As each and every of our tours is customized to our guests needs and interests, our rates naturally vary a great deal. For a basic idea, our charges (per person, per day) usually range between US$ 75 - 120, depending on the number of guests, length of tour and specific facilities. Please contact us as we often have specials and discounts available. We also have a list of interested people wishing to join with other guests. Our tours are all inclusive, meaning except for personal shopping or alcoholic beverages, you won't require any cash. Please keep in mind that profits stay in the villages & communities visited and go directly to selected development and ecological conservation projects. We pay fair wages to our full & part time staff and fair prices to our suppliers of goods and services. We provide:
• Airport reception and transfers
• All accommodations (twin sharing) at selected hotels, communities and homes
• All local travel and transport (except domestic flights)
• All meals: B/L/D, snacks and bottled water
• All entrance fees, documentation, porter and other charges
• Experienced, English-speaking tour leaders
• Additional local guides and hosting fees
• Pre-departure information and orientation
• Tender loving care and attentive service
Are you backpacking or traveling on a budget? Don't let the basic rate mentioned above scare you off, email us instead! If you're willing to rough it a bit, we are the only tour people in Bangladesh who love to work with backpackers and help you in any way we can. We can almost always work something out together or provide much of the help you'll need and plenty of free advice to boot. We can also assist in hooking up individuals into small groups, whether they booked our tours or not.
Alternatively, if you need just that little extra pampering - a few extra options or upgrades, or are doing some research project, searching for an long-lost friend (or legend), or have some new idea of any kind, we're only too willing and able to coordinate it. This is our specialty and where we excel - being flexible and happy to work around your individual needs, we love a good challenge.
If find you our rates low compared to neighboring countries or the handful of other local tour operators in Bangladesh, don't fret, you 'll soon discover why -- we're a small, efficient and personal outfit, able to offer you more value for your travel budget. You'll never find our service lacking nor your comfort and satisfaction compromised, indeed our guests receive the very best (and live to speak about it!). Visit our guest comments page and read what previous survivors have to say.
Due to the nature of these ecotour adventures, we recommend you make your booking as early as possible -- to ensure your desired time slot and allow us time to arrange it. To prevent undue pressure on the environment and the local culture, our tours are limited to very small groups and are well-spaced. This also insures you're never arriving while another group is leaving. A two month (60 day) advance booking is our norm and what we recommend. However, a month advance is often possible. So don't despair, even if you've left things to the very last moment and have to SMS us from the runway -- we try to be flexible to your needs.
A US$100-200 per guest reservation charge (deductible) is needed to book your tour. The remainder is payable 30 days before your tour begins. For further details and to read our terms & conditions along with a booking form, please go to our reservations page. To request a personalized or custom tour, just email us.
Extras, such as additional river trips, excursions, traditional performing arts & crafts events or demonstrations, filming and other custom requests and requirements are available by prior arrangement. Additional charges may apply. If there is anything of special interest to you that hasn't been mentioned, just ask -- we're only a click away.
"What you offer was definitely one of the most memorable and deeply moving travel experiences of my life, and I've been to far too many places to enumerate here. I do hope you'll be able to assist the indigenous people in their quest for a sustainable and fair existence. They certainly deserve it. Whatever we can learn from them will certainly make the planet a better place for all of us."
