Excellent tour. It was everything I hoped for. Our tour guide M spoke excellent English, was engaging, and knowledgeable. I'm so glad we did this tour and heartily recommend it. Personally I tried everything, including crickets, silk worms, and a water beetle. But even if you don't have an adventurous palate, there's still plenty of delicious fruits to try as well.
Absolutely fabulous way to meet the locals. Our guide Lot was delightful showing us all the best spots in town. A great introduction to life in Siem Reap.
The tour was amazing! Excellent guide who showed us the local markets which are completely different from the tourist markets and also took us to a local family owned restaurant who cooked us an amazing meal which was included in the package. Highly recommend this for everyone...
Great trip! Although I might never get used to going by tuk tuk!
Great intro to the foods, fruits and general area. The guide took us to a night market and even paid for us to throw darts at balloons to win a prize. Food was good and we got a great tour of the area.
Did this tour on our first night in Siem Reap and what a great way to start.
Well worth the effort doing the tour even though we still couldn't bring ourselves to try a couple
of things (crickets for one) but tried other things we've never tried before and a lot of fruit too
Our tour guide was great which helps if you have a great night or not and the street markets we ended up at you wouldn't know it was there Thanks heaps for a great experience
My daughter and I had our own guide so it was very special. We enjoyed seeing where the locals shop and socialize. We got to try some new foods (including crickets) and we joined a street party where we were the only "tourists". Our guide then took us to one of his favourite Khmer restaurants and we had a lovely time with him over dinner. I highly recommend this tour to see another side of Cambodian life.
The tour guide was fantastic. He bought various items for us to taste and always listened to our preferences. He explained a lot about the local culture. We did this on our first night in Siem Reap so it was an excellent introduction to the area. We also had a lot of fun as part of the walk took us through a local fair ground. There were lots of rides and sideshow games. We played a game of shooting at ducks and won prizes (local beer which we really enjoyed).
Really cool. We tasted all kinds of strange exotic foods. Odd fruits that I have never seen or tried. Also for the daring they had deep fried crickets and roasted snakes. Totally worth it.
A very good tour that gave us an insight into the smells and tastes of Cambodian food markets where we saw how the locals purchased their fruits, vegetables, and meats for home consumption.
Then it was off to experience some of the unusual things that are cooked and consumed here -- crickets, silkworms, cockles, and other delicacies; one interesting item was the egg whose contents were removed through a small hole in the end, scrambled with various herbs and spices, then put back in the shell to be cooked slowly over a charcoal fire. Skewers of chicken parts and stuffed frogs, all of which had been roasted over an open fire, were tried and found quite tasty by all four of us.
Then off to a restaurant for an authentic Cambodian meal, which was a bit of a disappointment for us, because we had all experienced Asian stir-fry at home in Washington, Chicago, Toronto, and Kuala Lumpur.
Getting around by tuk-tuk was another experience not to be missed; although the evening traffic seemed a bit chaotic at times, everyone on the road seemed to know his/her place in the scheme of things, and there were no mishaps.
Our guide, who asked us to call him "Wan", through all of this was very knowledgeable, explaining the different foods, answering any questions we had, and making sure we didn't try something that might have upset our insides. His sense of humour added to our enjoyment of the evening.
It was fun and informative, I even tried a baby cricket. I do recommend highly. Two markets both different, and then to dinner which was good food, bring your own loo paper for the loo though, but don't forget to use the basket
It's an experience! I've yet to savor as the insects are not my idea of cuisine. The desserts, fruits and even frog legs are delicious,
Was a good insight to the street life of Siem Reap and the Cambodian culture. Trip was well organized and the guide explained a lot of the local circumstances / cultures.
Thought I was traveling alone, this trip is also good for teens. Planning to go back to Siem Reap with my family and will join this trip again.
This was a great way to see the markets. Our guide was very good and I think the best way to see and experience these markets is with an organized tour and a good guide. He explained the different fruits and vegetables and the food we had was very nice. I think we would have got lost and missed a lot had we tried to do the markets by ourselves.
