We especially enjoyed the 3 days we spent on the Mekong Jayavarman Cruise . The staff on board together with our guide were wonderful – very personable, hospitable, helpful, and a joy to be with. We can’t say enough about how much we appreciated everything they did to make our trip one that we will never forget.

We have just arrived back from the Mekong Jayavarman Cruise and I had to email. We had a fantastic time the crew were great, cabin was comfortable and the chef was amazing; we got to try such a variety of food. I will always recommend your company to anyone looking to go to the Mekong.

We just took this cruise in March and it was WONDERFUL! It was the last of the season, so there were only 23 of us on board, and almost as many crew. The cabin was very nice (teak), the bathroom spacious for a cabin, crew attentive and friendly, excursions interesting and well planned. Food was OK, not fabulous, but varied and plentiful.

We were travelling with another couple and has just completed a Jayavarman Cruise on the Mekong. Staying at this boat was very convenient to everything and laidback atmosphere. Our cabin was huge and the bed very comfortable. I would certainly recommend this boat
