    Booked online a few hours before pick up time, but the confirmation came through immediately. We were picked up in a tuk tuk by our friendly guide, Sameth. There were only 4 of us on boat, which made the trip personable. Food was choice of chicken wings or skewers, and a fruit platter. Luckily, no one was a vegetarian. We were on boat for 2 hours. Guide was informative. My partner used the washroom, and said it was not clean, ok for a guy, but didn't think I would have been able to use. Overall, the cruise was enjoyable. We were given choice to be dropped back to hotel or stay and enjoy the entertainment close to Quay.

What people are saying about Phnom Penh

This was fantastic! My partner and I ended up on the boat alone together and we were not disappointed. We would have also been OK if others had joined. The guide we had was kind and chatted with us but didn't partake in the food. The food was good. It's similar to a light dinner. We are two big grown men and grabbed more food after. The sunset was nice and the boat was easy to find. We used our phones and Google maps for our trip etc.

Lovely sunset cruise on the Mekong river. Food was very good and unlimited alcohol, Our guide Samet was a lovely guy and very knowledgeable.

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.
