We will travel to Guyana in September. Does anybody know a reliable travel agency for arrangements and visa support?
Thanks in advance
We used Dagron Tours and were very pleased with our tour. You can find many more operators listed here:
You'll get 10 opinions from 10 different people about Guyana tour operators. Your best bet is to look at the main players' websites and get a sense of their offerings, prices, approach, and experience. Contact them and see how responsive they are. Don't take cost at face-value... some operators offer more than others, so you have to look carefully at what's being sold. Don't just assume the cheapest is the best deal.
Visit Guyana is a general tourism promotion website that names most of the main tour operators and gives links to their websites: http://www.gotoguyana.org/tour_operators/
The Ministry of Tourism / Hospitality Association also lists a directory: www.exploreguyana.org/category/TourOperators
You should also grab a copy of the Bradt Guide to Guyana (Kirk Smock) which remains the definitive guide to all things Guyana.
There are many travel agencies in Guyana but I suggest you stick with your Airline representative/Agent in Guyana for the best service.
For visa support you should check with the Airline and they can suggest to you where to get your visa if needed and where to get the support you need when in Guyana.
The Government of Guyana has a webpage with information about travelling to Guyana and everything you will need.
Enjoy your trip.
Thanks to Benwood093 for the link to Guyana Tourism Authority which I neglected to include in my earlier post.
The international airlines serving Guyana (Caribbean, Liat, Surinaam, Conviasa... and soon Copa & Insel) don't provide tourism services. A visitor's best bet is to either book their own arrangements with the help of a printed guide like Bradt... or to employ the assistance of one of the GT tour operators.
If you plan on visiting the interior region, just 'showing up' isn't an option and advance planning is essential. On the other hand, tours and activities around Georgetown can often be organized on short notice and most local hotels will provide some level of assistance. Again - get the Bradt guide.
MRMinSF and Benwood093. I find it odd that you both? >> didn't bother reading my post #1 found above. Particularly the link provided.
