Luang Prabang to Vang Vieng destination reviews

HM
van Regional 14pax, Naluang, Mar 7, 2020
It took over 2 hours longer than stated on the ticket, which wasn't helped by the flat tyres and the half an hour meal break the driver had in a shop that refused to serve any of the passengers.

van Regional 14pax, Naluang, Feb 6, 2020
Service was ridicously bad. Too much people for one van. Wanted to put 2 little children on one seat. No communication during stops and driver that wants earn quick money by letting extra people in the bus,

Bus was on time and got us where we needed to be but it was a pretty awful journey. The bumps were so bad we were jumping out of our seats, but I guess that’s not the bus company’s fault. Would still do it again for the price

Driver did not drop us at Soutchai Travel as planned????
JF
van Regional 14pax, Naluang, Jan 25, 2020
Although the drive during the daylight hours was no where near as bad as some of the reviews we read, we found that the bus was not fit for driving at night!!! The headlights hardly worked and so the driver was going so slowly that the last 26km took nearly 2 hours!! He was blinded by trucks coming towards us and his only safe reaction was to stop until it passed. The minivan should not be on the roads.

van Regional 14pax, Naluang, Jan 12, 2020
The communication about the pick up was very bad. So we missed the bus we booked. We did go one later. The driver was al lot of time busy with bis telefone. That was very scarry because of the very bad and dangereus road. The minivan was old and the suspension also. It was the worst trip we ever made.
