Good way to pass an evening

My girlfriend and I enjoyed an evening dinner cruise and the food was very good and fresh cooked. Great views along the banks of the Mekong river. A good romantic evening.

Habing done river cruises in other places I now tend to do it just for the veiw of the city at night from the river. I was surprised with the quality and amount of food provided. The cost of drinks being very reasonable and the staff. They all seemed to enjoy their work not just do a job. Wonderful and... More

Foods was nice, too. We also enjoyed watching the beautiful city view around the river. If you are looking for a nice dinner with affordable... More

This was a lot better then I thought it would be. The service was friendly and the food was good. My only issue is that they food comes so fast that you don't have time to really enjoy the food and the cruise. It is great to cruise after dark and see the skyline of Ho Chi Minh. The music... More

It was a Dinner River Cruise... food was typical and actually better than what I thought it was going to be. Lots of local people, which shows that the food is actually authentic. The views of the city and the other lighted boats were great, entertainment was... well... entertaining. Overall good experience for HCMC and worth the money

Going up and down the river enjoying the night city scylines, under the sounds of live music and dancers. Excellant food and friendly staff. Magicians also entertain the clients. A fine walk on the deck is a perfect closure for a relaxing evening. The price is great for what it offers.

This was my third trip on this cruise. Every time I visit Bangkok, this is a must trip. Its good ride to float on the river and see all the city's buildings at night. The food is okay and always cold due to the wind. Those who want to take a break from city's noise can enjoy the view from... More

We took the Saigon Dinner Cruise. Something different for my family but nothing to shout. The onboard show and food were just ok.
