Tour Information
Overview

We have launched on last Oct 07 the first of a flotilla of 4 very unique, authentic and charming Sampans named “Song Xanh Sampan Mekong Delta Cruise“, designed for traveller looking for “private” cruise experiences in the Mekong Delta. On board, two spacious spaces of 15sqm each are equipped with beautiful bamboo and rattan furniture, creating a very charming atmosphere. A very attentive service is provided by a team of 4 crew members”

Having our head quarters based in Phu An/Cai Lay (next to Cai Be, Tien Giang Province), we operate cruises and related tours services in the Mekong Delta Cruises using our own built sampans, all stylishly designed and inspired by ancient authentic traditional Indochinese river boats.

Since June 2006, we also operate our own-built restaurant named “Le Longanier”, a beautiful Indochinese two storeys villa with authentic architecture and style.

Today, with a flottilla of 10 boats and employing more than 50 staffs (boats + restaurant), Mekong Horizon Co., Ltd. is recognised among the Vietnam based Travel Agents community as one of the leading private Cruise-Operator in the delta.

Each sampan will carry a charming rowing boat (“Xuong”), nicely designed for deeper cruises along small canals and arroyos during the itinerary.

Bicycles can also be taken on board (fixed on a rack a the back) for exciting “out of the track” countryside rides. Designed for individuals looking for authentic “Private Cruise” experience, with overnight on board.
– Equipped with a bathroom with lavabo and shower, the sampans can also be used for daily private cruise programs for FIT’s or Groups.
