Owner description: A unique, behind the scenes view of Cambodian village life. My name is Savet and I will take you into the heart of the countryside, see how my fellow villages make rice paper, dried banana, weave cotton and make rice wine. Come and meet my extended family, you have not seen Cambodia until you see it through local eyes. Half day, full day or personslised tours by tuk tuk and by cycle if you wish.

We've done quite a few tours around Asia, and we have to say that this was one of our favorites (if not the favorite!).
Savet is a super friendly and informative person and we had very interesting conversations about Cambodian life, politics and concerns in Cambodia. Additionally, we visited the countryside and small local businesses with no pressure to buy anything.
If you're in Battambang, this tour is the best way to spent a day and should definitely be part of your stay!
Thank you, Savet!

On my very first day in Cambodia, a friend and I went on a full day tour with Savet and had an amazing time around Battambang! It was the best introduction to cambodian life I could think of: we cycled through small villages, tried new food and learned so many things about the local life. It is a great way to experience Battamabang and the surroundings.

We've been on some great tours on our travels but Savet's tour is just wonderful, not just for the places he takes you...yes the cycling around his village and meeting his wonderful family are amazing, as are the millions of bats flying out of the cave, the killing caves were very moving and emotional..these are highlights of the tour but the thing that makes this tour is the man himself Savet, such a genuinely nice, knowledgeable and friendly guide whom you could ask all manners of questions...if you're in Battambang you NEED to do this tour you will not be disappointed...Thank you Savet for a most memorable day

We did a full day tour with Savet and had an absolute blast. He is very passionate and knowledgeable about his culture, and provided lots of interesting information throughout the day. His English is excellent and was very interactive with us in conversation; it was a unique personal experience visiting his home and village and getting a look into authentic local life. We learned about all different sorts of handicrafts from each of the surrounding villages. We even had the chance to meet his beautiful newborn baby and wife! I would highly recommend this tour, a definite highlight of Cambodia!

We spend a half day with Savet visiting his family, cycling around, going up to the mountain temple and watching the bats. He was great and his English is perfect. Due to the lack of sunshine he skipped some activities which would have not been worth it and was also adapted the price for this trip accordingly. So no rip off and lovely experience. Definitely recommended!
