Ascend to a height of over 3,000 feet above sea level to the visit charming Pyin Oo Lwin, a town that blends the East and West. Board a train for a scenic journey across the Gokteik Viaduct and travel over a nearly 100 feet deep gorge. Discover Pindaya Cave, home to more than 8,000 Buddha statues. In Bagan, pause to take in the unforgettable sunset over the plains from the upper terrace of one of the temples. Discover Mt.

        I am generally satisfied with Collette's service and is why I have travelled with them several times.
      • Tour
        A very interesting tour though we could have had better briefings before each day's activity.
    • THE GOOD AND THE NOT SO GOOD.

        TOUR GUIDE WAS GREAT, BUT THERE WERE SOME PROBLEMS. THE ITINERARY WASNT VERY CLEAR, MANY PEOPLE THOUGHT THERE WERE TOURS THE FIRST AND LAST DAY. PEOPLE WERE FRUSTRATED BY SEEING TOO MANY PAGODAS,WHILE BEAUTIFUL, ONE HAD TO TAKE SHOES AND SOCKS OFF.. 5 IN ONE DAY IS JUST OVERKILL. THE TOUR INCLUDED AN AMAZING AMOUNT OF MEALS, AND MANY WERE IN PLACES THAT WE PROBABLY WOULDNT GO INTO, BUT WERE FINE. THE TOUR WAS ALSO WAY TOO BUSY, GETTING IN AT 9PM AND LEAVING IN THE MORNING WAS EXHAUSTING. THE HOTELS WERE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, PEOPLE WANTED TO SPEND SOME TIME IN THEM!! THIS WAS A FIRST COLLETTE TOUR FOR ONE WOMAN WHO SAID SHE WOULD NEVER TAKE ANOTHER ONE.

    • collette myanmar trip downgraded, watered down....

      • Service
        Guide didn't show up for initial meeting and was not available until the first day morning!! Hotels were changed/downgraded (without the knowledge of the guide!!) he kept saying that he didn't know. Included food was horrible! But when I ordered and paid from my own pocket I found out how delicious the Myanmar food can be! Visit with the local family was very bad experience. After they started to "mix drinks" (orange syrup/concentrate - with water poured from a "jar") ...after seeing how they washed/cleaned all them bowl/plates in a two gallon pot of cold water outside, many travellers lost appetite. As much as we all appreciated the local family and their hospitality... only few very, very brave travellers dared to drink the mix and eat the food. Dinner at Kalaw hilll lodge was the “most memorable” experience, food was icy cold and after we complained, the server said “it was cold outside..” Hungry and cold we came to our rooms. Room was very, very cold, but there was a "hot-water-bottle” in my bed… (How lucky I was…. I only paid about $500/day for this experience..) There was 3hrs long trip by train that had two classes; cattle class with wooden benches and the "upper-class" with upholstered seats. We were travelling in cattle class on wooden benches, because Colette didn't purchase the “people-class” Guide didn’t have “whispers”, he just talked to whoever was around, and we had the choice, either to run, fight for the position around him to hear what he had to say, or just walk around on our own! There were no washroom stops on 3 –4 hr bus rides!
