We intend to offer tailor-made trips to our clients, as we don’t want to subject our clients to a rigid itinerary or timetable - we want to give them exactly what they want! According to this philosophy, our catalogue is rather flexible in order to enable our clients to organize their own tours.

We offer a basic program that includes visits to the major sights of the country. Of course, even this basic program is not compulsory but only a proposal: If you want to replace a flight with a railway trip or have an additional day of sightseeing in Bagan - no problem, just let us know your requirements! You can add optional tours to our basic program or do them separately. Duration and program are completely at your disposal - we will be glad to give you all the assistance you need...


PROGRAM ELEMENTS (Valid until May 2017):

-

Prices: The prices of our tours are generally depending on means of transport and standard of hotels. Generally, air transport is more expensive than road or railway travel and of course there are also the usual differences in the hotels' standards. Hotels in areas off the beaten track can be amazingly expensive in some cases.

-

Food: Generally, our tours include breakfast only as most of our clients seem to prefer to take the food supply into their own hands. However, should you want to include meals (full board or half board) into your program we can of course arrange that, too.

-

Hotels: Our clients can choose between luxury hotels (only in Yangon, Bagan and Mandalay) and middle class hotels. All our contract hotels (that includes middle class hotels) meet minimum requirements regarding cleanliness and comfort (all rooms are usually air-conditioned with attached bathroom). Hotels in outlying areas sometimes might not meet our minimum standards; in this case you can be assured that we will always book the best available hotel for you. We will be happy to mail you a list of our partner hotels on request.

-

Guided tours:
We offer two kinds of guided tours: with ‘throughout guide’ or with ‘station guide’. The former one will pick you up at Yangon airport, accompany you throughout the trip and put you on the airplane/other transport again after your tour - except if you want to add beach holidays: in this case the ‘throughout guide’ usually is not coming along - except, you ask for it! A station guide, on the other hand, will wait for you at your respective destinations, guide you there and after that put you on a plane/other transport to your next destination. We offer ‘throughout guides’ with skills in the following languages: German, French, Italian, Spanish - and English of course. ‘Station guides’ usually speak English.

Of course a ‘throughout guide’ is more expensive than a station guide as you’ll have to pay for his/her flight fares as well as accommodation even though the costs are considerably lower than for a tourist due to special tariffs.

Our prices are calculated with ‘station guides’. If you want to hire a ‘throughout guide’ there will be additional costs: count on about 180 USD (total) for our standard tour (10 days/9 nights). ‘Throughout guides’ as well as ‘station guides’ will help you to find suitable restaurants, too.

Finally, you can of course opt for a tour without local guide too!

Transports:
Car rental prices for saloon cars and vans have eased a bit due to the new, liberal import regulations in Myanmar. However, cars still tend to be more expensive than in neighbouring countries.
