Burma holiday, highlights of Burma
An enjoyable tour. Would have liked an extra day in several of the areas - it felt a little rushed at times. (more)Elizabeth Treherne
To be honest - I loved all of it. However, we had a trip to Mount Popa by Bagan which was fantastic. I also loved the 2 cycling days we had in Bagan - this is by far the best way to view this amaizing sight. (more)Vered Hopkins
From £2356 - £2929 including UK flights
Burma tailor made holiday
The most memorable parts of the holiday were the temples at Bagan and charming Hsipaw and the local village visit and boat trip - tranquil, natural beauty...Excellent tour, very well organised. (more)Alice Bretherton
It was a wonderful holiday which I have been recommending to everyone I meet! The highlights were the elegant pink nuns we met along the way wielding a double handed saw to cut down some trees. The village family we visited, seeing their house and meeting their neighbours sharing tea with them all and trying on their national costumes. (more)Janette Gledhill
We loved our holiday. The mixture of culture, wildlife (particularly the birds at Inle lake)interesting places to stay and excellent street food was just what we needed. I travel a lot for work and this was just the contrast I needed. (more)Liz Ollier
From £1625 excluding flights
Small group holiday to Burma
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
The most memorable parts are hard to choose between the wonder of Shwedeagon Pagoda with all it's glittering gold, river journey down the Ayeyarrwady and first sight of Bagan, then cycling around it, relaxing time on Inle Lake, and visiting the botanic gardens in Pyin U-Lwin and the hills of Kalaw. (more)Janet Sutherland
Excellent....Each day was amazing with many highlights - the country is beautiful and the people are warm and welcoming - our tour guide was superb and the restaurants chosen provided a wide variety of very good food (more)Anonymous
From £2675 - £3095 including UK flights
Burma holidays, small group tour
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
Very enjoyable and a great group and guide...The Teak Buddhas at Ananda Paya temple profoundly affected me. (more)Yehudi Gordon
The trip on Inlay Lake was the most memorable because I had no previous mental image of this place and the complexity of life on and around the water. (more)Adrian WELCH
From £2295 - £3029 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 £1799 excluding 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 £2149 - £2549 including UK 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 £3195 excluding flights
Burma tailor made holiday, with beach option
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 £3159 including UK flights
South Burma tour
Memorable parts? Visiting the golden rock Pagoda and mixing with local holiday. Tips? Go with an open mind, it's a holiday for travellers not holiday makers. Local benefits? It benefitted local people because we used local hotels and visited local markets and ate with local people in their cafés. Overall rating? A great experience. (more)Elizabeth Roberts
From £2500 - £2700 including UK 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
