I was suppose to travel by bus and they told me in advance I would be traveling by van. It is ok if you book a decent number of people with their luggage. They expected us to be 13 in a van crowed with luggage. Back to the bus station, I asked to change van. I finally travelled in better conditions. I was aware of it by previous complaints from travelers. Please check on the reviews if you think they mean something to you. We, as travelers take time to write them.

Bus arrived a little late but the entire bus trip was ok.

We were packed into a tiny mini bus that could barley fit us all so I had to sit in the middle front seat which was concrete hard unlike the seat everyone else was sitting on the difference was night and day, made for a very uncomfortable journey, although the driver got us there an hr early so that was positive and he was nice

Picked us up which is always good. The luggage hold door came open while we were driving which wasn’t very reassuring but we don’t think anyone lost luggage

Air conditioning broke, way too hot on the bus to be comfortable. Bus left more than 1 hour late and stopped many times to check the engine. Not a great experience

Comfortable ride, made one stop half way through for bathrooms. The type of bus depends on the number of people riding, so beware! Could be anything from a coach (what we had— was very pleasant!) to a minivan (which is fine, just a little less legroom)

So many people in a small van, the baggage storaged on a roof rack and the driver stopped along the way several times to pick up more package. We already knew the bad road bad conditions, so no complaints about it,but in our opinion the driver could have been more careful due to this and the weather (so much fog)

We travelled with overnight bus from Vientiane to Luang Prabang. On the plus side - we arrived early (just in time for the sunrise alms-giving ceremony) and managed to get some sleep on the way. There was AC and we got blankets. On the minus side - we had to arrive at 18:00 in the Soutchai office, while the bus leaves at 20:30 from the Northern bus station. We first waited for the transfer from the office to the bus terminal. Our vouchers were changed into tickets there and we had to wait nearly 2 hours at the dirty station. The bus was there, but they would not let us in before the 20:15. The price of the ticket at the station was 150.000 kip, we paid twice the price (over 30$) per person through 12GoAsia. The reclining seats allows you to sleep if you are less than 170 cm. There is no toilet and no toilet stops on the way. Instead of 8:00am stated on the tickets we arrived at 5:20am. Also we arrived to Southern station in Luang Prabang, while our tickets stated that we will arrive at the Northern one. Still this trip was more restful than the other way round.

Safe and comfortable trip. Bus started to leak air half way through the trip though but luckily the driver could fix it with a piece of plastic bag.

Good ride, decent bus and driver. Made it in a little less than 4 hours.

Everything was handled well and organized. There was a car accident that made the travel time 2 hrs longer. But it was comfortable. The AC didn’t work that well so it was really hot. Beautiful drive.

Driver did not seem that confident on the roads and at times felt dangerous. On the plus side, the bus left 15 mins early and did not take 6 hours, more like 4.5 - with a 30 min food stop and a shorter 10 min toilet break.

We weren’t happy that once we boarded the mini bus in Vang Vieng, we had to drive around for ages back and forth to the same places to pick up other travellers who were not ready on time. There was not enough space in the mini van for every plus our bags, it was so cramped for a 4 hour plus journey.

Reckless driver appeared tired unwell....noticed similar hazardous drivers in larger buses. Overtaking in face of oncoming traffic and on blind corners...felt very unsafe.

Good trip. Roads a little rough as expected. Driver safe and steady.
van Regional 14pax, Soutchai Travel, Jan 9, 2019
The mini-van was in pretty good condition and the driver drove reasonably safely. The roads aren’t in great condition but the beautiful scenery en route compensates. Overall, I’d recommend this service, especially at busy times of the year where it’s worth paying the 12go. premium to secure a seat in advance.

Good bus and good ride. Howewer this company should not be allowed to state a 3h duration online (totally unrealistic for this journey) as it takes 4.5h (which is absolutely fine), especially as they advertise it differently in their shop... 12.go should also monitor unrealistic timings advertised on its portal...
