    Overall, the experience was amazing. Our guide was super informational as well as continuously asked us questions to ensure we were enjoying our time. We stopped by the roadside on our way to Tonle Sap Lake for stick rice and it was amazing! Seeing the process in real person was super cool and the rice was delicious.

    The ride through the village before reaching the lake was eye opening and something people that are not familiar with that way of life should experience.

    The floating ride itself was also very enlightening. However, we went at the end of the dry season so all homes were completely out of the water and the stilts were very well displayed. I would think the rainy season tour would be a bit better.

    Overall though, a great experience and would recommend.

    This is a fascinating experience. Just a short drive from Siem Reap, with a stop at a small village to walk through the daily market, then onto a flat-bottomed punt just the two of us plus our guide, the captain and his 10-year-old crew member for a fascinating journey along the river, past houses perched on poles ten or twelve metres above us. The water level in the river was low but that did not impede our progress, then we were out on the wide lake for a stop at a floating cafe and crocodile farm. On the way back we alighted at the river-side village for a walk along the main street, stopping to hand out books and pencils to the swarm of children that gathered around us - as it was a Sunday and there was no school books and pencils provided to us as part of the tour, then a stop at an enchanting roadside restaurant on the way back to town, with a choice of normal tables and chairs or large suspended swings where you could sit on cushions - and the food was excellent and included in the tour price. Our guide Billy Barang was a source of great knowledge about the river, the lake, the villages and the people, including the history of the region and the source and impacts of the great amounts of water that flow from the Himalayas to create the vast flood-plains that necessitate the building of the homes high above potential flood levels. Our driver Da was courteous, friendly and provided us with a smooth ride over the, at times bumpy, roads. This tour is extremely good value-for-money and we thoroughly recommend it/

    The trip was fantastic! The guide drove us to Kompong Lhleang Village which is an hour drive from Siem Reap central. Then we switched to a small boat which took us to the scene where we saw a lot of floating houses on the Tonle Sap Lake. The tour started at 8:30 AM and returned to Siem Reap around 2PM. The breeze over the lake was cozy and comfortable. Maybe the season was just fine, in January. Apart from Angkor Wat, it is highly recommendable tour.

    After 2 weeks in Vietnam and Cambodia, I thought I'd seen all Cambodia had to offer. I was wrong. I saw several new and interesting things on the tour. The young man who was our tour guide was fantastic. We almost told him that we didn't need to stop at the brick kiln because we'd been to another one in Vietnam, but this was a small family operation and it was fascinating to see the differences. The guide stopped to treat us to bamboo rice and it was one of our favorites of the trip if I lived there, I'd probably eat it every day.
