Sam K December 2017

Such a different experience to the temple ride, the scenery, meeting locals in their day to day life, in their backyard veggie patch, snacking at the market or in a hammoc were refreshing and for me bringing fond memories..

Vantha S December 2017

Highly recommend this half-day ride through the Siem Reap countryside, stopping at a farm, a school and a busy local market. Bikes were great quality.

Jake S December 2017

We did the countryside tour with Mr Muen and it was a fantastic experience. If you want to get a feel of how the Cambodian people live, this is something you should do. We visited some schools, local houses and markets and overall was an unforgettable experience.

L Guillermo R December 2017

Tu was a great guide and we really enjoyed the tour. Great way to see the real Cambodia! There were very few tourists in the areas we visited which was refreshing after visiting Angkor Wat the previous day.

azzydavy December 2017

Absolute fun and loved the experience. Our guide was Hung. Speaks English well, patient and together with his colleague that ‘guarded’ the end, gave this tour a safe and knowledgeable route. Want a different experience, join them!
