“Myanmar”

We have just returned from a 3 week tour of Myanmar organised by Exotic Voyages.
We covered Yangon, Mandalay, Irawaddy Cruise, Bagan, Inle Lake & Ngapali Beach.
There was alot to cover on this trip and Exotic voyages did a fantastic job of supplying a number of diffirent options until we managed to finalise the details. Their response to our questions was immediate and they suggested things we think of.
We did some of our own research and added to their local knowledge a trip was designed that covered our requirments and added some other interesting items.
The local guides selected were fantastic, their enthusiasm to make sure we learnt and enjoyed their country, culture and people was a pleasure.
We were given a local contact in the case of any problems, but thankfully didn’t have to use it.
This is the second time we have used Exotic voyages ( first was Vietnam) and would definitely use them again as we trust them to deliver an interesting programme.

“Two fantastic weeks in Burma…”  

went like clock-work. Each transition, each venue, hotel, excursion, guide, transfer went off without a hitch…and the quality of service and attention to our needs were excellent. Mai Phuong who made all the arrangements for us was on top of each detail and communicated them clearly and in a timely manner. Plus the guides and drivers they chose were punctual, well-informed and most gracious. Our guide, Nang Htwe Phy, for our time in Inle Lake was superb.

We are very pleased that we chose Exotic voyages to arrange our trip and recommend them highly.

“Exotic Voyages Myanmar Tour”

We recently completed a 22 day tour of Myanmar organised by Exotic Voyages and can thoroughly recommend them. Although we have travelled extensively in South East Asia (and elsewhere), this was the first time we have used an agent to make our travel arrangements and we will certainly do so again in the future, based on our experience with Exotic Voyages. After reading the travel forums and some blogs posted on Trip Advisor, I narrowed down a list of agents who operate in Myanmar and contacted them via email, attaching a proposed itinerary. Exotic Voyages was the first agent to respond and immediately impressed me with their professionalism and attention to detail. Bui Thanh, our tour co-ordinator, responded promptly to my many questions and prepared multiple drafts of our itinerary as we made changes and refinements.
When we were in Myanmar, everything ran like clockwork, with our guides and drivers waiting for us at the airport or ferry dock whenever we arrived at a new destination. Our six different guides were all knowledgable and enthusiastic and went out of their way to follow up our queries and provide us with new experiences that matched our interests. For example, on learning that my husband was interested in the Buddhist temple chants we kept hearing, two of our guides provided him with DVDs, one of which the guide (Thiri, based at Inle Lake) prepared herself. Initially, we were a little embarrassed by the amount of attention lavished on us: we felt like royalty having doors opened and our luggage carried for us all the time; and (for example) having a whole (large) boat with a crew of four chartered for us to travel up the Kaladan River from Sittwe to Mrauk U, wait there for two days, then transport us back down the river. But we quickly learned to relax and enjoy the luxury of not having to manage the hassles of traveling in a developing country, while having an “expert” constantly on hand to tell us about what we were seeing. And the cost of this (on top of transport and entrance fees) was only about US$1200 for the two of us for 20 days of independent guided touring – cheaper than traveling as part of a large tour group! We also appreciated having phone contact from Exotic Voyages personnel during our tour to check on our progress.

“Above and beyond expectations”

As i pack to bid farewell to Myanmar am reflecting on what a wonderful 18 days we have had. Exotic voyages could not be faulted . All our guides were fantastic , different in their own way and nothing was ever too much trouble … We had absolute highlights every day and can’t believe the diversity if experiences and what we have learned in such a short time. Accommodation was first class, internal flights with KBZ excellent and we definitely enjoyed many restaurants.
Thanks to Mai for organizing our trip so well it certainly far exceeded our expectations

“Exotic Voyages provides a premier service”

We recently returned from a two week work and pleasure trip to northern and central Vietnam. Exotic Voyages took care of us on the pleasure portion and we could not have been more pleased. They responded quickly, effectively and graciously to each of our needs before, during and after the trip. The guides were outstanding. We are not ‘packaged tour’ travelers and like to get off the beaten path as well as enjoy some luxury and style. Each guide accommodated our interests fully and went over and above the ‘basic service’ to show us not only the highlights of Vietnam but also the people, history and opinions behind them. The accommodations were well-chosen and exactly the mix of comfort and ‘in the heart of things’ that we like. Exotic Voyages is our travel company of choice as we plan our next round of global travels.

“16 Day Tour of Myanmar”

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Myanmar arranged by Exotic Voyages. From the time we were met by our first guide and driver in Mandalay to the time we finished our trip in Yangon we received first class service. All the hotels, guides and arrangements matched or exceeded our expectations. I will certainly be recommending them to our friends who are thinking of going to Indo China.

“Myanmar, Amazing Sights, Sounds, and Smells”

My wife, sister, and brother-in-law just returned from a 17 day trip to Myanmar arranged by Exotic Voyages. From my very first email to Exotic 11 months prior to our trip and continuing through our 17 days in Myanmar, we received excellent customer service. Bui Ly, our Exotic Voyages specialist, was easy to work with and very willing to make changes as we developed our itinerary. We were very pleased with the quality of our guides in all the areas of the country we visited and our accommodations were excellent. The country is very unique with unbelievable sights, sounds, and smells but Exotic Voyages made the experience even more special in arranging events like having high tea atop a temple looking down on the Bagan plains ablaze with the setting sun on 100’s of other temples and pagodas. I would not hesitate to recommend Exotic Voyages, particularly for a country like Myanmar. I’m sure they do a great job arranging trips to other countries but they provided a wonderful experience at a very good price in Myanmar.

“20 Day Tour of the Far East”

We recently returned from a trip to Thailand,Cambodia and Vietnam this involved 6 flights, 5 hotels, 1 train journey and countless transfers , as you can imagine thats allot of traveling and we were little concerned if it would all come together, but thanks to Mai Phuong at Exotic Voyages it all went like clockwork and stress free. We would recommend Exotic Voyages to anyone and hope to travel with them again soon,

“Above and beyond in every way”

We couldn’t have been more pleased with our vacation in Vietnam with Exotic Voyages. After months of trying to arrange a three- week vacation to Vietnam by myself, I finally sent Mai Phuong an email asking for help. From north to south, she arranged a car with driver, flights and hotels, even a private junk tour of Ha Long Bay. It was all first-rate and surprisingly inexpensive! All the guides were top-notch—and flexible. When we changed our itinerary several times, it was never a problem (eg wanting hiking instead of canoeing and skipping a tour of this to do that ).
We were in good hands!
About 3 months later, we emailed Mai Phuong again about a painting we had seen but regretted not buying. Incredibly, they found it and sent it to us– took a couple of weeks of Herculean effort on their part, and we are so grateful.
Wouldn’t go anywhere in Asia without them!!

“Extremely well planned and trip that ran very smoothly”

We spent 12 days in Myanmr with four different Exotic Voyages guides, all of whom were extremely personable, punctual, knowledgeable and fun to be with. Our flights all worked like clockwork. We then went to Siem Reap and had a four day tour there. The hotels were all OK – I might have made some different choices in Myamar, but that was not the fault of ExotcVoyags. The vehicles were all very clean, in good condition and with good drivers. Our hotel in Siem Reap – Pavillion d’Orient was excellent. I would highly recommend this company and would use them again for a trip to Asia.
