What You Can Expect

Phnom Penh Full-Day Small-Group City Tour

Independence Monument, Phnom Penh

Depart from your centrally located Phnom Penh hotel and head straight to the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum to delve into the disturbing past of the country. Accompanied by your knowledgeable guide, browse poignant exhibitions then head to the verdant environs of the city to see the impressive Choueng Ek Memorial, a pagoda constructed out of 8,000 human skulls excavated from the Killing Fields. 

Revitalize with a traditional lunch at an NGO training restaurant, the proceeds of which are returned to community, then travel to the Japanese Friendship Bridge by moto-remork (a traditional form of Cambodian transport) to catch a ferry to Mekong Island. Famed for its silk weaving and agriculture, the island is a picturesque example of provincial charm. Purchase locally made handicrafts as special souvenirs then wander the village in search of Buddhist temples and floating fish farms. 

Then, climb aboard a boat to watch the sun sink into the water from the Tonle Bassac. Gaze as an incandescent glow is cast over the distinctive architecture of Cambodia then return to dry land and travel back to your Phnom Penh hotel in comfort.

Our tour guide, Da, was fabulous! We spent the latter part of the day with her by ourselves as we traveled to Mekong Island. Her history and current political knowledge was incredibly genuine and made the Tuol Sleng Prison and Killing Fields all the more moving. Meeting the survivors of the prison was heartbreaking but added such value to the tour. Meeting the silkweaver's family was also incredibly special they had the cutest puppies wondering around licking our toes!. The khmer snacks were great and the lunch at Romdeng was also amazing we'd been there before but loved it! The tuk tuk driver to the island was so gracious and had the covers of the tuk tuk down to protect us as he was drenched on his bike by the rain.

Our guide, Daro, was incredibly informed and shared a great deal of information with us. He encouraged us to ask questions and discuss the things we were experiencing. He was very good at meeting the needs of everyone in the group. Even in the rain, we had an amazing day.

I have been on many Viator tours but without doubt this was the best. Although advertised as a small group tout it was out of season and we were the only takers. Our guide Da turned up on time having confirmed the evening before. The morning consisted of a harrowing but respectful visit to the Genocide Museum and the Killing Fields. Da had excellent english and was knowledgable and informative without being intrusive. Lunch at the training restaurant surpassed expectations in terms of the setting, the attentiveness of the team working there and the variety and quality of the food. The trip by Tuk Tuk and Ferry to Silk Island was an adventure in itself and the visit to the silk factory informative and pleasant - we bought but we didn't feel we had to. The trip concluded with an hour long cruise on the Mekong as the sun began to set. All in all a delightful experience.

The morning was so educational and gave a somber look at what Pol Pot did to his own
people and with such cruelty.The afternoon was much lighter and very much fun and Nean
really knew his stuff.Thanks Nean and thanks to Viator for such an interesting and fun day?

Daro did a great job as our tour guide and we had a wonderful time. His English skills were very good as was his knowledge of Cambodian history and culture. His enthusiasm and cheerful attitude were infectious and his patient and helpful attitude were exemplary.

The only thing we missed from the tour description and the posted photo was the Cyclo ride.
