Picked up in a tuck tuck and greeted by friendly and welcoming staff. The tour guide, on board, was knowledgeable, warm and entertaining, giving us a great insight into the different ways of life, along the river. Generous with beer and soft drinks and the fruit platter was a nice touch. Our tour guide even turned into a professional photographer! The sunset, on the Mekong, was absolutely beautiful! Lovely trip.

A really enthusiastic guide who knew a bunch of interesting details about Angkor Wat and surroundings. Great to get their early and enjoy the vibe anf fun to get around on bike to see many interesting places, that we would not have spotted ourselves. Highly recommended.

Very well organized tour, we had a great day. Our guide Sen was amazing, he demonstrated a lot of knowledge about Angkor and a huge sense of humor. He also took a lot of great pictures (know all nice spots)! I definitely recommend this tour and our guide Sen!
