“an excellent day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

although it might be a little more expensive than the other trips to the floating villages its a good value for your money. You are helping the community develpment, the tour is amazing, the tour guides are excellent and everyone in the village is very nice. We also loved the food served at breakfast and lunch, In the end was a day very well spent :)

Awesome experience on the Tonle Sap Lake. maybe a little pricy but goes to a NGO and to the local community. great time on the lake, with the people in the village and perfect guide with good english!
Great to take 2 days out of the hassle of Siem Reap and temple visit!

“must do if you have the time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

we did the tour which included the bird santuary and floating villages. there were close to 10 people who signed up, so tour was $85 per person. was a little hesitant since our visit was in the beginning of the bird viewing season (mid nov), but saw plenty of them. we were able to climb up to a viewing platform in a tree, then transfer to smaller row boats to get a closer look at the nesting birds. the floating village tour included lunch, looking at an crocodile farm, weaving facillity among other things. be prepared for a long day. we were picked up from our hotel at 5:50am, and were told we would return at 3pm. didnt get back till 6pm, but it was a beautiful and relaxing day on a boat.

“Cruise spectacular”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

A great break from the 3 days of Angkor Wat, smooth and peacful sailing amongst the local villages and schools, particular of note Chong Kneas, marvel at the self sufficiency of the families and the tradespersons going boat to boat to sell their wares - and no hassle for us as the tourists. Our boat was crewed by two young lads who were brilliant, very safe and such fun as they pointe dout people and sights to us in their broken English.

“Great tour - highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

I found Osmose in tripadvisor and attended "tour 3" in a group of totally 5 people today. So far I have had no trip advisor account and have never written a review before. This tour today is the reason I signed up, as I feel I owe them an excellent review. I enjoyed the whole day so much and I can recommend this tour to everybody who wants to learn more about the ecosystem and floating village community.
During this day I also saw some other boats, packed with tourists rushing through the program. I was happy I hadn't choosen one of those - probably cheaper - alternatives. The tour guide named Ho was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable. He made this day to something special. Besides I want to mention that what this NGO has been doing in this area is just great and a bit higher price with which you support their work shouldn't hold you up from choosing this tour.
