Only company to do all day kayaking and cave tubing. Water somewhat low due to season,but had some small rapids. Lunch included at cave stop. All guides excellent. Very fun!

“Kayaking - A great alternative to tubing!”
Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

We were unsure about whether tubing was something we wanted to do so went for the day kayaking trip instead and I'm so glad we did! We were driven about 30 kilometers out of town to start our trip and made are way back down river to town. Along the way we stopped for tubing in some caves and lunch. The tour was well organised, ensuring we didn't have to wait too long for the caves and the lunch was good. At this time of year the water is very low and we weren't expecting the little rapidy sections we needed to navigate, they were easy enough, but just be aware of these if you aren't to water confident! The scenery was beautiful and as we got closer to town we also met the people tubing and stopped at one of the bars for a drink and some volleyball. Seeing the people tubing assured us we had made the right decision, the river was moving so slowly and its just too cold!

“Enjoyable trip with Vone from VLT Natural Tours”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

We booked the local tour for 8D/7N with vone. The trip starts from VT to VV & then LP & to Ba Nan. We loved VV & LP. Didnt spend much time in VT though. Overall it was enjoyable trip with this tour agency. Vone was accomodative & Pon the drive was good with his driving skills when we crossed over the mountains. We spent 3 days in VV doing caving, trekking, kayaking, tubing. It was truly an experience for the tubing into the cave. In LP, we had the donations of food to the monks from the temple. It was great too!

“VLT can organize unusual trips as well”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

We enjoy spelunking and Vang Vieng area is full of the caves. Prior to the arrival we contacted Vone from VLT and told him that we would like to explore some caves mor in depth then just half an hour. He offered us Tham Hoi.

When we arrived to VV and confirmed the caving expedition, we have learned that this is not something that has ever been organized by any agency, and Vone is pioneering this trip to see if there may be a more demand in future. He organized two local guides for us who have been in part of the cave, supplied them with a rope and candles to mark the rest of the way so that we do not get lost. Clearly he wanted to make this trip happen for us, yet was aware that there may be some potential dangers and prepared for them.
We had absolutely wonderful time exploring the cave for 5 hours.

For the next day we organized a kayaking/ visit to couple other caves and Vone assigned us a guide who was very patiently waiting in front of two caves while we explored them independently.

Highly recommend this agency as it did fulfill the promise without any glitch.
