Customer Reviews

Hi Diu, We are back. In short, the trip was very well-organized. I have traveled to maybe 45 countries and this was one of my best trips ever. Let me give some specific feedback:
1) Accommodations: we were very happy with all the hotels but the Treasure Resort in Bagan was very special and the Amata Garden Resort was fantastic. Perhaps our view was changed because the places were mostly empty in the off season - but these two places were gems. They all offered very good breakfasts for us.
2) Tour Guides: All the guides were adequate and we never felt rushed. They were well-organized and polite. They allowed us to change our plan when needed. The guide in Inle Lake was particularly good.
3) Drivers: ...
Best part of the trip - the Myanmar people. I will strongly recommend this trip to others.
