Viking Mekong was a terrific adventure. Our Program Directors in Bangkok  were very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. It was a pleasure to be in their company and to have them lead us while in Thailand on the extension. Our Program Director in Vietnam and Cambodia while on the cruise and afterward, was outstanding. His personality is exactly what is needed on a river cruise. His attentiveness to every detail, his engaging personality and his expertise were most appreciated. He helped in many ways to make this experience a truly memorable adventure. The local guides in both Vietnam and Cambodia were also excellent and committed to making our experiences enjoyable and educational. The staff on the ship were outstanding in every way. Thank you to all who helped to make this a wonderful experience.

Excellent cruise/land package. Very good itinerary. Viking's staff on and off the ship were outstanding and the trip was, likewise, outstanding. Would highly recommend, except that traveler has to be up to a lot of walking and a lot of stairs. Ship cabin was small (as expected) but workable for a week. Ship staff went the extra mile to please us and accommodate any special needs or requests. Our guide (there were two) was very good and looked after a couple of special needs we had re food. Overall excellent.
