All About this Tour

After five decades of complete seclusion, Burma (also known as Myanmar) is new to the world’s stage as a tourist destination. A culturally rich country, there is much still unexplored by the average tourist, making this Burma tour ideally designed to excite the adventurous. The unspoiled hill tribe villages, peaceful colonial towns, and bustling cities do share one thing in common though; they’re home to a nation of friendly, welcoming people.

Reviews

Probably one of the best ways to learn about and experience an unfamiliar country and culture.

Michael JakemanMarch 2018

Our guide, Thein, was superb. He was incredibly knowledgeable about Myanmar and very attentive to all of us on the trip, to make sure it was a good experience for the fastest and the slowest rider.

Thein was an extraordinary guide. I rated him as excellent in all aspects. In terms of the activities, a visit to a family paper making shop and the dinner with the family thereafter was a highlight, as well as some of the stops at small family businesses, like sugarcane processing.

The guide and driver were exceptional. They made every effort to make our holiday enjoyable, spent a lot of time showing and explaining Myanmar culture and history and made the holiday very special.
