Thoroughly enjoyed my time with my guide, whose name I think is Weichart. He was informative and very personable, as well attentive to my comfort. We went at a reasonable pace and stopped to take in local sites along the way. The stop at the silk farm was especially interesting as I got to learn about the process of making silk from a family who has been doing it for generations. The trail got bumpy at times, but was quite negotiable and the bike was excellent for the task at hand. I enjoyed getting out of the city and seeing a point of view that would not have been available otherwise. At our stop for lunch at the end of the tour, the food was not up to par, but served the purpose of satisfying hunger. If you enjoy bike riding, take this tour.
What a lovely way to get out of the city and experience the Cambodian countryside.I can highly recommend this tour our guide was excellent and well informed. The ferry trips were great fun and really enjoyed the whole thing. 10 out of 10!
Each of my experiences with Viator was awesome. I great appreciated getting to experience, or a least witness, locals living their day to day life. My guide was great, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The food and conversation was good,I'm considering traveling to Asia again later this year and will make Viator apart of trip. Well worth it.
Excellent experience. Only rider on the trip and so had a personal guide. Amon was a great guide. We went off the beaten track and saw the way rural people live and work but so close to Phenom Penh. I was most impressed by her open and genuine friendliness to all who she met, giving greetings to those we rode past. She was informative and professional. Highly recommended as a tour guide.
This was one of best Cambodia experiences I had in my trip.
The guide was very kind and knowledgeable person. No complaints.
You go through the traffic of Phnom Penh first. This was first little scary because no traffic lights! but if you get the feeling, it's nothing scared about. It's interesting but the traffic flows without traffic lights in Phnom Penh because they go very slow.
Then, you go to some rural areas, through cornfields, across rivers on the boat, waving to kids, visiting temples...and so many things.
