We booked one day for a local tour of the Mekong Delta. We are a family of 4 with two 20 something children with us. We were looking for a local experience and that is what we got. Yes, you can spend a lot less but we felt having only one full day that we didn't want to be on... More

We were picked up from out hotel by Asian Trails for an unforgettable experience on the Mekong river. We first visited where the floating market trade their produce from the boats moored in the river, after which we visited a family business that makes just about everything imaginable out of rice and coconuts, we visited an island on the river...

There was no holding back with beverages including wine with meals. The Travel Marvel guides were spot on and just a real pleasure. Stayed on the boat a... More

Hi, I enjoyed a vacation on your cruise last month and was very impressed with your staff. My 82 year old mother got sick. The purser Chi was very understanding and good to us. Every time we went ashore he provided a translator and or someone to accompany us. My mother got quite ill at the end of the trip... More

We have just completed a 7 night cruise on the RVMekong Pandaw from Saigon to Siem reap. What a wonderfully relaxing week it was. The boat has been refurbished recently and is a beautiful vessel with teak decks (which can be a little slippery after rain) and brass fittings all over. The cabin is on the small size but very...

It is difficult to find words to adequately describe the excellence of this trip. The hotels were good and two of them far exceeded expectations. The ship cabin was on the small side but worked well. The food on the ship was excellent with a great choice. The entertainment was limited by the size of the ship but films were... More

We had a terrific cruise on the Mekong river in the spring. There were just four of us on the cruise with our guide so it was a small boat but we felt safe as the water was calm. There were lots of activities on the river - you can see all kinds of commercial transport, everything from coconut to... More

Long travel distance with nothing much to see actually. Having said that still glad to contribute to their tourism development. It will be better in the future.

We booked our journey on the Le Cochinchine. This is a real wooden boot with small but comfortable cabins which have shower, toilette and a small sink. We stayed on the upper deck but with the calm water we hardly noticed any swaying. Whenever we came back from a small excursion the crew had a refreshing drink ready and an... More
