    A wonderful trip. Our excellent and very friendly guide was Moe Hein showed us the beauty of Bagan including some hidden treasures and could answer each and every question in a very professional way. Couldn’t have been better!

    We would highly recommend this tour, our tour guide Aung and driver Mr Win truly treated us to the best of Bagan. Aung’s knowledge of Bagan’s history, cultures and religions was impressive: he was able to answer every question we had and engaged us with his commentary. Additional temples were added to the tour, and the bus we traveled in between sites was clean, comfortable and air conditioned. Lunch at a local restaurant was delicious and included in the tour price. The restaurant staff adapted the set menu to our dietary requirements (vegetarian and peanut allergy) and were extremely welcoming. Part of our afternoon tour included a fascinating visit to a lacquerware workshop to see how it is made, with no pressure to visit the shop/display room. The tour ended with a beautiful sunset from a small hill, watching the sun disappear behind the temples- breathtaking! Aung was a fantastic guide, we truly enjoyed his company and his expertise.

    We couldn’t recommend this tour more highly. We were pleasantly surprised to find that our private tour was indeed private, with just the three of us. This meant that we were able to fully take advantage of Aung’s knowledge and expertise of Bagan’s culture, religion and history. His extensive knowledge of the temples and those who built them was extremely impressive, Aung was able to answer every question we had and even shared with us his experiences as a former monk. He was also happy to help us with our group photos and added additional temples to the tour to ensure that our itinerary did not miss a single opportunity to experience the beauty of Bagan. Halfway through our itinerary we stopped for lunch at the Teak House (the food was included in the tour price) for a delicious meal with a set menu (tailored to our dietary needs). Part of our afternoon activities involved a visit to a local lacquerware workshop (Mya Thit Sar lacquerware handicraft work shop) to see local artisans at work and learn the complex and lengthy processes involved in making it. After watching the sunset over the temples we returned to our hotel feeling that Aung had shown us the very best of Bagan. A fantastic day and a brilliant guide.

    Our guide was very knowledgeable and was great with facts and telling us stories about the places we met. However his attitude was rather exhausting and we did not really connect on a personal level. He was very fixated on his idea of a tour and not very empathic. As an example: while visiting a laquerware production, one of the local girls explained the production process to us. Our guide kept interrupting her with meaningless corrections in pronounciation, which really interrupted the presentation and made the girl feel uncomfortable. We ended the tour early on our wish. Would not recommend this specific tourguide.

    I cannot imagine a better way to visit Bagan. We did not only visit the temples, but also had a chance to see how the locals live. Our guide Wunna Aung was truly exceptional: He succeeded in sharing with us this vast knowledge of the history of the area and of the many interesting details to be found in the pagodas. I would strongly recommend him to anything thinking of taking a tour of Bagan.

    In Bagan, the Shwezigan Pagoda,The Ananda Temple, Dhamayangyi Temple and Gubyawkygi Temple must be seen. A guide is a must to understand the history. Another great place to visit is the Lacquer Workshop. The products are excellent but fairly expensive. It is worth the cost.

    La guía que tuve fue una magnífica persona, muy preparada y muy interesada en prestar su servicio, muy profesional, amable, de buen trato y esforzada

    Finally, we visited ancient pagodas in Bagan! For our short trip, we absolutely needed efficient (but not hectic) guided tour to cover essentials and we believe we made the right choice (although shopping activities were not in our list). Our guide Wunna was an attentive and knowledgeable, pleased us with his good talk about historical/mythical events. Driver Ye Zawq was a kind and calm gentleman. Also seeing several review of the tour operated by Tour East Myanmar, I should say we highly recommend the tour though it depends on the engaged guide. Thank you!

    Ah 60km/hora entre poeiras nativos e gados, visitamos algumas das milhares de pagodas do século 13, acredito ser o meio mais interessante de visita-las em Bagan.

    Après avoir visité le site d'Angkor en 2018 ,nous avons passé quatre nuits à Bagan en novembre 2019.Les temples,pagodes ,de Bagan sont magnifiques, on peut voir dans plusieurs temples,quelquefois à la lumière d'une lanterne ,de superbes peintures .Nous avons été souvent seuls sur les sites.Après avoir eu un accident à moto, pas très facile de conduire sur les chemins sablonneux et en ville,nous avons engagé un chauffeur de taxi, M.Tun Tun, excellent professionnel ,qui ,dans un anglais fluide, a été notre guide et nous a beaucoup parlé de son pays. Son adresse silvergirl.girl1@gmail.com Nous n'avons pas fait la promenade en montgolfière dont les tarifs sont exorbitants.Nous sommes montés en haut de la tour d'un hôtel pour 5 dollars ,tour qui offre une vue â 360 degrés sur la plaine.
