Great Food, Great Tour
morherz, Feb 2020
Lonn Thou was very knowledgeable and took me to many food stalls where we tried foods I would not normally purchase myself. Crickets, river snails with chile, frogs - all were wonderful. He was very attentive to my needs. I was totally stuffed almost before the dinner and couldn't have eaten another morsel. He still stopped and bought dessert to go for me. I would recommend this tour to those who are adventurous eaters.

Lots of yummy food with a great guide!
Sejal_P, Jan 2020
We had a blast doing this tour in Siem Reap. It ended up being just my group which made it more intimate. We went all over the city and tried lots of different food. All the street food was great. Tried some unique items as well! We had an awesome tour guide as well.
Good variety of weird and normal foods
Sonja_L, Oct 2019
Kim is a former monk who will guide you along a great variety of foods. Some are weird and exotic, such as balut and insects. Other foods are very friendly to the Western palate. Great to sample.
Seriously Street Food
Jodie H, Aug 2019
Loved the evening. We saw and had the opportunity to taste real street food as eaten by the Cambodian people. So spiders crickets scorpions frogs and more. Amongst this was shrimp and pork for the less adventurous. Fruits from the markets cut for us to try. Finishing with a restaurant meal to computed evening. The guide Mr Two was great, passionate, knowledgeable and fun.
An interesting snack!
Mark_B, Jan 2019
Our fantastic guide, Bo, told us that Cambodians don’t consider food a meal unless it is served with rice and then took us on a gastronomic tour of finger food and snacks. There is little wasted from any animal that is served as food - we ate chicken intestine, heart, ‘parsons nose’ and liver, pig intestine and ear and, of course, crickets, mealy bugs and crispy frogs! We also enjoyed the beautiful in-season fruits. Finishing off with a main course at a local restaurant. A great evening out that is highly recommended. Bo was exceptionally knowledgeable, accommodating and entertaining.

The tour guide was fantasticthe best so far in my asia travels. I didnt get an in depth history lesson and tour of opera house like in Hong Kongwe spent a full three hours plus visiting various markets, eating a huge variety of food and had a wicked good time.

Jason_W, Mar 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed the street food evening tour with a group of four including the guide, Kim. The Khemer snacks varied from grilled fish and fresh fruits to fried crickets, scorpions and steamed snails. The dinner menu offered a variety of local Khemer dishes. We each picked a main dish and found the food to be scrumptious. Note - our tummies were fine the next day. Just take the usual precautions and bring wet wipes along and enjoy the food trail!

Teresa S, Mar 2018
We were really looking forward to this tour as the final night of our mini Asia tour to celebrate my 50th birthday but unfortunately it was shockingly bad. Our tour guide Joseph if you do the tour keep your fingers crossed you dont get him had a very abrupt manner. It honestly felt like being on a school trip, he barked orders at us, barely gave us any facts about the city and instead spend about half an hour explaining how the locals buy their government owned properties. Two minutes on this subject would have sufficed. We were then taken to a Chines restaurant again the staff were rude and the place was soulless. Food and not good food was plonked down on the table with no explanation as to what it was. Our guide sat at a table by himself eating and didnt interact with anyone. The drinks were very overpriced. We then went on to the smoke and mirrors bar for the grand finale of a cocktail on the roof terrace only to find that there was a private function so we were literally dumped in a corner with not enough seats for all of us and no table. Quite frankly it was embarrassing and the singerpore sling can be purchased cheaper in any other bar or hotel in the city. Again our guide plonked himself away from the group and was more interested in his mobile phone. We ended up leaving early and getting a taxi back to our hotel, and when we told the guide we were leaving he just shrugged his shoulders and said the he was freelance and it was the companys problem not his. I dont like to leave a bad review and believe me Im not one to look for faults but this trip was absolutely awful and a total waste of money.

Thoroughly enjoyed this trip. The guide was hilarious. He took part in all the food tasting which encouraged us to do the same. The insects and other food except the fruit was cooked so give it a try.

