Description of Cambodia highlights tour, 7 days

This exciting Cambodia highlights tour, 7 days, takes you overland from the riverside capital Phnom Penh, through the timeless landscapes of rural Cambodia, to the world famous temples of Angkor. We devote ample time to Angkor, so you have the time to explore this extraordinary region in depth and at your leisure over four days, with a chance to enjoy Siem Reap’s markets and cafes, too. As you may only visit Angkor once in your life, it makes sense to do it properly – this tour allows you to do that, seeing Angkor Wat at dawn, the ruined city of Angkor Tom, the jungle-clad ruins of Preah Khan, and Ta Prom, the famous ‘Tomb Raider’ temple.

Phnom Penh is also a highlight of this tour – a hectic, chaotic city that’s lots of fun, too – and throughout you’ll meet friendly local people, enjoy comfy accommodation and expert local guides, and tuck into plenty of excellent local food (deep fried tarantulas optional!).

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Cambodia highlights tour, 7 days

Environment

Information: Providing suitable, relevant information for our customers; to help them to gain a wider understanding of our style of tourism that focuses on learning, genuine interaction with the local communities, reciprocity and cultural exchange processes. To be aware of the potential impact of tourism on the local society, culture and environment, and to behave and dress appropriately with a respect and appreciation for local customs, mores and traditions and a respect for the ecology of areas visited. Our guides and leaders thus facilitate communication of our values to both travellers and local communities, educating them in sustainable tourism practices

Group sizes: By limiting groups to small sizes we aim to reduce the impact on both local communities and the environment whilst allowing for greater genuine interaction with said communities. It also results in a higher guide/customer ratio thus greater facility for supervision and individual assistance and allows us to use smaller hotels and restaurants and employ the services of more genuinely ‘local’ operators perhaps not otherwise well equipped for larger groups.

Destinations: We combine the well known tourist sites with many off-the-beaten-track, rarely visited destinations thus diverting tourist revenue and contact with responsible tourism into areas not usually benefiting as well as providing a more authentic view of the region visited.

Community

Local products: As much as possible we aim to employ local personnel, (guides, drivers, agents etc). Having smaller groups, we are able to use small privately owned local restaurants and privately owned accommodation.

Customers are also encouraged to buy and use local products and services as much as possible in order to support and stimulate the local economy. We visit handicraft and local markets and encourage the purchase of hand made items to directly support the local economy and help to ensure that crafts, sometimes learnt through generations, are able to survive.

Throughout the duration of our Cambodia holidays we help sustain local businesses and enterprises through regular visits to their sites (and if present souvenir shops). These include the handicraft school for handicapped persons in Siem Reap and the 'land-mine museum' in Siem Reap where we help support the organizer's mine clearance operations through donations.

Instruction: By explaining our methods and the reasons behind them local agents, guides and hotels are encouraged by us to adopt further responsible tourism practices themselves and guides and drivers are provided with additional training in this respect.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Walk through a jungle to get to a temple and seeing snippets of wildlife along the way including a snake!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Although hot and humid I am so glad I went during low season in April as I got to take everything in without huge crowds getting in the way.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?




4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Just a really lovely holiday. Perfect pace with lots of sightseeing but also lots of free time to relax. Tour guides were fab, very knowledgeable and friendly and not in your face! A great country with a fascinating history and great people. I felt very well looked after.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The sites I visited in Cambodia were spectacular, and being able to just relax knowing that my tour operator was looking after everything was so valuable for
me. They made me feel truly immersed in the local environment, food, people in a very short time (1 week) and I loved my tuktuk trips just taking in the
scenery.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Trust the tour operator choices for food and sites to visit. People who usually manage their own trips (like me) may tend to be drawn to tourist places and
direct the trip too much. Don't ... these guys know what they are doing and why, just take it all in and enjoy not having to organise anything for once. It's a
holiday.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


I very much felt that the trip was oriented towards local communities in the sense that while off course you want to do all the tourist stuff and sites, we often
chose to eat in local places rather than on the main street. The tour operator knows a lot of local people and deals directly with them instead of going through
third parties.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Excellent holiday. Being a very critical person, I must admit this was one of the best holidays I ever had (and I have travelled a lot in my life). It's the first time I
actually booked a tour, as I usually plan my own visits. But it will not be the last one. If you can afford it, this is the best and most relaxing way to spend a
holiday. Thanks a lot to Mark and Mr Nak!!
