"When we decided to go to Myanmar we researched over 30 travel agents in Yangon and through a process of elimination, we chose Myanmar Elite for the following reasons –

† Their depth of knowledge of Myanmar, particularly the areas “off the beaten track”, was crucial and enabled us to have a worry free holiday

† It was the only organization able to accommodate our itinerary into a workable tour

† Henry, our guide, was very knowledgeable & affable with a great attention to detail

† On reflection, we could not have done what we did as independent travellers

† It was excellent value for money!”

We can recommend this travel agency to anyone interested in a reliable and competent partner. We have already travelled twice with this company. Last year, in November 2005 for example, we travelled through Myanmar for four weeks with six persons and everything was very well organized. The choice of hotels was extraordinary as well as the flights, the cars and the drivers.

"On my last trip to ASIA, where I visited Myanmar, I've decide to organize my tour with an agency from Yangon to avoid being with a group tour. I usually travel alone and I know my interests, when I visit a specific country. Thanks to MELITE TOURS, I was totally rewarded for my choice; they found answers to all my needs.

The result was one of the most comfortable and secure trips I ever made in my life. The quality of drivers , cars, hotels and discretion of guides through the tour was excellent

For anyone who needs a personalised tour, contact Melitetour for a memorable voyage in this beautiful smiling country.

"I came across Myanmar Elite Tours when searching the Internet for information on tours in the country. I was impressed by the presentation and contacted the company to see what might be possible for my family. Their prompt and very helpful response gave me confidence to proceed with booking through them. Their regular updates on progress with the booking also helped me trust the company more. I was impressed right from my arrival in Yangon, when having missed our connection and so arriving later than expected, the guide was still there waiting to greet us. From that moment on, we were very well looked after as we travelled around Yangon and Mandalay. The guides we had were flexible if we wanted to suggest changes to an itinerary. The team's sole aim was for us to enjoy our time in Myanmar - and that we certainly did. I wholeheartedly recommend the company to any prospective traveller to the country."

It was the first time for me to visit Myanmar. Before I started I tried to find an agency in Switzerland, but I was not satisfied and therefore I decided to find an agency directly in Myanmar. Elite travel answered very fast to my questions and sent me an offer in a high quality and with all the information I asked for. Compared with other agencies Elite.... seemed to be very serious and they understood what I wanted and the way I wanted to travel. Well, I decided to book my vacation with Elite .... and hoped in advance that this would be a good decision. It was. When I arrived they picked me up and also during my whole trip I always felt safe and well cared. Due to the fact that I travelled alone I was very thankful that they always called me when I changed my place and they always felt responsible that I felt well and that I could see what I wanted to see.

If it is possible I will return one day to Myanmar and for me it is clear that I will book my next trip again with Elite ..... For all foreigner travellers I fully can recommend to book the trip with Elite ..... . Beside the fact that they care, they know their business so that you get the most for your money and time.

I was in Myanmar for a week or so on a short program arranged by Umyo, and I have the highest recommendation for his services. I found Umyo to be very professional, organized, flexible, welcoming and knowledgeable from the initial contact via email to the very end of my stay in Myanmar. I selected Myanmar Elite Tours (over 5 or 6 other agencies) based on Umyo's responsiveness, efficient communication and reasonable pricing, and I was not disappointed upon arriving in Myanmar. I was very pleased with the services provided by the different station guides (Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay and Inle), the accommodation and the very smooth manner in which my trip progressed. Overall, I had a very interesting time in Myanmar and have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Umyo & Myanmar Elite Tours to other travellers.

Arrived as Guests...Departed as Friends

Mingala Ba Umyo & May Myo,

When I was surfing the net looking for a travel agent in Myanmar there were numerous to choose from. I had emailed about 8 travel agents and you were amongst 3 who were prompt in replying but your attentiveness and warm correspondence steered me your way.

My sister-in-law, my wife and I would like very much to thank you and your beautiful wife May Myo for an awesome 2 week trip in Myanmar that was planned and itinerarized by both of you.

The regular calls we received from you at our destinations were simply beyond words. The guides and drivers you picked, Kyaw Kyaw and Kopok in Bagan, Kyaw Kyaw and Zaw in Mandalay, Mya Mya and Thuay in Heho were excellent. We felt the 2 weeks weren't enough for a full Myanmar tour hence we are looking forward to another trip back.

Lastly your personal attention and accompaniment when we were in Yangon is very much appreciated and priceless.

We have related our travel experience in Myanmar with our relatives and friends.....nothing short of a Wonderful stay!

