What people are saying about Siem Reap

Had a lovely time with Seth. He was so attentive, polite and made sure I had everything to taste. We went only to local restaurants, so we ate like combodians: fried rice noodles, fried garlic, traditional soup and a lot of flavoured vegetables. And as desert some crunchy insects. We ended the day by zipping a beer and instead of peanuts, the insects sure made for an unique replacement. We also talked about the cambodian life in general, so I would definitely recommend the tour to get more insights into Cambodia.

Do this cooking class! It is awesome!!! Coco, Dee and Sim were so welcoming and knowledgable. I did the cooking school with my three teenage kids and they made us all feel so at home. Better still the food we cooked was incredible. The spring rolls were the absolute best - every time we have springs rolls now we say "Dee's are better"! Now we know how to cook them so we can't wait to show off yo our friends back home. Thanks Dee!! Jacq, Tom, Tilly and Fred!

The class was wonderful. We could choose our preferred dishes from a menu. The cooking space was spacious and well equipped. A family run business with an excellent teacher. Meeting nice solo travellers/classmates was a bonus.

Had an amazing day. Hosts were super nice. Loved the venue, beautiful lake with some turtles inside. Food was delicious and we got some excellent cooking skills tips as well as recipes.

Really great cooking experience! The food was amazing. I had a great time!
