Bhutan by Karchung® and Bhutan Guides of Distinction™. Far Fung Places works with the highest caliber guides in the kingdom who have scored in the top 15 percent of the rigorous certification exams that Kathleen Fung helped to design. For our other destinations Africa, Asia, etc. our national guides are the top in their field and have longstanding relationships with Far Fung Places.


What's included in our land price and scheduled group departures? This website gives an excellent overview of each program, but comprehensive daily itineraries are available upon request. Select the program that fulfills some secret yearning, and then call or e-mail our office for an itinerary. +1 415 386 8306 or info@farfungplaces.com


Meals. With all of our regularly scheduled programs we have a comprehensive meal program for the safety of our clients. In international gateway cities at the start or end of the program we include only breakfast. In Bhutan, all meals are included. Please refer to your individual itinerary for meal inclusions.


Gratuities. On our scheduled programs gratuities are included for guides, drivers and their helpers, hotel reception and airport staff, ground staff, restaurants, and airport and hotel porters. The only exception is the end of the trip gratuity for the tour manager, which is at your discretion. Exceptions: Our Bhutan Unfurling™ and Western To Eastern Bhutan™ programs do not include gratuities for the tour guides, tour directors, or drivers but do include tips to hotel, reception, and restaurant staff. Our custom-designed programs and Africa safaris do not include gratuities unless otherwise stated. Neither Kathleen Fung nor Dennis Keser accept gratuities.


Accommodations. In some countries standards of luxury may be lower than we are accustomed to on well-trodden tourist paths. In remote regions, we endeavor to offer the best, most comfortable available. In Bhutan on our scheduled programs, we use the highest standard local hotels, some newly built heritage properties, and resorts.


Transfers. These are included if arriving and departing with the group.


Travel Prep Letter™. This intimate letter helps you prepare for the trip: recommendations for attire, health tips including inoculations and medications, dos and don'ts, shopping, and a recommended reading list.


Final documents. A comprehensive final itinerary, baggage tags, hotel list with telephone and fax numbers if available, and a list of fellow travelers is sent 30 days prior to departure.


Visa support. We work with Pinnacle Travel Documents™ for all visas and passport requirements. Exception: Bhutan visas, which we provide as part of the service.
