Started off on the wrong footing when tour guide did not confirm pick up time despite several attempts by the hotel to contact them 3 days prior to the tour. Up to the eve of the tour they were still uncontactable and we did not know if the tour was still on. They arrived at 8am on tour day and were informed by the hotel of their shortcoming on our behalf. We finally left for tour two and a half hours later as we saw no reason for us to rush since it was their mistake. Tour guide apologized profusely and told us that she was only informed the night before and had assumed somebody had already been in touch with us.
Although the tour started off badly, my husband and I enjoyed the tour very much as the guide Aye Aye was such a delightful and bubbly guide. She was friendly and warm and helpful and knows her stuff well. She went out of her way to bring us to a silk weaving factory when we mentioned it and explained patiently the process that was being done there.
Our tour guide, Joe, was excellent. He was charming, soft spoken, attentive to our interests, and made the day a wonderful experience. The tour was fascinating and we learned a great deal. More importantly, we felt like we were briefly immersed in Burmese culture. I highly recommend this tour.
