Newly built in the traditional style of the Mekong delta river boats, the Dragon Eyes I and II offer luxury and more privacy with only two cabins each. Relax and enjoy the impressions on fantastic 2 and 3 day trips...

Great experience. Tour manager Haiden and crew very good, helpful and attentive. We had a rear cabin with air con ( which is a necessity ) and a small balcony. Food and beverages excellent. Tours of local villages and sampan ride lovely. A bike ride as an extra was fun. Room could do with a mini fridge. Bathroom facilities very... More

We have never booked any kind of tour before but this was fabulous. They picked us- family of 4 - up at our hotel in Saigon and drove us in an air on minibus with a fab guide to the boat. The service and food on board were excellent and the rooms were lovely. A proper shower and toilet!! The... More

The Mekong Eyes Cruise was a great way to "take the long way home" from HCMC to Phnom Penh for me. I went solo in April, and though the trip was great and everything was well-organized, it suffered a bit for me because it followed the spectacular Halong Bay cruise I had taken earlier in my tour of Vietnam.

We travelled from Phnom Penh to Saigon. We were supposed to be picked up from our hotel and after waiting half an hour and attempts to phone the organiser we had to make our own way to the speed boat and didn't even really know where to go. They had gone to the wrong hotel and not bothered to phone... More

Dear annette93, Thank you for your review. Sometimes when things go wrong they really go wrong! You were really unlucky with the hiccups that happened on your journey with us. I sincerely apologize for this streak of problems! Unfortunately the main engine had a breakdown and therefore the towing was required. I am very sorry that this inconvenience happened, there...

We were upgraded from Dragon Eyes to Gecko Eyes 1 and 2, with our meals served on Gecko Eyes 1. Having these private boats was so relaxing having only our family catered to. The guides were excellent, knowledgable and very discreet. Being on the smaller boats allowed us to escape the busier main channels of the Mekong. The Mekong is... More

We had the most amazing time on Gecko Eyes. We were collected from our hotel 8am sharp and after a 3 hour car trip we were welcomed aboard by Hai and what an amazing young man he is. With Hai as our tour guide, waiter, barman we were in need of nothing. After a few hours cruising we had our... More

Dear ozzy_traveller, Great to have you back on board! I hope your husband recovered again and you could enjoy the rest of your trip. The small Gecko Eyes boat is able to access the smaller canals and river arms in the Delta and opens up new places where cruises with bigger boats cannot go. We are very happy that you... More

The Mekong is stunning. As the sun sets, the massive, slow-moving river is like a living thing. Timeless and exotic. The Mekong Eyes was a lovely boat, with friendly and professional staff and guides and lovely day trips. But don't expect the Mekong to be that remote thing of legend, lined by stilt houses and villages. There structures are concrete,... More

Dear Zara M, That is indeed a very good description of the Mekong as a “living thing” – it really feels like that! You are right that parts of the Mekong are becoming quite developed and along the big river arms the romantic (but poor) rural life is changing quickly. You can still find the old Mekong Delta life in... More

Had a great day, Our guide Mary was delightful, knowledgeable and willing to engage at all times. We visited and saw lovely sights along with trying essence of cobra and scorpion. The boat rides were fun and the seemingly endless food beautiful.
