“Happy repeat customers”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We had an amazing time with Hidden Cambodia in 2009. They organised our hotel in Siem Reap - our tours of Angkor Wat & the surrounding areas as well as our 4wd tour to Ko Ker for an overnight stay. We took sleeping mats to one of the "dirt poor" villages where the people with nothing shared their smiles with us. We saw what a difference a well could make to these lovely people.
In 2010 our we & some friends donated a well in memory of my wife's father.
So now it's 2013 and we returned for a 3 day / 2 night 4wd trip to Bakan,Preah Vihear and of course to see our well in action which was great - the people are still doing it hard but they no longer have a 10k round trip to fetch water.
I noted that one reviewer complained ( maybe commented rather than complained ) that it was expensive compared to 5 star hotels. Well - yes but when u stop & consider 5 Star hotels are cheap in Asia, he and we had the services of the wonderful guide Yousurin from 8.00am on day one until 6pm on day 3. Plus a driver, some tours have a cook as well, a 4wd vehicle and as the other reviewer points out the most remarkable experiences with local people.
This time we took uniforms to a school & it was a priceless experience that we will never forget.
Back in our lovely hotel with running water,flushing toilets & swimming pool we reflect again on just how lucky we are & how much we take water for granted.
We will definitely be asking Hidden Cambodia ie Paul & Sheila to organise another well for us .
Of course that will probably mean we have to come back - great!
Btw they now use a different guest house in Preah Vihear where the food was good & we got a great nights sleep.

“Best part of our trip!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

My boyfriend did a lot of research before booking our dirt bike tour and this company offered the best of everything. I am a beginner and the lesson was great so I was a lot more comfortable. I don't know why anyone would suggest its overpriced, it was actually very competitive and worth every cent. It was the highlight of our time in Cambodia. If your considering doing this you should!

Many thank for you comments and review. We have many guests who wish to learn , like yourself and so we start at the beginning with them in a motocross training day , with some good ground near our office and with experienced trainers who have been at this a long time. A good bit of support is needed at the beginning of this day and we were delighted you got "up and away" in a short time! Many thanks for travelling with us.

“Highlight of Cambodia”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Siem Reap-based Hidden Cambodia is well known for its dirt bike tours, but less so for its 4WD tours. Not being motorbike riders, we opted for the "4WD, driver, guide and cook" option. The result was that our overnight trip to Koh Ker with Hidden Cambodia was the indisputable highlight of our two week stay in Cambodia.

The amazing, less-travelled temples of the Koh Ker complex were a joy to explore. In most cases we were the only people there. They are well worth the visit.

By late afternoon we arrived at the rustic Hidden Cambodia's own house, affectionately called The Lodge. Koh Ker village has no running water or electricity; the lodge is the only building with a generator (but only till the fuel runs out at about 9pm - then lights out). By our own normal standards the facilities are very sparse indeed (simple furniture, exposed to the elements, outside toilet and wash room). But a quick look around shows how palatial this most basic of amenities can seem. We were deeply grateful for what we had at the Lodge, and ever mindful of what our neighbours did not.

Before dinner, we were escorted on foot around the village, meeting locals as they prepared for their evening meals and the night ahead (before sunset and darkness descended). What a privilege that was!

Following breakfast the next day, we made our way to the local schools. This was a deeply moving and enjoyable experience which we will never forget.

More than just being a tour director, Hidden Cambodia has a deep affinity with the people and community of Koh Ker. If you desire, they will even provide advice on how you can support the villages or schools you might come in contact with.

We returned to Siem Reap via Beng Melea temple having been expertly tutored throughout our two day sojourn by our guide Yusarun, driver Mr D, and cook Asuhn (apologies to each of you for my spelling of your names). Thank you to each of you for sharing your own incredible stories with us.

We are eternally grateful to Hidden Cambodia for the matchless insights, sensitivity and learning. We cannot recommend you highly enough. We take a very special and unqiue memory of Cambodia home with us to Australia.

“Fascinating but expensive”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

We took a four wheel drive (driven by the very competent Mr Phea) and toured Northern Cambodia right up to the disputed boarder with Thailand. Our guide, Yousroeun, was truly excellent-- he has an exhaustive knowledge of Cambodia's history, culture, and current events. It's hard to put a price on a priceless experience. So I don't know if I can say this was "overpriced," but it was at least as expensive per night as a five star hotel-- and this given that one of our nights was at a farmer's house and another at a really creepy border hotel where there was a used condom in the wastepaper bin (there are no other hotels so this was the only choice). That's said, the experience was much more meaningful than a few nights in a luxury hotel.
