Reviews

独学で日本語を習得したトゥーンさんの説明はわかりやすかったです。ラオスのお参りの仕方や生活スタイルの説明も興味深いものでした。またルアンパバーンに行く時はガイドをお願いしたいと思います。
We had an exceptional and wonderful experience, that was planned and organized by Manifa Travel, according our requests. The elephant camp was truly moving, as the elephants are free to roam around and receive a lot of food and affection. Our interaction with the elephants was great especially for our children. Also, the accommodation in the camp (private bungalows with a great river view) and the food (Yami!) were beyond our expectations. Our other activities were exiting and well organized, including the boat on the Mekong river, the bicycle ride, the kayaking and the track in the fields. Our guide (Mr. Wong) was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs and was fluent in English. We highly recommend Manifa Travel and we are thankful for this great experience.
