Owned by a German and his local wife, this company runs cruises between Mandalay and Bagan (four days, three nights single/double from €2045/2614). There's also the option of a six-night Mandalay–Bhamo cruise. Its two medium-sized teak boats each have seven comfy cabins and are traditionally styled but recently built.

The company also runs a local charity, the Amara Foundation, which supports projects in the Ayeyarwady Delta region.
