“Nature Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

I visited Cambodia in April earlier this year, so I'm a bit late posting this review. i took Dani's nature tour, which is essentially a insect/ arachnid hunting hike through the jungles around Angkor Thom. He warned me from the start that this activity is more spectacular in the wet season but I was really more than satisfied with all the tiny life that we saw, it ended up being the best day I spent in the country. Aside from that Dani is just a really stand up guy who clearly loves what he's doing and is eager to share it. I'd highly recommend anything he's involved with!

The forest--or what's left of it--enveloping the Temple Complex, is full of surprises, and filled with things waiting to be discovered. The rainy season (June-Nov) is definitely to best time to enjoy Cambodia's natural environment; and an Angkor Nature Tour with Bees Unlimited is a great way to go about it.

“supeb and unique insight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

we were very lucky to find Dani's tour. He met us the night before at our hotel to craft an individual programme that suited out interests and knowledge. It was a fascinating day giving us an insight into Cambodia which we could not have experienced in any other way.
We toured the market and sampled and saw a huge range of foods. Dani knew the best things to try and taste. We would advise skipping breakfast so you can really enjoy this experience. Off in a tuk tuk around several villages seeing fresh tofu and rice noodles being made, sampling rice wine, cane syrup,& cane fudge & lots of othe things at the homes of the people who made them. So different to a normal tourist trail, meeting local children and seeing people in their own homes who were obviously relaxed with Dani. Dani is a knowleageable and enthusiastic guide who knows the people, culture and history very well. This tour supports local people directly and is outstanding value for money. Don't miss it!

“Lots of fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

After three days of temples, our children were after a change of pace. Once we read the reviews about Dani we knew we had to go on one of his tours and it didn't disappoint. We are a family of four with a 9 and 11 year old. Dani met us the evening before the tour at our hotel, to get to know what we were most interested in. Very professional. We started early visiting tofu-making workshop and then on to the local markets. They were awesome. Lively and bustling and full of different sights and smells and then finished off with a local noodle breakfast. So fresh. We then headed to the villages surrounding the temples, tried handmade noodles (very tasty), tried cupping (interesting experience) and tried everything we came across by the side of the road, date fruit, cashew fruit, sugar palm juice...It was just after Khmer New Year and some festivities brewing in a local temple which we had the opportunity to see. It was a very long and very worthwhile day.

This trip is all by tuk-tuk. The few days before we had driven around in an air-conditioned car, fearful it would be too hot in a tuk-tuk, but it was really fun and the breeze keeps you cool. And Dani's choice of tuk-tuk driver was spot on. A very friendly and kind man who helped out and was very compassionate and found bags of ice from locals after my son leant against the exhaust pipe of the tuk-tuk and burnt his leg (only minor).

Dani is a native English speaker which made a huge difference for our children who could understand everything he said. They were very relaxed the whole day and engaged by what next he would show us. He tailors the day to suit you. Highly recommended. Thank you Dani. We would definitely take his tour again if we ever go back.

Although we've only been running tours now for a couple years, repeat/return clients are not uncommon...and rightly so! There's just so much to see, eat, and do during our tours--and so much is seasonal. Come again--but at a different time, and your experience will be almost totally new. We welcome all our clients back for another, different look at this Kingdom of Wonder, called Cambodia.

“Our Families Cambodia Highlight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

We wanted to show our boys the "real" Cambodia, how the people really live. Dani's trip was eye opening, educational, informative, relaxed. From the local market foods (weird and wonderful), to the villagers cottage industries (weird and wonderful) to chillaxing and reflecting on the days adventures, Having a Khmer speaking American who lives in the country means his local knowledge is great and you can really talk with the locals. Read the previous reviews and check out Dani's web page if you need more but you honestly can't go wrong in Dani's care! Thanks for all you did for us Dani. Paul,Anita,Josh and Cam.

Looking forward to taking you... and you... and you... and you... and you... and you on a tour in the weeks and months to come! And then hearing from you right here, as to whether or not our tour the highlight of your trip.

“Great alternative to temples”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

Dani Jump an America that has lived in Cambodia for 20 years. Sharing his local knowledge of the place. Extremely more interesting when a local takes you out, showing you the markets, introducing you to the sellers, the farmers and more. He took us thru the villages where they make incense, noodles, local foods, speaking with villages and children. Thanks Dani for a trip worth our while and for sure i will be coming back to see Dani again.
