Wonderful experience with great guides!

We booked the travel from Siem Reap to Phnom Phen and had a great time. Our guide picked us up from our hotel & drove us safely to the boat. The entire way explaining what we were seeing, stopping at interesting places, & having a conversation about Cambodia & life in general. The van trip was a little longer than we expected, but they made sure to take care of us on the way. Once on the boat we were served a delicious meal & fresh beverages all they way to the city. We didn't want the trip to end! Thank you to our guides & all the employees on this trip.

A relaxing way to travel

We very much enjoyed the road / river trip and the insights provided by the guides. Very interesting to see floating villages at the same time as the rapid development of the city as we approached Phnom Penh. It was a wonderful way to enter the capital city. The lunch on board was delicious. This trip would be even better during the season when most of the journey can be done by river. The organisation and communication was very good. It’s worth noting that access to the boat was down a wet, steep, and very muddy river bank - this didn’t cause any problems at all, but it would be difficult for someone with reduced mobility (and would trash delicate shoes). Also access to the road from the boat at the end of the journey was by steep steps. We were not told whether life jackets are carried on board.

This trip is primarily a car ride of approximately 4.5 hours on National Road No. 6, so very fast and some dangerous situations. The boat trip only takes about 2.5 hours and is not very attractive. Boarding needs a lot of sportiness. The two guides tried very hard to answer all questions and to bring us closer to the country and its people. The lunch on board is fine and there are enough drinks during the trip. Our expectations regarding this trip were only partially met.
