Our guides at Bodhibhutan Tandin 1 and Tandin 2 were outstanding in so many ways. They helped me successfully fulfill my hiking experience and much more! Beyond their patience while hiking, I got to experience Buddist Culture and interact with the people of Bhutan. They helped me understand the beauty and magnificent of Bhutan. Myself and the three other travelers with me felt safe, and well serviced throughout our trek with such capable guides. The food and and transportation was provided as well throughout our trek and it was the best food we have experienced on a trek tour! Thank you for making our holiday a true treasure! Kenny from Ohio

I have had the fortune of knowing Tandin and Bodhi Dharma Tours which he operates. Being a photographer myself, he and his team are one the best tour guides that one can come across. They can tailor make any theme from portraits to landscape if anyone is interested. They have a Bike tour for those adventurous souls! The most important aspect though, is the ethics & transparency in dealing with clientele, which is a differentiator in an era where someone promises something and you get something else!
I would strongly recommend Bodhi Dharma tours for those interested in visiting Bhutan.

I have recently returned from an amazing nine day tour of Bhutan.It looks like everybody who goes follows a similar itinerary, i.e. Taktsang Monastery, a trek,Thimphu, Punakha Dzong, etc.; mandated by the Bhutanese government. But our experience was different. The key is getting the right tour guide. Working with Tandin from Bodhi Dharma Tours. we were able to customize our tour while we traveled. After two hotel buffets, we complained and Tandin took us to a different restaurant for the rest of our meals, all featuring organic, home made food. As vegetarians it made it so much easier to observe our diets. Our first night he included a cultural event that wasn't on our itinerary. During our trek, every evening he and our associate guide, also named Tandin, taught us about the history and culture of Bhutan, like the guerrilla raid the fourth king led against revolutionaries, the differences in traditional and western medicine (Tandin was trained as a pharmacist, which helped when my wife developed stomach issues. My wife in fact stated: "I feel so safe with Tandin here"). He even provided massages and wine during the trek. Once, in Thimphu he upgraded our hotel and the next morning our itinerary was set by us: the Takin Reserve, the Institute of Traditional Medicine, a visit and lunch with Bhutanese friend, and a visit to the giant Buddha statue. Every day was like this, tailored specifically to our interests. Even at the Punakha Dzong, Tandin was able to set up an empowerment ceremony for two of our group, and an ancestor ceremony for my wife who had just lost her father, presided over by the senior monk of the temple. He even arranged to have our luggage transferred from Druk Air to India Airways at the Delhi airport. On a personal level, this is man with his head on fire with ideas and love for life. I think he is some kind of Bodhisattva. There is no other way to see Bhutan but with the guidance of Tandin of Bodhi Dharma Tours.
