“This tour exceeded our expectations and was made most memorable by our guide Jurgen, and our driver, Marco. I have a disability and special accommodations needed to be made for me to access the van for the tour. These two gentleman worked very hard to locate a step stool for me access the van, and treated me with dignity and respect. My husband and I were very pleased with the level of service we received and our knowledgeable tour guide.”
ITINERARY

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.
