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

we toook the slow boat form Huay Xai to Luang Prabang. The view of the river was great. However as tourist numbers have soared the latest years it seems Laotians have difficulties in coping with the numbers, scale and service. It was a stuffy noisy ride, with rude co travellers who pushed and and smoked on board the boat. The... More

We chose Nagi of Mekong because of the reviews I read on trip advisor. It was certainly a very relaxing and comfortable trip...but...after crossing the border into Laos and going through customs there was no mini van for the 10k journey to the boat, we had to cram into tuk tuks, because apparently the mini van driver had gone fishing!!!...

The mekong is a beautiful river, I love rivers, and the slow boat from Luang Prabang to Huay Xai/Thai border is a lovely way to see it. However, it is a long journey, make sure you have something to read or do on the way.

Went from Huay Xai to Luang Prabang (downstream). There was heaps of water and the trip was a bit shorter going downstream, but the downside was that the boat was quite full as this is the most popular direction. As many others have already reviewed the feature of the trip is the serenity and the great landscapes. Many of the... More
