Burma photography tour
Excellent small group led by an experienced photographer who showed us many different ways of using light and lenses and who was also relaxed and fun to be with. Our experiences felt real. (more)elizabeth McCormick
Having Nathan Horton on the trip gave a very interesting slant to an already enjoyable holiday. Nathan had a flair for taking the group to places which were not on the tourist trail and this was very much appreciated. (more)John Martin
From £3400 including UK flights
Burma cultural holiday

Small group holiday to Burma
Wonderful! We loved the country and the people, so friendly and kind. We can make no criticism. (more)Eleanor Stewart
Don't hesitate - just go! The operator are an independent company who care that you get the best holiday possible. And they are small enough to make sure you see some of the top sights, but also get you in to see off the beaten track places. (more)Helen White
We probably would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for the expansion of the rating to say that it was 'simply the best holiday I have ever been on'! We have been on other wonderful holidays, but this was up there with the best. (more)John Lippiett
From £2825 - £3195 including UK flights
Burma holidays, small group tour
Memorable: the friendliness of the Burmese people, the close-up look at the cottage industries we were taken to see, and the cruise at Inle Lake. Exciting: Sunrise over Bagan and the U-Bein bridge; visit to the Red Mountain vineyard, the Irrawaddy river cruise, the New Moon festival and parade at Inle Lake. (more)Mike Bromilow
Almost perfect. Our guide was fun as well as being really informative. Apart from the hotel in Yangon all the accommodation was much better than I expected. We had virtually no free time as the guide offered so many options. This was wonderful as we packed as much as possible into the 2 weeks. (more)Lynda Brown
Watching the sun set over the plains of Bagan would be very hard to beat. The most memorable aspect would be the people themselves, they were beautiful, gracious and friendly. (more)Joanna Lee
From £2499 - £2899 including UK flights
Burma highlights tour
The country is incredible – it’s beautiful, the people are friendly, the history is astounding…. We did and saw so much – I cannot pick my best highlight as it’s impossible to choose just one. I was also very fortunate to have a wonderful group to share the experience with. (more)Lorna Marsh
The most memorable parts were the visit to Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon on the final day - the culmination of a feast of sights and experiences packed into a fairly hectic schedule. (more)Andy Jackson
From £2149 - £2569 including UK flights
Burma photography holiday
Memorable parts? Many memorable highlights from sunrise to sunset photo sessions, city life, rural life, train ride, boat ride, not forgetting the horse and carriage ride through the dusty plains of Bagan. Tips? Take a laptop or at least an external hard drive with you, invaluable for the "show & tell" sessions. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? Excellent - Well thought through itinerary staying long enough to explore each base. Excellent - personal photographic... (more)Alison Caviezel
From £2995 including domestic flights only
Burma small group tour
Memorable parts? There was a huge amount of memorable and exciting parts of this trip, however hot air ballooning over Bagan's ancient temples at sunrise had to be one of the most special memories. Tips? Bring large denomination US dollars - this might seem counter intuitive for a country such as this, but you get a better exchange rate. Plus make sure the bills are all pristine; their own money is pretty ragged, but dollars need to have no creases or folds, otherwise some places... (more)Faye Turner
From £1550 - £1890 excluding flights
Burma cultural holiday
Memorable parts? Very difficult as there were so many.... But I suppose I have to say an evening spent in the Hi Ar in Kalaw. Locals enjoying each other's company with singing to guitars was simply enchanting. The tone, the energy, the result and their acceptance of a visitor wishing to partake of their nightly entertainment.... Tips? Respect the local customs, obtain more up to date information relating to changing monies and use of ATMs / credit/ debit cards, take a travelling... (more)Edmund Raczkowski
From £1499 - £1649 excluding flights
Family holiday in Burma
Memorable parts? It was all great. Temples in Bagan, boat ride and views over Lake Inle. Tips? Much of Myanmar great for family travelling. Comfortable hotels, great food. Warm welcome. Train from Yangon to Bagan bumpy but really fun! Local benefits? Yes. But would value more information particularly with regard to hotels. Overall rating? Brilliant. Guides and our agent were really very very good. Logistics perfect. (more)Joanna Macrae
From £1025 - £1450 excluding flights
Burma cultural tour, Yangon and Mandalay
Memorable parts? Coming across by chance a house warming and monk blessing in village house on an island near Bagan. We were invited into the upstairs room for the ceremony and then back to join them for the celebratory lunch afterwards. Tips? Look into the wide variety of options for sight seeing and experiences away from the main tourist route. It's all very safe; extremely interesting and the people are very welcoming. Local benefits? Yes I think so. We used local companies... (more)Jacqueline Scott
From £3295 - £3395 excluding flights
Burma sailing holiday, the Mergui archipelago
The most memorable part of the holiday as enjoying the un-touched part of Myanmar, which otherwise I would not be able to see had I not been on a sailboat. The hornbills, fresh oysters and the bonfire on the beach. (more)Jade Lam
A beautiful relaxing trip. We visited a local village and were able to buy things in the village so bringing some extra income to them. (more)Fiona Bardsley
From £966 - £1505 excluding flights
Burma holiday, off the beaten track
FANTASTIC! It went beyond our expectations! The people are so friendly; we experienced so many things from a drink in a tea house, attending a wedding, horse cart rides, boat rides, going to a local market in Bagan and numerous sunsets in so many locations. (more)Susan Battersby
Burma was a fascinating country to visit. Balloon trip over Bagan was the most memorable part. (more)David Maling
From £2460 excluding flights
Burma tailor made holiday
Excellent. Good balance between relaxation (river and beach) and learning about the country, religion, history etc. (more)Stephen Westacott
In one word - outstanding. (more)Stephen Osgerby
The Elephant Sanctuary and the traveling around Shan State were the best parts of this trip. (more)Nils Bark
From £1499 - £1850 excluding flights
Burma small group holiday
Memorable parts? Burmese people lovely and the Inle Lake was amazing - just like the photos you see Tips? If you go to Burma just make sure you have large dollar notes, as you will get a better rate of interest. Currency changers offer the best rate. Internet connection is poor and you need to get a local sim card when you are over there, but managed to have a wonderful holiday without outside communication. Local benefits? Yes Overall rating? Fantastic and the tour... (more)anne higgins
From £1850 - £2535 including domestic flights only
Cruising holiday in Burma, the Mergui Archipelago
Best bit? All of it but sailing in Mergui archipelago fantastic, exactly as in Burma boating video.Tipping and buying local crafts and using local cafes does help local communities. (more)Jane Dunbar
Fantastic, a wonderful journey. (more)Matt Kyte
From £4995 including UK flights
Burma cycling holiday
Memorable parts? The best part for me was the rides around Inle Lake; really peaceful and interesting riding and the lake a source of life for so much. Great bikes and great group all added to the experience. Tips? Go with the flow; if you choose Monsoon season be prepared to get very very wet; that said it was part of the experience and part of life in Myanmar so it didn't really detract. Just take quick dry clothes and several pairs of shoes/rubber ones help. Local benefits? Yes... (more)Justine henwood
From £2899 - £3269 including UK flights
South Burma tour
We had a great time and enjoyed the individual attention which was able to be given as there were only 3 in the group. (more)Jill Davies
Visiting the golden rock Pagoda and mixing with local holiday was the most memorable part of the holiday (more)Elizabeth Roberts
From £2400 including UK flights
