Exploring Laos holidays

Reviews

We are very proud of our tailor-made trips in Laos but no one says it better than our lovely customers who have tried and tested our holidays. Take a peek at their comments below.

"Laos is a fascinating country..." - Richard M, Jan 2020
"Laos is a fascinating country with many strong traditions and cultures that make it a very special place.
Our guides were both a real joy, nothing was too much trouble and if we expressed an interest in something they'd do their best to tell us about it or show us some very local experiences, far from tourist traps.
The dawn visit to Wat Phou was just astonishing. To be the only people there and climb those steps in the dark, watch the sunrise and then turn round to see the strange temple is an experience I will never forget." - Richard M, Jan 2020
"Just lovely people..." - Gill C, Dec 2019
"An amazing job putting our holiday together. It was fantastic! Everything worked, there were no delays and we are very grateful to you for doing a great job. All of our guides were fabulous: credit to their countries, knowledgeable, polite, gracious and just lovely people." - Gill C, Dec 2019
"Exceeded all expectations!" - Clare K, Nov 2019
"This entire holiday ran so smoothly. The drivers and guides were excellent and ALWAYS on time (indeed early!) The accommodation was fantastic, the itinerary was incredibly busy but there were quite a lot of early starts." - Clare K, Nov 2019
Loved everything! - Sue & Tim, Nov 2019
"We loved every aspect of our holiday and are only sorry we did not have more time to spend away. Each time, the guides we had to show us around were very good and we very much enjoyed talking to them & learning so much more about their countries. The balance of activity and more relaxing and free time was perfect. We would not hesitate to use Fleewinter again or recommend the company to others." - Sue and Tim, Nov 2019
Magical. Feb, 2019
"All went very smoothly and as expected. The service provided by the agents in Luang Prabang was very good and our guide/driver for the first four days, Chan, were excellent. Highlight was an early morning trip to the Kuang Si falls where we were served an unexpectedly comprehensive picnic breakfast sitting at a table next to the fall - completely on our own! Magical. We certainly felt we had got the type of experience we wanted and expected." - Henry B., Feb, 2019
All very efficient... Feb, 2019
"The Fleewinter team was very helpful with recommendations, the whole experience was arranged very efficiently. We loved the complimentary app service to check our itinerary whilst travelling" - Brooks, Feb 2019
The little touches made the holiday perfect... Jan, 2019
"The elephant sanctuary was extraordinary, such an emotional day. The work they are doing is incredible and much needed as elephant riding is still way too popular in Laos.
Other highlights, on both the experience and the positive impact in their communities, were the buffalo dairy farm -absolutely brilliant and interactive - and ock pop tok -helping women weavers to get fair prices-. Champasak spa was incredible, as well as the falls on Don Khon.
The little touches like breakfast at falls made the holiday as perfect as it was." - Jo S, Jan 2019
Worth discovering Laos before... March 2018
"It is definitely worth discovering Laos before the high speed rail link to China is completed in 2025, and all the hydro-electric schemes are completed which we think will change the culture of the northern regions.
There were some real highlights for us: the sunrise trip to Wat Phou, the boat trip to the 4000 islands, the new elephant sanctuary outside Luang Prabang - no riding, just walking with the elephants was really special, the picnic breakfast on our own at the waterfall outside Luang Prabang and the river trip from Muang La to Nong Khiaw with picnic lunch on a beach was brilliant.
Unforgettable! - Fiona F, March 2018
The smiley, friendly people were a highlight... Jan 2018
"Thank you for organising an awesome visit to Laos. Certainly exceeded my expectations in many ways but the smiley, friendly people were a highlight. The guides also deserve a special mention as they were absolutely brilliant. The cars and drivers were also terrific. The itinerary was amazing, we weren’t sure about the extremely early starts but put our faith in you and the guides and were pleased that we did. Lots of unrepeatable experiences - well done again! - Richard S, Jan 2018
The best signs of a great family holiday... Jan 2018
We all had the best time, thanks largely to Delia's excellent suggestions and organisation. One of the best signs of a great family holiday is that we all had different highlights: I loved the alms giving and Kuang Shi falls in Luang! A huge and special thanks also for enabling an unforgettable birthday surprise. It was all brilliant - thank you - Ed S, Jan 2018



arranged to experience without the crowds... Jan 2018
An amazing experience, curated carefully by Delia to fit our interests. As first-timers to Laos, we just loved the whole experience.
We were lucky with the boating trip as we went later in the day (actually were the very last boat to finally get back, after dark!) and it was truly magical, without the crowds so we felt very lucky.
Excellent response times - amazing really - and no issue with a bit of back and forth to tailor-make and tweak. Felt very hand-held throughout the experience. - Claire MK, Jan 2018
A very good mix... Jan 2017
We really had a fantastic trip and all of the guides and drivers where wonderful and we had a very good mix of sightseeing activities and relaxation.
Perfect customer service. Delia was extremely helpful, responsive and very knowledgeable. Besides swift replies, she came up with a wonderful itinerary and was very flexible with any additional requests we had." - Liana M., Jan 2017
The perfect mix of 'affordable' with luxury... Dec 2017
"We had the pleasure to experience again Delia's usual perfect mix of 'more affordable' with luxury: I lost track of the hotels but all were value for money and excellently managed. The Elephant sanctuary visit was the BEST day of the holiday and they have some innovative ideas to thwart poaching and stop farmers injuring elephants - both very impressed with their activities and we're now furiously fund raising for them in the UK!" - Nicola K, Dec 2017
Luang Prabang
This delightful Unesco-heritage protected town has some of the finest architecture, food and temples of all of Laos (as well as lots of cute boutique shops!) You could spend days in this delightful town, which has two rivers running through it, whilst exploring nearby caves, waterfalls and elephant camps.
Si Phan Don (4,000 Islands)
This cluster of islands caught in the middle of the mighty flowing Mekong is the perfect place to chill for a couple of days. Cycling to waterfalls, spotting rare river dolphins, chilling in hammocks and watching the sunset over the Mekong are all in the order of the day here.
Champasak & The Bolaven Plateau
The Bolaven Plateau is not to be missed by any die-hard coffee fans! This idyllic, hilly region is where the finest coffee in Laos grows and we have some wonderful day tours on offer here - you can even spend the night at a family home on a traditional coffee plantation. Nearby Champasak has some wonderful luxurious riverside accommodation (some of the best in Laos) and a sunrise trip to Wat Phou Temple must not be missed.
Vientiane
The riverside capital of Laos is home to some of the country's finest restaurants, spas and cafes, not to mention a fantastic collection of boutique hotels... it is the perfect place to indulge your tastebuds and senses for a day or two. Nearby there are a number of impressive temples and cultural sights which are ideal to explore by bicycle.
Vang Vieng
Something of an outdoor lover's paradise, Vang Vieng, which is set on Nam Song River, is the perfect place for anyone seeking nature based activities - as well as some more adrenalin-seeking adventures. It's backdrop of serene cliffs and vibrant green paddy fields, coupled with an excellent selection of boutique hotels, make it the ideal place to chill for a day or two.
Vieng Xai Caves
This fascinating wartime cave hideout is set in beautiful gardens backed by delightful karst scenery. It is ideal for those who are travelling onwards to Vietnam and crossing at the land border - or vice versa.

Your adventure starts here!
