I took part in a class as part of an optional excursion organised by my tour company APT. It was a delightful experience: the presenters told us about Cambodian ingredients and then we cooked and ate a three course meal. Finally, we were given a booklet with these recipes and more to try at home. I would heartily recommend.

This was a truly wonderful experience. It was very unique, and my guide was very thorough. I chose the water blessing tour, which included transportation via tuktuk, a stop in a market where I got to sample fare, and ultimately a visit the the monastery where the water blessing took place. I highly recommend adding this tour if you find yourself in Siem Reap.

We did a private tour (with guide & driver), it was amazing and we learnt and saw so much. Our guide and driver were excellent and very friendly and easy to get along with. This was our first trip to real Asia (we live in Singapore, not real Asia!) Our tour started in the afternoon of the first day so we spent the morning at the Angkor National Museum which gave an excellent base to all we were to see and learn later. We then toured temples, saw the sun rise at Angkor Wat. Explored the 'honey-pot' temples and also some which were off the tourist track. Also had an evening at the Phare Cambodian Circus....amazing. We went out onto the lake to see a floating village. One of the most memorable days was visiting a village and seeing the work of Husk, a charity which Beyond Unique support. A very humbling visit, making us appreciate and be thankful for all we have. We helped make some palm wall panels (not sure of the quality of ours!) We really recommend Beyond Unique, thank you for a great trip.

Took a Phnom Penh city day tour. Very pleasent safe driver and an excellent tour guide. Air-conditioned car. Pick up from our hotel on time and a full day tour. Went out of their way at the end of the tour to drop us off at the airport. Visited all the main sights and took us to a nice local restaurant with a mad owner who does a great line in impersonating accents! Best thing about the tours was our guide who has great knowledge on Cambodia and bought home to us the horror of the Pol Pot years with the experiences of his family.
