The tour was very well planned and our guide put in a lot of effort and did a great job. The only point is that 4.5 hours is not nearly enough to see all the temples in Luang Prabang. Our guide could have told and shown us so much, but unfortunately the tour was already over. All thumbs up!!

We booked these wonderfull 2Day Tour and we were guided from our Guide Vitou.His incredible Knowledge and his positive and happy Attitude were making our Trip perfect! Thank you also for showing us all the good Photo spots!!!!
