using Magado Travel

I am booking a 20 day tour with Magado Travel and they have been somewhat unclear in answering my questions and are changing hotels, but i thought it was because i did not make up my mind fast enough and the hotels they quoted me on were already full.

I am leaving Feb. 4. Should i go with another agency ???

Your comments made me very nervous!

Please advise! Soon!!!

Thanks everybody for the good advise.

We went and have come back from the most interesting travel of my life and MAGADO made it perfect.

They came through on everything and better.

Wonderful guides, drivers & cars. The hotels were in the same class as the ones originally quoted, 3 to 4 stars.

We changed the itinerary during our trip and they made sure that everything worked out.

Also, they charged much less than any other tour operator we checked out!

So, no more Travel Agency from Hell but TRAVEL AGENCY FROM HEAVEN!

I am just back from a 13 day trip to Myanmar - Yangon, Bagan, Inle, Mandalay, Lashio and Pyin Oo Lwin.

To avoid carrying a lot cash I pre-booked all my hotels in Myanmar and a car for the day In Mandalay using Magado Travels and Tours in Yangon.

The bookings were done by email (travel.evisa@gmail.com) and I paid by credit card using their PayPal system.

Magado's service was excellent with emails and queries answered promptly and I was kept up to date with one hotel booking were I was on standby .

Vouchers were hand delivered to me after I passed through immigration at Yangon airport.

I highly recommend Magado Travels and Tours.

Hi, I want to add my voice to those recommending Magado Travels.

I had to arrange a Visa on Arrival (business) for a VIP client within a week and the team at Magado delivered. Thank you Mr Lin and team, without your help our client would have landed at Yangon with an expired guarantor company license!

If you do not want to take a chance on arriving in Yangon and being turned away for a faulty VOA application, I would highly recommend that you ask Magado to check your papers in advance.

Here are the points which we appreciated:

1. Email responses were very swift and in general answered our questions sufficiently. When I called for clarification, Mr Lin answered the phone himself and his sincerity comes through.

2. There was one email with about 6 attachments that did not go completely through, but the fax did not fail.

3. Payment via Paypal.

4. We also contacted two other local agencies for help by email and by phone, but Magado was the only one that said they could help us given the short timeframe.

So - I highly recommend Magado. We slept so much easier.

Indialover - did they pre-arrange your visa for arrival as well or did you go to the embassy to get a visa?
