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.

Very good tour and very nice tour guide.
I was lucky that I was the only one that day, so i had a nice car, a driver and a tour guide for me only.
Both were very kind and I enjoyed my day in Yangon.
They were flexible to swap some point of interest to another one that i preferred.
I recommend it for the people that want to see many things within a day.

Yangon is a beautiful and magic place, but what made it al happen was our lovely tour guide Nandar... She went out if her way to show us the real life in the city, showing us markets, temples and people. Excellent English and very knowledgeable of her country's culture. Great driver too!

Our tour guide, Win Ko, was fantastic. He tailored the activities around what interested us, he was knowledgeable and attentive with excellent English. The tour itself is a great mix of things to see and do around Yangon and is a great way to learn about the culture. Our party of 6 were all happy to recommend this tour to others.
