We were promised pick up by Minthu who was himself highly rated, but unfortunately, on the day of tour, someone else showed up. He didn't really show us much and took a long break for about 2 hrs (which was fine for the horse but left us at a deserted small village (almost like a zombie town)). We were lucky... More

Their service are good. They're kind and friendly. In Bagan, he took us visit most of the beautiful temples and pagodas and told us a lot about the history of his country.

This mode of transport is entirely in keeping with the gentle pace and tranquillity of Bagan. There is really no other way to see the place. This particular service, owned by two brothers, is sublime - they are friendly, knowledgeable and very welcoming. Support them and they will give you a wonderful holiday

Long before we arrived for our holidays in Myanmar we contacted Min Thu to book his Horse and Cart tour. His response was quick and professional. One of the things that was sure, the second day of our stay at Bagan was planned for a ride! Standing in front of hotel the next morning there was no horse car. So... More

I had read that this mode of seeing the temples is fading away so I did 2 days with Min Thu. The first day of jarring movement for hours was rough on my 60 year old body but the second day was better. When we realized we both had cats at our houses we had an enjoyable 2 days talking... More

I found Min Thu from many good suggestion of backpacker from Viet Nam. He promptly called me after my email asking for more information, to introduce his service even that's the international call to cost him a lot. With that impression, we've chose his service. He gave us many good advice about weather, the hotel we're about to choose, bla... More

I had booked many months previously with Minthu by email and confirmed again a few days before, so was disappointed that he didn't arrive on time and thankfully our hotel was able to phone him. 45 minutes late Minthu's brother arrived, full of apologies however I wonder if we hadn't called would he have turned up. After a late start... More
