Overview
See the highlights of Mandalay and explore Mahamuni Pagoda, local workshops, the Golden Palace Monastery, Kuthodaw Pagoda, and Mandalay Hill on a private tour that offers a personalized introduction to Burma’s last royal capital. Traveling in a climate-controlled vehicle ensures a comfortable day of sightseeing, and choosing a private tour means you’ll cover more ground and learn more than you could on your own or with a group excursion.
Highlights
  • Private full-day tour visits Mandalay’s main attractions in one day
  • Learn about local religion, crafts, and history
  • Great introduction and personalized service for first-time visitors
  • Includes hotel pickup and drop-off
What to Expect
At your hotel in Mandalay, join your driver for the trip to Mahamuni Pagoda, which is among Myanmar’s most significant Buddhist pilgrimage sites. Then continue to a series of local workshops, where craftsmen create stone Buddha sculptures, puppets, wood carvings, and more. You’ll have free time to purchase lunch at a local restaurant before heading to the Royal Palace and Golden Palace Monastery, which offers a fascinating glimpse of the architecture, artistry, and history of the old palace. Visit Kuthodaw Pagoda, a stupa containing hundreds of inscribed marble slabs that are referred to as “the world’s largest book.” Finally, head to the top of Mandalay Hill to watch the lovely Mandalay sunset. This day of exploring Mandalay concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

We did a full day tour of Myanmar and it felt very much like a tour for tourists where we were taken to restaurants and shops meant specifically for tourists and not for locals. We did not really get to experience the local culture and our guide did not offer much explanation

Dear Tara K Thanks millions for taking your own time to rate and write feedback on our services and we really appreciate it. I am really sorry to know that you did not have any chance to go to local places and have local food in Mandalay. You confirmed this tour 3 hours before tour starting time so we need to arrange everything in a very hurry but we could manage to arrange a private tour within a few hours. We have mentioned highlights (where you will have to visit in Mandalay) in our itinerary and you accepted as well. If we had known or let us know in advance ( By email or telling your guide before your tour) that you like to go local places, we would be very willing to bring you local places. For restaurants, we do not bring our clients to local restaurants because if our clients have sensitive stomach, unhygienic food can spoil their wonderful holidays. In Mandalay, we have gold leave making center ( 5 men continuously beat gold bars for 5 hours to become very flat and thin gold leaves to apply to Buddha Image for good deeds) and you could not find this kind of shops around Myanmar. We have handicraft center, tapestry making place and puppet making place in Mandalay. We just want our clients to see and learn how workers are working traditionally so we bring our clients to these places ( we mentioned that you will visit to these shops in itinerary) . But in Myanmar, shop owners never force the tourists to buy products from them. I am afraid to hear that our guide did not offer much explanation for the landmarks you went to. Actually we use professional experienced English speaking guides who are very willing share their knowledge about the places visiting. Thanks to your suggestion , we will ask our guides to explain more and more about the places from now on. Thanks again for your feedback and we noted very well. See you very soon in Myanmar Regards Lin
