What our clients are saying about their river cruises and tours through Asia
“Enjoyable Vietnam and Cambodia Tour”
Great handling by Jodie and very enjoyable trip. APT tour Director Dom stands out as outstanding and professional. All went well and me and my son made some wonderful memories for life!
“Value for money cruising on the Mekong”
Just returned from G-Adventures Mekong 8 day cruise and can thoroughly recommend. Trip is at a leisurely pace, boat accommodation is basic but comfortable and we were well looked after in the meals department. The crew and tour guide from G-Adventures were first class and we disembarked each day to a new local adventure. Only downside was the five hour bus ride on day 1 to the departure port - I understand that this is now the normal procedure regardless of river levels. G-Adventures delivered on ...read more their itinerary and the tour was great value for money when compared to alternative operators.
“Culturally inspiring tour made possible by proficient Global Journeys staff”
The tour itself lived up to the advertising. Culturally inspiring with fabulous Avalon support staff. Special thanks though to the adept travel agent Tracey of Global Journeys as I tasked her with the impossible: Book a cruise 1 week from departure. This was no problem for her, with all tasks managed proficiently and expertly given the challenging timeline. Thanks!
“Amazing river cruise of Vietnam and Cambodia”
This tour by Avalon was absolutely amazing. There were only twelve people in our group so a boat that has 18 cabins was only partially filled. How luxurious is that. Our Cruise Director, Quang, is a credit to Avalon’s staffing, his infectious personality was a hit with all on the trip. Our Vietnam guide, Chang, was also an extremely cheerful and knowledgeable man. Our guide for Cambodia, Chantha, was an amazing guy who regaled us with his history knowledge and had us in fits of laughter every ...read more day especially when on the bus microphone. We cannot speak highly enough of these 3 guys. All of the boat staff were extremely accommodating in every way, nothing was too much trouble, they were faultless. We were very impressed that there were daily excursions, on many days more than one. The variety on offer meant you were never left wondering what to do each day. Meals on board were outstanding with numerous course choices every mealtime, given there were only 12 of us. This was our second Avalon river cruise and would highly recommend them.

Irrawaddy vs Mekong
When you are thinking about planning a river cruise in South East Asia you might wonder whether you should choose the Mekong or Irrawaddy. Of course there is no comparison – they are two very different rivers running through different countries and landscapes. However, if you are travelling..
