The Mekong: From Laos To China

Just got off a fantastic trip on the Red River on RV Angkor Pandaw. It was an amazing 10 days of wonderful excursions, delicious food & an AWESOME crew. THE guides Tifo &Vu were so knowledgeable & informative as well as being wonderful, warm & courteous. The ship crew headed by Purser Saroun were absolutely outstanding! I highly recommend this trip. It was our first with Pandaw & look forward to taking another one soon. Read more

Myanmar: Cruising The Chindwin River

We were thoroughly enamored by the people that we met on that very remote river cruise. Experiences that raw are very hard to come by in this world. We'd love to have had lots more time (and a private guide) in these villages. "Off the grid" changes very quickly, even this cruise has already been underway for a year maybe? Steph and I love this. Yes, we want more! Read more

Danube River Cruise with Dracular's castle November 2016

5.0

Danube Discovery Cruise

We thought the trip was excellent. The river boat was good and the people on the boat were VERY gracious. I loved the size of the river boat. Our TD, Dusan J, was excellent. Would have loved for him to stay with us the whole trip. He left after the cruise and we had another one for mountain portion of the trip. He was OK but I can't remember his name. He was very knowledgeable about the area. It would be better if you kept same one for all of the trip. I will take another river cruise with smarTours. Read more
