  • This was such a wonderful way to begin my trip to Laos ... it helped me to adjust to the slow pace of Lao life and was the perfect introduction to Lao culture. Ka was a wonderful guide - informative, ...  more »
  • We are so happy we choose this company. It is worth paying the extra money compared to the public slow boats. We organised everything by email and did an internet payment. Everything worked perfectly....  more »
  • Who can do this? Take a photo or a video cam. 2 days to let nature to take over, a varied nature with many faces. The advantage of this ride: you come down with Action.Man is in another world which slowly breaks down. Here, it seems to be normal even though you can already see the signs of the times on the basis of deforestation. This ride releases the head about other things that seem so important to us. Care and Board 1A. Extreme recommendation value

  • Mekong River Cruises An Amazing Mekong River Cruises from Luang Prabang to Huay Xai, Laos to Thailand. We run cruises on the Mekong River upstream and downstream between Luang Prabang – Pakbeng – Huay Xai. The cruise takes two days to trip stop a night in Pakbeng. It’s more of a luxury than public slow boat to Huay Xai. When you get to Lao border my team can help you to cross to Thai on the same day, the border close at 10 pm, you can go to Chiang Khong, Chiang Rai takes 2 hours and Chiang Mai takes 5:30 am This is the perfect way to enjoy the beauty of the Mekong Cruise. We take care of all your worries and give you an unforgettable Mekong River experience.
  • The company was 30 minutes late to pick us up and we eventually had our hotel call them, upon which we discovered they had completely forgotten us. We boarded the tuk tuk and then he waited around for another 10 minutes before actually bringing us. When we arrived and got our tickets, to our dismay we were placed in the worst seats on the boat, in the back next to the bar and toilets. This is precisely the reason we bought the tickets the day before, so we could have a better seat near the front. When we asked the ticket office, we couldn't change our seats and they told us the company hadn't called in our reservation so effectively it was as if we had showed up at 10am to buy our ticket, meaning we got the worst seats on the boat. If I were you I wouldn't go with this irresponsible company and just arrive early to buy your ticket directly from the pier. Complete waste of money.
  • Views are very nice. Chairs are soft. They are from cars. Not boring.
  • If you are willing to take the slow boat to Luang Prabang, don't buy the ticket here. They will charge you 240000 kips. Try to buy it at the Pier, which is about 1 km away from town and it costs 210000.
