We enjoyed the tour though we skipped the horse cart ride as we were not too keen on that. Our guide Sai was good. He was helpful, friendly and patient. It was a hot day when we were in Pyin Oo Lwin but he walked with us to the Orchid Garden and patiently waited while my husband took countless photos of the orchids. He even brought us to a wholesale flower market along the way and to a coffee place when my husband asked about Burmese coffee. And when we got back to Mandaly ahead of time and wanted to visit a gem shop which was not part of the tour he willingly brought us there and waited. When we indicated we would prefer to eat in a typically local restaurant lunch was included we think he changed the designated restaurant and brought us there instead.

Wonderful trip out to see the countryside and the old British way of life there. So different to areas along the Irrawaddy. Would recommend.
