We did the waterfall experience and had the MOST amazing time! Our group was lovely, our guide spoke great English and was really fun, the food was good, the treehouses had unbeatable views and were only accessible by zip wire, the waterfall was beautiful and refreshing, the treks were fun and just difficult enough to be interesting without being too hard, and zip wiring across the valleys has to be the highlight! Well worth every penny, even if it is an expensive attraction.

We had the best time at the Gibbon Experience! The staff were great, everything was organised so well, the zip lines were sooo much fun, the tree house was epic, the views incredible, the shower so cool, the food so tasty..... it was all just so so awesome, can't stop raving about it!

We'd read on TripAdvisor that the food can have smaller portions, and we did feel that a bit on the second day (first day we couldn't even finish everything), but as we'd brought some crackers and nuts , this wasn't at all a problem. In any case, food tasted lush!

The bedding was great, good mosquito nets, there's drinking water, soap, towels.... the tree houses have it all! Definitely recommend it!

This was an absolutely incredible experience that is hard to describe in words. I was nervous booking this experience because we heard about the tragedy that recently occurred and some of the other reviews that say it is dangerous. However, we felt they did a very good job in ensuring our safety and we felt very comfortable the whole time. We were also concerned about the price but it was worth every penny and I would probably pay more. Our tour guides were wonderful and helpful and really made our experience incredible. If you have time I would highly recommend making the trip to do this !!

Without doubt one of the most awesome experiences you can participate in, I was lucky enough to find myself with 6 other people from around the globe and we went on to depart the tour with huge smiles and great memories that we all agreed were highlights of our travelling lives thus far, the weather was perfect and being lucky enough to spot the family of Gibbons in tranquil surroundings from both of the tree houses we stayed in will be a lasting memory, highly recommended and I hope you also get the same luck!!

We loved it! Staying in the treehouse scrutinizing the jungle to catch a glimpse of a gibbons family, waking up to the sounds of gibbons singing, eating delicious lao food, ziplining through the forest, exchanging with the guides and much more was worth every penny.
We stayed in treehouse #7 and were 4 persons. We were lucky the weather was good (it plays huge factor on how good your experience will be)
