This tour is perfect if your not spending much time in Siem Reap. We went to the rice fields and then to the lake. It was a beautiful sail across the lake as we sat at the front of the boat through the floating village. We then saw crocodiles farm, held a snake and had lunch on a nearby boat.

Out guide was very knowledgeable. We stopped at a lotus farm on the way and he explained about lotuses. We even got to take one. The floating village you see while passing by on a boat but the guide points all out. The food was good and we relaxed on hammocks for 30 min at the end before going home.

We had a great time. Our guide was very friendly and attentive. We enjoyed every moment of the tour. It was amazing to learn about the seed from its flower and fruit as well as the thread from the lotus stem. Lunch at Queen Tara was a great experience with our guide providing personal service from food to drinks. Its an experience that would stay in our mind :

A nice tour, with the right amount of time to savour the scenes and hear about the local sights and issues from a very well informed guide. Well worth doing!

We had a tourguide that was locally from there, but he didn't have an uniform or tourguide ID. He was nice and caring. We understood a lot more from him about the poor villagers and saw how those people lived. We went on the boat to floating shop with real crocodiles and the floating boat to have lunch. A child accompanied us on the boat giving tipped massage services on everyone's back if you accepted. Not that it is proper, but some liked it. It was empty on the floating restaurant, which made it very nice for us to explore around on the boat. There were hammocks where we relaxed in while waiting for our lunch. The lunch menu was quite simple and the amount of food was just about enough. All in all, it was a nice day.

The guide may not be an official certificated guide because he had no uniform and tourguide ID, but he was nice and caring. He shared lots of information with us from this place where he is originally from. We had a good understanding of the local villagers and the boattour. The floating restaurant was empty and privatized by only our group, which was nice. There were hammocks on the boat for us to relax, while waiting for our lunch. The rice dishes were a bit too simple. Seems the amount of food was just about enough. We visited the crocodiles at the floating shop and had a child accompanying us for tipped back massage.... Haha, some liked it, but some didn't find it proper.

Tonle Sap Lake is the seconde largest freshwater lake in the South East Asia. The month of April is the dry saison. The Lake is not beautiful at all, because the water is brownish and very dirty, the trash like the plastic bags and bottles were everywhere, plus the pollution by the tourism. The people live at the floating village is so poor. I can't enjoy this trip!
We are the only 2 people at this tour, so this is like our private tour. The Tour guide, the minibus driver and the boat driver are very nice people. the Meal at boat is pretty good. On the route it was very hot, but we got our 2 cold water only at final stop.

The lotus farm was interesting and I enjoyed touring the floating village, although felt quite voyeuristic being so close to people's homes and the schools.
Our tour guide was very good and chatty and answered our many questions, We would give him 5 out of 5, but due to how the animals are treated on the tour I couldn't rate this any higher.

I did not like the crocodile / fish farm. The crocodiles are not treated well, they were kept in a very small area with many crocs and they had bottles in there that kids were allowed to throw at them with no barrier or staff stopping them to try and get them to move. Also there is a python is kept in a tiny box and was thrown from person to person with no instructions on how they should hold him properly. This tour is not advised for anyone who respects animals.
