Our family of seven spanning three generations had the boat to ourselves and stayed for one night. Four of us did the walking tour in the village and three did a short cycle trip. We were treated to foot massage after sunset on the third level deck. Very relaxing way to experience the delta.

The tour along the Mekong made me feel like I saw a lot of land and people in a very comfortable and relaxed way. The food was amazingly good and rich. The only small drawback was the AC (which unfortunately only half worked) and the shower was not separated (shower between toilet and sink). But otherwise really two successful days!

We spent one night on Cochin China, and we were overall very satisfied. We were alone on the boat with our guide, so the staff was very caring: cocktail, meal, bike tour (they even offered a foot massage ..). The meal was really excellent. On the other hand the quantities of the evening meal were too important in my opinion. Question room, this is where I am mixed. The rooms are in the middle of the boat so the deck goes around. Also, we had the curtains closed permanently. Cumulative to a very nice mattress but very high, with a low ceiling, it gives a feeling of oppression. In addition, I have seasickness, so cumulated with all these factors, although the boat did not move much, I was sick all night. Pity ! Finally, the ride on the Mekong was great. The landscapes were very varied, and the roof terrace allowed to take advantage to the maximum.

We were alone on our boat just accompanied by our guide Everything was perfect, cooking, personal activities (floating markets, bike, ...) We spent a night on the Mekong from 14h to 9h in the morning (this is called cruise 2 days 1 night !!) but it was a very beautiful experience. Foot massage .... Clean room and good (of course small) and bathroom just enough for a night ...
