This is the second time I have done this tour in 12 months, it was great both times. We were collected from our hotel and taken to the lotus flower farm. After that, we were taken to Tonle Sap lake to see the floating village which included the crocodile farm. We enjoyed a FANTASTIC lunch on board the Queen Tara boat, and then returned to our hotel. The guide we had was knowledgeable and attentive. The staff on the boat were great. I highly recommend this tour!

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.

My wife and I quite enjoyed this leisurely half day excursion after the previous 2 full days touring the Angkor Wat and surrounding Temples in high temperatures and humidity. The guide collected us from our Siem Reap hotel at 10h00 and en route to the lake pointed out the rice fields and a lotus farm to our small group. We stopped here for a short time and watched in fascination as the ladies laboriously cut the lotus stems and drew out the fibres which are made into yarn and, ultimately, clothing. On arrival at the water we boarded the boat and made our way up a rather muddy and litter-strewn creek to the main area of the lake which surprised us by being so vast - we could not see the other side. It was interesting to learn that within a few weeks the lake would become completely dry until the next rainy season. We passed many floating homes, primarily occupied by people from Vietnam, and arrived at a large platform with a souvenir shop, cafe and, surprisingly, a pen full of good-sized crocodiles taken from the lake and used for food and skins. They were kept in a rather small pen which did seem cruel but, sadly, probably no different than how some land-based farmers keep their cattle, sheep, chickens etc. We then re-boarded our boat and set off to have lunch on a nearby larger boat, the Queen Tara. Our guide took our lunch and drink orders from an extensive menu all included in the tour price and, after serving the drinks, then went off to cook the meals! This is not a fast-food restaurant and we did have to wait for some time, but in comfortable surroundings, including a hammock. The lunches were very tasty and we suffered no after ill-effects! but some of our group expressed their disappointment at not having time to navigate other parts of the lake before returning to Siem Reap However, we found it very peaceful and relaxing.and, overall, an interesting and enjoyable half day.

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.
