I researched well before booking and chose JSSS because it sounded fun and he promised he would take us to non touristy places. He delivered on both counts. As soon as he arrived in our hotel to fetch us we knew it would be a good trip. His laughter was infectious and he was very entertaining. As the tour started... More

My tour said it would be a trip to the mekong delta but it was just island hoping on the mekong river which is now a massive tourist trap. If you want to see the delta book a real 3/5 day tour

More importantly he didn't talk to you non stop as some guides seem obliged to do, and neither did he take us to any craft shop, or other place where you feel you are expected to buy something. The day was fascinating with a boat trip,... More

Really if you re at HCM , you need go to the mekong river, float markets. You can choice from half day visit or more than one day , with other places. If you re without time, one day is ok.

In one of the tour in ho Chi minh we learn about the history and culture there via mekong river. Is out of the city area into the suburbans. A great overall learning experience about culture and heritage.

I have iust completed an overnight cruise on the Mekong River and I must say i was very happy with the cruise company - Mekong Eyes - but i was shocked by the rampant development along the banks of the river itself. All that cement and concrete robbed my trip of any pleasure, let alone awe, i had hoped to... More

A holiday of a lifetime - up their with going on a safari in Kenya. We did this tour with a group of friends and had so much fun, due in large because of the wonderful staff on board the RV Mekong Pandaw. The Ship Purser was a delightful young man full of enthusiasm for his country and it's people,... More
