This tour is amaaazzinngggg value for money!! We started with a gorgeous boat ride to a Rice Wine farm in a traditional village, and then took the boat to the famous Pak Ou caves where our tour guide gave us a really interesting talk about Laos, it's history and culture, and the significance of the caves. We had time to explore before taking the boat to Manifa elephant farm, which is the best place for elephants in Laos as they give them plenty of space to roam and take care of them well. There we ate a delicious buffet meal, the food was incredible, with a stunning view of the Mekong river, a view of the elephants on the river bank, and brilliant customer service. We then got a chance to feed the elephants, before taking a van through the jungle to go to Kuang Si falls. We had adequate time to go off on our own to explore and swim in the falls, which were breathtakingly beautiful and a must-see in Laos. I checked off so many iconic places to see, all with the kindest guide tours I could ask for, and the chance to meet other travellers. I loved every moment and would recommend this for solo travellers, couples, families, friends, everyone! I was apprehensive about the price because as a student I wanted to spend as little as possible, but I cannot express how glad I am I went on this tour. 10 hours of pure beauty and joy.
Money very well spent
We went on this tour yesterday, guided by a well prepared, likeable young man named Xay. Got picked up at the hotel and hopped on the slow boat for one of the highlights of my life, a cruise down to Mekong where we toured Pak Ou caves. We then went back to Luang Prabang for an excellent lunch consisting of Lao dishes. And it was off to the Kuangsi Falls for a gorgeous walk along the falls and swimming in the pool under them. Xay was quite knowledgeable about pretty well everything we asked and very accommodating, even putting in extra time at the end of the day to stop at the buffalo dairy for ice cream on the way back from the falls. Amazing trip, amazing day. Thanks Xay!
good trip to see the highlights

I recommend this trip if you have little time in LP. I am glad we choose the slow boat, to go by boat to the buddhas cave. Very relaxing.
We felt we had enough time at all our stops. Just the last one in a Hmong village was a waste of time. The lunch was good, a buffet style was tasty options and nice views on the river. It belonged to the elephant thing, but I you do not want to you won't see elephants.
Great day, very nice guide!
I had some trouble with communications with the tour operator. In the end it turned out to be a well organized trip. They will pick you up from the hotel after 08:00 AM, and we we on our boar at 08:45 AM.
Great trip of much happening
I'd recommend you do the Slow Boat to Pak Ou cave and Villages however on a hot day you really don't want to throw in the Kuangsui falls.
Essentally the slow boat meanders down the Mekong and take in the view and villages. It's great however when you arrive back it Luang Prabang you are shoveled into a hot van and shipped out to the falls. At the falls you get 50 minutes to get to the falls change swim and get back.
Our guide didn't tell us his name and sort of ended up as a time keeper, nothing was really explained especially when we picked up extra people and left people behind.. weird.
As I said the slow boat was great spend time later on to go to the falls there is no need for an express tour.
