Kyle "Cambodia on a Shoestring was amazing! We had the best tour guide, Law! He made everything very simple, clear and fun. The trips were all very enjoyable and enlightening. Very well planned out. My only problem with the trip was I had bed bugs at the Banyan Leaf Hotel in Siem Reap. The hotel staff did not seem overly concerned by this but Law went out of his way to check in with me to make sure ..."

    2.0 - Rather poor

    Overall the tour got us safely from A to B and did what it said on the tin. So why was I disappointed? 1) Poor value for money. I could have done the trip myself for a third of the cost. In addition they made money out of us on optional activities which left a sour taste 2) Poor group dynamics. There was two tours doing the same itinerary, my group had 7 and the other had 16! I have no idea why this was the case but it was a shame as I didn't get along with my group. 3) The tour guide was just ok, I was disappointed he wasn't cambodian and his English wasn't great. What I would say is book G Adventures if you are a nervous traveler or want everything done for you. If not do it yourself as you have the freedom to set your own itinerary and meet the people you want to meet.

    The trip was amazing. The tour guide was so passionate and caring not only about the topic and location we were in but also about the well being of the travellers. The locations we stayed were better than I originally expected and my belongings and my personal safety was always secure. The destinations and tours within the tour were amazingly beautiful and eye opening. I really appreciated and enjoyed everything that the tour offered.

    Good basic and fast paced tour of Cambodia and a little bit of Vietnam. The highlight of the trip was our tour guide Bun, who was incredibly knowledgeable as well as being consistently very kind, helpful and organised. I would recommend this tour to other people, especially those on a budget.

    Our guid Jack was amazing, couldn't have asked for a better CEO. The traveling was a little chaotic, especially through the borders, although the buses were always waiting for us and got us to our destination safely. This trip was incredible and met great friends along the way.

    It was okay, but too stressful and the tour guide did not take care when I was sick.

    • March 1, 2016

      I was wondering if it would be possible to join the Cambodia on a shoestring tour from Siem Reap and finish up in Senoukville?

      It wouldn't be a problem for you to meet up with your group is Siem Reap on Day 2 of the tour. You are also free to leave the tour at any point before the scheduled end date. However, as these are packaged prices, should you chose to forego any of the tours inclusions this will note change the tour price.
