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...

This one day was packed with activity - caving, tubing (in a cave), walking, a visit to an Hmong village and kayaking. Great BBQ lunch and local guide was friendly and made the day fun. Small group so could stop where we wanted to. Very good value.

Did the full day caving, trekking and kayaking. Had Ming as our guide and he was very good, full of knowledge and good English. He took good care of us and was open and friendly. We really enjoyed our day and had a great time. The only downside was seeing all the drunk backpackers tubing down the river.
