A Recent Review of this tour

Htay was so helpful and nice. He picked us up from the ship port, took us to the markets and all the historic sites, told us about the history of Yangon, and he is very knowledgeable. We really appreciated how easy going he was and how we adapted our full day tour as we went along during the day. We would totally recommend him for any group (he arranged for a car and drive for our group of 6) and would definitely use him again if we return to Yangon!
