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

I had the incredible pleasure of 7 days on a Pandaw cruise from Cambodia to Viet Nam. After this time with the crew they were more like great new friends than service staff. I looked forward to their smiles and eagerness to serve every morning (thank you, Pandaw, for the early riser coffee and pastries, it was a wonderful way... More

My 13 year old grandson and I had a memorable trip to Vietnam in July this year but the highlight of our 10 days was the 3 days we spent with Jason SSS. We spent 2 days in the Mekong delta area and the third day Jason took us to the Chu Chi tunnels. Jason's motto "Everything Is Possible" sums... More

We visited the Mekong Delta through a private agent called Quoc Trung and were ripped off massively with the price as we were not sure what to expect. All I would say to people is if you go do not bother with the 'four island tour', other people must have had a very different tour to us. The first island... More

This really is the perfect way to experience the Mekong Delta in a truly relaxed environment, away from the chaotic traffic of Saigon simply watching the Vietnamese world go by :) We spent 2 days and one night ( nooked through Victoria Mekong cruises) with three teenagers on this perfect boat. Large enough for comforts such as chairs, comfy beds,... More

Not very fond of Cruises in general, I have been nicely surprised when discovering this very unique way of discovering the Mekong River & Delta. I had a chance to experience it from Phnom Penh to HCMC, and have to say that the standard, the service and also the interesting visits/stops on the way convinced me to suggest it to... More

Our group took over the entire boat for a week, and made heavy demands on the staff, which moved almost invisibly to set up chairs for our daily meetings on the sundeck or in the lower-deck meeting room.. They returned our rooms to pristine order while we were occupied, so that service was also practically unseen and too easy to... More
