I highly recommend to do the the classic tour. We did not see gibbons ( probably our fault as we were quite noisy group of travellers) but we saw beautiful nature in the jungle with perfect views. Our guides were very friendly, helpful and caring....More

Took the express tour with lots of zip lining. The guides were very lively and the companions we met are very nice people. It's a rare experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The three day waterfall tour was a completely unique and brilliant experience. The treehouses have to be seen to be believed and the zip lines are exhilarating and offer fantastic views. Our guide spoke good English and looked after us well. Would highly recommend!

Relaxed, fun guys who run this. Good for couples or friends but still fine if you go solo. They take photos which are quite cheap to get at the end and they have lockers with keys and water if needed. There are a few monkeys...More

We did the waterfall tour. It was a ton of trekking but the rewards out weighed the work times a million! The treehouses are so high up and perfect. Sleeping listening to the jungle is epic. Our guides were amazing. Vong and Pisonau took great...More

we also left at around that time and got to luang prabang at around 4:00 a.m. - so we also got to see the procession of the monks without even having to get up early, :-).
