“It’s a pleasure to deal with a tour company that knows what they’re doing. I was blown away by the speedy response from Asia Tour Advisor and the exact customized itinerary they provided for my holiday. I’ve never had service like this – even at home.

We landed in Vientiane where it was a happy relief to find a driver waiting for us and ready to take us to the hotel. The transfer was pleasant and efficient and the hotel staff were really friendly. Check in was painless. The beds were comfortable and the facilities as good as we’d hoped for. Besides, our guide seemed to know every inch of town and helped us eat local wherever possible. The food was great! We saw pretty much everything that Vientiane had to offer and we’d love to come back one day.
Thank you so much guys! Verena -Italian”
