    I would rate this 0 stars if possible. It was a waste of time and not worth the trip down at all. Our guide, under Siem Reap Shuttle Tours, did not really explain well or provide useful information about the place. When we were ferried to a floating restaurant, it was stormy and extremely windy. One of the ceiling fan blades actually broke off. Neither the restaurant staff nor the guide apologized or thought it was serious. The tourguide should have judged/checked the weather conditions before deciding to bring us there. Overall, it was not a pleasant experience.

    Not recommended, take an half hours to pick up all the guests and took 45 mins to Tonle sap and ride a boat to a floating village and waiting for sunset on the village 1 and the half hour is so wasting time, and like been cheated, Just like a fool. This tour like Doing nothing and meaningless

    Our guide is very informative. the village is very interesting for walking around. Sunset in the lake is beautiful.

    The tour guide is very informative and friendly. It is a good experience to learn about how the villagers do for survival and how they build their houses to accommodate the wet season. It is a rare experience for us to see the rural life of Cambodia and make us appreciate what we have in life. This half day tour is definitely recommended.
  • Sai Boey 5 May 2018
    We were there end of April, dry season which the scene was totally different from wet season. After boat ride, we returned by walk on ground thru kompong phluk, the fishing village. We really open our eyes seeing the villager daily living style and realize how lucky we are born in developed country. Thanks god.

    I am happy with this Klook tour and the local agent. Although the pick up was not on time but the tour agency called up our hotel and told us to go by Tuk Tuk to the tour agency office to wait for the bus. That was ok. They paid for the Tuk Tuk anyway. We then rode in the air conditioned bus to the floating village where the bus stopped to collect tickets before driving slowly through the red earth road to the village front (Temple). From there we were given a walk-through tour along the village houses where you can see the activities carried out during dry season like mending the fishing net and drying seafood. There were poo on the red earth road here and there so be careful when walking to the berth. The air was not fresh like you would have expected from villages. From the berth, we were taken in tiny boats that fit roughly 10 person. The depth of the canal is about 0.5m according to our guide. Imagine motorized boat in such shallow muddy water. At that point no foul smell but we noticed boats passing by so closely to one another causing muddy water splashed onto passengers. The boats are operated by the villagers. It was no fun being splashed with those yucky muddy water although I did not get that personally. The canal is not that narrow that you have to move your boats so close to one another. Hopefully tour agencies can educate these villagers more. No life jacket on this part maybe fine but not when it is wet season and when the boat goes out to the lake which could range 1 -10 m depth. The tour regulator really needs to look into this seriously. We are talking about lives on board of that tiny unstable little boat. It could easily overturn when any passenger causes a move of center of gravity to one side. No safety briefing or anything done to ensure tourists safety. Upon reaching the Tonle Sap lake, there really was not much to see unless sunrise or sunset views from the floating restaurant. I would think twice eating or drinking from the floating restaurants if I were you. Bottled drinks should be fine but not fresh food prepared from the kitchen itself. The toilet was yucky and you could see yucky stuffs floating by all the time. I have been to floating village elsewhere but situated by the sea. Not as gross as this one. The restaurant kept crocodiles and rabbits. What for? That was animal cruelty. Sunset was beautiful. What an experience of Tonle Sap Lake? My late geography teacher taught me a lot on this place that feds thousands of families residing by the lake. The tour leader was nice and the bus let us alight near Hard Rock Shop to get to Pub Street for dinner. We were really hungry. Thank you for accommodating our requests. My stars rating are meant for the tour agency (Easy Tour), guide and driver. I also appreciate the experience gained from the tour as well as the beautiful sunset. A lot of us are very lucky. This village have 900 families with 5-7 children per family. The children came barefooted asking for $7 when we boarded our bus to leave. Yes, that was pitiful but stop giving to stop the begging. I would not encourage bringing children for safety reason especially during the dry season when safety jackets are not provided. Perhaps you may bring them for exposure and realization of how fortunate they are compared to the poor villagers, during wet season in bigger boats but safety jacket is a must.

    Good experience to see the fishing village. Boat ride from about 20-30 mins going to a restaurant in the middle of the lake. The tour guide was informative about the places nearby the lake. This is only a half day tour so no lunch included on the tour but overall its a good experience.
  • Shuk Yue Jocelyn 17 Apr 2018
    The tour is generally good, we went during the dry season, therefore, after taking the boat, we got to walk on ground through the village. However, one down side is that the tour guide was walking super fast, leaving us no time to actually take a look around. This tour is definitely a good relaxing one to spend a half day to take a glimpse of the local’s life.
  • MANALI PANKAJ 5 Apr 2018
    the pick up from the hotel was way earlier than mentioned and the only annoying part was to wait for people to arrive and the tour to begin. the tour was good and so was the guide.
  • Hope 30 Mar 2018
    An eye opener but not a very relaxing experience. This reminds me of the poverty in my own native land, the Philippines. And made me feel a bit sad. If you're going for a trip to Cambodia to unwind and have fun, you can skip this tour. But if you want an experience to keep you grounded and experience the livelihood of the locals, go for it.
