What people are saying about Yangon Region

Really enjoyed this trip, started at a local street food market, then on to a typical noodle shop + quite a few others and finally the infamous 19th Street. My guide was Matthew - he was really lovely, his English was very good and he was interesting to talk to - I would recommend taking this tour. It was nice and relaxed, never felt rushed. In hindsight I would have had a late breakfast or brunch to leave more room for all the food you get to eat, I was stuffed by the end!

Excellent tour with a lot of tasting and a friendly guide. good food, good talks and good laughter. can highly recommend the tour to anyone. also to mention that I couldn't attend my first appointment because got sick on short notice. they offered me to move it to another day. much appreciated!

We were a small group of three people. Matthew showed us great food spots in Downtown Yangon. We enjoyed his company and learned not only about the food we tasted, but also about Myanmar history and culture. I can recommend this tour without hesitation. It was a fun evening.

Well worth the time and money. Good introduction into Myanmar food, which also includes influence from India and China. Very open and good local guide who is willing to talk about both the good side and improvements that should be made in Myanmar.

the guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and the food was outrageously good. he took us to authentic local places we would not have been able to find or navigate on our own.
