Very good but the local delicacy eggs with half formed embryos were a bit of a surprise. We couldn't bring ourselves to eat it and may have offended our host by our refusal. Perhaps if we were asked before hand if we were interested in something like that first, would could have said yes or no prior to having the dish presented to us?
The silk farm was a real highlight. Loved helping out the local economy by buying their incredibly well made goods.

He purchased a Tarantula for us to eat (something we would never have done). we learnt so much about the culture and history. we had an amazing time and would definately use Urban adventures again. had a a great experience and our guide is a credit to your company.

The trip was a harrowing experience with the horrific events having taken place in my lifetime.The local guide - Daro - was excellent. He left nothing out but handled the whole experience in S21 and the killing fields sensitively. I think everyone should make this trip when in Phnom Penh.
Mr. David S., Phnom Penh, 16 Nov 2014
A wonderful day one-on-one with my guide Daro, a young Cambodian man with a passion for guiding and exploring. A very hot day spent travelling around the city, learning about the history, taking in the sights, playing with Tarantulas! and having a few laughs - a truly memorable experience.
Ms. Suzanne B., Phnom Penh, 27 Aug 2014
Many thanks to Daro for making this extremely sad and horrific part of the Cambodian history bearable and dare i say, enjoyable. Daro was very knowledgeable and respectful of his surroundings, and allowed the group to take in the sights and environment in their own time. Meeting the surviving men from S21 was a highlight and a real pleasure.

Insight tour! Booked the tour to S21 prison and Killing Fields and happy with the service provided: worth the price! Pick up was on time and loved that it was a small group - on the day I had the tour, there were only 3 of us. Our guide, Ne, was very knowledgeable on all the historical facts, appreciated how he walked us through the harrowing Khmer Rouge era with such insight and a deeply moving narrative of the fate of the Vietnamese at the hands of Pol Pot. Our group had several questions and Ne answered them all - a sign that he was fully immersed in the details of that era. His anecdotes also reflected the current updates on the Khmer Rouge trial (the week before our tour, 2 top leaders of the Khmer Rouge were sentenced to life imprisonment). Not to be missed when you're in Phnom Penh - it beats just having the audio guide offered on site; it was personalised and the insights you get are valuable to fully understanding VN history.

I was very fortunate to have Ne as my guide for this extremely sobering tour. He was sensitive to the nature of what we were going to experience that day but also told it to us straight as there is no way to sugar coat the atrocities that occurred at S21 or Choeung Ek.
Meeting the 2 Survivors of S21 is an experience that isn't going to leave me. I couldn't say anything because I was so close to bursting into tears.
Having taken a few tours, I can say that Ne is a fantastic guide! Knows an incredible amount and I especially appreciated his insights into current Cambodian life and challenges. The snacks and coconut water he provided for us was welcomed and enjoyed. I wish him the very best.

Very sobering tour. The reign of the Khmer Rouge was indeed a terrible time for all Cambodians.
