Our Client Testimonials

  • 我和朋友在2015年7月开始计划不丹的旅行,直接找到了zoid jin tours。开始办理签证的时候遇到了很多波折,但是旅行社的工作人员非常耐心,一直用微信保持联系,确认行程和酒店的相关细节。也许是因为朋友之前也推荐过这一家旅行社,外加平常的工作也相对比较繁忙,没有太多的时间整理不丹的旅行计划,我们完全委托旅行社策划整个行程。在不丹的8天过的充实而丰富,导游是虔诚的佛教徒,对于寺庙建筑与宗教历史的种种都娓娓道来。其中有一个细节让我记忆深刻,在去不丹之前我和朋友就在微信中透露出想要穿当地的民族服饰游览寺庙,旅行社的工作人员非常细心的交代了导游。我们一到不丹,导游就带我们买到了物美价廉的民族服饰,下午的时候就麻烦酒店的小姑娘帮我们换上,带我们参观寺庙。而不丹人进寺庙的时候需要佩戴红色的围巾搭配传统服饰,导游早早就准备好围巾给我们。整个旅途中,旅行社满足了我们的各种要求,比如更换行程,选不同的餐厅就餐,虽然是两人包团的形式,可是更像是自由行,还不用担心交通。所以强烈推荐zoid jin tours,感谢他们的照顾,我们的不丹行开心又圆满。小豆子
    With Regards Doudou Li
  • Dear Sangay, Thanks again for the fantastic tour; we had a great time in Bhutan.Melinda and I had a wonderful time in Bhutan. The hotels were extraordinary, beyond fantastic, and the Bhutan sights, particularly the Tiger's Nest, were the most amazing I have seen anywhere in the world. The Buddhist culture and general happiness and serenity in everyone is evident everywhere, it was a great change to India, and the lack of horns and traffic and noise was welcomed. The valleys and mountains are vast and pristine. In my opinion it is the greatest place on Earth, and would recommend Kelzang's team and his tour company to anyone.
    With Regards Jason Ward
