Fantastic tour jammed packed from start to finish. Cycle routes well off the beaten track and it was a great insight into seeing how locals live their daily lives. The tour leader and team very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful and were able to adjust the itinerary depending on conditions (especially the temperature at this time of year). Amazing sights in Myanmar, a must visit destination for all those seeking an adventure.

Fantastic trip. First time with Explore and would definitely go with them again, every detail was looked after. I cycle quite a bit but found cycling challenging, more difficult then I thought it would be.

Very interesting trip, but some of Route was along very busy roads belching out polluting fumes; dangerous and unhealthy. As traffic will only get worse as the country develops this needs to be rethought. The tour leader seemed a bit jaded (end of season combined with new baby?) He didn't always seem to appreciate what tourists were interested in and was sometimes not very forthcoming with information, but was good organised and good on logistics.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We’re sorry that you were disappointed with cycling along busy roads –wherever possible, we do try to ride on the most interesting, quietest and safest routes possible. Inevitably though, on some rides there will be sections that are busier than others and polluting vehicles are more commonplace in developing countries. I am also sorry you felt your Explore Leader was lacklustre; we have shared your feedback with our local agent and leader. Generally he is very popular and gets great feedback, but we will continue to monitor his trips to make sure that there is no drop in the quality of the normally excellent service he offers.

Great Haseley
Seeing Myanmar by bike is absolutely the best way to see not only the known locations and tourist spots but also the way of life in general. Fascinating country with so much to see both from a historical perspective but also the more recent and current events and having the chance to see how the country might shape in the future.

The people are unfailingly polite, friendly and smiley, nothing is too much trouble.

Tourism as we know is relatively new so don't go expecting slick western style standards, that's not what it is about. The Myanmar people all try hard to make the experience as positive as possible and they are very resourceful, go with the flow! We ate local food (apart from the breakfast) for every meal, its great and worth trying at every opportunity.

Highlights on this trip were cycling in the hills around Kalaw and Pindaya, the river trips, the Golden Monastery, watching the transport when cycling on the busier roads, Bagan temples.

Stockbridge in Hampshire
It was an action packed holiday - early starts to beat the heat of the day - with lots of sites to take in on the way. The group were all like minded people who we got on really well with. The organisation of the tour was superb and the people of Burma were delightful.

If you don't like early mornings this is not for you!
Be prepared to see an endless procession of Buddhas and monks and stupas and temples.
The trip highlights were the happy smiling faces that greeted us on every corner.

A good level of fitness is required as the cycling is fairly challenging at times.
The level of accommodation is not great at times considering the price of the trip.
The highlights of the trip were being able to cycle off road and stopping in mountain villages for tea and snacks in village houses. The people are delightful and welcoming and the children simply adorable.

Broughton in Furness
Off road parts are best. Traffic, noise and fumes on some of the road rides. The people are delightful.

Riding through quiet countryside and country villages to view rural scenes unchanged for centuries. Visit to the Jade market, lacquerware production, silver smithing, boating through stilted villages and floating gardens and learning about local culture and politics from our guide.
Get fit and be prepared for busy days. Be prepared for a surfeit of Buddhism culture
