Laos is a fantastic destination all throughout the year because the temperature is consistently hot and muggy. The months of November through January are the best to go on a Laos package tour. It's an intriguing time to visit across Laos as it's also the driest and the primary tourist season. June through October is considered the wet season. This is a perfect time to go by river because it pours often, the heat is over 85°F. on average, as well as some roads may be closed because of floods. It is dry but hot from February through May, with temperatures exceeding 100°F.
Laos Tour Reviews
Outstanding Local Laos Tour Company
This is an outstanding travel company in every respect, from suggestions, response, organisation, to value for money.
It organised a 4 week trip through Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos, listening to what we wanted, and our budget, and then coming up with an itinerary which we could then revise and hone.
Everything worked well, there were no mishaps, and their attention to detail was second to none.
As an experiencced traveller I can genuinely say this outfit is the best I have used and experienced.
Particular mention goes to Rebecca Tam, our sales agent, who was outstanding at her job.
Amazing Specific Laos & Indochina Trip
Our 12-day private tour of Vietnam (7 days), Laos (2 days) and Cambodia (3 days) with three adults in September 2019 was unforgettable. I worked with Ms. Tania in the Hanoi office of Viet Vision Travel through email and WhatsApp on a specific itinerary that included our own driver, guide and vehicle.
The trip included airport pickup, English-speaking guides full of fun and energy, clean vans with cold AC, cold water and lemon-scented cold towels, 3-and-4 star hotels, 3 boat trips, about half the meals, all entry fees, and airport return (including gate check-in assistance). The days were full but efficiently organized so that no time was wasted. The reduced “trip tension” from the well-oiled Viet Vision machine was worth every penny/dong/kip/riel.
I generally matched our itinerary to the sights in the equivalent National Geographic group tour, but paid less than half their cost for our private tour. Flying between Saigon, DaNang, Hanoi, Luang Prabang and Siem Reap was a breeze with no hiccups.
Yes, I’m an engineer and Tania was up to the challenge of working with me. She answered all my questions in one day or less. She provided links to each hotel option (so that we could choose). She got our visas. She helped arrange a private meeting with an English-speaking Buddhist monk. And she even upgraded our HaLong Bay cruise to a 5-star ship room at no extra cost!
The office atmosphere of fun and friendship, mixed with hard work, was evident. We were even given a small but lovely gift. It ended with hugs all around. Our sincerest kudos to Tania and Go Laos Tours.
Fabulous Laos Trip
I was helped to arrange the trip by Ms. Rebecca at Go Laos Tours. I booked the trip quite last minute over Vietnamese New Year and found the booking experience really excellent, courteous, helpful with a few options to make the most of 10 days in Northern Laos. The quality of advice, the guide, driver and accommodation was all in line or better than expectations. The added benefit was being able to book everything including the gibbon experience, which some tour operators couldn't offer. Laos is a fantastic place and Go Laos Tours made the experience for a solo traveler very simple.
