This tour was certainly worth it! Our tour guide, Myo, was very professional and knowledgeable. I would certainly recommend small group tour if it is your first time trip to Yangon, or if you would like to explore the cultural side of the city.

I was the only one on my tour which was no issue at all for the company. I had a beautiful air con car fab driver and my tour guide Kay was exceptional. Not sure if every group gets such a special time but I felt nothing was too much and I was shown a few little extras. Tasted some street food, all round fantastic.

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.

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.
