Private Burma tours allow you to travel independently, but with the full support of Cox & Kings and with an accompanying expert guide. Discover the highlights of this beguiling country and travel to far flung corners of Burma, exploring areas almost untouched by mass tourism.
Add a beach break to Ngapali or Ngwesaung at the end for a relaxing break, choose your level of accommodation, staying in truly luxurious surroundings, and take a river cruise to view local life on the shores.
We have created suggested itineraries for ease; you are able to book these as they are, tweak them slightly, or create a new itinerary entirely for your own Burmese adventure. Please contact one of our tour consultants to develop your bespoke itinerary.

We have highlighted the standard of accommodation featured on a tour immediately above the tour itinerary.
In some cases, tours include some departures in one category and some in another: you can see and select the different tour types under ‘tour variations’. For these tours, the itinerary is generally the same and just the standard of accommodation varies. However, if there are any variations in the excursions included, these are shown within the itinerary.
Superior: Most Cox & Kings tours fall under this category and are based in 4- or 5-star accommodation, or the best available.
Luxury: These tours will usually feature 5-star de luxe accommodation throughout.
Standard: Simpler in emphasis, these itineraries typically feature 3- and 4-star accommodation throughout.
Discovery: This type of holiday is best suited to the hardier traveller, as it will typically include some quite basic accommodation, possibly longer and rougher road journeys and, in some cases, more arduous activities, such as trekking.
