We’d read a lot about the Gibbon Experience so came prepared with the right kit - 80% DEET mosi repellent, light hiking gloves for zip lining, good shoes, a couple of packs of new playing cards & a few tasty snacks to share after dinner....More

I did the Express trip and had an amazing time. Our guides were lovely, the treehouse was brilliant and the ziplining was loads of fun. I took one star off because of the price - it's ridiculously expensive for SE Asia and I don't think...More

This is a must do in Lao and definitely my best experience in the whole country. The guides (Shout out to Khong and X-men) took really good care of us and the hikes, zip lining and especially the highest treehouse in the world were amazing!

I wouldn't fancy it but then I am almost 60, used walking poles and hate going downhill. Loved the trip, want to go back but only if it's dry.
