With 20 years of experience in travel to Laos,
this is how our agency was born
I was lucky to grow up in the world of tourism in Asia. At the age of 15, in 1993, my parents opened their own agency in Thailand and then in Laos.
It was in 2000, at the age of 22, that I started working for the family agency as a tracker of itineraries to meet the tribes. These tours were at the time intended for European travel catalogs.
Following their retirement, it was at the beginning of the 2010s that I started to create "my baby" ORLA Tours. Now, as a team, we put all this experience at the service of our travelers to create unique and tailor-made trips.
I started my career in tourism in 1999 after graduating from the French department of the National University of Laos in Vientiane.
First as guide then manager of a team of guides, my role was to guarantee the cohesion between your expectations and the important role of the guide, which that exchanges with ethnic groups, are beneficial for everyone.
My 21 years of experience brought me a knowledge of the country in every corner which today allows me to create with my team, trips far from mass tourism.

Our humanitarian commitment
in collaboration with local populations
Our association Enfants du Laos (Children of Laos) develops access to education in ethnic villages. Our aim is to enable tribe children to have a better future on their own.
These villages have a lack of resources and school supplies. That is the reason why we do our best to develop educational infrastructures.
In the meantime, our long-term goals are to provide sustainable support and autonomy to families. And therefore contribute to the education of their children and ensure a more serene professional future.
