Lovely tour. A great way to sample...

Lovely tour. A great way to sample some of the dazzling sights of Luang Prabang. Mr Vong, our guide, was very knowledgeable and took pride in showing us a bit of his country and people. Bravo Indo china was very responsive to our needs and customised the tour as we were travelling with our 3 year old. Great lunch at one of the prettiest locations that we have came across yet. A must do
