“Great fun and vety informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

This half day tour is excellent. The bikes are good, sized to fit snd with helmets. Our guide-Untac-was terrific. He spoke excellent English and gave us lots of interesting information about the history of battambang and Cambodia. Cycling in the countryside is very pleasant. Highly recommended.

“Great way to see rural life!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

The one-day tour included visits to many cottage industries in rural Cambodia, which was an interesting cultural excursion. I cycled with Pisal, who was a new guide, but warm and eager to make an impression. Also, make sure you have a coffee at Soksa's Kinyei Cafe - home of two national barista champions!

“One of the best travel experiences we've had.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

I can't recommend this enough. If you like cycling it really helps, but the cycle itself really isn't strenuous. You do about 25km through the town, and a bit of the countryside. It was just wonderful - with your guide you meet local people who welcome you into their homes, talk to you about their lives and work. The Soksabike staff were fantastic, it felt responsible and incredibly interesting, without being intrusive on the locals and was a wonderfully genuine experience.

“Very good. Must do if in Battambang.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Took the 1/2 day tour today. Thought it was exceptional. Visited families that earned a living based on rice, rice related products, and other foodstuffs. At a couple stops, actually got to participate - making the rice paper, cutting the bananas to dry, etc. Very informative and gave a good sense of lifestyles and economics for rural families. Riding is 25 k and quite easy. Would highly recommend.

“Review of 1 day tour with Soksabike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I can only recommend this company. You actually the the real Cambodian life and the production of Cambodian foods/drinks by families. I had great fun and learned a lot about Cambodia. The bike tour is not even very exhausting. Also the bamboo train is a must do, as long as it works!
