We absolutely loved the tour and Annie. The tour certainly packed a lot into those few days. I really enjoyed the last few days in Phuket. It was very relaxing and restful after such a busy tour. It would be nice to have at least a few suggestions available as to what to do when arriving in Phuket. Nothing has to be included, but just some ideas on what there is to see and do. We did fine, but felt kind of abandoned once we were there. Annie was delightful. She has a wonderful personality and is very good at what she does. I would also suggest to make it more obvious how things are to be paid. I know the information said so many US dollars, but I thought it meant the equivalent to US dollars. We barely were able to scrape up the US currency needed. We had purchased Baht for the tipping expenses. Otherwise, a wonderful trip. Would recommend it to others. ”
My family & I had a wonderful tour of Egypt. It was a jammed packed itinerary. It was all captivating, from our arrival in Cairo with it's organised chaotic traffic , to the iconic legendary sites. Down to Aswan by Sleeper train was an exciting experience. A relaxing cruise sailing down the Nile on a Felucca with Nubian food was an awesome experience and should not be missed. The vibrant and enchanting markets of Khan el Khalili is a souvenir paradise. The Cairo museum is a treasure trove of Pharonic history. Too short a time to do justice to both. After 13 days i eventually got the hang of haggling. The hassling in the streets were an annoyance though. Hot air ballooning over the Valley of the Kings in Luxor was a breathtaking experience. It was the highlight. Hurghada on the Red Sea was a good break to catch up on rest and relaxation. Our main guide Dino, was friendly and very helpful throughout our tour. He has a wealth of knowledge on things Egyptian and provided good information on the sites and monuments. He made it all contextual and meaningful. We couldn't have done it without him.
We had one of our best, if not the best, holiday ever and can’t thank you enough for hooking us up with “On the Go” tour company. Punctual/ wonderful new and clean cars/ all their guides very professional and well informed and reasonably good English too. Given the extent to which Myanmar was cut off from the rest of the world for so long, it is amazing that these guides have been able to learn such articulate English in such a short time.
A couple of comments that you might find useful and please feel free to share, if appropriate:
-The best guide of all is in Bagan and he goes by the name of “Jo Jo”. If you send clients to Bagan, he is a must as he is very eloquent, incredibly knowledgeable in Buddhism, Myanmar History, every last temple to any depth you want to go.
In Bagan, the Bagan Thande Hotel located on the Ayeyarwady River, has excellent cottages with all amenities, extensive gardens and trees including wonderful and old acacia trees, commanding view of the river, and a good variety of foods. An excellent way to stay for a few days to explore the countryside and all its temples.
-While it is my loss as I have this thing about heights, Dorothy did the hot air balloon one hour flight over Bagan and can’t say enough about it. It really is a must do, professionally run and a good safety record
Without a doubt the best local airline is KBZ. New aircraft mostly ATR 72 500 made by Mitsubishi, good leg room, simply better aircraft and amenities than either Yangon Air or Bangkok Air which must have the oldest A 320’s in the world
While I have no idea if it is the best, we stayed at the Hupin Hotel on Inle lake in Shan State. Located right on the lake with most cabins built over the lake water on stilts. It has its own protected harbour, great views, room service if you can get past the language communication issues, a very large dining room and excellent veranda if you wish to eat outside. Mosquito spray or coils required.
On The Go was able to accommodate my walking challenges quite well – especially in Yangon where a wheel chair was used for the entire tour. The Burmese are an amazingly kind and compassionate people – with great respect for older people like us!
