A unique and fantastic experience if you want to know more about Mekong delta culture and environment. The staff on board is simply lovely, food is amazing and all services and excursions included are really well structured to make you experience the best of Mekong region. Plus the company arrange everything for any additional request like speedboat to Cambodia, border trespassing and other transfers. To be selected if looking for cruises on Mekong delta, definitely the best option.

We had a wonderful private trip with Melong Eyes Cruises. We were late to meet our boat due to traffic so they arranged to pick us up at a different spot. We had to make a few adjustments to the first day itinerary but that was fine. The Gecko Eyes has one cabin for guests, an upper deck to sit on, a front cabin with sliding doors and windows to sit in and where we had our meals. This opened up to the front deck of the boat. It was very nice. Our cabin had AC, private bath with shower, king size bed. It was very comfortable. The room was nicely outfitted. The food on the trip was amazing and varied. The chef (Trung) did an excellent job. There was always so much to eat and we hated to leave anything behind. One afternoon we also had a cooking lesson which was great. Our guide and primary contact on the boat was Châu. He was very informative and his english was excellent. The captain, Khánh was great and did a wonderful job. Bêń, the mechanic, kept everything running smoothly. We stopped in a number of the villages along the trip to see markets, ride bikes, walk along the river, see various activities done by the locals. It was all very interesting. I am sure the exact itinerary can be adjusted to different interests. It was fun to see the river come to life in the morning and then go to sleep in the evenings. The boat is very comfortable and the team excellent. If you a looking for a high end luxury cruise this is probably not the boat for you. We enjoyed the trip and would definitely go with them again.

We were on board for three days and enjoyed the relaxed vibe even though we did land trips every day. Food is good and the staff are super friendly and go the extra mile to help; they really know their subject too. Always felt safe and the cabin was no smaller than you'd expect on board with good bathroom. Certainly recommend as part of a Vietnam holiday.

The only reasons I haven’t given it 4 stars instead 5 stars is nothing to do with the service , food or trips as this was all excellent. The reason is as it’s not very well explained in the itinerary that if you take 2 nights on the boat you end up at the place you started not further up or down the river to your destination. We were traveling from Ho Chi Minh to Phnom Penh we should have stayed 1 night on the boat as our car journey to Chau Doc would have been 3 hours we decided 2 nights which was fab but please note you go back on yourself and it was a 5-6 hour journey to Chau Doc . The boat is very relaxing and even though you go back down the same river it’s at a different time of the day so you see different things . Note if you come from Chau Doc same principle Definitely recommend and i really enjoyed the 2 nights 😍
