If I could give 10 stars I would. The trip to the Genocide Museum and Killing Fields was an amazing if heart wrenching experience. I knew nothing about the events that unfolded under the Khmer Rouge before visiting. The tour guide was brilliant, he really knew his stuff and gave us a very in depth history of the tragic events that happened under the Khmer Rouge. On the day, the last two survivors of the S-21 Detention Centre were there at the museum, which made it even more 'real' knowing that what happened was still in living memory and I bought their biographies and had photos with them. The Killing Fields were grim but a fitting tribute to those who lost their lives. Overall, a fantastic tour.

We went on this tour which was just over four hours and had a terrific guide who spoke English very well and was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the prison and the killing fields. We got picked up from our hotel and travelled in a comfortable air conditioned vehicle.

We visited the Choeung Ek (S21 Prison) first before going out to the Killing Fields. To fully understand what actually happened under the Khmer Rouges regime you should do the prison first.

My husband, my two teenage daughters and I found it difficult coming to terms with the visual atrocities that happened to the lovely people of Cambodia, and I personally needed to move out of the tour group every now and then to compose myself. However, no matter how startling or disturbing it is, everyone who visits Cambodia should visit here to truly understand the horrific history of Cambodia.

At the Genocide Museum, we were fortunate enough to also meet Bou Meng and Chum Mey the last two survivors of S21 Prison. A truly humbling experience.

This was a powerful and harrowing tour which has given us memories that will stay with us forever.
