We really enjoyed our Shompoo cruise experience. The whole process was effortless from booking, getting to the border, assistance with visas and transfer to the boat dock and taking off. The boat was well captained, managed and maintained. The staff was friendly and at the ready for any of our needs. The food was fantastic and the views could not... More

This cruise was magic and the staff are just amazing. If you have the time and don't want to sit on one of the over crowded boats take this. Also, the rumours are true, the food really is good! Tip. They have charging points if you run out of battery on your camera from all the photos, dont worry.

We travelled from Xuay Xai to Pakbeng.(whole day) Comfortable boat, excellent guide. delicious lunch cooked and served on the boat. Beer very cheap. Stopped and visited a Kamu minority village - wonderful experience. The following day the boat continued to Luang Prabang but we did not do that leg. Views of all the like on the banks of the mekong

This is an excellent cruise down a very quiet part of the Mekong. The boat is very comfortable with enough room to move about or just relax and enjoy the fantastic scenery. Food onboard was excellent. Basic drinks available on board, no wine. I have made the trip twice, once in January and once in early March, be sure to... More

We were a little weary of the price as it was at least 3x the regular slow boat. But immediately, before we even entered Laos the fantastic service began. We were greeted and assisted through the border crossing (after a bit of very typical SE Asia confusion before we met our guy), then picked up another couple and headed to... More

Excellent boat tour from Luang Prabang to Huay Xai (sleeping in Pak Beng). The guide and family running the boat were wonderful (great food as well). There was enough space on the boat for everyone. Beautiful scenery virtually the whole trip. I also enjoyed a small stop at a Kamu village. I would definitely use Shompoo again.

We took a 2-day, upstream cruise from Luang Prabang to go to the Thai border. Comfortable ride, clean bathroom, good guide, safe ride, beautiful scenery. The family owning the boat was the sweetest even though we couldn't really communicate with them, they were always smiling and willing to help. The food was delicious. It can get a little long so...

All the recent reviews provide sufficient reason to.take this cruise. Besides the perfect introduction to Laos, wonderful scenery, wonderful cruise experience (for those who like river cruises and the slower pace of life). Add clean bathrooms and superb on-board lunch(s). Things that might be of help: 1) If you travelled Independently to Chiang Rai (CR), Ibis Style Hotels proves van... More
