Experience the lush and mystical world of Vietnam's Mekong delta aboard one of our luxurious river cruisers. Once a typical rice barge, the Mekong Eyes now offers beautifully decorated cabins and a stylish lounge area. Newly built in the traditional style of the Mekong delta river boats, the Dragon Eyes I and II offer luxury and more privacy with only two cabins each. Relax and enjoy the impressions on fantastic 2 and 3 day trips...

Mekong eyes offers serveral boats and agendas. This was a three day cruise on the new Mekong Eyes Explorer. First the boat is newer and wonderful. The food and staff and service are also all top notch. My only downside and I think it was the itinerary I picked was we did not really get out that much and see... More

We were picked up at our hotel in Saigon by a clean and comfortable van. We made two other stops and then headed to the river. Along the way we stopped at the Mekong rest area -- perfect timing. Got the boat in the timeframe indicated, and boarded for our two day, one night trip. The boat was clean, the... More

Fantastic! As a tour much better than Halong Bay as not as formulaic or contrived. Didn't feel like we were being herded like cattle. Staff were wonderful. Land trips very interesting, guides excellent. Cooking class was fantastic. Running out of superlatives here...... Only 3 of us cooking class and we had a ball with the gorgeous Hen. We loved every... More

We took the 3 day cruise, a combination of 1 night in the Mekong Eyes, one night in the Victoria hotel (Chao Duc) plus speed boat to Phnom Penh. Pickup at the hotel was right on time and we drove more than 3 hours to the boat; ride was pleasant with a short stop in a lovely place. Lunch was... More

We took the four-day cruise package, which included one night on Mekong Eyes I, a two-stateroom boat. We left the boat at Can Tho, and on days 2 and 3, we traveled across southern Vietnam, stopping overnight at Chau Doc and Ha Tien. On day 4, we took the ferry from Ha Tien to Phu Quoc Island. This was our... More

My boyfriend and I did the 3 day cruise from Saigon to phu quoc on the Mekong eyes and we were blown away! Pro's: -the boat is lovely! Sun beds on the top deck, covered outdoor seating area, nice indoor lounge area and the dining room are all well presented and comfortable. I was especially impressed with our private bathroom...

We had a fantastic Cruise on Mekong Eyes. Food was really good, staff very helpful and friendly and overall well worth the money. I will be recommending it to my friends. We had a lovely cycle ride through a village at end of Cruise and watched coconut candy and rice paper being made a very informative trip.

I think we would have enjoyed this more if we hadn't had such an amazing time on the Dragon Legend Halong Bay tour! We kept comparing the two, which is probably unfair, so please bear this in mind when reading the review, The wood panelled boat was quaint and the top deck was spacious for people to enjoy the views...

We did a 1n/2d cruise on Mekong Eyes converted rice barge. We had an 'odd' day so the cruise went Can Tho to Cai Be. Two 2 adults and one 7yo child share our ample sized and appointed cabin. The boat has beautiful polished woodwork throughout. We left Can Tho 2 people short of full capacity after a large group... More
