What people are saying about Eastern Cambodia

Sen (our tour guide) was amazing! He went into so much detail about the four different temples he took us round! We got the chance to ask loads of questions and he was our own little personal photographer as well! It was such an amazing experience! Air conditioned bus, unlimited amounts of free cold water and he also took us to a lovely place to get food as well! Would definitely recommend! We don’t usually use tour guides but Sen was amazing! I learnt so much about Cambodia and met so many great people! Such a good price for what you get! Thank you Sen

What an absolutely beautiful experience on Angkor Wat tour with a tour guide David! The tour was very well organized and nothing has been missed. David is very lovely and informative guide. He not only talked about the history of Angkor Wat, but also shared information about the country, food and people. Not to mention we went for a local breakfast as part of the tour which was delicious! Highly recommended!

Our guide Mr T was the friendliest guy that kept us in high spirits! Not to mention, he is a magician when it comes to getting instagram worthy pictures, both the angles and the locations is his ace! I would highly recommend this tour - you get more than what you pay for and get to learn about Cambodian culture in good company. You get water, lunch and time to rest but do bring snacks just in case!

Our guide Sen was so knowledgeable and knows how to take amazing photos for you. The group was a small five which was nice. Aircon in vehicle was great and recommendations of restaurant was perfect! Loved it all!
