About
Orange Robe Tours is a profit-for-purpose social enterprise, based in Luang Prabang, Laos. We employ former Novices and Monks who have recently left the temple to lead culturally appropriate tours. This provides much-needed support during the transition from temple life to layperson life for our guides, and helps in the overall preservation of the traditional culture and customs of Laos.

This tour was amazing. We learnt a lot about Buddhism (not the writing:)
The friendly young man explained everything in a good English. He was very open to our questions and gave us a good Idea about living as a Novice or as a monk in these wats.

I cannot recommend the temple and meditation tour enough. This is not just dry information. This is a precious insight into temple life in Laos and how it is to grow up as a monk. I travel a lot and try to stay away from mainstream tours and groups, but this experience is unique and I highly recommend it.0

Before doing this tour, I knew practically nothing about Buddhism or meditation, and I wanted to get the "101 introduction". This tour definitely exceeded expectations. I learned many fascinating things and got to ask the guide anything. Highly recommended.

The Orange Robe Tour is a fantastic way to learn about Buddhist life in Laos. Our guide was very informative and drew on a lot of his own experiences as a former novice. Highly reccomend it to anyone visiting Luang Prabang.

Si was very knowledgeable and answered any questions that we had. I learned so much about Buddhism as well as misconceptions surrounding it. I would definitely recommend this tour.

I took part in a very informative tour about Buddhism in Laos. I could ask any question. The guide, a former monk, had a lot to tell. He also taught me some meditation techniques. I enjoyed the tour very much. I am very grateful for that experience.

It was an extraordinary experience for me to be able to talk to a former novice about Buddhism and his experiences with it. The "guide" imparted a lot of interesting information about Buddhism and life as a monk in a very open manner. I came back with many answers, but also many new questions. The introduction to meditation techniques was also very interesting. I can fully recommend the tour.

This was an exceptional and unique experience. Sy was very informative on the practices of Buddhism and the way of life of the novices. This was not just a highlight of my trip, but a reference point in my journey through life. Orange robe tours is a great way to get underneath the surface of the usual temple tours. I highly recommend.

We attended both the tour and meditation. The tour was more an interactive discussion about the customs and traditions of Laos, Buddhism, and culture in Luang Prabang than a traditional tour to see things - but that is exactly what we needed to better appreciate the sights, people, and places we experience here. The guided meditation took place in a wat and was also a wonderful experience. Would highly recommend this small group tour for any visitor to Laos!
