A genuine experience

This tour was very well organised, very informative and very enjoyable. I found it difficult to know exactly where we were going before the trip but the experience was interesting nonetheless. It would be good to have a map available to know exactly the route the tour takes. I highly recommend this experience. Great guide.

I would recommend this to anyone

We all had a wonderful time, our guide Quan was a local, very knowledgable and explained cultural practices very clearly and too the time to explain the basics of the religions also. It was great to be able to support the local as well by donating to the school, and buying books for the children. There was no pressure at all, just an opportunity . Thank you for a wonderful experience.

  • Brilliant ! Exhilarating! Noah Morkunas

Brilliant ! Exhilarating!

Brilliant ! Exhilarating! are the kind of worlds one can throw around to describe the display of acrobatics. A group of young men and women from an underprivileged background show us what they can do provided a little help. If also gives an entertainment of a different flavour after a long tiring day of temple hopping. So don't miss it, if you are in Siem Reap.

Did great job. Make sure we all had a great time. Would have liked many night time activities. Taichi in the morning could be improved as it felt rushed. Otherwise we had a fantastic time on the junk.
