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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Derron Good morning from Luang Prabang. Thank you very much for your comment, I am very appreciated. Thanks Vong

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!

He took perfect care of us presenting beauty of Laos, it's culture and history. His patience, open heart, tact and kindness were as huge as Mekong river is long. Thank you very much 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.

Vong is excellent. Communication at all times was clear, concise and prompt. His knowledge and ability to describe both what we were seeing and the history behind it was equally good. Totally flexible particularly when I had a health issue that required complete replanning and a flight to where we needed to be over 24hrs earlier than planned. We still saw all the major sights we wished to see, he booked the flights, took us to the airport and ensured we were checked in before he would leave us. Superb.

We travelled with 2 families (incl. 5 children aged 6-11 years). Our tour schedule was busy (by our own choice), but Mr. Vong (for Vang Vieng and Luang Prabang) and Mr. Sing (for Pakse and Champasak) managed to always be calm, accomodating and flexible. We had a great mix of culture and sightseeing and activities for the kids. Being in Laos during Pi Mai (New Year) was amazing and gave us some spontaneous magical moments. Mr. Vong: Thank you so much for the great communication before and during the trip.

Dong was a nice, laid back guy who took us around the main sites in Luang Prabang the first day and then up the Mekong to the Buddhist caves and villages. He was forthcoming with info if asked but wasn't as direct as some of the other guides we've had. On one occasion, he sent us up to a temple on our own. It wouldn't have been better if he'd accompanied us to explain what we were seeing. That said, we had a good, relaxing two days.

My family (wife and two children aged 16 and 13) spent two days with Vong. The first in Luang Prabang and the second outside on a river boat trip. Vong is an excellent guide, who was very knowledgeable about all kinds of topics ranging from history, trees, plants, religion and culture. He showed us things that we would never have found ourselves and was constantly full of helpful commentary. He was very flexible about customising the itinerary to what we wanted to do whilst still making suggestions.
