Excellent, fun and informative tour. Travelling by tuk tuk on a dirt road was certainly an experience but a great way to see the local countryside. Silk weaving was very interesting and you can actually have a go at it yourself. Lovely sunset coming back by boat. Our tour guide Tien was delightful with a great sense of humour so all in all a lovely day.
Interesting insight to the lifestyle of the country people around Phnom Penh. Silk island shop a neat place.
My husband an I enjoyed this 1/2 day trip very much. We had a good guide who met us at the hotel and spoke good English. We were the only ones with the guide so we got to stay as long or as short as we wished at the various places he took us. Being a teacher, I particulary liked the visit to the school on the island where I went into the classroom and did a few English lessons with the local children. On the cruise back once again we were on the boat on our own. It was really peaceful and relaxing. Very enjoyable
The tour started out a little rough. The contact numbers I was supposed to call when I arrived at my hotel did not work. I finally called the emergency number and made contact. He told me to be waiting at 2pm. Finally called him back at 3pm . He told me there was a problem and they would pick me up shortly. Finally started the tour almost a hour and a half late. The tour wasn't too bad but the silk worm farm is not that good. We killed way too much time learning about silk worms and watching the weaving. Then I was pressured to buy their products. I bought a couple of silk articles and the lady started telling me how she really needed money as her Papa had took off and there was no one but her to support her sister and her mother. I resisted and did not buy anything else. On to the Mekong cruise part. It was me, the tour guide, and the boat captain being the only people on the boat. And the boat wasn't that small. Enjoyed the river cruise but nothing great.
