Did you always dream of exploring the Mekong in an individual way? The new Gecko Eyes houseboats are perfect for you. The fleet consists of three beautiful vessels and the private houseboats are perfect for two people, made for tours on a high level — for couples and small families.

The guest area (40 sqm) has a luxurious cabin (double or twin occupancy) with a French balcony, air-con, a private bathroom, a panoramic lounge with French balconies and a sun deck at the bow. On request, the salon can be changed into an additional bedroom with two beds.

Take a 2 day cruise with Gecko Eyes and enjoy the lavish countryside along the river banks of the Mekong river in style.

I found Travel Agent Hanoi from the web, 3 months prior to our travel. From the first email, Simon was very responsive, friendly and professional. He asked relevant questions. We are 4 adults made up of my mum, my aunt, my niece and me. (There is no option to select “family” for this review). Both my mum and aunt are elder retirees. Simon and Ngat planned a suitable itinerary for us, considering our interests, ages, physical abilities. Kind of tricky as our ages range from 21 to 82! They took the stress of holiday planning from me so I can enjoy the holiday…(more)

Honest, responsive, friendly with the personal touch, highly recommended!

I have been travelling through Asia for almost 20 years, very often with local travel agencies. I picked Travel Agent Hanoi for Vietnam. Travel Agent Hanoi arranged a 3 week private tour, incl. hotel, driver etc.They had the best program (Classic destinations as well as discoveries, e.g. food tasting in Hanoi (delicious) or bicycle tours through rice fields in Hoi An), the best hotels (where it matters) at a reasonable price. So far business as usual. But what made the essential difference to about 10 other vietnamese agencies asked at the same time? Travel Agent Hanoi answered in minutes and was absolutely…(more)

The best way to discover Vietnam Stefan Weise

I’ve travelled all over the world, both with the use of travel agents and without. Hanoi Travel Agency (Ngat) was by far the most comprehensive and pleasant agency I have ever used.

She put together an outstanding itinerary with complete details for pick up, transfers, hotel stays etc. Her recommnedations really made the whole stay worthwhile for both my daughter and me in Vietnam.

Ngat was courteous and always replied promptly to my emails. I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to travel to Vietnam!

“The most pleasant, experienced and courteous travel agency” David Chan

We have unforgetable week in North of Vietnam with Travel Agent Hanoi. We chose to go with Ngat, because she was very flexible and patient to our wishes and let us create our itinerary just like we wanted. Her delicate and professional tips on our itinerary were so useful and practical that we were very happy that we listened and used it.

“Reliable agency with excellent attitude to customer” anzelikajus

Ngat managed to arrange our Vietnam tour on very short notice and could even change an accommodation type (from hotel to homestay) upon request during the trip. She was easily reachable via mail and whatsapp, so we felt in good hands. We could lean back, enjoy the country and had a really good time. Ah, and her food tour is very recommendable to dive into Vietnamese cuisine. Thank you!

Excellent service Paul Baxter

“Simon and Ngat planned a 14 day trip to Vietnam and Cambodia.
As we arrived we were met by a personal driver to take us to the hotel. Once settled in the hotel, Simon and Ngat met us for a street food tour that was amazing.
The day after was off for a 3 day cruise in Halong bay.”

Amazing Trip John Dawson

Based on the traditional An Giang fishing boats we are offering you new luxurious houseboats for private and exclusive tours through the Mekong delta. The vessels, built by local craftsmen, are made of local woods decorated with elegant carvings for a special touch.

To provide your safety and well-being, our staff on board (captain, sailor, chef, tour guide) is at your constant disposition.

The guest area (40 sqm) has a luxurious cabin (double or twin occupancy) with a French balcony, air-con, a private bathroom, a panoramic lounge with French balconies and a sun deck at the bow. On request, the salon can be changed into an additional bedroom with two beds.

The staff area, with a well equipped kitchen, is at the back of the ship. This area is completely separated from the guest area by a lockable door to ensure your privacy.

Visit the famous floating markets with the Gecko Eyes, travel through small canals along orchards and floating villages up to the boarder to Cambodia or down to the port cities of Ha Tien or Rach Gia.

Due to its shallow draft, the Gecko Eyes is able to glide through small tributaries and canals of the Mekong delta. The sailing area is from My Tho and Cai Be, near Saigon, through the lovely colonial town of Sa Dec, along Can Tho with its famous floating markets to Long Xuyen an Chau Doc near the Cambodian border. Basically the Gecko Eyes has the whole Mekong delta region at its disposal, as the ships are self-sufficient for several days.

There are always bikes on board for spontaneous trips on the river islands along the small canals.

Meals day 1: lunch, dinner; day 2: breakfast, lunch

N. B.: The floating markets in the Mekong Delta are no tourist markets but wholesale markets where produce of the Mekong Delta like fruits and vegetables are traded. For this reason the number of boats on the market fluctuates depending on harvesting seasons and market demand. Furthermore, modern wholesale markets are becoming more popular in Vietnam. This can result in decreasing numbers of boats being present on the markets.

We pick you up at your hotel in Saigon (district 1 and parts of district 3) and will take you back there after your cruise. The drive to / from Cai Be takes about 2 hours, to / from Can Tho about 4 hours.
