Confront Cambodia's tragic past, on a guided tour of the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, a former school which served as a Khmer Rouge torture centre. Then head out of the city to the Choueng Ek Memorial, where a pagoda made up of some 8,000 human skulls marks the site of one of the infamous Killing Fields. Finish by sampling some interesting Khmer snacks and exploring how this recent history and politics continue to affect the lives of average Cambodian.

Was trying to find an appropriate title for the review but I couldn't find the words as it is very difficult to describe and appreciate a wonderful tour guided service around one of the worst event in our recent human history.
However, I am more than happy to share how glad I am for having booked the tour with Urban Adventure.
Neang, our guide today was absolutely awesome, since the moment he cheered our group at the meeting point and all the way through, guiding us through the history and culture of this beautiful country and explaining in details what we were witnessing at the killing fields and the museum.

Given the tragic & horrible story of this time in Cambodia's history it seems strange to be using the words that this was an enjoyable & interesting tour. Our guide Neang was excellent and explained the history with humility, honesty & respect for the victims, including how it impacted on his own family. This is well worth a visit, if nothing else to learn of the history & pau your own respect to the victims

It is true. As other people have reviewed, Neang was a lovely guide for the day. He was informative and interactive. The tour was laid out well for time and breaks. I would recommend this to family and friends.

A very important tour for anyone visiting Phnom Penh. Our guide Neang was very informative, making the whole experience real to us. He gave us a lot of information before we arrived then described everything we saw sensitively but in detail. This piece of recent history is not an easy trip to do but it’s definitely well worth doing.

Our guide Neang was extremely knowledgeable and took time to share information in an accessible and personable manner. Whilst the experience is very harrowing it was well worth the visit to understand more about the recent history of Cambodia and the effect on its people. Thanks Neang for your warmth and friendliness and looking after us so well.

Our tour guide Neang was excellent. He was a history lesson from beginning to end. He spoke intelligible English and answered all our questions. My husband and I would recommend him highly. He was kind, intelligent, knowledgeable, compassionate and when appropriate, funny!
Our driver was safe and made our transportation comfortable. Air conditioning was wonderful in van. We had a small group of 6, for a total of 8 with Neang and our driver.

Neang is a good guide, his English is easy to understand. Very knowledgeable, gave us all the details about the history of Cambodia during the tour. The van was clean, new and air conditioned. The Killing Field and prison were sad to see and hear, and even more awful that it happened so recently. Highly recommend. Thanks

This tour is a must in Phnom Penh! Our wonderful, highly knowledgeable and friendly guide, Neang, gave our tiny group (there were only two of us that day) great insights on the terrible past and on the day-to-day life in Cambodia. We also got some time to wander around independently, which was a huge plus. Also the driver who took us around was really polite and friendly. Highly recommended!

As heartbreaking as this tour was, seeing the killing fields and genocide museum are a must while in Cambodia. Our guide was super informative and spoke English very well. She detailed the history of the tragedy clearly and I was left with no questions. I also loved the fact that this is a small tour - it’s much more personal and meaningful that way.
