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

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

We booked through their Luang Namtha office by email a few months before. The entire trek/kayaking itinerary was well planned out and coordinated. Experiences in the ethnic minority villages was absolutely delightful. The guide will explain almost... More
