Vespa driver Sear was also lovely and the tour itself was extremely interesting! Proper strange food, that was all part of the experience and also some of the best food I have eaten in Cambodia! I highly recommend choosing this tour and requesting Samnang and Sear for the best of best food tour ever!!

Sammang was an excellent host and showed us lots of delicious street food. As a foreigner it can be intimidating knowing which street food to choose so was great to have sammang guide you, as well as teach you about local culture. My favourite dish was the yellow pancake with meat in.

Lucky was a professional guide who is friendly and fluent in English. He explained the origins and creation process of each food item we’re eating thoroughly and shared many of his personal stories too. We enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to everyone :)

This has been the best get a guide day trip ive taken. The gudie was excellent, friendly, a love for his country and hapoy to discuss the difficult conversations around what happened during ther Khmar Rouge period. Hightly recomended! more than 5 stars

We had a lovely tour guide Samnang who took us to some fantastic places for food we would have never found ourselves. He explained how the dishes were made and the history behind them. Would highly recommend
