Mekong eyes picked us up at our accommodation in Ho Chi Minh City and drove us to the delta. We were well taken care of from the pick up, to the drop off when a driver met us at Phu Quoc and drove us to our resort. The Mekong delta was beautiful, the boat and the cabins really clean and cozy, and the staff friendly and service minded. We had relaxing two days and enjoyed it very much. The only thing I could wish more for was to spend a little more time at the floating market and buy things there. But everything was well planned and well executed. Strongly recommended!

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 attached to the rooms. The boat is very clean and the aircon is a treat after a hot day. -activities are all such a great addition. We did guided walks, bike ride, cooking class, visited floating markets and loved every minute - food is really tasty! I enjoyed every meal I had. - drinks are very reasonably priced. House wine is $3.5 US, spirits around $5-6 - crew are really friendly and helpful - a nice amount of spare time to enjoy the cruise at your leisure. Cons: Honestly I can't think of any. I didn't have a single issue the whole three days. Thank you for such an amazing trip Mekong eyes! Such a nice way to travel down to phu quoc and experience life on the delta!
