The tour was excellent. My guide Yai has a passion for his subject and no stone is left unturned. I chose an eight day tour, and in addition followed in the footsteps of my father R W Kennard MC who fought for with the 1st Battalion Seaforths during the months of the battle. Yai was thorough and unstinting in this my personal quest and we sought out remote villages where my father had been engaged. Yai was extremely well informed and always patient, courteous, and sensitive. I cannot recommend Battle of Imphal Tours more strongly.

An extraordinarily interesting week from Imphal to Moreh and down the Tedim Rd and then to Kohima. Yai was a wonderfully interesting and helpful expert on WW2 and other historical and cultural aspects of the NE - an encylopedia of knowledge. He tailored the tour very effectively. Mr Farooque the driver was also very helpful. Recommend Yai's tours without reservation.

We did the full WW2 Burma battlefield tour starting at Dimapur in India and finishing at the Sittang bridge in Myanmar. Took around 16 fabulous days. Well planned by Yai and all was smooth. Extra bonus was the cruise down the Irrawaddy river picking out battle sights in a unique way.

My father-in-law served in Burma and India during WW2 and we were keen to visit some of the places where he was stationed to learn more. Our trip to Imphal and Kohima took some planning and we hoped that our guide would not disappoint. We need not have worried. Yai proved to be the very best of guides. He was extremely knowledgeable and brought all the reading to life. Nothing was too much trouble and the tour was tailored to our needs. Yai was always mindful of our comfort and safety and we could not have wished for more. We would therefore happily recommend him without reservation.

Yai was an excellent tour guide and brought to life for us the forgotten battlefields of Imphal and Kohima. He is a published author and very knowledgeable on every aspect of the history, including the experience of local Manipuris and Nagas at the time. I would highly recommend Yai's service to anyone looking to learn more about this crucial turning point in the history of 20th century Asia. My only regret is that we did not stay longer to see more of Manipur.
