A great way to get to both Prison S21 and the Killing Fields in one day. This is a hugely sobering experience. It fills in the background history to how world events allowed Pol Pot get into power and commit one of the worst acts of genocide you could possibly imagine.

This tour is disappointing! Alot of time is wasted waiting for the tour members to return to the bus after each tour. The tour guide is also quite inexperienced. Not recommended.

A sobering, disturbing - but necessary - experience. Every traveller to Cambodia should visit these places to have a better understanding of what the friendly, gentle Cambodian people have suffered in relatively recent times. The Prison S21 tour gives an excellent insight into the way in which many Cambodian people were treated and abused during the Pol Pot years and the Kiling Fields provides graphic evidence of the depravity that man is capable of. This tour is an inexpensive way to see both sights. The video shown on the air-conditioned bus as you travel between the prison and the Killing Fields provides a comprehensive history of the era our guide at the Prison was excellent and we even had the opportunity to speak to - and be photographed with - one of the few survivors of the prison and stills bears the scars of his torture. The audio guide included at the Killing Fields provides all the information you need to understand the significance of the place and the events that occurred there. Thoroughly recommended and excellent value for money.

Very moving. The guide was informative and passionate. I am able to better appreciate a part of tragic history as a result.

It is not a tour in the first place. It more seemed like an organized transportation. They just took us to these two places. The cost of the guides would not included in the tour price. It would be cheaper if you would hire to Tuk-Tuk and do the tour by yourself if you are a small family.

Very interesting look into Cambodia history and the cruelty of Pol Pot. If you love history like me then you must do this tour!

This tour is exactly how it is described. They pick you up at your hotel if you are in a certain area of the city my hotel was in the designated area, so they picked me up, and they take you to the museum. You are than given about an hour and a half plenty of time to go through the main spots on the audio tour and then they take you to the killing fields. You are then able to tour the fields with an audio guide. Although there were others on the tour bus with me, it is a solitary experience, which was exactly what I wanted. I was quite satisfied, and I recommend this tour to anyone who prefers to experience such things solo.

The hotel pick-up is a huge plus, and makes the entire trip very convenient. We were allowed more than sufficient time to follow the in-house guides at both places, and managed to get a very in-depth and emotional recount of the gruesome details that occurred during that period. Highly recommended mode of transport to visit both places, and a great price as well!

A great way to visit these two venues with comfortable transportation and the assistance of a guide.

no problem with this tour it is exactly what is states ..it just drops you off too the two places and you pay the entry fee and are at your own pace

Was ok but very commercialized. Hop on Hop off bus was ok. Suggest finding a smaller personalised tour to go with. Was moving experience. Need to get the headphones to listen to the commentary to understand what happened.

If you want to get the best experience, I suggest you do the one-on-one tour. The group tour has 17 people and the first hour plus was just picking up people. At S 21 I could not get a guide as there were not enough Guides - I did get the audio tour. Some of the young people in the group return 30 minutes late to the bus, delaying everyone else.

However, S21 and Killing Fields are a must see in order to appreciate history.

As advertised this tour is really a bus pickup and drop off at the two locations. So, what you get is convenience for the trade off of flexibility. Given that the bus was late coming to get us we were the last pickup it meant that the two stops were quite squeezed. With the benefit of hindsight, it would be easier to organise to travel independently and get to spend a bit more time particularly at S21.

The tour absolutely exceeded our expectations however even though we followed the instructions and phoned the Phnom Penh hop off tour company and arranged a 2:00pm pick up they arrived at 2:45pm which meant that our tour was rushed as the killing Fields has a closing time of 5:30pm if you take the audio tour which is a must otherwise you will not know what is going on!!! We phoned the tour company at 2:15 and again at 2:30pm both times we were told that they would be with us in 5mins. I accept that things can go wrong and the company cannot control traffic etc but they should have been honest about the delay.

we paid for personal guide it was worth it to hear of her family experience during this time. Very sad time in Cambodia's history
very imformative

The story of the sordid genocide in Cambodian history is told with respect to the masses directly killed without being vindictive towards those perpetrators left alive. These 2 sites stand as a permanent memorial to the 3 million people killed across the nation by the Pol Pot regime. Each site is harrowing in and of itself, but to meet 2 survivors of S21 further strengthens the memory. Travel between sites can take time due to the high volume of traffic and I would recommend getting a personal/group guide to S21 rather than the audio guide.

Tour was alright. I think it would have been better doing the sites ourselves, as it felt very rushed when we were in there, and then we had long periods of sitting on the bus while they shuffled people around several busses to be dropped off. Hiring a tuk tuk for the day would have been cheaper.

Both the prison and the memorial site is so poignant and serves as reminders of the evil that ruled here not so long ago. The guide we had at the prison was fantastic. Weaving her own experience together with the history of the place to a story that was moving and thought provoking. You should not miss this dark heritage.
