Tour Reviews
  • Berit

    Zeya is highly recommandable for German speaking guidance through Myanmar as well as in English language. He exceeded our expectations in terms of knowledge, reliability and friendliness. 

  • Berit

    Zeya hat uns über 3 Tage in Yangon begleitet und hat ermöglicht, die Stadt in allen Facetten kennenzulernen. Zeya spricht und versteht hervorragend deutsch, u.a. weil er bereits in Deutschland und Europa war. Er hat seine Touren flexibel gemäß unseren Wünschen - und den Bedürfnissen der Kinder - angepasst. Für uns war es perfekt und wir können Zeya absolut weiterempfehlen. 

  • Seong

    We have been traveling in  Myanmar, struggling to understand this fascinating land, because of lack of fluent English speakers. We spent a day exploring Inle Lake with Mr. Aung Zeya, and could not be happier with the tour. He was professional, knowledgeable, and able to convey to us in fluent English all the challenges facing the Myanmar people, as well as the intricacies of all the interesting traditions. Additionally, he was really accommodating; we had to change the date of our tour, and he was able to flex with our schedule. He lives in Yangon, but leads tours in Inle Lake, Bagan and Mandalay, as well. I feel the private tour was well worth the money.
