    4.5 - Excellent

    I had great time. It covered the major highlights of Myanmar, accommodation was surprisingly quite good and the activities planned were interesting. City tours by bike and ebike around Inle Lake and Bagan respectively were highlights. The rides are quite flat so no need to fret if you are not fit. The hike from Keng Tung was not difficult in the slightest. There are no long periods of carrying your bags on this tour so bringing a suitcase would be fine.

    I am an American citizen. If I do this tour should I get the Myanmar visa in Thailand or before I leave?

    For Myanmar visas, G Adventures advises that all travellers will need a visa in advance and should apply for one at the closest Myanmar Embassy to your country of origin. You will need to obtain the one-month visa before the trip starts.

    I was struggling to get seats on a coach tour I was trying to organise at late notice. TourRadar came to the rescue and secured the seats. Not having used them before I was impressed with their rapid response to my initial booking and my subsequent questions.
