Wow, they exceeded all expectations. Excellent food and service by all locals from Cambodia and Vietnam. Highly trained and focused on customer care. The excursions had knowledgeable guides, 100% attentive. Sight seeing made the trip truly memorable, we will sail with AMA again

We are normally budget travelers, but decided to see the Mekong in style and booked a week on Pandaw's Mekong River Cruise from Siem Reap to Saigon. It was absolutely terrific. The RV Mekong Pandaw was an immaculate boat, the crew of 27 showed obvious pride in their work, and the itinerary and daily agendas were both varied and interesting.... More

Avoid Delta Adventure for boat tours on the Mekong. They take you a lot of of money then there is no boat, you travel by bus !

When visiting Can Tho for the two most popular floating markets in the delta, you should not try and do so via a day trip. The best time to visit these markets is early in the morning (you should be on the water by 5:30am), so trying do do it as a day trip from HCM city won't work. Can... More

First off realize that this thread of reviews is confusing. Some people refer to short excursions offered by other companies, but the top heading was the AmaWaterway river boat trip on the AmaLotus boat. This is the trip we took, Sept 2014. We also did the land package of about a week in Cambodia first (dont miss it) . So... More

Booked a 'boat trip' from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh to find out it started with a 5 hour coach journey which pretty much covers a large part of the journey. On arrival we couldn't sail because of high winds / someone got left behind!! Next day also no sailing due to high winds but somehow the trips still took... More

This was the best tour ever! Its as close to Marco Polo as you can get in the 21st century. If you are looking to hang out with 20 other tourists in five star cushioned luxury then maybe this isn't for you. Jason got my tour put together in less than 24 hours and even found me a lovely hotel... More

My husband and I have just finished a 7-night cruise on the Pandaw RV Mekong. We booked through our agent and did not realise the boat did not go all the way to Siem-Reap. This is a trick that cheep airlines use & not worthy of Pandow. We had done the 10 day Irrawaddy, Rangoon (Prom) to Mandalay trip &... More

EIP baby! (Everything is possible) was Jason's motto. He gave our honeymoon a fab and memorable start by tailoring our tour to suit us. We had an immense couple of days and not only Jason looked after us but even his family. If you are looking for an amazing and fun experience then book. Plus even when we had parted... More

A wonderful 8 day cruise. Our Cambodian guide Sameth was generous, well informed and considerate. A delightful guide to accompany us on this cruise. We were two Aussies on board with a charter of 25 Swiss. Although the charter group and us were apart for most excursions, we all had a great time dining together or chatting over drinks. The...
