    I once worked as a tour guide myself, and I know good guides, and Min Soe is one of them. He was professional, touching base with me by email before the day that we were to meet. Like clockwork, he was waiting for us at the hotel lobby at the appointed time. His English pronunciation is good -- unlike the pronunciation of Asiatic guides in other countries that I have experienced. Unlike other guides in Yangon, he graduated from Yangon University with a specialty in English and history (which is not a requirement to be a licensed guide in Myanmar). He started our tour by asking what, if any, sights we had already seen, to maximize the efficiency of our tour. We alternated between riding in his car (that had a separate driver), or walking, depending on the sights. We covered the main buildings near City Hall, and stopped at the delightful Tea House. We stopped at an Armenian Church (that seemed closed, but Min still managed our access). We visited some shops and a marketplace -- but there was no pressure by Min for us to purchase anything (usually guides get some kickback benefit when they steer there tourists to certain shops, but it was clear that Min had no financial stake in our purchases). For lunch, Min asked our preference, and we asked for a typical place that locals would eat at. His selection was fantastic, and there were no other tourists around. He took us on a ride on a commuter train, for us to get a feel of typical Yangon life. The highlight was showing us the Schwedagon Pagoda, a massive complex oozing with Buudhas, gold-plating and jewelry.
