I travelled with a large family and young children. Our guide was awesome. The tour was not too touristy. That is far better than the poor offering you usually have to discover the lake and life on floating villages. Last but not least, Osmose have a real positive impact which can be easily assessed during the tour.

We spent an excellent day! The guide was extremely nice and interesting, he taught us a lot about the environment and Cambodia. Wonderful trip surrounded by the birds. Tonle sap and its biodiversity Are no longer a misterious thing for us. We were happy to contribute to Osmose's purpose. (And the breakfast was amazing !!)
