We had a fabulous leader. Not only was the tourist leader very friendly, but he was also courteous and competent. Myanmar's personal visit was one of the best journeys my family and I have ever made. We' ve travelled a lot alone in Europe and have been on many small group travels to more expansive natives like India, Egypt, Vietnam and Africa, but this was our first personal trip and it was great.
It was fantastic and very competent and it was great to have a chauffeur at each of the four Myanmar locations. Inle and Bagan Sea were the highlight. Archeological temples in Bagan were above the summit - an unbelievable view. He was a leader of our company and therefore adjustable to our needs.
We had a great welcome supper at the Strand Hotel. While in Yangon we really did enjoy seeing the convent and the young friars (children), as well as the Shwedagon Pagoda. Enjoying the interactions with the Burmese nation - so cordial and inviting. Enjoy supper and lunches with locals, the accommodation is always amazing, the culinary evenings at the Strand Hotel in Yangon and Inle Lake View Resort, the temple in Bagan, the cruise by Inle Lake even the first morning it was watered, and my clothes got soaked the next toast.
