Other reviewers have said it before; Green Discovery only makes sense if you have a big group going for a trip. I've done three trips with them now, mainly because I live in Laos and I'm desperate to get outdoors from time to time, but I pay a hefty price for that addiction. Unlike in Japan or the US, trials... More

We signed up for a day sightseeing tour from Vientiane to Vang Vieng. I guess we didn't realize exactly how far it was and how long and boring the car ride would be. We spent a total of 7 hours in the car for less than an hour at the caves. We did stop at a "Hmong" market that was... More

I really enjoyed the trip in general and have only great things to say about our guide, John, and also Ban who was also with us. John was helpful, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and in great shape. The hike itself was VERY strenuous with... More

An excellent, but pricey (US $253/two people) day trip. Guide (Noy) was most knowledgeable and made this one of the best trips we have ever been on. We visited two markets, the dam, a salt mine, buddhas carved out of rock and went on a one hour boatride around the lake. Only disappointment - the dreadful restaurant where we had... More

Dear Rick! Thank you for the nice review! ans yes, I would agree this tour can be pricey for 2 people. Typically this tour engages a lot of fix costs like a car and driver for the day, a guide and a boat. These costs are normally shared by the participants and therefore if we have 4 people in the...

This is the one day kayaking trip starting and/or finishing in Vang Vieng or Vientiane, depending on what you want. We were travelling in a group of five and had two guides with us - one carrying the food and dry bags containing our valuables and the other showing us the way and pointing out interesting things along the trip....

Decided to book a tour for a city discovery, it sure beats walking around in the heat. It was good to see all the main points of interest in the city and having a guide made it more interesting as he told us the history behind all the places we visited. Tour included chilled water and a lovely buffet lunch.... More
