This is a difficult trip to review as I ended up doing different things than were advertised. When I was met I was informed that I was the only one on the tour and that the regular guide was ill. This gave me some immediate concerns for what I was getting myself into, but the replacement guide Smey was very helpful and enthusiastic about showing me around. It wasn't her usual tour, but she showed me two wonderful sites, but some were missed from the itinerary. I don't blame her, however, as it was a pretty last minute option to take me on by all accounts. However, it was still a great day and I learnt a lot about Phnom Penh and its people.

Exactly what we wanted.

It's difficult to say we "enjoyed" a tour that dealt with such harrowing parts of Cambodia's past, but Reya was a wonderful guide who treated the challenging subject matter with just the right balance of sensitivity, seriousness and humour. She really knows her history and gave us a fantastic overview of the country - we learned so much in a few short hours, and gained some good insights into modern Cambodia. A tough morning, but one we're very glad we did.

Tour was very cultural those i think people should be told that a musesum isnt exactly what people would think as its a prisoners camp and very graphic. Not for the faint hearted there should be more explained about this. Before people book. And when lunch is provided $7 us dollars doesnt buy much this should also be stated before people book.

Excellent tour Da our guide was absolutely brilliant she made the whole experience even better, her knowledge of both past and present events was exceptional. The tour was very well organised and ran like clockwork from start to finish.

Da was an excellent guide. Her local knowledge made our trip interesting and educational. My 13 year old daughter and I had a great day, thank you.

My wife and I did a one day tour of Phnom Penh and are extremely satisfied with its entire content. If the beginning was rather sad because of the visit to the Genocide Museum (which is a definite must since it is part oft he country’s history!), the end of the tour on a ship watching the sunset was memorable! All in all, we were able to learn much about the city, its history and were able to experience various things like taking a ferry to a neighbouring island to visit a silk producing business, among others.
This was the second tour we booked with Urban Adventures (the first one being in Ho Chi Mihn, Vietnam) and, as mentioned before, we are completely satisfied. The booking process is straight forward and the communication with the company works very well.
This review would be incomplete if we didnt mention our wonderful tour guide Picheda. She is a young and very motivated tour guide with experience who was very knowledgeable of her subject and very professional. She executed the tour very well, was very friendly and shared with us her knowledge about her country, people and traditions. She is a very nice person to spend the whole day with! We recommend her and her work unconditionally!
Thanks for everything and keep up the good work!

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.
