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.
