We did the two day one night Express Tour, simply because we felt that the 3day was too expensive. We had a great morning walking and zipping through the jungle, the walking was hard work in the heat but it was all worth it. We had a small group so we moved fast thought the Zips, the second group on... More

It was hard work for us (the youngest was 65 years old) but well worth the effort. The uphill walk took about an hour and was not easy, but the guides split us into groups so that the slowest could take their time. Living in a tree-house for three days/two nights was an amazing experience and we were all glad... More

The Gibbon Experience We had been anticipating our Gibbon Experience for 8 months with a mixture of excitement and a bit of fear. Would it be safe? What would the food be like? Was it really such a long drive and hike? Would it be worth the cost (which as many note is very high for this part of the... More

I don't know about the three day tours, but unless all you want is a couple of hours on zip lines and seventeen hours in a treehouse, and you're willing to pay more than any other group tour in Laos and Thailand, then Express would be a good choice. First of all, the website description and name is no longer... More

We had a great time doing the gibbon experience. It's not cheap, especially for Laos, but it is worth every penny! Sleeping in a tree house above the canopy was awesome. We didn't see any gibbons but had so much fun zip lining around the forest. Meals were good and the guides were great. This is not something that can... More

The Gibbon Experience was an unforgettable 5* experience. Our Guides, Kee and Koh have been excellent and we had a lot of fun on the Ziplines. They made sure that everything is secure and took great videos and pictures from and with us. Kee speaks good English and could explain a lot about the Jungle and Laos. The small treehouse... More

We did the Express Tour and it was just great! The organisation, the guides, the hiking and of course the zip-lining were amazing. We spent such a good time out there! Special Thanks to our guides Kee and Kong (I am not sure about the right spelling...) PS: There was more than enough food!

Overall it was a great experience. Did the express tour. Email contact could be improved. And I expected more information about the project and forrest life from our guide. But Zip lining and the night in the treehouse were spectacular!

The gibbon experience is absolutely fantastic! It was my second time and I can't wait to enjoy it again. It mix up a childish tree house dream with floresta preservation and flying super powers. Only once you are above The Valleys on fantastic zip lines you can understand the magnitude of this experience. The guides are friendly and knowledgable, the... More
