There are some 4000 statyes abd statyettes in the caves, mostly of the Buddha, many stukk covered with paper thin gilding.

Amazing experience! The guide - Mr Thin - spoke excellent English and gave us helpful insights. I was also lucky that the tour group was also a lovely group of people. A wonderful way to spend the day!

This was an excellent day trip. It was a very good combination of a relaxing river cruise, sightseeing, beautiful waterfalls (with very few people there at the end of the day). The lunch was amazing and our tour guide was absolutely fantastic. I would highly recommend this tour.

This was a very good tour. The boat trip down the Mekong River was very nice, and the beach area were the tour first landed and spent close to an hour was lovely, as the view from the beach area of the mountains was magnificent, Then, we headed to the Pak Ou caves. The climb to the cave to the left of the landing is quite steep but well worth the climb, as this cave contains the nicest collection of Buddhist statues. The remaining climb to the cave on the right side of the mountain is not steep after climbing to the left cave. There is no need to bring flashlights as the caves are decently lit (although all of the guidebooks tell you to bring a flashlight.) Do wear sneakers or comfortable walking shoes. After visiting the Pak Ou caves, the van ride to the Kuang Si Waterfalls is fine. The Kuang Si Waterfalls is much more than waterfalls. It is a large park that contains rescued black bears and the viewing areas are great, especially the one that one is behind the glass-enclosed area. There are other animals and birds in this park as well as lovely flowers. The waterfalls are very nice and you should climb to the top of the trail, as I guarantee that you will be taking pictures of the numerous waterfalls as you go through the trail. As you can see, this is a full day tour and you should return back to Luang Prabang close to sunset, around 5:30 PM (if you do this tour in the winter months). Please know that this was my second trip to Luang Prabang and it was worth re-taking this Viator tour. I highly recommend doing it if you plan to visit Luang Prabang. Also, do not miss having great Laotian-French fusion food when you visit this lovely place.

River cruise was great, caves and waterfalls are awesome, and lunch at the elephant camp was lovely. Mr. Thin is a great guide as well.
Could have done without the stops at the two villages... tourist traps
