My wife and I decided to visit Myanmar in late 2019 as part of SE Asia journey. We knew little of the country and queried several local tour operators to leverage their expertise. We selected Odyssey based on their clarity of communication, quality of suggested itinerary and fair price. As we paid our deposit (for private tour) was a leap of faith knowing little about Myanmar or Odyssey Travel’s genuine capabilities…

From the moment we landed in Mandalay our two-week Myanmar tour was amazing!!! Commend Odyssey team on guiding and executing an awesome tour. In such a short period of time we absorbed and experienced seeing many amazing places. We learned so much from the professional guides who provided genuine value and assistance, helping educate us on Myanmar’s many unique places and range of diverse tribes and people.

Thank you again Zin Min for putting together such an excellent, well organized trip!! All of the guides you assigned were fantastic :-) Each had wonderful, warm personalities and really went out of their way to ensure our very busy itinerary flowed flawlessly and that we experienced the vibrant culture of Myanmar. We’d now consider each of the guides as good friends. In general, Myanmar was amazingly interesting, the highlight of our SE Asia tour!!

Travelling with Odyssey tour was absolutely amazing through some of the most beautiful places across Myanmar. I would definitely recommend trying Odyssey's travel packages as they are extremely well curated to ensure you make the most of your stay in Myanmar. Getting around Myanmar and the language barrier can be difficult so having such amazing tour guides was an absolute must.

Our tour went over 4/3 nights days, starting in Yangon with all internal flights included (which was incredibly convenient and well organised). Our first flight took us from Yangon to Bagan. Here you will be able to see the vast array of pagodas and stupas that litter the countryside, it really is an incredible sight. Our tour guide was incredibly professional and was very insightful on all the major Pagodas and the local family businesses. This was topped off with a relaxing sunset cruise on the Ayerwaddy river.

In the morning make sure you ask the hotel staff to book you a horse-cart ride. Getting right up among the stupas and seeing the countryside was absolutely breath-taking. It also helped that our driver and his horse named Rosé (after the kpop star) was a rather talented photographer.

The next day we travelled to Mt Popa, and climbed up to a temple a top a mountain before staying at one of the most serene hotels, which overlooked the aforementioned temple. Make sure you bring your camera for this part, as the views are beautiful!

The next day we said our goodbyes to our tour guide and hopped on another plane to Heho. Our young tour guide during this section was incredible, he was so enthusiastic and helpful! Boating across Lake Inle was the highlight of the trip. This really was a unique experience, and seeing the temples, local trade and floating gardens was really interesting.

To be honest, this brief review does not give justice to what an amazing experience Odyssey Travel and Tours provides and I definitely recommend booking with them.

One thing to remember is to make sure you bring cash and particularly small change!

Staff at the agency was friendly and helpful. My private tour guide was friendly and helpful too. He might have done his best but his english wasn't so good so I hardly understood what he said. I didn't get much information about Yangon like what I expected.

Thet was fantastic in meeting all the requests we made. She really tried her best to accommodate what we wanted to see and do. She was extremely patient throughout the entire process as we were making decisions on the itinerary. The guides provided by Odyssey were professional and did their best to ensure that we had a good time. Would choose Odyssey again if I were to go back to Myanmar for another trip.

We highly recommend Odyssey Travels & Tours without reservation. The service they provide for planning a trip and the support offered while visiting Myanmar was invaluable in our experience.

This was our second trip to Myanmar. The first trip was in 2012. During that time we used another local company that was quite good. When we approached them for this trip, the communication was a little slow and there seemed to be an unwillingness to customize or tailor the trip to what we specifically wanted. After sending some emails to other tour organizers in Yangon we got a reply from Odyssey Travels & Tours. Their service was so impressive from the start to the end in terms of their communication, willingness to listen and understand our specific needs as well as, most importantly, make valuable suggestions and changes to our proposed itinerary that would ensure we get the most out of our trip.

Thet Su Aung, our Inbound Tour Manager, organized every last detail in a way that left us feeling confident that our 18-day private tour would go off without a hitch. In travel that's the hope, but it rarely happens. And sure enough there were a few bumps along the road with things going off track that were outside of Odyssey's control. In each instance a quick email to Thet was all that was required to fix the situation and get us back on track. For example, one of the hotels we stayed placed us in a room below a room being renovated. We like to tour early in the morning and in the evening (best light for taking pictures and cooler temperatures!) and sleep in the middle of the afternoon. This was impossible. The hotel was indifferent to our concerns and only offered us a downgraded room as a solution. A quick email to Thet resulted in the construction ending for the remainder of our four-night stay and a free dinner at the hotel restaurant by the hotel manager. She's that good! Thet also helped us with an issue related to a third party day tour provider not living up to their end of the deal by getting us a refund. And, most importantly, when we decided to change our plans (we like to be flexible to take advantage of things as they come up) for two days during the trip she was able to facilitate that with a few quick emails that left us thinking that this was truly the best of both worlds: The flexibility of independent travel with the ease of an organized tour.

It's also worth noting that all of the drivers we were assigned were extremely conscientious and professional. The one in Yangon particularly, who drove us to Kayin State, by the name of Tun Tun OoPh was quite impressive. His English was solid and his level of care and concern (I was traveling with a recently healed ankle fracture) were amazing. In one instance he walked up and down over 2,000 steps (Mt Zwegabin) because he was worried about how steep they were. He even made suggestions that we missed from our itinerary (like the snake temple in Bago that was really memorable!) that proved to be highlights that would have been missed without his insider's knowledge.

In short, we had a great visit to Myanmar and no small part of that was due to Thet Su Aung and Odyssey. We highly recommend this company to organize your tour. From planning to traveling in Myanmar you'll basically have a knowledgeable insider who will take care of you with a level of service that exceeds expectations. Finally, it is worth describing the personal touch Odyssey adds to their services. In all of my travel and using services such as this I’ve never come across this: Thet met us with a nice present at the hotel the first day of our trip and went over everything and asked if we needed to change anything or had questions and then, at the end of the trip, she greeted us at the airport, took us to our hotel in Yangon and met with us again to see how everything went. She also offered to take us to dinner. It was such an elegant and thoughtful touch that made Odyssey Travels and Tours so superior to the competition. José Reynaldo, Los Angeles, California.

I had a great experience with Odyssey Tours. I found Myanmar to be a challenging trip to plan as it is a country rapidly developing and any information I read online seemed to be quickly outdated. Alick Peng at Odyssey Tours helped me to navigate Myanmar (Rangoon, Bagan and Mandalay) and answer any questions/ concerns I had. He arranged some fabulous activities such as hot air ballooning. I also have used Alick to help me plan/ research other trips such as Thailand and Cambodia.

Odyssey Tours is an extremely professional and trustworthy company. You don't need to worry about them ripping you off or not delivering what they promise. All my emails were answered in a timely fashion. They were a great help to me and I highly recommend them to anyone from the occasional travel to the adventure seeker!

Thet was responsive, thorough, attentive, and met us at our hotel to hand deliver the various airline tickets (domestic and international) to us. I was hesitant about handing over so much money to a Yangon based travel agent but the entire experience exceeded expectations and I would highly recommend using them for planning your own way around Myanmar. Thank you Thet.

I was skeptical at first having never booked an organized tour before, but I was very happy and comforted by the support of Eipo and team. We used Odyssey for our 8 day trip throughout Myanmar (Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay and Inle Lake). The team was professional and very communicative throughout the process! Thanks again!
