We did a 2 night cruise on the Mekong Delta, we had the 10 cabin junk. It was a fantastic experience, we were the only people on the boat and the crew treated us like royalty, everything was laid on for us, the food was great, we had some of the best Vietnamese food we have ever had in Vietnam, excursions included bike rides around local villages, visiting families in those local villages, visits to markets, floating ones as well as village ones. Our guides, yes we had more than one were great, thanks Taun and Laun for your great knowledge of everything. It. Is something that should be on your to do list when coming to Vietnam.

We decided for the two days cruise from Can Tho to Cai Be on Le Cochinchine, an amazing way to visit the Mekon Delta. The wooden boat was lovely, small cabines but perfect for one night. The guides were good, and the food was delicious.

Unforgettable trip!!

We had an overnight cruise from Can Tho to Cai Be on Le Cochinchine, a lovely old wooden boat. The food was delicious (some of the best we had in Vietnam, including delicious whole snapper) and the service was fantastic. The activities were well thought out and interesting. Would recommend taking only an overnight bag for this trip as the cabins are small. Great foot massage with gin and tonics as the sun set over the river! Thank you for a wonderful cruise.

We spent 3 nights aboard Le Cochinchine "Mien Tay" our own private sampan as part of the 7 day/6 night cruise from Saigon to Angkor. Right from the pick up by private car in HCMC to our final day in Siem Reap we were treated like royalty by very attentive and informative guides. Every aspect of our tour was perfect. The sampan was fantastic thanks to our brilliant crew - the captain, mechanic, housekeeper, cook and our brilliant guide Kiet. The food was some of the best we had in our 8 weeks in Cambodia and Vietnam. We can't say enough about our guide Kiet. He was always keeping us occupied with cycling through villages, visiting local sights and interesting conversation. We also had other wonderful guides in Bunna and Rotanna who looked after us enroute to Siem Reap and whilst we were there. We strongly recommend LeCochinchine Cruises for an unforgettable experience.

We had a very enjoyable overnight cruise on the Mekong Delta mostly thanks to our guide Luan who was superb. The boat was a lovely design all wooded affair and there were only 7 of us on board. The visit to the floating market before hand was simply brilliant for photos and getting close to the local people. The cruise however was a bit odd as it missed some quality touches that should have been there - basic maintenance issues with our room - broken toilet seat, blown bulbs etc were disappointing to see. Also for some odd reason we noisly set off at 5am the next morning and arrived almost 2 hours early so just sat there - in doing so we had disturbed sleep and missed out on a lot of the cruise - silly really. That said our guide Luan was awesome and we had a great tine with his knowledgable and passionate guidance!
