The driver was 1/2 hr early. The drive was as comfortable as could be expected on bumpy roads. The driver tried to be as informative as possible with his broken English. Had a comfort break halfway and fees were paid on our behalf. All in all a pleasant experience when travelling in the unknown.
The car arrived early, which was great. The driver was very courteous and friendly. The car was clean.
We were able to stop whenever we needed to.
We did think, that at times, some of the drivers maneuvers were a bit risky, but perhaps that is just how the traffic flows here?
The driver was early and waiting for us. He was an excellent driver, getting us quickly through traffic jams. His English was better than expected. He was kind and thoughtful. Two hours into the trip, he asked if we needed a toilet. He stopped whenever we wanted a photo We couldn’t have asked for a better way to get to Bagan
This was the easiest and as far as I know the cheapest way to travel between the two towns (other than the local bus) the bus apparently keeps stopping. I was travelling with my husband and mother so the car seemed the best option. In general transport is expensive in Mandalay bs bagan compared to the cost of food/accommodation etc. It took about 4 hours each way. The driver we had was good as well. The car was very bouncy which made it a bit of a difficult journey for my mum because she has a back issue. I had emailed them about the pick up time and they responded promptly and the driver was on time at the correct location
The driver arrived at the hotel 15 minutes before our scheduled pick-up time. He was polite, courteous, and safe but still maintained a reasonable speed throughout the 4-hour drive. He spoke and understood minimal English, but enough for us to communicate the essentials like stops for drinks and toilette breaks. The car was clean and fairly comfortable for the long drive. I've checked with a few different agencies, and Viator's fare is the best for a private car. The booking and payment process was easy, and no risk. This is the best way to get from Mandalay to Bagan.
Victor was the only company I could find to arrange a taxi direct from the airport. The alternative was to go to Mandalay and catch a bus which was a 1+6 hour journey. The driver was waiting for us at the airport.
