What people are saying about Phnom Penh

You need a strong heart for this trip. The sights and locations are in very very poor regions. It's an amazing UNESCO sight with a very very strong culture. A very unique experience. The guide was nice but definitely on a tight script. Organized and great transportation. But, brace yourself the areas are in bad shape. On another note it would be half the price to go yourself but not as safe or informed.

Dinner cruise in Style

The night Dinner Cruise was very relaxing after a day of sightseeing in Phnom Pehn. It was great to see Phnom Pehn city lights while cruising along the river and enjoying a lovely meal. We experienced exceptional service with wait staff and the cocktails were delicious!

We loved this activity. We tried new dishes in a restaurant that we most likely would not have entered otherwise. Very interesting to know the Cambodian culture through its gastronomy. The great guide. The tour is highly recommended.

Very nice outing.... Very interesting and jovial guide. Exit a bit expensive!!
