1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The Plain of Jars was fascinating and beautiful - it was one of the main reasons that I wanted to go to Laos. Too many tour companies to this country don't include it. It is difficult to get to, but well worth it. It was also such a pleasure to have breakfast each morning in Luang Prabang sitting outside overlooking the Mekong. I think it was extremely beneficial and informative to include the visits to the organization that helps in locating and removing the unexploded ordnances still left in the country, and to the COPE center, which helps victims from such.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

The itinerary didn't always go exactly as stated, and transfers were an issue when having to book flights on your own. There were also members coming and going at different times, which affected the cohesiveness of the group.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We stayed in locally owned and operated hotels, used restaurants owned and operated by the local people, and used only local guides, so yes, it definitely benefited the local people.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Overall this trip was very good and went well.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

All of it !!! Amazing place. Think though that the LUANG PRABANG part was really special. The last 3days in city was ok but we missed being in LUANG PRABANG. So peaceful and beautiful.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Maybe to travel light. I took clothes that I never wore. Far too many.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes and they were really beautiful people who wanted to help and did help us. Supported conservation. I would hate for LUANG PRABANG to be spoilt by tourism.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Cannot say how much we enjoyed the vacation .... We were looked after all the way. Flights and shuttles/ guides/mini bus driver etc were all so stress free and well organised. Well done to all your team who have been amazing and really made our vacation one to remember for a very long time. A VERY BIG THANK YOU FROM TRICIA AND MYSELF.
