    • Pick up from hotel . Witness the grandeur of Xieng Khuan- the Buddha Park. Although it is not a temple (Wat), it may be referred to as Wat Xieng Khuan since it contains numerous religious images. 

    • Discover the historical and cultural legacy of the region at Hor Pha Keo Museum,  the temple which was built on the grounds of the royal palace to house the Emerald Buddha figurine. 

    • Visit the historical Gate of Victory (Patuxai). The monument has five towers representing five Buddhist virtues and the five principles of coexistence among nations.

    Chansay did not actually show up for our tour.  We did not have much advance warning either.  But his replacement, Toy Syvongxay, was very good, so not sure how to rate this tour.

    My trip with Chansay went very well. Even though, my flight arrived an hour later than our specific time which caused a delay in our meeting, Chansay was patient and ready to meet us at the port of entry. With Chansay’s assistance, we quickly obtained our visa to enter Laos. Chansay patiently drove us around Vientiane with the limited time we had. While my wife and I have been to the city, my children and their friends who were with us have never been to the country and they had a wonderful time. Thanks to Chansay. He went beyond the scope of his duty as a driver to take pictures and assisted us with immigration documents. 

    Thank you Chansay! 

    You brought joy to my family’s visit of Vientiane.

    We are a family of four (two young kids) and booked Chansay for two days to tour Vientiane and Vang Vieng. He did a very good job and we had a blast. He was great with the kids and tailored the tour to our tastes. Only opportunity for improvement is with the language - his accent was sometimes hard to understand, but it didn't hinder our enjoyment.

    I met Chansay in 2013 during my travel in Laos. He is an excellent guide and was there taking care of all my needs during my tour with him as my guide. He speaks good English so communication was not a problem at all. I booked a kayaking tour with him in Vang Vieng and he does Vientiane and Luang Prabang city tour too.
