Covid-19 An important update from Evaneos

Trip review
Laos

loved their trip to Laos

Some misunderstandings with locals because of their accent, which we are not used to, although they can nicely write English is the only thing that we had trouble with at times. Guides and their drivers : Mostly fine to super fine all of the time, may it be Sandy in Thailand, Khamman and Super Girl Souchitta as well as Vong and the boat’s owners on the Shompoo Cruise. All have done their best. An overall mark of 9/10 All in all, highly recommended is what we can say about LaosMood and Evaneos. Thanks again so much!

Best parts:
Let me thank you for the marvellous trip you made us live through. It overall was sensational. No need to say that with all these activities, we got back home very tired but it all was worth it. We never had the time to deal with anything of our own during our stay in Laos / Thailand, and so we had quite a lot to do once we arrive. Everything went well from start to finish and we learnt through the places we visited and the commentaries of our super guides quite an awful lot about these countries that were totally unknown to us before this trip.
Worst parts:
Hotels were mostly fine to very fine, the worst one being the one in Pakbeng with a very summary room and some porters just waiting inside the room for their tips. But, here again, I rather do think that you are unable to change this Pakbeng one as it could be the only one. Its site is magnificent, it only is a pity that the people are not. Excursions : The Shaman near Luang Prabang is totally out. Nothing to learn, nothing to do, nothing to look at, a waste of time. It doesn’t even look real, it probably isn’t anyway. Our best one : The Mandalao elephants’ trek, but most others also were greatly appreciated.
