One of the most magical experiences we've ever had. My boyfriend and I did the overnight from Saigon to Sa Dec and back on the Gecko Eyes. It was well worth the money. Gecko Eyes is the private boat with just one room, a captain, a chef and our host, Hai. We spent most of the day on the upper... More

We had a two night/three day stay on Dragon Eyes. The commute from Saigon is uneventful but a welcome break in between helps with the kids. Once reaching the boat the organization is flawless. Two cabins (one king, one twin) with aircon are great for sleep and having the upper deck and all for ourselves was great to contemplate time... More

Weather at our departure was wet and rain followed us for 2 days. It did not dampen our spirits and almost made the river cruise more romantic ....!

We chose a 1n2d package on the Gecko Eyes boat; a private boat for two people only. The booking process was simple and the team were helpful throughout in providing the details we needed. The boat had an old fashioned and atmospheric feel, with wood panelled rooms and a large sundeck (where we spent most of our time). We cruised... More

After some confusion over our transfer and final destination. We had a great time met a lovely couple from West Midlands and great chap from San Francisco. The food was well above expectations, staff really friendly but not overbearing. Nice wine good value just ask them to get it cold early. We didn't expect the morning activities, I would never...

We nearly didn't do this cruise because of the price, but we're glad we did. We did the 1 night trip from HCMC. We all loved it. The service was amazing. They have thought of everything. Very professional. Food was great. Beds and rooms very comfortable. Off boat trips were interesting and well thought out. The bike ride was nice... More

We chose the 2n3d package to get from Ho Chi Minh City to Phnom Penh and would do it again! The staff are very friendly, the boat is spacious, has two outside decks with tables and sun beds and a large restaurant inside. My girlfriend informed the guide that she doesn't eat seafood and they were very accommodating. Food is... More

Our involvement with Mekong Eyes began in England, when looking for a more interesting way to get from Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh than flying. Right from the start the person I dealt with (Thanh) could not have been more helpful. And we were kept in touch about minor changes so nothing was a surprise. The efficiency is laudable.... More

We did a 3 day 2 night Mekong cruise from Ho Chi Minh to Phnom Penh. We had a fabulous time with the Dragon Eyes boat all to ourselves. Our tour guide was very attentive and knowledgeable but also gave us plenty of space and private time. Meals were exceptional and service to match. Our cabin was spacious with lovely... More
