the local company used were great. The guide, Baba spoke excellent English and she was attentive and informative. Without doubt this was my best day trip and I cannot recommend them highly enough
We met our guide Popa with a driver at the hotel at 8am as advised. She was friendly, well spoken and informative. She had taken on board our request to see the U-Bein bridge which was magnificent. We saw gold leaf crafting, temples, stupas, the Palace, lacquer ware, various areas of Mandalay and its markets. Popa explained about the way of life for local people. We had a good lunch at a local restaurant. We were extremely lucky to see a 'coming of age' celebration which was very colourful. Finally, we watched the sunset from Mandalay Hill. We arrived back at the hotel tired but well informed.
