A cultural trip that exceeded expectations

Timothy James Stockert — May 2016
(Review obtained from Tour Operator)

The trip through Myanmar exceeded our expectations. Biking through the countryside was an amazing way to see this country and to experience the people, culture, food, language, etc. Our guide, Toe Toe, and his supports were also incredible and helped us understand everything that we were seeing and experiencing. We loved the fact that we got to experience such diverse parts of the country from Mandalay and Bagan to Inle Lake and Yangon. We also enjoyed the combination of biking, kayaking, and site seeing and were happy that we decided to do a longer tour (8 day/7 nights) through the country. Anything less and I think we would have missed a lot of the beauty of this country. As one of the trip members said, this trip was like "drinking out of a culture firehose." It was an intense and amazing culture experience. Everything was great about this trip including our guides. We are very please with the trip and would definitely recommend it to others. The only thing that was difficult at times was the short amount of time that we spent in each city and the constant packing and re-packing. We liked the fact that we spent 2 nights in Bagan and Inle Lake and would recommend that other participants do the same thing on a similar tour and schedule in "down-time." Having a few nights in one location with a little bit of downtime makes it easier to get back on the bike the next day.

Stimulates the senses

Biking is a great way of touring. It slows you down and stimulates all your senses while still allowing you to cover some real miles. Plus you get so much more personal interaction with the locals. All good stuff!

Did not disappoint!

This trip was extraordinary! Zaw Zaw and his wonderful team worked so hard to deliver a spectacular trip to us. They did not disappoint - it was fantastic! Myanmar is an amazing country and there is no better way to experience it than on a bike. I felt we really saw the culture, country and the people. I would highly recommend this trip! The guides that looked after us were phenomenal. They were incredibly kind and conscientious. They were very knowledgeable and really delivered a unique experience. I was so impressed with this team! First rate! Can't say enough about how well they looked after us.
