Full description

At 8:00 AM, depart from your hotel and drive to the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek, located about 16 kms south of Phnom Penh. Here,you will experience a very moving and confronting experience. The Killing Fields were the final resting place for over 17,000 men, women, children and infants between 1975 and 1978. It is estimated the Khmer Rouge Regime took the lives of between 2 and 4 million Cambodians during their destructive and devastating time in control between 1975 and 1979. Your guide will provide you with a detailed tour of the fields. Continue to Tuol Sleng Museum. In 1975, Tuol Svay Prey High School was taken over by Pol Pot’s security forces and turned into a prison known as Security Prison 21 (S-21). It rapidly became the largest center of detention and torture in the country. Prisoners were repeatedly tortured and coerced into naming family members and close associates, who were in turn arrested, brought to S21, tortured and eventually killed. Spend time discovering the harrowing truths of the prison. At 12:00 PM, your tour comes to an end and your guide will transfer you back to your hotel.

Our half day trip to S-21 and the Killing Fields was excellent. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and sensitive to the complicated nature of visiting these two sites. His English was excellent and easy to understand. He was willing to answer any questions we had and we appreciate the he shared his own family story with us as well. The transportation was clean and well maintained. I highly recommend visiting these two sites with a tour guide who can answer questions and explain the significance of both places.

Thumbs up to Dat! He was my guide showing me around the the small village. He also made stops along the way and pointed out interesting land marks in the area. It was a unique experience and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys the outdoors. The killing fields was is a sad and very tragic event that happened in Cambodia's past, that must never be forgotten. The audio tour cost $6 USD and well worth it. Two thumbs up

This was an extraordinary tour. My family and I had a great experience visiting Angkor Wat, Bayon and Tah Prom temples. Our guide Sam is very professional, he knows the exact spots and times for each (and a great photographer!). Yes, waking up early to watch the sunrise at 6:00 am at Angkor Wat can be exhausting but is worth every minute. The vehicle is comfortable and we were provided with cold water and towels along the way. Highly recommended
