    5.0 - Excellent

    I had never done an organised tour before this but I am so glad I chose to visit Myanmar with G Adventures. Even though it was a budget tour, we always stayed in hotels and the itinerary was great. Inle Lake, riding around Bagan and exploring Yangon were the highlights. The guide worked really hard to always make sure we were having a good time and we always knew what we were going to be doing that day. There was a good balance of planned activities and free time and you could always choose if you wanted to go along with the group or not. All the local guides were really friendly and happy to show us around their country and the local people were very nice.

    4.0 - Good

    I really enjoyed this tour. The hotel were really good. The only thing is that I would generally prefer some more activities something to do in the morning, afternoon & evening. Also if you are thinking of doing the ballooning in Bagan, unless your really, really want to, I personally wouldn't recommend from a price point of view, I don't think it was worth from a value for money point of view.

    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.
