Hi I am off on my ATW trip in September (yey) starting off in India and then working all around SE Asia. There are a couple of places that I will want to do guided tours, such as trekking in Nepal (Anapura) and Guided trek etc in Borneo (to climb mt kinabalu, sleep in jungle and see Orang Utan Sanctuary), The only thing is I have no idea exactly when I will be in Borneo, but will be in Nepal in October!
Will it be cheaper for me to book these when I am out there! Can i just turn up in the country and book them there and then!???
I dont want to get ripped off. And want to get the best out of the tours. Will they be cheaper to do out there and available most of the time??
Any suggestions would be grateful.
I would imagine it is cheaper to book once you're there and also then you will know when you want to book them for! I haven't been to Nepal (yet) but have been to Borneo and I didn't book anything in advance so you should be fine. There are plenty of tour operators there which cater for backpackers etc. If you're really unsure have a look in a guide book and they will probably advise you what's best.
Although, when I went the orangutans didn't turn up - Apparently we picked the week when all the wild fruit was perfect so they had no incentive to come visit us! The chap there said it was the first time that had happened so that was just bad luck I believe. Have fun though, it will be brilliant!
hey buddy if u want to visit in
India then you should be take information on my own Site
Hey there, you should have no problems at all booking tours in country, this is what most, if not all backpackers do as its much more flexible, and somewhat cheaper. Like Philymop said, there are plenty of tour operators out there that cater to backpackers, so you're spoilt for choice, actually. Don't worry about this and have a great ATW trip Myself im headed to India and Nepal in a month's time
