What our clients are saying about their journeys along the Mekong


“Amazing river cruise of Vietnam and Cambodia”
David & Helen - New Zealand Mar 2019
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

“Wonders of Vietnam and Cambodia ”
Marj & Robin Armitage - NSW, Australia Mar 2019
Accommodation was really great on this trip with Travelmarvel. Tour Director Mr Tu was first class, the tour guides he had were very informative and also caring.

Ainslie & Robyn - WA, Australia Feb 2019

Cruise on the Avalon Saigon was better than expected. Great cabin, exceptional food and terrific crew made the journey very relaxing. Our tour director, Khan, was very efficient and personable and his story reflected Vietnam’s struggles and cemented what we had been learning on the many day tours. ...read more

“Vietnam to Cambodia on the Mekong River”
Rob & Catherine - VIC, Australia Jan 2019

This smelled so mouldy that we knew as soon as we opened the cabin that we could not stay there. The atmosphere was dank and frankly toxic. At the same moment, a cabin became available on deck 3 which was ...read more
