I booked myself into a 2 day trip to the golden rock which I can only highly recommend, especially my guide Han. On the journey we visited a few places such as a monastry and Bago. Han took care of everything and explained a lot about the culture, history. I would recommend to book Mountain Top Hotel because of the location (fully booked at the time). Coming back to the agency and Han I can only say that they are trustable and it's worthwhile organising through them.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Sibylle much appreciated!

I only had one day to tour Yangon and was amazed at how much of the city I got to see, and not just tourist sites! Han created a great itinerary which really let me see the city and people... We ate a restaurant that didn't have 10 tour busses in parking lot...took the train around part of the city (unbelievable experience), we crossed the river on the ferry and took a bicycle rickshaw exploration tour of the island that was really great...I would highly recommend his tour!
informative and highly interesting and entertaining. Thanks Han for a great day!

Han picked us up from our cruise ship in a lovely a/c car with driver. A very informative tour of history and culture set amidst the mayhem and sheer joy of the New Year Water Festival! We were struck by Han's explanations of Buddhism and the people and faith in the stunning Shwedagon Pagoda and The Reclining Buddha. We enjoyed a good local meal in setting of Old Rangoon Tea House. Han judged our activities perfectly for the heat and humidity of the day! Would thoroughly recommend any tour with Han!

The was a great introduction to Yangon and EXACTLY what we wanted. It is not a strenuous tour and perfect if you are new to town. We touched on the many highlights including walking tour of downtown, a visit to a tea shop, a peak into the Strand Hotel, Shwedagon Paya, a GREAT lunch, the Recling Buddha,a ride on the famous Circle train and most importantly answering our questions. Greatly appreciated the pickup and drop off aspect. Would absolutely recommend Han.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Carrie for your compliment. It was a pleasure to meet you. Thanks again for being positive. Wish you all luck.

I can only give Han and the tour my warmest recommendations! Han was very informative and very good at english. He was also quite flexible about what we could do during the day. I learned a whole lot about Myanmar and it's Rich history. I also learned a lot about buddhism. Don't hesitate - just book the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Julie for your feedback. I was so happy to meet such an incredible people like you. Wish you all luck.
Being a tour guide is all about personable & outgoing, strong communication skills, punctuality and knowledgeable. Han has it all! He is the most pleasant guide that both my husband and I ever met and we are thankful to have him with us over the 6 days journey. Never a dull moment with Han. He planned it all and we enjoyed every places and food in the itinerary. He was simply amazing and I strongly encourage any guest who read this review to engage Han. And, I am glad I did after reading past reviews :)

Han was brilliant on our tour around Yangon. It was our first trip and his presentations were pitched just right for newcomers to Yangon. He was also happy to deviate and take us along on a trip out of Town to a place where a relative left many years back. Very informative and enjoyable, and helped us with making car arrangements for a further trip out of Yangon.
My Daddy and I had a wonderful trip to Dala with Han! He was very kind, caring and knowledgeable. He keen to answer our questions. The day was planned very well and very non touristy! I love Myanmar!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Mai, and Jerry for booking my tour through toursbylocals. It is great to meet you and to be a guide for you. You guys are awesome! Please keep it up! Hope to see you in future All the best Han

A very good tour by HAN with the driver. Friendly and helpful. Yangoon is a bustling city in some disrepair. We saw many public buildings from the British era. Visited the Scott Market, central square, railway station, .... Comfortable car. we are satisfied that we saw the main places and had their significance explained to us.
Han is the perfect guide, his English is excellent and he is very considerate of his clients needs. As we had not visited Myanmar previously he maximised our time to get the most out of our short stay. I would highly recommend Han to fellow travellers.

Han provided us with a very well organised tour. He enabled us to experience the different areas of Yangon. Riding the railway, markets as well as local sightseeing. Then later the ferry to Dala and the water carriers, is something we will always remember. The travel to Golden Rock just amazing and again very well organised. We also appreciated the thoughtfulness, and kindness. We would recommend Han unreservedly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Dale,sue,Don and Jacky .. You are all wonderful people from Newzealand Wish you all Good luck and stay healthy Han
Very nice guide, he knows his city very well and gave me a lot of interesting informations about Buddhism when we visited the pagodas. Thank you

I reached out to Han based on the good ratings he already received and we were not disappointed! We only had half day in Yangon so we wanted to have a bespoke private tour to see the most we can. The tour Han designed for us was just right and he took us to a local food hall for lunch which was amazing. Han is knowledgeable about the history of Myanmar and various peculiar things about this country. I would recommend Han to anyone who wants to visit Myanmar.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much All the best
Very good experience with Han, our great guide. He welcomeed us at Airport and give us good advices during the tour. We choose together the trip Schedule ad he make some adds to make our trip more enjoyable. We really had a great experience in Myanmar.
7 hours idividually tailored tour with a well informed guide!

Han provided an excellent tour, probably the most impressive thing was seeing the adult English language class. We had no idea that so many people were seeking to improve their skills. Trip to Dala was great too.
Jose H. MartinezMexico
Very kind and instructed guide, but Yangon isn't worth it
We took this tour with Han- it was truly wonderful. He is knowledgeable about Yangon and Myanmar. He made our time with him such fun and we came away feeling as though we had learnt something. The rail trip was an experience not to miss and being with Han made it easy! Dala was incredible, shocking, humbling and a trip I will never forget. If you get the chance to tour with Han- do so. You won't regret it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you

We had 2 excellent days with Han in Yangon, and we left feeling we really got to understand the city. Firstly, Han was always punctual, he was very knowledgable, and he had a good sense of humour. His English is perfect. We loved it when we used public transport and visited areas off the beaten track- a highlight for my teacher wife was attending a local English class. We rode on trishaws, visited an out of the way local market, and saw all the regular highlights. Highly recommend Han!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Frans I got another Happy travelers

Han is a very responsible and friendly person. He helped a lot in our journey. He answered my questions before the trip and helped my mother to find the place she lived when she was young. Han is absolutely the tour guide i recommended to you if you are planning to Yangon.
Han is a knowledgeable and friendly guide. We felt very comfortable with him leading us and along the way we discussed many aspects of life in Myanmar and Yangon. He was very responsive to our wishes and modified the tour without hesitation when we asked. We thoroughly recommend Han as an competent and knowledgeable guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Happy Travelers from Canada:)

We used Han for a two day trip to Myanmar. He must've thought we were crazy but he managed to show us Yangon and Bagan in our 2 days. It was a whirlwind but we saw everything we wanted to see and he graciously shared his culture with us. He arranged our interior flights, our transportation , recommended our hotels, and the food that we could eat. It was all great. We will never forget climbing to the top of the temple in Began to watch the sunset. We highly reccomrnd Han!!
