Fantastic cruise to Bagan

Fantastic sightseeing cruise from Mandalay to Bagan. The staff really went above and beyond to make sure everyone were comfortable, I particularly enjoyed the longhi demonstration! Great little break in the local village too. Good food, comfortable chairs - I would recommend 100%

slow boat to bagan
, Feb 2020
great trip. we slept about 5 hours off and on very comfortable recliners. the 2 meals at 7 and noon were tasty and sufficient. crew were friendly without pandering. getting off and on the boat was not flat but had a good incline with a hand held rail. the highlight was stopping at the village to walk on lanes thru the connecting houses, see people working , observe the ingenuity with designing structures with wood, and knowing that the company supports the village school and other projects for out ability to gawk and peak without the need for us to give money.
Great Trip
, Feb 2020
We liked the whole travelling with the boat even visiting the village was interesting, but I would recommend to inform the passengers more about the different culture and not touching al the children there without asking (same for fotos) otherwise it is very respectless acting with other human beings. (Handout in different languages?) But again we enjoyed the boat, the crew and the whole tour!
Great day trip on the way to Bagan
, Feb 2020
Great way to get to Bagan. You get to see an amazing sunrise and do a peaceful boat ride along the river. You get to see life around. And great service on board with a stop to a village. I recommend it.
