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

The most exciting part was that every day was different. From learning about the impact the Khmer Rouge had on everyone, exploring the temples around Angkor , travelling by boat through floating villages to staying with a family in a farming community.....

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

Be prepared for a few days where you will be travelling all day. At the genocide museum make some time to talk to one of the survivors and buy one of their books to discover more about what life was like under the Khmer Rouge.

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

Our guide took great care to use small family businesses, local restaurants and to encourage us to travel responsibly. Examples include not buying from children and instead taking to them and encouraging them to study hard at school, reducing the use of plastics by having refillable water available and actively saying no to plastic when shopping.

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


review 11 Jan 2019

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

It was great to have enough time to see everywhere properly, by staying two or three nights in most places, and not just rushing through like so many tours do. We had plenty of time to explore Angkor Wat and the other temples, with a ticket that let us go back later individually if we wanted.

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

The island trip and beach stay at the end was lovely, but Sihanoukville town itself is a rubbish dump meets building site, so don't expeect anything of that. The traveling times between different places also generally took longer than scheduled.

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

Yes, and there are many restaurants, craft centres and massage rooms you can seek out that support disabled and blind people or give opportunities to youngsters.

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

I enjoyed it - I wanted to experience Cambodia itself and not just as a tag-on to Vietnam or Thailand, and this is one of very few tours that offers that,

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

The people of Cambodia are amazing, so friendly and smiling. Also the wonderful flora and fauna, just fabulous, promenades of the river or ocean at dawn. Motor bike taxis and tuk tuks!

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

If you go to Sihanokville try and pre book the pre nup mangrove forest; we never got to do this but if you like bird watching it might be worth a try. the regular trip most people do is snorkelling and beach and the mangrove might be more interesting.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

I am sure the money we spent trickled down to the local level and benefited the local people. We were a small group so not intrusive. There was not always a place to fill up on safe water so buying bottled water and the plastic involved is a problem; need to promote recycling more, as in India. I wonder about all those people walking all over the temples at Angkor Wat; is this causing damage; it is fantastic to be able to do it but it might be worth looking at more closely.

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

Excellent value for money; Cambodia tugs at the heart strings and makes you want to help in some way.
