“I recently returned from Vietnam where I experienced Saigon from night. May be my mistake but I had signed up for this tour as thought it was by cyclo. However it was a walking tour so was a bit disappointed. However our guide Va Viet (Peter) changed all that. He was so enthusiastic and made me feel safe with what I was eating. I don't enjoy spicey food so each course he made sure there was an alternative. Thoroughly enjoyed myself. Again well done Urban Adventures”

“Gof was awesome thank you”

The day starts by learning about the tragic and fascinating recent history of Cambodia. See the location where journalists camped out in 1975 on the eve of the Khmer Rouge takeover, and the ghostly building that has been left burnt-out and bullet-holed as it stood after the war.

Confront Cambodia's tragic past, on a guided tour of the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, a former school which served as a Khmer Rouge torture centre. Then head out of the city to the Choueng Ek Memorial, where a pagoda made up of some 8,000 human skulls marks the site of one of the infamous Killing Fields.

Finish by sampling some interesting Khmer snacks and exploring how this recent history and politics continue to affect the lives of average Cambodian.
