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


- Experience the Mekong Delta, its people, and its floating markets firsthand on a 2-day river cruise
- Discover the charming village of Mekong River, until recently almost unknown to tourists
- Bargain with the traders on a floating market
- Relax aboard the comfortable ship
- Snack on fresh, juicy fruits and meet the locals


Accommodation: Only one (01) cabin in 40sqm with French balcony, panorama lounge (convertable to a second bedroom), sun deck. Modern safety equipment, heat, smoke detectors and fire fighting system
