We found this trip lived up to our expectations. This is a country that is just opening up to tourists and the people although having lived through hard times are friendly, courteous and wanting to interact with tourists.
The activities and sites which we experienced were educational as well as fun.
The biking was moderate as rated and the bus was always available if you did not want to cycle at any time.
The friendliness of the people of Myanmar and the villages where they lived and worked.
Alex was an excellent leader, always friendly, knowledgeable about the history if his country and Buddhism aa well as attentive. He went out of his way to make sure everyone was comfortable with the plans for the day. He worked well with his staff. He had a good sense of humour and we thoroughly enjoyed his leadership.
Be prepared for the heat and just go and enjoy,
Wonderful trip which I would recommend to anyone.
My only word of caution is that you are riding a mountain bike which causes you to be bent forward when riding. If you have a shoulder/neck problem, this type of bike can cause you pain in your shoulders/neck. It can be remedied by having an extender installed in the headset of the mountain bike which will allow you to sit more upright and take the stress off your shoulders. Exodus does not provide these and you should bring one with you which their bike mechanic will install. They cost about $20 Canadian and will make the bike riding on the bumpy roads much more enjoyable.
The Burmese people .
Moderate difficulty. Good for us 70 year olds. Excellent accomodations throughout and food locations suggested by "Alex",our lead guide. Wonderful and attentive crew. Would accommodate all our extra needs (handling shopping items). Great route selection through rural Myanmar. Could really appreciate the local culture.
Serenity of the countryside and friendliness of the Burmese people.
"Alex" was excellent.
Be prepared physically. Weather is very hot
Very highly recommend this trip.
No, a quality local hire bike is included in the overall price of this cycling holiday.
If you prefer the familiarity of your own bike, you may of course bring it along. A discount of GBP150 will apply if you do so.
