We spent a wonderful two full days in/around Yangon with our guide Tom (Ye). My favorite experiences were 1) Visiting Shwedagon Pagoda in the evening and watching families worship as the lights came on - a truly magical night! 2) Meeting pilgrims from Mandalay while visiting Shwemawdaw Pagoda in Bago. With Tom as an interpreter, I was able to have a conversation, laugh with them, take selfies, and understand a bit about their journey. Tom made sure that our Myanmar experience was incredible!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for leaving me such a great review,Christy! Connecting with locals and travelers in a meaningful way is my priority as well. Your five-star review keeps my passion stronger to move forward. Please share your experience with me to your friends and family. Anyway, there are lots of places to visit in Myanmar such as Bagan, Mandalay, Inle. I arrange for these places too. Therefore, I am looking forward to serving you again, Christy! Regards, Htun(Tom)

Mr Ye Htun is an excellent guide, his English is perfect, and his knowledge of Yangon and Myanmar sites and history are superb. Htun is a very nice courteous person, and we would have no hesitation in recommending him. Whilst at the Shweedagon Pagoda, my wife was feeling the heat, and Htun very kindly arranged a wheelchair for her, and very carefully pushed her around this vast and beautiful Buddhist shrine and Pagoda complex. Also our driver Mr Jor was a safe and considerate driver.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for taking your time to write about your experience with me, Tony & Adele! I am so happy to know that you two enjoyed the tour and my goal is 100% traveler satisfaction and it sounds like I achieved the goal with you! I do let Mr Jor or Kyaw know about it as well. Surely, it will make his day! Please share your experiences with me to your lovely family and friends. I look forward to organising another wonderful trip in Myanmar for you! Regards, Htun
We came into Yangon Port for 2 1/2 days and Ye organised a tour including sightseeing in Yangon, flights to Bagan, a hot air balloon ride early morning and then visiting of many many temples and stupas in Bagan's Archeological Zone. I cannot emphasise enough how perfect everything was organised, how friendly, knowledgeable and professional he was. Even when we changed our plans to see a pagoda that wasn't on the original list he knew a lot of interesting and useful information. Thank you so much
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow, thank you so much for taking your time to leave me this wonderful review, Christian Monke! I am very happy to know that you enjoy the tour with me. I have figured out everything what makes my valued travelers happy and have a great moment during holiday. It was a great pleasure to have you as my travelers. I'd love you to have you back anytime, and please share your experience with me to your friends. There are lots of places to see in Myanmar as well. I'd love to see you again soon, Christian Monke!

We enjoyed our tour. There was a mix up with pick up at the port. We did not understand that we needed transport to the port gate which is quite away from where we disembarked at the ship. This is quite important. Having lunch at The Strand was a nice respite from the heat. Many Thanks!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for taking your the time to share your thoughts and feedback! I am very happy to know that you enjoyed the tour with me though there was a mix up with pick up at the port. Although i gave a message to meet at the entrance gate of the port to you earlier, i should have suggested details of meeting point that you need to take a free shuttle from your ship to entrance gate of port and it takes three minutes drive. However, I am also taking seriously for your suggestion to serve better! Thanks anyway!

Our guide Ye Htun Kyaw was knowledgable, punctual and friendly and spoke excellent English. He was willing to answer any questions, including about the country's political situation and the recent unrest in Rakhine State. The half-day Island Explorer's tour is an excellent way to sample authentic rural life in Myanmar just a 15 minute boat ride away from the big city of Yangon, especially if your time is limited. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your great review, Victor lerch! It gives me a passion to craft more inclusive tours which connect locals and travelers in a meaningful way. I am also very happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour with me! I will keep trying my best to provide better service, better programm. Please share your experience of the trip to your friends and children. I hope to welcome you again in Myanmar, Victor Lerch! All the best!

HTun was a great guide in facilitating our stay in Yangon and Bagan. He's especially considerate and mindful in arranging the itineraries as we've an 84 year old grandmother with us. He ensured our experience in Myanmar was smooth sailing from airport arrival to departure. He worked closely with airline staff members to ensure our grandma's wheelchair was timely delivered. With language barrier with their locals, he's there for us to ease communication.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for taking your precious time to write a review here, Lee. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour with me. Please share your experience with your friends who are thinking of visiting Myanmar. I would love to continue providing great service to awesome people like you, Lee. Thanks again!

Htun was a fantastic guide - really knowledgable, open, funny and with great english! Tour was run extremely professionally and had a brilliant itinerary with train ride, nunnery trip, markets, ferry ride and a long Trishaw ride with many stops in Dala! (candle making, spring roll, local celebration etc). He knows what is going on locally and will involve you in local's activities where can. Not rushed and slick car pick ups/transfers all day. Cannot recommend Htun and this tour highly enough!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for leaving a review, Karen! I actually had a really great time with you discussing lots of topics and learned a lot from you as well. I am very happy that you enjoyed the tour with me. It keeps my passion strong to perform better! Please share your expenerience with friends and family and i hope to see you again!! Regards, Htun

Htun is an excellent guide - excellent English, very friendly and reliable. The diversified itinerary gave us the opportunity to have a glimpse into local lives. The train tour was very special and a highlight. He also took some very good photos of me and my partner which made us very happy. We had a great time today and would recommend him to our friends.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for such great review, Joy! I am so happy to know that you enjoyed the tour with me.
