Myanmar Escorted Tours refer to a trend that a person or a group travels with the experienced tour guide who is there to take care of all services and places to see. Before traveling as an escort, there are several tips that you should always read for the perfect travel to Myanmar (Burma), an enigmatic and charming country.
#1: Myanmar Tour selection is based on reputation, not only the prices
Before you book a package, it’s best to work with reliable Myanmar Travel Agencies. Do not only care about the prices. Rather, spend time doing researches about their reputation and reading comments about their services so that your booking comes with confidence. Then, make a comparison among the top-ranked tour agents in order to finalize the choice. After that, contact the agent to get details about the itinerary, the services included and excluded, the accompanied groups if any, etc. Also, the key is to clearly understand the itinerary.
#2: Tour guide will take care of all services included in the package
In an escorted tour to Myanmar, you will be one of the privileged guests to discover the intact, captivating tourist attractions. As a mysterious country preserving beautiful nature, traditional culture, and ancient Buddhist monuments, this country offers numerous opportunities for adventure, discovery, and pilgrimage that increase a need to have an escort accompanying you. Only the top attractive places will be included in the itinerary in a careful and productive way.
For example, if you travel to Bagan Myanmar where is filled with thousands of the temples and pagodas, of which some remain untouched, it’s necessary to have a local tour guide to accompany you there and tell you the history of the sites. The guide will make sure that you will get to the best attractions like Ananda Temple, Shwesandaw Pagoda, Minyeingon Temple, Dhammayangyi, etc. And if you want a Bagan Balloon Tour, the accompanied escort is there to arrange the services. So if you don’t want to be on your own taking care of everything (flight, hotel, transportation, meal, sightseeing spots, etc.), just book the Myanmar package tours.
#3: The last sections of the itinerary will tell you what is included and what is not
In almost every itinerary, below the Tour Price are the Services Included and Services Excluded sections that clearly state things corresponding to the price. Therefore, spend time learning the tour itinerary and check with your tour agent if anything not clear enough. Besides, it’s easy to tailor the package according to your preferences. For example, if the tour price excludes the two-way international flight to Myanmar, but you want to include it in the package, you can confirm and pay the flight ticket prices in advance. Then, the agent will take care of the flight tickets for you too.
Often, the tips, drinks, and personal expenses are not included in the program. There might be more things to take notes, such as the entrance ticket prices to certain tourist attractions in Myanmar.
#4: Myanmar Escorted Tours let you know more friends and save more money
Many people might choose to go on Myanmar Escorted Tours as this helps them to make new friends and reduce the expenses compared to the self-guided tours. If possible, make friends with the tour guides too as they are the masters of the destination who will give you much useful information like the best places to eat in Yangon or the best spots to take pictures in Inle Lake. For most cases, save the tour guide’s mobile phone or the other member’s, and bring the hotel’s name cards if you go out or have a private plan.
