    It was a very varied trip with lots of great moments. The Cope museum was especially thought provoking. The somewhat creepy caves were good. The night markets very interesting. It was made even better by the fun nature of my fellow travellers, very good... Read more

    This was a really interesting country to visit. However, it takes long flights to get there. I only went for the week (my choice) but I would recommend that this is taken with another i.e. Vietnam or Cambodia.

    I think the trip could be extended as there is a lot to see and do in Luang Prabang and not enough time to fit it all in. Have a 10 day stay in Laos not 8 days.

    This was a fantastic tour. 9 days is a bit short, but most people linked it with Vietnam and Cambodia.

    Overall there were not many activities included and too much ‘free time’ which seemed like a poor way of organising a guided tour rather than an assortment of activities that could’ve been included especially many more ‘highlights’ of Laos. Tour guide was... Read more
