  • Magnificent Mekong River Cruise Reviews

    Would you like to review your recent Mekong River Cruises journey?

    The food was superb

    We enjoyed the Mekong trip very much, especially the cruising part. The whole staff on the RV Pandaw was fantastic and took very good care of us. The food was superb. The ship has a wonderful charm to it; the sun deck was our favorite place for photographing sunrises and chilling out. The size of the ship and the cruise in general were very manageable, especially for all our exotic excursions in rickshaws, cyclos, tuk-tuks and oxcarts around the villages and cities. We would love to go on the Thailand/Burma trip in 2014 but only if the size/type of ship remains as cozy and familiar as RV Pandaw.

    Absolutely fascinating

    Absolutely fascinating trip! I highly recommend it! This was our first river cruise and first trip with a tour group. Our guide was superb! We both had a great time…I’m 55 and my husband is 73 with emphysema, so he did not participate in all the sightseeing, but still enjoyed the trip. Air is not the best, so if really worried, bring a mask – many locals wear them. The Vietnamese and Cambodian people couldn’t have been friendlier or more gracious. Food was excellent and plentiful.

    Some tips: Our weather (end of November/early December) was warm and very humid. Plan for lots of sweating…we had laundry done twice because we packed light. You don’t need dressy clothes unless you want them. We did not need rain gear, and umbrellas are not needed as the hotels and ship have plenty to lend. There are children in all ports who will greet you and want something. Bring a couple bags of miniature candy bars to give them – they’ll be thrilled! Cambodia prefers US dollars; Vietnam prefers their own dong, but U.S. money is still accepted. ATMs are everywhere.

    A great ambassador

    Having just completed the Magnificent Mekong cruise tour I wanted to express my appreciation for our tour guide. His patience, humor, knowledge and dedication made this a trip of a lifetime. Having completed three Mekong trips, I feel he was by far the most accomplished guide we have experienced. He is a credit to your company and a great ambassador for his country.

    Like being in paradise

    I went on this trip reluctantly but my husband wanted to see Vietnam again, since he had been there during the war. It was a trip I will always remember with great fondness and awe. I am so glad I went and our tour guide was just wonderful. The stay at the hotel in Cambodia was like being in paradise. I loved this trip so much that after coming home, I gave a talk on it at our Ladies Group and also wrote a poem about it. I wouldn’t have missed this one for the world.

    Beyond our expectations

    As second-time Mekong River Cruisers (Russia was fabulous!) we knew we’d be well cared for, but the Mekong cruise was far beyond our expectations. The (chartered) RV Tonle was a really cool ship with a capable and helpful crew. After our tour leader showed us the history and bustle of Saigon, the cruise up the river was truly a trip into a different world. Our days in Cambodia were some of the most exotic travel experiences we’ve ever had. We plan to go back to Cambodia next year to spend more time in the Angkor Wat temples. Our Mekong cruise was the best introduction to this fascinating and wonderful part of the world. My wife and I have recently been studying the Mekong River Cruises brochures to spot our next trip to a wonderful new location. All of the Viking staff have made us want to be regulars.

    A magnificent tour

    Did the Magnificent Mekong 15-day cruise tour in June, from Hanoi – Halong Bay to Ho Chi Minh City. It was a magnificent tour, very busy, well-planned excursions, excellent tour guides and fellow passengers.

    Guides were beyond excellent

    This was our fourth Mekong cruise and it certainly lived up to our expectations. Since I have traveled to more than 125 countries, I have a feel for good guides and excellent guides – and the two we had were beyond excellent.

    It takes a lot to impress me…

    I’ve traveled to over 50 countries and have to admit, it takes a lot to impress me. My Mekong River Cruises trip to China was so incredible that I decided to do it a second time with my daughter and son-in-law. This year my husband and I took your Mekong river cruise. Angkor Wat has to be one of the most awe-inspiring experiences of my life. This may be another trip I will have to do again one day. Thank you, Viking, for putting together such a professional, reasonably priced, unique tour package. Each trip has been the experience of a lifetime.
