Staff from the guest house were great and helpful. On bus I shared my bed with someone else and had a tiny place to sleep. Fine by me as I’m a small person. But I couldn’t sleep a sec bcs our driver was driving really fast and honking all the time.

Friendly operators from start to finish and very helpful with border crossing and sim cards.

I like this... It wasn't hassle like I experienced on the way to Vientiane from Bangkok... It was a direct bus from Vientiane to Bangkok... Everything was okay...i was informed from the time you leave... :) thanks

Great. Left it till last minute to pick us up but suppose can understand the logistical probs.
bus Premium, Naga Travel, May 2, 2019
All good. Lovely people running the service. Just a suggestion, maybe have the meeting place for pickup at a place where people can escape the heat while the wait for the driver. Thank you

I bought the ticket via 12go and I am aware that they are only selling the ticket and are not operating the buses. The bus had 12-15 passengers, give or take, during the tour. The trip between Vientiane and Luang Prabang was interesting and I can summarize it as: Pro: - We made it all the way without any incidents . That said there was several near-misses and some serious incidents observed on the way (see below) - The driver of the bus was politely and friendly - The air-con was not to cold (which is often a problem on this buses) - Plenty of stops en-route (might be annoying for some) ensured that the engine - and most importantly - the brakes could cool down before continue the ride. Con: - We observed a truck involved in a "front to front" collision with another heavy vehicle. This caused some delays both southbound and northbound. - We observed an incident involving two motorcycles with at least two fatalities. Shocking! - I showed up the 1 hour before pick up (as instructed on the ticket) just to experience that I had to wait for 1 hour and 20 minutes for the pick-up. - At the bus station there was some confusion about which bus to take, wen it was leaving etc, but it was sorted out in the end. - The bus was old, noisy and had seen better days. But remember- this is Laos - The roads was bumpy, and to some extent, unpaved. But remember- this is Laos

Good trip, good service, beds quite small for 2 people but not much you can do about that! Actually a quite enjoyable 20 hour bus ride!!

-do not state which bus terminal. Yes, they’re opposite and I was fortunate in having not much luggage as I went to the wrong one. Others had a lot to carry across the main road! -very hard to find the bus counter as one is inclined to look for Naga Travel when it’s actually something like ‘99’ -Company did not and still have not responded to my email sent 5 days before bus. If they had, I could have gone to the right terminal... -snacks were nice -sleeper bus never chanted at Laos border. Just reclining seats -toilet had no light or flush and smelt the whole bus within an hour of departure -driver was smoking and it filtered to the coach through the endless ‘no smoking’ signs... But, as all the other reviews are the same comments, Naga Travel clearly has no intention of doing anything!

Everything is good, except there is no charging station

It was not a sleeper bus. The only quality that could hint to a sleeper bus is that the seat reclined a bit. Only problem was that if you actually did recline the (highly uncomfortable) seat back it hits the person behind you and takes away the already non excisting leg space. In the ticket it said that it could be an older bus but that once you crossed the boarder the bus would change into a sleeper class bus. It did not. The bus ride lasted abou 20-21 hours so you can imagine the joy. I was quite dissapointed as was the whole bus full of people. I am quite short (5'2/157cm) but I left the bus with sore legs, back, neck and arse. I dont want to imagine what it would have been like for someone taller. The thought that kept occurring to me during the journey was: my school bus at home is more comfirtable than this. At least there's wifi on that. On a positive note the staff was very nice, the snacks they gave were good as well and you meet a lot of nice, new people who also think the bus is horrible. That's at least something to bond over.

We didn’t change into a sleeperbus. The bus was okay but not for 20 hours. Very late stop to get dinner.
bus AC Seater, Naga Travel, Mar 25, 2019
They picked us up from our hostel. Left the bus terminal an hour late but I think that’s okay. Thank you!
bus Express, Naga Travel, Mar 13, 2019
The staff were nice and very helpful and explained what was going on and sold us SIM cards. Luckily we were a couple so the seat/bed that you have to share was fine, but if you’re on your own may be slightly weird sharing with a stranger as they’re not large.

Really not a good experience. If I did it again I would pay the small amount more and take a private taxi
bus AC Seater, Naga Travel, Mar 7, 2019
The bus was late Aircon didn’t work to it fullest Sketchy road, but the driver handled it very well
bus VIP 24, Naga Travel, Mar 4, 2019
More than 1 hour late bus with no explanation, different kind of vehicle
bus AC Seater, Naga Travel, Feb 28, 2019
We were expected to leave at 0900hrs but left at 1000hrs. Very disappointed
bus Premium, Naga Travel, Feb 27, 2019
- The information about boarding and the pickup point was inadequate. - There was a delay of 1,5 hour. - The bus was nice and clean. - The staff was friendly.
bus AC Seater, Naga Travel, Feb 26, 2019
we were packed into a mini bus for over 4 hours. 2 passengers had to sit on tiny pull down seats and virtually had their knees around their ears !

