  • Great tour and fun! Brittany martin+ Jordan Ecker

Great tour and fun!

My friends and I were traveling Myanmar and had an open day so I decided to scheduled a day tour to learn a little bit about Bagan. GOOD CHOICE!! Ms Rosie was amazing to email and work with and made all of our dreams come true. Our tour guide was Ni Mol (ASK FOR HIM!), he was so sweet, kind, informative and helpful. He took us to temples, pagodas, lunch, a parade, a market, sunset on a boat ride, and so much more! He also helped us figure out our bus ride for the next day and arranged for a driver to pick us up and drive us to it, for free. Our day with Ni Mol was by far our favorite day in Myanmar! Thank you so much for enhancing our experience and being so easy and fun to work with!

  • Great experience! Grimaidi

Great experience!

Went to Yangon for work and decided last minute to extend to see the city. 2 days before I contacted the travel agency (Jenna) and it was all sorted out last minute! Really good service and reply to get it still done in such a short time. On the day itself I had a private tour (1-on-1) with Ms Nara. Honestly, one of the best tours I ever had. Very very knowledgeable and willing to change plans on the spot. Stayed longer at some places and shorter at others. Really perfect guide! In total I had a very good impression of Myanmar & learned a lot. I’m sure if I just went on exploration on my own it would’ve been so different. Again great tour and from my side very recommended!

  •  Inle Lake and Yangon Ira + Sphia

Inle Lake and Yangon

Excellent service from Lucy who worked with us to set up the tour, checked on us during the trip and followed up afterwards to see if we were happy. Our guide for trekking and on the lake, Mr Bun Von was superb. We especially enjoyed the evening walk around the village where he helped us to explore the real life of the villagers. Pounding rice, watching the men make baskets, helping the ladies to plant ginger, dancing with the young girls and just seeing how things worked in the village was an experience I’m sure that our daughter or us will never forget. Ms Nara , the guide in Yangon and Bago was excellent at teaching us about the Buddhist culture and pointing out the small things that otherwise we would have missed. The drivers were safe and the trekking cook did an excellent job as well.

Great 8 days tour

The tour of the Inle Lake is well worth a visit. the market has nice things, some of which you won't see anywhere in Myanmar. The 1054 stupa pagoda at the end of the tour is mind-blowing, really amazing!! Upon suggestion of our hotel (thanaka) we added a visit to the burmese cat breeding center that is also a hotel and restaurant, really cool, you can play with the kittens for 30min. this is very unique location, we rec you visit after the heath of bagan!
