Tailor-made holidays & tours in Myanmar

Rudyard Kipling described Burma as ‘quite unlike any place you know about’ and that still rings true today. Few people beyond its borders know the country well. Take a tailor-made holiday or perhaps a river cruise on the Irrawaddy to explore this fascinating country.

Everything about this trip was first class. Myanmar is a wonderful place to visit and I would recommend it to anyone looking to visit a beautiful and fantastically diverse, undiscovered country.
