Two weeks in Myanmar - Travel guide and driver or not?

Jump to last reply

Hello,

We'll be in Myanmar for two weeks in August. In Yangon, then Bagan, to Mt. Popa, back to Bagan, Mandalay, then to Inle lake, and back to Yangon for a night.

We booked our flights and hotels through our agency and they've offered a driver and guide, or a private boat when necessary for the entire trip for approximately $1400.

Does this seem worthwhile/needed? I assume we'll need a driver in Bagan and for excursions outside Mandalay.

Is it worthwhile booking and paying in advance or are we better or doing it when there?
