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

Small group holiday to Burma
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
Burma is such a fabulous country to visit - our itinerary included one or more highlights every day. The crowning glory of our tour was our guide Po. He looked after our group of six as if we were family. (more)Stephanie Diggon
It was all new and exciting for that reason very heart warming to see what is flourishing in Myanmar and also fearful that some not such good things come with the advent of more tourism. Our trip to Pagan and Inle Lake are the highlights for me. (more)Jane Edington
From 2925 - 3195 including UK flights
Burma cultural holiday
A great range of activities, lots of variation every day, wonderful people who are so hospitable and always smiling!! A real holiday and adventure..... (more)Chris Haywood
Our guide was particularly good, he had a vast knowledge of the country, Buddhism etc. (more)susan harris
Going on public transport was very interesting and the people are so lovely and friendly and helpful. (more)Christine Sullivan
From 1299 - 1499 excluding 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 2419 - 2799 including UK flights
Burma highlights tour
Memorable parts? 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. Tips? Limit your luggage. Laundry offered half way through. No need for 'smart' clothes. Wifi much more widely available than guidebooks or trip notes suggest. Local benefits? It benefited local people to the extent that we stayed in small private hotels, ate in local restauranats and bought souvenirs from... (more)Andy Jackson
From 2099 - 2499 including UK 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

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 1499 - 1850 excluding flights
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 4895 including UK flights
Burma tour, small group
Memorable parts? There were so many!...riding ebikes in Bagan, boat trips to villages in Inle Lake, the beautiful beach at Ngwesaung. Tips? The best time to visit is February, March and early April. It's hot but not crowded. Local benefits? Yes, we gave a cooler to a vendor to cool her drinks, used local transportation when possible benefiting the local taxis. Overall rating? I would give it a 4. Burma is just now beginning to open up to the west and tourism. Great... (more)Patricia (Pat) Ruble
From 2530 - 2630 excluding 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 2799 - 3249 including UK flights
Burma sailing holiday, the Mergui archipelago
Memorable parts? Sailing amongst beautiful Islands Tips? Take lots of sun cream and also any old shirts shorts etc to give to Moekan villagers and seas gypsies. Local benefits? We visited a local village and were able to buy things in the village so bringing some extra income to them. Overall rating? A beautiful relaxing trip. (more)Fiona Bardsley
From 1380 excluding flights
