    Informative, guide's English was good, but only 4/5 stars, not 5/5 because the tour was somewhat rushed and not all exhibits were visited and/or covered. If you want more time on the site, it may be better to take a tuk-tuk and hire a guide there locally.

  • 13-Jan-2020

    As sad as it is it’s a must do tour,It was a good way to get from S21 to Killing fields you do a self guided audio tour at both places, it was very hot on the bus but they did offer water.

  • 07-Jan-2020

    I knew the subject matter of this tour would be difficult and emotional but I think it was a necessary stop while in Cambodia.

  • 30-Dec-2019

    The tour was just as described; transportation to the S-21 prison then off to the Killing Fields then back to the hotel. Water was included and a documentary about Pol Pot ran during the ride to the Killing Fields. Admission to both sites was extra and our tour guide organized the purchase of our tickets. Nothing more, nothing less.

  • 11-Nov-2019

    To see the places and S21, was so very sad, but a necessary visit whilst visiting Phomn Penh. The organisation of pick ups etc, was very good.

  • 30-Oct-2019

    This is more of a shuttle service rather than a tour as you are collected and dropped off at your hotel and taken to the S21 Museum and then to the Killing Fields. They do however play an interesting documentary whilst in the bus.
    Audio guides are good at both places and would recommend this tour if you wanting a hassle free way of getting to see both places - only downside is there is only enough time at the S21 museums to do the highlights tour and would be better if they could extend duration to cover the whole audio tour.

  • 11-Jul-2019

    Tour ran on time, and nice video played in the bus while moving from one place to the next. This is not an informative tourguide, but transportation only between the sites. I would have liked possibly a little longer at S21 an additional 30 minutes would be have been nice, but it was worth the trip.

  • 24-Aug-2018

    A great way to get to both Prison S21 and the Killing Fields in one day. This is a hugely sobering experience. It fills in the background history to how world events allowed Pol Pot get into power and commit one of the worst acts of genocide you could possibly imagine.

  • 06-May-2018

    A sobering, disturbing - but necessary - experience. Every traveller to Cambodia should visit these places to have a better understanding of what the friendly, gentle Cambodian people have suffered in relatively recent times. The Prison S21 tour gives an excellent insight into the way in which many Cambodian people were treated and abused during the Pol Pot years and the Kiling Fields provides graphic evidence of the depravity that man is capable of. This tour is an inexpensive way to see both sights. The video shown on the air-conditioned bus as you travel between the prison and the Killing Fields provides a comprehensive history of the era our guide at the Prison was excellent and we even had the opportunity to speak to - and be photographed with - one of the few survivors of the prison and stills bears the scars of his torture. The audio guide included at the Killing Fields provides all the information you need to understand the significance of the place and the events that occurred there. Thoroughly recommended and excellent value for money.

    Very moving. The guide was informative and passionate. I am able to better appreciate a part of tragic history as a result.
