Blue Sky Tours were flexible, well organized and passionate, thus making our stay in Bhutan very unique.

Leslie Shackelford – Palo Alto, California … 

Blue Sky arranged a five day trip to Bhutan that was incredible. I’m from the US and have traveled extensively around the world and lived in Nepal and Thailand. My expectations were exceeded for a short visit to this magnificent country. Our hosts took care of all our needs and provided great home cooked food as well and meals on the go, and in the various types of restaurants that span what a visitor may want to sample.

Our days were filled with thoughtfully planned trips to the main sites as well as many out of the way and not often visited sites, making for a real adventure. Our guide was very knowledgeable about cultural history, myths, landscape, wildlife, architecture and Buddhist teachings. And  was considerate of adjusting that knowledge to our level of interest and our physical abilities. Our trip was tailored to our interests, and was flexible, depending upon what came up!

I would very highly recommend Blue Sky and look forward to our next trip to Bhutan.
