This trip is great if you have a whole day free. Unfortunately the day before it rained continuously which meant we were told that our full day would be extended even longer. I was picked up just before 7am and did not return till just before 10pm which gives you an indication of how long the day was. Due to taking a diversion it meant the itinerary changed throughout the day, which was completely fine however the guide did not speak great English (which this tour specifies you would have) so he could not tell us much about where we would be going and how long it would take. This meant that it felt like we spent the majority of the day inside a mini bus. I am still unsure why this tour is so expensive because the only thing paid for is the White Temple everything else is free to see. Lunch as very basic too. £60-£70 is very expensive for this trip and I wouldnt recommend it to anyone unless they really wanted to see a palace and a river parting the countries at the golden triangle.

Game our guide was very knowledgable about the are and its history and shared it with us. The hot spring was not what we were expecting, very small and in the middle of a market, you can not sit in it because it is too small and too hot. just put your feet in. luckily we beat the hoards of Chinese tourists by 5 minutes. there is another pool that is super hot and a lady sells you eggs in a little basket that you put in the water and boil. The white temple is beautiful and worth the visit. We thought our tour included the long neck people but it doesnt any more. They took us there anyway but didnt pay for our entry which is 300 Baht. it is only a fake set up village for tourists anyway. it is not in the mountains where they really live. We missed the black house because we went to the long necks. Lunch was very nice at a nice restaurant on the Mekong with a great view of Laos. Too much food ! The golden triangle was very good and interesting. The trip back was very long
