Tribes Overall:

Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, our trip was the perfect blend of busy touring and then some essential relaxing on the beach.

Tribes Service:

Paul did a fantastic job of arranging the trip for us and everything went like clockwork.

Guides:

All of the guides were very knowledgeable, however it was very difficult to understand some of them due to the accent and we felt that this was rather a drawback as we were really struggling to understand what they were telling us on sight-seeing trips and eventually we "gave up". We also found a couple to be a little "pushy" ie on their agenda rather than ours, particularly the guides in Yangon and Mandalay and it was quite hard work getting them to give us options if we didn't want to see yet another Stupa. The guide at Inlay was extremely good and we enjoyed all of our visits with her.

Social & Environmental Responsibility:

A couple of the hotels were "Eco friendly" and we visited a local school where we made a donation, but otherwise not especially.


The places you stayed

Inle Princess Resort

Inle Princess Resort

Myanmar (Burma)

Absolutely Perfect!! wished we had stayed longer.


Fountain at the entrance to Mandalay Hill Resort

Mandalay Hill Resort

Myanmar (Burma)

Good central location but pretty average really - rooms were on the small side and the price for dinner was comparatively very expensive. Probably my least favourite of the hotels we stayed in.


Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary Resort

Thiripyitsaya Sanctuary Resort

Myanmar (Burma)

Beautiful setting on the river with an amazing swimming pool which was very welcome after a morning of sight-seeing. The bungalows were lovely and very comfortable.


The beach at Ngapali Bay Villas

Ngapali Bay Villas

Myanmar (Burma)

Accommodation superb, however the food service lacked what I would expect from a 5* property. The food quite frequently arrived cold or not at all until waiters were prompted. We got fed up with this and ate out most of the time. I've given an excellent as the bungalows were wonderful and made up for the bad service
