Overview
Orange Robe Tours recommend that visitors do both tours (Cultural Temple Tour and Guided Meditation Experience) combined to gain a full understanding and appreciation of Buddhist Culture in Laos. Our Cultural Temple Tour, led by a former Buddhist Novice or Monk, includes a guided tour of a local temple, focusing on Buddhist culture, architecture, appropriate temple etiquette and the daily life of Novices and Monks. This is your opportunity to find out everything you would like to know about Buddhism in Laos from a first-hand source. Orange Robe Tours is a profit-for-purpose social enterprise, based in Luang Prabang, Laos. We employ former Novices and Monks who have recently left the temple to give culturally appropriate tours to tourists, providing much-needed support during their transition from temple life to layperson life, while preserving the traditional culture and customs of Laos. A portion of all profits is donated to the surrounding temples included in the cultural tours.

Very nice experience with Orange Robe Tours. We combined a cultural visit with an ancient novice with one hour of guided meditation. This tour is a nice approach to Buddhism and was conducted with professionalism and kindness by someone who knows very well Lao culture. I highly

An incredibly informative and authentic insight into the eye opening culture of Monks and Novices in Laos. A much more real, unique experience with a former novice explaining the culture to us - rather than just any old guide you’d get elsewhere. The guides are lovely and can

This was such a great thing to do. I took my 2 teenage kids to meet a wonderful ex-novice who told us all about his life whilst learning to be a monk. The tour is only about an hour so I managed to keep my kids interested during that time and we all learnt so much. Highly

When I first read reviews about this tour I put it on the must do list. I was not disappointed. It was a great experience to ask questions to someone I would not ordinarily get to meet. I loved it, but my husband who had not read the website was slightly disappointed that only

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. The whole team is very pleased that you enjoyed your experience. Also, we appreciate your husband's insight. We do hope he enjoyed his time. Our intention has always been to provide people with an opportunity to learn about Buddhist practises in Laos so that they may take that knowledge and explore the rest of the country with the context we've provided on our tours. As a new company we always appreciate feedback and it is something we will take on board.
