Slow Down the Pace of Life on a Private Tour of Laos
On your tour through Laos you’ll find that Vientiane, the unhurried capital, is an interesting mix of Buddhist temples and French patisseries. Its most famous monument is the 16th-century golden stupa of Pha That Luang, considered the holiest site in the country. Laos’s version of the Arc de Triomphe of Paris, is the ornate Patuxai Victory Gate, a war memorial studded with images of Hindu gods.
Surrounded by mountains, Laos’s ancient capital and cultural center Luang Prabang lies at the confluence of the Nam Khan and Mekong rivers. Golden roofed Buddhist monasteries and colonial French architecture coexist in this UNESCO World Heritage city. Take a leisurely cruise down the serene river Mekong in a traditional long boat, passing rice fields and villages. Float past the cliffs of the Nam Ou River, and visit Pak Ou Caves, replete with several thousand tiny Buddha statues. In the late evening, head to the Handicraft Night Market, bursting with textiles, ceramics, and a range of handicrafts.
While in Luang Prabang, hop across to Elephant Village, where rescued elephants are rehabilitated, and guests allowed to interact with them. Spring for a cooking class, and learn to make a slew of Laotian dishes. Let your journey through this country move at a gentle, relaxed pace. Enchanting Travels experts will not only chalk out your step-by step itinerary, they’ll make sure everything runs like clockwork, and you have not a worry in the world.

Luang Prabang is considered the jewel of Indochina, and is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Vientiane, located in the Mekong Valley, is the small, quiet and picturesque capital city of Laos.
Hugging a 25kms longish road between Udomxai and Phongsali, this small Tai Lu village of Muang La is picturesque and friendly.
Nestled in a valley on the banks of the Nam Song River amid a misty jungle, Vang Vieng is a convenient stop-off point for those journeying overland between Luang Prabang…
My wife and I have been planning a trip through South America and our Travel Consultant, Lisa Fox, has provided nothing but exceptional service and support to create the perfect itinerary for this trip. Bags were nearly packed and we could picture the view from Machu Picchu, but plans have had to change due to travel safety and restrictions from the recent Coronavirus. While this could have been a very stressful time having to reschedule, rebook and who knows how much money could have been lost for what has already been paid for, Enchanting Travels has made it incredibly easy and stress free to reschedule the trip once this passes. We are very appreciative for the pre-trip support, and can already tell that the experience once we are actually on the road will be equally incredibly. Thanks for all your support!
“Great company, great people!
They helped us put together a complex schedule which included a number of experiences that we could not otherwise get. Also, in light of Covid-19, they were able to reschedule our upcoming Japan trip without additional fees, where many of my friends have scheduled similar trips (same timeframe) on their own, and all were refused a refund or reschedule without significant fees, despite having trip insurance.”
“We have used Enchanting Travels twice for trips. We couldn’t have been happier with the trips planned. Our first trip was a spectacular trip to southern India with driver for three weeks. This year’s trip was to Scotland. Unfortunately with the corona virus pandemic we chose to postpone this trip until 2021. Enchanting travels was very understanding of our concerns and quickly responded by moving our trip with all our desired sights to spring of 2021. Couldn’t ask for anything better from this stellar company with their caring staff.”
“The best thing about Enchanting Travels is the people, from the trip planners to the guides to the drivers. Everyone has been friendly, courteous and professional. The activities and accommodations are planned to fit our wishes, but we still had the flexibility to add or change and activity at short notice.”
Enchanting Travels is a bespoke experience. From planning my trip, through to the trip itself, everything was thought about. We traveled at a particularly difficult time, due to the Coronavirus outbreak. We were supported with everything, kept up to date with how the situation was developing and how this might affect us. Having WiFi in the car allowed us to communicate with our Trip Coordinator and check with our online government updates. Our stay was luckily not affected, but I felt so supported by the team. Our guides were ready waiting for us, could answer any questions about the sites we were visiting, they communicated with our chauffeur to ensure everything went smoothly. I could not recommend this company more highly. Excellent planning, experience, and execution. Our holiday was truly ENCHANTING!
“I recently completed a 46-day adventure tour through India that was the best ever thanks to Enchanting Travels. The Enchanting Agent began by interviewing me for an hour and came back with the perfect routing and pacing. The on-the-ground support was second to none. Enchanting says that their trip coordinators are there ‘in case of emergency’ but that does not come near to describing the relationship. My trip coordinator was in constant communication with me to ensure that every leg of the trip went as planned. No detail was too small for her to look after. I was assigned the same driver for 27 days and he was the ‘Best Indian Driver Ever’ because he did more than drive. He curated experiences on the road on those ‘non-planned’ days that I will remember for a lifetime. The value for money was simply remarkable. I don’t think I’ll travel without the help of Enchanting Travels again.”

Undiscovered Laos Destinations: The Hidden Gems
You may have heard about popular Laos destinations and what they offer, such as the morning alms-giving ceremony in Luang Prabang of Laos, an enchanting boat cruise on Mekong River at Champasak to see the rare Irrawaddy water dolphins, and the French colonial architecture of Vientiane in Laos.
Enchanting Travels made everything about planning our honeymoon totally seamless. We’re relatively seasoned travelers and their ability to take care of the hard stuff (logistics) and take our advice on the fun stuff (activities and accommodation) was a great partnership. We had fun planning and even more fun on the trip.
I have traveled the world with Enchanting Travels for many consecutive years. Every trip is unique, exciting and unforgettable. Enchanting staff looks after me since day one we start planning the trip and follows up with me throughout my travel. If I need anything big or small, they go miles to help! I can not imagine a travel agency with better quality service than Enchanting Travels!
They took care of almost everything for us! It was wonderful! We had time with our guides that showed us the world of Indonesia, we would not have recognized otherwise, and we also had time on our own to discover and relax! You will not be disappointed if you book with Enchanting Travels!
