“A must for families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

This offered a nice change for temple weary children. We did the sunset tour and heading out into the rice paddies at the end of the day was a great way to see another side of Siem Reap.

“Even better than angkor wat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Without a doubt, our best experience in Siem Reap. We did the sunset tour through the rice paddies for an hour and even I managed to master riding the quad bike just fine. As we drove through, we passed by local people farming, cows and water buffalo and little kids running out to high five us. An experience we won't forget!!

“Disrespectful scam”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Money grabbing, sexist, and racist owner.
We're an Asian group of 4, the 3 ladies in our group were flat out refused to share quads and operate the vehicle without supervision, and require individual drivers to drive for them, as told by "they drive on the other side of road". Utter disrespect.

Not sure this act was part of the scam, but the owner took one of our friend out for training and collided into a bike on the side. Compensation required as expected and insisted everyone to ride on individual quads and hire drivers.

Beware of monopoly business as such and avoid being intimidated and ripped off.

Dear Gccw,
100 reviews like this will not change my attitude and my decisions.
Young people without driving license or experience with quad bikes are not allowed to ride on their own if they failed the driving test with our instructors.
Money grabber, sexist, racist and more if you like, you were absolutely without any doubt unable to control a powerful motorcycle on your own. You refused instructors behind you, we refused to go for the tour and brought you back to your hotel at no cost, full stop.
Regards
Hervé

“This is a must do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

Did the 2hr 15 minute tour which went longer. Rode through rice paddies and villages. The Beauty of the area is stunning as are the smiles from Cambodians and their kids waving along the way. We stopped and bought some lollipops to hand out to kids at a school along with some rice. So got to meet some teachers and enjoy seeing rural life in action. I advise anyone coming to bring some pens and paper for kids at school as it is very appreciated. The bikes are also so much fun. Professional crew will look after beginners especially well. This is an excellent complementary activity to temple viewing. Do it you will not be disappointed!

“Excellent and safe fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We booked the discovery tour, which was 2 hours through the Cambodian country side. This is an excellent business run by a Breton named Herve Nicole. With his company, SAFETY COMES FIRST, NO EXCUSES! Read thoroughly on his faq and be prepared. A quad each for the discovery tour was USD 58 each. But this is the price for imported high quality and excellently maintained quads!

First off, I would advise people to book directly with the company - Quad Adventure Cambodia was the first Quad business in Siem Reap and after that, another opened right next to them which are owned and run by a rich Khmer family from Phnom Penh (Siem Reap Quad Adventure).

BOOK DIRECTLY WITH THE COMPANY AND NOT THE HOTEL!

Secondly, you'll be picked up at your hotel. They will be on time. Look for a guy in a red collared shirt! Some hotels will not even let the guys inside because they already have a higher commission deal with the other Quad company.

Once you get to the Quad Adventure Cambodia headquarters, there'll be a short lesson on riding a quad bike. If you are confident and have experience riding one, excellent! If not, they will immediately tell if you are inexperienced and a bit scared no matter what you say! But don't worry, there will be a guide sitting behind you, which I didn't mind.

Finally, you'll be off on your adventure, on the road, then through some rice paddies, along some streams, through some villages. Many children will run out and wave. Wave back!

Also AVOID THE POOP ON THE ROAD! It will seriously go EVERYWHERE if you do!

You will be asked whether you want to visit the orphanage or school. Some people think this part is a bit dodgy. There may be a suggestion to buy a bag of rice or a box of noodles to give to the kids there. Obviously, the guide takes a commission from the shop for this so seriously guys, DON'T BE SURPRISED. These are poor people just trying to make a living in every way they can. And plus, the schoolkids get rice.

Highly recommended to stop at the pagoda if you are doing this tour. It's great to look at, and if you are Buddhist, go inside and light some incense.

A stop at the crocodile farm is good too. If you are daring, go inside and hold a baby crocodile, and beware the monkeys!

This should be the next on your list aside from visiting the temples and the museum! If you can handle it, go to visit Kulen Mountain, the waterfall, Banteay Srei and Kbal Spean. That is definitely the first on our list on our next visit to Siem Reap!

Once finished and back at the quarters, you'll get a cold towelette and a bottle of water.
