We went on a day trip to visit 3 hilltribes with Jewel travel. I was a bit hesitant at first thinking it might be touristy visits to buy products rather than the cultural experience I sought but Suk, our driver and guide, was fantastic. He was very knowledge and easy to talk with. We learned alot! My only suggestion would... More

We did the two day trip, with trekking the first day and kayaking the second day. We loved the first day - walking through the jungle and several small villages, ending in the homestay in a somewhat bigger village. The second day I think was less value, we mostly waited around and kayaked a few hours down stream back to... More

Phai, our guide for the day, was very knowledgeable on the history and culture of Laos and its people. His English was excellent and it was a pleasure to be in his company. He is also a very good driver - very necessary on the winding and bumpy mountain roads. We travelled in a clean and comfortable air conditioned minibus,... More

I’m a fairly experienced traveller therefore realise there can be a bit of poetic license with some tour descriptions, but this company take the biscuit!! Our pick up was over an hour, with very little apology which was not a good start! The tour advertised was definitely not the tour we got! Advertised as 3 hours in a boat (1... More

I am writing specifically about Jewel Travel in Nong Khiaw. We did a day trek with them, and although the area is beautiful, our experience was much less beautiful. We were promised everything at the shop. However we started late, the guide spoke no english and we sort of went through it without knowing what is going on. It is... More

We booked and paid for rock climbing with Jewel travel. When we arrived there, the rock climbing equipment was rusty and damaged. As a rock climber I know what to look for, and their equipment was not safe. We told them as much, and that we did not want to go on the tour with unsafe equipment, and they did... More

We are sorry that you were not satisfied with our services but unfortunately you did not mention in your review that, at the last minute, you had canceled the first rock climbing trip because you had said you were sick. Transport, food and guide were already prepared for the first trip and we lost money on that, which is why... More

This company offers great day trips! First day we took a private boat along the Mekong to see the Buddha caves. The next day we did a mountain biking tour which took us across the river through beautiful rice paddy fields, mountains and villages. The last day we did a kayaking day trip to the Tad Sae waterfall and further... More

I have done one day tour in Luang Prabang with Jewel Travel just 2 weeks ago (July 2016), covering caves, waterfall and elephant ride.
