  • Top-Rated Preparation Services: We support your preparation for the trip. We provide information on the birds you will see and all the travel details, including all logistic details (arrival plans, trip itinerary, lodging details and more), information on entry into Thailand and information on travel health issues, packing information and more. Most of our clients comment that our Trip Participation Guide is the best they have ever seen.

  • Transport and Airport Transfers

    • Local ground transport is included. This includes a large transport van for most of the trip. 

    • We also have a driver or guide pick you up at the airport upon arrival, and transfers for internal flights are included, and we arrange for a transfer back to the airport at the end of the trip.  

  • Acre for Bird Conservation: As part of our efforts to support bird conservation, we purchase in the name of customers (for each booking) at least one acre (but averaging between three and four acres) of wilderness to support bird conservation. As our trip prices are often 20% (and often even a better deal) less than our competition, this does not really cost you more and it is a great way to support bird conservation around the world.

  • Small Group Pricing: All the prices mentioned above are for tour groups of six to eight participants. Small group supplements are about $200 USD (160 GBP) for groups of 4 and 5 are very reasonable. We can provide pricing for smaller groups or custom groups.

 

*Pricing Notes and More Details:

 

  • US dollar Pricing: Pricing is estimated in US dollars (USD); however, pricing is firm in Thai Baht. Pricing based on 31 Thai Baht to one US dollar. Any significant change in currency exchange rates may result in $100 to $200 currency adjustment (which we rarely charge).

  • British Pound Pricing: Our 2021 price estimates are mostly based in US Dollars; so, our GBP/British Pound pricing is based upon an exchange rate of 1.25 US Dollars per British Pound for both 2020 updates and 2021. The true exchange rate as of May 11, 2020 was 1.25 USD on the British Pound. We will charge you the actual transaction rate here, but please note that we work to minimize transaction costs. 

  • Bank Fees: We do not charge bank fees for wire transfers for clients paying into our accounts in the United States, the United Kingdom and/or Canada.

  • Note on Meal Inclusion: Meals include three meals per day during any full day of the trip. The arrival day does include lunch and supper. The departure day includes only breakfast, as most flights leave in the morning.

  • Note on Beverage Inclusion: Most of our meals are provided by the lodges, and we follow their practices in providing beverages at meal time. Most beverages are your choice and are an additional expense which you pay to the restaurant or lodge directly. We provide water at the table for supper. We also provide bottled water during the birding day.

  • Group Size: We anticipate a group of 6 to 8 participants, plus driver and one or two guides, on most of these tours. Pricing is based a group size of 6 to 8 participants, with a small group supplement of about $200 USD (160 GBP*) for groups of 4 or 5 participants. We will provide pricing for smaller tours and private groups.

 

Single Room Supplement Required if Not Sharing a Bed: $1090 USD or £870 GBP* is the price we charge for the additional cost of anyone not sharing a bed with a spouse. In rural Thailand (covering most of the tour), most hotels offer rooms with only 1 bed. Rooms with two beds can only be found in more urban areas. We can sort out a smaller single room supplement if you are willing to share a room for the few nights we spend in urban areas. 

 

Note:  For extension, single supplement is $375 USD or £300 GBP*
