We were lucky to have a private experience today with Bun who was an amazing guide. Before going out on the boat we saw a local market and experienced fruit and food from the countryside. Instead of just seeing Kampong Phluk from the boat, we walked through the village and met with the locals. As we went out on the lake we had a little bit of rain which made for a more interesting atmosphere and experience. Later-on on the way back we explored the village by boat as well - we loved the vibe and the people.

Don’t hesitate to book this tour—this is the one you want. The money from your booking goes directly to help the village, and there are no scams here. Just an excellent look at life in a floating village. Our guide, Thy, did a phenomenal job of answering all of our questions about the village. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Siem Reap.

The tour was incredible. We had an eye-opening adventure through the fishing villages and the largest lake in South East Asia. This review would also be incomplete without a massive shout-out to, Sa, our stellar guide! He showed us the true meaning of Cambodian hospitality through his warm, patient demeanour and willingness to engage with us on a wide range of discussion topics surrounding life in Cambodia. If we could, we would give Mr. Sa 10 stars! Make sure to ask the tour agency for him if you want to guarantee the best possible experience for yourselves. Thank you Sa and we hope to see you again!
