Date: Mar 5/20

We had a wonderful day with Vong, full of interesting information, lovely nature, lots of historical and religious facts. He was very flexible when we changed the itinerary in accord with our wishes and abilities. He replied fast via email making our trip planning easy. Vong is very passionate with our frequent photo stops and slow movement, spent with us more time than was planned. All we wanted to see we did see. His English is clear and easy to follow. Many thanks to you for the lovely moments, Vong

We loved this tour; Vong is the best! He is very friendly, proficient in English and very knowledgeable about the Lao history, culture and sights. Communicating is easy and clear. He offered some great tips for dinner and things to do by ourselves. We very much appreciated Vong's flexibility to adapt the itinerary to our wishes and incidental opportunities at a relaxed pace. We've had the best experience we could have hoped for and highly recommend Vong to be your guide in beautiful and interesting Laos!

Tour: #61566, Ou River- Mekong Cruise-Pak Ou cave-Whisky village., Luang Prabang, Laos    view tour
Date: Nov 30/19

Excellent tour by a terrific guide. While we covered the trip highlights as described in the itinerary, Vong also took us to some out of the way places based on our input & questions (the village where they make the Indigo dye & the waterfalls). The two days were a good balance of things to see & do as well as having a relaxing Mekong boat trip back. His driver was great as well and both he and Vong were very professional. Overall well worth the cost and highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review, I am very appreciate for the review.

We really enjoyed our day with Vong. We requested a unique experience trekking in the countryside and we definitely got it; 7 miles through the jungle, mountains, fields, and villages. He arranged it well, and was very friendly, attentive and knowledgable about the area. One thing that would have improved the day was more information about local flora and fauna. Overall, a very positive experience.

Vong made my first visit to Laos pleasant and memorable. It was particularly nice that he was there to help overcome the language and cultural barriers. We hit the main attractions this time (waterfalls, caves, temples) but I am planning to go back to get off the beaten path a bit. I would recommend Vong to anyone who wants to get an introduction to Luang Prabang from and insider.

Vong was an exceptional tour guide! Always on time, very accommodating, had good suggestions, and catered to our needs. There were two of us on the tour and one had some physical limitations. Vong was sensitive about this and made arrangements for her to see the sights without having to walk too far; meanwhile, I am an active person and wanted to do more. Vong was able to balance the tour so that both of us were happy. As a former monk he was extremely knowledgable about traditions and so interesting!

This was an overnight trip from Luang Prabang to Plain of Jars and return. While it was a wonderful trip I would recommend spending two nights to make it more enjoyable. Vong was an excellent guide. The sites are truly impressive. Equally meaningful are the bomb craters left from the US bombing during the Vietnam/American war.

Mr Vong is a very helpful and considerate guide as we have an 82 year old grandma with us. We felt very comfortable with his arrangement during our visits. He and his driver had extended great assistance to grandma especially on aboarding and alighting from vehicle and boat. He is also knowledgable and passionate in answering all my questions regarding Laos and the local people. Thank you very much, Mr Vong!

I had broken my foot a few days before the tour but Vong was so patient with me. I was slow and struggled to walk more than a few steps at a time but he helped me all the way and waited for me. His knowledge on the local culture and experiences were also a source of valuable information for us. We really enjoyed our time with him!

"Vong was an excellent communicator prior to the tour. He was very efficient in replying emails and making changes as needed. He was on time to meet us at the hotel on both days and was very knowledgeable. He was very helpful with local tips about places to eat too. The car that he arranged to take us around was very new and very clean. Great tour guide and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone travelling to Luang Prabang."

Vong was an outstanding guideā€”he was highly proficient in English, extremely knowledgeable about history particularly relating to the USA, and gave us a very thorough understanding of the culture and anthropology of the region. Vong was very friendly, answered all of our questions and gave a great description of the current affairs in LP and Laos.

We had a lovely day with Vong and the in town tour was very informative and enjoyable. The afternoon was almost all traveling by river to Ou Cave - a bit too much time for one site. Restaurant he recommended for lunch was perfect. Maybe more sites in town would have been preferable. Vong's English was excellent.
