    Ei was super friendly and helpful! Not only the tour covered most of the famous spots in Bagan but also we went for tea and snacks on some local tea house and food stalls. During the tour, Ei explained about the culture, history and meaning of many statues in pagodas. She can basically answer every of our questions!

    There are not enough words to describe my experience with Ei Ei. I’ve traveled to over 30 different countries and have never encountered a guide as exceptional as Ei. She accompanied me (a solo traveler) over a 10 day journey through Mandalay, Bagan, Inle Lake, and Yangon. She curated a custom itinerary for me through each of the cities and really helped me to see the country through her eyes. Ei took me to places that are not on maps or travel blogs. She introduced me to her family / friends and even took me to her home. She explained the history of her country and her vision its future. She taught me to travel as a local (e-bikes, buses, taxis) and introduced me to a variety of local foods (keeping my vegetarian diet in mind). She took me to countless temples, explained the Buddhist rituals, and taught me how to pray and meditate. She bargained for me in the markets and critiqued my clothing purchases. She revealed her hidden talent as a photographer and helped to capture breathtaking visuals for me to remember my trip (and increase my Instagram followers). Even when she was not feeling well, she continued with our plans per schedule so that I wouldn’t miss anything. Ei has an inner joy and resilience that cuts through the country’s complicated past and unstable present. Everything that she is doing for the orphans, for the community, for the people, and for the country is so commendable. Ei took care of me as if I was her own brother and I will never forget that. I will always cherish my visit to Myanmar and a major part of my positive experience is due to Ei's warm hospitality. I hope that Ei continues to always laugh and inspire people.

    Do not miss the opportunity to meet Ei you’re in Bagan. I am going to tell all my friends about her! JEZUBA EI!!!

  • Yan Kun

    Ei is absolutely awesome. She is a brilliant and knowledgeable tour guide. She is fluent in English and she is always full of energy. You can honestly tell she grows up among these pagodas because she knows everything about Bagan, every corner every mural. She can even advise you those hidden picturesque spots to take awesome photos. Her enthusiasm and hospitality has been the highlight of our trip in Bagan. Highly recommended

  • Amberly

    I have done considerable travels in my life but never have I been guided quite like this. Ei Ei is patient, flexible and highly attentive. She structured our itinerary so that we would see all the highlights and more of Bagan and Myanmar (traveling with us and organizing all the arrangements), and painstakingly posed and positioned us for the best photos I have ever had taken of me in my life. I am profoundly grateful to Ei Ei for an experience of a lifetime and sharing her beautiful country with me in such a genuine and down to earth manner. I loved her stories in the temples we visited and her knowledge was exceptional. I cannot recommend her highly enough!!

  • Ichrio

    It was wonderful experience with her. Ei has great knowledge about history of Mandalay and Bagan, Pagodas and Buddhism. I really enjoyed following her guidance and also enjoyed the conversations. It is very oblivious that she is the No1 guide in the region.

  • Takaya

    We spent greatly special time with her excellent guide. Actually, her English is quite fluent and easy to understand. In addition, she know so much about  the history, the deep meaning of heritage and interesting story of Bagan.

    Thank you very much and I really want to ask her another guide in the near future.

  • Bee kian

    Ei is very friendly and knowledgeable about Bagan. She is able to introduce places and local food that allow you to have better appreciation of local lifestyle. She will also show you where’s the best spot to take photos! 

  • Jan

    This was a different trip I think then those that Ei Ei is used to. I needed a translator (instead of a tour guide) so that I could travel through Myanmar and see the beautiful countryside. Ei Ei is very good at this job, enabling me to communicate with the driver of the vehicle and with the people we meet on the way. I can recommend her and I won’t hesitate to ask her again for any future trips.

  • sean

    Bagan holding 2000 temples u might think its hard to ensure u see the best it offers without rushing around, but with Ei it was straight forward and relaxing. we had a day tour and she was happy for us to go at a relaxed pace. no racing around to cram everything in.  saw many highlights with the added bonus  of Ei giving us plenty of history and background to what we were viewing. really made the experience that much better. putting a story to each place we went. She was prompt and eager to go once we  met, she has a real enthusiasm for her home which is wonderful! We had a great time! highly recommend. if u fancy some local delicious burmese food make sure to ask Ei! and she will be more than happy to be your photographer! 

  • Guilherme

    Me and my wife had a great time with Ei Ei during our tour in Bagan. Highly recommended.

  • Wai Peng

    Ei Ei is a great guide.. She is very cheerful, punctual and she has  incredible knowledge about the places we visited :) I enjoyed my first solo trip very much because of her well-planned schedule .. highly recommended :)

  • Abhinav

    Ei Ei Nwe was very punctual and friendly.  She got her own ebike and took me around on it making it very convinient, as I was a solo traveller. She took me for the sunrise to a pagoda but it was very crowded. So she quickly changed the plan and took me to another secret pagoda where there was no one else. I got very good shots. We had a lovely local lunch in one of the roadside stalls. Highly recommended

  • Vinona

    Ei Ei Nwe has an incredible knowledge not only about Bagan and the pagodas here, but also about the whole country, its history and culture. She shared so many interesting stories with us - keep on going! 

  • Laura

    I couldn't have asked for a better guide! She was extremely knowlegable about the local history and Buddhism and I came away having learnt a lot.  She's also a lot of fun and I very much enjoyed hanging out with her for the morning!

  • Claire Mata

    Me, my best friend and sister went to Bagan for a day, we are from the Philippines and it’s our first time to visit Myanmar. I was overwhelmed with how beautiful the pagodas are. Ei fetched us at the bus station earlier than the meet up time, she was so courteous, kind-hearted, friendly, smart and hospitable. She brought us to a good restaurant and also to a ceremony (putting of an umbrella to a pagoda). She is a well-versed guide and would definitely come back and visit other parts of Myanmar with her as my guide. Hope to see you again soon, Ei Ei! ❤️

  • Tâm Bình An

    We had a wonderful trip to Bagan, Inle lake, Mandalay with Ei Love. She is excellent. Speaks English fluently too.

    She has knowledge about Myanmar. Thanks you very Ei Love. See you next trips in Myanmar

  • udo

    four fantastics days with Ei, best guide we had in Myanmar

  • Cristiano

    We couldn't chose a better guide. Ei speaks a very good English, she has knowledge about Myanmar history and she has been patient with all our requests. She kindly invited to her family house to have a typical Burmese dinner, but unfortunately we haven't able to attend due personal issue. We highly recommend Ei.. Chris & Cris 

  • Pranesh

  • gabor.karsay

    We have visited Bagan in December 2017 with a group of 7.Ei was waiting for us at the airport, and guided us for 2 days (personally only for one day, the second day one of her colleagues). She was a very nice guide, her English was very good. The program was very flexible adapted to our request, coffee breaks, stops. She recommend us a very good restaurant for lunch. Ei was very patientand helpful. Now she is young, full of energy, has a lot of projects. Certainly she will be a very important person in Bagan tourism development in the next years.

    She offered us a new year’s eve dinner in her new restaurant, with her family. She offered us very tasty local meals, and even some vine (very uncommon in that region). We will remember for long time this dinner.

    The vanwas a nearly new one, in verygood condition (even according toEuropean standards), comfortable,always clean.The driver cleaned it during every stop (every pagoda, sometimestwice in 30').Communication with Ei before arrival was easy.All these services for a reasonable price. We highly recommend Ei Ei for your next Bagan tour!
