Luang Prabang Adventure

Laos Private Trip

Manifa Travel’s Tailor-made tours offer you the flexibility to choose your own trip in Laos. Although Laos’ tourist destinations are becoming more open to international travelers, many destinations are still difficult to visit on your own. Why not make your trip exciting and unique by inserting a side trip with our experienced guides to meet the Hmong and Khmu people in the mountainous jungles of Laos and experience a homestay in their village into your Southeast Asia itinerary. You can decide how and when to travel, the level of service and the hotel standard. Pack in as many activities and destinations as possible, or incorporate some relaxation and free time to explore on your own terms.

A must do! A must do in Luang Prabang! We had an amazing day visiting the beautiful waterfalls and watching rescue bears in the sanctuary, followed by a delicious lunch overlooking the Mekong river! We met the elephants and joined them for their bath, a great experience! We were also happy to know that the elephant s where not chained or anything, had great roaming place in the woods and got to swim when they wanted 🙂 further we had a relaxing an beautiful tour on the slow boat in the Mekong river, stoping in the caves and overlooking the beautiful nature. A great experience, and great guide! Would recommend any day 🙂 -Dagny and Tiril…

Fun tour and great guide I cannot exactly remember our guide's name but I believe it was Somsa (sorry if I wrote it wrong). He was a great and fun guide and I really enjoyed the trip and his explanations of the various places, the origin of the Pak Ou cave statues etc. Here was the tour exactly: 1- Drive (by minibus) to the Kuang Si Waterfalls. 2- Spend around two hours exploring Kuang Si on our own. They are very nice to see, but you should get anti-slip shoes if you decide to climb above the waterfall since it is VERY slippery on the way down with the steps covered in water and moss (in fact I had hiking shoes and still slipped). 3- Drive from Kuang Si to the Elephant Sanctuary near Pak Ou. This drive was a bit exhausting honestly so you might get carsick. 4- Lunch at the Elephant Sanctuary. Unlike the other comments I didn't see any elephants in chains. In fact one of the elephants had been roaming around freely and ended up basically with his trunk on our table, being fed bananas from the other tourists. 5- Boat from sanctuary to Pak Ou. This is fun. 6- Pak Ou exploration. Some nice caves, lower and upper cave. Around 240 steps to climb up to the upper cave. The guide explained the history there. 7- Pak Ou back to Luang Prabang by boat. A sunset cruise. Overall I think it is great value for money. You visit the main "far away" attractions and get a boat cruise and lunch too for a reasonable price. I think this might have been a little better if we took the boat from closer to Kuang Si to Pak Ou. The boat rides were fun but the minibus rides were exhausting. A+ for the tour guide Samsa and for the bus/boat driver!…

GENIAL!!! Experience inoubliable! La journee commence, on part tot bisiter les cascades. Moment ideal car aucun touriste n’y est à cette heure (9h du matin). Ensuite, ils nous emmènent jusqu’à un ecolodge avec des elephants, ou nous pouvons leur donner a manger, les caresser, et surtout, deguster un delicieux repas du midi a cote des elephants. Pour cloturer la journee, on part en croisiere sur un petit bateau de 10 places faire un tour, visiter la grotte, etc. Nous sommes super bien servis, et en avons vraiment eu pour notre argent (100$ pour 3 personnes pour une journee entiere)…

MUST DO experience We had a great day with Somsak, a great and passionate guide who took us to so many nice places. Not only did we see Pak Ou cave and Kuang Si waterfalls, but we also got to travel by boat on the Mekong river, share lunch with elephants passing by, and get to know Lao people better. I recommend strongly! Khop chai de Somsak for sharing with us your love for beautiful Luang Prabang :)…

自分調べですが、象使いの免許取得の1日ツアーが1番安いです。 私の時はオフシーズンで、1日ツアーで30ドルでした。 昼食付きです。 屋根なしのソンテウでガタガタ道を結構長い時間移動するので、そこら辺の山に捨てられたらどうしようねと欧米人のお姉さんが冗談言っていました。 象へ指示するときに使うラオス語を覚えたら、最初はカゴ付きで乗り、次はカゴなしで象使いのお兄さんと一緒に、最後は1人乗りで象とともにメコン川に突入です。 私の象は、水吐いてと命令すると泥をかけてくる性悪で、チェンジ!と何度もお願いしましたが、自分が選んだ象なんだから責任持てと言われました。 象選びは慎重に。 この価格でこんなに楽しいアクティビティはそうありません。 一点注意なのは、象に跨るときには必ず厚めの長ズボンを履いてください。 ショートパンツを履いていたら、硬い象の毛が太ももに刺さりまくって、そこから細菌が入り、帰国後50箇所くらい白ニキビみたいな出来物が出来ました。
