– Volker Stanzel (Germany)

Voilà déjà 20 jours que nous sommes rentrés de Birmanie ; le temps passe vraiment trop vite. !! Nous gardons un excellent souvenir de notre voyage . J’ai , personnellement , beaucoup apprécié la visite et la rencontre des habitants des villages ethniques à l’est du pays.

– Gennevieve Lempereur (Belgium)

The only thing we regret is that we did not stay longer.  You had done a great job for us, booking flights and hotels and arranging for us to be taken care of by friendly and well-informed guides and good drivers.
