Chanchesda made this tour for us. She was amazing, very knowledgable, funny and kind. If you can do the tour with her as your guide you will come away with a true insight into the suffering of the Cambodian people.

I was collected by my guide, Da, along with my fellow trip guests. The trip was, as I expected, very emotional. Da was brilliant, she was very informative and knowledgeable and also giving us our own time to wander around both the Genocide Museum and Killing Fields to have our own thoughts and process what we had seen. At the end of the trip, we went back into Phnom Penh to the market where we were treated to some local food, which was delicious. Da is a great ambassador for Phnom Penh and would choose her every time should I be back in Cambodia.

Yes Cambodia should not be about just the killing fields, and the Cambodia living arts dance was wonderful, but, you must take this tour. I would like to think its a lesson, but we havent learned a thing. But its important to learn history, and this tour gave me a chance to learn. Our guide, Da, was informative, honest and thoughtful.

Would highly recommend this trip. It's a must if visiting Phnom Penh. Our guide, Mr Neang, was very informative. It's a difficult subject matter but very important to be aware of the terrible things that once occurred in this lovely country.

This is not an easy tour to do and you should be prepared for some truly harrowing moments. The 'lowlights' that particularly got to me was the pictures of the children in one of the former cells of S21 and of course 'The Battering Tree'. How another human could behave towards human being will thankfully always be beyond me. That said and for the sake of clarity, this tour is a must do and I was very grateful to Da and the driver for their professionalism and fascinating insights and dignity of letting the facts speak for themselves.

Reya, our tour guide, is a star! Loving and kind person with great knowledge! She answered all questions we had; we had 9 people in our group but everything was planned very well and we got the chance to learn about the dark history of Cambodia. Definitely recommend this tour.
