Greatest meal and view I've ever had. One of the most demanding civilian treks I've been on because I was with a group of young people 13 years younger than me. The guide was amazing. Great cooks! They provided traditional Lao food for 3 meals. And probably the best doob I've ever had on top of a mountain in my... More

We were lucky to start our tour on a medium hot day - but it still was very challenging! After about 2 hours of trecking and a lunch break, we started climbing up a trail - also about 2 hours! When you reach the hut, the amazing view will definitely compensate the effort!! In the evening we went abseiling a... More

We did the 1 day kayaking and caving tour at $40 each (cheaper the bigger the group) and while it was good, it is overpriced for what we actually did. As far as the description of the tour we were told we would kayak for a lot longer than we actually did. I felt we did a lot of sitting... More

We decided to book a kayaking trip with Green Discovery as Lonely Planet said they were the most reliable tour company in Vang Vien and, being much older than most travellers, we didn't want to take too many risks! We were picked up from our hotel and it soon became apparent there would only be ourselves and Jeemeng, our guide,... More

This has been the highlight of our South East Asia trip so far. We went on a two day hike in the mountains of Vang Vieng with our instructor Meng and his two helpers - Lian and Kao! On the first day we hiked up the steep mountains, and then abseiled down the amazing 50m waterfall. We then were later... More

We had an incredible experience on the vang vieng challenge. Words cannot describe how much fun this tour was!!! The hike was a little difficult but extremely rewarding. The views are exquisite and the ziplinning is the most fun I have ever had. Our guide Ming was amazing and very helpful. We felt completely safe with him and his team... More

While in Vang Vieng, we decided to try out a guided half-day Kayaking tour with Greenleaf. It was one of the most memorable experiences of our journey! Our guide John spoke good English, had a great sense of humour and was very competent in navigating us through the few "rapids" and rocky parts the Nam Song River has. The journey... More

We very much enjoyed our tour with Green Discovery. We went on a one day tour consisting of walking in caves, tubing in caves, walking through a local village and the country side, and then kayaking down the river. Our group consisted of 1 guide, 1 helper, and 5 clients. The guide was very helpful and patient with the group,... More

A few days ago my husband and I booked what was advertised as a day trek in the mountains near Vang Vieng,Laos. We did not book this through a 3rd person or hotel but went directly to the Green Discovery office so we could discuss the options in person and check out what would be really feasible for us. We...
