We have recently had the pleasure of doing this 'slow boat' trip from the Thai Border down the Mekong River to Luang Prabang. I cannot say enough how lovely the trip was, how great the staff were and how well organised it was from start to finish. Firstly Adisak answered all my queries immediately via email beforehand. They took no... More

Wife and I just spent 2 days on the luang Say cruise from the Thai border to Luang Prabang . Having just left a luxury Thai resort we were a bit apprehensive about this part of our itinerary ,we needn't have been . At first glance the luang say certainly wasn't a Silver sea liner . But after an hour... More

We had a really excellent two day trip down the Mekong with Luang Say Cruises from Chiang Rai to Luang Prabang. The quality of the experience does come at a cost but I felt that the overall value for money was very high. We flew into Chiang Rai, Thailand for a few nights and then had arranged with Luang Say...

Sailing down Mekong onboard Nagy was a highlight of my Laos trip. Had feared the public boat, which sounded more than survival than god fun. Payed a little more but I have an experience I will look back at with great pleasure. The guide onboard, Ka, was very serviceminded and made everything work perfect.

If you're between the ages of 18 to 30, this is a fun trip and you're young enough to endure the travails. Anybody older - beware. I'm talking about the SLOW PUBLIC BOAT (not the speed boats) that you can book through tour agencies or by yourself. Getting from Thailand to Laos to catch the boat is difficult if you're... More

Laos is one hidden jewel in Asia. We travelled through Vietnam, Cambodia and later to Thailand. The landscape of water and mountain ranges plus the friendliness of people surpasses any expectations. Lao, as it is correctly named, should never be missed. Angie

We traveled with Nagi in late January, 2015. The weather was pleasant, though chilly in the morning. But not to worry, Nagi provided blankets. The crew were all very pleasant and the leader, Kae, was just wonderful to take care of us. I had trouble walking on some of the parts, and he was right there to assist me. The... More

For the most part, our experience on the Nagi of the Mekong Slow Boat was positive. We had 26 guests (capacity is 30, I believe), but we didn't feel crowded. Perhaps we were lucky, but we had a very nice group on board and chatted with various people, and our guide was kindly and earnest. We appreciated being transported from... More

Overall we were very pleased with the Nagi tour. Adisak was helpful and quick to respond to our many questions. They picked us up right on time in chiang khong and seemed to be very organized. It was a pleasure now t having to carry our bags or deal with any of the transport or immigration details. Although much more... More
