Exceptional service provided from Bangkok to Vientiane just in time before the border closed. Highly recommended for this full-service transportation experience.

The ride from Bangkok to Vientiane was ok. Nothing to complaint about. When we stopped at the border, the crew could have told us to get off the bus at least. All the natives got off the bus, the tourists weren‘t sure what was going on. Otherwise everything was good, would book it again!

Overall the trip was fine but as a heads up to other travellers; you pay the company and they shuttle you to the bus station, sort out your ticket for you and then leave you to get on a proper bus to Nong Khai, where you are met by a relative of one of the company who then shuttles you to the border with some info regarding how to cross. This was not bad or difficult it was just unknown to me :)
