What our guests tell us...
Just a selection of our great reviews!
This tour very much exceded my expectations! I learned so much about the history of Cambodia and the culture … We saw countryside homes, water buffalo lounging in the canal, tried various foods in a market, saw the local goods for sale, watched people planting rice paddies, saw a beautifully ornate temple, and relaxed in hammocks in huts over the water. I highly recommend!
This is a very good experience to see the real side of Siem Reap but not only the night market and town city area … I will definitely join the Grasshopper Tour again for my next-time trip in Siem Reap!! They really highlighted my trip so much!
Our half day bike tour of the countryside outside Siem Reap was a highlight of our stay. Our guide Heng was well informed and most considerate … The stop at a village market was fascinating, and the route through quiet country lanes gave a real feel for ordinary life outside the cities. Definitely recommended.
This is a great way to see Siem Reap away from the tourist crowds … Our guide Hang and our bike mechanic really looked out for everyone. They adapted the pace of the ride to our group and allowed us to spend more time exploring areas of our interest. We barely saw other tourists the entire morning.
