This was a great tour showing all of the highlights of Yangon. Sim po was very informative and friendly and guided us through the best locations. There was a private car the whole time with AC too. Highly recommend if you want to see Yangon without stress.

This is by far one of the best tours I have ever done. My tour guide Yang (sp?) took his time to explain Yangon. He is so passionate about his city. Please support them if you are in Yangon. They are truly deserving of the 5 stars.

My guide Yan was extremely knowledgeable and very thorough with information about the country’s history. He was accommodating and helpful. I recommend for anyone to take this trip to Mynamar and explore the city with him.

I really enjoyed my private tour around ancient temples of Bagan thanks to Mr Zaw. Very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly tour leader. Transportation safe and smooth. Highly recommend 👌

My tour guide was exceptionally helpful, knowledgeable and very articulate.
