I was very pleasantly surprised as Asian Tour Myanmar was several steps ahead of all other travel agencies I approached, and managed to arrange all my travel needs within 24 hours despite a very last minute request I sent to them. As a poor bagpacking university student, I was very grateful to Asian Tour for helping to give me recommendations to exotic places I had never dreamt of going... Read this review
Wir haben die Tour Yangon, Bagan und Thandwe gewählt. Dei Sehenswürdigkeiten in Yangon wurden uns in einer interessanten 2-TagesTour (jeweils am Nachmittag/Abend) gezeigt. Der absolute Höhepunkt war die Atmosphäre in Shwedagon Pagode am Abend, einzigartig :-). Die Abholung vom Hotel und die Fahrt zum Flughafen am nächsten Tag war pünktlich. Wir sind dann nach Bagan geflogen, ist auch sehr zu empfehlen. Die teilweise 2000 Jahre alten Tempel sind einzigartig.... Read this review

"I think I was one of the first tourist joining this tour! But it was really worth every single $. After a short drive we came to a small village where the bike-men where waiting for us. They had very prober bikes (mine was a Cannondale!). The owner of the bike-company is a very professional biker and explained about the tour and safety. Our first stop was for coffee...

I and my travel mate used modified 9 days promotion offer in November 2018 for visiting Yangon, Inle Lake, Bagan, and Mandalay. Asian Tour provided accommodation in shared twin rooms with daily breakfast, domestic airfare Heho-Bagan, public bus from Yangon-Heho, a public boat from Bagan-Mandalay, private pick-ups in each place. The service was smooth and allowed us to do our own exploration of sites taking care about transportation and... Read this review
"Last February I spend some time in Yangon and wanted to see something else. So I have joined this tour and visited the Dala side of Yangon. Life over there is so different and such a surprise to me. Very kind and friendly people, you really see the colorful local life, easy to reach (just a 10 minute boat-ferry with views on Yangon) and relaxed. It feels like you... Read this review

I booked a one-day photography workshop with world-famous photographer Maung Maung through ASIAN TOUR. The process was straight-forward and easy, and the company was able to accommodate my schedule on short notice. I had a great time in Bagan and I can wholeheartedly recommend Simon and ASIAN TOUR. I am looking forward to my next adventure with them.
Eight years of highest quality service. For the past eight years we have been leading tours in Burma. Asian Tour has served as our local partner and have never disappointed in making travel and accommodation arrangements according to our requirements.
