Itinerary
Following a hotel pick-up, your guide will take you to the Royal Palace, built in 1866 by the French after King Norodom relocated the royal capital from Oudong. Located on the western banks of the Tonle Sap and Mekong River, the palace complex features stunning Khmer architecture, divided into 4 main compounds.


The grounds of the Palace are also home to the Silver Pagoda, which received its name because its floor is made of 5,329 silver tiles. Learn about the Khmer kings, resident at all times, with the exception of the period when the Khmer Rouge took control in 1975. See gold and jeweled Buddha statues in the Silver Pagoda, and the Angkor Wat style Bell Tower.

Then, learn about the turbulent years of the Khmer Rouge at the infamous Tuol Sleng Museum. Located in a former high school that was used as the notorious Security Prison 21, the Genocide Museum traces the story of the Killing Fields and the torture and executions that took place from 1975-79. See exhibits that tell the stories of some of the estimated 20,000 prisoners that were killed.

Return to the city center and and get stunning views of the Tonle Sap and Mekong River Side before heading back to your hotel.

Killing fields

Tea was our guide, full of information but not as engaging as some of the other guides on our travels.

Very informative and friendly.

Would highly recommend syphat as a guide. Very knowledgeable with an infectious laugh. He has first hand experience and leads you on a sad but enthralling adventure. A must do.

Opulence and depravity.

The guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the places he took us to.The Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda were stunning, and the visit to the Genocide museum and prison gave a harrowing insight into the country's so recent past.

Killing Fields and Prison tour with childhood memories.

Siphat was our wonderful guide especially for the Killing Fields and Prison part of the tour. He shared his experiences with us as a child leaving the city at 12 years old and then trying to survive the brutal regime of the Khmer Rouge. Many of his family didn’t survive. It is an emotionally exhausting day. A living history lesson.

Tolle und interessante Tour mit prägenden Eindrücken von einer traurigen History von Kambodscha

Ich wollte eine Gruppentour buchen, da ich ein Solo Traveler bin und musste für 2 Personen zahlen. War dann auch alleine und hatte eine Privattour. Der Guide Siphat war toll und wusste sehr viel. Sein Englisch war super und die Tour war sehr spannend und hat Spass gemacht!

Very thoughtfully presented your.

Our guide was truly excellent. He went out of his way to tell the story of Cambodia and the suffering that was experienced. He made sure that we were always comfortable- physically and emotionally. The transport vehicle and driver was also top class.

Informative and sensitive

We were taken pagoda, killing fields, and museum. Our guide was kind, very informative and very sensitive with the more emotionally distressing information. He allowed us time to process but did not spare details. It was a wonderful experience.

Highly informative and educational tour!

We had a great morning tour with Mr. Senh. He led us on a highly informative and educational tour of the killing fields and genocide museum providing us with a better understanding of what happened during that time period.We had already visited the Silver Palace so he easily changed plans and took us on a tour of the National Museum. In addition to his subject matter knowledge and flexibility, we appreciated him sharing other cultural and social aspects of the Cambodian people.
