    We booked a three-day trip with a private guide and a car with a driver at this agency. In and around Mandalay.

    The Toyota Alphard was a comfortable and big enough vehicle for the three of us, the driver and the guide. We agreed itinerary in advance, mainly on the basis of this agency's proposal. With some specialties such as our transport to Mandalay Airport.

    Our guide Chen was excellent. Very well informed about the history and present of visited places. We greatly appreciate that he showed us also local life, eg. at the market in Pyin Oo Lwin or took us to a restaurant for locals in Sagaing.

    Chen was kind and helpful. He found, on his own initiative, that our domestic flight was canceled and replaced by another company flight (locally specific). Or he took us personally to our train, found the right places, and agreed with the train guide to the location of our luggage (as the Burmese railways don't think much of the big luggage of passengers). In doing so, Chen was very tactful and courteous.

    It was great, thanks ...

    We have visited Mandalay in January 2018 with a group of 7.Joe was waiting for us at the airport, and guided us for 2 days. He was a very good guide, his English was very good. He cananswer all of our questions about the city, country, religion. The program was adapted to our request, coffee breaks, stops. Very flexible, but always the best advices. Joe was very patientand helpful. He recommended us a good restaurant for dinner, they found a photo lab on the way to the airport to prepare a paper photo for Thailnad visa.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'). They offered freecool water, umbrella. Thein Ko Oo came personally to the hotel to meet us on first evening. Communication with him before arrival was easy.All these services for a reasonable price. We highly recommend this company for your next Mandalay tour!
