I was worried after a fantastic Halong Bay cruise this would be disappointing but I was wrong. I joined mid way for 1 night and the drive to the pier was interesting. Transferred by small boat I was warmly welcomed aboard. My cabin was small but clean and the bathroom was lovely. The air con took a bit of adjusting... More

Having booked the two day Cruise for a considerable amount we were very disappointed. The food was really not good, especially on the first day the Lunch was either cold, overcooked or tasteless. Two relaxeing days on the river and learning something about Vietnam we though to be a good idea. But the program included hardley any interesting things. Only... More

Our three-day-two-nights cruise in the Mekong Eyes boot was undoubtedly one of the most intriguing experiences we had during our stay in Vietnam, and this even started before the actual trip: i had sent a booking request through ME website and received a prompt reply from their German office in Freiburg- all contact with them has been very very professional...

Myself and a female friend spent the most wonderful time on Gecko eyes cruising up the Mekone River. We were spoiled with the most lovely guide who was there to do whatever we asked. The best chef in Vietnam that cooked the most delicious meals, and the wine list was also a highlight... We were picked up in Saigon on... More

We are a family of 4. We upgraded to the Dragon Eyes, which was quite expensive (AU$1300), but had the boat to ourselves. We enjoyed a delicious lunch as we set off from Can Tho. Later in the afternoon we stopped at a village for a look through a local market and a home. The dinner was again beautifully presented... More

We were upgraded to Dragon Eyes and with only 2 cabins we felt like Royalty. The boat is beautiful, the staff attentive. Our cabin was comfortable, lovely window view to the Mekong, good hot water, good wifi. Food was delicious. As it was early in the season there were not many tourists around and I loved our excursions, we were... More

We were a group of 2 couples who were looking for a private Mekong boat trip. We researched all the options and decided on the dragon eyes 2 days and 1 night tour. It was one of the more expensive trips so we had high expectations. It was amazing!!!! The boat is brilliant, the staff are very friendly and would... More

Marvelous experience. Food excellent, accommodation very comfortable, staff excellent, organised outings all very enjoyable and informative. Our boat was Mekong Eyes, in itself was like travelling in an antique. Air conditioned rooms and common areas. The only slight criticism is that our tour went to Cai Be then travelled back the same way I had expected a circuitous route but... More

This cruise was absolutely fantastic. The food onboard was of the highest quality and and the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We particularly enjoyed the small outings, going for a walk and discovering the various types of fruit which grow in the Mekong and then sampling them in someone's house. The highlight though was paddling along a small river... More
