Description: Experience the lush and mystical world of Vietnam's Mekong delta aboard...
Experience the lush and mystical world of Vietnam's Mekong delta aboard one of our luxurious river cruisers. Once a typical rice barge, the Mekong Eyes now offers beautifully decorated cabins and a stylish lounge area. 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...

Despite the long car journey from HCMC (+/- 4 hours including stop), we had a wonderful experience onboard the 'Mekong Eyes'. We only had the one overnight cruise, but thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. The scenary is just amazing and with so many boats around you and the the floating market, it provided us with some great photo opportunities.... More

We had the 2 night cruise. It was quite along journey from HCMC, but worth it. Once on the Mekong Eyes the scenary was outstanding. We visited floating markets and ventureed on shore for a land market that was quite an eye opener with the live fish jumping out of the buckets at each stall. The village tour was a... More

We did the two night cruise from HCMC to Phnom Penh, was disappointed that it was not explained that we would take a 4 hour bus ride down and then and also that there would be a 5 hour speedboat ride from Cho Doc to Phom Penh. It is a very expensive way to get from HCMC to Phnom Penh.... More

We had one overnight with them on the Mekong, doing the HCMC-Phnom Penh route and found them to be very professional, friendly and accommodating in all the planning. Although it´s not cheap, for us it was worth it and the accommodation they selected on land in Chau Doc for example, was excellent - as was the food they served on-board... More

We did the 2 night cruise on Mekong Eyes. The boat has 14 cabins and plenty of room for seating for everyone on the top deck. The staff are absolutely lovely - you feel they really care about their passengers and safety is key. The beds are comfortable, the curtains are quite thin so an eye mask is a good... More

Not being a cruise person, this is the second Asian barge cruise we have done, and Mekon Eyes certianly lived up to their advert. The Mekong Eyes is about 6 years old and in good condition. Cabins are well appointed but compact and the staff were extremely competent, friendly and informative on all excursions. The entire organisation appears very well... More

We thought this tour company was well organized and did a really good job coordinating all the details. One of the highlights of the cruise were the consistently wonderful meals we were served. It is a relaxing way to see the area and learn about a different way of life. As expected the rooms were small and the noise of... More

This was our second cruise tour of the trip (our first being in Halong Bay)...and comparatively my partner and I enjoyed the Halong Bay cruise much better. We were picked up promptly from our hotel and after about a 2.5 hour drive arrived at our ship. We were greeted with a welcome drink and shown to our cabins. The accommodations... More

I had been really looking forward to this part of our trip, and have to say that I was somewhat disappointed. We did a two half day and one night trip. On the positive side, Dragon Eyes 2 is a beautiful old wooden boat. The cabin was charming and very comfortable. The food served was really excellent, especially in view... More
