Luxury Travel and Private Tours to Laos
Landlocked Laos is the least visited out of its Southeast Asian neighbours, but its small, enchanting cities, gentle culture, and lush, unspoiled scenery should definitely not be overlooked. Let us take you there with all the style, luxury and local expertise that Jacada can bring; your bespoke itinerary can feature as much or as little as you like, and you can easily combine Laos with Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, and beyond for a well-rounded trip.
Tranquil Luang Prabang is set on the banks of the Mekong River and captures the heart of every traveller that visits the old French-influenced city; visit its gilded, picturesque Buddhist temples and rise early to witness the daily procession of saffron-clad monks collecting alms from the local residents. Venture out into the jungle on an elephant trek, and head off the beaten track into the north to stay in one of our favourite rainforest lodges, set in a village by some hot springs. In the sleepy capital Vientiane, spend time wandering past French colonial mansions and watch a fiery sunset over the Mekong. Pre-Angkor ruins draw travellers to Don Daeng and Champasak in southern Laos, while the Four Thousand Islands of the Mekong offer the ideal setting in which to truly unwind and maybe spot the rare pink dolphin.

Great Service. Very responsive. Lots of attention to detail and little addons to make our holiday a great success.
Everything from the itinerary, to the choice of the hotels, to the local guides was really excellent and contributed to make my 3 weeks in Myanmar and Laos a wonderful experience. I like to travel alone and often don’t use agencies but I think Jacada is definitely worth it!
This is my second trip planned by Jacada. Both trips have been fantastic- wonderful adventures with superb lodging, excellent guides and a mixture of off the beat adventure . I found my travel planner Kate available at all times and she was a wealth of information. She was able to contour our trip to suit us perfectly. I would not hesitate to recommend Jacada to anyone looking for a seamless trip which combines adventure, luxury and attention to detail.
From planning through execution, Jacada did an excellent job on my adventure trip to Thailand,Laos and Cambodia. They even introduced me to a Mekong River cruise which was like icing on the cake. I would use Jacada again for sure.
Must see places are Hoi An and Halong Bay in Vietnam, Luang Prabang in Laos. The crowds around Angkor Wat at sunrise are a pain
Until this recent trip to South East Asia we have always travelled 100% independently, but even by our standards, this was a pretty complicated journey to four countries in just under 4 weeks, involving almost every conceivable form of transportation. More than that, it was to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary, so we decided the stakes and expense were too high for us to go it alone. Kate, Alec and the team at Jacada and their partners at Trails of Indochina, who provided our superb guides- Phi in Vietnam, Sarom in Cambodia and Johnny in Laos and organised all the logistics on the ground, made it seamless and stress free and we wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
