This is definitely the best way to do Myanmar! As someone who usually avoids any kind of tour and anything touristy; I would never usually book something like this; but I wanted to see the highlights of Myanmar in a short time. I have only 5 days. Trying to organize it myself was becoming increasingly frustrating and very expensive! A Travel Mate organized as a 5 day tour and I would recommend it to anyone: all flights and hotels booked a private car and a charming, knowledgeable guide (Mr Myist, Mr Toon ) in each place made our trip easy… Read more »

The guides I had in Mandalay and Yangon were excellent and I particularly appreciated that on my return to Yangon I had access to a guide and driver again until my flight later that same night.
Thank you for all your help in organising the trip – I would highly recommend A Travel Mate to friends planning to travel to Myanmar and I will return to Myanmar for sure in the future – what a beautiful country!

I visited Myanmar a couple of years ago exactly on that purpose and got excellent help from Angelina Ms organizing as many attractive locations in Yangoon and Bagan as I could handle during my short stay, flights, very good accommodation, restaurants, pleasant guides and drivers sitting out my photo sessions patiently and always helpful if I had a particular request. Came home with over 1000 images and fond memories of this beautiful country, its super friendly inhabitants and the great help I got from A Travel Mate. Hope to visit again soon and will definitely go back to them.

I just wanted to tell you – Angelina Ms what a wonderful time Marc and I had on our trip! We loved the places we stayed, all so different, but wonderful. You took very good care of us and all so friendly and nice, we couldn’t have asked for more. We saw loads of beautiful animals who shared their world with us, it was lovely! Thank you for recommending the places that you did, we truly had a wonderful time with A Travel Mate

The company were professional and friendly, and guides all carried a wealth of knowledge. There’s a vast amount of history to absorb!
We covered a lot of ground during our tour (we became temple/stupa and pagoda-d out), however were able to tailor the itinerary.
Our Yangon guide (Han) was a standout, as was the operations manager Angelina VU.
An unforgettable experience!

I’d like to thank A Travel Mate for arranging such a wonderful trip !! The arrangement of having a personal guide and driver waiting for us at each destination was perfect for us. It was so comfortable as we didn’t have to worry about anything as they took us from place to place with ease. All guides (Han, Tim) and drivers (Toon, Myist) were punctual and courteous, the fact they were all locals of their particular destination made it a genuine experience. Thank you, it was an excellent experience

I love the cuisine is a mixture of fragrant curries, tangy salads, healthy soups and tasty sweets. Visited golden pagoda where was the biggest Buddha Statue I have ever seen added by the long story, which shared from the tourguide what made my trip to ancient places was much more interesting. My tour length was 5 days which was enough for exploring around Yangon.The hotel was situated at good location so I usually walked to discovery the city in my free time. The price was fine and goods were nice as well. Thank you! I will definitely take the tour… Read more »

After research on Internet we zeroed on A Travel Mate to organize our 5 day trip to Myanmar; I visited Yangon, Mandalay and Bagan. All are great, Ms Angelina Vu was our Coordinator. She is a truly professional person and ensured that our trip went through well. She was available at all times willing to assist and help us.

Excellent service from Angelina Ms who worked with us to set up the tour, checked on us during the trip and followed up afterwards to see if we were happy. Our guide , Mr Than was superb well. Our trip just only 5 days but we visit many temples in Yagoon, Mandalay and see the local life in Inle Lake. Great job!!!
