Of the 7 Intrepid tours, and some of my own personal travel, I've declared this the best trip yet! Joseph was wonderful - very informative, organised, friendly and a fantastic sense of humor
Wrong time of the year to be visiting this country as it was too hot to really enjoy the experience fully. Whilst there are allowances to be made for an 'emerging' destination and I understand from many reports that accommodation is an ongoing challenge, two accommodation choices should be reviewed; The rat infested Asia Plaza Hotel in Yangon and the boat used for the river cruise. ( see section below) The tour on the whole covered all the must see sights and was well organised by our tour leader. Our tour leader, mr Ko Ko Aye, was very efficient, mature and personable.... He made sure each person was ok during the trip. Very well organised. Personable. Mature. Capable.
