Winifred Menezes review 17 Jul 2017
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
Seeing Angkor Wat, one of us ate spiders, frogs and other inspects having my feet cleaned by fishes. Cambodian cooking class
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
Go for it
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
I hope so
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
Would have liked more "on your own time" at Angkor Wat organized breakfast at the temple, on the day we got up at 4:30 to see the sun rise
Read the operator's response here:
Thank you for your kind comments, so please you enjoyed your tour of Cambodia - thankfully spider/insect eating is not compulsory!
Your tour does benefit local people. Our guides usually explain the benefits of our tours to the community and environment. You eat in local restaurants, stay in locally owned hotels, we use local transport owned by our Khmer colleagues and use local guides. We travel in small groups (in your case only the three of you) which enables us to use locally run places, often designed for local people as opposed to specifically for tourists or larger tour groups, and to support smaller community based projects. We also encourage people to purchase local handicrafts at the places we visit.
Sorry there wasn't enough time to wander at will - its tricky in a 7 day tour of Cambodia and at Angkor we try and introduce you to a variety of temples from differing periods, at different times of day, architectural styles .... but we can't help but share your wish that there was more time.
