A Recent Review of this tour

Wonderful guide and experience! Jay did a fantastic job at customizing the tour for us so that we could see the Luang Prabang temples and attractions such as the waterfall at our own pace. He was always energetic and kind, and great at explaining the history of Luang Prabang and Buddhist culture. Highly recommend!
