A Recent Review of this tour

This is a long trip by car but definitely worthy is as these were my favorite temples. No crowds! The drive through the countryside provides an excellent opportunity to see what life as a Cambodian farmer is like. Mr Dara explained everything from crops to animals to daily life and the time just flew by. His wonderful sense of humor adds to the trip. Highly recommended!
