    This was an enjoyable day tour that is worthwhile doing when in Luang Prabang. Lunch was a buffet at the elephant conservation park, with a good variety of local and western food. The amount of time at each stop about right. The price of the tour was good value for money. It was a small group tour of 15 people in a minibus. My only criticism is that we did not get much information from the guide.

What people are saying about Luang Prabang

This was an enjoyable day tour that is worthwhile doing when in Luang Prabang. Lunch was a buffet at the elephant conservation park, with a good variety of local and western food. The amount of time at each stop about right. The price of the tour was good value for money. It was a small group tour of 15 people in a minibus. My only criticism is that we did not get much information from the guide.

Both the boat trip and the locations were very convincing. The boat driver and guide were competent and made us feel safe. One should move away from information. I very much doubt that people over the age of 80 can do this tour.

Tour guide was very good at providing information about sites we were going to, looking after everyone as there were 2 groups as they were one guide short. Lunch was delicious.

Top notch. A hell of a lot packed into the day, but didn't feel rushed or overwrought. One of the better tour type things I've been on actually, and our guide Oddy was great.

Perfect. It’s a good way to see around when you don’t have a long stay in the city. Good guide with beautiful places. Let’s go ... No hesitation.
