The city tour was conducted by Khiri Travel with the wonderful guide, Cherry. The comfortable car and driver picked us up right next to the ship gangway at 7am.The early start was fabulous because traffic wasnt so busy for the long drive into the city and also back after the tour. First stop was the Shwedagon Pagoda instead of the Sule Pagoda, a thoughtful variation from the published itinerary so we could see it in the best light. This was the pagoda we wanted to see. Cherry had excellent English and was really knowledgeable. We were the only passengers on this tour. The rest of the tour covered all the sights we wanted to see. The restaurant for lunch was a very high standard and a most enjoyable and we were pleased to enjoy the company of our guide during lunch. This tour has been a highlight shore excursion on our cruise helped by the the good communication from Khiri Travel and the personalised service with Cherry and driver. Expectations were exceeded.

Our guide Tun Nyi was the greatest. He speaks amazing english and is very knowledgeable and answers all our questions. My sister didnt expect this tour to be private but we are very thankful it is because we were able to take our time on every stop and the whole day tour was done on our own pace. The lunch served was also amazing. I highly recommend this tour and request Tun Nyi as your guide. He's amazing!

Fabulous tour- the railway journey alone was worth the money. Our guide Tet was brilliant- a mix of knowledge, wisdom and humour. I'd rate this as one of the best city tours I've ever been on.
