20I was hoping to follow up on my own question as soon as I got back from my trip. Though, time (even alot of time) seems to pass quickly. Though, in case it helps any future traveler "Greener Pastures" really worked with me and my budget. It was still more expensive than I'd prefer, but most likely cheaper than any other company. Good luck!

21For anyone who might have the same question, I just wanted to follow up and say that the company "Greener Pastures" really helped me with getting into the Arunachal Pradesh. There might be other companies that are equally good. Though after spending countless hours researching so many different suggestions- I want to make it easier on people and suggest that they at least reach out to this company (as well as doing whatever other research seems right). They really helped to streamline the process of getting a permit to the AP. Though it took some time. I can't remember how much time, but maybe a month or two- so, start early!

22Also, while I "had to" get a guide... the trip was SO MUCH richer with the guide. Every other area I visited in India was on my own. But in the AP, especially if you want to experience the culture, I'd recommend not fighting the idea of having a guide. I don't know if this is true with all tour agencies, but with Greener Pastures the guides have lived in the local community- so you have access to "real life" so much more than if you were just passing by on your own.

23And, one last thought, just to be clear... Greener Pastures did help me to get in to AP as a solo traveler (for those of you who feel it's nearly impossible to get a permit to the AP for just one person). It would have been cheaper if I went with another person or a group of people. Though, as I didn't know people who wanted to go to the same places as me at the same time as me- I went on my own. Economically, I'd advise going with more people. Though, if you're just by yourself- it is doable. Good Luck!
