Travellers Reviews

Myanmar Shalom Travels

We arrived back safely …but tired! What a wonderful experience we had during our Myanmar visit, something that we never cease talking about to our friends. We are fortunate to have travelled to many countries in all parts of the world, but nothing even begins to equal the wonder and beauty of our visit to Myanmar, truly an unforgettable experience.

So much of our enjoyment was a result of the care and planning of Myanmar Shalom and of the Samuels, and of their excellent team of guides who so quickly became our friends. Thank you so much for all that you did for us.

Thank you for your email. We should be thanking you for one of the best 3 day trips we’ve taken.  We loved everything about Bagan and we loved all that we did in Yangon. Our guide Soe yee, was a real delight.  He was warm, knowledgeable and he knew how to work the system to get things done.  Our group really loved him and he has our highest recommendation. Thank you for all your efforts.

Your organisation was outstanding. We had been warned that in a country like Myanmar we should be prepared for glitches in our travel but our travel was as smooth and problem free as it could have been. I hope to return to Myanmar in the future to see more of your fascinating country and rest assured we will use Myanmar Shalom to plan our trip.
Keep up the great work you are doing and I trust that our paths will cross again soon. Shalom.

We found Myanmar Shalom to be very professional and efficient, both during the planning of our holiday and in the services provided by your staff and station guides during our two week stay. We also appreciated your affordable services and found everything went very smoothly. We will most certainly recommend you to our family and friends, and hope that some more business will result.

Your leadership role in the Jewish community of Myanmar and your ability to well manage your travel agent is truly amazing. It was such an hour to meet you in Yangon as we have been reading about you and the community in newspapers. We had amazing trip. Your guides & office staff took such a good care for us in each city. Please share our thanks & appreciation to them.

Dear Suzanna

We are back home safely after a wonderful trip. Our tour to Bagan with Myanmar Shalom was a highlight.  What an awesome and spiritual place.  Everything about our tour was first class from start to finish.  We would not change a thing and hope to visit again.  Please feel free to use Rick and I as a reference and we will most definitely recommend you to others.
Thank you,

I have to tell you that our trip to Yangon and Bagan was not only the high point of this trip but also one of the best tours of all of our years of travelling around the world.  The organization was perfect, the hotel and all of the meals were excellent, the guides of the highest caliber and overall was great value for the money we spent.

On behalf of our group I would like to thank you and your family for all of the effort that you put in to making our tour so enjoyable and educational and I know that all of us will recommend your company to of our friends.  Thank you once again and hope to return to Myanmar again one day soon.

Thank you for all your help with organizing our recent trip to Myanmar. I usually would do the trip planning myself, however your professional advice, itinerary, tour cost and excellent communication has made me think again. The trip was fabulous! Our guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. Truly a special country with incredible sights to behold.  I hope more and more people travel to Myanmar as the real gems are its people.

We could not speak highly enough of the tour to Myanmar and the organisation and work done by you and your staff to make the trip the success that it was. The transport/guides/ and program were excellent, it was so well organised with time available for sightseeing and study as well as excellent luncheons. There is no doubt that we will visit Myanmar again and when we do will definitely make arrangements through you. Be assured that we will recommend your company to any of our friends who are travelling to Myanmar. We hope you can manage to look after the synagogue and protect that magnificent Torah.

Kindest regards and our thanks,

Dear Sammy,
We are the ones to say thank you. Myanmar Shalom was the BEST tour company on our 35 day trip cruise. You have the best guide and your company was first class all the way. Thank you. I was going to write this earlier but jet lag took some time to get over. Hope you are doing better, would like to visit Myanmar again, and would only use your company.  THANK YOU.
