Small, personal tours around Phnom Penh. Take a daytrip to the Phnom Tamao Wildife rescue center where you get to pet and feed a variety of rescued and endangered animals, while being driven around by jeep. Or take a 2 day tour to the countryside to see the local life, some beautiful scenery, take a cooking course and spend a night at our family farm. Both trips include delicious home-cooked lunches and plenty of drinks.

We were very glad to have chosen this tour. Sam was our tour guide. She was very friendly and accommodating. She is very knowledgeable about the animals and very fond of them. We were picked up at 9.45am using a minibus (instead of jeep due to rainy season). The journey was about 1.5 hours and pretty bumpy. Once we're there,... More

We had Sam Phors as our travel guide for the Phnom Tamao Tour. I was in a group of 6 with 4 being friends. Sam was so down to earth and friendly, answering all of our questions and gave us good info on the animals and the park. She didn't rush us one bit. As animal lovers we took a... More

This is not our first tour with Betelnut and to be honest we had some reservations returning. It was in no way due to an unpleasant experience. Far from it. It is that sense that the second time is never as good... we were wrong. The tour was excellent and we were not disappointed. Aram, our tour guide provided us... More

Any day that starts on the back of a open backed Jeep is a good day. Pao, (spelling?) was an interesting and informative tour guide, who obviously cares about the animals and knows them well. The occasional "watch out for that animal he's grumpy" saved all six of us on the tour from some cheeky animals. There were many many... More

Betelnut Tours was fun, informative and organized. We were picked up at the Lazy Gecko on time by our amazing tour guide, Poa (sorry, I may be spelling her name wrong). The open jeep ride was fantastic, offering awesome views of Cambodia along the way. Upon arrival at the sanctuary, we bought bananas to feed the friendly "wild" monkeys that... More

We had an excellent time on this tour - animals were generally well cared for and engaging, the tour was well organised and the lunch was just excellent. A particular hilight for us was the number of times you were able to feed or par the animals and our guide was really knowledgable. Highly recommended

One of the highlights of our trip definitely! Phnom Tamao is a special place, all the animals are very well am cared for, and our guide Phors was just amazing. She knew so much, and could answer any question you had! There were animals there I had never even heard of, and their history and how they came to be... More

We took the Phnom Tamao Tour. Animals and the guide who works with passion are what we remember. Aram was our guide. We are impressed by his knowledge about animals' habits. He describes history of rescued animals in a very interesting way. We saw lots of animals. They are frendly and you can pet them, even the elephant. During the... More

We booked an overnight tour with Betelnut tours, Phnom Penh, to head to the Kirrirom Mountains (the Kampong Speu Tour). The husband and wife team (Aram and Vathana) were incredibly friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our two days with them, travelling to and staying in their farm house. Vathana is a great cook, and she cooked a great, typically... More

This is an amazing experience. A must when in Cambodia. The whole trip was awesome. Riding in the jeep, visiting all the different types of animals and the food... yum. Out tour guide Phors was very kind and helpful. She knew which animal were friendly and which were best to have caution around. I wanted to do this again. Thanks... More
