We paid about US$25 per day for the services of 2 guys and this old Corolla. Neither had any training, but were excellent guides in and around Mandalay. They tried really hard to provide us with all the services of a good driver and guide team. These guys were actually unofficially attached to our hotel, The Sedona, and it was quite comical to be ceremoniously delivered to the front door of the rather swish hotel in a battered old car which was arguably older than us!

We found this a convenient and easy way to get around, particularly the sites outside the city. They also delivered us at the airport at the end of our 2 days with them.

At the end of our trip, we both agreed that these few days had been amongst our most enjoyable. We ensured that the guide and driver ate meals with us, and had many good laughs together. We were very impressed with their efforts, and overall standard of service.
