1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

It was great to have enough time to see everywhere properly, by staying two or three nights in most places, and not just rushing through like so many tours do. We had plenty of time to explore Angkor Wat and the other temples, with a ticket that let us go back later individually if we wanted.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

The island trip and beach stay at the end was lovely, but Sihanoukville town itself is a rubbish dump meets building site, so don't expeect anything of that. The traveling times between different places also generally took longer than scheduled.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, and there are many restaurants, craft centers and massage rooms you can seek out that support disabled and blind people or give opportunities to youngsters.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

I enjoyed it - I wanted to experience Cambodia itself and not just as a tag-on to Vietnam or Thailand, and this is one of very few tours that offers that,

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The people of Cambodia are amazing, so friendly and smiling. Also the wonderful flora and fauna, just fabulous, promenades of the river or ocean at dawn. Motor bike taxis and tuk tuks!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

If you go to Sihanokville try and pre book the pre nup mangrove forest; we never got to do this but if you like bird watching it might be worth a try. the regular trip most people do is snorkelling and beach and the mangrove might be more interesting.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

I am sure the money we spent trickled down to the local level and benefited the local people. We were a small group so not intrusive. There was not always a place to fill up on safe water so buying bottled water and the plastic involved is a problem; need to promote recycling more, as in India. I wonder about all those people walking all over the temples at Angkor Wat; is this causing damage; it is fantastic to be able to do it but it might be worth looking at more closely.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent value for money; Cambodia tugs at the heart strings and makes you want to help in some way.
