    My time in Cambodia well exceeded any expectations that I had of the country and especially the organized tour.  Being the only person on the tour gave me an incredibly high level of personalized service by Socheat and several local guides, particularly Rith.  You were both so knowledgeable in all areas of the temples, museums, villages, locals and surrounding areas as well as being personable and very easy to get along with.  It was a pleasure being in your company.  The itinerary covered the regular tourist spots along with many less visited and traveled.  A particular highlight for me was the village stay at Chambok – the happy village life makes you realize that you don’t need material objects to be happy.  The balance between trekking and cycling was perfect and was a much more enjoyable way of getting around with the perfect weather.  I can still taste the jack fruit in my mouth and I’m missing the fish soups every day. 

    Thank you for such a fantastic trip, I can’t wait to get to Vietnam and catch up with you again in the next 12 months!
