Well explained about the trip at siem reap end. But we when got to the town before the border we were told to get out that he going back to siem reap. We were not advised and was unclear what was happening we waited two hours there before we drove to the border. The drivers were all good felt safe

Seats were not comfertable in the van. We waited at lunch for over 2 hours for another van to pick us up and therefore arrived in Pakse 2.5hrs late

Took much longer than originally advertised/ told. Supposed to arrive 5:30.. then told 6-6:30pm.. but arrived at the pakse office just before 730pm.
Overall the trip was fine. Changed vans twice; once at lunch and once at the border crossing.
Crossing was easy, we were told in advance that the passport control would charge a stamp fee to exit and enter.
It was very quiet.
Overall well organised. Would recommend them.

First van from Siem Reap to Pakxe was perfect with a really nice explanation of the whole trip. From Stung Treng to Pakxe we had to change bus. 30 minutes late there arrived a bus - loaded inside with tons of mangos so that the door could not open. There was very very little space left for 4 people and luggage. After a long discussion we decided to take the minivan- had no other option. Around us everywhere mangos- in the neck, at our foot. We had to sit in this very narrow space for more than five hours. After the border there were two police controls where the driver gave money to them and then we were good to go- so he was definitely smuggling something. We felt very unsafe and this is unfair treatment - starting with a good van and change to an overloaded transporter.

Traveled Siem Reap to Pakse using this service. Online booking and communication brilliant. AVT is very prompt, collected from hotel and the group left from the office. The van condition is ok. Driver to Stung Treng was great, we were flying and made the part of the trip just under 5 hrs. Roads are poor, I am mentioning in case anyone has not considered this part. The trip is crap only because of the road and not the length of the trip.
Van swap at Stung Treng. Another great driver in an ok van on awful road to border. Crossing, as suspected, dodgy as, no we were not just charged USD2.00 on the 2 sides. The "guide" in the bus took USD10.00 to "organize everything " So my visa was NOT $30.00 but really $40.00 A young Dutch traveler for no real logical reason was later asked for ANOTHER $5.00 with some shitty excuse of a stamp or something. Look, we all know these "systems " I feel sorry for such weak people scamming at border crossing of thesr not so by the book countries. The actual crossing took about 40 minutes, who knows what games went on in those offices. I was just glad to have my passport back in my hands after all that time. No regrets but I sure won't be doing it again. Just to clarify, AVT is a pro service under limited flexibility and no transparency, I am wondering the guy running it knows what really happens at the border with the drivers. Cheers.
