The most beautiful option to travel from Cambodia to Southern Vietnam — or vice versa — is to take the various waterways and therefore the traditional transport routes, where travelers can watch the hustle and bustle on the rivers and canals. The new Mekong Eyes Explorer is perfect for your individual river cruise (from 1 to 3 nights) on the northern route of the Mekong connecting Southern Vietnam with Phnom Penh. Our new boutique cruiser is designed to roam through the narrow and winding rivers and canals of the river system that cannot be accessed by the larger cruise boats. That way we can show you the hidden gems of the northern Mekong Delta. The cruise ship has 12 superior cabins that are all designed as outside cabins, slightly larger than the ones on the Mekong Eyes Classic. In addition to the deluxe cabins the cruiser has 4 suites, which are located on the upper deck and equipped with a private balcony. The interior design is using a lot of local materials and design patterns and is hand-crafted by local craft masters.

We were picked up at our hotel ready for a 4 hour drive to meet our crew and boat. On arrival our guide and waiter Dave met us and provided an orientation of the boat. Our cabin had a king size bed (2 king singles pushed together) allowing for twin bedding if required. A large bathroom with toilet and shower was attached to the room. The shower was dirty and mould visible on the shower curtain. Meals were amazing! 4 course lunches and dinners and all very fresh food from local markets. Breakfasts included choice of eggs and fruit. Beverages could be bought onboard but wine was very expensive ranging from 550000 dong up. Dave our guide, lead us everywhere and was very informative about his home land. He provided a wealth of knowledge and was very helpful throughout the tour. For the price range, the level of service was outstanding and can recommend to anyone who is visiting Saigon and the Mekong Delta.
Prefect...Awesome....Fantastic We spent 3 days 2 nights on Mekong Eyes 2 and it was the prefect way to Cruz the Mekong. 3 Adults & 1 4 year old and we all loved it. The food was amazing and the crew were awesome. Everything was done so well from the walk through the village, to the floating markets & the bike ride was great. We even visited a small family farm and had afternoon tea there. Relaxing on the boat watching the world pass by was a great way to chill out with a Cocktail in hand. Get up early and watch the sun rise, well worth it. Thanks Mekong Eyes for a fantastic time. Well worth doing. 10 out of 10.
Took a two night cruise from Can Tho (starts and ends there) on the rivers and canals of the Mekong Delta. It is a wonderful experience. My favorite part was just sitting and watching the boats on the river, life on the shore, and the storms come in. We had several shore excursions, but some were cut short or cancelled because of heavy rain storms. We had cooking lessons on board instead. The crew is excellent and attentive, but not intrusive. The food was Vietnamese, which I loved. But let the crew know ahead of time if you have dislikes or dietary restrictions. One person did not like coriander (cilantro), which is a common ingredient in Vietnam. They are extremely accommodating to dietary restrictions. There were people with celiac and vegetarians who got special dishes. Most of the common areas are not air conditioned so it can get hot and sticky. There are fans in the dining room. You cabin is very well air conditioned, so you can find relief there. The cabins are small, but very nice. Beds were very comfortable. I found the washroom to be very big and functional. I look forward to returning to Vietnam and taking a longer trip on one of their cruises.
We spent April travelling in Vietnam and this was our top experience. We really could not praise it enough. From the collection point in Can Tho to drop off in Chau Doc our trip was a superb experience. Organisation was impeccable, meals of gourmet quality, service just right, and the experiences - villages, orchards, the Mekong itself, tributaries and canals, sampan tours, seeing Viet Cong encampments, Would love to some kind of repeat !! Very, very well done Gecko Eyes and particularly well done to Ching our very capable, helpful, knowledgeable and friendly Guide
