    In February 2018 Mr. Kaung Min Khant had very well organized for us a 2 days’ trip by car with a private driver for some nice excursions in the surroundings of Mandalay. The tour was composed according to our wishes. He is very friendly and polite and has excellent English language skills. We enjoyed very much to have met and communicate with him and to learn a bit about the Myanmar culture.

    Mr. Kaung Min Khant is a very helpful and reliable person and he can efficiently address individual requirements.

    We can highly recommend Mr. Kaung Min Khant as a perfect organizer and wish him all the best for the future. – Mingalabar -

    Kaung is a very confident capable young guide,and  within just  a few minutes of meeting him  i was impressed with his knowledge of all the sites in and around Mandalay. His English is excellent and i found that there were no problems with his communication skills at all.  He has such a pleasing kind manner about him  that it was a pleasure to spend the day with him. The passion he has for his job is pleasing to see and i have no hesitation in highly recommending him to anyone that is looking for a guide in Myanmar. I know that he enjoys meeting new people everyday and this shows in his attitude and friendly approach. He is very flexible to your own personable interests and goes out of his way to please everyone . Kaung started off as a guide and ended up as a friend who i would like to keep in touch with in the future. Book him and i am sure you will not be disapointed.

    We enjoyed every minute of our cycling tour with Kaung. He is very knowledgeable about history and culture with very good communication, and we enjoyed the conversations while visiting the villages, historical sites and attractions. He brought us very close to the daily life of locals and introduce us to good local food. Very accomodative to our needs and flexible to our interests. Good photographer too. Take good pictures of us during the tour. I highly recommend Kaung.
