Strongly recommended

A great tour of the major sites in the morning. The palace,.Wat Phnom and Wat Ounalom are all beautiful and my very friendly guide Siphat chose a great rriverfront estaurant for lunch. The afternoon shows the darker side of Cambodian history. The visit to S21 and the killing fields at Choeung Ek were sobering and disturbing but my guide Siphat is very knowledgeable and let me go at a comfortable pace.

Nice full day in the outskirts of Phnom Penh

Interesting tour in english and a lovely day out with Siphat (who also speaks russian, if need be), very friendly and entertaining. We lost count of how many places, spots, picture taking points, temples and pagodas we saw. We also mingled with people at street food stalls and visited a silver handycraft atelier who shelters homeless children. Smooth drive out of Phnom Penh. Lots of laughing and jokes, in addition to historic and cultural anecdotes Well done, thumbs up!

Great day tour

Fantastic tour with a very knowledgeable guide. We had a lovely day and saw two amazing mountains and lots of the temples around there. We were also taken to the local area where they make handmade silver and were shown around a local food market to be able to try a selection of very traditional Cambodian dishes. I'd recommend this tour for anyone who is visiting and wants to get a look at some older temples.

Highly recommended Oudong Temples trip

My guide Me Siphat did a wonderful tour. He is friendly, knowledgeable & caring. Helped to take many nice photos. We visited a local market as well & sampled lots of delicious snacks& food. Driver (so sorry didn’t get his name) is patient & drives well. I am filled with wonderful memories. Truly enjoyable trip.

Good morning excursion off the beaten path

Great way of doing both Oudong and Phnom Prasith in one go. My guide Mr Siphat was very good, allowing for plenty of photo opportunities and patiently explaining each view and artefact with due diligence. The tour also included a trip through the food market at Oudong which is not to be missed along with a small detour to a silversmith on the Tonle Sap river. Overall a very good tour that's well off the radar of most tourists.

Wonderful Day Trip

Definately worth a day trip visiting Oudong. Tour Guides Mr. Thea & Tree were great. They arrived early and during entire tour they were very accommodating, attentive, and professional. They answered all my questions concerning the city and temples and they quite frequently interacted with the locals and monks to answer more in depth questions concerning the history and background story behind each temple or stupa that we visited. One example was while visiting one of the temples I got a chance to visit a stupa that was being built and he interacted with the construction crew and artists to guide us through what they were doing and get background information on the construction project.

Went for a day trip to Oudong. The tour guide, Mr Senh is very knowledgeable, accommodating, professional and attentive. I highly recommend him and the tour company to all. The day trip was very nice, got to see a lot of the Cambodian countryside and village life. The trip was made better by the treatment by the Tour guide Mr Senh and the driver. Mr Senh was very knowledgeable about Cambodian history, answered all questions asked in a detailed manner and was attentive to my needs, dietary requirements and comfort. Highly recommend this to any solo or small-group travelers. Definitely should explore this as a day trip from Phnom Penh. The views from Phnom Udong were amazing, looking at the Cambodian countryside. Highly recommend this tour company and Mr. Senh to all fellow travelers.

Very good experience going to the old capital of Oudong. Tour guide Mr Senh was extremely good, very professional, knowledgeable, helpful and attentive. Highly recommend Mr Senh to all, and the tour company as well. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour from start to finish. Mr Senh and our driver was helpful and attentive to my needs and dietary preferences. Highly recommend this to any solo / small groups wanting to get out of Phnom Penh and see the countryside. Views from Phnom Udong was phenomenal; very nice views of the countryside.