Keep up the good work and hope the forthcoming tourist season is in abundance. Chezutinbadeh!

If someone is a real traveler who respects him/herself, he/she must definitely visit Myanmar! If someone wants to enjoy his/her vacation in Myanmar , he/she must contact Myanmar Elite Travel!

Wir sind gerade wieder zu Haus nach einer zweiwöchigen Rundreise im Januar 2008 durch Myanmar, die Myanmar Elite Tours für uns organisiert hat.

Wir haben uns für Myanmar Elite Tours bzw. Umyo und May Myo entschieden, weil ihr Angebot mit einem sehr gutes Preis- Leistungsverhältnis genau unseren Vorstellungen entsprach. Alle unsere ergänzenden Wünsche und Änderungen wurden entsprechend umgesetzt.

Unsere Erwartungen wurden noch weit übertroffen, Organisation und Abwicklung der Reise waren perfekt, die Wahl der Hotels, Tourbegleiter und Fahrer hätten nicht besser sein können.

Myanmar mit seinen freundlichen Menschen, interessanten Bauwerken und abwechslungsreichen Landschaften ist mehr als eine Reise wert!

Wir danken May Myo und Umyo für den wunderschönen Urlaub.

We are home again after a two week tour in January 2008 to Myanmar which was organized by Myanmar Elite Tours. We have decided in favour of Myanmar Elite Tours, respectively Umyo and May Myo because their offer meets our ideas exactly with a reasonable price. All our supplementary wishes and changes were realized at once. Our expectations were exceeded; organisation and operating of the journey were perfect, the choice of the hotels, tour guides and drivers could not have been better.

Myanmar with his friendly people, interesting buildings and lovely landscapes is more worth than one journey!

We thank May Myo and Umyo for the lovely holiday.

"I remember you as a real friend and I thank you one more time for the beautiful tour. We have recommended your agency to all our friends ... and I hope they will contact you. If someone need references, you can send them my e-mail address and they can contact me."

It was the second time for me to visit Myanmar. I chose a long and complicated itinerary by myself, and Umyo/Melite Tours found answers to all my needs and arrange the tour with great competence, professionality and also with reasonable pricing. We were very pleased with the services provided by the different station guides. Everything was very well organized, without any problem. Every time we changed our place they called us to know if we were satisfactory. It was one of the most memorable and comfortable trips I ever made in my life.
I'd recommend Umyo/Melite Tours to anyone who needs a personalised tour in Myanmar.

Dear Umyo,
it is good to be back home but a part of our heart has decided to remain in Myanmar to continue sharing the emotions given by landscapes, religious places and most of all by contacts with Burmese people.

We did not expect to receive so much from our trip but it is honest and correct on our part to recognize that all this has been obtained mainly thanks to the way you have organized our voyage.

Our feeling was as we had been taken by hand to visit in each area the most interesting places, to listen to the appropriate explanations and to put us in touch with local people of all ages .

I hope to be in the position to promote, among my friends and acquaintances, future trips to Myanmar under the guide and control of the "Great Umyo".

Thanks to you and your beautiful wife for your kindness and many kisses to your beautiful and smart daughter

Our trip to Myanmar was the most pleasant surprise!

We went there on our honeymoon, & I was lucky enough to have my husband planning the destinations as a surprise for me.

The service managed by Umyo and provided by Winbo & Ei Ei -our guides- was amazing! It made everything easy for us. They took us to very special places & explained everything to us with excessive patience & detail, they answered all our questions very kindly & even helped us finding good spots for pictures and taking some for us as well!! They managed to show us a very charming side of Myanmar by always giving us options during the tours. The hotels we stayed in were very
comfortable & super clean.

Myanmar is an amazing place with a ton of things to learn, see, taste & enjoy...

We're happy to say that we arrived there with an arranged tour & three booked guides, but we left with amazing experiences, lovely memories, three new friends & an urge to return to Myanmar.

Thank you!!

We selected Myanmar Elite Tours due to the prompt response from Umyo and the professionalism and knowledge demonstrated by him. We really enjoyed our tour around Yangon (2 nights) and Inle Lake (2 nights) from 14 Mar till 18 Mar 2011. Everything were well organized inclusive of hotels, transfers and station guide. We kind of like the unexpected cool weather we experienced in Inle Lake which was abnormal during summer. We prefer cool rather than warm weather so that was a bonus for the trip. I will not hesitate to recommend Myanmar Elite Tours to anyone who would like to visit Myanmar. Once again thank you Umyo for such a memorable trip.
