What people are saying about Phnom Penh

First of all, after asking the organizer, we were able to combine the Phnom Penh city tour and the S-21 prison & killing fields tour, both of which were actually intended as a half-day tour in the morning, into a full-day tour without any problems. The tour is extremely exciting and also very depressing and touching due to the visit to the prison and the killing fields. In the museum (with an extra guide if desired) you can see many exhibits from Angkor. Unfortunately, the royal palace was closed for renovations at the time of our stay. Our fabulous guide, whose almost accent-free English is very easy to understand even for non-native speakers, provided us with a lot of information about the history of Cambodia and especially its darkest chapter, the reign of terror of the Khmer Rouge. Highly Recommended!

Kim was a great tour guide. the car was beautiful and felt luxurious with great air con and my partner and I felt we got more out of this tour with the personal experiences of our incredible guide. there was a lovely balance of history and purpose intertwined with giving us some space to look in our own time. Kim's English was fantastic also and his knowledge of the survivors and relationship also made this tour special

The tour is very interesting. The guide spoke English very well. He picked us up at the agreed time in a timely manner (even asking to be earlier). The explanations were very good. The guide very attentive. Recommended this tour.

This is a pick up and trip off tour. As such, it was fine. The museums are informative, respectful and heartbreaking, but an essential experience for adults visiting Cambodia.

My guide was great & super helpful! It was lovely getting into a cool bus with a refreshing complimentary bottle of water after hours walking around outside in the heat.
