Jillian "An amazing trip, Myanmar is a thrilling adventure full of the most generous and warm hearted people I've met in SE Asia. This trip will take you to all the main sights but also into the countryside and small interesting stops along the way. It's full on and fast paced but very well organised. Our guide Myo Win Tun was an absolute star. Highlights were Bagan (if you want to do balloon ride you must..."

    This tour has an excellent itinerary. Our tour leader Thant was outstanding, making the trip enjoyable. Love the experience including all the interactions with the locals. Beware that Kalaw and Inle Lake are much much cooler than Yangon, and be sure to also... Read more

    Thura Lwin, our tour guide made this trip the best trip ever! Everything was organised briliantly. Whatever we asked Thura, it was done for us immediately. We were so lucky to have such an excellent tour guide. 10 stars from me goes to the guide!

    Interesting tour but there is much more to see in Myanmar. There are more things to see around Inle Lake and the stay there should be longer. I would also include a few days on the beach somewhere in the country.

    The itinerary was great! It provided a good overall introduction to Myanmar and included cities and rural areas. The highlights were the balloon trip over Bagan, the boat ride on Inle Lake, and the visit to the villages through the Community Lodge stay.

    Sensational trip. Amazing people. Exquisite sites. The ballooning over Bagan is a must—and well worth the extra fee. Our guide, Thant Zin, made every part of the trip effortless and fun.
