- Punctual collection at the hotel. I was the only guest that day and was able to enjoy a private tour. - I recommend wearing trekking sandals or flip-flops as shoes and socks have to be taken off at almost all sights - For lunch we stopped in a restaurant in Sagging. The restaurant was visited by many tourists. The food was good and reasonably priced. (Pasta with vegetables and chicken strips and 2 papaya juices for just under $ 4) - I omitted the "Yadanar Semi" and "Bagaya Monastery" in Ava because the price for the horse-drawn carriage needed to get there with 15,000 kyat ($ 10) was exorbitantly high in my eyes. After consulting the guide, this was not a problem. The only small minus point, which is why there were no 5 stars: - My driver only spoke poor English. I was just unlucky. With "hands and feet" and simple questions, the communication worked.
We had an excellent tour guide, Mr Myo, that we arranged through Mekong cruises tours . This was a very full day, but so interesting. He was able to fit in some extra things like a market visit to a tea shop where we could buy the best Myanmar tea, a noodle factory, a school, a walk through a village where furniture was made and a Nunnery. This was all besides the main Saigaing pagodas, the horse cart ride through Ava and the U Bein Bridge at sunset. He also recommended other things that made our stay in Mandalay most pleasant.Highly recommended this tour to anyone visit myanmar
The tour was well put together, you can see a lot on that day. The driver was reliable and friendly. The information in the brochure received is very scarce, so it is advisable to have your own literature with you. I would book it again.
My tour guide Yen Lay was very helpful. He is knowledgeable and caring. I enjoy this tour very much as I managed to see so many things in one day. Highly recommended!!
The service, professionalism and proposed activities were incredible.
