Comprehensive Birding in Central and North Thailand

2023 Pricing: $3,890 US Dollars*, or £3,170 GBP* for 18 Days and 17 Nights in North and Central Thailand

 

Optional Extension: $1,450 US Dollars*, or £1,110 GBP* for 6 Days and 5 Nights in Southern Thailand

 

Inclusions: 

  • The Tour package includes all lodging, meals*, and access fees to reserves, parks, and other birding sites.

  • Premier Bird Guide: All of our tours use the services of an excellent bird guide, often a well-recognized expert on birding in this area. 

  • 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, 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 above prices are for tour groups of six to eight participants. 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 is based on 31 Thai Baht to one US dollar. Any significant change in currency exchange rates may result in a $100 to $200 currency adjustment (which we rarely charge).

  • British Pound Pricing: (1) Our GBP/British Pound pricing is based upon an exchange rate of 1.31 US Dollars per British Pound (the exchange rate on March 8, 2022). (2) We will charge you the actual transaction rate here, but please note that we work to minimize transaction costs. Using Transferwise, we usually pay under one-half a percent (and sometimes less) on the actual exchange. (3) Due to costs related to UK travel regulations, our tours booked and paid through BlueTailBirding.com (for the UK and European clients) will cost 200 GBP more (and this price is reflected in our website pricing). Please contact us anytime about questions here.   

  • 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 have 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 that 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 drivers and one or two guides, on most of these tours. Pricing is based on a group size of 7 or 8 participants, with a small group supplement of about $200 USD (160 GBP*) for groups of 4 or 6 participants. We will provide pricing for smaller tours and private groups.

 

Single Room Supplement Required if Not Sharing a Bed: $1260 USD or £960 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, the single supplement is $425 USD or £320 GBP*

 

Tipping for Meals/Lodging: Gratuities for drivers, hotel staff, and restaurant staff are included in the pricing for this tour. However, this does not include your trip leader/bird guide.

 

Notes on Other Tour Costs: Exclusions: 

  • The tour fee does not include taxes/fees for entering or exiting the country, telephone calls, laundry, and other items of a personal nature.

  • Tips for birding guides are not included in the tour price.
