The guide spoke excellent English and was more than willing to answer all of my questions (I had a lot). Really enjoyed learning more about life in Laos.

Talking to our guide was great, the young ex novice shared his experiences and knowledge about Buddhism. He was really kind and fun to be around. I highly recommended the tour to everyone I spoke to when I was in Luang Prabang.

Both tours were great! It was amassing to hear about the experience of our guide as a novice and be able to ask him questions about Buddhism and life in a monastery. The guided meditation was also a great experience! Our guide explained everything and we practiced twice. A great morning in Luang Prabang!

This is an excellent opportunity for anyone to learn more about temples around Laos and a day in the life of a monk. You will meet a monk who is currently not practising and he will thoroughly explain to you the rules of a monk, the do’s and don’t’s of a monk and as a tourist and he will show you the different ways of meditating. It is culturally so insightful and I learnt things that I’ll carry with me throughout the rest of my travels. The whole thing lasts around 2-3 hours.
