Chansay was the near perfect guide and driver. He picked us up on time everyday in his clean, comfortable van. The sights on the tour were varied and his knowledge of history, religion, culture enriched out trip. Chansay is personable, neat, helpful, attentive and accommodating- noting or likes and needs. His driving skill is great on what are challenging roads. His English is good but difficult for a non-native speaker English to understand completely.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Nancy and Kazu for enjoying your time in Laos. Thank you for your feedback too. I will make the blue lagoon optional for clients in future :) Take care!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Chansay. He was friendly and knowledgable. He provided insightful points of interest as we travelled in the city; explained the history of Vientiane and nearby Thailand and Cambodia; answered a wide range of questions: economic, political, historical and cultural. I highly recommend Chansay as a top guide in Vientiane, Laos.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! ��

Chansay was very flexible. He picked me up at the airport even though I arrived fairly late, I checked into the hotel and he then showed me around the Night Market. It was a really nice evening. The next day we saw about as much of Vientiane as possible in one day! After our day of touring the city he took me by the hotel for my luggage and back to the airport. Very informative about the city, country and the people.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Gregory, Thank you for taking time to write me a good review. I hope that short tour will leave you good memories :)

Chan was an excellent tour guide. He is extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic and kind. He speaks very good English and was completely open to my input on the days itinerary. His vehicle is very nice, new and clean and he had plenty of water on hand for the day. He was interesting to talk to about general Laos life as well as the specifics of the sites that we visited. I highly recommend Chan's tour! It was the perfect blend of city sites and sites farther afield such as friendship bridge and buddha park.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Tobin, Great to have you in Laos and enjoyed me showing you a bit of my country, culture and people. When are you coming back again? :) Khop Chai for enjoying my tour.

It was my second excellent tour guided by Chansay. Apart from being very knowledgeable and professional, he was also very flexible in arranging the itinerary for the places to visit. He provided detailed introduction on the places we visited. The whole tour was very smooth and enjoyable. He also made very good recommendations on dining and shopping places outside the tour. He was such an excellent ambassador of Laos to visitors. Chansay is highly recommended to any travellers visiting Laos.

It was a very enjoyable tour guided by Chansay. Everything was very smooth under his arrangements. He was very knowledgeable and introduced to me a lot of history and information about Laos and the places we visited. He was also very attentive throughout the tour. The itinerary was widely designed that I was shown the very local places like markets and in contact with the locals. I also enjoyed some local street food recommended by Chansay. I would highly recommend Chansay to any travellers visiting Laos.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for your kind response. It's my pleasure to guide you while you're in Laos :)

It is very well tour that covers the majority of the amazing points of interest and attractions in Laos. The tour was well defined and organized and allowes one to be familiarized with the history of Laos and its present. It is the specific and pleasant feature of the tour to carry out it together with Chansay N. Thank you so much.

Pros: Guide was very knowlaheble of history and his country Cons: HD is charging $20 per person for museum tickets on which he spends about $8 He brought us to the expensive restaurant(for Lao standards) and the food was not that great All over this was just OK tour but way to expensive for what it was. $130 for 2 peaple. Get your hotel atrange driver for you to all these places and would cost you $60 for 6 hours

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am sorry you did not enjoy a guided tour with me. I will improve myself to give better services to my customers. So the cost for tickets is USD 8 and government tax is USD 10. I'm sorry you did not enjoy restaurant food. If you let me know , I could bring you for street food. Yes, you are correct. Hotels here can arrange a driver to send you to places. However, most Laos drivers do not speak English and they are not trained guide.

Chan was terrific. He communicated well before the tour and arrived early to my hotel. His English is good and he is passionate about guiding. Over the day, he fielded questions about the history, sports, economy, foreign policy, marital customs, and language of Laos. The pace of the tour was flexible and he slowed in the spots where I wanted more time. I highly recommend him!!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow!! Such awesome feedbacks. I'm loving it :) Thank you very much for your kind appreciation of my service. Thank you for visiting Laos and please come again to visit us in future.

Chansay was the best. He picked us up on time and took us to the different attractions in Vientiane and also the night market. He also made sure we were had enough water and went to a restaurant based on his recommendation. He dropped us off at the airport on time. He was very friendly and I would recommend him again.

Chansay was everything we wanted in a guide. He was early on arrival, extremely polite and emphasised flexibility. His English is excellent and he is obviously very well educated. His van was luxurious and incredibly well upholstered and maintained. It was "our holiday" and he was prepared to go wherever we wanted although he had a ready list of must-sees. He has a wonderful ability to inform when required but then to quietly let us chat- thus giving him an idea of what we wanted. Worth every penny!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow wow!! Khop chai lai lai, Niall. Thank you so much for that wonderful review :) Wish you all the best all the way from Laos ! Chansay

Chansay was a great guide. Very friendly and a good traveling companion. He was very accommodating and was willing to do whatever I wanted. I particularly liked all the stops to both meet and eat with local people. Also the diver was very careful and never drove while talking on a cell phone unlike many I have the misfortune to encounter.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sabaidee Stephen! Thank you for your kind response. I enjoyed being with you too :) You're easy going and that made my work very easy. And I'm glad you like to meet the locals and experience Laos lifestyle. Hope to meet you another day!

Date: Dec 24/17

Our trip through Laos with Chansay was fantastic and went off without a hitch. Chansay was very well informed, prompt and friendly, professional and open to changes in itinerary. The itinerary allowed a large sampling of the country from Vientiane to Vang Vien to Phonsavan (Plain of Jars) to Luang Prabang. There was a lot of travel time in the car which should get better with improved roads and the new railroad.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback. I will keep trying my best and offer a better service.

Chansay was terrific, altering itinerary mid-tour to accommodate our preferences and giving us time at the things we were more interested in. By the end of the day we felt we had a great feel of Vientiane today, and a perception of its history, religion and current developments. Our teenage kids had a great time too. Thanks Chansay!

Chansay developed an itinerary for us based on our interests. His program delivered all that was promised and more. We had a truly wonderful 5 day road trip with memorable highlights every day. Chansay's ability to educate us about Lao culture and values occurred through dialogue and his generous sharing of his own life experiences and values. Chansay is an outstanding ambassador for Lao and for tours by Locals.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lianne, Thank you for your kind response and the 5* award. Hope you like that little information about Laos. All the best and hope to see you again! Chansay
