“The tour of San Sebastian with Tomasz was just as I had hoped, educational and enjoyable. After a very friendly greeting in good English he started out by giving us an overview of the area plus the historical background. We then started our walk which included not only sights and explanations of traditions, but also the participation in a street game. Both my duaghter (13 years) and me were very glad to have gone on the walking tour with Tomas. And oh yes, I was told there is no minimum requirement of participants, so even though we ended up to be four, my daughter and me could have had a “private“ tour.”
ITINERARY

You’ll meet your guide bright and early, and pick up your bike and helmet for the ride (don’t worry, your guide will help you select the right size for you!). You’ll get a quick lesson on safety, including proper practices and hand signals, as well as an overview of where we’ll be riding to. Then, we’re off! 

We’ll start our adventure by exploring the village of Taungbe, which is a community of horse-drawn cart drivers.  We’ll have about half an hour to bike around the village, and you’ll get to visit a small morning market and meet with a local family, who will share with you their story of local life in Myanmar. We’ll also visit a 150-year-old wooden monastery that’s in the village. 

From there, we’ll cycle for about 10 more minutes to reach Ananda Pahto, the most famous temple in Bagan thanks to its mural paintings and gorgeous ancient architecture. 

After another short ride, we’ll will arrive at the spectacular Shwegugyi Paya. How spectacular is it? Well, its name translates to “Great Golden Cave,” so we’re going to say it’s pretty spectacular. Keep the camera handy! 

We’ll then ride about another 20 minutes to reach the next village, Myingabar, which is famous for its bamboo products. From there, it’s a 15-minute ride past toddy palm trees to reach Dhammayangyi Pagoda — the largest Buddhist temple in Bagan. 

Feeling peckish from all that pedalling? Good! We’ll ride 30 minutes to Nyaung U for lunch a local restaurant that is a famous for many different cuisines which employed the local young people. You’ll dig into local delicacies that also help a good cause, before biking back to the start point and bidding goodbye to your Bagan tour.