The problem is GoAsia. They sell a trip that does not exist. It said Naga travel leaving 9am. But there is no Naga 9am trip from vientiane, only the 9.30 Soutchai one. This one left only after 10am. Trip itself fine.
bus VIP 24, Naga Travel, Feb 13, 2019
We booked on 12go.asia. Unfortunatly they charged more to book the bus than the cost of the bus itself. If you book the bus with a local travel shop or at the bus terminal itself it’s much cheaper. On the site it’s also sold as an VIP bus, when it’s just a normaal sleepingbus with not much of sleepingspace.
bus Express, Naga Travel, Feb 12, 2019
22 hours with no sleeping bus. No lights at the toilet and was smelling really bad. Hopefully i had bought some snacks and water because the bus did no stop for this until 19 hours later. Good thing is that drivers seemed friendly and could understand English.
bus AC Seater, Naga Travel, Feb 10, 2019
This was a surprisingly comfortable journey in a pretty good bus. The Air con worked and the seats were comfortable. We were late starting and late arriving but just by 30 mins which isnt bad.
bus AC Seater, Naga Travel, Feb 1, 2019
Was not happy at all. The bus was late by two hours and there was no communication to when the bus was arriving.
bus AC Seater, Naga Travel, Feb 1, 2019
The bus was very nice. New and clean seats. AC level just ok. The road a bit bumpy
bus VIP 24, Naga Travel, Jan 31, 2019
Considering the road is so bad the driver managed it wonderful, but don't expect to arrive on time or sleep much: it is too bumpy. No toilet on board, the driver stopped periodically and we had to pay to use toilet. Bed was clean and water was provided :)

My schedule changed and I did not go. Arrived in Chiang Mai too late to go. Since it was non-refundable, just lost only money this time.

Upgraded from mini van to ac bus. An hour delay and very confusing staff. But the ride was fine
bus VIP 24, Naga Travel, Jan 29, 2019
We were booked for a VIP24 bus. A day or 2 before our trip we were contacted that it required to be changed to a van. We agreed, no problem. When we showed up to the bus terminal were were guided to a van, not in the greatest shape??? OK?? Once the trip started and we got into the mountains all of us passengers realized 2 things. The van was old and might not make the trip, and the driver did not know how to drive in the mountains. It was clear to all of us that there were better vans because ALL of them passed us as we crawled up and down the mountain pass in 1st gear. What should have been a comfortable 4 hour trip, became an uncomfortable 6 hour trip. !!!!!!!!! Can't say I got any sort of a VIP service!!
bus AC Seater, Naga Travel, Jan 28, 2019
The mini bus was comfortable and the driver very experienced. There was a rest break in the middle. The journey took 4.5 hours. The road is shocking in parts but overall a good journey. The bus did not depart until 10am.
bus AC Seater, Naga Travel, Jan 26, 2019
The bus trip ride was fine. Found the office on the departure morning and walked in to check about how to get our luggage to the departure point, their office. They said they would pick us up at the hotel. We ended up leaving 1.5 hours late because they didn’t tell me all we had to do was find a way to get our luggage to their office 3 blocks from our hotel and we could leave on time. Instead we waited for their shuttle serve then on the bus to fill up.

The bus left a little late and the trip took longer than posted, but overall as avertised. Though, too many passangers were booked so some sat on plastic chairs in the isle.
bus Express Sleeper 41, Naga Travel, Jan 22, 2019
A bumpy ride, but quite okay, through the mountains. The bus didn’t have so much space, but the beds were fine for sleeping. At the paper it said we were supposed to leave at 18 pm but the bus took off at 20.30 pm. It also said a ride for about 13 hours, and were supposed to be in Luang Prabang at 7.00am. But the bus came in at 12pm. At the bus station tuktuk’s are ready to pick you up, but be aware that they drive you to city center and not the accommodation, even though you tell them where to go.

Trip was an adventure in itself. Can’t blame the driver but the agency, 12go Asia is a rip off paid more for VIP bus because I was travelling with kids and wanted to be comfortable but instead we had to hop into a minivan. Will not book through this agency again. Recommend you book locally yourself much more cheaper...
bus AC Seater, Naga Travel, Jan 17, 2019
Left an hour late after freebuggy pick up and transfer to coach. Ac, comfertable seats, one rest stop. Very, very bumpy roads. Arrived 1350. ????
bus VIP 36, Naga Travel, Jan 17, 2019
Just about the most uncomfortable bus I ever rode. How could this be called a VIP bus?
bus Express, Naga Travel, Jan 14, 2019
Stop all over the way, taking people from the villages
bus Standard AC, Naga Travel, Jan 7, 2019
Bus left at 08:30, arrived at just after 21:30. That's about an average of 25 km/hr for the 340 km journey. Roads are woeful, pot holes and washouts everywhere, however the driver was brilliant, slowing down for almost all potholes (but making the trip longer). Got a bottle of water and rest stops for 5-10 mins every 2 hrs. Comfortable and fell asleep a couple of times.
bus Express Sleeper 41, Naga Travel, Jan 3, 2019
As expected, a bumpy ride with several random stops where the driver deals with something inexplicable. Seats are an interesting set up; 3 rows of single bunks. You can lie back pretty far so it’s ok to sleep. No space for your small bag, so bring minimum only into bus and leave the rest in the luggage space below. It does get very cold so have socks and jumpers, scarves at the ready. Toilets had the funniest sign ‘allow to pee, not poo!’. Very narrow corridor between rows - can’t be too fat! Snack, tiny water bottle and blanket provided.

Our bus had an issue about 45 minutes after leaving the station at Luang Prabang amd we waited for an hour or more to change buses. Then the driver stopped again half an hour later for 15-20 minutes and the whole ride he kept playing music loudly.
