It has been an unbeatable success to have taken this excursion with this tour operator, they have taken care that I could make a visit with enough time within my narrow margin on the day I had today I have to mention the interest, kindness, wisdom and knowledge of the guide Kim Without which the excursion would not have been the same, likewise the driver always pending to facilitate things with my luggage with everything of course regardless of what the visit is and the excursion itself, which is a marvel, you should not stop doing it is very interesting very complete but does not honor the tour operator and the guide

It ended up being a personal tour. I was driven by Tuk Tuk to sights such as Wat Phnom, an Golden Temples. Visiting the Killing Fields, and Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, while somewhat difficult to grasp, are important sights to see in Phnom Penh. I had a great time on the tour, the driver was fantastic. Just experiencing the city in that way was incredible. Thanks!

Our guide Sing was very helpful and knowledgeable on the places that we visited.he made sure that all our needs are taken care and heade us feel comfortable despite the hot weather.he surely knows his job.

Very good trip - hard issues to deal with at S1 and the Killing Fields but the guide was warm, helpful and compassionate. Mr Sing, you are a credit to modern Cambodia

Everything went like clockwork. From pickup up at our out of the way B&B to drop of at our hotel. Good handoff at the cruise.
