Browse Our Custom Private Tours of Laos

Often overlooked but always making a lasting impression, Laos shows us a more laid-back, mellow Southeast Asia. At dawn, hundreds of alms-seeking monks brighten the streets of Luang Prabang with their impeccable orange robes. Outside the cities, farmers walk in sync with water buffalo through sparkling rice paddies, against a backdrop of misty sandstone cliffs, wispy Buddhist temples, and wild jungle landscapes. No doubt, more than the spectacular waterfalls, rivers, and caves, it’s the famously patient and gracefully unpunctual Laotians that will transform your experience. Backyard Travel offers tailor-made Laos private tours for travelers of all kinds. From relaxing luxury escapes and river cave expeditions, to jungle hiking adventures and cultural and culinary explorations — whatever your passions, our Laos travel agency can design a bespoke Laos trip just for you.

Absolutely! Wai Lin was amazing and helped me build my personalized itinerary from scratch with all the activities that I was most interested in. We worked together through the “What’s App” app. He was very responsive and readily available, energetic, supportive, and became a good friend in the process! I would highly recommend Backyard Travel to anyone looking to customize their own itinerary while having all hotels, guides, and transportation coordinated for them. Wai Lin was especially a pleasure to work with and was able to offer suggestions and advice while also being very open to my feedback and preferences. What an awesome trip it was!

The guide and the driver came to our hotel on time. We learnt a lot from them, including the history & the culture etc.Although the trip to Kong Lor cave is a long journey, it is comfortable within the car with air-conditioned, drinking water supply and our funny & joyful guide.

For what we received we were very disappointed with the cost. Yes, we visited what was listed but there were hiccups. Like, having to ask why we did not go to Plain of Jars 3 and then a hastily bit of organisation to actually go there later that afternoon. The reason – guide thought we were not interested. It was the best “Jars” site. That is what we wanted to see!! Lunch meals were very very average considering the amount of money the whole trip cost. Surely a cold soft drink and / or a beer could be offered as well, it wasn’t. There were also 2 other slight changes made to the itinerary to their benefit not ours.To end the trip, the guide said 4 times about arriving early in Vientiane – the reason, so he and the driver could get back home earlier than late. The trip should be about the customer not others. One hotel we stayed in for 2 nights was about 2km out of town. We wanted to have a look around but this distance proved prohibitive. While water was offered generously it was always hot and hence not drinkable for us. The 10 seater van was squashy for legroom unless you were the guide and sat next to the driver!

Kai was a fantastic guide, with a great personality and lots of knowledge. The tour was well organised, and we were very well looked after throughout our stay. Kai went out of his way to make sure we had the best experience in Luang Prabang. The trip was tailored to our preferences, we traveled in style and were able to eat and stay at fantastic locations.

What’s Special about Laos?

While the country may seem small on a map, the cultural and natural diversity of Laos could fill continents. Roam the French colonial streets of Vientiane, and let the Mekong lull you to daydreams. In between, take in the Lao way of life — a slow walk on a sunny afternoon by the river.

CHARACTER

Respect and patience are virtues in Laotian culture. The country’s easygoing people give their time freely and expect the same in return. Laotians are a frank, open, and polite people — often considered the most friendly and welcoming locals of Asia.

CLIMATE

While a bit chilly in the mountains, the months between November and March are arguably the best time for a visit, with mild temperatures and few downpours. Spring and early summer can be scorching, while the wet season runs from July to October.

ENTERTAINMENT

Bars and nightlife options, albeit somewhat limited, are concentrated in the tourist centers. For traditional entertainment, head to the Royal Theater in Luang Prabang and the National Opera Theater in Vientiane.

CULTURE

Laotian culture varies considerably across the ethnic groups of the country. Theravada Buddhism is practiced throughout the nation, with heavy influence in art, architecture, and daily life. Several regional customs, however, predate the introduction of Buddhism.

LANGUAGE

Lao is the official language of Laos but is spoken by only slightly more than half of the population. Especially in the countryside, you’ll often hear minority languages such as Khmu and Hmong. Road signs are written in Lao and French.

HISTORY

Founded as an independent kingdom in the 14th century, Laos was colonized by France in 1893. Laos gained its independence after WWII and suffered a series of ethnic conflicts and communist-bloc intrigues from which the nation is still recovering.
