Myanmar First Hand organised a fantastic trip to some of Myyanmar’s premier attractions that catered to the needs of 7 year olds and 70 year olds alike. Their local guides, accommodation recommendations and organisation was smooth and met our needs perfectly. Highly recommended!

We explored Myanmar with Myanmar 1st Hand in February 2019. From the moment we started discussing itinerary choices to the very end, every detail was covered by Lisa and Marty. Our itinerary was tailor made for us with our wish list always in mind. It was a perfect combination of discovery, meeting the people, seeing the sites, hiking and the best accomodation possible. We truly experienced Myanmar 1st Hand, with Lisa always available if we had any questions at all. Our guides were friendly and informative, always ready to tailor our hikes or days outings to suit us. Lisa made sure all our transfers and guides were ready and waiting for us at every stop and arranged some very special experiences. We could not planned this trip without her expertise and experience. Visiting local villages, staying at a local farm stay in remote Shen State and staying at a small river lodge on the banks of the Irrawaddy were real highlights. The hot air balloon ride over Bagan was truly unforgettable. Thank you, Myanmar 1st Hand, we came home memories that will last forever.

I had a brief trip exploring some remote regions in Thailand and Myanmar, which was fascinating. Myanmar 1st Hand was excellent -- making sure where we stayed was a quite high quality (that resort near the border!!!) and that we were able to get to our destinations without difficulty. Lisa is very knowledgable about the region and quite fun to be around (she joined our trip) as well. Go with a pro!

I have been lucky enough to travel with Myanmar 1st Hand to several regions of Myanmar (and Thailand) at different times over the last few years. All trips have been fabulously organized to experience local life in communities of diverse culture, cuisine and history in a unique and wonderfully personal way! Off the map travel is my favorite blended with an itinerary that has a little relaxation and luxury built in as well. Just pack your bags! From cycling and hiking to day trips by car or boat -- flying off to remote and spectacular locations -- you can do it all with Myanmar 1st Hand, I have. They supply all the information you need from Visas to packing tips; they suggest travel choices tailored to your interest and specialize in the very best customer service. Lisa and her team make sure you have everything you need and the experience of a lifetime. The exquisite and interesting Yangon, the caves of 1,000 Buddhas in Pindaya, the Temples of Bagan, the Hill Tribe villages in Keng Tung, the beaches of Daweii, the Annual Balloon Festival at Taunggyi don’t miss any of it. It’s truly spectacular! Slip on comfortable shoes for walking and temples and camera a must.
