Know More about this tour

Meet up with your guide just outside your Phnom penh hotel and hop in comfortable air-conditioned transportation bound for your first stop. Begin your tour at Cambodias Royal palace, which stands majestically in the city centre just off the riverfront area. Several buildings are open to visitors including the Silver Pagoda whose floor is lined with solid silver tiles. Continue to the National museum. Located in a fabulous old building, the Museum is filled with art and artifacts dating back to the pre-Angkorian era. At the north end of the city is the hilltop pagoda of Wat phnom, for which the capital was named. Climb the stairs to the top of the hill for fabulous views of the city below.

In the afternoon take a look into the countrys tragic recent history with a tour of Tuol Sleng Prison (S-21) and the Killing Fields at Choeng Ek, sobering reminders of the evils of the Khmer Rouge regime. Although not a joyful tour, visiting these monuments unlocks keys to understanding the development of this still developing country. In between there is also time for a visit to the Russian market. Test out your bargaining skills as you wander through the stalls filled with souvenirs, local handicrafts, and electronic goods. Tour ends back at your hotel.

    Sam Sandra was our guide for the full day tour. She was very friendly and speak good English. She had provided us with a good insight on the Royal Family, the S21 prison and the Killing Fields. Highly recommended guide.

    We had a full day tour visiting the important historical sites as well as the markets and temples in the city. Our driver and tour guide were very friendly and accommodating to our interests and were very easy to get on with. We had a great day full of emotional discoveries of Cambodia's history and culture.

    Very historically informative, and at sometimes poignant, tour. The tour guides also know all of the great spots to take photos, and are especially helpful, and patient. The restaurant on the way, that is included, is very good. All around, great tour guides, wonderful, and memorable tour. One not to miss.

    My wife and i spent the day with Men Keam and his driver and we were escorted to all of the must see sights in Phnom Penn. They were knowledgeable, funny and gave us great insights into past and present life in Cambodia. Lunch was amazing and the historical perspective we obtained from the tour and keam was superb.

    Phnom Penh is the capital, so be aware of traffic jam during rush hour if you are planning to go to the airport of bus station. You don't need to joint a tour to see the capital, English is well spoken + they prefer tourist to pay in US$ I only spend 2 days in Phnom Penh, was planing to go on to Ho Chin Ming City in Vietnam but the visa is a tedious process and cost aprox $85 crossing by bus. If you are visiting any temples or the Royal Palace, you must cover up your arms, men and women, or you will be denied at the entrance. Otherwise, they will ask you to buy a unisex large t-shirt $6 + unisex extra large Cambodia pants $10? to wear over your own cloths in order to enter the palace. No photo allow inside the medium size palace, but you can take pics from the outside & the garden. There is a miniature size Angkor Wat model in the Royal Palace garden. In the same compound, there's a silver pagoda + other monuments, which I run out of time to check it out. No drone allow in the capital. Basically, no matter how hot the weather is in Cambodia, you must prepare/carry a jacket to cover your arms, wear shorts covering your knees in order to visit any temples. They want people to respect the temples, I am sure it is the same logic when we visit a church; you shouldn't visit a church or Senegal or mosques wearing tank tops or cami with hot pants.

    Excellent tour. From beginning to end; detail oriented to the client. Barang Bara Hin was an excellent, professional tour guide, which I highly recommend. From the palace, to the archaeological museum, to the genocide museum, and ended with a riverboat ride, (little extra). I was especially impressed by this tour, and the tour operator.
