From the very start of the morning, 4:45am, we had an amazing journey. Our small group of 4 people was perfect. Travelling in a jeep was awesome as we were able to travel through the jungle to reach temples and gates that would have been tricky in a minibus. The openness of the jeep added to the excitement of the journey. We had both an appetising breakfast and lunch at local restaurants and an awesome morning tea of fresh fruits and coconut juice in the jungle. We also had unlimited supply of bottled water which was very much needed! Our guide, Rit, was very knowledgeable and paced our day perfectly. He was courteous and actively suggested great photo shots. He knew his stuff. I highly recommend this tour. Although it was a lot of walking and trekking over the sites, we are really happy to have done it and are still talking about how awesome the whole day was, even though our joints are still paining!!!!!!!
I took the 2pm tour and it was really nice to ride through the countryside as the sun was getting lower. A great break from the hustle of Siem Reap and the temples. Got a 10 minute intro with the motorbike which was easy to pick up and then it was time to ride. The roads can be sandy and uneven but it wasn’t too difficult. There were occasional 3 stops. I would give the tour a 3.5 because it’s not much more than riding through the country side, tour guide was nice but didn’t tell me much of anything about the route, why we were stopping where we stopped, or much of the history without prompt. As a result it is definitely overpriced but the countryside is well worth a visit because it truly is quite beautiful.
Really great fun would definitely recommend it. I was luck to be only one booked for the afternoon tour. After showing I could ride the bike. A Honda dream 125cc bike we set off on dirt tracks. Through country side you would not find yourself. Really enjoyed it seeing rural Cambodia. It was a circular trip and some road work in traffic but the guide was great so just a case of following him. You will get dirty as the roads are all very dusty but well worth it if you want to get out of the city. Pick up was by motorcycle too
This was a lovely way to end our time in Siem Reap. A few obstacles on the way like diversions due to blocked roads but the tour guide and driver didn't show any stress and kept us laughing all evening. It was nice seeing how other people live. The tour guide was so funny and lovely, shame I can't remember his name. It helped that we had a lovely funny group of people that made the evening more memorable.
Dorn was an excellent tour guide! He took us to see a real floating village (as apposed to stationed houses in the water) that was out of tourist route. We only saw another couple of visitors. The authentic experience is very memorable. Dorn even took us to his own village and met his family of four generations. It’s a real private tour on many levels!
