What our guests tell us...

Just a selection of our great reviews!

This cyclo tour is highly recommended. I did a cyclo tour here years ago as part of an organised Mekong River tour but this tour is much much better, being able to hop on, hop off at sites of interest and the cyclo driver waits. You get a much closer feel for local life and at a slower pace on a cyclo than from a taxi or tuk tuk. It’s amazing how the rider safely weaves through the chaotic traffic of Phnom Penh. Not only is this tour good fun but it supports local cyclo drivers

The Cyclo trip was perfect! The ride was way more peaceful (even in the busy city) than a moto would have been, and we were able to stop where we wanted to and just drive on by the sights we were less interested in.

Lauren SAugust 2018

Good circuit around the city, taking in the new and the old parts of town. Drivers know the 'circuit' and stop to let one explore places of interest. Recommend!
