Our guide was great and told us a lot. But it was a bit confusing at the beginning when we realised that the tour was not the same as in the program. No teahouse or Museum. But instead we went to see one of the big Budda statues. We had a car that drove us around all the time which was convenient.

Really good tour. Fascinating place learning about different Buddhist beliefs. Well worth a trip.

I was the only person on the trip. Once the guide was located, had a wonderful afternoon seeing the old colonial buildings, visiting Scotts Market but the highlight was a visit to Aung San museum, not available on many tours.

Con: the guide should be more easy to identify- City hall is a very busy place with buses, and very few people who speak English. The red t-shirt is not easy to spot. Requires a flag to stand out in the crowds, but once found had a good afternoon.

This was not a good experience. Our instructions were to wait outside City Hall opposite Sule pasgoda at least ten minutes before 12.30. So we waited there in broiling sun for an hour before giving up aand returning to our hotel. When I rang they said we should have been waiting somewhere else and implied it was our fault! Anyway they sent a car driver and took us to the museum which was pretty small but very interesting, then went to the lake where we walked around a bit - not much information goven though. We decidede to forgo the Shwedagon as we had been ourselves the evening before. They did offer to take us to a different pagoda but wed had enough so they took us back to the hotel. Disappointing!

The only two things good about this trip was (1) Our guide Kaye and (2) the beautiful Pagoda. I have always used Viator in my other trips but this is the first time that I've experienced the worst service. First of all, the tour promised a coach, but from the meeting place, our guide had to hire two cabs to bring us to the first spot - the Bogyoke Museum - and it was raining. From Bogyoke Museum, we had to travel by foot to Shwedagon Pagoda, what is supposed to be a 5 minute ride turned out to be a 20 minute walk - again in the rain - to the Pagoda. We didn't expect this kind of service from Viator. We were all soaking wet by the time we were in the Pagoda. THe only thing that saved the day was our guide who was very good.
