Our Christmas escape for 2016 was a Mekong River cruise on the Avalon Siem Reap departing Ho Chi Minh on 23/12/16 and leaving the boat in Phnom Penh on the 29th. What an excellent choice that was. The beauty of the river, the organisational skills of the Avalon Team, Mr Ha On and his two local guides, Hai and Sean... More

Guest of our trip were couples from different countries (US, UK, Australia, Swiss, Luxemburg and ourselves from Netherlands; part of our group were 2 kids 10-15). We have a surprisingly positive opinion about... More

We booked a three-night cruise from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap and could not have been more pleased. Our bonus was that we were the only couple booked so, basically, we had a private ship, crew, and tour guide! The cruise is an excellent way to really engage with the river and Cambodia itself. The side excursions were well-planned, fun,... More

The excursions were all included in the price and the selection wad wonderful, we experienced villages, temples, palaces, memorials, the killing fields, every place was fantastic. The food was excellent, the service was 5 star. The river cruise was small enough to enable each of us... More

I came across Heritage Lines "Jahan" while researching Mekong river cruises and booked through Viet Prestige Travel. What a find! Everything about the Jahan is exceptional - the ship is small, just 26 cabins, allowing you to really get to know your fellow passengers. In fact, there were only 41 during our week, a mix of Aussies, Brits, Kiwis, Swiss,... More

The whole experience was wonderful, very relaxing, but plenty of activities as well. We had a group of 32, which was a good number so we all got to know each other, and despite there being a mix of ages from... More

5 star experience all the way. What Avalon does not say is that the Avalon Siem Reap can access waterways that other river boats cannot. Number of passengers is limited to 36. The experience is everything and far more than what is advertised in their brochure. Cruise director Phiem was superb as was local guide Hai who accompanied us in... More

This was a five star experience my husband and I and our friends loved. Worth every penny. Food prep was nirvana. Being a Cordon Blue Paris graduate I can make that determination. On board staff without equal. We loved each and everyone of them. Guides so excellent with a superior level of knowledge. We were only 12 persons on our... More
