What the guests tell about us?

  • Immersive & Thoughtful Experience Driven by Passion
    My friend & I did the Siem Reaper Village Ox Cart Ride Food Tour 2 weeks ago. We were pleasantly surprised that this turned out to be our favourite experience of our entire Cambodia trip, apart from of course seeing the Angkor Wat sunrise. The experience was immersive, thoughtful, and clearly driven by a huge passion and love for this country by the company’s founders and employees.

    Siem Reaper is a fairly young company, run by an energetic, passionate, and considerate group of young employees. My friend and I have been on many food tours in other countries, and we were struck by the maturity and professionalism of this young crew, wise beyond their years. And that is not to mention of fun and engrossing the activities were!
