Annie & Peter Deakin

Two years ago we booked our first river cruise we had seen advertised in a local newspaper.  This was the Avalon Myanmar Cruise, sailing in February 2018.  Previously our overseas holidays were usually based on bus tours or rental car, but this Myanmar cruise has definitely changed our minds.

Upon stepping off the plane at Yangon we were met by our guide Dorothy who took us to our very nice Hotel in Sule where we stayed for 2 nights, then flew to Bagan with Dorothy & other ‘shipmates’ to be met by Mark Nicholls, our Tour Director, then travelled by coach to our beautiful home for the next 10 days.

We wish to say that Mark was exceptional in his knowledge of the country we were in, and making the voyage the best holiday we have ever had.  He, Dorothy & all the crew bent over backwards to make us all feel special. Mark’s attention to detail was evident. Every day was full of interesting places to see and people to meet. Some evenings we had entertainment, also talks and dvd’s on Myanmar life.  We loved our holiday and would go back again but there is a big wide world out there to visit. 

We have no hesitation in recommending Mark and his company True Vacations to anyone wishing to book a cruise – it is the best way to travel.  You’ll be treated like royalty.

We wish Mark all the best for his new endeavour.
