SVP, Head of Platform Data Models at Refinitiv
In 2003 my husband and I enjoyed a magical visit to Bhutan, thanks largely to our extraordinary guide, Namgay Dorji, and driver, Kencho. We not only viewed the splendor of the landscape and the harmony of the architecture, we experienced this fascinating culture in a very personal way, as a participant and not just an observer. It was like having a friend take you around to all of the insider places that tour groups never see. We had the opportunity to meet local people and learn about their lives as well as about customs and religion. Namgay went above and beyond the call of duty to provide us with the best possible experience, modifying the itinerary when necessary to allow us to take full advantage of unexpected opportunities and to align with our interests. We are very experienced travelers and our visit to Bhutan ranks highly among the best tours we have ever taken anywhere, largely thanks to Namgay’s solicitous care and wealth of knowledge about the country.

I cannot say enough good things about Namgay’s professional and personal attributes. He is a very detail oriented guide but also able to think outside the box and offer creative options to suit the needs of his clients. My wife & I have recommended Namgay to many friends and colleagues (hopefully we can return to Bhutan again as we know we’d be well welcomed by a great guide and friend). He’s an incredible guide & resource for anyone to have in Bhutan.

Spending a week in Bhutan under the guidance of Namgay Dorji was just amazing, an experience I will never forget. Namgay’s dedication and love for his country was. shining through in everything he was doing. He made us very welcome as guests in his country, and he treated us as his friends. His knowledge of his unique country and of Buddhism is just exceptional. He never got tired of answering our questions again and again and he always had little interesting stories with his answer. I have done a lot of traveling in the past. Namgay is on top of my list as a friend and guide. He is just outstanding. Heide Boehle, Australia

Namgay did an exceptional job guiding myself and my family through the exquisite Kingdom of Bhutan. He was courteous and detail oriented with a strong knowledge of the country’s complicated social and religious history. He provided a flexible experience so all party members were satisfied. He was passionate about his work and provided a perfect once (and hopefully twice) in a lifetime trip. I would highly recommend his services for any Bhutanese travel in the future.
Independent Government Administration Professional
Namgay Dorji was employed as a Trip Leader by a Bhutanese trekking contractor hired by Geographic Expeditions, Inc. to fulfill the government of Bhutan’s regulations for foreign treks. Namgay was responsible for ensuring that bus transportation, lodging, camping equipment, camp staff, and mule and yak drivers were scheduled and available; that all Bhutanese regulations were followed by the clients; and that fees and money were paid to the contractors. It was my responsibility to ensure Geographic Expedition clients were provided with the amenities they paid for; that the group observed and participated in various functions in Bhutan; and that all care was taken to ensure their safety throughout their remote wilderness trek. To that end, Namgay and I worked together daily sharing information and communicating hourly to our clients. Namgay was easily the most pleasant, efficient, and energetic trip leader I have worked with in Bhutan. What’s more, his English is perfect and his personality fits well with Geographic Expedition clientele. I highly recommend Namgay in his capacity of trip leader and owner/operator of his own trekking firm.
Owner Hutchins Farms
Namgay was a great trip leader on a trek I was on several years ago in Bhutan. Besides ensuring that the day in and day out details of a complicated trek were well taken care of, Namgay also knew a tremendous amount about the birds, plants, and natural history of Bhutan. He also has an encyclopedic memory when it comes to Bhutan’s well renowned monasteries, cultural, and religious history.
