What people are saying about Phnom Penh
You need to understand that this is a very emotional tour. The tour only includes the 1 hour tour at S21 and 1 hour tour at the Killing Fields. This was enough for me as i was already upset listening to the horror stories of what happend in both these places. I would highly recommend taking both audio guides. I did not take photos or video as this felt to me very disrespectful. However others did. I left feeling very sad at what i had learnt. This should have never been allowed to happen and I hope it never happends again.
The tour gave a good but also a shocking impression of the horrible time for the Cambodians under Pol Pot and the red Khmer. It is simply unbelievable what Pol Pot is in charge for and what happened basically only 40 years ago. What is even more shocking that this guy had the support of the US and other nations in Europe for a long time. If you make this tour your can expect the worst you have ever seen done to human beings.
The Hop On Hop Off bus was a great way to see the S21 Prison and Killing Fields. They allow just enough time in each place and for a few extra dollars with your admission fees you can rent the audio guide with headphones. The minivan is air conditioned and they provide cold bottled water. Great value.
Well organised tour of the S21 prison and killing fields. We got audio guides for both and they really drive home the awful conditions and treatment went through in both places. Some of the information is very tough to hear but the tour is a must when in Cambodia.
