We had a wonderful and fantastic new year holiday in Myeik. Thanks to you all for a very professional and caring services from your travel agency, for arranging our flights and hotel. You guys are very responsive.
The hotel you recommended is absolutely great! They are very friendly and accomodating to our needs. They picked up and dropped us off at the airport and adding to that they also arranged a wonderful trip to jackfruit island.
Again, thank you for the recommendation! We will definitely recommend your services to our friends and acquaintances.
Happy New Year! Wishing you all the very best.

Best regards,
Chris and Nidia

We so enjoyed working with ACL and were delighted with the private custom package they put together for us, well within our budget. The guides were all accommodating and very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. Hotels excellent, great locations and met our American standards. We had so many personal experiences. In Bagan we did a Rotary service project of buying food for a month to feed 74 orphaned boys. In Mandalay I had the opportunity to assist in feeding monks at a College monastery. In Mogok we were invited to have lunch at a relative’s home of our guide. We truly had the opportunity of being and enjoying the warm friendly people of Myanmar and getting to know their fascinating culture.
The office personal of ACL, offer good and prompt communication via email and spoke good English with our phone calls. I highly recommend using this company.

We had such an enjoyable time in Myanmar, the country far exceeded our expectations and I hope that we can make another trip in the near future.

What really made the trip special are the guides that you provided for us. They were all knowledgeable and showed a genuine desire to share the Myanmar culture. Transportation was first rate. Cars were well maintained and drivers safe. Accommodations were what we requested as well. We can highly recommend Viewpoint in Bagan and Bayview in Inle. Panorama was as we requested and adequate for a one night stay in Yangon.

I also want to thank you for your prompt responses to my many requests. In the end, after consulting with 4 different travel agents, I chose ACL because of your prompt and detailed responses. I knew we made the right choice when you hadn't received the wire transfer, yet were so patient and accommodating while I dealt with the situation in the US from Shanghai! I will post on Trip Advisor about my great experience with ACL.

Jezuba, I hope to be contacting you soon to plan our next trip!

We have considered your company has organized an excellent holiday for our family. Using tour guides who are from the local area has meant the guides have been able to recommend restaurant and provides information at our request. The guides have all been excellent and the transport has been excellent. All of this has been helpful in providing a very interesting holiday to a fantastic county.

We have recently returned from a 9 night / 10 day holiday in Myanmar. Our group consisted of my wife, our two sons aged 25 and 23 and myself. We used a local travel company called Asia Central Link Co. LTD ( ACL )They helped us plan the trip and provided a very detailed itinerary from Yangoon- Bagan- Mandalay- Pindaya- Inle- Yangoon. The trip include transport in an air-conditioned people carrier with a driver, local, English speaking guides for each destination, 3* accommodation, including breakfast, 3 internal flights, a 3 day / 2 night river cruise aboard the Irrawaddy Princess II and a complimentary farewell meal. Each place we visited had a full itinerary for local places of interest and were explained in the greatest of detail by our helpful guides.
When it came to the end of the holiday, ACL asked us to complete an evaluation form about every aspect of the holiday, which our group did together to ensure we included everyone's perspective. We rated everything as excellent, which I am sure you will appreciate takes some doing for a tour company.
In terms of planning the trip ACL, were very helpful and flexible; there was a sense of good timing and efficiency when planning and then delivering the holiday.

We would highly recommend the use of Asia Central Link CO. LTD.

Very impressed by A.C.L – Guides were almost always waiting at airport with clear signs which made the trip hassle-free. Appreciated a checkup care half way through trip. It would be a good idea to give customers a list of tours & prices. That, A.C.L can organize in each location as soon as customers are met. We used locally arranged guides as information was clearer and pricing sensible.
