We wanted to get outside of city, but many of the itineraries offered by other tour companies seemed rushed or included activities we weren't interested in. after look through so many tour on the net, we finally decided to book with UME. We were very pleased with out tour and would recommend it to all wishing to experience Thai local life and enjoy beautiful nature in laos.
I highly recommend them and our guide, Mr. Jack, his knowledge and love of his country was contagious, and driver, Sambo. We could never have arranged an itinerary by ourselves that went as flawless.
Mrs. Eva and Ms. Phoebe are both our top guide and driver in Luang Prabang, they can always make your tour more special and memorable. Lot of experience. If you are reading this want to go on a real laos tour, then you have found the right place!

They are really good! After a missed flight showing up a day late he still made sure we could get out the following day. We are thankful for it. we did as our 4-week vacation in Southeast Asia.
