I really enjoyed the tour. The tour guide was very attentive in speaking English. Being Canadian I had no problem with it. He was very informative and efficient in how he organized the tour. Being a solo traveller, it was awesome having some to take my pictures of me being in the picture! Thanks again...

Great half-day tour of Phnom Penh

My friend and I had a short time in Phnom Penh and booked a half-day tour. Our guide, Kim, was great. He was very knowledgeable and fun. The Royal Palace, Wat Phnom and the National Museum were very interesting.

Very impressive program

English speaking guide, safe driver, well-kept vehicle. Unexpected closure of the palace was offset by an alternative offer.
