This was a simply fabulous trip. Booked through Viet Prestige travel in Hanoi (wonderful, superior service), we planned our holiday to Cambodia and Vietnam with a cruise on the RV Jahan in the middle. For seven days, we sailed up the Mekong, visiting small villages, learning about local culture and seeing river life during the low season. A five hour... More

We stayed in a suite travelling from Siem Reap to Saigon. The free minibar had a great selection and we were travelling for three months so made full use of the free laundry service. As part of the package we also got a private dinner and two free spa treatments. We went through Travel IndoChina, they had already pre paid... More

We boarded the Jayavarman in Phnom Penh and had one of the two signature cabins. These were supposed to be the top grade cabins with the best facilities.The "large" balcony with space to eat breakfast on was no wider than 3 feet, therefore two people could hardly pass each other let alone enjoy a breakfast and where the jacuzzi was...

We have just returned from a great 13 day experience of Cambodia and Vietnam along the Mekong River courtesy of Cruiseco on their boat Adventurer. The organisation was at all times first rate , from the moment of reservation to our last flight sector. The hotels used at each end of the cruise were 5 star, and, with one exception,... More

A wonderful and relaxing trip on this very elegant ship from Siem Reph to Ho Chi Min City. Very specious cabins with small stowage possibilities. I recommend to book a room in the second floor. Wonderful and well organized tours free of charge. Breakfast and lunch buffet is very good and extensive, what we didn't like was the dinner. Better... More

We joined the expressboat in Chau Doc. We had to wait in the morning about one hour before departure and then went to the passport authorities where the agent checked us out of Vietnam. It took us a couple of hours up the Mekong before we made a "long" stop at the Cambodian passort control. On board was a group... More

The staff are a credit to the company. The food is superb. The boat has plenty of room and is well laid out. The organisation is very good and the excursions are ok. We were given a room - 102 - next to a generator and sleep was impossible. I did complain and they were sympathetic and was given a... More

We spent a week on Heritage Line's Jayavarman sailing from Siem Reap to Saigon (January 2015). The trip was fantastic - boat, crew, cabins, food, even other passengers -- but particularly the excursions. Everything was beautifully designed and executed, and we would not have missed one of the excellent visits to hamlets, villages, craft centers, and temples along the way.... More

Crew and staff was amazing. The boat is large and beautiful. The food is excellent. Western and local breakfast and lunch options. Dinners tend more to local dishes. Try everything they offer. Excursions and lectures are focused on the culture, history and true heritage of the people living on the Mekong River. This cruise doesn't include the big historic sites,... More

Our family of four (2 adults and 2 children aged 11 & 16) had the most amazing week on the Jahan, cruising up the Mekong river - Saigon to Siem Reap, "The Lost Civilization Cruise" in December 2014. We had two beautiful adjoining "superior staterooms" that were spacious, very well appointed with great bathrooms, comfortable beds and private balcony's. Both... More
