I highly, highly recommend this tour company. We had just arrived in Myanmar and had nothing put together for our trip. As soon as we walked into their office, we immediately felt at ease, as Hanzar and his staff explained our options in AMAZING ENGLISH and helped us book bus tickets and a hike from Kalaw to Inle Lake . We later found out that they normally book tours for groups but they helped us out anyway! Our bus and hike went flawlessly and we can only credit the amazing contacts of Elate Myanmar Travels and Tours for it. I would gladly work with them again. Thank you all so much! You made our trip to Myanmar seamless and unforgettable;)Daniel Lopez & Melissa Ballarin | U.S.A(August, 2016)

I cannot praise this agency enough. They were recommended by my hotel in Yangon and provided an excellent service from arrival to departure. Easy to work with in arranging an itinerary, they suggested sights and excursions which were not in the guidebooks, but definitely worthwhile. The guides were experienced and knowledge; we especially enjoyed the guide from Bagan to Mandalay, who seemed to take a strong personal interest in ensuring we missed nothing. The owner of the firm, a delightful woman named Hanzar, made sure that everything went smoothly.Steven Henry | U.K (December, 2015)
Finally, their quote for the service was extremely competitive.
I can see why they took their name from "elated" and would definitely use them again.
They provided an excellent service, taking us around the country to both the main sites and many little-known fascinating places. Our guide was superb, very knowledgeable and excellent English, and very patient with my frequent side trips for photography. The company was only established recently, by a charming women named Hanzar, but she seems to be doing all the right things in creating a first class operation at very competitive prices. Highly recommended!Syrie | London (November, 2015)
