We have used Odyssey Tours before which is why we used them again for Myanmar. Their execution is faultless. The supplied guides spoke English at a high level and knew a great deal about their culture. Apart form Yangon, we went to Bagan, Inle Lake, Heho. Every place was well worth seeing and provided quite a contrast in some ways. The accommodation and included meals were al truly top rate. This is to be highly recommended

Well this year it was Myanmar and our third trip organised by Allison at IOT, having previously been to Cambodia and Vietnam. It is a wonderful country slowly adapting to mass tourism. My recommendation - visit sooner rather than later whilst relatively unspoilt.

A super trip starting in Yangon with the Schewedagon temple, colonial buildings and walks around the local markets. We then went on to Bagan with the many ancient temples and stupas. Best seen from a balloon ride at sunrise and the trip organised with Oriental Ballooning did not disappoint. T the end of the day there were super sunsets in the peace and quiet of the plains. Our final stop was Mandalay which included a lovely river trip and a visit to Mingun. 

The accommodation was first class with a special mention to the Belmond Governor’s Residence at Yangon which was excellent. Aureum Palace at Bagan with a lakeside villa came a close second.

All our guides had excellent knowledge which they were keen to share and all spoke excellent english. It was nice to have a couple of lady guides for a change. The local drivers were excellent. 

Food during the day was varied and dietary requirements easily accommodated. 

We can not speak highly enough of Allison and her organisational skills and desire to help and adapt situations to meet our needs and make this another memorable holiday. Thank you and to all those behind the scene at IOT. 

Would I recommend IOT to organise a holiday? Yes, yes, yes.

This was part of a 2 week tour we did with Odyssey. Our guide (Maw Hein) and driver were great. Having a local who knew all the tips and info made such a difference to our experience. There is so much we would have missed without his expertise. Thank-you Nikki from Odyssey for putting together such a great tour for us.
