We booked a hotel pick up in Bagan. We got confirmation email that we should wait at the hotel's reception 30 minutes prior departure, which was 7pm... We came to the reception at 6:20 just to be told that the driver left 5 minutes ago... like what? When we called the company, they refused to come back for us so we had to take taxi to the station... When we got there, we were told the departure is posponed one hour... but the good news was that the van was replaced by normal bus so the journey was okay...

We paid for a bus but we got a minivan instead which was like a furnace and only stopped for one toilet break 1 hour into the trip. Driver could’ve drove a bit safer as the seat belts didn’t even work. A bit disappointed as our first trip with the company went really well and they were very helpful, adequate breaks, safe driving, nice temperature in the bus etc. But I don’t recommend Bagan to Inle with this company. Yangon to Bagan is fine as you get a large coach.

One week before departure the operator (Bagan Minn Thar company) has changed the car type for this route to a 14 seater minivan instead of the normal bus. We saw the bus we would originaly ride (iT seemed overbooked so therefore they changed us to the minivan, which was bit strange because we booked like half a Year a go) The minivan was really less luxurious then the normal bus. You dont have space and you cant change the Seat position. The minivan is absolutely no option for people who are almost 2 meters long. There was no compensation/refund for the less comfortable ride we had. The positive points: the driver did a good job and the road was much bettet than we’ce experienced before
bus VIP, Bagan Min Tha, Jan 7, 2019
The driver was in a very dangerous hurry on the road and made us arrive at 4 am instead of 5 am... Very inconvenient when you cannot check-in your hotel at that time. The A/C was full on all the time and made the ride extremely cold, especially in the mountains. You guys need to calm down.
van Regional 14pax, Bagan Min Tha, Dec 24, 2018
Dirty crowed van. Luggage on top to get full of dust and sand. Bad restaurant stop. Needed a toilet not a squat. Need much improvement.
van Regional 14pax, Bagan Min Tha, Nov 24, 2018
It was unexpected to have mini bus instead of normal one, luggage was on the roof and all dirty because of the sand on the road. Please add cover next time
