How was your Explore Tour Leader?
Absolutely terrific. Very professional at all times yet sympathetic to the needs of western tourists. Nyi Nyi was able to explain local ways and involve us in getting to grips with some of the more obscure traditions. We really felt we were getting under the skin of what was going on in the country. Nyi Nyi had a great sense of humour and looked after us all very well.
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
Go with an open mind. Be prepared for some early starts and do your homework.
Do you have anything else to add?
The only negative was the overlong wait in transit on way home at Kualur Lumpur airport. Also we were not aware that although there were only 3 internal flights , these necessitated many take offs and landings for each flight en route to our destinations. eg from Tachilek we had to fly to Lashio then Mandalay and finally Rangoon.
