Trip was as advertised when we booked and we had a really good day. There was plenty of food and drink and the staff were very helpful. Feel we had a taste of Lao. Definitely good value for money!
By John B for [EUR] F17-2 Sunset Cruise to Pak Ou Caves Kuang Si Falls, Villages on Feb 21, 2024
A wonderful experience. We touched the nature of Laos. Gida was great.
We highly recommend this active day tour! Our guide Vone did a super job! The cycling was enjoyable and had great views (where Vone took our picture), followed by a shower then a tasty lunch at elephant camp, We were able to feed and touch the elephants too! Vone accommodated our request to kayak with just him and he got a different guide to go with the unathletic family. Vone shared a lot of history and culture with us. We enjoyed the sunset cruise back too! Vone handed out cold water, beer and banana chips. A great, active day!

Cycling & Kayak to Pak Ou Caves with sunset cruise - Manifa Travel. 2nd Feb 2024 Booking was easy on the website and confirmed quickly. The cost was €90 for 2 adults. Our tour guide contacted us the day before our tour to confirm our tour and hotel and to get our height to ensure the correct size bikes. Von, our tour guide, met us at our hotel at 8am on the day as arranged, with our bikes, helmets and water. We cycled through a few villages, stopping at the paper village, whiskey distilling and silk production areas. When we reached our lunch destination (described in the booking as a picnic lunch) - we were blown away by the venue. It’s an amazing elephant sanctuary on the banks of the Mekong river with the most amazing views. The BBQ buffet was incredible, literally all you can eat and drinks included (alcoholic or soft drinks). The boss of the venue, a lovely man, very kindly gave us a talk all about the elephants and the work done by the sanctuary to look after and protect the elephants. We saw them eating and playing in the river, we didn’t expect to see all this! What a bonus. Next we got the little bus down to the river for kayaking. Life jackets on. Personal stuff placed in a waterproof bag and secured in the kayak. Larger items can be stored in a locker at the lunch venue. 2-man kayaks were safe and comfortable. Von was very kind to take photos and videos of us in the water. We kayaked to the Pak Ou Caves. The entry fee is included. We spent around 30-mins wandering around looking at the caves with 1000 Buddhas, quite amazing! Be warned though, there are many steps. The views are amazing though. We kayaked back to the lunch venue, we had a cold beer (included in price) and we showered and changed (towels provided). We then walked a short distance through the village to get the boat back. The boat has undercover seating or chairs and loungers on the deck. Beers and snacks provided (also included). The cruise back was delightful. So calm and warm, we watched the sunset which was beautiful. Von took a lots of photos for us (and others on the boat). This tour is so well organised. Von’s knowledge and passion for his country is just delightful, what a credit he is. My review probably doesn’t do this tour justice, it really was a great day. Much, much more than we expected, easily a 5-star day. For the price we paid, it was such good value and we didn’t pay for another thing, apart from a well earned tip to our guide. Cycle approx 25-30kms Kayaking approx 90-mins Sunset cruise approx 90-mins
