    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.

    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.

    Booked in the morning and the guide was waiting with the Remorque outside the hotel at the appointed time. Turned out that we were the only people on the boat. Samet our guide was a very thoughtful and intelligent person- very well informed about Phnom Penh and very proud Cambodian. He lives on the boat (which is owned by an Australian expat) and cheerfully works long days to support his family that live in the village. He was an excellent guide- typical Khmer politeness and warmth. The cruise itself was good- we were served beers (unlimited) and bbq finished off with fruit. I would highly recommend this over some of the larger operators partly for the small party size and partly for the guide. We offered him the opportunity to stay on the boat while we made our way back to the hotel and he absolutely refused saying that our safety was his priority and that he wouldn’t feel happy till he saw us safely to our door.
