A Recent Review of this tour

Chansay is friendly and always helpful. And willing to accommodate us (We totally changed the 2nd day itinerary). He also pays attention to our dietary restrictions (And knows the locations of halal restaurants in Vientiane & Vang Vieng). We had a really wonderful time. Thank you.
