I called Sam the Man as soon as I arrived in Dawei and he promptly came to my hotel to help me and my husband and two friends to organize my stay. thanks to him we had a wonderful experience in the Dawei beaches and spending one fantastic day on a cruise to the Moscos Islands. Sam is not only a very professional person, but also a person committed to his people and his place. He is committed in supporting the local comunites and in promoting the social and environmental respect. A very important and rare quality nowdays. thanks a lot!

I first met Sam in 2016 when I booked him for a day tour on Motorbikes. This time in Feb 2020 I was travelling with my partner and 81yr old mother.

We booked Sam for 3 full days transferring from Myiek to Dawei, a full day around Dawei and beaches and then for Dawei to Kanchaburi. What a terrific adventure we all had! Sam's car is spacious and comfortable with water and fruit provided. Plenty of stops for tea, food and pictures whenever we wished. Sam is a great guy, polite, friendly and considerate always. It seems that virtually everyone in Dawei knows Sam :) On our final day Sam arranged a 4x4 vehicle for the trip through the jungle to the Thai border. This was 150kms of which 100kms was dirt road. Amazing to get into such beautiful country with rivers and mountains. We were sad to bid farewell to Sam once at the Thai border. Without a doubt if you want to relax and enjoy a visit to Dawei then you must book with Sam.

I had a wonderful day with Sam.I had the luck to get first hand knowledge about the day to day life of Burmese people. Sam likes to said he is a bridge between the customer and the burmese people you will meet during the day if you choose to go for the "burmese culture tour". I can totally confirm his statement. I had several interactions with very nice and friendly people throughout my day, one of the best I got in Myanmar so far. He acts as a facilitator and translator, allowing you to talk with authentic people from Myanmar. If you show him your curiosity about his culture, he will happily share without any reservation. I canno't recommend him enough.

I had an amazing time trekking and beach hopping with Sam! He so friendly and knowledgeable about Dawei and the surrounding villages. If you are looking for an authentic way to experience Dawei (or the beaches and villages around the city) you MUST hire Sam.

Sam is serious about sustainable tourism, about ensuring that his work benefits the local community, and about ensuring travelers see the real Dawei. He knows all the secret spots that you would never find on your own and he will help you understand the history of the region. An amazing learning experience, but also so much fun!

We contacted Sam the man through internet during our recent travel in the south of Myanmar, he helped us to book a nice bungalow pretty close to the beach in Maungmagan and gave us a lot of advises for our stay.
He also arranged our travel back to Bangkok (Thailand), booking everything we needed from Maungmagan to the Thai border. Everything was perfect and he took care of us making sure that we had a good travel back. He's a real big professional! so we recommend him highly!
Thanks Sam :)

We visited Dawei with Sam as our guide just a few days ago. He was super professional, considerate, attentive and caring to our group of 12 high schoolers. He showed us around pagodas, beautiful beaches and Dawei city center. The restaurants he recommended offered tasty local food. Sam was also a local historian, introducing detailed history and culture to our students who had learned a lot and enjoyed the experience. Highly recommend Sam if you travel to Dawei!

We had a fantastic day with Sam the Man, whose passion for sustainable tourism and for the town he calls home shined throughout.

Sam was friendly, knowledgable, and always professional. He appears to think carefully about his tours, and balances satisfying the customer with benefiting the local communities.

Sam knows how to provide a good service, and how to tailor a tour to the desires and needs of a customer. He is conscientious and thoughtful, dedicated and hard-working.

Dawei is a brilliant place to explore in Myanmar, and Sam is a brilliant person to help you do just that.

Sam is a wonderful host in showcasing Dawei and the surrounding natural beauty ! He not only strives to show people the authentic Dawei but also makes sure that he himself knows the 'why' - With Sam as your guide, you are sure to have a wonderful experience that will leave you understanding Myanmar just a little bit more :)
