Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Saigon to Ta Keo – Killing Fields and countryside trail

We meet at your hotel at Phnom Penh. Get up early and start with a shuttle transfer to Killing Fields.

Experience the painful story of country that lead to death of 2 million Cambodian people between 1974-1979. A short shuttle transfer from here brings us to Angkor era Ta Prohm temple. Take a quick tour of the temple and get ready for a ride towards Phnom Chiso Temple, situated on the top of a hill with 400 steps to climb up. Continue riding towards Takeo past some amazing lake scenery surrounded with paddy fields and lotus farms. Ta Keo is a small town situated amidst beautiful lakes. Enjoy the rest of evening walking around the town.

REVIEWS

from our friends

My husband and I did this as the kick off to our three week honeymoon in SE Asia.
We were able to pare down the bike tour to 7 to fit our needs and Ly was very helpful with booking/paying. Our guide, Quang, for Vietnam met us with the van at our friends apartment in the city and was immediately welcoming and friendly. Throughout the tour he made sure we were well fed and hydrated and was exceptional at making sure we experienced Vietnams countryside and people.

We met with Sum, our Phnom Penh guide who got us to lunch, explained a lot of the countries history and current state add gave us a knowledgable tour of Tuol Sleng. He was great as was our driver who would be with us til the end of our trip.

Our guide in Siem Reap was Jerry who was great, knew how to time the Angkor Wat (and surrounding) visits so as not to be swamped by all the other tourists doing the same and he was quite funny and personable. He also gave good advice on things to do in Siem Reap!

All in all it was a great way to see Vietnam and Cambodia! It can be hard to access the good stuff when you don’t speak the language so to have someone looking out for us was nice and biking the mazes of rice paddies and country roads put us in touch with a part of the world many westerners don’t see. It was tough going sometimes due to the heat, skinny roads and (let’s be real) butt bruising and wrist ache but it felt worth it.

The transport was effortless and the hotels were all really (mostly amazing) nice except Chau Doc, which was a big room but pretty spare and the food was suited for (apparently) westerners who did not want to be challenged remotely. It was an oddity in an otherwise great trip though and I can think of many friends I’ll be recommending this tour to anybody.

We thank you so much for the outstanding experience!

Our trip went incredibly well and was fun from start to finish. Our Guide Tan Phuc was fantastic and read the groups ability and interest well. His english was very good and we were able to share a joke as well as learn a lot about the country as we biked along. All of the accomodation was perfect as well as the different restaurants we went to for lunch and dinner. I would have no trouble recommending Phuc as a guide and the Company as a whole. We spent all of our time travelling on small local footpaths so never really had to contend with any of the hectic traffic which was just what we were after. The paths were also generally surrounded by vegetation making it cooler that being out on the open roads in the heat of the day. The timing was also very good so we never spent any time waiting for a connection or the bus at the end of the day.

We (group of 6) had an excellent 10 day trip through the by-ways of the Mekong and some of the highlights of Cambodia.

Phuc was our guide through the Mekong Delta. He navigated us through a maze of back alleys, local ferry rides and winding paths with lots of great info about the local area and the people.

After a fast ferry up the Mekong to Cambodia we toured Phnom Penh, then the back roads, guided by Heng. Heng was excellent at introducing us to the backroads, the local people and a bit of the nightlife. He adapted to our interests really well making for a really excellent trip. Our drivers, the accomodation, the bikes and overall organisation were all superb.
