Dear Mrs. Grest,

My family and two American friends visited Cambodia (Angkor Wat) and Myanmar for two weeks in late December 2007 and early January 2008 under the auspices of Myanmar Travel, Ltd. Mrs. Grest and her staff receive high marks from our group for organizing and conducting our trip. They impressed us from the start with their friendliness, flexibility and expertise. The office readily accommodated our specific requests regarding domestic flights, in-country itineraries, and accommodations in Siem Reap and throughout our travels in Myanmar.

From Bangkok we flew to Siem Reap to spend two days visiting Angkor Wat. We were welcomed by our guide, Mr. Sophi and his assistant who made sure from the start that our stay would be informative and enjoyable. The Bopha Angkor Hotel and staff also made our stay very pleasant. Of course the highlights were the daily visits to the Angkor complex plus side trips to other temples and villages in between.

Myanmar was our principal destination. We spent 12 days visiting Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan and Ngapali Beach. Throughout our journey - the first time in Myanmar for all of us - we were accompanied by our guide (except for the few days on the beach), Mr. Win Bo Bo, who truly made Myanmar the memorable experience it became for us. Win, captured our hearts from the start. Meeting us at the Yangon international airport his winning smile, friendliness and ability to relate to us on a personal and professional level made a lasting impression on us. We came to know the country - its history, culture, people and current situation - through his knowledge and ability to convey information in an interesting and enjoyable manner. His deep understanding of and love for Burmese culture, combined with his pleasant personality, brought his country and its people closer to us.

After many interesting experiences in Yangon, Mandalay Bagan and Ngapali Beach, we left with strong impressions about the places we had visited. Clearly, these were not the usual superficial highlights of a routinely organized tour.

Myanmar Travel is to be commended for service and quality. The entire organization – director and staff – receive our thanks for a wonderful travel experience.
