Is this a Private Tour or a Group Tour?

All of our tours are private tailor made itineraries, customised for you - we can amend things to entirely suit you around the cruise itinerary.

You will have your own private car, driver and guide on any additional excursions you choose to do before or after the cruise.

All shore excursions are done on a group basis with other cruise passengers.

What are the departure dates?

Let us know your preferred dates of travel and we will find the best and most suitable flights to fit your itinerary.

We will organise dates around departure dates with Prestige Cruises.

Which Airlines do you use?

We work with all the major airlines flying to this part of the world.

Typically for Indochina, Thai Airways, Singapore Airlines, Vietnam Airlines and Emirates would be airlines we would often use.

However, just let us know your preferred airline if you have one. We can organise flights from any regional destination in the UK.

There are direct flights from the UK to Saigon currently with Vietnam Airlines.

Which Hotels do you use?

We're careful with our choice of hotels, but we're guided by our customers also. If you have some preferred hotels, just let us know.

We specialise in boutique hotels and so we will often suggest some of our favourite smaller hotels where we think these will be suitable.

We keep on top of hotel developments in Vietnam from our office in Saigon and regularly inspect the hotels we use.

Do you cater for Solo Travellers?

Yes, we have many solo travellers and Indochina is a very safe, friendly and welcoming destination for those travelling alone.

Mekong River cruises are a popular option for solo travellers. The Prestige II Cruise often has no Single Supplements on many departures.

Why should we book with you and not directly?

We have the very best rates to pass on to you from the Prestige II, which should make it cheaper than booking directly.

All of our holidays are priced in Pound Sterling which means you are not exposed to currency fluctuations and poor exchange rates if you are paying for your cruise in US Dollars.

Your holiday also enjoys full financial protection through ATOL and the Travel Trust Association by booking with us.

How long have you been organising River Cruise holidays?

We've been organising tailor made river cruise holidays to Indochina for over 10 years.

Our team has a wealth of combined experience in the industry and our Director has been involved in organising holidays to Indochina since the early 1990's.

Our partners on the ground in Indochina have over 20 years experience in operating there.

They understand the country extremely well and have a strong infrastructure of staff, guides and vehicles within Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. We've had the same partnership for over 10 years.

How does your office in Vietnam help?

We have our own staff in Saigon which helps in many ways with our customers in Indochina and South East Asia.

It helps us to keep on top of any new hotel and travel developments in the region and forge stronger relationships with hotels and other partners.

We regularly do our own inspections of hotels and destinations in the region.

Should our clients need any assistance during a trip, we always have at least one of our own staff on the same time zone, and we're open 7 days a week in Saigon.
