Tour Reviews
  • Nan

    He was my guide, body guard, interpreter, planner, driver, and good friend.

  • Susan

    An excellent tour guide.  We were lucky enough to have Tony for a couple of days with us in Yangon  He had two very good competent drivers to negotiate the horrendous traffic. 

    Tony’s English was  very good. He was very knowledgeable. He didn’t talk incessantly  as other guides we’ve had have done.,  which was a relief. He pointed out what needs to be pointed out and when we were touring on foot he ensured we saw everything that we needed to and had all the facts & history at his his fingertips   

    Would thoroughly recommend

    Good English,  reliable and flexible are the qualities I look for in a guide. Tony has all 3, I have used his services  on 3 of my trips  to Myanmar he goes the extra mile always. Highly recommended.

    Mr. Shwe was very helpful and acommodate us everything. I went to myanmar last year, rent a car in yangoon and bagan with him. He bring us to saw beautiful yangoon and bagan with his driver and good food too. And I recommend him to your guide when you go to myanmar.

  • Nohan

    I visited Myanmar in the end of 2016, on Dec 2016. I was in a group of 5 friends from Indonesia. We rented a car from Mr Shwe, in yangoon and bagan. He was very helpful. When we arrived at Yangoon, he's already been at airport waiting us, so it made us not worrying about time. He helped us to buy simcard for our phone. We had no itinerary at the time, and Mr Shwe gave us recommendation of what we expected in Myanmar. He also provided a good driver. The driver could bring us to the best foods in Myanmar. Mr Shwe has given us an unforgettable trip in Myanmar.

    5 stars for you Mr. Shwe, with all of your services and hospitality (and also being master Myanmar's wikipedia. Hehehe), i enjoyed Myanmar so much. Mr Shwe did not mind to follow our spontaneous activity or unplanned route. He accommodate it and also give best advise so we can be more adventurous.

    I have known Hla since 2004 and used him as my guide as well as recommended to many friends over the years.  He is very well experienced and can make customised arrangements for you at prices that meet your preferred budget.  He is friendly, sincere and always punctual.  In a country like Myanmar where things are always iuncertain in terms of - politics, infrastructure, corruption, weather.  Hla is the kind of guide you want to have at your side - as he will ensure you feel secure, safe and comfortable.

  • Rodrigo

    I went to Myanmar in 2015 and hired Tony as my guide. He was awesome and helped me with everything during my stay. I strongly recommend him for any type of trip all over Myanmar.

  • Boris
