 We arrived in My Tho around mid- afternoon and it was warm. Our tour guide made all the arrangements with the boat man/sampan. Our river cruise went smoothly. I could imagine the books I've read describing the sufferings of the people during Vietnam war. In a way, we had a good time. It was like cruising in the Amazon forest.... More

Just got back from an amazing package trip with Cruiseco. I'm not a fan of cruises but this was fantastic. Check the website for package details.it may seem expensive but it's not when you consider everything including tours and a 2 day stay at Sein Reap Raffles is included. Small intimate tours to local villages and attractions along the river... More

My husband and I did the 2 day Mekong Delta farm stay with Intrepid Urban Adventures and ended up on a private tour as a bonus as we were the only ones booked. Hoa, our guide was fabulous and very informative. The farm stay accomodation was also great on the river and we had a room with a double bed... More

We did a private tour that took in the various local crafts, time on a gondola type row boat, and a mini opera type performance by a local family. It was a long day but it was very interesting and worthwhile. The Mekong Delta was not on our itinerary initially, but we added it and it was well worth seeing.

Our second Pandaw experience more than lived up to our high expectations! Beautiful, high spec, teak-clad boat with a dedicated, attentive and most professional service team. Fabulous choice of food (and drink), interesting daily excursions, super spa and work-out area. Nothing was ever too much trouble 😊 Planning our next Pandaw trips already!

We had a wonderful time and actually saw villages without being hounded by small sales persons wanting us to buy postcards..of course at time this was unavoidable. The cabins were very comfortable, and i think everyone had a balcony with chairs and a table. Needless to say the bathroom was well appointed. There were excellent after dinner movies and speakers...

Cruise from Ho Chi Minh City to Siem Reap. Excellent service from beginning to end, including a 3 day add on in Siem Reap. The good was bountiful and very tasty. Very nice to have wine, as it is very expensive in SEAsia. The guides were all local and very knowledgeable. We met lots of interesting people on board and... More
