The lunch was fantastic and the guide was very nice and she made it a point to explain properly to us even though her language is limited. The silk Island was a good place to learn how traditional silk items are handmade and the villagers are very nice people. An enjoyable educational tour.

We had a super time - it was our first full day in Phnom Penh and we wanted an excursion but nothing too strenuous as we settled into the new time zone, etc. The hotel pickup was on time in a tuk-tuk! and the boat was clean spacious with a great upper deck. Not too crowded, great crew who were very attentive. The trip was about an hour long to Silk Island, where we disembarked onto more tuk-tuks, which we rode to the entrance of the Silk Island property. Learning about how silk is made was really interesting - so much work goes into creating the beautiful cloth they weave on the property! Of course you have a chance to buy some of their work which makes a nice story to go along with the souvenir. Tuk-tuks back to the boat, where we were served a very delicious buffet lunch on our return cruise. I thought this was a great value and a great way to see a part of Cambodia that was out of the city. Not to mention that a cruise on the river was a nice breezy way to enjoy a very hot day.

This was a well organized trip and the staff were all very accommodating . Our server, Pin, spoke English quite well and answered all our questions. The island guide was very thorough with his history and knowledge of silk cloth. His presentation was a little lengthy for me due to standing so long in the humid heat. Overall, I do recommend the cruise.

I had an absolutely LOVELY time with this tour! From the moment I arrived on the boat, I was greeted with lovely and friendly smiles from the young ladies, Pin and Lin. It was only myself and one other passenger for the entire trip, however, Pin, and Lin were wonderful with making sure that we were taken care of and enjoying ourselves with a nice refreshing welcome drink. Very gracious and super sweet hosts!

The cruise was on a beautiful day and the boat is quite comfortable with an over hang to shield you from the blazing sun. The ride was smooth, peaceful and enjoyable and I learned quite a bit about Cambodian fishing life along the way. The lunch was very good and tasty and was a great way to enjoy the scenery as we ate and chatted.

A tuk-tuk met us once we arrived on the island and took us around the Silk Farm and Pin and Lin were great in explaining the history of the island and answered any questions about the island and it's inhabitants. They were fun and quite knowledgeable. From there, we were met by a young man who was our guide for the Silk Island. He was funny, entertaining and gave us great insight into how the silk is produced by the silk worms, the step by step process which was fascinating! He took us around to the silk weavers and watched them at work and let me say, these ladies work HARD and are so incredibly talented! Talk about both an art and skill simultaneously, watching them create beautiful silk articles. the little shop that houses their finisihed products was a field day of color and texture. I had to buy several scarves and other items because everyting was just so beautifully done!

We spent a bit of the time down by the river, and then returned via tuk-tuk to the boat where we had a relaxing trip back with snacks and drinks. Pin and Lin were still as attentive at the end as they were at the beginning and we had an overall great time together. I actually was thankful that there were only two passengers which made it all the more special with Pin and Lin as our hosts.

What a fun day and would highly recommend Cambo Cruises and this tour!
