Need a quick intro to the city? Toss aside your guidebook and instead get the Bagan scoop straight from those who know it best: the locals who live here!
Join us for a casual meet-up starting in front of New Wave Guest House. From there, we’ll ride a horse-drawn carriage to a local tea shop, where you can grab some snacks to enjoy on board our boat ride (at your own expense, but your local friend can give you some recommendations and tips on what to get).
Then, we’ll head over to Ayar Jetty and hop aboard for a sunset cruise along the Ayeyarwady River (also known as the Irrawaddy River). We’ll float along for about 90 minutes, and you’ll be free to chat with new friends, make some plans together for later on, and ask any questions you like of our knowledgeable Bagan expert.
Think of it as a tour, meet-up, and info desk all rolled into one — get the tips you need to know from those who are in-the-know, then kick back and relax with some new friends in a new city. There’s no better way to tap into local life in Bagan!
Inclusions: Local English-speaking expert to answer all your questions, boat ride and horse-drawn cart fare.
Exclusions: Transportation to and from the meet-up point, food and drinks.
Your Trip: As this is a meet-and-greet with other travellers and not a standard tour, the size of the group may be more than our typical Urban Adventures limit of 12 people.
Confirmation of booking: “Locals on Tap” tours are meet-up experiences and therefore require a minimum of four (4) people to be booked on any given tour. Should there be fewer than four (4) travellers booked on your chosen date, you will be notified by email two (2) days prior to the date of your booked tour and provided alternative tour options. Otherwise if you don't hear from us and have your voucher, your booking is confirmed. We'll see you at the meeting point. Get in touch if you have any concerns or require more information via the email address or phone number (business hours only) on your voucher.
Child Policy: This is a child-friendly experience. Children between the ages of 6 and 11 inclusively are permitted at the rate listed above. Please select ‘child’ above when booking. Children under the age of 6 are permitted to join free of charge. Please inform us at the time of booking if you’ll be bringing a child under the age of 6. You can do so in the special request box on the checkout page.
