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

We booked the Mekong Eyes, little Gecko Eyes boat and her five man crew for three days. We were picked up from our hotel in Ho Chi Minh City by Hep our driver. He took us the 3 hours to the river (his driving was excellent), past temples, pagodas, small dusty towns, slow rivers, bustling crowds and paddy fields. We... More

I am generally not a fan of long cruises, but decided to embark on this 10 day cruise from Mandalay to Yangon. But my experience on the Pandaw has changed this. We experienced 1st class service, well organised visits, excellent food, all supplemented by the services of a 1st rate local guide ( San Lwin) For these who like a... More
