    Lwin was wonderfully accommodating guide. Her love and knowledge of her own country alongside her wish share this and accommodate the individual tourist’s interests, in what they wish to see or hear about, is a service that is hard to find nowadays. Because time was limited, Lwin kindly arranged to meet me off the bus in Mandalay and was in communication with the bus driver to make sure I was dropped off at the right place as he did not speak any English. I spent two half days with Lwin and her tuc tuc driver. She showed me the most beautiful palaces, monasteries, local crafts and different aspects of rural life. We were lucky to come across a novitiation ceremony. As a solo traveller I was reassured that if I needed, I knew Lwin was always there to help, for instance, she went out of her way to help arrange shared taxi rides for me when I wished to visit an old friend out of the city and made sure that I got to the airport in time to catch the plane. I highly recommend her and her tuc tuc services to anyone.

    My time in Mandalay was limited but Lwin managed to customised a 2-day itinerary for me that included all the key sights, including dropping me off at the airport on the second day which is a tremendous help because Mandalay airport is quite far from town.  She was full of knowledge and stories about the city and surrounding areas, and speaks excellent English.  I was very glad to have her as my guide and would strongly recommend her to anyone visiting Mandalay.  Thanks Lwin!

    When visiting Mandalay for work, I booked a tour with Lwin and it was great. She has a lot of knowledge and is very helpful. I really like the fact that she made a custom tour for me, so thank you Lwin!

    If you are reading this it's because you are looking for a guide in Mandalay.  I can only say that Lwin is the person you are looking for.  A great professional, who will take care of you,  knows Mandalay very well, helps in everything you might need and also is a very nice and funny girl. And she has had a lot of patience with all my photographic whims!

    My wife and I had  a great time with Lwin Lwin during our tour in and around Mandalay. She was a very nice guide, her English was good. The program was very well chosen and it felt like the time flew by.  

    Communication with Lwin before arrival was easy. We recommend Lwin for your trip.

    We had a really short stay in Bagan and decided to use Lwin's expertise to show us around. We couldn't have made a beter choice: not that she made that extra mile every time we requested or asked for something, she seemed to have read our minds and made best choices and changed plans for us on the fly. It was a lifetime trip for us and Lwin contributed to that on a large scale. We can only wholeheartedly reccommed Lwin and our only regret is that we didn't hire her while we spent time in Mandalay. Both she and the accompanying driver (whose name sadly escapes me), made this visit of Bagan unforgettable. Thank you both!

    Lwin was an awesome guide and made my trip to Mandalay memorable. She went out of her way to fulfill every request. Lwin was very quick at replying to emails making the planning process very easy. It was so much fun roaming around Mandalay with her. She was very accomadating to my last minute itinerary changes. Along with visiting the must-see sights, Lwin also accompanied me for some shopping and to the local markets. Thank you so much for a great trip.
