Loved this excursion. Met Kimmy our wonderful guide at Gate must take the free shuttle to get to the gate. Fishing village was interesting, oh the smells...Reclining Buddha impressive, my favorite was the visit to the school. If you can, pack some simple school supplies pencils, construction paper, glue sticks, anything. They were so appreciative and it made me so happy to give. The waterfalls were pretty, we didnt swim but walked all around. If there is a lady there making fried bananas, you must try. Delicious.
One of my greatest take always from this entire trip happened sitting on the beach chatting with Kimmy, the guide. We have all been blessed with different things in our lives. Kimmy hoped to one day get to travel like me, but his smile was huge when I explained that I had to trek half way across the world to see what he gets to see everyday. We both appreciated what we have a bit more after that lovely conversation. Even though we are all different, we are all the same.
Confusing pickup location instructions. Wasted a lot of time finding tour. Fantastic guide. 10/10. Lunch disappointing. Lunch was included in the tour but Guide told us Viator only gave him US$35 to spend for lunch. 5 in the group. Lunch was underwhelming as a result. Sites great. Just pack a snack.
We loved visiting the school and bringing the students school supplies. That was definitely the highlight! Our tour guide was flexible and pleasant as to what we wanted to do.
I have already rated this tour, but I am happy to do it again. We highly recommend this tour, a truly wonderful experience with the highlight being the temple of Ream. Our guide, Chum, was amazing taking us to the places we had to see and the one we wanted to see, very informative. A marvellous trip .for anybody on a cruise with only a day to see the best.. Our food was also the best we had on our entire holiday, and we were on a cruise ship.
Cn not rate this too highly, excellent tour, and ask for Chum.
The early morning part of the excursion was too impressive. The fall that claimed to be a wonderful scene turned out to have little flow, probably it's the dry season. The travel from harbour to this first destination was somewhat long, almost one hour. I think the time spent on this trip could be better spent on other spots. The latter part of the excursion was a little more interesting when we're brought to the sandy beach near the port. Scenery was beautiful under a sunny day. All in all, we still enjoy the excursion though it actually ended a little too early than we expect for a full day excursion. The guide was a freelance working full time as a cashier in local hotel. He spoke fair english but very passionate in guiding us around.
Guide was great, driver was very diligent. A full day is really TOO LONG for this town. Lunch was at at open air restaurant, taht at first looked a bit scary. But it was clean and the food was tasty. There was a very avoidable mix up with the pick up time! We docked at 10 and were told the Pick up was 11am but the guide was told 10AM. He wasted a lot of time and we could have started earlier and missed some of the oppressive heat.
This tour was something of a disappointment to us. We were picked up from the gate to the Port and were taken to a jetty to view boats after which we were driven to a Temple. At neither place was there much explanation or conversation about what the site. We were then driven to a Beach 2 Beach from memory and advised that we could walk the beach, which we did for a 15-20 minutes. Upon returning to the place where the Guide left us, we discovered our car had left us. The Guide advised that we would have an hour to wait so we sat at a table in an open dining area as invited and waited. He then explained that this place was owned by his Family and that his Wife would prepare a lunch for us. We had lunch which was very enjoyable and of good quality and then waited for the car to return. Once the car returned, we left and were driven quite quickly and without any conversation or explanation past another beachfront, through towns and back to the Port.
Overall, we were quite annoyed and very disappointed at the lack of participation from our tour guide. This experience is not representative of previous Viator experiences in other Countries with which we have been very happy..
Horrible. A waste of money.We should have taken a cab to a beach. It was the only nice part of the tour. We had a hard time finding the guide. Vehicle was a beat up Lexus. The itinerary was a joke. A small temple, a 15 foot waterfall , a market which was filthystayed there about 5 minutes, and the beach which was nice.After the nice lunch, we cut the tour by 2 hours. I recommend a taxi to the beach. Skip a tour.
