We had a 6-day private tour with Eric, who drove us across Laung Prabang, Vang Vieng to Vientiane. With a good command of English and local knowledge, he took care of us and made the whole trip an awesome experience for us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for your kind feedback. I am pleased you enjoyed your tour and were happy with service provided

Eric was very knowledgeable. He provided insider information about the locals we visited (Vientiane, Vang Vieng, Phonsavan, and Plain of Jars). Where to stay, where to eat, what to do and don't, what to see, and observation of the locals, without intruding. We learned much about Lao people and the country side. Several unplanned stops at country markets were truly memorable. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ky Nguyen, thank you for the wonderful time we all had in Laos and the lifelong memories traveling with you

Eric were friendly, on time and we feel save driving with him in the busy traffic of Vientianne. Eric gave as such a great insigt into a bit of the history and culture of Laos and its people. He was very patient and so considerent while waiting for us when we explore the sites, the car was aleady cooled down when we got back after a very hot walk in the heat. We had a really good day visiting interesting places. We truly recommend Eric! Thank you very much.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for submitted my review service, I have wonderful day guiding and driving with you around Vientiane.

Eric was a great tour guide! He was always early and more than happy to accommodate anything extra or different from the planned tour that my partner and I wanted to do. Being from Laos, he offers a unique perspective on the Lao culture and way of life and we were always fascinated by his stories. All the best Eric! Cheers.

Eric was great. My main reason to visit Laos was to see the Plain of Jars. Eric grew up in this region, and took us to locations that I am sure few tourists visit. Wonderful. His office is in the capital city of Vientiane and his knowledge of this area was very good as well. The reason for the 4 star rating is that he was not as experienced in Luang Prabang (which I am sure he now is). I would use Eric again, and if you are lucky enough to schedule Mr Lee as the driver, its even better.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank robert for you review, hope to improve my guiding in Luangprabang area
