Want to kayak for a full day-this is it!

We booked with VLT because we wanted to paddle more than just a few hours, as is the case in most of the half-day trips. Pick up on time, then a 45 min paddle to the (funny... read more

I booked a minivan transfer with them to Luang Prabang. They never picked me up! After 40min wait I called them to follow up. They said they had forgotten to pick me up and the mini van went alredy! They squeezed me into an old bus going few hours later...not what I paid for! I wasted few hours of my... More

We booked with VLT because we wanted to paddle more than just a few hours, as is the case in most of the half-day trips. Pick up on time, then a 45 min paddle to the (funny) tourist-gathering: cave and elephant cave. Stayed there about an hour incl lunch, and then the real trip started. 3 hours of paddling down...

The four of us were picked up in town and driven 15 minutes to the kayak start. Flotation jackets are compulsory and we were put in two man kayaks. Basic instruction was given safety, how to kayak and how to follow the leader. The river is a bit low this time of year which meant a bit of maneuvering through... More

There are so many tour companies and they have same things. Tubing, zipline, Kayaking, and so on. You can choose some of them and organize a package and price is almost same for everywhere. I think there are collusion between companies. You can bargain the price a little but I think there will not be a huge difference between a... More

We had an unexpectedly great tour with VLT the other day. We chose full day, caves and tubes. Our guide was Thau and we loved him. He didn't speak the best English, but just enough to be informative. He seemed obsessed with taking us to quiet places, or less touristed parts of touristy places, which was greatly appreciated! There were... More

Took a half day kayak and tubing tour. Just the two of us plus a guide. We were meant to go to/through a cave as part of the tour but this didn't happen (with no explanation). The guide stayed with us for the tubing which was really unnecessary since it was so gentle. He made us stop at a bar... More

I found most of the tour operators to be operating pretty much the same trips, and most catering exclusively for the backpacker scene. However this company had some different trips which were better suited to us, as we were honeymooning. We booked a hot air balloon trip at dawn and a romantic dinner on a bit of beach by the...

We have 3 children aged 9, 8 and 5 and booked the 4 caves with kayaking tour. Picked up promptly at 9, we went off for the day. Our guide was Leo, and he fantastic. He pitched the tour at the right level for the kids and also helped us with the youngest climbing up the more difficult parts and... More

I booked a half day walking tour ( no kayaking) as I wanted to take photos of the Vang Vieng area. It was a great experience - mostly due to the great guide Leo. I can imagine if I had had a different guide with less interest or a lower level of English it would have be a less fun... More
