RV Pandaw II
Bagan

The Pandaw II is a replica of a colonial era river steamer with an ultra shallow hull, allowing access to remote locations and previously unexplored areas. The boat is constructed in a traditional 1920s style with spacious air-conditioned cabins leading off external walk ways, finished in teak and brass. Main and upper deck cabins are spacious with en suite bathrooms, mini-safe, luggage storage, wardrobe and a writing desk. All upper and main deck cabins have their own deck space with traditional Myanmarese rattan table and chairs outside the cabins. All meals are served in the dining room on the Main Deck, breakfast is a buffet, and lunch and dinner are a la carte. Meals are a fusion of Asian and Western cuisine, Pandaw's policy is to use as much locally purchased produce as possible to help the economies of the villages and towns along the route. The sundeck has rattan loungers and a 24 hour honesty bar. The Pandaw is a very comfortable boat with exceptional but discreet service and intrepid, adventurous excursions.

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.

Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim.

I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
