An excellent day with a charming and informative guide - Min Soe. We were met at the port gates at the agreed time by Min Soe and his driver in a comfotable car with a/c. Min Soe suggested an itinerary and was happy to amend this to fit in with our requests. A fascinating and informative day, including some shopping, as requested, and a trip on a local train. We were very well cared for throughout and we were able to mix easily with the local people - they are so polite and friendly! Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. It was nice seeing you as well.

Exceptional 3 days! We knew so little about the country as well as Buddhist culture, religion and customs. And our very knowledgeable guide taught us so much. We visited pagodas and monastery as well as places where locals live and tried wonderful local cuisine. Felt totally immersed in their culture and learned and saw more than we thought possible. Min Soe is pleasant company and excellent guide, would highly recommend this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for a such beautiful feedback. It was great seeing you too.

This tour is fantastic. We learned much about the culture of the city and country from the tour guide, Min. He was very knowledgeable, Friendly, and thoughtful. He communicated to us in English very well. We feel he went out of his way to ensure our safety and for us to have fun. We enjoyed the places we visited but really enjoyed the experience on the train ride in the city. We enjoyed getting to know the downtown area on the walking tour.

Min Soe was an ideal tour guide. First of all, he was a lovely human being: kind, thoughtful, caring, helpful. Also, his English was excellent though he had a few charming pronunciations. Secondly, he was truly knowledgeable about all aspects of our exploration and shared countless interesting details. He was very willing to modify our itinerary in response to our specific requests. When we return to Myanmar, there is no other tour guide we will consider. My wife and I highly recommend him

Min Soe is an EXCELLENT guide. He planned a 12 day, 5 city tour of Myanmar for my husband & me. We traveled by private car, boat, & 3 domestic flights to the cities. He helped me find a hotel in each city that fit us. He made sure we saw everything on my wish list, plus other places. He's a kind, caring, informative guide. His planning took us to homes, villages, restaurants that a travel group could never get to. He made sure we were comfortable & happy along the way. I highly recommend him.

Min S made our first day in Yangon extra special! He patiently waited for us at our hotel because our flight was delayed. He showed us how the locals live by taking us on the train, through the markets, to a tea house and across the river to the fishing village of Dalah. Min S spoke excellent English and is a very caring, knowledgeable, capable guide. He looked after my 79 year old mother and I really well, our day was excellent. We could not have asked for a better experience and we highly recommend Min.

Min was very pleasant and flexible in designing a specific Yangon city tour for myself and my girlfriend. It was hugely helpful, and quite luxurious, to have an air-con vehicle waiting for us after each site we visited which made the day both comfortable and very efficient. Min was also great in providing recommendations for the balance of our time in Yangon. His English was good but not sure that we got the answers we were looking for every time, also a bit on the expensive side.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot, Mike. It was nice meeting you and your girlfriend. I am glad that you have a good time with my service. I was trying to help you for further information to do the Yangon second day tour. I am sorry that it seems as if tour sightseeing on it a bit expensive.

Our guide was Min Soe - very charming, knowledgeable, remarkably calm and measured for such a young man. We spent a full day in Yangon, in his company during which time we managed to cover all that we had hoped for the day, plus an invaluable insight into a good few areas we would never have thought of... and all at pace whereby we didn't work up more of a sweat than is inevitable in Yangon. We had arrived on Silver Shadow and chose to have our own guide - a smart move. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Traveling and touring with him brought to life the era and the historical events as they occurred through the years. We had lunch at the Monsoon (highly recommend).
