“The Highlight of our Laos Holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We spent 3 weeks in Laos and what we will remember most fondly is the eplore-asia tour. From my first point of contact with Mr Aziz we felt confident that our holiday was in good hands, and throughout our tour he reguarly checked that we were happy. The acutual tour itineray had felxability whcih we appreciated. Our guide Ley's general knowledge was very good, and all components of the tour were managed well by him, we enjpoyed his sense of humour (that I think he adapted to ours) and he acted in a professional matter at all times. Great Value for what we received.

“Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The service by Mai Phitsamai at the office and the tour operators and tuk tuk drivers were all excellent. Everyone went out of their way to help us. We did the Bolaven Plateau tour,Wat Phu tour and booked our bus tkt to Ubon R. Example of our experience...they so accommodating, they came to pick us up in the morning, we caught the cruise down the Mekong to Champasak, the tuk tuk took us to our hotel, waited till we checked in then took us to Wat Phu with a short photo stop to take a photo of a budda btw to trees. He was present at the designated time to rtn us, he offered to stop to let us have lunch and he helped us find a place to exchange $ when every place was closed (New years eve). We stayed the night at Champasak as planned then decided to take the local bus back to Pakse vs waiting for the cruise at 2. When we popped into the xplore-asia office to check on our bus tkt and let them known not to wait for us...they refunded us the $ for not taking the cruise back!! What a surprise! Not only did we have a great experience and tour...we got $ back when we changed our plans!

“Noi of Xplore Asia l”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

although we only ended up having Noi from the Pakse Office booking our hotels, she also arranged a private car transfer from Pakse to Ubon airport. She speaks excellant English and gave us many good ideas of what to do in the region.
We were recommended by another TA poster and was not disappointed .

“Upper Mekong River, Luang Prabang, Seam Reap. A great customized trip for two”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Alex Aziz with Xplore Asia did a wonderful job in guiding us with planning our September 2012 visit to Laos and Cambodia.
Our trip entailed connections to Northern Thailand followed by two days on the Mekong, a very pleasant week in Luang Prabang at the time of the annual "End of Rains" boat festival, two days in the Angkor Wat area, finishing with shopping in Bangkok.

Alex was prompt and knowledgeable in providing suggestions for our personalized travel. The travel was thoroughly enjoyable. Accommodations suggested by Alex in response to our request for places that were central but not mainstream more than met our expectations.
Coordination of pickups and transfers were flawlessly reliable. The guides chosen did a great job.

If you want a customized trip to this area of the world we can't think of a better way to do it. Best compliment we could pay is that if we were to travel to the area again our first step would be to connect with Alex once more.

“Very nice trip in south Laos with Xplore Asia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

We have organised, via internet, a customized trip in the south of Laos with Xplore Asia : Bolaven plateau, Champasak, 4000 islands. Everything went smoothly, in spite of sometime difficult conditions due to hard rain, thanks to the quality of our guide.
Hotels and accomodations where very nice : big, clean and nicely furnished rooms, and nice people.
The guide proposed many stops (markets, craftsmen) that were not in the description of the trip : there are plenty to see in south Laos, and people are very friendly.
