From our guests......
MAD Bhutan certainly put such a wonderful trip together for us, and at such short notice too. We experienced the amazing East and so enjoyed the most amazing views, met some wonderful people and really began to understand this gorgeous country, and it's even nicer people. Travelling with MAD Bhutan gives you the wild experience with the professional edge leaving you free to experience this amazing county to the fullest.
MAD offer an attention to detail and a welcome that is unsurpassed elsewhere. We couldn't recommend MAD Bhutan highly enough - from the first point of contact with Chris to the final goodbye at Paro airport from Kinley we were treated to the best of everything, every detail was tended to and we couldn't have wished for more. We truly had the trip of a lifetime and we have memories to savour for the rest of our lives. If you are considering visiting Bhutan definitely choose MAD Bhutan and definitely choose to travel the East of the country to see the Real Bhutan. 10/10!
Rachel & Malcolm
The pre-trip process was thorough, with an opportunity for us to make various requests and ask questions. We were also provided with a pre-trip document to prepare things like what to pack etc. Chris was incredibly patient with our thousands of questions too.
The trip itself was smooth going, with a very accomodating and thoughtful guide and an amusing driver. The agency also provided hiking poles, which were very useful in the (to me strenuous!) trek to the Tiger's Nest .
Thank you for the good time!
Definitely will recommend MAD if you are heading to bhutan any time! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻Chris was very accommodating and patient to all our requests and endless questions before the trip and always check in on us to make sure we were good during the trip. The guide kinley took really good care of us throughout the trip, wouldn’t make it through Tiger’s Nest without his help! MAKE A DIFFERENCE by travelling with MAD, profits will go to helping the kids in the rural area parts of Bhutan, so you can give back and have fun at the same time! 😃

Thank you so much madbhutan for making our trip so amazing! I have made many wonderful experiences ranging from visiting the iconic Tiger’s Nest, temples and monasteries to visiting the humble abode of a local and also to having once-in-a-lifetime scenic picnic lunch on top of a hill. All these would not be possible without Chris’s arrangement. He’s been an absolute gem, patiently answering our endless questions and constantly checking in on us to make sure we are fine. Special shout out to Kinley, the awesome guide, who was so thoughtful and went over and beyond to make sure we were well taken care of. Will definitely recommend madbhutan to everyone who is keen to visit Bhutan!
I was recommended by my photography friends about MAD when researching on tour trips to Bhutan. After numerous conversation with Namgay and Chris, my wife and I are on our trip to Bhutan! Kinley was our guide, he was not only very polite and pleasant, but even more knowledgeable in the history and culture of Bhutan. He was accommodating to our requests especially for a photographer with a tad too many cameras! We enjoyed the conversations to learn more about the Bhutanese culture and way of life. We gained the wholesome immersive experience of Bhutan. Through MAD, we understood happiness as a state of mind, not a state of achievement.
My wife, my 10-year-old son and myself joined MAD for a 7 days tour to Bhutan. The entire trip was marvellous, interesting, fun, educational and very memorable one.
Our local guide, Sonam, a very cheerful, responsible, knowledgeable and well articulate young man. We talk, we joke and our laughter all round. He is able to relate things to Singapore that always made us feel at home.
When comes to food, it was our initial concern that food there may not suit us and by brining over instant noodle was the immediate option at that time. To our delight, meals provided were good and our instant noodles were all untouched.
Accommodations are fine, place was clean and within our expectations.
Besides visiting temples, monasteries and major tourist attractions per the itinerary. We had the opportunity to visit local school and also to interact with the students. This gave us a different perspective and experience all together.
Overall it is a very special, meaningful and extraordinary trip unlike any other vacations we had. To the point that my son had to leave Bhutan reluctantly with tears.
We plan to revisit Bhutan some day to explore more of Bhutan and do a school's visit once again.

“Why should you bring your daughter to Bhutan? Why don’t you choose more kid-friendly destination?”
That’s how my colleagues discouraged me before visiting Bhutan with my 2-year old girl.
Joined a family trip with MAD has opened our (and their) mind. I am impressed on how Namgay (our guide) and Samgay (our driver) encouraged us to feel the most authentic Bhutanese experience, while still ensuring our comfort. P.S.: They are also good with kids! :D
Thank you MAD for providing the most unforgettable experience for our little family. Surely, hiking through Taktsang with my daughter is a story that gets a special place in our heart :)
Natya and (2-year old) Aeris
I would like to thank you very much for everything. The trip was one of the the best trips I ever had. I would also say for Sonam and the driver. They did more then expected to make our holiday great!

My friends and I joined MAD for our maiden trip to Bhutan. We were very impressed with the services from the tour agency from the first contact we had in Singapore till the end of the trip in Bhutan. We had the flexibility to customise our itinerary. Our guide Sonam and our driver Choki made the trip even more enjoyable with their hospitality and humour. Also, we thought we had paid for three-star accommodation, but the stay seemed more like four to five stars. We will recommend MAD without hesitation.
Tan Poh Lay
….With its incredible view, unique culture, interesting Buddhist teaching and friendly people, Bhutan is one destination that worth to be included in your bucket list. We went to this exotic country a couple of weeks ago and we had such a memorable trip, thanks to MAD Bhutan (NAMGAY and SONAM a.k.a.ICEMAN) for being an amazing host. They made sure we were comfortable from A to Z where at the same time brought us to feel the most authentic Bhutanese experience. We didn’t feel like being accompanied by tour guide but instead by good friends showing around their homeland…
John & Lisa
We were impressed by the guide's attention to detail when we toured Bhutan. Unlike the standard tourist commentary, he was able to provide a rich historical background peppered with anecdote answering our curiosity. The choice of hotel and restaurant selection addressed our requirement too.
Indeed, we would recommend Namgay because he goes the extra mile to understand what are your needs and delivers with a personal touch. Professional nonetheless.
Regina & Peter Yeo
They say Bhutan is the happiest place on earth. I do know what happiness is, having my own beautiful family and living in a safe and rich country like Singapore. But I couldn’t imagine happiness measured on such a grand, nationwide scale, as if it is something they are born and die with, and I was prepared to prove it was all exaggerated. Put simply, after my few days in Bhutan, what I have seen and heard, have humbled me. Bhutan did not consciously manufacture this happiness. They are born with it :-) If you have a chance, you must experience Bhutan.
