After a short boat ride to a Mekong island we took a small, 4 person, paddle boat tour along a very picturesque canal for about 30 minutes. Worm but enjoyable. Overall tour about 2 hours.

We were spending two days in Saigon, and spent a day on the Mekong River. It was lots of fun. The cruise first drove past floating market, small village and local barges. We stopped at a local town market where they were making coconut candy. Got on bikes near a tea house where we rode past houses in the jungles... More

We stayed in Saigon for two days and then went on a river cruise upstream on the Mekong River and finally stayed in Siem Reap for the last two night. The whole experience was great value for money. Everything on this trip was of a high standard. The Cruiseco Adventurer was a well maintained ship with good size cabins and... More

This tour was fabulous, our tour guide was great, very knowledgeable and friendly. We took our 9 year old son and he also had a great time. I recommend this tour. We had boat rides, horse and carriage, Buddha statuss and a very dodgy snake and gecko drink. Crocodiles and snakes to see also. Busy day but broken up a... More

We booked our Mekong River Cruise via Expedia from California vs. booking the tour while in Ho Chi Minh. I believe we got a better deal this way. This was a full day tour, and it met all our expectations. Starts out with a two hour ride out of Ho Chi Minh, with a hotel pick-up. The trip includes several... More