Kim was our host and took care to make us feel comfortable with this experience. Never did we feel pressured although ALL of us were anxious! Amazingly we did manage to enjoy fire ants! And the cricket too were tasty!!!

stephen d, Feb 2018
This was so fun and like their motto says...Best day ever. We went to many local street food markets amd tried a varity of exotic foods...even scorpians and frogs, which I never dreamed I would eat. Ou guide Kim giftus ed a scarf to wear during the tour that doubled as a napkin and you definitely need it! We had so many, sometimes messy foods to try! We rode around in tuk tuks, which is a blast in itself and the drivers were great! We finished up the tour with a sit down dinner at a restaurant and shared beers and got to know our other tour members better. They were from all over the world. It was a very fun night and I highly recommend it to anyone!

Nicole_B, Jan 2018
Our guide was amazing! He took us to local markets only. We tried SO MUCH FOOD, including more ordinary things like fish and a dozen different tropical fruits we don't have back in the States and it got as crazy as several different types of critters- grasshopper, balut, scorpion, red ants, frog, etc. There was no pressure to try any of the food there were actually a few people on the tour who barely ate anything but I loved that we had the opportunity to try things we would never have eaten back home. By the time we got to the restaurant at the end of the tour, we were all already stuffed. So start the tour hungry.

Hannah G, Dec 2017
I loved the variety. We went to a market for fish, quail, fruit, desserts. Then local picnic spot I never would have known about-not Pub Street. We had insects, frog, duck egg, beef and more dessert, then restaurant for Khmer food. The guide is a cook so explained ingredients. The environment was great

Benita J, Nov 2017
Would never have experienced such foods if I tried on my own. Our guide was terrific and we managed to sample a huge range of the wild and wonderful. Top marks for this tour - better yet, it was the least expensive on offer.

Sarah B, Oct 2017
Mr Kim was great - very knowledgable and friendly, he made the experience so enjoyable. We went to 3 places to try different foods plus a restaurant at the end (I know some have complained about this but they do do local cuisine). great food and wasn’t pressured into trying the bugs :) highly recommend

Phillip G, Aug 2017
This was an interesting tour. Our guide and driver were once again excellent and we got to taste a wide range of foods from fruits to bugs, and yes spiders, scorpians, frogs and so on. If like me you are a bit doubtful about tasting bugs you don't have to, but I must say that those I did try were not as you would expect them to be. I chickened out on the scorpion and spider but tasted the rest and it wasn't as bad as you may think. If you are looking at doing something different whilst in Cambodia, my wife and I would recommend this tour to you. Phil and Janine Griffin, Australia

Charlene Z, Jul 2017
This was a definite highlight. Our guide was so much fun and we ate pig intestines, stuffed frog,red ants etc. Lots of deep fried bugs to try and lots of fabulous fruits. You wouldn't see any of this stuff by yourself so take this tour forsure. Wish I could remember our guides name He was fabulous. Went July 14th.

LihVei_O, Apr 2017
Mr Vanny our local tour guide was awesome. We only has two persons in the tour on that evening. He is also a very funny and chill guy and has lots of tales, foods history to tell. My favourite on that night is a green.papaya salad made by a lady seller at road 60 area and fried insects+cocoons!

JanetteL_E, Apr 2017
Excellent. We were the only two on the tour and our guide Kim was really good. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, including tasting crickets, silkworms and so on. We thought the tour would be in Pub St, but it wasn't. It was at the local market at 60 Metre Road. No tourists around. Only very friendly locals.
Not what we expected for a street...
Fellipe_O, Feb 2017
Not what we expected for a street food tour. By this time on our Asia vacation we had done a lot of street food tours so we knew what to expect. Although we did taste some street food, there was very little sampling of street food during this tour compared to other places. For our last meal we dined at a sit-down restaurant, and instead of offering suggestions the guide told us we could order what we liked. We could have done this on our own. Sadly it was our only food tour in Siem Reap and it wasn't a good experience. We left the city without getting a good idea of what locals eat.
