Chose this cruise as the itinerary looked very interesting. Could not have imagined just how interesting the cruise was in reality. Pandaw provided a luxury river cruise up the Irrawaddy taking in sites on both banks of the river, ending at Bagan (or Pagan).
We had the services of a guide, provided by Pandaw who was knowledgeable, friendly and clearly known and liked in the villages we visited. The crew provided for the cruise were, to a man, excellent. No request was too much trouble, and it was clear that our comfort and well being was their prime motivation.
The choice of stops was excellent with several trips further afield, by both mechanical and horse drawn conveyance. The trip to the Elephant nursery will live long in the memory.
Food and drink was very good with plenty of choice.
Myanmar is a beautiful country, with a people of great spirit. We saw thousands of Pagodas, Temples and Stupas, visited many and loved what we saw.
Our all too short trip to Myanmar ended in Yangon where we visited the Shwedagon Complex. In our opinion a 'Must see' for any visitor to Yangon, truly amazing. The traffic was as chaotic as can be imagined, even with the absence of motorbikes, caused by the paranoia of a previous military ruler.
Our trip was booked through ROL, who together with Pandaw gave us both a holiday to remember for a long time for all the right reasons. We most certainly not hesitate to book again through this combination.
