Bhutan tour tariff is set by government and it is mandatory for all the tour operators to provide this tariff to people wishing to travel to Bhutan. Tariff is the same for cultural tours, treks and any other special interests tours. Although all tour operators are registered by the government, there are some operators who often run tour below the government set tariff. This is often termed as “under quoting” and if government comes to know, your visas will be revoked. So be wise in choosing the tour company for your travel to Bhutan.
The set Bhutan tour tariff is US $250 per night per person for high seasons months of March, April, May, September, October and November. And US $200 per night per person for low season months of January, February, June, July, August and December. If you travel in a group of less than three people, you are liable for the surcharge: US $40 per night for one traveler, US $30 for 2 travelers and there is no surcharge for three travelers and above. The cost include meals, government taxes, hotels, tour or trekking guide, driver, land transport within Bhutan, necessary entrance fees and sightseeing but does not include your personal expenses such as drinks and beverages, bottled water, phone calls, laundry, tips and insurance of any kind.
