It was the first time in my life that I had all the itinerary and guides planned before departure, and It was completely worth it! I have always been more of a 'exploring by myself' kind of tourist and tried to avoid big organized groups. But the experience with Travel Local and their Myanmar partner was 100% recomendable. Having our own guides ( just for my partner and I)+ driver made the trip so easy and personalized that let us invest the time more efficiently allowing us to visit more places. Besides, travelling with local guides was really rewarding, you get to know so many details about their culture, their daily life traditions, things that you can't find in a book guide, just talking and having long serious conversation with local people. Myanmar is a country that deserves and even needs to be visited with a guide if you really wanna learn about their culture, their religion, their ethnicities, their history... also, sometimes is not that easy to arrange a transport and FORGET about driving by yourself. The experience with the website TravelLocal is very easy, intuitive and very professional.
The attention to details, organization and flexibility. Planning the trip they answered us very fast every time. The guides were all very kind, eager to share their knowledge and with good level of english.
Mandalay and the surroundings ( Mingun, Amarapura) , Bagan and Inle Lake can't be missed!
Flying over Bagan in an air balloon or driving around the temples with a scooter. Also, visiting the local market at Heho and the conversation with our guides.
