We were staying next door at la Villa Coloniale with my niece and just walked in Hidden's headquarters to be greeted by Sheila who told us what they do. We wanted to explore the area beyond Angkor but could not stay overnight, so we went on a one day private tour to Koh Ker, stopping at the Dam Daek market, at Beng Meala and a small local school on the way back. We ended up singing a popular French song to the kids in return for their performance... The whole day was full of great experiences, the sites were remote and beautiful, the people we met were very welcoming, and our guide was amazing - an ex teacher, and although I would naturally worry when teachers leave children education for "better" jobs, I obviously very much appreciated the knowledge and kindness.
I would do more than a day next time (much more than a day...) to leave more room to unknown situations but this day was already a wonderful teaser. Many thanks to the team at HCAT!
