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

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

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.

Thank you very much for your kind works Katrine! it is always great to get such feed-back and we will share it with the crew which was on board on your trip. I am sorry to hear that it took you 4h to Cai Be – normally it should take less than 2h but sometimes when traffic around Saigon is... More

We had a wonderful time cruising the Mekong from HCMC to Phnom Pehn on the semi-private Dragon Eyes cruise. We first transferred from HCMC to Can Tho via mini-bus. This was a long 4 hour trip though I enjoyed the scenery (and a quick snooze). Upon boarding, it was quickly evident this was going to be a memorable trip --... More

Dear sassenach-girl, Thank you very much for your review and the kind words. We are trying to design the excursions in a way to show our guests the "real Mekong Delta" and life of ordinary people there as it is so different to what most of us know. So for us this is a fantastic compliment if you say it... More

We had a wonderful 1 night cruise from Ho Chi Minh to Cai Be. The staff were so friendly and the cabins were really comfortable. The food was amazing and the ever constantly changing scenery was just beautiful. Definitely worth doing!

I'm writing in retrospect as a picture just took me back to this wonderful experience. In November 2013 I took a 4-day Mekong Eyes River cruise from Ho Chi Ming towards Cambodia. What an experience- the boat was pristine, the crew were super friendly and being a vegetarian they made lots of delicious dishes with tofu. The cruise really was... More

All the travel time getting to and from the Mekong Eyes boat itself is at least half the trip. To best enjoy your time think of this as an experience that includes various forms of transportation and enjoy the views along the way. If you are just waiting to get the onboard experience of the Mekong Eyes you'll have missed... More
