Inside Burma Tours

About InsideBurma Tours

Take the holiday of a lifetime with InsideBurma Tours. Part of market-leading InsideAsia Tours we are a destination specialist tour operator, offering unique group tours, tailored travel and fabulous cultural experiences that few get the chance to discover.

Our team are experts in travel across the region. We've explored every corner of the country to make sure your trip is as good as it possibly can be. Our 'get beneath the surface' ethos means we seek out the unique experiences that make the difference between simply seeing the sights and learning to love Burma and its people like we do.

It was the incredible "otherness" of Asia that inspired directors Simon King and Alastair Donnelly to start a travel company. Having both spent the previous three years teaching English in Japan, they wanted to give others the chance to experience and discover a part of the world they had both fallen in love with. That was back in 2000 and our "get beneath the surface" ethos was born.

The InsideBurma Concept

When planning a holiday we believe that what really matters is that you get the best advice possible from people with real expertise and experience of the places you will be visiting. We combine our first-hand knowledge of the country with a deep appreciation of what our clients enjoy to create great journeys that we know you'll love.

Our travel consultants have many years collective experience of living and working in Asia, and have all travelled widely through Burma. We send people out to Burma several times each year to make sure we are up to date with all the changes that are happening in the country - the modern world is arriving quickly here so it's important to keep on top of all the exciting developments!

Whether you are planning on taking one of our accompanied tours or plan to travel on an itinerary tailored just for you, we will offer you first class service and great value for money. With English-speaking partner offices across the region, you can rest assured that we are with you every step of the way and that you know at all times exactly who you are dealing with.
