This is a wonderful trip


This is a wonderful trip with an inspired itinerary, something I would like to shout from the rafters. I had been to Myanmar before 2002, but I gained so much more from this second visit and the chance to see parts of Myanmar that were off limits in 2002.

Excellent Service


We contacted TopAsiaTour a few months before our arrival date. Ms. Rebecca is very helpful and she responded by email in a short time. We(4 people) visited Myanmar for 7 days, Yangon, Bagan, and Mandalay in Oct.
We were satisfied with their good service because they provided good hotels, good airlines, very professional guides and very nice drivers in each city.
We highly recommend TopAsiaTour and we will use their service again.

We have been planning a trip with Top Asia Tour for the past few weeks. 3 girlfriends and I are traveling to Thailand in January. We started looking at big bus trips, since we don’t know the country or language but didn’t like the restrictions of doing only what they had on their itinerary. I research trips thoroughly and discovered Top Asia Tour. Again, I researched them as much as possible but didn’t find any red flags so started working with Joyce. What a wonderful experience! She is very professional and pleasant. She adjusted our itinerary, answered all questions, and organized an amazing trip. She answered promptly. I was a little hesitant about working with a company in China, but the deposit was made through PayPal which made me feel better. I will post again when we return, but I anticipate a fabulous trip. Thank you, Joyce, for all your help! I hope I can work with you again in the future.
