We booked the tour to the Num Ngum Dam. It cost us around Aus$ 480.- but that was because it was only two of us. If you get a larger group together it will be a lot cheaper per... read more

My partner and I had an absolute blast seeing the best of Vientiane with Noy our guide. He was so informative and his wealth of knowledge of the area and its rich history was incredible. We did the 30km bike ride and 16km kayak along the Mekong river. At $66US per person we were expecting a lot from this and... More

For years I have wanted to visit Long Cheng, north of Vientiane, in central Laos. Long Cheng village is in an isolated valley in Xaysomboun Province. It is of interest to me because of its historical significance: it was the former CIA/Air America base and headquarters for General Vang Pao and his Hmong Army during the 'Secret War' in Laos...

I found all correspondence with Green discovery prior to the trip to be fast and helpful. We booked a 2day tour but had to change it to a 1day tour last minute due to illness and they gave us a full refund of the difference. The tour itself was quite pricey but was well organised and the guides and lunch... More

Advertise that they have "people already booked" on a bunch of tours on a board outside but quoted the pretty astronomical private tour price when I asked how much. When I pointed that out the guy shrugged and admitted they just put the sign out to get people to come in. Which isn't exactly uncommon or surprising in this part... More

First of all the comments are not towards the guides that accompanied us as I think a lot of the negatives were out of their control. We did the full day biking and kayaking excursion. The bikes were in terrible condition to the point of being unsafe. We refused to take one of them and had to go to a... More

With 3 days to spend in Vientiane and wanting to see a few sights in particular we went looking for a tour company to talk to.
