The first thing I want to say is we were so LUCKY to meet IAN! I don't even want to imagine what our experience of Bagan would be if we had not hired Ian as our guide!!! Where do I start? Honestly I think none of my words can truly express what it was like to spend 2 days with Ian and his amazing team! The best to describe my feelings -pure magic in the air and Ian is the magician in charge of the show!!! Every little detail was wowing us to a higher point. So much thought, so much care, so much love to provide the best service and the best memories for his guests - thats what Ian does, thats his style,nothing less! He is a very hardworking MAN on a mission, touching everyone around him with big heart and sharing his wisdome. Me and my girlfriend hired Ian as a photographer as well and he did amazing photos of us along the way. The Private meditation in one of the Pagodas in the morning and soulful conversations about buddhism and life just added more meaning to all of the beauty surrounding us. I am saying a lot of general words here, because I know that whatever Ian did for us will not be the same compared to what is he gonna do for you, there for does not matter what activities exactly we did, you gonna have YOUR special magical time when Ian will put together a tour for you according to your preferences. Summarising it all, if you are reading this review STOP reading it and CONTACT IAN NOW before he gets booked on the days you arrive to Bagan! he works privately with small groups of people providing the best customised VIP LUXURY experience that is absolutely PRICELESS! its unique !its one of a kind! its a hidden gem of Bagan! I am 1000000 times grateful for sweet memories we had in Bagan with Ian and his team! Agree with other reviews - its probably by far THE BEST TOUR experiences in my LIFE!!!
