This is a top rate tour, and I highly recommend it. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided us with many details at the Genocide Museum and the Killing Fields. The price was reasonable considering we were picked up and dropped off at our hotel and transportation was provided to both sites. The only glitch was the bus was 45 minutes or more late picking us up in the morning from our hotel, apparently due to traffic. I suggest either making the start time later or sending the bus out earlier as we sat in the lobby for an hour waiting.
This tour was extremely good. Well worth the money and our guide was fantastic with the personal experience of having a family member being unwillingly involved in the Pol Pot regime. It was great having a small group as well. It was very confronting but that was to be expected.
A must-see in Phnom Penh. Our guide was knowledgable and a great storyteller. Highly recommend this very emotional tour.
Our tour was fantastic, our guide was very knowledgeable. Although the subject matter was very hard to take it was fascinating. This a must see tour, remember t bring your hankies.
Very interesting tour. Thanks to Daro,our guide who speaks English very well and knowledgeable of the history of the places we went to. Hard to imagine, something like this has happened to people especially innocent children .
This tour is a MUST. I highly recommend you do it as soon as you arrive in Cambodia. It enables you to understand how and why the society runs as it is. The tour guide was fantastic, his knowledge was comprehensive. he was sensitive, caring and empathic. An extremely emotional tour, heart breaking but a must in today's political climate. If you only do one tour this is the one to do. Do not do the genocide museum or the killing fields without a guide.
Excellent tour guide, very knowledgable. Good tour, Really interesting, but horrific what actually happened.
Excellent tour and tour guide couldn't have been better. Very knowledgable. Well paced tour covering Cambodia's very dark history
This was a fantastic tour and our guide Daro was superb. We visited the museum first and heard from genocide survivors about exactly what went on at S21. Our trip to the Killing Fields was similarly moving. Well recommended.
We highly recommend this tour and our guide, Daro. Although it was a somber tour by nature, Daro did an excellent job. His explanations were clear and descriptive and he was helpful answering any questions we had. We liked that it was a smaller group for the Genocide Museum and the Killing Fields. We feel that it helped to put the rest of our travels of the beautiful country of Cambodia in perspective. We recommend this tour and our guide, Daro, if you are in Phnom Penh.
A must see. The tour is extremely emotional and intense but it is also extremely interesting and captivating. Our tour guide Daro was excellent. HE was extremely knowledgable, friendly, approachable, fun and spoke very good english. Definitely use these guys!
Extremely interesting. Great tour guide. Make sure you bring comfy trainers and lots of water. We went in rainy season which meant there are bones and clothing coming up at the killing fields, extremely harrowing. Not for the faint hearted but an important part of Cambodian history
Was picked up from my hotel with the guide coming to get me from reception. Modern mini bus with air con!! Straight away our guide who was a top class guy with loads of passion and knowledge started telling us all about cambodia and its history. The tour of the genocide museum should be taken by everyone who visits Phnom Penh. Killing Fields is ok - not as powerful as the museum but completes the picture and story so needs to be done.
This tour was perfect. Although a very sad day, our guide made sure to cover all points and details so we were left without any questions. He was so passionate about Cambodia's history and made a huge effort to keep the tour going even throughout our ride back to the hotel. Definitely recommend!
The tour was super informative and insightful. Our guide really provided excellent historical information and context for everything we saw and it's pretty harrowing stuff, which really made the whole experience a lot more impactful and meaningful than just showing up and trying to supplement what you're looking at by reading a guidebook. Travelling from the sites by air-conditioned minivan was nice, too, and I appreciated they provided hotel pick-up/drop-off, which made the tour a breeze.
This tour was really well done by the guide. It's important to have a good guide for trips like this due ton the nature of what happened and this guide was exactly that. He knew everything and told the stories well.
Very heartfelt tour of what was truly a cruel and unnecessary time for the Khmer people. Such an informative tour and great tour guide. Highly recommended for those wishing to learn about the history of the Khmer Rouge and to pay respect to the fallen and surviving victims.
I can to Cambodia with a very limited understanding of the history of its capital- my tour guide (Kat Thida) was extremely knowledgable on her subject matter and supported me through what is a confronting experience. I could not recommend it more highly !
The tour was fantastic! The tour guide was extremely knowledgeble and engaged us by telling about Cambodia's darkest period in history with such intensity and passion. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
a brilliant half day out, my guide was brilliant, fist off all we were taken the the genocide museum, and given a guided tour, , after the tour we met the only two remaining survivors
after the museum we were taken the killing fields, again another guided tour , this tour helps you realise cambodian sad history, would recommend to do this tour while in phnom penh
Daro was excellent. Was helpful and knowledgable. Museum was grim and the Killing Fields grimmer. Bones under your feet as them had come up during rainy season. Must see for anyone coming to Cambodia first time.
A really good tour with an excellent tour guide who was very knowledgeable and spoke good English
It's seriously harrowing, with bones still rising up along the footpaths after heavy rains at the killing fields. Which is well laid out with a trail that's followed with further explanations given by the guide. There was no need for the signs for quiet. Shoes off at the monument. Then onto S21, the genocide museum. The horrors that happened here make it a wonder that amnesty was given to the torturers....again hardly the need for no smiling signs. Two survivors were there, and happy to have photos taken with you. How those 4/5 kids even survived is a miracle, as no one else did. No escapes from those walls....which once was a school. Our guide bought us a coconut for juice when we left. It s a tour not to be missed, but beware it is haunting
