Amazing Experience on the Countryside Tour

My wife and I did the Countryside tour with Ben and Ven. We got to see some “off the beaten path” arras and stuff that we never would have seen without going on the tour, such as lunches at home stays, Cambodian donuts on top of Kulén Mountain and snacks at a local market.

Both Ben and Ven helped make this one of the most amazing experiences I have had. It was amazing to get to know both of them and learn all about the Cambodian culture.

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!

This was a very unique experience. Borith and his guides are well experienced and take pride in what they do. I ended up doing two activities with them and both of them were special in their own way. Highly recommend!

Responsible and Sustainable Tourism

The best activity we have done in Cambodia!

We have been able to know the daily life of several Cambodian families in a respectful way towards them and the environment. Our guide San has taught us secrets of the countryside that we would not have discovered ourselves. He was the most careful, thoughtful and responsible guide we have ever met.

A young team full of knowledge and eager to do things right. Enjoy Cambodia by developing responsible and sustainable tourism, you will not regret it!

Excellent way of ending our Cambodia holiday

We did the bike tour on our last day in Siem Reap and to dive in the earth of the countryside away from other tourists was just what we needed after seeing all the beautiful temples of Angkor.
The itinerary is very well selected: we especially enjoyed the local market and the lotus farm.
