It was a positive surprise that the short train ride over the Friendship Bridge was already included. Unfortunately, the driver left earlier because other guests needed to go to the other border point due to their e-visa, but another driver could call him. The van ride was then very good, we could even stop at an atm on the way to get some cash to pay the hostel.

It all worked - lots of waiting/slowness for the train across the river and the visa on arrival, but the guy was there to take us - efficiently but in a very old van partly stuck together with glue - to our hotel. All fine.

The process to get from Nong Khai to Vientiane is a little cumbersome but the instructions provided by 12Go were clear. The train was delayed leaving Nong Khai as the engine would not start but otherwise everything went smoothly

Once you pass the Laos border and you do the immigration check at Thanaleng, you are supposed to encounter the van that takes you to Vientiane but this in my experience didn’t happen. No one was there and no one knew anything, so they try convince you to pay a taxi but don’t. Ask someone to use their phone and call the emergency number in your reservation ticket and eventually the guy that was supposed to pick you up will arrive.

All fairly good but was dropped off at train station where couldn't get bus north which is where most people are heading so had to get half hour tuk tuk across town. Not very useful drop off point.
