We were delighted by getting to know a little bit of Bagan: market, temples and traditions. Our guide (Nwe Ni Win) was very kind and savvy. She answered all of our questions and took the time to explain everything to ua. Moreover she showed us how people in Bagan used to live and how they have been changing over the time by personal experiences. Plus we ate in a really good traditional place!

Our guide Fr. Ni and driver earn top marks. The beauty of the country was brought closer to us in a polite and reserved manner. The information was told in the correct dosage and special requests were catered for. Perfect English rounded the whole thing off. We recommend .
