Unique trips in a very exceptional place

We've been organizing one-of-a-kind private custom trips in Myanmar since the late 1990s, from classic overland tours to the first cycling tours of Myanmar, a first of a kind Myanmar Digital Photography Tour, trips organized around attendeing the vibrant Inle Lake Phaung Daw Oo Festival, to private escapes for solitude or an unforgettable honeymoon retreat nestled against the Himalayan foothills. Our latest focus is on the artist community in Yangon, as the community emerges during this exceptional period of Burmese glasnost.

Aside from exceptional, original experiences, longtime travelers know the guide makes the trip and this even truer in Myanmar where there is a dearth of experienced guides. However, you can expect the very top escorts along with an attentive and efficient office.
