We only spent one night aboard which was not enough, would recommend two. Very chilled experience wathcing life go by on the land and river. Excellent food and service aboard, all the staff were excellent and very attentive. only downside was sound of generator going through the night. The excursions cycling around a little village and a small trip on a sampan were fun. Reccomended cruise.

We did a 2 day/ 1 night cruise - wished we had longer. Was absolutely beautiful boat and such a friendly crew. We were fortunate to only have 9 people on board so it was quiet and lots of attention. One of the highlights of our trip.

A super equipped boat, built in 2017! We felt very comfortable. Spacious cabins for a boat and a pleasant program: 1 shore leave, visit to a floating market, sampan trip and visit to a coconutcandy manufacturing plant.

We saw lots of activity on the water from the main boat including barges carrying soil and all sorts of bits and we sat outside on the deck watching this all go by. On the first day we stopped and went for a walk through the village and also stopped at a home to try fruit. This walk lasted longer than planned, meaning that we pretty much missed the sunset which we were meant to view from the top deck. The food was mostly good on board and plenty of it, although the staff weren't as friendly compared to our cruise along Halong Bay which was a shame. Day 2 some people went for a cycle, but we went for a walk through another village and went to a candy plantation and learnt how they make coconut candy which was pretty interesting. Overall, the Mekong Eyes cruise was good, but would've been better if we had gone the opposite way round and experienced a full floating market, as this is what the Mekong Delta is all about. We were also on their newest vessel Mekong Eyes Explorer and there were 16 of us altogether.

During our boat trip on the Mekong River to the floating gardens, we stopped at a manufaktur where we were shown the production of handmade coconut sweets and rice paper in every single step. Very, very interesting. It was hellish hot ... outside 35C and inside again 40C. In the manufactured rice paper, the homemade candy were wrapped by hand. An Asian woman creates 1000pcs. during the day. = Madness. After the visit was allowed to be bought. It is worth it ..
